Today has not been a fun day for people using 3CX. Basically, anyone who has been using the desktop client on Windows (and potentially Mac) has has their machine hacked. Not JUST hacked, but quite probably all your stored login credentials have been stolen. This is about as bad as it gets.

Basically, if you have 3CX installed on your PC, consider EVERY PASSWORD and EVERY SINGLE THING you're logged into as compromised.

CrowdStrike and SentinelOne are reporting that a version of the 3CX softphone app has been bundled with malware in a supply chain attack, similar to what happened with Solarwinds. CrowdStrike intelligence has attributed this activity to a North Korean APT group they track as LABYRINTH CHOLLIMA. The response from 3CX is arrogant as hell!

#InfoSec #3CX #SupplyChainAttack #CrowdStrike #SentinelOne #NorthKorea #DPRK #APT #LABYRINTHCHOLLIMA

A response from JohnS_3CX on the 3CX support forum that reads

While that would sound ideal, there's hundreds if not thousands of AV solutions out there and we can't always reach out to them whenever an event occurs. We use the Electron framework for our app, perhaps they are blocking some if its functionality?

As you probably understand, we have no control over their software and the decisions it makes so it's not exactly our place to comment on it. I think in this case at least, it makes more sense if the SentinelOne customers contact their security software provider and see why this happens. Feel free to post your findings here if you get a reply.

Damn #wellsfargo The process I just went through to get some information from 2017 and 2019 that I need was super bonkers. I can't get that info in the "secure" portal, so I had to go on the phone to request it. No problem, was simpler to find and the person was great.

What was not great is that instead of sticking it in the secure portal for me, or emailing it to the email address I have used for 14 years with you all, I was able to give an international address to the person and they will mail it to me. This was after seeing if a fax was ok

What year is it? My advice is this:

Allow your people to make those documents securely available in your portal.
Allow your people to email a link, and separately a code, to access those documents through a secure service.
Allow those docs to be encrypted in a zip and sent.

It's 2023, I should not have to wait for a physical version of old documents, which are already in a digital format, just because you can't work out how to securely provide digital copies of things to people.

UK Salary nonsense is raising its head again. The UK Treasury is trying to find a Head of Cyber Security for UK£55k. That's.... well... it's.....

I have no words.

Cost of living is definitely a thing, which seems to confuse a lot of US people when they see UK salaries. In *very general* terms, getting £100k is similar to getting US$200k.

But even so, this is terrible.

Yes, I am simplifying but, *most* people in the UK on £100k a year will have a lifestyle similar to, if not better than, most people in the US living on US$200k a year.

And, yes, you will absolutely find a lot of exceptions to that. Well done.

But this is a different problem. It is a senior role, whatever LinkedIn says. It needs someone to be in the most expensive city in the country (at least some of the time) and it needs them to have the knowledge & experience to defend a Critical National Infrastructure target.

It is a Civil Service role, so the current crazy thinking about "overpaid civil servants" and our weird government obsession with cutting all public-paid salaries except their own has an impact.

But this is a significant problem. It really is.

If they have any competent staff left, this needs to be on the Risk Register in BIG letters as a significant, but complex, risk.

For a start, hiring. Who can you hire? Anyone with the skills & knowledge for this role can get 2-3x as much with almost no effort.

I mean, I got more than this for a mid-senior government role with no civilian-world experience 14 years ago.

Whoever they hire for this role is LIKELY to have bluffed something. Or they are going to bounce & just want it for a year or two to improve their CV.

That's a bit of a red flag though, as it means they don't have a strong enough CV to get a similar role... So they either messed up massively somewhere or don't have the knowledge/experience to do the job.

Back to being a bluffer.

The second risk is more financial. If Criminal Gang X want to get someone "inside" the treasury, this makes it pretty obvious that they are dirt cheap.

I am not saying people do not have morals, but if you are senior career, flat sharing with students and eating pot noodles each day and walking to work because your salary won't cover your rent *&* food *&* travel, then a criminal who offers you £100k to look the other way, is a very, very different proposition.

