Re: MSF and Mobile
So the short answer is probably not a big issue for mobile at this point. As far as I know, Shodan searches only for IP addresses, finding the folks who were negligent in adding protections. Mobile only really has an IP when it connects to a router for wifi connectivity. Android, arguably the largest open source project, would probably have quite a number of exploits that could be hit, but I'm not sure that Autosploit would really know how to find the devices, since it is dependent on Shodan for building its target list. I hope that this makes sense. I'll of course be following this story to see how it evolves.

Re: Example
At this point, it's hard to tell which projects it will impact most, but we can assume that the most popular ones will be most affected since there are more targets to hit with this wide net approach. For example, a lot of IoT type devices (which are basically small servers) are based on Linux-based toolkits and are rarely if ever patched. What will be interesting to follow is whether this leads to more folks getting on top of their patching ops, although this is unlikely to make it to the airwaves.

MSF and Mobile
Will this work for mobile devices as well? Since MSF can hack Android on Kali?

CVE-2020-25596
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. x86 PV guest kernels can experience denial of service via SYSENTER. The SYSENTER instruction leaves various state sanitization activities to software. One of Xen's sanitization paths injects a #GP fault, and incorrectly delivers it twice to the guest. T...
CVE-2020-25597
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There is mishandling of the constraint that once-valid event channels may not turn invalid. Logic in the handling of event channel operations in Xen assumes that an event channel, once valid, will not become invalid over the life time of a guest. Howeve...
CVE-2020-25598
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen 4.14.x. There is a missing unlock in the XENMEM_acquire_resource error path. The RCU (Read, Copy, Update) mechanism is a synchronisation primitive. A buggy error path in the XENMEM_acquire_resource exits without releasing an RCU reference, which is conceptually similar...
CVE-2020-25599
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There are evtchn_reset() race conditions. Uses of EVTCHNOP_reset (potentially by a guest on itself) or XEN_DOMCTL_soft_reset (by itself covered by XSA-77) can lead to the violation of various internal assumptions. This may lead to out of bounds memory a...
CVE-2020-25600
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. Out of bounds event channels are available to 32-bit x86 domains. The so called 2-level event channel model imposes different limits on the number of usable event channels for 32-bit x86 domains vs 64-bit or Arm (either bitness) ones. 32-bit x86 domains...
