TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: A massive dump of malware source code hit

the Internet this week, with well-known banker trojan Carberp having it
source disclosed for the first time ever. The disclosure is likely to
spawn a series of derivative pieces of malware, even as it allows
security researchers to improve detection for existing strains.


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

Title: Carberp, other malware sources leaked
Description: For the first time ever, the notorious banker trojan
Carberp has had its source code publicly leaked, after it had been on
sale in underground forums for as much as $50,000. The dissemination of
the source code means that many more variants are likely to begin
appearing soon, as the barrier to entry for creating derivatives of the
trojan has been substantially lowered. Defensive companies are currently
poring through the source, looking for improved ways to detect existing
variants of Carberp and other included malware families.

Title: Microsoft launches bug bounty program, paying up to $100,000 per
exploit
Description: In a major policy shift, Microsoft announced its first ever
bug bounty program, in which it will pay researchers who discover
vulnerabilities in Microsoft software. The program is multi-tiered, with
additional cash being given for functional exploits, and $50,000 being
available for those who can present mitigations for the bugs they
discover.

Title: Fake BlackBerry Messenger app on Google Play market downloaded
100,000 times
Description: Playing on a public announcement of an official BlackBerry
Messenger app to be released June 27, a rogue app appeared this week on
the Google Play store, claiming to be this new application and declaring
a creator name of “RIM” (despite Resarch in Motion’s recent name change
to BlackBerry). While the app was quickly pulled by Google, and damage
appears at this point in time to have been limited to nonexistent, it
highlights how rapidly problems can spread through mobile ecosystems,
even in the context of official markets.

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.
