Good morning, everyone!

This week’s critical vulnerabilities:
  • Atlassian has released fixes for critical flaws in Bitbucket & Crowd
  • Google Chrome has released an update to fix its 6th zero-day vulnerability of 2022
  • Cisco has released 4 security fixes for its Identity Server Engine (ISE)
  • NVIDIA has released an update for its GPU Display Driver to address 29 vulnerabilities in both Windows and Linux systems

Patch All the Things!

This Thursday at 1PM (CT), Cisco is presenting a free webinar, "Securing Your Home Network." If you can't make the actual webinar time, go ahead and register anyway so you can view the recording when it's made available.
TikTok "Invisible Body" challenge deploying malware

Attackers are exploiting the popular "Invisible Body" TikTok video challenge to install malware capable of stealing passwords, Discord accounts, cryptocurency wallets, passwords and credit card info stored in browsers, files from your computer, and maybe more:

A new and trending TikTok challenge requires you to film yourself naked while using TikTok's "Invisible Body" filter, which removes the body from the video and replaces it with a blurry background.

This challenge has led to people posting videos of them allegedly naked but obscured by the filter.

To capitalize on this, threat actors are creating TikTok videos that claim to offer a special "unfiltering" filter to remove TikTok's body masking effect and expose the TikTokers' nude bodies.

However, this software is fake and installs the "WASP Stealer (Discord Token Grabber)" malware.

Remember, consult original sources! Download software only from known sources. Install apps only from known, reputable developers. (and seriously? don't use TikTok)

LastPass breached again

For the second time this year, LastPass has suffered a data breach. In August, the company announced that source code was stolen in a data breach. It appears that some of this stolen data was used to commit the most recent infiltration of the company's network.

At this time, LastPass is stating that some user data was stolen, but that passwords "remain safely encrypted due to LastPass's Zero Knowledge architecture." If you are a LastPass user, I suggest watching this developing story.

Remember, you can read past editions of this newsletter on our website, along with tons more information under the Resources tab.

Have a great week!
