The security firm Black Hat has revealed the details of a new exploit that allows a computer to be exploited by a person to gain access to its passwords.
The exploit is based on the “Turtle Shell” malware, which has been known for years.
“Turtle shell” is a shell language which allows a hacker to write malicious code and then pass it onto a victim’s computer.
A user can use the exploit to bypass the password-cracking protection on a system.
It was first described in 2016, when it was discovered that hackers had used the exploit on a number of high-profile computers.
Black Hat researcher Jeremy Bailenson, who wrote the research paper, said the exploit could be used by hackers to steal passwords.
“We have found that an exploit developed by a cybercriminal can be used to exploit a vulnerability in an existing computer in order to steal a user’s passwords,” Bailanson said.
“The hacker can then write malicious files to the victim’s system to cause the victim to be unable to log in.”
The exploit can be executed using a Windows command prompt, Mac OS X, or Linux.
Black Hats researchers have now published a detailed attack surface which outlines the process of obtaining the user’s password.
“For a limited time, this exploit can decrypt the target’s password with a hash of their user password and then decrypt the hash with their password.
The victim is then required to input the victim account’s login credentials in order for the attack to succeed,” the Black Hat researchers write.”
In order to be able to decrypt the hashes, the hacker has to run the attacker’s script which must then be executed.
The attacker can then run the script and the hashes are encrypted by the script.”
When the script is executed, the hashes of the hashes from the victim accounts are used to decrypt a new victim account and then the victim is required to run an update to decrypt those hashes.
“Black Hat says the exploit is able to bypass a number security measures.”
Although this exploit only works on Windows, this vulnerability can be exploited on any operating system that supports a hash-based password hashing scheme,” the researchers write in the Black House paper.”
This allows for a large amount of information to be stolen from the user.
“The researchers also highlight that the exploit has the potential to compromise multiple users.”
Our research shows that a remote compromise can be made with this exploit, but it also shows that the vulnerability is not restricted to just the user account of a user,” the paper says.”
As an example, the attacker can also use the same exploit to compromise a remote system, or a group of users, or even a corporate network, and the results could be very different.
“BlackHat researchers have released a list of recommendations to prevent any future attacks.”
There are no easy solutions for this vulnerability, so the best advice we can give is to use strong passwords,” the team said.
