Powershell Backdoor with DGA Capability, (Fri, Oct 7th)

DGA ("Domain Generation Algorithm") is a popular tactic used by malware to make connections with their C2 more stealthy and difficult to block. The idea is to generate domain names periodically and use them during the defined period. An alternative is to generate a lot of domains and loop across them to find an available C2 server. Attackers just register a few domain names and can change them very quickly.

Technical Advisory - OpenJDK - Weak Parsing Logic in java.net.InetAddress and Related Classes

An attacker may trivially bypass the use of InetAddress::getAllByName to validate inputs. Note: As input validation is not an appropriate mechanism to protect against injection attacks - as opposed to output encoding and Harvard architecture-style APIs - this issue is itself considered to be of Low risk as code relying on the documented validation for such purposes should be considered insecure regardless of this issue.
