NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES
SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Oracle vulnerability opens users to remote code execution attacks
Description: Oracle released an out-of-band pouch for WebLogic servers that could allow an attacker to carry out remote code execution attacks. Security researchers discovered the bug being exploited earlier this month by attackers in the wild. Oracle assigned the bug CVE-2019-2725 and gave it a CVSS score of 9.8/10, highlighting how serious the issue is. WebLogix server owners are urged to update as soon as possible.

Title: JasperLoader targets Europe with Gootkit banking trojan
Description: A loader known as “JasperLoader” has been increasingly active over the past few months and is currently being distributed via malicious spam campaigns primarily targeting central European countries, with a particular focus on Germany and Italy. JasperLoader employs a multi-stage infection process that features several obfuscation techniques that make analysis more difficult. It appears that this loader was designed with resiliency and flexibility in mind, as evidenced in later stages of the infection process.
