Upon successful execution of the exploit, a backdoor is inserted into the firmware, allowing remote read/write commands to be issued to the firmware via crafted action frames (thus allowing easy remote control over the Wi-Fi chip).Beniamini added.

An attacker can run the code remotely which results in the installation of simple backdoor allowing read/write access to the firmware.

By installing the backdoor attacker can gain R/W access to the firmware and no user interaction is needed. Beniamini released PoC script and also the steps to run the exploit.

Security Patches Released –  iPhone 7

Provided demo codes work on iPhone7 devices, but the vulnerability affects the range of devices with Broadcom WiFi chips, smart TVs with tvOS and Android Devices.

Beniamini said all the devices that using Broadcom WiFi Chip Firmware BCM4355C0 are vulnerable to CVE-2017-11120.

Apple released security updates for both iOS and tvOS, for Android update was released with the Android Security Bulletin—September 2017.

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
