Apache HTTP Server CVE-2021-41773 Exploited in the Wild

On Monday, October 4, 2021, Apache published an advisory on CVE-2021-41773, an unauthenticated remote file disclosure vulnerability in HTTP Server version 2.4.49 (and only in 2.4.49). The vulnerability arises from the mishandling of URL-encoded path traversal characters in the HTTP GET request. Public proof-of-concept exploit code is widely available, and Apache and others have noted that this vulnerability is being exploited in the wild. While the original advisory indicated that CVE-2021-41773 was merely an information disclosure bug, both Rapid7 and community researchers have verified that the vulnerability can be used for remote code execution when mod_cgi is enabled.


Medtronics Insulin Pump Controllers Are Vulnerable to Hackers

The company just expanded its recall of insulin pump remote controllers that can be hijacked to alter insulin amounts. Medical device maker Medtronic has expanded its recall of remote controllers for its MiniMed 508 and MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps. The reason? The devices are a potential cybersecurity risk. According to the Food and Drug Administration, unauthorized people could hijack the devices to alter how much insulin is delivered to a patient.


Life is Pane: Persistence via Preview Handlers

[...] The preview pane allows users to have a quick peek at the content of a selected file without actually having to open it. This feature is disabled on default Windows 10 builds, but can be enabled in the Explorer menu under View-Preview pane. While this seems relatively simple at face value, it is anything but under the hood. For example, how does Windows know how to display the contents of certain filetypes but not others? Are the previews controlled by Explorer or is it done in another process? Are these handlers abusable? We spent a few days exploring preview handlers to gain a deeper understanding of how they work and answer these questions.
