Tokopedia – Unrestricted Deletion to All of People’s Bank Account: The simplicity in receiving payment from the online sales is certainly a dream for every seller. For actualizing this simplicity, Tokopedia has launched a feature which is “Tambah Rekening Bank” (Adding Bank Account) that could be used to receive the sales payment after every transaction processes to the buyer is conducted (in this case, after the buyer receive the item and confirm the reception of the related item). In the process, this feature itself could be used by the user to add more than one account that could be used as payment “receiver”.
Opera server breach incident: Earlier this week, we detected signs of an attack where access was gained to the Opera sync system. This attack was quickly blocked. Our investigations are ongoing, but we believe some data, including some of our sync users’ passwords and account information, such as login names, may have been compromised.
The total active number of users of Opera sync in the last month is 1.7 million, less than 0.5% of the total Opera user base of 350 million people.
Dropbox Hacked — More Than 68 Million Account Details Leaked Online: Hackers have obtained credentials for more than 68 Million accounts for online cloud storage platform Dropbox from a known 2012 data breach.
Troy Hunt verified the leak too: https://www.troyhunt.com/the-dropbox-hack-is-real/
Earlier today, Motherboard reported on what had been rumoured for some time, namely that Dropbox had been hacked. Not just a little bit hacked and not in that “someone has cobbled together a list of credentials that work on Dropbox” hacked either, but proper hacked to the tune of 68 million records.
Ubuntu Forums hack exposes 2 million users: The company that builds Ubuntu, a popular Linux distribution, has said its forums were hacked Thursday. Canonical, which develops the operating system, said in a statement on Friday that two million usernames, email addresses, and IP addresses associated with the Ubuntu Forums were taken by an unnamed attacker.
The single best way to protect yourself against credit card fraudThe attacker was able to exploit an SQL injection vulnerability in an add-on used by older vBulletin forum software.That gave the attacker access to the forum’s databases, but the company said that only limited user data was accessed and downloaded.
The statement stressed that no code or repository data was accessed, and the attacker couldn’t write data to the database or gain shell access. The attacker also didn’t gain access to any other Canonical or Ubuntu service.Since the breach, the servers were wiped, rebuilt, and hardened, passwords were changed, and the forum software was fully patched.
SSD Advisory – Wget Arbitrary Commands Execution: A vulnerability in the way wget handles redirects allows attackers that are able to hijack a connection initiated by wget or compromise a server from which wget is downloading files from, would allow them to cause the user running wget to execute arbitrary commands. The commands are executed with the privileges with which wget is running. This could prove to be quite severe when wget is launched as ‘root’.
Zero-day flaw lets hackers tamper with your car through BMW portal: Researchers have disclosed zero-day vulnerabilities affecting the BMW web domain and ConnectedDrive portal which remain unpatched and open to attack.
According to researchers from Vulnerability Labs, there are two main bugs both related to the BMW online service web app for ConnectedDrive, the connected car hub for new, internet-connected vehicles produced by the automaker.
The first flaw, found in the ConnectedDrive portal, is a VIN session vulnerability. The VIN, or vehicle identification number, is used to identify individual models connected to the service. The bug is found within the session management of VIN usage, and remote attackers can bypass validation procedures using a live session.
The session validation flaw can be exploited with a low-privilege user account, leading to manipulation of VIN numbers and configuration settings — such as compromising registered and valid VIN numbers through the ConnectedDrive portal.
The second bug is a cross-site scripting vulnerability the researchers discovered client-side on the BMW web domain in the password reset token system. The researchers call the problem a “classic” cross-site scripting vulnerability, as the security flaw does not need privileged user accounts to be exploited; instead, “low user interaction” is needed through only a payload injection into the vulnerable module.
If exploited, attackers can inject malicious code into the domain’s modules, potentially leading to session hijacking, phishing campaigns, or diverting users to malicious domains.
TP-LINK Loses Control of Two Device Configuration Domains – Slashdot: Security researcher Amitay Dan warns that tplinklogin.net, a domain through which TP-LINK router owners can configure their devices, is no longer owned by the company, and that this fact could be misused by malware peddlers. TP-LINK has confirmed that they no longer own the domain in question, and will not be trying to buy it from the unknown seller for now. Instead, they intend to change the domain in the manuals to a newer one that’s already in use.
Acunetix WVS 10 0Day SYSTEM remote command execution: Acunetix WVS 10 0Day SYSTEM remote command execution by Italian researcher Daniele Linguaglossa.
This poc show the exploitation of 2 flaw affecting Acunetix WVS 10, by exploiting them is possibile to execute command on victim machine just by scanning it, and then using a second flaw is possibile to elevate privilege till SYSTEM.
Not the first time Acunetix has serious flaws: in 2014 a simple Stack Overflow was found by Vaibhav Deshmukh:
How the Pwnedlist Got Pwned: Indeed, after about a minute of instruction, I was able to replicate Hodges’ findings, successfully adding Apple.com to my watchlist. I also found I could add basically any resource I wanted. Although I verified that I could add top-level domains like “.com” and “.net,” I did not run these queries because I suspected that doing so would crash the database, and in any case might call unwanted attention to my account. (I also resisted the strong temptation to simply shut up about this bug and use it as my own private breach alerting service for the Fortune 500 firms).
When a WordPress Plugin Goes Bad: Custom Content Type Manager (CCTM) is a relatively popular plugin with three years of development, 10,000+ active installs, and a satisfaction rating of 4.8. It helps create custom post types. Website owners find the classical “blog format” too restrictive, use the plugin to add custom elements to their posts. So far so good.
This week we cleaned one infected site and found a very suspicious auto-update.php file inside wp-content/plugins/custom-content-type-manager/.
