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

Title: Netwire malware delivered through Firefox vulnerability
Description: Attackers are exploiting a now-patched Mozilla Firefox vulnerability to deliver the Netwire malware. At the time of first exploitation, there was no fix for the bug. Netwire uses two separate functions to persist — once as a launch agent and again as a login item. New Snort rules prevent the malware from downloading its final payload.
