July 21, Help Net Security – (International) Vulnerabilities affecting SAP HANA and SAP Trex put 10,000 customers at risk. Onapsis released security advisories reporting on vulnerabilities in SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance (HANA) and SAP Trex including a critical risk brute force attack affecting SAP HANA that could allow an attacker to gain unrestricted access to business information, and a critical risk remote command execution flaw affecting SAP Trex that could allow an unauthenticated attacker to modify arbitrary database information, among other vulnerabilities. Researchers from Onapsis reported the flaws pose a risk to over 10,000 SAP customers running different versions of SAP HANA. Source

July 21, Help Net Security – (International) Cisco plugs critical flaw in data center operations management solution. Cisco patched a critical vulnerability affecting its Unified Computing System (UCS) Performance Manager software’s Web framework after a researcher from the Adidas Group discovered that an attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending crafted Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTP) GET requests to an affected system, allowing the attacker to execute arbitrary commands with root user privileges.

July 21, SecurityWeek – (International) Chrome 52 patches 48 vulnerabilities. Google released Chrome 52 patching 48 security flaws including 11 high risk flaws and 6 medium severity flaws after external researchers found a high risk sandbox escape flaw in Pepper Plugin application programming interface (PPAPI), a high risk uniform resource locator (URL) spoofing on iOS, a use-after-free in Extensions, and a heap-buffer-overflow issue affecting sfntly, among other vulnerabilities.

July 20, Softpedia – (International) Backdoor account found in Dell network security products. Researchers from Digital Defense, Inc., (DDI) released patches addressing six serious security flaws affecting the Dell SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS) after discovering the equipment had a hidden account that could be exploited to add non-administrative users via the command-line interface (CLI) Client, thereby elevating an attacker’s privilege and allowing the malicious actor full control of the GMS interface and all attached SonicWALL appliances. DDI researchers also discovered two unauthenticated root command injections that lead to remote code execution (RCE) with root privileges on Dell equipment, among other vulnerabilities. Source

July 20, SecurityWeek – (International) CrypMIC ransomware emerges as CryptXXX copycat. Trend Micro security researchers discovered a ransomware dubbed CrypMIC was mimicking the CryptXXX ransomware family, in that it exploits the Neurtino exploit kit (EK) to distribute the malware, utilizes the same ransom note and payment site, and employs a custom protocol via transmission control protocol (TCP) Port 443 to communicate with its command and control (C&C) servers, among other similarities. Researchers reported that the source code and capabilities of the two families are different after finding the CrypMIC ransomware cannot harvest credentials and related information from the affected device, as it does not download and execute an information-stealing module on its process memory.
