JUST IN: Install Latest Chrome Update to Patch 0-Day Bug Under Active Attacks #AcePCHelpDesk report

Install Latest Chrome Update to Patch 0-Day Bug Under Active Attackschrome browser software update
Google yesterday released a new critical software update for its Chrome web browser for desktops that will be rolled out to Windows, Mac, and Linux users over the next few days.

The latest Chrome 80.0.3987.122 includes security fixes for three new vulnerabilities, all of which have been marked ‘HIGH’ in severity, including one that (CVE-2020-6418) has been reportedly exploited in the wild.

The brief description of the Chrome bugs, which impose a significant risk to your systems if left unpatched, are as follows:

  • Integer overflow in ICU — Reported by André Bargull on 2020-01-22
  • Out of bounds memory access in streams (CVE-2020-6407) — Reported by Sergei Glazunov of Google Project Zero on 2020-01-27
  • Type confusion in V8 (CVE-2020-6418) — Reported by Clement Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group on 2020-02-18

The Integer Overflow vulnerability was disclosed by André Bargull privately to Google last month, earning him $5,000 in rewards, while the other two vulnerabilities — CVE-2020-6407 and CVE-2020-6418 — were identified by experts from the Google security team.

Google has said CVE-2020-6418, which stems from a type confusion error in its V8 JavaScript rendering engine, is being actively exploited, although technical information about the vulnerability is restricted at this time.

The search giant has not disclosed further details of the vulnerabilities so that it gives affected users enough time to install the Chrome update and prevent hackers from exploiting them.

A successful exploitation of the integer overflow or out-of-bounds write flaws could allow a remote attacker to compromise a vulnerable system by tricking the user into visiting a specially crafted web page that takes advantage of the exploit to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

It’s recommended that Windows, Linux, and macOS users download and install the latest version of Chrome by heading to Help > “About Chrome” from the settings menu.

Linux Foundation Survey Proves Open-Source Offices Work Better #AcePCHelpDesk reports

DevNull127 shares some of the key findings from The New Stack’s second annual “Open Source Programs in the Enterprise” survey, co-sponsored by VMware and in partnership with The Linux Foundation’s TODO Group: Companies with initiatives to promote open source overwhelmingly say these efforts are improving their companies’ software practices.

The results [of the survey] show that proponents of free and open-source software (FOSS) have moved to the next phases of open source adoption, widening its usage within the enterprise while keeping alive the spirit and ethos of non-commercial software communities. 69% are at least sometimes using open-source code in commercial products, with that figure jumping to 83% among technology companies — within three percentage points of the same survey’s results last year: And most (79%) Internet-scale technology companies with more than 10,000 employees already have an open-source management program, which is a slight increase compared to last year. That stability shows that the next big changes in enterprise open source will instead involve its scope and how much enterprises emphasise giving back to the community. Increased innovation rose to become the most cited benefit of open-source programs.

Participants said development speed, technology flexibility, and total cost of ownership are the top three. Lower support costs were also seen as a likely benefit: But open-source programs are also improving how software development is handled. In response to one of our new questions, 81% of respondents say their program has had a positive impact on their company’s software practices. In an open-ended follow-up question, code reviews and license-compliance processes were repeatedly cited as specific practices that were improved as a direct result of the program.

Furthermore, code quality and reduced costs were often cited as specific benefits coming from improved software practices: While “quality” is often hard to define, many respondents say newly-instituted code reviews have been a specific positive impact on their company’s software practices.
