Drupal Warns Web Admins to Update CMS Sites to Patch a Critical Flaw

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

drupal website hacking

If you haven’t recently updated your Drupal-based blog or business website to the latest available versions, it’s the time.

Drupal development team yesterday released important security updates for its widely used open-source content management software that addresses a critical and three “moderately critical” vulnerabilities in its core system.

Considering that Drupal-powered websites are among the all-time favorite targets for hackers, the website administrators are highly recommended to install the latest release Drupal 7.69, 8.7.11, or 8.8.1 to prevent remote hackers from compromising web servers.

Critical Symlinks Vulnerability in Drupal

The only advisory with critical severity includes patches for multiple vulnerabilities in a third-party library, called ‘Archive_Tar,’ that Drupal Core uses for creating, listing, extracting, and adding files to tar archives.

The vulnerability resides in the way the affected library untar archives with symlinks, which, if exploited, could allow an attacker to overwrite sensitive files on a targeted server by uploading a maliciously crafted tar file.

Due to this, to be noted, the flaw only affects Drupal websites that are configured to process .tar, .tar.gz, .bz2, or .tlz files uploaded by untrusted users.

According to Drupal developers, a proof-of-concept exploit for this vulnerability already exists and considering the popularity of Drupal exploits among hackers, you may see hackers actively exploiting this flaw in the wild to target Drupal websites.

Moderately Critical Drupal Vulnerabilities

Besides this critical vulnerability, Drupal developers have also patched three “moderately critical” vulnerabilities in its Core software, brief details of which are as follows:

  • Denial of Service (DoS): The install.php file used by Drupal 8 Core contains a flaw that can be exploited by a remote, unauthenticated attacker to impair the availability of a targeted website by corrupting its cached data.
  • Security Restriction Bypass: The file upload function in Drupal 8 does not strip leading and trailing dot (‘.’) from filenames, which can be used by an attacker with file upload ability to overwrite arbitrary system files, such as .htaccess to bypass security protections.
  • Unauthorized Access: This vulnerability exists in Drupal’s default Media Library module when it doesn’t correctly restrict access to media items in certain configurations. Thus, it could allow a low-privileged user to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information that is otherwise out of his reach.

According to the developers, affected website administrators can mitigate the access media bypass vulnerability by unchecking the “Enable advanced UI” checkbox on /admin/config/media/media-library, though this mitigation is not available in 8.7.x.

Web Application Firewall

All the above “moderately critical” vulnerabilities have been patched with the release of Drupal versions 8.7.11 and 8.8.1, and at the time of writing, no proof-of-concept for these flaws have been made available.

Since a proof-of-concept exists for the critical Drupal vulnerability, users running vulnerable versions of Drupal are highly recommended to update their CMS to the latest Drupal core release as soon as possible.

CYBERSECURITY VERY #WEAK AT #CRITICAL #DUTCH WATER #MANAGEMENT #SITES

Water locks and pumping stations in the Netherlands are in danger of being hacked due to inadequate computer hardware and software, according to an investigation published by the Telegraaf. Security software is updated just about every five years, a sign of poor maintenance, and the computer systems that control the water operations date back as far as the mid-1980s, the newspaper said.

“Locks and pumping stations can always be operated manually. You can never be totally safe, you never know what might happen,” a spokesperson for the association of local water boards told the paper. Security is a top priority, but manual operation is always available in case the automated systems are hacked, the spokesperson added.

Business association Evofenedex called noted the urgency of maintaining critical infrastructure for the transportation of goods. “The hacking of a sea container terminal earlier this year at the Port of Rotterdam shows that importance. That hack cost Dutch businesses tens of millions of euros from delays and product damages,” an Evofenedex spokesman said.

Software and hardware updates are a key method of thwarting hackers searching for known vulnerabilities. By hacking a water lock or a pump, a hacker could control the gates that determine if water is blocked or released.

The newspaper also raised issue with the poor choice of passwords used to access remote operations of sewage pumps and locks.

Attackers #Increasingly #Turning to Personal #WordPress Sites to Mine #Crypto

Attackers #Increasingly #Turning to Personal #WordPress Sites to Mine #Crypto

We’ve heard the many stories about hackers looking to mine cryptos making their way into large businesses computer networks to do their deeds. However, average people with WordPress sites are just as vulnerable, and they are increasingly being targeted.

A WordPress research firm just released a report detailing the growing problem, and it includes ways to detect hackers, as well as ways to keep them out in the first place.

Here, we’ll go over their findings.

WordPress site owners beware

The thought of a company hacking large companies to mine digital currencies took many by surprise. The most striking was Showtime, whose hit was discovered in September. We recently told you about Politifact, which was hit this month.

These grabbed headlines, but individuals with WordPress that may be used just for their personal blogs are just as vulnerable, according to research site Wordfence.

It found that these mainstream sites are increasingly being targeted. Consider that an estimated 25% of websites worldwide are powered by WordPress, and you can see why the popularity of these mining attacks would likely rise too, notes Wordfence.

It says it’s been monitoring the crypto mining malware situation closely over the course of October and is starting to see attacks attempting to upload mining malware, and site cleaning customers that are already infected.

The attacks we have analyzed are all trying to exploit well-known security vulnerabilities that have been around for a long time; for example, the Gravity Forms exploit from mid-2016, or the Joomla com_jce exploit from early 2014. We have also seen quite a few attempts to insert mining code using compromised WordPress administrator accounts, as well as some attacks using compromised FTP accounts.

Money driver

The research firm Checkpoint analyzed the profit potential for an attacker planting this malware, and found successful hackers who can attack an average of 1,000 users at the same time across all infected sites would generate $2,398 a month.

Due to the lucrativeness of these schemes, they will continue to grow. It was noted that although that attacks that attempt to embed cryptomining malware are currently unsophisticated, these attackers are thought to likely increase their skills just because of the money they stand to make.

Also expected is for attacks on higher-traffic websites to increase because there’s more money to be made with them.

Protect yourself

The tool of choice to protect your computer from crypto mining attacks is CoinHive.

Checkpoint notes the risks of not protecting yourself from this very real threat:

Aside from damaging their machines, users put themselves at risk for DOS attacks and additional injected code. It will become ever more necessary to ensure that users are protected from such attempts.

While popular, we told you how CoinHive still may not keep these devious, bad actors out. Such was the case of Politifact, in which CoinHive could not have done anything to prevent that particular incident.

The lesson to be learned is that you should be on guard if you have a WordPress site, as attackers are increasingly seeing these popular sites as prey.
