Top Vulnerability this week: CVE-2012-0469 in Mozilla Firefox,
Thunderbird and SeaMonkey: patched as of April 2012, however recent
information has been released on how to take advantage the vulnerability
and bypass DEP/ASLR. It is likely that we will see several attacks in
the wild in the near future.”


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

Title: CVE-2012-0469 Use-after-free vulnerability in the “IDBKeyRange”
interface affecting Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey
Description: This vulnerability was patched in April 2012, however,
newly released information by security firm VUPEN highlights how the
vulnerability can be leveraged in order to bypass DEP and ASLR. We
believe it will only be matter of time before unpatched versions of
Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey are targeted.

Title: CVE-2010-0188 Adobe Reader malformed TIFF remote code execution
Description: Several malicious PDF documents found in the wild are
leveraging this vulnerability in order to drop malware on Windows and
Macintosh systems. These PDFs are being used by the Blackhole exploit
kit in “drive by” exploits. You may have seen examples of this in your
environment’s email in the form of USAirways reservations, Amazon.com
orders, and other false emails. The vulnerability is a boundary check
error in the ‘Libtiff’ library when parsing specially crafted PDF
documents. Successful exploitation would cause a stack-based buffer
overflow that may lead to arbitrary code execution in the security
context of the logged in user, or terminate the application abnormally.

ClamAV: Exploit.PDF-13527, Exploit.PDF.Dropped-17

Title: Worm targeting AutoCAD
Description: A worm specially crafted to steal AutoCAD files has been
found in the wild. While the origin of this worm is unknown, AutoCAD
files are then sent to email accounts provided by 163.com and qq.com,
both Chinese companies. The malware is written in AutoLISP, a scripting
language for AutoCAD.

Title: CVE-2010-2729 and Stuxnet
Description: June 24, 2012 is when Stuxnet’s replication mechanism
leveraging CVE-2010-2729 is programmed to be deactivated. This means
that that Stuxnet will no longer spread to USB keys using that
vulnerability. This is a welcome relief in the fight against the spread
of the worm, even two years after the initial outbreak. Users need to
be aware that Stuxnet has not always taken advantage of the Windows
Print Spooler Service vulnerability. Prior to March 2010, Stuxnet used
a trick in Autorun in order to spread and this technique may still be
used.
