TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: A cross-site scripting vulnerability was

discovered in the popular Wordpress Wp-Banners-Lite plugin. Given the
popularity of using compromised WordPress installations to host
malicious content, and the hundreds of thousands of vulnerable sites
seen via Google queries at the time of publication, this vulnerability
is likely to be used widely by nefarious actors looking to cover their
tracks.


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

Title: Wordpress Wp-Banners-Lite plugin cross-site scripting
Description: A trivially exploitable cross-site scripting vulnerability
was discovered this week in the popular Wordpress Wp-Banners-Lite
plugin, with details released on the Full-Disclosure mailing list.
Administrators of vulnerable systems are urged to patch immediately;
however, given the huge numbers of neglected, vulnerable WordPress
installations in the wild, and their popularity as launching points for
other attacks, system administrators should be more concerned about
compromised sites being used to attack their users. In particularly
restrictive environments, administrators should consider blocking all
WordPress hosted sites.

Title: MongoDB command injection vulnerability
Description: A fully functional exploit for a newly discovered MongoDB
command injection vulnerability was released this week. The issue -
which stems from improper filtering of the “nativeHelper.apply” method
originally created by SpiderMonkey, and imported by MongoDB. No patch
is currently available; system administrators are urged to filter the
command wherever possible.

Title: Massive DDoS against Spamhaus reaches 300Gbps
Description: Following a dispute between Dutch hosting provider
Cyberbunker and anti-spam group Spamhous, the latter suffered what
initially began as a relatively small - 10 Gbps - DDoS, which escalated
over the course of last week to a 300Gbps flood. Anti-DDoS provider
CloudFlare noted that the attackers - who have not been conclusively
linked to Cyberbunker - were able to generate such huge volumes of
traffic by using open DNS resolvers, which can respond to small, spoofed
requests with massive floods of data. As a result of this attack - one
of the largest ever on the Internet to date - a new project has been
announced to locate and fix all of the approximately 27 million such
systems on the Internet today.
