CSAM Security Issues – Apple’s Security Patch for iOS 11
Apple was recently accused of stalling an auto-scan by CSAM that they used to verify the security of their devices. The accusation has been made by a security expert and a member of CSAM. I will explain what happened and hopefully put the situation in perspective.
The incident arose after Apple submitted their security patch for iOS 11.
Thanks for your feedback. During the investigation of the security issue we are aware of, we will continue to take action to update our software and prevent future attacks.
Apple’s statement has led some to believe that Apple has not acknowledged the issue, although they have. I will explain why I believe Apple has ignored this, and explain why it is so important that CSAM considers this issue.
Please read my prior article on this subject and consider the importance of the issue.
Apple’s latest iOS 11. 3 update has brought some improvements to the security of their devices. This update should be in the wild already and many have already been updated to it. I also received mine. Apple claims to have updated their security patch for iOS 11. 3 and for Macs. I have not checked the results of Apple’s auto-scan before to know how many devices have received this update and to what extent is this auto-scan affected.
The reason why Apple is telling us they are going to update their security patch for their devices, is because they have said they will. This is the first public acknowledgement that Apple has acknowledged the security issues.
While it is possible that Apple may not have updated the auto-scan as well as they should as the number of device that received the update may be too low, I suspect that some of the devices that have already received this update are already at risk of exploitation. These include devices that are part of the CSAM network.
In addition to acknowledging that the auto-scan has happened, Apple has yet to put an end to the issue as they have said they will do.

Help with powershell to bash the reverse shell
The reverse shell (Rsh) can be used to send commands to the Windows command shell (CSl), or alternatively to the shell that performs input/output. It can allow remote access to the computer system that is running the operating system. It supports input by remote programs running in Windows, and also input from a command line. For example, from bash (the shell used by most shell scripts) one can run the following command as a command-line command, to be executed by the “run” command using runas command: cd /d C:\Downloads/ [something] [another file on the remote computer] The problem is that the reverse shell can only send commands to the CSl. And running the commands in the reverse shell does not give the shell that performs input/output the opportunity to see that the commands are complete (or errors occurred). The reverse shell does not allow the shell that performs input/output to see commands executed in a remote machine. Also, the reverse shell cannot be used to send input to a remote computer if the remote computer has a command line protocol (Carpet, telnet, etc) running. There are two ways to do this: 1) you can run the commands in a new Windows command shell, and 2) you can use the Windows batch file “cmd”, or a cmd script, to run the commands as a batch file rather than as a command-line. When running a command in the reverse shell as a batch file, the command line should be interpreted in a specific command interpreter (cmd /x) so that it can display the output. You can only do this on a machine running Windows for that purpose, or by sending the commands to the running Windows command shell using command-shell.

A few questions about CVE-2021-34527.
“Who manages the list of CVEs”, “In general, who manages the list of CVE-IDs, the list of CVEs that are open, or the list of CVEs that are published?” A few questions about CVEs, and related CVE definitions, were discussed in the recent “What is a CVE? What is a CVE-ID? What is a CVE-ID?” thread on reddit.
This thread includes a comment from an unknown person discussing the CVE-2021-34527 post “The list of CVEs is managed by a third party (CWE).
The CWE is a CWE. It is not a “third party”, and there is no such thing. The CWE is a CWE that has been hired to manage the CVE List. The list of CVEs is managed by a third party. Who is that third party? It is a (very) small company called “CWE”, owned by a very large corporation.
