State-sponsored actors from Russia and China are leveraging several of the same publicly known vulnerabilities in their attacks, all of which have patches available.

On October 20, the National Security Agency (NSA) published a detailed security advisory to inform defenders about Chinese state-sponsored "cyber actors" exploiting known vulnerabilities. The advisory is meant to help network defenders prioritize patching and mitigation efforts and further specifies that internet-facing assets like remote access tools and external web services are key targets for threat actors.

Two days later, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published a joint cybersecurity advisory with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) about Russian state-sponsored advanced persistent threat (APT) actors leveraging five publicly known vulnerabilities in attacks. Three of the five vulnerabilities listed in this advisory were also in the NSA alert.

While the NSA alert focused primarily on National Security Systems, it ends with a broader warning, "Due to the various systems and networks that could be impacted by the information in this product [the NSA alert] outside of these sectors, NSA recommends that the CVEs above be prioritized for action by all network defenders."

Many of the vulnerabilities in these advisories align with similar alerts that have been published by CISA over the last year and all of the vulnerabilities listed have patches available.

Prior Advisories

This is the latest in a series of alerts this year from government agencies warning about threat actors leveraging known vulnerabilities with patches available. Two of the vulnerabilities listed in the NSA alert, CVE-2020-19781 and CVE-2019-11510, were identified as some of the most exploited vulnerabilities in 2020 in the CISA Top 10 Routinely Exploited Vulnerabilities alert. Earlier in October, CISA partnered with the FBI on a joint advisory regarding APT activity leveraging several known vulnerabilities, including CVE-2020-1472 "Zerologon." Several of the vulnerabilities listed in that joint advisory are also included in the latest NSA alert.

Patching and Mitigation

The NSA lists six steps for general mitigation in its alert. First on the list is timely patching and updating:

  • Keep systems and products updated and patched as soon as possible after patches are released.
  • Expect that data stolen or modified (including credentials, accounts, and software) before the device was patched will not be alleviated by patching, making password changes and reviews of accounts a good practice.
  • Disable external management capabilities and set up an out-of-band management network.
  • Block obsolete or unused protocols at the network edge and disable them in device configurations.
  • Isolate internet-facing services in a network Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to reduce the exposure of the internal network.
  • Enable robust logging of internet-facing services and monitor the logs for signs of compromise.

This series of warnings from government agencies should sufficiently underscore the importance of quickly and completely patching these vulnerabilities. Threat actors of various skill levels are actively exploiting these flaws in attacks against diverse targets and will continue to do so as long as targets have not applied the available patches for their respective devices.
