The CISA noted a total of seven vulnerabilities in the power distribution units made by Dataprobe in its latest industrial control systems advisory. These vulnerabilities could allow a cybercriminal to pull off unauthenticated remote code execution while also laying bare sensitive information. In another case of fixing a flaw, Parse Server has addressed a security gap that puts highly sensitive user data at risk. The vulnerability description as per Github advisory comprises internal fields and protected fields that can be used as query constraints.

Hackers are always on the hunt for targeting users in the banking sector. In connection with this, top Indian banks are issuing warnings to all its customers against the SOVA mobile banking trojan targeting over 200 applications.

RedLine infects Video Game publisher 
2K, an American video game publisher, acknowledged that hackers gained access to one of its vendors' credentials to reach their help desk, used to provide support to all of its gamers. Attackers sent an email to certain players with a malicious link disguised as support tickets. When users open the tickets, they receive another email from claimed 2K representative Prince.K that included links to download a file containing the RedLine information-stealing malware.

Top Vulnerabilities Reported in Last 24 Hours

Parse Server patches a critical bug
Parse Server, an open source project backend infrastructure, was patched to fix a security bug identified as CVE-2022-36079. If exploited, the security hole permitted brute-force-styled attacks to access confidential user data on the Node.js API server and Express WAF modules. The bug was patched in versions 4.10.14 and 5.2.5 of the parse-server NPM package with all prior versions on these release lines affected. The patch requires the master key to use internal and protected fields as query restrictions.

Critical vulnerabilities in power distribution units
The CISA warned of seven system vulnerabilities in Dataprobe's iBoot-PDU power distribution unit product in its alert. CVE-2022-3183 and CVE-2022-3184 have been recognized as two firmware flaws, and the remaining five discovered vulnerabilities span from CVE-2022-3185 to CVE-2022-3189. If the first two vulnerabilities are exploited, attackers will be able to interrupt essential services. The remaining five holes allow hackers to gain access to the administrative page and expose sensitive data.

Prototype bug bypasses Sanitizer API
Attackers managed to bypass the Sanitizer API, a built-in browser library, courtesy of the prototype pollution bug in the Chromium project. Using prototype pollution, attackers can manipulate an application's behavior in various ways and compromise it by abusing the rules of JavaScript. Prototype pollution can happen both on the client side i.e browser and on the server side i.e Node.js servers.
