TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: OpenSSL Security Advisory and Updates

Released


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: OpenSSL Security Advisory and Updates Released
Description: OpenSSL has issued a security advisory for OpenSSL
addressing 5 vulnerabilities. The severity of all 5 of the
vulnerabilities varies from low to moderate and vary from
denial-of-service to double-free and NULL dereference conditions. This
advisory also addresses Logjam, the TLS protocol flaw, by rejecting
handshakes with D-H parameters shorter than 768 bits.

Title: LastPass Issues Advisory of Internal Breach
Description: LastPass has issued a security advisory, informing users
that they detected suspicious activity on their network. No encrypted
user vault data was compromised. However, LastPass account email
addresses, password reminders, server per user salts, and authentication

Title: Remote Code Execution Vulnerability Discovered on Samsung Phones
Description: NowSecure has disclosed the discovery of a remote code
execution vulnerability on Samsung phones. This vulnerability can
exploited by an attacker that has a privileged position in a network by
manipulating the update mechanism of the Swift keyboard, a pre-installed
keyboard application on Samsung devices that cannot be removed by the
user.

Title: Privilege Escalation Vulnerability in Ubuntu Patched
Description: Canonical has released a security advisory for
CVE-2015-1328, a privilege escalation vulnerability. The vulnerability
is due to overlayfs filesystem improperly checking file permissions when
