Find out if your data has been exposed.

Database of Nickelodeon is Leaked

The SOCRadar Dark Web Team has discovered a data leak related to Nickelodeon. Allegedly, the leaked data contains around 500GB of files, including unseen content from popular shows like Sponge Bob and Danny Phantom. Nickelodeon has confirmed the leak, but some of the content may be from past years.

A New Article is Shared About Critical RCE Bug on Fortinet Devices

On July 6, a SOCRadar researcher detected a new article discussing a vulnerability in Fortinet’s FortiGate firewalls. The vulnerability, CVE-2023-27997, allows remote code execution and poses a significant risk. Despite an update by Fortinet to address the issue, 300,000 FortiGate firewalls remain vulnerable. 

The fact that the threat actor posted the article discussing the vulnerability in Fortinet’s FortiGate firewalls on a dark web forum raises significant concerns. This could lead to increased awareness among malicious actors, widespread dissemination of exploit details, increased exploit attempts, and potentially severe consequences for vulnerable systems. Organizations must prioritize patching and strengthening their defenses to minimize the risk of successful attacks.

A New Article is Shared About StackRot Vulnerability in Linux Kernel

SOCRadar Dark Web Team has detected a threat actor’s post on a dark web forum regarding a vulnerability.

It allows for kernel compromise and privilege escalation with minimal effort. The vulnerability’s impact on the kernel’s memory management subsystem, specifically in the maple tree structure, was disclosed by researcher Ruihan Li. The patch for the vulnerability became available on July 1, and full technical details and a PoC are expected to be revealed by the end of July.
