Two Cisco Zero-Day Vulnerabilities Get Exploited by State-Sponsored Hackers for Espionage

The cybersecurity report has highlighted two highly critical zero-day vulnerabilities in Cisco networking gear. Threat actors have exploited these vulnerabilities to deliver custom malware and facilitate data exfiltration in a new and sophisticated malware campaign. These vulnerabilities are listed below:

CVE-2024-20353 with a CVSS core 8.6. It is a Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance and Firepower Threat Defense Software Web Services Denial-of-Service Vulnerability, and CVE-2024-20359 with a CVSS score of 6.0, which is a Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance and Firepower Threat Defense Software Persistent Local Code Execution Vulnerability.

According to a statement by Talos, “UAT4356 deployed two backdoors as components of this campaign, ‘Line Runner’ and ‘Line Dancer,’ which were used collectively to conduct malicious actions on-target, which included configuration modification, reconnaissance, network traffic capture/exfiltration and potentially lateral movement.” It is worth noting that Cisco Talos, which dubbed the activity ArcaneDoor, linked the situation to UAT4356 (aka Storm-1849 by Microsoft), a state-sponsored actor.
