Three Windows 8 exploits discovered

Posted on Wednesday, August 01 2012 @ 12:10:13 CEST by


VR Zone reports security firm Trend Micro has discovered three exploits in Windows 8. The bugs were discovered by Sung-Ting Tsai, who already discovered a memory corruption vulnerability in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview earlier this year. He then reported the problem to Microosft and soon after the vulnerability was patched.
Windows 8 is set to launch in about three months from today, and someone has already found three exploits. Sung-Ting Tsai of Trend Micro says that the three exploits are found in the kernel level advanced local procedure call, the component object model (COM) application programming interface, and the Windows Runtime API.

Tsai developed various methods for testing the exploits, and although he wasn’t able to fully attack the vulnerabilities, he mentioned that if a person put out enough time and effort into it they could find ways to compromise the system.
