Learn the Unique Weaknesses of Apple Devices at Black Hat USA

At Black Hat USA this August don’t miss the new Mobile track of Briefings that’s full of cutting-edge insights into the unique weaknesses and strengths of Apple’s hardware.

Look, No Hands! -- The Remote, Interaction-less Attack Surface of the iPhone explores the remote, interaction-less attack surface of iOS. In this 50-minute Briefing a Google security engineer will discuss the potential for vulnerabilities in SMS, MMS, Visual Voicemail, iMessage and Mail, and explain how to set up tooling to test these components. You’ll also see two informative examples of vulnerabilities discovered using these methods.

You can also check out Attacking iPhone XS Max for expert insight into how Apple's implementation of Pointer Authentication Code (PAC) on the A12 SoC comes more into play for exploit mitigations This talk will discuss Apple's PAC implementation based on tests, introduce an ancient bug in the XNU that is still affecting the latest official release of iOS (i.e. 12.1.4), and elaborate on how to bypass PAC and gain arbitrary kernel read/write. You’ll also learn about post exploitation techniques, including how to make arbitrary kernel function call based on arbitrary kernel read/write.

In All Your Apple are Belong to Us: Unique Identification and Cross-Device Tracking of Apple Devices security experts will show a study of Apple device unique identification and cross-device tracking technologies. Experts will list several approaches (e.g., public APIs and vulnerabilities like CVE-2018-4322) to uniquely identify the Apple device even after a system rebooting or resetting. They’ll also present advanced algorithms and vulnerabilities (e.g., CVE-2018-4321) to associate Apple device through deterministic user IDs (e.g., Apple IDs and phone numbers) and probabilistic data (e.g., device names, coordinate information, and IP addresses). Last, but not least, you’ll discuss feasible solutions (e.g., instrumentation and differential privacy) to prevent unique identification and cross-device tracking.

Black Hat USA returns to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.

Enterprise Vulnerabilities
From DHS/US-CERT's National Vulnerability Database
CVE-2019-7617
PUBLISHED: 2019-08-22
When the Elastic APM agent for Python versions before 5.1.0 is run as a CGI script, there is a variable name clash flaw if a remote attacker can control the proxy header. This could result in an attacker redirecting collected APM data to a proxy of their choosing.
CVE-2019-14751
PUBLISHED: 2019-08-22
NLTK Downloader before 3.4.5 is vulnerable to a directory traversal, allowing attackers to write arbitrary files via a ../ (dot dot slash) in an NLTK package (ZIP archive) that is mishandled during extraction.
CVE-2019-9153
PUBLISHED: 2019-08-22
Improper Verification of a Cryptographic Signature in OpenPGP.js <=4.1.2 allows an attacker to forge signed messages by replacing its signatures with a "standalone" or "timestamp" signature.
CVE-2019-9154
PUBLISHED: 2019-08-22
Improper Verification of a Cryptographic Signature in OpenPGP.js <=4.1.2 allows an attacker to pass off unsigned data as signed.
CVE-2019-9155
PUBLISHED: 2019-08-22
A cryptographic issue in OpenPGP.js <=4.2.0 allows an attacker who is able provide forged messages and gain feedback about whether decryption of these messages succeeded to conduct an invalid curve attack in order to gain the victim's ECDH private key.
