In the 2000 movie High Fidelity, the concept of making lists is a dominant focus. What are your top five favorite records? Top five side one, track ones? Top five dream jobs? In the movie, Rob Gordon, portrayed by John Cusack, decides to categorize his top five most memorable breakups in order to determine why his relationships keep going downhill. It’s inherent in our nature to create lists – they help us remember what to do and they bring some order to the overload of information we have to deal with on a daily basis. And if your lists are good enough, you might even become famous for them – like former TV talk show host David Letterman.
At Trend Micro, we like our lists too. This week, the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) released its own list, taking a look at the top five most interesting cases submitted to the program in 2017. The program has broken the 1,000 disclosed vulnerability mark, making 2017 the biggest year yet (with a few days left to go before the end of the year)! From integer underflows in Adobe Reader to virtual machine escapes, you can read the following blog series to see what ZDI deemed the most interesting cases of 2017:
There are three new zero-day filters from one vendor in this week’s Digital Vaccine (DV) package. A number of existing filters in this week’s DV package were modified to update the filter description, update specific filter deployment recommendation, increase filter accuracy and/or optimize performance. You can browse the list of published advisories and upcoming advisories on the Zero Day Initiative website. You can also follow the Zero Day Initiative on Twitter @thezdi and on their blog.
