Vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Windows print spooler, an aging but important component, will be discussed at the Black Hat security conference on Thursday. The vulnerabilities are rooted in patches that Microsoft created to fix issues exploited by Stuxnet, the malware that hampered Iran's nuclear program.
The FBI is warning organizations that are still using Microsoft Windows 7 they are in danger of attackers exploiting vulnerabilities in the unsupported operating system to gain network access. The agency points to an uptick in such attack attempts.
Adobe Flash Player, which has been patched hundreds of times during its lifetime to address vulnerabilities, will no longer be supported after Dec. 31, leaving an attack vector that can be exploited by malicious actors unless it's removed. That's why eliminating all instances of Flash Player is so urgent.
Federal regulators have issued another round of security alerts about vulnerabilities in medical device products from several manufacturers, including an update on those affected by so-called "Ripple-20" flaws earlier identified in the Treck TCP/IP stack.
A vulnerability that can impede the boot-loading process of an operating system could potentially affect billions of Linux and Windows machines, according to Eclypsium. The flaw, called "BootHole," could enable an attacker to gain near total control of an infected device.
CISA is warning that threat actors are actively exploiting a remote code execution vulnerability in F5's BIG-IP network products that can lead to data exfiltration and other security issues. Earlier, researchers and F5 had urged users to patch the flaw.
Trend Micro says it has seen increasing attempts to infect home routers for use as proxies and for DDoS attacks. The battle is primarily being fought by three bot families - Mirai, Qbot and Kaiten - that enable low-level fraudsters to hide their activity.
Despite warnings from security researchers and U.S. Cyber Command earlier this month, thousands of users have not yet patched their F5 BIG-IP networking products to fix a critical vulnerability that could allow for remote code execution, according to the security firm Expanse.
Cybersecurity experts are pushing organizations to immediately patch a critical zero-day vulnerability in SAP's NetWeaver Application Server because threat actors are likely searching for networks that are susceptible to the flaw.
As cyberthreats facing healthcare organizations soar, medical device maker Becton, Dickinson and Co. has ramped up its process for coordinated disclosure of vulnerabilities to help identify, assess and communicate issues to regulators and industry stakeholders, says BD's Dana-Megan Rossi.
Security researchers warn that the number of exploit attempts targeting a critical vulnerability in F5 Networks' BIG-IP networking products has steadily increased since the company first announced the flaw late last week. They urge users to immediately apply patches.
