Microsoft WPBT flaw allows hackers to install rootkits on Windows devices http://leaf-eu.org/microsoft-wpbt-flaw-allows-hackers-to-install-rootkits-on-windows-devices/ Sat, 25 Sep 2021 15:16:08 +0000 http://leaf-eu.org/microsoft-wpbt-flaw-allows-hackers-to-install-rootkits-on-windows-devices/

Security researchers have discovered a flaw in the Microsoft Windows Platform Binary Table (WPBT) that could be exploited in simple attacks to install rootkits on all Windows computers shipped since 2012.

Rootkits are malicious tools created by threat actors to evade detection by burrowing deep into the operating system and used to fully support compromised systems while avoiding detection.

WPBT is a fixed firmware ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) table introduced by Microsoft from Windows 8 to allow vendors to run programs every time a device is started.

However, in addition to allowing OEMs to force installation of critical software that cannot be bundled with Windows installation media, this mechanism can also allow attackers to deploy malicious tools, as Microsoft warns in its own documentation.

“Since this feature provides the ability to persistently run system software in the context of Windows, it becomes essential that WPBT-based solutions are as secure as possible and do not expose Windows users to conditions. exploitable, ”says Microsoft.

“In particular, WPBT solutions must not include malware (that is, malware or unwanted software installed without adequate user consent).”

Impacts all computers running Windows 8 or later

The weakness found by Eclypsium researchers has been present on Windows computers since 2012, when the feature was first introduced with Windows 8.

These attacks can use various techniques that allow writing to memory where ACPI tables are located (including WPBT) or by using a malicious boot loader.

This can be by abusing the BootHole vulnerability that bypasses Secure Boot or through DMA attacks from vulnerable devices or components.

“The Eclypsium research team has identified a weakness in Microsoft’s WPBT capability that can allow an attacker to execute malicious code with kernel privileges when a device boots,” Eclypsium researchers said.

“This weakness can potentially be exploited through multiple vectors (eg, physical, remote, and supply chain access) and by multiple techniques (eg, malicious boot loader, DMA, etc.)”

Eclypsium shared the following demo video which shows how this security flaw can be exploited.

Mitigation measures include the use of WDAC policies

After Eclypsium informed Microsoft about the bug, the software giant recommended using a Windows Defender application control policy that helps control which binaries can run on a Windows device.

“The WDAC policy is also enforced for binaries included in the WPBT and should mitigate this problem,” Microsoft says in the support document.

WDAC policies can only be created on client editions of Windows 10 1903 and later and Windows 11 or on Windows Server 2016 and later.

On systems running older versions of Windows, you can use AppLocker policies to control which applications are allowed to run on a Windows client.

“These motherboard flaws can prevent initiatives like Secured-core due to the ubiquitous use of ACPI and WPBT,” added Eclypsium researchers.

“Security professionals need to identify, verify and harden the firmware used in their Windows systems. Businesses will need to consider these vectors and use a layered security approach to ensure that all available fixes are applied and identify any potential compromises on devices.

Eclypsium has found another attack vector that allows malicious actors to take control of the boot process of a targeted device and break OS-level security checks in the BIOSConnect feature of Dell SupportAssist, a software package. preinstalled on most Dell Windows devices.

As the researchers revealed, the problem “affects 129 Dell models of consumer and business laptops, desktops and tablets, including Secure Boot protected devices and Dell Secured-core PCs.” with around 30 million individual devices exposed to attacks.

    Very popular in its day, the XJ generation Jeep Cherokee only seems to have developed in recent years. Although legions were built during the model’s decades of production, which stretched from the mid-1980s to the 2000s, their propensity to rust and their popularity as built all-terrain vehicles mean that it didn’t is not easy to find uncluttered original copies. This makes this example from 1985, auctioned now on Bring a Trailer, all the more remarkable.

    This Cherokee has just over 48,000 miles and has been in the same family since new with the seller’s grandparents being the original owners. This low mileage along with a life spent in Washington State explains the well-preserved condition of the body, the envy of XJ enthusiasts in the Midwest and Northeast.

    Microsoft has announced that it will update the Teams meeting list (visible on the Teams Rooms console) to closely align it with the current experience available on the Teams desktop app. This will provide new features such as participant grouping for educated meetings, list sorting by show of hands, built-in user search, and the ability to ask others to join meetings from an invite. or a cat.

    On top of that, Microsoft will better align the position of the list on the console with that of the Teams desktop app while adding a user-friendly touch interface for participant options. Users will also benefit from a unified universal bar that will provide meeting call controls for presenters and attendees for Teams meetings, large meeting support, and live events (presenter only).

    This robust Teams meeting update will also bring chat bubbles, live feedback for meeting attendees, and support for locked meetings for organizers. To help create an immersive experience for hybrid meetings, Microsoft will be making a major update to the front display experience to make it more dynamic, including dividing video participants across two room displays.

    Kerry James Marshall to design windows for National Cathedral – ARTnews.com http://leaf-eu.org/kerry-james-marshall-to-design-windows-for-national-cathedral-artnews-com/ Thu, 23 Sep 2021 19:46:00 +0000 http://leaf-eu.org/kerry-james-marshall-to-design-windows-for-national-cathedral-artnews-com/

    Kerry James Marshall has been chosen to design new windows for the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, church officials said. Previous windows, which were donated by the Daughters of Confederation in 1953, paid homage to Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

    In 2015, windows became a point of contention. Two years later, in 2017, the National Cathedral decided to remove the two stained glass windows honoring Lee and Jackson. At the time, nine people had just been murdered in a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, by white supremacist Dylann Roof. The shooting prompted church leaders to think deeply about the presence of Confederate symbols in the National Cathedral.

    “At the moment, I don’t have a clear idea of ​​what I’m thinking of doing,” Marshall said. the New York Times. “It will have to be a job capable of synthesizing a multiplicity of ideas and feelings about what the country represents for all of us. There will be some kind of imagery that comes across as an invitation to reflect on the meaning of America now. “

    Marshall is a distinguished contemporary artist well known for his commitment to social justice, noir portrayal, and American history. In 2020, Marshall’s work was featured on the cover of VogueSeptember 2020 issue.

    In 2018, Marshall pledged never to create public artwork again after the city of Chicago attempted to sell his mural. Knowledge and power (1995), that he painted for the Chicago Public Library. Although the city reconsidered its choice to sell the work, Marshall has remained disillusioned so far.

    This project represents the first time that Marshall has worked with stained glass. He collaborates with the poet Elizabeth Alexander, who will write a poem to be installed in stone tablets along the windows. The new windows are expected to be unveiled in 2023.

    Arlington aims to set new sustainability standards with new school http://leaf-eu.org/arlington-aims-to-set-new-sustainability-standards-with-new-school/ Thu, 23 Sep 2021 09:38:27 +0000 http://leaf-eu.org/arlington-aims-to-set-new-sustainability-standards-with-new-school/

    Arlington High School is by far the largest public building in the city, which means building a new one offers a unique opportunity to increase the sustainability of Arlington’s buildings and reduce emissions across the city.

    “This is not just a once in a generation opportunity, it is a once in a century opportunity,” said Ryan Katofsky, chair of the AHS Building Committee Sustainability Subcommittee. “There is no doubt that the new building will be much more energy efficient than the old one.

    Katofsky and other committee members are leading efforts to make Arlington’s new high school as environmentally friendly as possible and, ultimately, one of the most environmentally friendly school buildings in the country. . Since the new school replaces a building originally constructed in 1915, the improvements Arlington expects to see with the new building are both large and small; from zero emissions to better access to recycling.
