The modprobe child process in the ./debian/patches/load_ppp_generic_if_needed patch file incorrectly handled module loading. A local non-root attacker could exploit the MODPROBE_OPTIONS environment variable to read arbitrary root files. Fixed in 2.4.5-5ubuntu1.4, 2.4.5-5.1ubuntu2.3+esm2, 2.4.7-1+2ubuntu1.16.04.3, 2.4.7-2+2ubuntu1.3, 2.4.7-2+4.1ubuntu5.1, 2.4.7-2+4.1ubuntu6. Was ZDI-CAN-11504.
Original release date: August 31, 2020
Cisco has released a security advisory on a vulnerability—CVE-2020-3566—in the Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP) feature of Cisco IOS XR software. This vulnerability affects Cisco devices running IOS XR software that have an active interface configured under multicast routing. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to exhaust process memory of an affected device. This vulnerability was detected in exploits in the wild.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users and administrators to review the Cisco Security Advisory and take the following actions.
- Implement the recommended mitigations.
- Search for indicators of compromise.
- Apply the necessary update, when available.
Communication with stakeholders, extensive testing, and robust automation pays dividends for military intelligence agency, one of several presenters at GitLab’s virtual Commit conference.
The remote code execution flaw could allow a successful attacker to fully control the Slack desktop app on a target machine.
Multiple Android apps were found spying on users and recruiting victims’ devices into ad-fraud botnets.
