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

Title: Oracle Releases Quarterly Critical Patch Update for Various
Products, Including Java
Description: Oracle has released their quarterly set of security
bulletins for vulnerabilities that have been identified in various
Oracle products. This month’s release addresses 136 security flaws for
products such as Oracle Database Server, Fusion Middleware, Java, MySQL,
Sun Products, and more. Java had 9 security flaws patched with all of

Snort SID: 37505-37506. Additional detection pending release of
vulnerability information

Title: NTP Project Releases Update for NTPd, Addressing Various Security Issues
Description: The NTP Project has released a new version of NTPd to
address various reported security issues. This release addresses 11 low-
and medium-severity security vulnerabilities. Two of the 11 flaws are
listed as “Mitigation only” with forthcoming patches that fully address
the issue in a later release. In addition, two other flaws that were
fixed in prior releases (CVE-2015-7974, CVE-2015-7704/CVE-2015-7705) of

Snort SID: 36536, 37841-37843. Additional rules pending release of
vulnerability information

Title: Cisco Releases Five Advisories for Various Denial of Service Vulnerabilities
Description: Cisco has released five advisories for various denial of
service vulnerabilities that have been identified in various products.
Four of the five advisories are rated as high-impact while the fifth,
CVE-2016-1363, is rated critical. CVE-2016-1363 manifests due to
improperly handling HTTP URL redirects and could allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to trigger the flaw “by sending a
crafted HTTP request to an affected device.” This crafted request could
cause “a buffer overflow condition” to occur and result in a DoS
condition or arbitrary code execution. Cisco has released updated
software that addresses this vulnerability as well as the others.
