  • The BlueKeep situation gets murkier

    Posted on August 1st, 2019 at 06:39 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    There have been rumors for the past two weeks that there’s a working BlueKeep exploit on the darkweb. We’ve been fielding (and blocking) many posts on AskWoody claiming that the BlueKeep exploit is real and living in the ooze.

    Catalin Cimpanu (who, along with Kevin Beaumont, are my guiding lights on the topic) just posted a response to an inquiry from Kirsty:

    This is coming to a head because @zerosum0x0 now claims to have cracked the problem and handed all of his info over to Metasploit. If that’s true, and Metasploit publishes it (by no means a done deal, on either count), it could mean that we’re closer to a real, live BlueKeep worm.
