ExtraBacon Now the tool works on the newer versions of the Cisco ASA, including 9.2.(4).


Experts from the Hungarian company SilentSignal spent to upgrade one of the exploits from the Arsenal of hacker group Equation Group. We are talking about the tool ExtraBacon intended for exploitation in a series of hardware firewalls the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA). If before the performance of the exploit was limited to Cisco ASA 8.4.(4) and below, now it works on newer versions, including 9.2.(4).

Previously, the company Cisco has confirmed the authenticity of the two exploits from the archive, released group The Shadow Brokers. We will remind, last week the hackers said that they managed to hack the system commands Equation Group, presumably related to the national security Agency of the United States. As evidence members of the Shadow Brokers have placed a fragment of the stolen data set (about 300 files) in the public domain, and the second part put up for sale, setting a price of 1 million bitcoins.

A manufacturer of telecommunications equipment Juniper Networks has also confirmed the performance of several exploits - FEEDTROUGH and ZESTYLEAK. According to the representative of the company Cholla derrick (Derrick Scholl), tools designed for the exploitation of vulnerabilities in firewalls Juniper NetScreen running ScreenS.

"In the course of these analysis [Equation Group] files, we found an exploit for a NetScreen device running ScreenOS. Currently, we inspect the extent of the attack, but preliminary analysis showed that it affects the operating system loader, but does not exploit a vulnerability in ScreenOS," Scholl said in an official statement.
