Vulnerability Summary

Multiple vulnerabilities in Oracle Java 7 before Update 11 allow remote malicious users to execute arbitrary code by (1) using the public getMBeanInstantiator method in the JmxMBeanServer class to obtain a reference to a private MBeanInstantiator object, then retrieving arbitrary Class references using the findClass method, and (2) using the Reflection API with recursion in a way that bypasses a security check by the java.lang.invoke.MethodHandles.Lookup.checkSecurityManager method due to the inability of the sun.reflect.Reflection.getCallerClass method to skip frames related to the new reflection API, as exploited in the wild in January 2013, as demonstrated by Blackhole and Nuclear Pack, and a different vulnerability than CVE-2012-4681 and CVE-2012-3174. NOTE: some parties have mapped the recursive Reflection API issue to CVE-2012-3174, but CVE-2012-3174 is for a different vulnerability whose details are not public as of 20130114. CVE-2013-0422 covers both the JMX/MBean and Reflection API issues. NOTE: it was originally reported that Java 6 was also vulnerable, but the reporter has retracted this claim, stating that Java 6 is not exploitable because the relevant code is called in a way that does not bypass security checks. NOTE: as of 20130114, a reliable third party has claimed that the findClass/MBeanInstantiator vector was not fixed in Oracle Java 7 Update 11. If there is still a vulnerable condition, then a separate CVE identifier might be created for the unfixed issue.

Securelist • Kaspersky Lab • 16 Nov 2017

In early October, a story was published by the Wall Street Journal alleging Kaspersky Lab software was used to siphon classified data from an NSA employee’s home computer system. Given that Kaspersky Lab has been at the forefront of fighting cyberespionage and cybercriminal activities on the Internet for over 20 years now, these allegations were treated very seriously. To assist any independent investigators and all the people who have been asking us questions whether those allegations were tr...

Microsoft Suffered Breach of Its Vulnerabilities Database Back in 2013

Five former employees told Reuters that Microsoft quietly dealt with a hack of its vulnerabilities and bug reports database back in 2013 without telling anyone.
The former employees say Microsoft fixed all bugs and vulnerabilities contained in the hacked database within months so that the flaws would have limited use against its users.
Microsoft also investigated breaches at third-party companies in the following period to see if any of the vulnerabilities contained within the breach...

Icepol was programmed to push out its warnings in one of 25 langua...

Java under attack – the evolution of exploits in 2012-2013
Securelist • Kaspersky Lab • 30 Oct 2013

One of the biggest problems facing the IT security industry is the use of vulnerabilities in legitimate software to launch malware attacks. Malicious programs can use these vulnerabilities to infect a computer without attracting the attention of the user – and, in some cases, without triggering an alert from security software.
That’s why cyber criminals prefer these attacks, known as exploits, over other infection methods. Unlike social engineering, which can be hit or miss, the use of...

Anti-decompiling techniques in malicious Java Applets
Securelist • Vicente Diaz • 19 Aug 2013

While I was investigating the Trojan.JS.Iframe.aeq case (see blogpost) one of the files dropped by the Exploit Kit was an Applet exploiting a vulnerability:
So basically I unzipped the .jar and took a look using JD-GUI, a java decompiler. These were the resulting classes inside the .jar file:

The class names are weird, but nothing unusual. Usually the Manifest states the entry point (main class) of the applet. In this case there was no manifest, but we could see this in the ap...

Report: Malvertising Campaign Thrives on Dynamic DNS
Threatpost • Chris Brook • 11 Feb 2013

A malvertising campaign that’s lasted almost half a year is staying alive thanks to infected web advertisements being circulated by otherwise clean ad networks.
The campaign, now in its fifth month, relies on the Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) to keep it from being caught according to a report from Symantec’s Security Response blog that likens its relationship to a “never-ending story.”
Attackers have been leveraging the ads by inserting their own obfuscated J...

Attackers Exploit Java, Compromise Reporters Without Borders Site

Emergency Zero-Day Patch Does Not Quiet Calls to Disable Java
Threatpost • Michael Mimoso • 14 Jan 2013

Oracle’s emergency Java update this weekend for a zero-day sandbox bypass vulnerability hasn’t exactly kicked off a love-fest for the company among security experts. Researchers are still cautious about recommending users re-enable the ubiquitous software, despite the availability of the fix for the latest zero-day to target the platform. 
Some caution there are still ways to bypass a heightened security configuration in the update, and yet others remain concerned about f...

Java 0-Day Exploit CVE-2013-0422
welivesecurity • Robert Lipovsky • 11 Jan 2013

The infamous exploit packs Blackhole and Nuclear Pack now feature a new zero-day Java exploit that exploits the Java vulnerability CVE-2013-0422. The latest version of Java 7 Update 10 is affected.

Java 0day Mass Exploit Distribution
Securelist • Kurt Baumgartner • 09 Jan 2013

Just a quick note, it’s only the second week of January, but early 2013 brings with it the first Java 0day mass exploit distribution of the year.

There appears to be multiple ad networks redirecting to Blackhole sites, amplifying the mass exploitation problem. We have seen ads from legitimate sites, especially in the UK, Brazil, and Russia, redirecting to domains hosting the current Blackhole implementation delivering the Java 0day. These sites include weather sites, news sites, a...
