Magecart-like attacks that are designed to steal personal and payment card details of customers from websites continue to be a major concern for retailers. Lately, the blender manufacturer, NutriBullet and the online guitar tutoring platform TrueFire have fallen victim to these types of attacks. While NutriBullet has been targeted by Magecart group 8 with a variety of skimmers, TrueFire suffered a breach after hackers gained unauthorized access to its multiple websites.
Two new malware that are capable of damaging victims’ files and systems were also reported in the last 24 hours. The first one is a CrazyCoin worm that spreads through the EternalBlue exploit kit and the second is Nefilim ransomware that most likely spreads via Remote Desktop Services. The CrazyCoin worm includes mining, hacking, and backdoor modules in its arsenal.

Top Vulnerabilities Reported in the Last 24 Hours
Trend Micro patches two zero-day flaws
Trend Micro has patched two zero-day vulnerabilities that are exploited in the wild by hackers. The two flaws tracked as CVE-2020-8467 and CVE-2020-8468, impact the company’s Apex One and OfficeScan XG enterprise security products.
Adobe releases updates
Adobe has released security updates for 13 vulnerabilities affecting Acrobat and Reader. The vulnerabilities range from information disclosure to arbitrary code execution. Four of these vulnerabilities are rated as ‘Important’.
Vulnerable password managers
Security experts claim that some commercial passwords managers are liable to cyberattacks by fake apps. This is because these password managers use weak criteria to identify an app and which username and password to suggest for autofill. These flaws can allow malicious hackers to extract credentials, compromise commercial information, or violate employee information.
