*** IBM HTTP Server GSKit SSLv2 Session Resuming Denial of Service Vulnerability ***
---------------------------------------------
A vulnerability has been reported in IBM HTTP Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
---------------------------------------------
https://secunia.com/advisories/56058




*** Tor use best practices ***
---------------------------------------------
To date the NSA's and FBI's primary attacks on Tor users have been MITM attacks (NSA) and hidden service web server compromises (FBI) which either sent tracking data to the Tor user's computer, compromised it, or both. Thus you need a reasonably secure system from which you can use Tor and reduce your risk of being tracked or compromised.

*** WordPress S3 Video Plugin "base" Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability ***
---------------------------------------------
Input passed to the "base" GET parameter in wp-content/plugins/s3-video/views/video-management/preview_video.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

*** IrfanView GIF buffer overflow ***
---------------------------------------------
IrfanView is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking when processing the LZW code stream within GIF files. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted GIF file containing an overly long LZW code stream, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.

*** cURL Certificate Validation Flaw Lets Remote Users Spoof SSL Servers ***
---------------------------------------------
A vulnerability was reported in cURL. A remote user that can conduct a man-in-the-middle attack can spoof SSL servers.
The software does not properly verify the certificate CN or SAN name field in certain cases. A remote user that can conduct a man-in-the-middle attack can spoof SSL servers.
Systems that use GnuTLS as the TLS backend are affected.
Systems with digital signature verification (CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER) disabled are affected.

*** OpenJPEG Heap Overflows Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code ***
---------------------------------------------
Several vulnerabilities were reported in OpenJPEG. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.
A remote user can create a specially crafted image file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a heap overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2013-6045, CVE-2013-6054]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
A remote user can create a specially crafted image file that, when loaded by the target user, will cause the application that uses openJPEG to crash [CVE-2013-1447, CVE-2013-6052].

*** Blog: Malware in metadata ***
---------------------------------------------
One of the systems I have been running collects all our web malware detections for .ES domains. I usually check it out every morning, just in case I see something especially interesting or relevant. And when I find something, I like to create some statistics to have a global overview.There are some things that I find every time I check my stats, like URLs that have been infected for more than 200 days, even being notified. That speaks of the lack of security awareness on some companies, and how

*** Acoustic Cryptanalysis ***
---------------------------------------------
This is neat: Here, we describe a new acoustic cryptanalysis key extraction attack, applicable to GnuPGs current implementation of RSA. The attack can extract full 4096-bit RSA decryption keys from laptop computers (of various models), within an hour, using the sound generated by the computer during the decryption of some chosen ciphertexts. We experimentally demonstrate that such attacks can be...

*** A peek inside the booming underground market for stealth Bitcoin/Litecoin mining tools ***
---------------------------------------------
The over-hyped market valuation of the buzzing P2P E-currency, Bitcoin, quickly gained the attention of cybercriminals internationally who promptly adapted to its sky rocketing valuation by releasing commercially available stealth Bitcoin miners, Bitcoin wallet stealing malware, as well as actually starting to offer the source code for their releases in an attempt to monetize their know-how and expertise in this area. Throughout 2013, we profiled several subscription based stealth Bitcoin
