Microsoft Identifies Austrian Firm Exploiting Windows and Adobe Zero-Days


Microsoft’s malware researchers have discovered an Austrian hack-for-hire firm using Windows and Adobe software vulnerabilities in “limited and focused assaults” targeting users in Europe and Central America.

The business, DSIRF, has been connected to a malware family known as “Subzero” that has been spread over the previous two years via zero-day vulnerabilities in Windows and Adobe’s popular Reader programme.

In this month’s batch of patches, Microsoft addressed the issue, and it is advising Windows fleet administrators to “expedite deployment of the July 2022 Microsoft security updates” in order to defend their systems from attacks employing the CVE-2022-22047 access point.
