Worms are the most destructive force in the field of information security, bringing multi-million-dollar damage to companies. Despite this, there are viruses that are beneficial. Hopper is such a virus.
Let me remind you that we also reported that The New AI system thatDot Novelty Detector Speeds Up Detecting of Malicious Activity.
Detection tools are not good at detecting non-exploit-based distribution, which is what worms do best. Most information security solutions are less resistant to worm attack methods, such as the use of an impersonation token [...]
The issue poses a threat to 64-bit systems with Intel AVX-512 (Advanced Vector Extensions 512) support, but not all experts agree that this issue should be treated as a vulnerability at all.
Let me remind you that we also wrote that Experts Found Long-Standing Bugs in Avast and AVG Antiviruses.
It all started with the fact that in the new version of OpenSSL, released last week, a command injection vulnerability (CVE-2022-2068) was addressed, though it could not be completely fixed using the previous patch (CVE-2022-1292).
