TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Phone maker Motorola was caught in a major

privacy scandal this week, as an independent security researcher showed
that certain of its phones were sending sensitive user data such as
account credentials to Motorola servers silently in the background,
without user interaction - sometimes without encryption.


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

Title: Major privacy breach discovered on Motorola phones
Description: An independent security researcher published proof this
week that Motorola phones with the Blur service installed are sending a
myriad of credentials and private information silently to Motorola
servers, as well as communicating via a modified version of the Jabber
protocol in a format reminiscent of botnet command-and-control. The
disclosure - which featured packet captures, screen shots, and a full
analysis of all of the data being sent - includes reproduction
instructions for anyone concerned about their Motorola phone behaving
in a similar manner. Impacted phone owners appear to have little
recourse at this time, as the service responsible for this information
disclosure cannot be removed without rooting the phone and installing a
stock version of Android.

Title: Metasploit module emerges for new Java sandbox bypass
Description: A Metasploit module targeting a recently patched Java
sandbox bypass was released last week. The issue - which allows for
arbitrary execution of static methods with user-supplied arguments - is
likely to be exploited heavily in the field, as it is both trivial to
implement and useful for bypassing recently implemented Java protections
that are intended to contain the scope of attacks. System administrators
are urged to patch immediately.

Title: New “Nailed” exploit kit surfaces in the wild
Description: The latest in a series of exploit kits to emerge over the
last 6 months as that model becomes more popular for attackers on the
Internet, this particular kit is noteworthy not because of its
sophistication or ability to evade defenses - but instead because of how
simplistic it is, with Metasploit developers calling it just a
re-implementation of that tool’s browser autopwn functionality. As the
barrier to entry in creating kits like this continues to drop, defenders
are continuing to see an increase in their numbers generally and
diversity in particular.

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-2013-2460
Title: Java Applet ProviderSkeleton Insecure Invoke Method
Vendor: Oracle
Description: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 21 and earlier, and OpenJDK
7, allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and
availability via unknown vectors related to Serviceability. NOTE: the
previous information is from the June 2013 CPU. Oracle has not commented
on claims from another vendor that this issue allows remote attackers
to bypass the Java sandbox via vectors related to “insufficient access
checks” in the tracing component.
