Core Impact logo In this new 2014 R1.2 release version we have added more than 20 updates including highlights like:

  • a module that checks for the Heartbleed bug and dumps portions of the target's process memory
  • a new way for installing agents in Windows that does not require creating a service (something that is detected by antiviruses) by means of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) API
  • a remote exploit for a SCADA software system (Schneider Electric Serial Modbus Driver)
  • additional remote exploits for Oracle TNS Listener, HP Data Protector and EMC Data Protection Advisor
  • 7 Client-side exploits for applications such as Adobe Flash Player (3 different ones!), VLC and Microsoft Word
  • 2 Local exploits for Oracle VirtualBox, one of them allowing to escape to the host OS
  • 2 DoS for Windows and 1 for Linux
  • Other updates including improvements to the AV shell and the use of a mutable decoder during the second stage for agent deployment which reduces the chances for the agent to be detected by an antivirus/IDS/IPS
