Securelist • David Emm Victor Chebyshev • 03 Dec 2018

The internet is now woven into the fabric of our lives. Many people routinely bank, shop and socialize online and the internet is the lifeblood of commercial organizations. The dependence on technology of governments, businesses and consumers provides a broad attack surface for attackers with all kinds of motives – financial theft, theft of data, disruption, damage, reputational damage or simply ‘for the lulz’. The result is a threat landscape that ranges from highly sophisticated targeted...

Microsoft, Google: We've found a fourth data-leaking Meltdown-Spectre CPU hole
The Register • Chris Williams, Editor in Chief • 21 May 2018

Design blunder exists in Intel, AMD, Arm, Power processors

A fourth variant of the data-leaking Meltdown-Spectre security flaws in modern processors has been found by Microsoft and Google researchers.
These speculative-execution design blunders can be potentially exploited by malicious software running on a vulnerable device or computer, or a miscreant logged into the system, to slowly extract secrets, such as passwords, from protected kernel or application memory, depending on the circumstances.
Variants 1 and 2 are known as Spectre (CVE-20...

Google and Microsoft Reveal New Spectre Attack

Security researchers from Google and Microsoft have found two new variants of the Spectre attack that affects processors made by AMD, ARM, IBM, and Intel.
Rumors about this new flaw leaked online at the start of the month in a German magazine, but actual details were published today.
AMD, ARM, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Red Hat and Ubuntu have published security advisories at the time of writing, containing explanations of how the bugs work, along with mitigation advice.
The bugs ...

Microsoft Issues Out-Of-Band Security Update for Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008
BleepingComputer • Catalin Cimpanu • 29 Mar 2018

Microsoft issued today an out-of-band security update for 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
The security update —KB4100480— addresses a security bug discovered by a Swedish security expert earlier this week.
The bug was caused by a patch meant to fix the Meltdown vulnerability but accidentally opened the kernel memory wide open.
According to Ulf Frisk, Microsoft's January 2018 Meltdown patch (for CVE-2017-5754) allowed any app to extract or write cont...

Meltdown Patch Opened Bigger Security Hole on Windows 7
BleepingComputer • Catalin Cimpanu • 27 Mar 2018

Microsoft's Meltdown patch has opened an even bigger security hole on Windows 7, allowing any user-level application to read content from the operating system's kernel, and even write data to kernel memory.
Swedish IT security expert Ulf Frisk made the discovery earlier this month while working on PCILeech, a device he created a few years back for carrying out Direct Memory Access (DMA) attacks and dumping protected OS memory.
Frisk says that Microsoft's Meltdown patch (for CVE-2017-...

New Microsoft Bug Bounty Program Looks To Squash The Next Spectre, Meltdown

In the wake of the Meltdown and Spectre flaws, Microsoft has rolled out a new bug bounty program targeting speculative execution side channel vulnerabilities.
The limited time program is open until December  31, and offers up to $250,000 for identifying new categories of speculative execution attacks that Microsoft and other industry partners are not yet aware of.
Speculative execution side channels are a hardware vulnerability class that affects CPUs from multiple manufacturers. T...

Intel Announces CPU Hardware Protections to Prevent Future Spectre-Like Flaws
BleepingComputer • Catalin Cimpanu • 15 Mar 2018

Intel announced today that upcoming CPU models would include brand new hardware-level protections to prevent any future Meltdown and Spectre-like vulnerabilities.
Intel processors featuring these hardware-level protections will start shipping out in the second half of 2018.
The company said that these protections are currently being added to 8th Generation Intel Core processors and Intel Xeon Scalable processors (codenamed Cascade Lake).
Intel describes the new hardware protect...

Here We Go Again: Intel Releases Updated Spectre Patches
BleepingComputer • Catalin Cimpanu • 22 Feb 2018

In a press release published on Tuesday, Intel announced it resumed the deployment of CPU microcode firmware updates. These updates are meant to mitigate the Spectre Variant 2 vulnerability —CVE-2017-5715.
The Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754) and Spectre variant 1 (CVE-2017-5753) vulnerabilities —which became public at the start of the year— were fixed through software updates at the OS level.
Intel paused the deployment of Spectre v2 CPU microcode updates on January 22 after receiving...

Post-Meltdown Intel Tries to Save Face with $250,000 Bug Bounty Program
BleepingComputer • Catalin Cimpanu • 14 Feb 2018

Intel has launched a public bug bounty program with individual rewards going as far as $250,000, the company said today in a press release.
Intel had previously run a bug bounty program, but that one was limited to submissions from a few selected security researchers only.
The new bug bounty program will be hosted on the HackerOne platform, and Intel has opened up its hardware, firmware, and software products for the occasion.
Any security researcher with a HackerOne account ca...
