Vulnerable Click2Gov software continues to affect users paying utility bills online. In the past, the unpatched software has been exploited multiple times to affect residents in dozens of cities in the U.S. and this time it has affected the residents of Aurora city. It is believed that the residents who made water payments to the city between August 30 and October 14, 2019, through the Click2Gov system may be affected.

In other news, security researchers have uncovered a malicious Chrome extension named Shitcoin Wallet. Once the extension is installed, it requests permission to inject JavaScript code on 77 websites. This makes it easy for the extension to steal passwords and private keys from cryptocurrency wallets and cryptocurrency portals.

Top Malware Reported in the Last 24 Hours

Shitcoin Wallet extension
A malicious extension named Shitcoin Wallet has been found stealing passwords and private keys from cryptocurrency wallets and cryptocurrency portals. To initiate the stealing process, the extension requests permission to inject JavaScript code on 77 websites. When users navigate to any of these 77 sites, the extension loads and injects an additional JS file from ‘https://erc20wallet[.]tk/js/content_.js’. The JS file contains the obfuscated code to trick users. Once activated, the malicious JS code records the user’s login credentials, searches for private keys, and finally sends the data to erc20wallet[.]tk.

Top Vulnerabilities Reported in the Last 24 Hours

Starbucks API key exposed
Developers at Starbucks left an API key exposed that could be used by attackers to access internal systems and manipulate the list of authorized users. The issue has been rated as ‘critical’  because it could allow attackers to execute commands on systems, add or remove users which have access to internal systems, and potentially AWS account takeover. The key was found in a public GitHub repository.

DTEN vulnerabilities
Multiple vulnerabilities have been uncovered in DTEN D5 and D7 conferencing and collaboration systems. The flaws could be exploited to expose sensitive data included in live meetings and saved artifacts like conversations, recordings, notes, and interactive whiteboards.

Top Scams Reported in the Last 24 Hours

Scammers use tricks to bypass email filters
Scammers involved in sextortion email scams are utilizing new tactics to bypass spam filters. These include sending emails in foreign languages or splitting bitcoin addresses into two parts. Adding these two tactics makes it more difficult for the recipient to understand what they are receiving. Usually, a sextortion email includes a message to scare the recipients. The email goes on to say that spyware has been installed on the recipient’s system and has captured several inappropriate images and videos of them.