Why spend money buying possibly valid creds from the DarkWeb when you can just offer the Head of Security a decent meal...

I really do wish the best to whoever gets this job but the main risk (IMHO) is that if they won't pay a decent salary for the HEAD, then your staff are underpaid, undertrained, lacking in skill or experience and your security budget will be pocket money. #infosec #cybersecurity #treasury #security

All geeks who cherish or at least somewhat care about humanity and the supposely inalienable rights we humans deserve ought to read his story...

「For 12 years, Program Think, an anonymous Chinese blogger, mounted an open challenge to China’s tightening authoritarian grip and expanding surveillance state.

The freewheeling blog offered a mixture of technical cybersecurity advice and scathing political commentary – including tips on how to safely circumvent China’s Great Firewall of internet censorship, develop critical thinking and resist the increasingly totalitarian rule of the Chinese Communist Party.

Then, in May 2021, Program Think suddenly went silent. 」

「“Since June 2009, (Ruan) has used his computer to write more than a hundred seditious articles that spread rumors and slander, attack and smear the country’s current political system, incite subversion of state power, and intent to overthrow the socialist system,” the court verdict said.

It added that the articles, published on overseas platforms, attracted “a large number of internet users to read, comment and share, causing pernicious consequences.” 」

「Ruan never cared much about money or material comfort. Instead, he longed for what he called the “open source spirit” – freedom, openness, sharing and cooperation, Bei said.

“He thinks one must pursue spiritual values in life. For him, it is technology – that’s what he finds valuable. But only recently did I discover that his (quest) for freedom had also morphed into a (longing for) political freedom,” she said. 」

Once you find something weird on one endpoint, or from one source, widen your lens to see how common it is across your entire environment. What may seem odd when zoomed in may become part of your baseline with wider perspective.

Or it doesn't, in which case you have further evidence that you found a live one.

A MacBook sitting on a wooden table with an iPhone face down and dimly lit.

Big #Tech and #InfoSec has a hiring disorder. They over hire without constraint when the market says “good” and the moment there is any blip they purge. This is both a real problem and more than an analogy to a serious medical issue.

This has been a worsening trend over the last decade and it’s really become noticed. Seeing the impact of the humans who are affected by this behavior is heartbreaking. And it’s not the execs who do this that are impacted, they are incented to do this, their rewards are based on market performance, which is the driver of this behavior.

So we have leaders who are rewarded for creating and continuing this model. People are our greatest asset my ass. You’ve lost the right to say that.

There will be an upswing. Again. That’s what markets do. The question will be whether people remember this and choose not to participate. There is now a much bigger set of opportunities outside these Big Tech orgs that are both as rewarding (in money and satisfaction) and way more fun without all the baggage and tax you pay to be in those environments.

To all those impacted, I say again, you did nothing wrong, it’s not you, there’s a whole world out here that is amazing, and what you have learned working in those places is valuable, really valuable. Just navigating the complexities, rallying people behind an idea, Influencing without control … all incredibly impactful skills. Not to mention the technology knowledge you have.

There are many people on LI and other places offering to chat and help, take a breath, and then use your time to chat to them, you will gain both some confidence and some nuggets of advice that will get you going again.

I will always have time on #TheIntersection for people to book a slot to talk. I will make the time.

This research & PoC attack on the 802.11 WiFi stack is neat, with plausible pathways for hijacking or injection at the transport layer. It cunningly leverages the unmanaged sec state of queued power saving frames:

"the attacker can change the security context of the [power saving] frames by sending authentication and association frames to the access point, thus forcing it to transmit the frames in plaintext form or encrypt them with an attacker-provided key." #infosec

I don't know if this is a controversial opinion, but I will state it anyway:

I believe that the CVE system has some serious deficiencies. In particular, using the same system for both user-facing products and third-party libraries is problematic to the point of actually reducing overall security in the industry.

