Sigh of relief for victims affected by Lorenz ransomware. A decryption tool that can enable them to decrypt their files without paying a ransom is now available for free to the public. The ransomware uses a blend of RSA and AES-128 algorithms to encrypt files on a compromised device.
However, there are some new threats as well. A zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) can be a matter of concern for several large companies if patches are not applied in time. Identified as an authentication bypass flaw, it can enable attackers to conduct remote code execution attacks on the CRX Package Manager. In other news, a version of PJobRAT is being used in an ongoing attack campaign to pilfer contact details, SMSes, and GPS locations of individuals.
