Exploit for zero day vulnerability in Microsoft Windows 7 and 8.1 has been discovered by an independent researcher who discovered the flaw in the zero day exploitation framework.
The flaw allows a malicious user to compromise a computer by exploiting a flaw in a Windows 7 or 8.x operating system.
The vulnerability has been identified in Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
The bug can be exploited through the Windows Defender sandbox on a computer, while the vulnerable operating system is still running on the target computer.
“This is an important bug for users and companies,” the researcher, who is working for an unnamed security company, wrote in a blog post.
“As the most popular mobile operating system in the world, Microsoft is not only the only one to suffer from this issue, but also the only platform that doesn’t have a secure sandbox, which means a malicious app can compromise a Windows computer and install malicious software.
We have discovered the vulnerability and are working on fixing it,” he added.
“Microsoft is actively working on addressing this issue and we have provided security updates to all customers affected.”
The researcher said he discovered the bug through a routine check of a Windows Defender service called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
The researcher reported the vulnerability on December 12, and it was patched on January 15.
Microsoft has not yet provided an official statement on the vulnerability.
“We are aware of this vulnerability and have released security updates as soon as we can,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement to PC World.
“The security update addresses the vulnerability but does not fix the underlying flaw.
Microsoft will update affected customers when we can.”
The flaw affects both Windows XP and Windows Server 2001 and is known as CVE-2014-4279.
The attacker needs access to a computer to exploit the flaw and will be able to exploit it through a remote code execution vulnerability, which has a “highly limited” impact, according to the vulnerability details.
A security researcher, meanwhile, discovered the security flaw in October and patched it on December 16.
The CVE-2015-9171 exploit is a zero day bug and was released by the Microsoft Security Team in July, according the CVE description.
“In the current version of Windows Server, CVE-2011-2068 is included, which can be used to remotely execute code on a remote Windows system without having to use a specially crafted file,” the vulnerability description said.
The researcher told PC World that the flaw could be exploited by “anyone who can exploit this vulnerability”.
He said that the vulnerability was present in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.
It was first reported in January by security researcher Troy Hunt, who posted an analysis of the flaw on February 1.
He said the vulnerability existed in Windows 8, 8.0 and 10, and could be used by attackers to take control of a computer.
Hunt published a security advisory on February 4.
The attack on RoBLox Exploit Framework, which is designed to enable RoBLX to run on Windows 7 systems, 8, 10, 12-bit, 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows, is described in a security bulletin from Microsoft.
The exploit is part of an attack dubbed “RBLox-exploit”, which has been used to take over a few thousand RoBLx accounts and have stolen credit card numbers, passwords, and other data, according Microsoft.
RoBLFX-exploitation was first disclosed in January.
The Exploit kit has been released on November 17 and is free to download for anyone who wants to run it.
“You don’t need to be a security expert to exploit RoBLAX.
It’s as easy as installing the RoBLax Exploit Kit and running it,” the ExploitKit description reads.
RoFLx is an online multiplayer multiplayer game developed by RoBLix and published by TheRoBLox.com.
The online multiplayer game is part social networking and part virtual reality, according RoBLIX.
RoBX-exploration is used by players who want to take advantage of the multiplayer gameplay.
