Windows 8 Has A Friendlier Blue Screen Of Death


While Windows 8 was widely expected to have a black screen of death, the developer build released yesterday has revealed that Redmond has opted to stick with the historic blue. It does, however, come with a peculiar twist. Rather than inundate people (who hopefully remembered to save their work) with a breakdown of why their computer stopped working, it seems Microsoft has chosen to take things in a more compassionate direction.

Unlike the classic, wordy blue screen of yore, the latest version instead makes a sad face at the user. In addition to flashing that large frown, the new BSoD also provides some key search terms just in case the user feel likes digging into what just happened. Users are given a few seconds to write it down or commit it to memory before before the PC automatically restarts, and voila: it’s back to business.

It’s a step in the right direction, as the classic blue screen was nigh unintelligible to most users. This latest version manages to make the process a little less headache-inducing, but I (perhaps naively) long for the day when Microsoft can tell me in plain English why my computer just failed.

Android malware outsmarts bank security.

By Greg Masters
Anti-virus won't detect it.

A variant of the SpyEye trojan dubbed SpitMo can steal bank account details and redirect transaction validation SMSes from Android phones.

SpitMo, or SpyEye for mobile, imposed templated fields on targeted banks' web pages requesting that customers fill in a mobile phone number and the international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) number of the device, a unique signature for a specific phone.

It meant criminals no longer needed to generate a certificate and issue an updated installer to snag the IMEI number, saving them up to three days.

The latest iteration of the trojan injected a message that dupes bank customers into clicking on a phony app download.

By clicking on the installer labelled "set the application," users are walked through steps that download and install the malware.

A user is then instructed to dial a number, which provides an alleged activation code to access the bank's site. In reality, that call is rerouted by the Android malware and a fake activation code is issued.

At this point, all incoming SMS messages will be intercepted and transferred to the attacker's command-and-control server.

What makes the new variant particularly meddlesome is the fact that it is unlikely to be detected as there is no visual evidence of it on the dashboard.

Users are not aware that they have been infected and that their text messages are being hijacked.

SpyEye trojan was found by Trusteer researchers in July when it was stealing troves of personal information and bank accounts. At the time, researchers said the malware was capable of evading transaction monitoring systems that look for anomalies, and observed new variants appearing frequently.

SpitMo was first detected in April by security firm F-Secure and was this week found by Trusteer researchers to be attacking the Android mobile operating system.

While the infection rate at this point is yet to snowball into a major epidemic, Trusteer researchers are advising organisations to "act now and install a desktop browser security solution as part of a multilayered security profile."

Synopsis: Important: jakarta-commons-daemon-jsvc security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:1291-01
Product: JBoss Enterprise Web Server
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1291.html
Issue date: 2011-09-14
CVE Names: CVE-2011-2729
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

A jsvc update for JBoss Enterprise Web Server 1.0.2 on Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 that fixes one security issue is now available from the Red Hat
Customer Portal.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Description:

jsvc is a service wrapper that allows Java applications to be run as
daemons.

It was found that jsvc did not correctly drop capabilities after starting
an application. If an administrator used jsvc to run an application, and
also used the "-user" option to specify a user for it to run as, the
application correctly ran as that user but did not drop its increased
capabilities, allowing it access to all files and directories accessible to
the root user. (CVE-2011-2729)

Note: This flaw only affected users running JBoss Enterprise Web Server
1.0.2 from jboss-ews-1.0.2-RHEL4-[arch].zip as provided from the Red Hat
Customer Portal, as versions for other products are not built with
capabilities support.

All users running JBoss Enterprise Web Server 1.0.2 as provided from the
Red Hat Customer Portal on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 are advised to apply
this update.

3. Solution:

The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
log in to download the update). Before applying the update, backup your
existing JBoss Enterprise Web Server installation (including all
applications and configuration files). After applying the update, if jsvc
is started, it must be restarted for this update to take effect.

4. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

Unified Operations Manager Remote Code Execution Vulnerabilities

Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20110914-cusm

Revision 1.0

For Public Release 2011 September 14 1600 UTC (GMT)

+---------------------------------------------------------------

Summary
=======

Two vulnerabilities exist in Cisco Unified Service Monitor and Cisco
Unified Operations Manager software that could allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on
affected servers.

Cisco has released free software updates that address these
vulnerabilities.

There are no workarounds available to mitigate these vulnerabilities.

This advisory is posted at:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20110914-cusm.shtml

Note: CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution is also affected by these
vulnerabilities. A separate advisory for CiscoWorks LAN Management
Solution is available at:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20110914-lms.shtml

Affected Products
=================

Vulnerable Products
+------------------

All versions of Cisco Unified Service Monitor and Cisco Unified
Operations Manager prior to 8.6 are affected.

To determine the Cisco Unified Service Monitor and Cisco Unified
Operations Manager software version navigate to Administration >
Software Center (Common Services) > Software Update. The Software
Update page displays the licensing and software version.

Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable
+--------------------------------

No other Cisco products other than the CiscoWorks LAN Management
Solution are currently known to be affected by these vulnerabilities.

Details
=======

Cisco Unified Service Monitor and Cisco Unified Operations Manager
are products from the Cisco Unified Communications Management Suite.
They provides a way to continuously monitor active calls supported by
the Cisco Unified Communications System.

Two vulnerabilities exist in Cisco Unified Service Monitor and Cisco
Unified Operations Manager software that could allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on
affected servers. These vulnerabilities can be triggered by sending a
series of crafted packets to the affected server over TCP port 9002.

Both of these vulnerabilities are documented in Cisco bug ID
CSCtn42961 ( registered customers only) and have been assigned CVE ID
CVE-2011-2738.

Vulnerability Scoring Details
+----------------------------

Cisco has provided scores for the vulnerabilities in this advisory
based on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). The CVSS
scoring in this Security Advisory is done in accordance with CVSS
version 2.0.

CVSS is a standards-based scoring method that conveys vulnerability
severity and helps determine urgency and priority of response.

Cisco has provided a base and temporal score. Customers can then
compute environmental scores to assist in determining the impact of
the vulnerability in individual networks.

Cisco has provided an FAQ to answer additional questions regarding
CVSS at:

http://www.cisco.com/web/about/security/intelligence/cvss-qandas.html

Cisco has also provided a CVSS calculator to help compute the
environmental impact for individual networks at:

http://intellishield.cisco.com/security/alertmanager/cvss

* CSCtn42961 - Cisco Unified Service Monitor Remote Code Execution

CVSS Base Score - 10
Access Vector - Network
Access Complexity - Low
Authentication - None
Confidentiality Impact - Complete
Integrity Impact - Complete
Availability Impact - Complete

CVSS Temporal Score - 8.3
Exploitability - Functional
Remediation Level - Official-Fix
Report Confidence - Confirmed


Impact
======

Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on
affected servers.

Software Versions and Fixes
===========================

When considering software upgrades, also consult
http://www.cisco.com/go/psirt and any subsequent advisories to determine
exposure and a complete upgrade solution.

In all cases, customers should exercise caution to be certain the
devices to be upgraded contain sufficient memory and that current
hardware and software configurations will continue to be supported
properly by the new release. If the information is not clear, contact
the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or your contracted
maintenance provider for assistance.

These vulnerabilities have been corrected in Cisco Unified Service
Monitor and Cisco Unified Operations Manager software version 8.6.

Cisco Unified Service Monitor and Cisco Unified Operations Manager
software can be downloaded from the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html?mdfid=280110371&i=rm

Workarounds
===========

There are no workarounds available to mitigate these vulnerabilities.

Mitigations that can be deployed on Cisco devices within the network
are available in the Cisco Applied Mitigation Bulletin companion
document for this advisory, which is available at the following link:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-amb-201100914-cusm-lms.shtml

Obtaining Fixed Software
========================

Cisco has released free software updates that address these
vulnerabilities. Prior to deploying software, customers should
consult their maintenance provider or check the software for feature
set compatibility and known issues specific to their environment.

Customers may only install and expect support for the feature sets
they have purchased. By installing, downloading, accessing or
otherwise using such software upgrades, customers agree to be bound
by the terms of Cisco's software license terms found at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/general/warranty/English/EU1KEN_.html
or as otherwise set forth at Cisco.com Downloads at:
http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/sw-usingswc.shtml

Do not contact psirt@cisco.com or security-alert@cisco.com for
software upgrades.

Customers with Service Contracts
+-------------------------------

Customers with contracts should obtain upgraded software through
their regular update channels. For most customers, this means that
upgrades should be obtained through the Software Center on Cisco's
worldwide website at http://www.cisco.com.

Customers using Third Party Support Organizations
+------------------------------------------------

Customers whose Cisco products are provided or maintained through
prior or existing agreements with third-party support organizations,
such as Cisco Partners, authorized resellers, or service providers
should contact that support organization for guidance and assistance
with the appropriate course of action in regards to this advisory.

The effectiveness of any workaround or fix is dependent on specific
customer situations, such as product mix, network topology, traffic
behavior, and organizational mission. Due to the variety of affected
products and releases, customers should consult with their service
provider or support organization to ensure any applied workaround or
fix is the most appropriate for use in the intended network before it
is deployed.

Customers without Service Contracts
+----------------------------------

Customers who purchase direct from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco
service contract, and customers who purchase through third-party
vendors but are unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through
their point of sale should acquire upgrades by contacting the Cisco
Technical Assistance Center (TAC). TAC contacts are as follows.

* +1 800 553 2447 (toll free from within North America)
* +1 408 526 7209 (toll call from anywhere in the world)
* e-mail: tac@cisco.com

Customers should have their product serial number available and be
prepared to give the URL of this notice as evidence of entitlement to
a free upgrade. Free upgrades for non-contract customers must be
requested through the TAC.
