Local users of F-Secure Internet Security 2015 could elevate their privileges to local admin/system/kernel.
As most of us know, the Earth’s CO2 levels keep rising, which directly contributes to the melting of our pale blue dot’s icecaps. This is slowly but surely making it harder for our beloved polar bears to keep on living. So, it’s time for us information security professionals to help do our part. As we all know, every packet traveling over the Internet is processed by power hungry CPUs. By simply sending fewer packets, we can consume less electricity while still get our banner grabbing, and…
CyberLock CyberKey-based access control solutions can be easily cloned, and new keys can be created from lost cylinders and keys regardless of the permissions granted to the key.

The security and privacy of Petcube users could be compromised through unauthorized access.
Ilja van Sprundel, an IOActive security researcher, discovered several issues in the way the libXfont library handles the responses it receives from XFS servers. Mr. van Sprundel has worked with X.Org’s security team to analyze, confirm, and fix these issues. Most of these issues stem from libXfont trusting the font server to send valid protocol data and not verifying that the values will not overflow or cause other damage. This code is commonly called from the X server when an X Font Server is active in the font path, so…
Attackers can steal Facebook access tokens to impersonate Facebook users and perform malicious actions that include, but are not limited to, posting content on behalf of users and accessing friend lists.
A non-privileged use could cause a local Denial-of-Service (DoS) condition by triggering a kernel panic through a malformed ELF executable.
The WeMo devices connect to the Internet using the STUN/TURN protocol. This gives users remote control of the devices and allows them to perform firmware updates from anywhere in the world. A generated GUID is the primary source of access control. WeMo also uses a GPG-based, encrypted firmware distribution scheme to maintain device integrity during updates. Unfortunately, attackers can easily bypass most of these features due to the way they are currently implemented in the WeMo product line. The command for performing firmware updates is initiated over the Internet from…
While performing a routine world-writable file scan, one of IOActive’s consultants discovered that the Steam Client for Mac OS X creates world-writable shell scripts when installing games.
