Last Day to Save $400 on 4-6 Day Courses at SANS Cyber Defense Initiative 2017!

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.

NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES
SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: ISC Releases Security Advisory for BIND To Resolve Denial of Service Attack
Description: ISC has released a security advisory for BIND to address CVE-2017-3135, a denial of service vulnerability. CVE-2017-3135 manifests under certain conditions when both DNS64 and RPZ are used to rewrite query responses. In some instances, query processing "can resume in an inconsistent state" and result in a assertion failure or NULL pointer dereference. Workarounds to avoid this vulnerability are possible, but ISC recommends BIND should be upgraded as updated that address this vulnerability have been made available.
Reference: https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01453
Snort SID: Detection pending release of vulnerability information

Title: Adobe Releases Security Bulletins for Flash Player, Digital Editions, and Campaign
Description: Adobe has released three security bulletins for Flash Player, Digital Editions, and Campaign. In total, 24 vulnerabilities were resolved across the three bulletins with 13 Flash Player flaws fixed, 9 Digital Editions flaws fixed, and 2 Campaign flaws fixed. The Flash Player bulletin notes that all 13 flaws could possibly lead to remote code execution with all them being memory corruptions, heap buffer overflows, use-after-frees, integer overflows, and type confusion flaws.

RECENT VULNERABILITIES FOR WHICH EXPLOITS ARE AVAILABLE
COMPILED BY THE QUALYS VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

This is a list of recent vulnerabilities for which exploits are available. System administrators can use this list to help in prioritization of their remediation activities. The Qualys Vulnerability Research Team compiles this information based on various exploit frameworks, exploit databases, exploit kits and monitoring of internet activity.

ID: CVE-2016-9244
Title: F5 BIG-IP SSL Information Disclosure Vulnerability
Vendor: F5
Description: A BIG-IP virtual server configured with a Client SSL profile that has the non-default Session Tickets option enabled may leak up to 31 bytes of uninitialized memory. A remote attacker may exploit this vulnerability to obtain Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) session IDs from other sessions. It is possible that other data from uninitialized memory may be returned as well.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

ID: CVE-2017-3823
Title: Cisco WebEx Google Chrome Extension Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Cisco
Description: An issue was discovered in the Cisco WebEx Extension before 1.0.7 on Google Chrome, the ActiveTouch General Plugin Container before 106 on Mozilla Firefox, the GpcContainer Class ActiveX control plugin before 10031.6.2017.0126 on Internet Explorer, and the Download Manager ActiveX control plugin before 2.1.0.10 on Internet Explorer. A vulnerability in these Cisco WebEx browser extensions could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the affected browser on an affected system. This vulnerability affects the browser extensions for Cisco WebEx Meetings Server and Cisco WebEx Centers (Meeting Center, Event Center, Training Center, and Support Center) when they are running on Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability is a design defect in an application programing interface (API) response parser within the extension. An attacker that can convince an affected user to visit an attacker-controlled web page or follow an attacker-supplied link with an affected browser could exploit the vulnerability. If successful, the attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the affected browser.
