Posted on: 2017-05-05

The much-anticipated, tenth-anniversary edition of the Verizon DBIR has been released (http://www.verizonenterprise.com/verizon-insights-lab/dbir/2017/), once again providing a data-driven snapshot into what topped the cybercrime charts in 2016. There are just under seventy-five information-rich pages to go through, with topics ranging from distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) to ransomware, prompting us to spin a reprise edition of last year’s DBIR field guide (https://community.rapid7.com/community/infosec/blog/2016/04/29/the-2016-verizon- data-breach-investigations-report-the-defenders-perspective). Before we bust out this year’s breach-ography, let’s set a bit of context. The Verizon DBIR is digested by a diverse community, but the lessons found within are generally aimed at defenders in organizations who are faced with the unenviable task of…

In fact, it is so fast that even the consumer, the business, or even the corporation simply cannot keep with this pace. It seems like that hardly one new technology is being adopted, it is time to change and evolve into another, brand new technological platform. However, with all of this change, there is one common denominator, and it too is evolving at a very rapid pace as well: The mindset…

Misconfigured WAFs – Bypassing broken access controls protection

Posted on: 2017-05-05

In this article, I will look to build upon the previous article I wrote on finding zero-day vulnerabilities in Oracle e-business suite. The link can be found here: “Zero Day vulnerabilities on Oracle E-Business Suite” https://goo.gl/crZgQ7 In the article mentioned above, I mentioned a technique to bypass WAF. This article will, therefore, go on to explain the misconfiguration commonly found in WAF solutions. Taking a step back: In the article mentioned above, I found 12 remotely exploitable vulnerabilities with a CVSS score ranging from 4.3 to 8.2. In the below paragraph I will go on to explain the inherent problem…

An Army of Thousands of Hacked Servers Found Mining Cryptocurrencies

Posted on: 2017-05-05

A new botnet consisting of more than 15,000 compromised servers has been used to mine various cryptocurrencies, earning its master around $25,000 per month. Mining cryptocurrencies can be a costly investment, as it requires an enormous amount of computing power, but cybercriminals have found an easy money-making solution. Dubbed BondNet, the botnet was first spotted in December 2016 by GuardiCore researchers, who traced back the botnet malware developer, using online handle Bond007.01, to China. According to the GuardiCore researchers, Bond007.01 is currently using BondNet for mining cryptocurrencies — primarily Monero, but also ByteCoin, RieCoin, and ZCash — but they warn…
