Fresh IE bug being actively exploited

Fresh IE bug being actively exploited

Sophos informs that CVE-2012-1875 vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 that was patched last week is being actively exploited. According to AV experts, cybercrooks use specially crafted JavaScript code that can be embedded in a web page and compromise systems of random visitors.

There also is a module in Metasploit framework that leverages this vulnerability. This framework is freely distributed and everyone who knows what he is doing can easily gain a functional exploit.

The vulnerability is caused by memory mismanagement that occurs due to Same ID property error. The exploitation of a vulnerability of this kind happens when attacker manages to bypass DEP (data execution prevention) and ASLR (address-space layout randomisation) functionals.

In the case with this vulnerability ASLR is passed by forcing IE to find and load an old version of the Microsoft C runtime DLL that was compiled before ASLR use become a standard. DEP is bypassed using a technique, commonly known as ROP (return-oriented programming).

All IE 8 users are strongly recommended to upgrade browser to 9th version or to install updates using Microsoft Update Center or on Microsoft Technet website.

Sophos post is accessible here.
