Microsoft has published some helpful guidance against the BlackLotus UEFI bootkit vulnerability that can bypass Secure Boot, VBS, BitLocker, Windows Defender, and more to infect updated Windows PCs.
Microsoft has released a couple of PowerShell scripts to address a BitLocker bypass security vulnerability issue. In its bulletin, the company has explained the differences between the two scripts.
BlackLotus, which is a bootkit, has been doing the rounds on the internet since last year. This bootkit is capable of bypassing Secure Boot, disabling BitLocker, Microsoft Defender, and more.
AMD has advised users to update Ryzen Master as it was vulnerable to a high severity flaw. This follows the earlier report today where the company's CPUs have begun exhibiting fTPM stutters on Linux.
Microsoft has formally announced that it has deprecated MSDT and its related troubleshooters. The company has explained in a document how the retirement is going to be a gradual phase out.
Microsoft Defender, AVG, Avast, and more, were found vulnerable to a new zero-day security exploit through which harmless files, even system files, could be deleted using the anti-virus.
Today, Microsoft has issued important security fixes to address DoS vulnerabilities affecting .NET Core and Visual Studio. The patches are available via .NET 6.0.9 and .NET Core 3.1.29.
HP has warned that it has discovered a new high severity privilege escalation vulnerability inside its own Support Assistant software utility. The company has also issued a fix for the security flaw.
Google has revealed an expansion to its Vulnerability Reward Program (VRP). It is designed to encourage privately reporting security flaws in open source software in exchange for monetary rewards.
Modern Intel processors consisting of 10th Gen, 11th Gen and 12th Gen CPUs have been found to be vulnerable to a new "ÆPIC" security flaw. The vulnerability is able to exploit Intel's APIC MMIO.
AMD Zen-based processors with Simultaneous Multi-threading (SMT) like Ryzen, Threadripper, EPYC, and Athlon CPUs have been found to be vulnerable to a new “SQUIP” side-channel attack.
Atlassian has disclosed yet another critical severity flaw in Confluence. The latest issue is very trivial to exploit as it involves leveraging hardcoded credentials to get wide access to Confluence.
Following in the footsteps of Chrome, Edge has received an update to fix a rather severe 0-day exploit too. This is because the issue affects all browsers based on Chromium, including Edge.
Google has rolled out security updates for Chrome across various channels to fix a handful of issues, including one 0-day exploit. Details of the problem are private for now but it has high severity.
Microsoft has patched a major issue in Azure Service Fabric affecting Linux clusters on the cloud. The service is the backbone of many Microsoft projects including Cortana/Bing and Skype for Business.
QNAP has issued a patch of a security vulnerability that could affect certain configurations of its NAS Drives. The flaw resides in PHP that deals with FPM. It can allow remote code execution.
Several Intel CPUs from different generations have been found to be susceptible to new processor vulnerabilities related to MMIO Stale Data. Microsoft and Intel have published advisories about it.
Following the recent Follina security vulnerability, another Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) bug has been found called "DogWalk". This one too has been ignored by Microsoft at first glance.
Several popular Lenovo consumer models, including IdeaPad, Legion, and more, have been found to be vulnerable to UEFI firmware security bugs. The vulnerabilities can lead to privilege of escalation.
Azure Defender for IoT had five security vulnerabilities that SentinelOne‘s SentinelLabs had discovered and proactively reported to Microsoft. Some of the flaws are rated "Critical" for severity.

An unofficial patch for a Windows LPE security vulnerability under "CVE-2021-34484" is out, one that was supposedly fixed by Microsoft via its Patch Tuesday updates twice, but apparently not.
Intel and ARM are vulnerable to the Spectre-BHB flaw, but AMD is apparently troubled by Spectre v2, which it should have fixed back in 2018. AMD has now issued a new fix for the CVE-2017-5715 bug.
A new CPU exploit based on the infamous Spectre v2 has been discovered. However, when the security patch is applied it can affect performance by up to 36%, that's according to a recent study.
Mozilla has released Firefox v97.0.2. It's an out-of-band security update to patch two "Critical" security flaws that are being exploited in the wild. These 0-Days rely on the 'Use-after-free' bug.
Linux is a lot safer than Windows, macOS, and others because open-source programmers are racing to fix security vulnerabilities in record time, claim security researchers at Google's Project Zero.
Google's Project Zero team has shared some interesting stats regarding its findings for the past couple of years today. Interestingly, it found the most security issues in Microsoft products.
Firmware security research firm Binarly has revealed that it discovered nearly two dozen vulnerabilities in InsydeH2O UEFI used by several vendors like Microsoft, Intel, Dell, HP, and more.
ESET has released updated builds for a whole bunch of its products on Windows. These updated product builds fix a local privilege escalation (LPE) vulnerability that the firm learned about last year.