Let me give an example: Let's say you run a self-hosted piece of server-software written in Java. Let's call the product "Foo". You use something like Sonatype to monitor vulnerabilities in the software you use.

You happily run Foo for a few months and CVE-2023-0001 is reported on product Foo with a CVSS score of 9.9. In this case the system works great because you can now patch Foo as soon as possible, and in the meantime you can look at the remediation procedure documented in the CVE report to determine how much of a hurry you are in.

But that's unfortunately not what happens. What you are actually going to see is hundreds of vulnerabilities of varying severity reported not just on Foo as a product, but on every single third-party library that the product Foo happens to use.

Let's say that Foo generates SVG from a template and then uses a library to convert said SVG into images before sending them to the client (never mind that seems like a stupid solution, just go with it). And then a CVSS 10.0 appears because there is an RCE when passing specially crafted SVG data to the library.

Now you have Sonatype reporting that you have a severity 10 issue with the workaround static "upgrade this library". This information would be useful for the developer of Foo, but not for the user.

In fact, the developer may already have investigated this and downgraded the score since the library is never used to process untrusted input.

What this means is that as a user of some piece of software you will feel a lot of pressure internally to pursue CVE reports that are in fact not relevant, but since it shows up in your scan you have an obligation to do this, and check with the vendor to ask about the root cause of these results. This takes time and energy away from your real job: To keep your infrastructure secure.

I lay the blame for this happening squarely on the bad organisation of the CVE database, and I really wish there was a better way. Unfortunately right now it's all we have.

#cve #infosec #cvss really needs the :lolsob: emoji

it's the single best symbol characterizing our industry

So here's a Hacking / Windows Systems Admin question:

From the network, I can log in to this weird host via SMB with any username and any password (e.g.: NotaRealUser / NotaRealPass) and get ADMIN level rights.

Kinda... if I log in with the local Administrator, I have to put the correct password that is stored in the SAM. But anything else, it accepts it as a full admin.

Does anyone know why a Windows host (Server 2008 in this instance) would do that? Like, what configuration would allow a person to have full read/write admin level access to a box with any username and password?

(To be clear... I don't THINK it's a honeypot? Even if it is, how would you configure / misconfigure a windows host to allow this kind of behavior?)

Okay, now I'm curious... What is the worst resume you have ever come across?

I published it! A detailed walkthrough of the updated OWASP Top 10 room where I explain how to solve each challenge as well as explain each vulnerability and how to prevent them in your next web application. Hope you enjoy this lengthy read 🙃

Okay, so honest question for people that are a part of the tech hiring process. How many pages is the norm for an experienced InfoSec resume? I have a lot of knowledge and experience that I have to trim out to keep it 2 pages and it pains me to do so.

I've worked as Tech Support, IT Repair, Customer Support, Web Dev (fullstack), DB Admin, Sys Ops, Sec Ops, Net Admin, App Sec, IT Architecture, IT Auditing, GRC, and Enterprise Sec in several different industries to name a few.

I'm sure I am getting auto filtered out of some of these job applications because of lack of keyword hits. Is a 3 page resume really too much, or have I been feed some bad resume advice over the years? :boost_ok:

"Inventarisatie van DMARC mailbeveiliging bij Mastodon-servers teleurstellend" -- Gebruikers zouden de beveiliging mee moeten nemen bij hun keuze voor een Mastodon-server

"Een 'phishing mail'-campagne naar de gebruikers van was voor netwerkbeveiligingsspecialist Sean Whalen aanleiding om de domeinnamen van de top-1000 Mastodon-servers te controleren op het gebruik van de DMARC-beveiliging voor e-mail."

One of the most absurd surveillance schemes I've seen for a while. Germany is using an AI to scan thousands of web pages, social posts, and messaging apps to detect porn.

They're then reporting people to the police for not having age verification measures in place. (Even where it is literally impossible to do so). More than 100 people in recent months have been reported to the police in Berlin.

I spoke with some of those facing criminal prosecutions, fines, and potential jail sentences for posting porn to Twitter.
