TippingPoint Threat Intelligence and Zero-Day Coverage – Week of March 12, 2018

This week marked the 11th annual Pwn2Own contest held during the CanSecWest conference in Vancouver and while the contest had fewer entries compared to previous years, it was still an exciting event filled with a little drama. Over the course of two days, the Zero Day Initiative awarded $267,000 for vulnerabilities covering Apple (5), Microsoft (4), Oracle (2) and Mozilla (1) and named a new Master of Pwn: Richard Zhu (fluorescence). Congratulations go out to Richard and all of the other contestants, with a special thank you to our partner Microsoft and sponsor VMware. For a sneak peek of our upcoming coverage, click here.

Microsoft Security Updates

This week’s Digital Vaccine® (DV) package includes coverage for Microsoft updates released on or before March 13, 2018. Just a day before the Pwn2Own contest, Microsoft released 75 security patches covering Internet Explorer (IE), Edge, ChakraCore, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and ASP.NET Core. The following table maps Digital Vaccine filters to the Microsoft updates. You can get more detailed information on this month’s security updates from Dustin Childs’ March 2018 Security Update Review from the Zero Day Initiative:
