HiScout GRC Suite versions prior to 3.1.5 suffer from a file upload vulnerability. An authenticated attacker with the permission to edit or add a “WebSiteElement” to the “content” pages is able to upload any file with any file extension to the data directory of the application. This directory is in the web root and the uploaded file is executed on the server if “.aspx” is chosen as the file extension and if the file contains aspx source code. Any commands can be executed with the permissions of the web server user on the server by exploiting this vulnerability.
Sysdig falco is a behavioral activity monitoring agent that is open source and comes with native support for containers. Falco lets you define highly granular rules to check for activities involving file and network activity, process execution, IPC, and much more, using a flexible syntax. Falco will notify you when these rules are violated. You can think about falco as a mix between snort, ossec and strace.
Seagate Personal Cloud is a consumer-grade Network-Attached Storage device (NAS). It was found that the web application used to manage the NAS is affected by various unauthenticated information disclosure vulnerabilities. The device is configured to trust any CORS origin, and is accessible via the personalcloud.local domain name. Due to this it is possible for any website to gain access to this information. While this information doesn’t allow an attacker to compromise the NAS, the information can be used to stage more targeted attacks. This issue was tested on a Seagate Personal Cloud model SRN21C running firmware versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. The software is licensed from LACIE, it is very likely that other devices/models are also affected.
There is a variety of RPC communication channels between the Chrome OS host system and the crosvm guest. This bug report focuses on communication on TCP port 8889, which is used by the “garcon” service. garcon uses gRPC, which is an RPC protocol that sends protobufs over plaintext HTTP/2. (Other system components communicate with the VM over gRPC-over-vsock, but garcon uses gRPC-over-TCP.) For some command types, the TCP connection is initiated by the host; for others, it is initiated by the guest. Both guest and host are listening on [::]:8889; however, the iptables rules of the host prevent an outside host from simply connecting to those sockets. However, apps running on the host are not affected by such restrictions.
