Newsletters: @RISK

@RISK provides a reliable weekly summary of (1) newly discovered attack vectors, (2) vulnerabilities with active new exploits, (3) insightful explanations of how recent attacks worked, and other valuable data

A key purpose of the @RISK is to provide the data that will ensure that the 20 Critical Controls (the US and UK benchmark for effective protection of networked systems) continue to be the most effective defenses for all known attack vectors. But since it is also valuable for security practitioners, SANS is making it available to the 145,000 security practitioners who have completed SANS security training and others at their organizations who hope to stay current with the offensive methods in use.

TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: CVE-2012-1723, Java runtime vulnerability. Patched in June, this client-side vulnerability is being incorporated into the Blackhole exploit kit. Public exploits are available, and reports of in-the-wild exploitation are on the rise.

============================================================
NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES
SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

#1
Title: New Java Vulnerability in Blackhole
Description: A recently released Java vulnerability - CVE-2012-1723 - has been incorporated into the Blackhole exploit kit, dramatically raising the likelihood that even relatively current systems will fall victim to its attacks. The bug, which is a complex object typing issue, is reliably exploitable in the field, and has public proof-of-concept available that gives full details on the nature of the vulnerability.

#2
Title: New Variant On An Old Exploit
Description: CVE-2012-0158, which exploits a vulnerable Windows Common Control ActiveX component, has been exploited actively in the field since before the release of a patch in April of this year. While the attacks have, to date, been very targeted in nature, they are becoming more sophisticated with time. Often dropped in RTF, DOC, or XLS files, new variants of the attack observed recently in the field have been much more stripped down than the original exploits, bypassing a step previously thought necessary to trigger the bug.

Snort SID: 21896 - 21093, 21905, 21937, 23305
ClamAV: Exploit.CVE_2012_0158

#3
Title: Kuluoz Trojan Spreading In-Field
Description: A trojan known as "Kuluoz" has been spreading rapidly in the field, according to intelligence from the Sourcefire VRT's threat monitoring network. Dropped by a variety of different means, the malware contacts C&C servers in Russia and elsewhere upon installation, and is part of a broader botnet.

Snort SID: 23244
ClamAV: Trojan-Kuluoz-4 through Trojan-Kuluoz-2311

#4
Title: CVE-2012-0677 iTunes M3U Playlist Buffer Overflow
Description: Classic buffer overflow attacks are generally rare these days, but a new one was released that attacks M3U files - which form Apple iTunes playlists - at the end of June. Public attacks exist, and the vulnerability has been incorporated into Metasploit. Given the cross-platform nature of the bug, and the ease with which it can be exploited, in-the-wild attacks will likely be ongoing for some time.
