    Unbeknownst to many, last month Microsoft patched one of the most severe bugs ever reported to the company, an issue that could be abused to easily take over Windows Servers running as domain controllers in enterprise networks.


    The bug was patched in the August 2020 Patch Tuesday under the identifier of CVE-2020-1472. It was described as an elevation of privilege in Netlogon, the protocol that authenticates users against domain controllers.

    The vulnerability received the maximum severity rating of 10, but details were never made public, meaning users and IT administrators never knew how dangerous the issue really was.

    If you are dumb enough to be using Anvisoft as your antivirus, ditch it immediately.

    If you use Firefox for Android, update it pronto.

    Mozilla has patched a security flaw that could allow cybercriminals to hijack all vulnerable Firefox for Android browsers running on devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The vulnerability could be abused to force users to visit websites housing malicious content, which could then be used to execute phishing attacks or to download malware to their devices.

    The vulnerability was discovered by Australian security researcher Chris Moberly, who said, “The victim simply has to have the Firefox application running on their phone. They do not need to access any malicious websites or click any malicious links. No attacker-in-the-middle or malicious app installation is required.” Moberly worked with Mozilla to fix the vulnerability with the updated Firefox version.
