1. Authorities investigating massive security breach at Global Affairs Canada

Canadian authorities are investigating a prolonged data security breach following the “detection of malicious cyber activity” affecting the internal network used by Global Affairs Canada staff. The breach affected at least two internal drives, as well as emails, calendars and contacts of many staff members and working remotely was stopped as of last Wednesday. It’s not clear whether secret information was lost in the breach, which lasted longer than a month. It’s also not clear who was behind the breach.

2. Security alerts CVE-2023-46805 & CVE-2024-21887: Stormshield Products Response

Two new critical vulnerabilities impacting Ivanti Connect Secure (previously Pulse Connect Secure), identified as CVE-2023-46805 and CVE-2024-21887, are actively exploited. The CVE-2023-46805 allows an attacker to bypass authentication on the web server, while the CVE-2024-21887 allows an authenticated shell command injection. By combining these vulnerabilities, an attacker can achieve an unauthenticated remote code execution.
