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: Oracle Releases Quarterly Critical Patch Update Advisory for Various Products
Description: Oracle has released their quarterly Critical Patch Update security advisory which addresses 248 vulnerabilities in various products, such as Java, Oracle Database, and many others. Eight vulnerabilities within Java were addressed in this advisory with three of them receiving a CVSS 2.0 score of 10.0. Additionally, two vulnerabilities which received a CVSS 2.0 score of 10.0 in Oracle GoldenGate were addressed in this release.

Snort SID: Detection pending release of vulnerability information

Title: FreeBSD Addresses SCTP ICMPv6 Error Message Flaw That Could Result in a Kernel Panic
Description: The FreeBSD Project has release a security advisory for a flaw that could cause a kernel panic, creating a denial of service condition. CVE-2016-1879 manifests as a "lack of proper input checks in the ICMPv6 processing in the SCTP stack" which results in a failed kernel assertion or a NULL pointer dereference. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could cause a vulnerable system to kernel panic, creating a denial of service condition. Note that IPv4 ICMP processing is not impacted. The FreeBSD Project has released an update to address this flaw.

Snort SID: Detection pending

Title: Hardcoded Credentials Found within AMX Conferencing Products - Patch Released
Description: Researchers at SEC Consult have discovered a set of hardcoded credentials in AMX Conferencing Products that could be used to log into devices with administrative privileges. Per the advisory, the system inserts a set of administrative credentials into the internal user database upon system boot. As a result, an attacker with knowledge of the username and password would able to log into vulnerable devices via the web interface or via SSH. Although AMX has released a patch to address the issue, it has not been tested and verified to ensure the credentials have been removed from the software.
