February Patch Tuesday Is a Bouquet of Fixes for Privilege Escalation Vulnerabilities

Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday for February has a bevy of fixes addressing 50 security issues in Windows, Office (including Office Services and Web Apps), SharePoint, Internet Explorer, Edge, and ChakraCore JavaScript engine, as well as additional patches for the notorious Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Of these, 14 were rated critical. Eight of these security flaws were disclosed through Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative.

Majority of the vulnerabilities are related to elevation of privileges. When exploited successfully, these can allow hackers to carry out normally restricted and system-level functions or hijack the affected systems. There are also 11 security issues affecting the Windows kernel that can lead to local privilege escalation and information disclosure when exploited.

Deciphering Confucius’ Cyberespionage Operations

In today’s online chat and dating scene, romance scams are not uncommon, what with catfishers and West African cybercriminals potently toying with their victims’ emotions to cash in on their bank accounts. It’s quite odd (and probably underreported), however, to see it used as a vector for cyberespionage.

We stumbled upon the Confucius hacking group while delving into Patchwork’s cyberespionage operations, and found a number of similarities. Code in their custom malware bore similarities, for instance. And like Patchwork, Confucius targeted a particular set of individuals in South Asian countries, such as military personnel and businessmen, among others.
