CVE 2018- 8453 MONTHLY RISK & THREAT ANALYSIS REPORT
On December 6, 2018, threat actor X advertised the sale of the CVE-2018-8453 one-day exploit in a cyber crime forum. The exploit enables privilege escalation for an attacker that facilitates the full compromise of a victimized system. There is limited information on X, though he is associated with the sale of one-day exploits and enjoys a favorable reputation level, bolstering his bona fides as a reliable seller of merchandise. To date, suspected state actors have been observed leveraging the CVE-2018-8453 exploit against targeted entities in the Middle East region; however, the publicity surrounding this vulnerability coupled with slow implementation of available patches make any organization susceptible to compromise.
