A new exploit for the upcoming film “Ex Machina” is among the top vulnerabilities exploited by cybercriminals in 2017



The exploits were discovered by researchers at security firm Kryptos Labs, and are the first to be published in the security community’s most comprehensive database of cyberattacks, which is the first in a series of reports on recent trends in cyberthreats.

Researchers at Kryptos found two types of exploits are among the Top 20 Most Popular Exploits in 2017, as well as a few other types of attacks that are in the Top 10 Most Common.

They identified a new variant of the CVE-2017-0366 exploitation, which Kryptos called “EXMP-19.”

“This exploit has the ability to run arbitrary code within an environment without any user interaction,” Kryptos wrote.

“It is likely to be used to carry out a large scale compromise of a targeted machine, such as through network compromise or through a targeted attack against an entire network.”

This vulnerability has been patched in March 2017, and the researchers were able to show that the exploit has been in the wild for months.

The exploit was also found to be the same as one that the FBI used to hack into a targeted target’s computer, but the FBI never found it to be connected to the cyberattack that hit the film production company last October.

Kryptos said that the new version of the exploit was able to bypass an authentication mechanism, and was capable of running code that would enable attackers to execute arbitrary code, such that the computer would be able to log on to the target’s system.

“This attack is more than just an inconvenience; it is an absolute and immediate threat to any company that relies on their users to authenticate,” the researchers wrote.

The researchers said that while it may not be the most advanced attack in terms of how it can be used, it was still very effective, as it allows an attacker to bypass the login screen and the system authorization process and potentially execute arbitrary commands.

“The real danger here is that the vulnerability is not limited to this particular instance of exploitation, but rather extends to any systems that are vulnerable to the attack.

In this case, this means anyone who uses the same login credentials to log in to a target’s systems,” they wrote.

In their report, the researchers also identified a number of other types and types of vulnerabilities, including:Multiple stack overflows via a malicious memory allocationA buffer overflow (CVE-2017.0369) with an array-like data structure that could be used by an attackerTo perform a remote code execution (CVE.17081) via an array of memory accesses and buffer overflowsThe ability to execute an arbitrary file via an arbitrary memory allocationTo run arbitrary JavaScript in a JavaScript context without a sandbox (CVE_2015.0274)CVE-2018-8248: A memory leak in the JavaScript stack (CVE 2017.0368)The researchers wrote that there are still many more exploits they want to study, but that they are going to keep monitoring these and adding to the database.

“As more information is shared, we will continue to update our findings and research on the most common exploit types, exploit classes, and more,” they said.
