Internet Explorer 0 Day - Sept 17, 2012

L3 Networker

Is there a signature for the new IE 0 day yet?

There is a metasploit module out so.. that means there a working exploit 'in the wild' to base a sig on...

Normally I find the CVE and then look it up in Threat Vault which will give me the threats version number (eg: 839-1155) that I can confirm is installed on my FW.

However this time, I cant find a CVE number so Im asking here.



update 330-1516 available now

Thanks, downloaded and installed just fine !

Hi everybody,

thanks for the update. Anyway, I've got a question: Why are there two threat-ids obviously covering the same vulnerability? How do they differ and how do I have to interpret the different default actions?

The background of my question is that I'm not really sure what will happen if the vulnerability protection profile is configured to apply the "default" action for all "critical" threats --> will it execute "reset-client" or only "alert" or both?

PS: Sorry for asking, I'm aware that maybe this is a (dumb) newbie question...

Good question...

My current guess is that both will fire since they have the same info:

so first it will reset-client and then it will log (alert)... but that sounds odd because if default action is reset-client then logging is included in that - isnt it?

Or if someone wants just to monitor/log if/when such packets are seen then they would set this manually to alert wouldnt they?

Like what you see?
