#cybersecurity | #hackerspace | Microsoft Acquires npm: A Healthy Move for Critical Public Infrastructure

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Today, news broke that GitHub and its parent company Microsoft, acquired npm and its public repository of open source JavaScript packages.

In 2018 when Microsoft acquired Github, many in the developer community had a cautious, even emotional response. Given today’s announcement that GitHub is acquiring npm — the same concerns are likely to surface again since JavaScript is one of the world’s most popular programming languages and since the commons of the global JavaScript community reside within the fabric of npm.

On one hand, such concern is understandable. After all, open source projects are created by the community and they exist to serve the community. I can imagine the argument going like this, “npm as the central repository of JavaScript can only provide value if the community at large trusts those who are responsible for running it.” But, what is “trust”? And how do public repositories like npm, Maven Central, or even Microsoft’s NuGet gallery go about earning the trust of a global developer community?

At Sonatype we’ve been the stewards of the Central Repository (Central), the world’s largest component repository of Java and other JVM related components since 2007. Based on this experience, I’ve learned first hand how challenging it can be to serve as the steward for a public repository. I know how hard it is to gain and keep the trust of millions of open source software developers. In my humble opinion, earning trust starts with “picking up a shovel” and solving a problem on behalf of a community to help it grow and flourish. Community trust is further amplified when you can muster enough resources to solve the same problem in a reliable and scalable manner over a period of many years.

But, here’s the thing; operating a public repository in support of millions (Read more…)

#cybersecurity | hacker | Microsoft Patch Tuesday finds 115 vulnerabilities patched, 26 critical

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Micosoft’s
March 2020 Patch Tuesday released saw the company rollout patches for 115
vulnerabilities with 26 rated critical, however, in a rare event Adobe is
taking this month off publicizing no updates.

This is the second
month in a row that Microsoft has busy Patch
Tuesday
. In February the company patched 99 vulnerabilities, including one
zero day. One analyst piggy-backed on to today’s roll out to note that a
vulnerability included in February’s release, CVE-2020-0688, is being actively
exploited in the wild and even though a large number of new updates have been
issued, admins should prioritize taking care of his older CVE if they have not
done so already.

The critical
issues fixed by Microsoft this month include 58 elevation of privilege flaws
with Satnam Narang, principal research engineer at Tenable listing CVE-2020-0788,
CVE-2020-0877 and CVE-2020-0887 as the most severe. Microsoft agrees listing
them as most likely to be exploited.

“These are
elevation of privilege flaws in Win32k due to improper handling of objects in
memory. Elevation of Privilege vulnerabilities are leveraged by attackers
post-compromise, once they’ve managed to gain access to a system in order to
execute code on their target systems with elevated privileges,” he said.

Jay Goodman,
Automox’s strategic product marketing manager, cherry picked CVE-2020-0833,
CVE-2020-0824 and CVE-2020-0847 for added attention. The first two are remote
code execution vulnerabilities that could corrupt system memory giving an
attacker access in the role of the user.

“CVE-2020-0847
is also a remote code execution vulnerability, this time in VBScript. VBscript
is a scripting language used by Microsoft. It allows system admins to run
powerful scripts and tools for managing endpoints and will give the user
complete control over many aspects of the device,” he said.

CVE-2020-0847
is also a corrupt memory system issue with threat actors generally using
phishing or browser attacks to first gain entry.

In addition
to last month’s issue, Recorded Future’s Liska highlighted CVE-2020-8050,
CVE-2020-8051, CVE-2020-8052 and CVE-2020-8055. All are remote code execution
vulnerabilities in Microsoft Word that take advantage of how the software
handles objects in memory. A malicious actor would have to send and then
convince a victim to click on a malicious document to initiate an attack. However,
CVE-2020-8052 is even more dangerous and can be launched through an Outlook preview
page without the need to click on the document.

“As Recorded
Future has previously noted, Microsoft Office is among the most popular attack
vectors for cybercriminals. We expect one or more of these vulnerabilities will
be weaponized sooner rather than later,” he said.

Animesh Jain, from Qualys’ expert vulnerability management research team, pointed out that even some issues that Microsoft considers less likely to be exploited should still garner admin attention and concern. CVE-2020-0905 is a remote code execution vulnerability effecting effects the Dynamics Business Central client that falls into this category, but Jain said the fact that this is likely to reside on a critical server makes it important to patch.

Adobe fixes critical flaws in Media Encoder and After Effects – Naked Security

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

After fixing a fat pile of critical security flaws as part of last week’s Patch Tuesday update, Adobe has come back with two more that need urgent attention.

This is what’s called an out of band update, which means that a vulnerability is too risky or likely to be exploited to leave to the next scheduled update.

The first is in the Windows and macOS versions of the After Effects graphics software and affects anyone running version 16.1.2 and earlier.

Identified as CVE-2020-3765 after being reported to Adobe only days ago, the company offers little detail on the vulnerability itself beyond stating that the update:

Resolves a critical out-of-bounds write vulnerability that could lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of the current user.
