Top Vulnerabilities Reported in the Last 24 Hours
A cryptographic flaw in Zerocoin Protocol
Security researchers have spotted a cryptographic flaw in Zeroin protocol and two security flaws in libzerocoin. These flaws cause Zeroin to display a denial-of-spending issue which allows hackers to stop the transactions of the victims and generate a ‘spend’ operation. Thus, the attacker’s spend approved and the real transaction gets dismissed.

rTorrent flaw
Hackers have started a new rTorrent vulnerability attack campaign, targeting the RIAA and NYU user agents. Security researchers are still conducting investigations into the hack. However, it has been found that the sending server of the RIAA user agent is a proxy server based in the Netherlands.

Cisco has released security patches to a serious vulnerability, CVE-2018-0112, in its WebEx software. This flaw allows attackers to remotely execute code on target machines via poisoned Flash files. The flaw is due to insufficient input validation by the Cisco WebEx clients.
