Internet Explorer and Windows zero-day exploits used in Operation PowerFall

Executive summary

In May 2020, Kaspersky technologies prevented an attack on a South Korean company by a malicious script for Internet Explorer. Closer analysis revealed that the attack used a previously unknown full chain that consisted of two zero-day exploits: a remote code execution exploit for Internet Explorer and an elevation of privilege exploit for Windows. Unlike a previous full chain that we discovered, used in Operation WizardOpium, the new full chain targeted the latest builds of Windows 10, and our tests demonstrated reliable exploitation of Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 10 build 18363 x64.

What is Identity Governance Fatigue?

The Traditional Identity Journey

Over the past decade, organizations have gone through many different stages of the identity journey. Depending on the size and maturity of your organization, you are probably in one of six identity maturity categories (see diagram below).

Your lack of progress is likely due to the limitations of your existing identity governance solution.
