TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: The Java 0-day counter site jokingly put

together by industry analysts recently was reset to 0 earlier this week,
as Polish firm Security Explorations announced that a vulnerability in
Java 7u21 was being exploited in the wild by exploit kits. Nearly
simultaneously, Metasploit code for a similar issue in Java 7u17 was
released, with reports that this bug is also being dropped by exploit
kits in the wild. Users are urged to patch their systems immediately
against both vulnerabilities


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

Title: Fresh Java issues being exploited in the wild
Description: A new Metasploit module for the Java 7u17 sandbox bypass
emerged over the weekend, causing massive confusion within the security
industry when Polish firm Security Explorations issued a bulletin
regarding a new Java 7u21 0-day sandbox bypass. Both issues are being
exploited in the wild by exploit kits, with Cool and Redkit specifically
being known to use these bugs, and others likely to follow shortly.
Users are urged to patch their systems immediately, as fixes for both
issues have been released by Oracle.

Title: Nagios Remote Plugin Executor metacharacter filtering vulnerability
Description: Fresh exploit code was recently released for a patched
vulnerability in certain Nagios server installations, which allows
unauthenticated attackers to execute arbitrary commands through clever
use of escape sequences. System administrators are urged to ensure that
they have upgraded their systems to NRPE 2.14 or later.

Title: Siemens SIMATIC WinCC multiple vulnerabilities
Description: A slew of major vulnerabilities were recently disclosed in
the Siemens SIMATIC WinCC module, used to configure devices of that
type, including information disclosure and remote code execution issues.
While patches are available from the vendor at this time, exploitation
would be trivial, and is presumed to be happening on a targeted basis
in the wild. System administrators should ensure that all machines with
this software are patched immediately.

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-2013-1362
Title: Nagios Remote Plugin Executor Arbitrary Command Execution
Vendor: nagios.org
Description: A remote exploitation of an input validation error
vulnerability in versions prior to 2.14 of Nagios, as included in
various vendors’ operating system distributions, could allow attackers
to execute arbitrary commands on the targeted host.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 7.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

ID: CVE-2013-0632
Title: Adobe ColdFusion APSB13-03 Remote Exploit
Vendor: Adobe
