A Brand New Virus That Incorporates Mining, Hacking and Backdoor Modules

Dubbed as CrazyCoin, a brand new virus has been recently discovered by researchers, which spreads through the NSA leaked EternalBlue exploit kit. The researchers came across this new computer virus as they found that it incorporates numerous capabilities in its arsenal. 

The virus allegedly incorporates mining, hacking, and 'backdoor' modules. After it taints a user's machine, it downloads mining and data-stealing modules. Later it plants the Double Pulsar backdoor program so that every one of these modules cooperates with one another and plays out their own activities. 

As indicated by researchers from 360 Baize Labs who found the infection, “The powershell script is responsible for downloading various modules to the victim’s machine for execution.” They state that the mining module incorporated in the virus is utilized to mine Monero and HNS coins. 

Furthermore, among the data stolen by the virus' stealing module are the victim's sensitive documents, like the ID cards, passwords, bitcoin wallets and so on. 

This stolen information is later sent back to a server controlled and handled by the attackers. Exhorting the users the researchers warn them about a few certain things as CrazyCoin 'leverages' the EternalBlue endeavor to proliferate across systems. This exploit kit is known for abusing a vulnerability in SMBv1, it is important to further update security patches against it. 

The vulnerability CVE-2017-0144 exists on the grounds that the SMB version 1 server in different variants of Microsoft Windows mishandles exceptionally created packets from remote attackers, permitting them to execute arbitrary code on the targeted computer. 

The CrazyCoin virus is said to listen and receive commands on port 3611.

One Plus found leaking user data

Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus has been reportedly leaking data of OnePlus phone users for years. According to a report by 9to5 Google, OnePlus has been ‘unknowingly’ leaking crucial personal information of its users publicly for quite a considerable amount of time and it is only when the major security flaw was pointed out to the company recently that it has started to investigate. Here is everything you must know about this breach in privacy.
According to the report, OnePlus has been leaking names and email addresses of hundreds of its users, through the ‘Shot on OnePlus’ application that allegedly carries a security flaw. The app offers you a place to upload photos taken by your OnePlus device to be featured as wallpapers by OnePlus users globally.
As the name suggests, ‘Shot on OnePlus’ allows users to upload their photos from the phone or from a website (for which they need to be logged in to the OnePlus account) and set user-submitted photos as their wallpaper. Users can also adjust their profile, including their name, country, and email address from the app and the website. OnePlus chooses one photo every day to feature in the app and on the website. According to 9to5Google, the API OnePlus used to make a link between their server and the app was “fairly easy to access” despite carrying private information about users. It said anyone with an access token could “do most actions” with the API. An API, or Application Programming Interface, is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other.

9to5Google said it discovered the “somewhat major” vulnerability in the API OnePlus uses for the app a couple of months ago, and that the company had already fixed it. It said it was unclear for how long users’ data had been leaking in this way, but believed it had been happening since the launch of the ‘Shot on OnePlus’ app many years ago.

The leak was reported taking place because of a flaw which was communicated to the company in early May but hasn’t been completely patched despite a fix being rolled out.

Failure To Restrict Url Vulnerability in Adobe exposes Internal data

Information Security Researchers Parveen Yadav and Mayank Bhatodra have identified a critical security flaw in Adobe website that exposes the sensitive internal data of Adobe Systems Inc.

Adobe uses an application called P4web which provides convenient access to versioned files through popular web browsers. Files can be viewed as icons or thumbnails and all standard operations can be performed in the browser.

Unfortunately,  the Adobe fails to restrict the Perforce P4web web client being accessed by users , it results in exposing the internal data.

For a security reasons, we are not providing the vulnerable link here.  The URL allows us to read the internal data including email IDs of Employees, Full Name. It also exposes the Internal system directory and computer names, Source codes.

"An application only protects sensitive functionality by preventing the display of links or URLs to unauthorized users. Attackers can use this weakness to access and perform unauthorized operations by accessing those URLs directly." Researcher said.

The researcher notified Adobe before few months but they failed to respond to them.  We have also notified Adobe about the vulnerability but there is no response from their side.
