Weekly Intelligence Summary 29 January

January 29, 2021

A new web portal is aiding cyber-threat incident responders by detailing vulnerabilities in popular malware, but its existence is causing debate among security professionals. Although intelligence sharing within the cyber-security community is vital, some community members have valid concerns about the publication of malware details. These include a potential loss of valuable intelligence for researchers conducting secretive operations. In addition, the vulnerabilities’ details could benefit cyber-threat actors who are pursuing constant improvements to their malicious tools. The portal, created by bug bounty hunter John Page, has yet to become popular; if it evolves into a primary resource for network defenders, it will inevitably also benefit their adversaries.
