The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has added 12 vulnerabilities to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog, to include Apple, Chrome, Android OS, D-Link (5), QNAP NAS, MikroTik, Oracle WebLogic, FortiOS and FortiADC flaws.
Trend Micro recently gathered and published new vulnerability scan data on Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as home routers and Wi-Fi devices that could be vulnerable to malware threats such as VPNFilter.
For the past several months, Cisco’s Talos security group has been researching a new advanced malware system dubbed “VPNFilter” that has compromised nearly 500,000 networking devices worldwide.
A highly sophisticated cyberespionage campaign dubbed Slingshot has been uncovered by Kaspersky security researchers. The campaign targets MikroTik routers to compromise them and use as a springboard to attack victims’ computers, as the company revealed in last week’s Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit (SAS).
