      GRIMM is pleased to announce the launch of their new Private Vulnerability Disclosure (PVD) program. This offering allows defenders to get ahead of the attack curve, instead of reacting to unknown threats, by providing previously unknown vulnerabilities.  Subscribers will have access to a stream of high-impact vulnerabilities from GRIMM's internal research team. Release timing will be at least two weeks before the vulnerabilities are publicly known, allowing partners to defend themselves before most attackers are aware of the vulnerability/vulnerabilities.  Each PVD release will include: Full technical details of the vulnerabilities and affected systems Proof-of-concept exploit, which provides: Verification that specific configurations are (or are not) vulnerable Assessment of defenses to determine true effectiveness Documentation illustrating how the attack works, enabling Blue teams to write robust mitigations and detections Red teams to improve skills on the art of exploit

New Old Bugs in the Linux Kernel

  Introduction Dusting off a few new (old) vulns Have you ever been casually perusing the source code of the Linux kernel and thought to yourself "Wait a minute, that can’t be right"? That’s the position we found ourselves in when we found three bugs in a forgotten corner of the mainline Linux kernel that turned out to be about 15 years old. Unlike most things that we find gathering dust, these bugs turned out to still be good, and one turned out to be useable as a Local Privilege Escalation (LPE) in multiple Linux environments. Who you calling SCSI? The particular subsystem in question is the SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) data transport, which is a standard for transferring data made for connecting computers with peripheral devices, originally via a physical cable, like hard drives. SCSI is a venerable standard originally published in 1986 and was the go-to for server setups, and iSCSI is basically SCSI over TCP. SCSI is still in use today, especially
