HP TippingPoint DVLabs Signature Response - PacSec West 2013: Mobile Pwn2Own

It’s that special time of year again, when a barrage of hackers descend on Tokyo for PacSec West, and more specifically the mobile Pwn2Own competition hosted by HP’s own Zero Day Initiative.  DV Labs has always had a presence at the contest; however, this year we wanted to push the level of response and security coverage to a new high, writing and testing filters within hours of each phone being successfully exploited.  Currently, these filters are undergoing rigorous testing and quality assurance, and will be released in our upcoming weekly Digital Vaccine package (likely Tuesday, 11/19).  The contest was again a rousing success, with the iPhone 5, Galaxy S4, and Nexus 4 all falling victim to zero day exploits from a number of international contestants.  Please contact TippingPoint DV Labs with any telemetry information if the following filters fire in your deployment:


13362: ZDI-CAN-2050

13363: ZDI-CAN-2051

13364: ZDI-CAN-2052

13365: ZDI-CAN-2053


Additionally, we’ll be releasing updates to these filters for expanded coverage in the following weeks.  To read more about the contest details, a number of blog posts are available for perusal below.
