US-CERT is aware of a vulnerability affecting Microsoft Internet Explorer 8. This vulnerability is due to improper handling of circular memory references. Exploitation of this vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user or cause a denial-of-service condition.

At this time, the vendor has not released a fix or a workaround to address this vulnerability. Users and administrators are encouraged to consider implementing the mitigations provided in Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET)

. These mitigations will not rectify the vulnerability but will make exploitation of the vulnerability more difficult.

There is a lot of nasty malware out there and a new one popped up this week. This particular malware is a Trojan and the idea behind it is not new though the Trojan now has new and improved ways to spread. Unsuspecting users can be infected by the Trojan by clicking on infected links, particularly in forums.

This Trojan is a ransomware that encrypts your files (documents, image and shortcut files) and demands a password to decrypt the files. This password is available for the small price of €50. If the user attempts to enter a password, he will get five attempts before the files are locked and sealed, impossible to decrypt. The Trojan is called Trojan:W32/Ransomcrypt. Once the files have been encrypted, the EnCiPhErEd ending is added to their file name. A text message is displayed, offering the user to enter a password. If the password is wrong (which it of course is because the user has no idea what it could be), another text message appears that offers the release of the encrypted files after the ransom has been paid. F-PROT Antivirus users will be happy to know that a virus definition for this infection has already been released. F-PROT Antivirus users with updated programs should be safe from this malicious Trojan.

To avoid infection of this type, we encourage users to avoid clicking on suspicious links and never to enter their credit card number or transfer money after a mysterious pop-up message from a product or service that you did not request is displayed on their computer. Installing and using a good antivirus is also essential. Also, and this can not be said too many times, it is absolutely vital to have a back up of all files, photos and documents. Regularly take a back up of all your computer data and store it in a safe place.

Microsoft Security Advisory (2719662)

Vulnerabilities in Gadgets Could Allow Remote Code Execution

Published: Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Version: 1.0


General Information

Executive Summary

Microsoft is announcing the availability of an automated Microsoft Fix it solution that disables the Windows Sidebar and Gadgets on supported editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. Disabling the Windows Sidebar and Gadgets can help protect customers from vulnerabilities that involve the execution of arbitrary code by the Windows Sidebar when running insecure Gadgets. In addition, Gadgets installed from untrusted sources can harm your computer and can access your computer's files, show you objectionable content, or change their behavior at any time.

An attacker who successfully exploited a Gadget vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the context of the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take complete control of the affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

Applying the automated Microsoft Fix It solution described in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2719662 disables the Windows Sidebar experience and all Gadget functionality.
