SysJoker masquerades as a system update.
Operators of a new cross-platform backdoor called SysJoker aimed on computers running Windows, Linux and macOS operating systems as part of an ongoing spy campaign.
“SysJoker masquerades as a system update and generates its C&C by decoding a string extracted from a text file in Google Drive,” researchers from Intezer noted.
Experts discovered evidence of the presence of malware in December 2021 during an active attack on a Linux-based web server owned by an unnamed educational institution.
Malicious software written in the C++ programming language is delivered via a loader file from a remote server. The malware is designed to collect information about the compromised system, such as the MAC address, username, physical media serial number, and IP address. The collected data is encoded and transmitted back to the server.
Connections to a maliciously controlled server are established by extracting a domain URL from an embedded link in a text file (“domain.txt”) in Google Drive. This allows the server to send instructions to the computer to run arbitrary commands and executable files.
Possibly hundreds of millions of smartphones are at risk. A vulnerability has been discovered that manufacturers are in no hurry to fix
Google, as part of its Project Zero project, has published information about a new vulnerability CVE-2022-33917 that affects millions of smartphones.
The fact is that we are talking about a vulnerability in Mali GPUs, which are used in a huge number of single-chip systems. Google does not specify, but the Arm website has information that the vulnerability affects solutions based on the Valhall architecture. And this means that we are talking about a huge number of graphics cores that have been and are being used in SoCs in recent years, including the latest Mali-Gx10. That is, we are not talking about millions of vulnerable smartphones, but rather hundreds of millions of devices based on SoC MediaTek, Exynos and Tensor.
Arm itself patched the vulnerability some time ago, but the problem is that many vendors still haven’t implemented those patches. This applies to many devices from Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo and even Google itself.
If exploited, the vulnerability is intended to allow an attacker to read and write physical pages after they are returned to the system, potentially gaining wide access to user data.
Elon Musk invited a famous hacker of iPhone and PlayStation consoles to Twitter
Elon Musk hired a hacker who created the world’s first iPhone jailbreak in 2007 and bypassed Sony consoles in 2010. We are talking about George Hotz (George Hotz), known under the nickname Geohot. He also founded the startup Comma.ai, where an autopilot system for cars is being developed.
In 2015, Hotz began building his own autopilot and offered Musk a license. Instead, the businessman invited a specialist to Tesla, but Hotz refused.
A November 16 Hotz wrote on Twitter, which supports Musk’s decisions about the “hardcore mode of operation.” He also stated that he was ready for an internship at Twitter with a minimum pay that is equal to the cost of living in San Francisco. Musk answered and invited the developer to Twitter.
First, the specialist will improve the advanced search in the social network so that users no longer set filters manually.
Earlier it was reported that Musk took up the “fire servers.”
Hackers hacked one of Nvidia’s Twitter accounts to “advertise” Dogecoin
The official Nvidia Taiwan Twitter account has been hacked.
This account has been inactive since 2019, but today unexpectedly posted posts related to the Dogecoin cryptocurrency. Given the recent purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk and his love for this cryptocurrency, the situation looks quite funny.
Be that as it may, the attackers published a record about a certain Dogeathon 2022 event and added a link to the record. Of course, the link was used for phishing.
The account is currently suspended. Nvidia itself has not yet commented on the situation.
