Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2017-05-09 | Party like it’s patch Tuesday, Yahoo’s $2M bounties, and Mudge is on the move
Tuesday, May 9
Live it up. Patch it up.
- MSFT patched the critical RCE in Windows Malware Scanner. It’s never good when the cop becomes the criminal (Microsoft's own antivirus software made Windows 7, 8.1, RT and 10 computers more vulnerable). Click that magical “Check Update” button now. Read more from Hacker News and then there’s also this.
HTTP 401 response injection on "amp.twimg.com/amplify-web-player/prod/source.html" through "image_src" parameter [18 upvotes] - $560 bounty for this report to Twitter by @zlz. The image_src parameter accepting images from any arbitrary host, enabling attackers to supply image destinations that respond with a "HTTP 401 Unauthorized" response.
Второй способ обхода 2FA [5 upvotes] - $1,050 bounty for this report to VK.com by @povargek. Cool to see reports in other languages, in this case, Russian! Also, reminder any company can disclose reports with limited and/or redacted information. Disclosure FTW!
