*** Malicious Web-based Java applet generating tool spotted in the wild ***
---------------------------------------------
Despite the prevalence of Web based client-side exploitation tools as the cybercrime ecosystem's primary infection vector, in a series of blog posts, we've been emphasizing on the emergence of managed/hosted/DIY malicious Java applet generating tools/platforms, highlighting the existence of a growing market segment relying on 'visual social engineering' vectors for the purpose of tricking end users into executing malicious/rogue/fake Java applets, ultimately joining a

*** Security Advisory-Heap Overflow Vulnerability in Huawei eSap Platform ***
---------------------------------------------
Huawei eSap software platform has four heap overflow vulnerabilities. Huawei products that have used this platform are affected. When receiving some special malformed packets, such devices access heap memory that is beyond the valid range and cause unexpected restart of the devices. If an attacker keeps sending such malformed packets, the devices will repeatedly restart, causing a denial of service (DoS) attack (Vulnerability ID: HWPSIRT-2014-0111).
Huawei has provided fixed versions.

*** Hacking the Java Debug Wire Protocol - or - 'How I met your Java debugger' ***
---------------------------------------------
In this post, I will explain the Java Debug Wire Protocol (JDWP) and why it is interesting from a pentester's point of view. I will cover some JDWP internals and how to use them to perform code execution, resulting in a reliable and universal exploitation script. ... As a matter of fact, JDWP is used quite a lot in the Java application world. Pentesters might, however, not see it that often when performing remote assessments as firewalls would (and should) mostly block the port it is

*** SLocker Android Ransomware Communicates Via Tor And SMS ***
---------------------------------------------
A little over two weeks ago, we found a new family of Android ransomware: SLocker.We have no evidence that SLocker is related to Koler, the most recently discovered Android ransomware. It does however carry through on the threat Koler made. Unlike Koler - which pretended to, but didnt actually encrypt files - SLocker will actually scan the devices SD card for specific file types: When the SLocker app is launched, it encrypts these files and then displays a ransom message:The message

*** Microsoft dichtet OneDrive-Links ab ***
---------------------------------------------
In der Dokument-Freigabe von Microsofts Cloud-Speicher klaffte ein Loch, das es Angreifern erlaubt hätte, unbefugten Zugriff auf Dokumente zu erhalten. Microsoft hat die Lücke nun geschlossen, altere Freigabe-URLs könnten aber noch verwundbar sein.

*** Researchers Outline Spammers Business Ecosystem ***
---------------------------------------------
An anonymous reader writes A team of researchers at the UC Santa Barbara and RWTH Aachen presented new findings on the relationship of spam actors [abstract; full paper here] at the ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security. This presents the first end-to-end analysis of the spam delivery ecosystem including: harvesters crawl the web and compile email lists, botmasters infect and operate botnets, and spammers rent botnets and buy email lists to run spam campaigns.
