[Image: hackerhackingdarkhoodie-580x358.jpg]

             A Zero-Day in Windows OS is currently being exploited in the wild, and aspiring APT groups have been hot on its trail. A fairly new APT group, designated "SandCat" has been utilizing the Zero-Day for quite some time. This group was originally observed engaging in activity in 2018, but according to speculation, they may have been around for some time. 

      The Zero-Day, designated CVE-2019-0797 is a vulnerability that is located in the win32k driver due to a bad sync between undocumented two syscalls. 

      Researchers from Kasbersky Labs, had this to say in regards to the Zero-Day:

      “The problem lies in the fact that when the syscalls NtDCompositionDiscardFrame and NtDCompositionDestroyConnection are executed simultaneously, the function DiscardAllCompositionFrames may be executed at a time when the NtDCompositionDiscardFrame syscall is already looking for a frame to release or has already found it. This condition leads to a use-after-free scenario.”

     Microsoft has urged all Windows users to update their systems with the latest patch for this vulnerability.

      That was the news folks, have a good week, and stay safe out there.
