Unpatched Oracle Web Logic Server Zero-day Let Hackers Executes Arbitrary Code Remotely & Gain Network Access

New Zero-day flaw discovered in Oracle Web logic server let attackers exploit this vulnerability to remotely execute commands without authorization.

According to seebug report, At present, Oracle officially has not released a patch, the temporary solution is as follows:

1, delete the war package and restart webLogic;

2. Control access to the URL of the /_async/* path through the access policy.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
