TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Yahoo released a formal policy statement

this week rebuffing Microsoft’s choice to enable Do Not Track by default
in Internet Explorer 10. The move, which they said was due to
standardization problems and a need to customize their users’ experience
on their web properties, is certain to have important ramifications for
privacy on the Internet going forward.


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

Title: Yahoo, Microsoft spar over default Do Not Track
Description: In an effort to boost privacy on the web, Microsoft has
enabled Do Not Track features by default in Internet Explorer 10, the
browser it recently released as part of Windows 8. Citing a need to
customize the user experience and a lack of standardization, however,
Yahoo - still one of the largest properties on the Web, despite recently
declining market share - announced this week that it will not honor that
setting. Privacy advocates are abuzz discussing the implications of the
decision, which is certain to spark an impassioned discussion of the
balance between privacy and user experience on the modern Internet.

Title: Samsung Kies device remote code execution
Description: The Samsung Kies - a new tablet device hailed as a unified
digital media center - is prone to multiple remote code execution
vulnerabilities, which can be exploited simply by executing portions of
its native API; attacks are presumed to exist in the wild, as Samsung’s
own documentation shows how to run arbitrary files from untrusted
sources on the Internet. This vulnerability serves as an excellent
reminder of the difficulty of securing environments with BYOD policies,
as many mobile devices barely even attempt security as an afterthought.

Title: Avaya IP Office Call Center arbitrary command execution
Description: The Avaya IP Office Call Center’s wallboard application
allows unauthenticated attackers to upload arbitrary files, and then
execute them with the permissions of the web server with a call to a
single URL. Attacks are presumed to exist in the wild due to the trivial
nature of exploitation.

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-2012-0507
Title: Oracle Java SE Remote Java Runtime Environment Code Execution
Vulnerability
Vendor: Oracle
Description: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 2 and earlier, 6 Update 30
and earlier, and 5.0 Update 33 and earlier allows remote attackers to
affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors
related to Concurrency.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: : CVE-2012-4969
Title: Microsoft Internet Explorer 7/8/9 contain a use-after-free vulnerability
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 7, 8, and 9 are
susceptible to a use-after-free vulnerability that may result in remote
code execution.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.7 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:P)

ID: : CVE-2012-4681
Title: Java 7 Applet Remote Code Execution
Vendor: Oracle
Description: Oracle Java 7 Update 6, and possibly other versions, allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted applet, as
exploited in the wild in August 2012 using Gondzz.class and
Gondvv.class.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

ID: : CVE-2012-3137
Title: Oracle Database Password Information Disclosure Vulnerability
Vendor: Oracle
Description: The authentication protocol in Oracle Database Server
10.2.0.3, 10.2.0.4, 10.2.0.5, 11.1.0.7, 11.2.0.2, and 11.2.0.3 allows
remote attackers to obtain the session key and salt for arbitrary users,
which leaks information about the cryptographic hash and makes it easier
to conduct brute force password guessing attacks, aka “stealth password
cracking vulnerability.”
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.4 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:N)

ID: : CVE-2012-2019
Title: HP Operations Agent Opcode coda.exe 0x34 Buffer Overflow
Vendor: HP
Description: Unspecified vulnerability in HP Operations Agent before
11.03.12 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unknown
vectors, aka ZDI-CAN-1325.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
