MS Word Zero-Day Attack – Unpatched For Years

0 Day Attacks, Cyber News, Knowledge Base
Researchers at McAfee and FireEye have disclosed another case of email-based hacking methods which can be used to compromise a fully updated and patched Windows operating system, even Windows 10.  The attack vector lies in the form of an unpatched zero-day bug present in all the running versions of Microsoft Office. The root cause lies in an important Office feature known as Object Linking and Embedding (OLE). It allows applications to embed and link to documents and objects. According to the researchers, a victim opening a suspicious Word file – embedded with an OLE2link object – in an email would trigger winword.exe to initiate an HTTP request to the attacker’s remote server. This results in the download of a malicious .hta file (HTML Application executable) on the victim’s

Scary Phishing Attack – Almost Impossible To Detect

Punycode is a method of depicting Unicode using the limited character subset of ASCII which is used for internet host names. It makes it possible to register domain names with foreign characters. For example, the domain name “xn--s7y.co” is same as “短.co”. Using the same, a security researcher has shown the proof-of-concept of a scary attack. While the whole concept of the attack is very old, it has recently surfaced to the current versions of browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. These browsers show unicode characters in domain names as normal characters, which makes it impossible to notice the notorious domains. Due to this, it’s possible to register domains like “xn--pple-43d.com”, which is equivalent to “аpple.com,” the Chinese security researcher Xudong Zh
How To Remotely Access Your Computer Using Chrome Remote Desktop

How To Remotely Access Your Computer Using Chrome Remote Desktop

Networking, Useful Applications
In this tutorial, I'll walk you through how Chrome Remote desktop works, and how you can use it to remotely access your PC or Mac no matter where you are. A Word on Security Making your computer accessible remotely might sounds like a security risk, but it's actually quite safe. Chrome Remote Desktop is protected by a PIN when used among your own computers and is dependent on an Access Code when opening up your computer to another user. Only you know your PIN, and the Access Code expires at the end of the Remote Assistance session. An unused code will expire after a few minutes if it’s not used, providing further protection, so you can feel quite safe using Chrome Remote Desktop to remotely access your computer. Plus, the entire remote session is AES encrypted over a secure SSL connectio
