ClockWatch Service – A Vulnerability in the Latest Version of the Service
A vulnerability in the latest version of the enterprise version of the ClockWatch service has been confirmed. The current version of ClockWatch has been updated by the vendor with a vulnerability that could allow an authenticated user to create a persistent, local, modified image of a file.
The service, currently in a pre-release version, is a simple solution to reduce the risk of lost important data. The ClockWatch service is used to backup files and folders from Windows systems. Unfortunately, the vulnerability, which can be exploited by an attacker who can create a modified file from a local system, has been confirmed by the vendor.
According to the vendor, by creating a local image, the user will have a persistent, modified, and unencrypted version of local file. This would allow an attacker to execute further malicious code or modify the local file. In addition, the service is being tested by the vendor. The company has released a patch for this kind of issue.
The clockwatch service is currently not available for the Windows 10 version. The company states that ClockWatch 2. 0 is available for Windows 7 and Windows 8. The company has an update available for Windows 8.

In the meantime, the company has released an update for the ClockWatch service, which includes the latest version of the service. You can download it from Microsoft here.
In January 2012, when Windows 8. 1 was released, Microsoft released a service which was designed to address this kind of vulnerability. But the issue has never been resolved and the company has released a new version. Now, with the ClockWatch service, Microsoft is trying to fix the vulnerability in the latest version of the service.
Discovery of a remote code execution vulnerability in the Enterprise Time Syncuring Software of Beagle Software
The Federal Government is investigating whether an enterprise software programme developed by the Defence Department’s Enterprise Time Syncuring Technology Assessment Programme (ETSAT) could have vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the wild to allow remote code execution.
The Government does not believe that there are any immediate security concerns in this particular case, but remains concerned that certain vulnerabilities could exist in any enterprise time syncuring application. Such vulnerabilities could allow malicious code to be run, potentially at the scale of the Australian Defence Force or the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
In order to reduce the potential risk, Defence is continuing to examine the vulnerability to determine if it has already occurred, or already resulted in a serious security issue. This assessment will be conducted through the ETSAT programme.
While Defence is unable to confirm if the vulnerability is present, it is investigating this issue internally and has asked affected organisations to begin testing their products to confirm that the vulnerability is present. Defence has asked for anyone else affected by this vulnerability to contact Defence directly.
The Defence Department’s Risk Governance Board, which provides support to Defence staff, was notified of the vulnerability and has conducted a risk assessment of the vulnerability. Defence has provided notification for a security auditor to conduct an assessment independent of the risk assessment.
The Defence Department will not be recommending, promoting or accepting vulnerability in this instance, and Defence will continue to work closely with affected organisations to ensure they are informed of all events and to ensure they take appropriate steps to mitigate any risk. Defence will continue to make recommendations to affected enterprises on how to protect themselves from the risk of this issue. Defence has therefore asked that enterprises have up to four months to take any preventative steps to ensure their systems are secure prior to an official audit.
This vulnerability was discovered late last week and fixed as of Thursday, 31 August 2013. Defence will continue to monitor and investigate any further issues.
A Defence Department software development team is investigating an issue where a remote code execution vulnerability has been reported within the Enterprise Time Syncuring Software of Beagle Software.

That’s the conclusion of our analysis of the BeagleNet vulnerability. BeagleNet is an OpenBSD network vulnerability discovered in July 2007 by an anonymous researcher who posted the vulnerability details in the public domain on a public mailing list.
We believe that the vulnerability in the BeagleNet implementation was an intentional and serious security hole in OpenBSD’s networking stack, and our researchers found it in the BeagleNet, “NFS_Trap.
We’ve included the full vulnerability report as an appendix to this post.
BeagleNet is an OpenBSD network vulnerability, affecting FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD. The vulnerability is in the NFS_Trap implementation that was targeted by the researchers behind the BeagleNet project, and their exploitation methods were targeted at the most vulnerable version of NFS_Trap in use, “NFS_Trap.
The BeagleNet project was founded in 2005 by James “Bobby” Miller and Alexey V. In February 2007, Miller posted a report and exploits he developed against the vulnerability. In addition, he gave a talk at a Linux conference dedicated to the subject, discussing his findings and the exploit methods he developed.
The BeagleNet researchers are a team of researchers from different organizations.
Jim Miller – the creator of the BeagleNet project.
Solovyev – the project’s lead developer.
The BeagleNet project was founded in 2005 by Miller and Solovyev. By the beginning of 2007, the vulnerability had been discovered and posted as a bug at bgp. In May 2007, Miller and Solovyev appeared at LinuxCon USA and provided details about the vulnerability and their methods of exploitation. The conference ended up with a vote to extend the BeagleNet project until June 2008.

As I sit at my desk in my home office—writing this article from a very different perspective, from a totally different location—I can barely believe my luck. It was a cold January morning in Denver, Colorado, a city I’d never been in or even heard of before. The first thing my wife (Catherine) had done was call the metro police department and warn them that I was a “potential threat” because someone had been asking me for a ride home from work. So, I had to get out of the house in a hurry.
I’d been working full-time at my job for over a year, and I’d been making a good bit of money, but now it seemed like I had to move on. I had been considering an out-of-work driver’s license after I was laid off from my job as a senior network administrator at a security consulting firm, and I’d been looking for long-term insurance until the day my wife called about the ride-sharing app I was currently riding around on.
I’ve had a number of jobs, but I had never driven and never had to drive. The day I got the call I had to pack and leave for a place close to home. After leaving my house in the snow and having to cross six different streets in the snow, I finally got to the place I needed to be—a hotel with a large, heated indoor pool. I’d never had a paid day off in my life before now, and it was definitely going to be a paying day, both financially and emotionally.
My wife and I called a few sources that I knew to find out what we needed to do to get out of the city, and the biggest source we called was the Denver police department. The police station had a lot of cars out on the street, so it was easy to find a taxi to take us the remaining distance of a mile and a half.
My wife and I headed over to the police station to make our calls, and, on the way, I took another look at the snowy, cold streets I’d just driven through.
