Microsoft Windows 8 introduced a change in how system-wide mandatory ASLR is implemented.

This change requires system-wide bottom-up ASLR to be enabled for mandatory ASLR to receive entropy.

Tools that enable system-wide ASLR without also setting bottom-up ASLR will fail to properly randomize executables that do not opt in to ASLR.
Microsoft Equation Editor contains a stack buffer overflow,which can allow a remote,unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.

In May 2017, Kaspersky Lab researchers discovered a forum post advertising ATM malware that was targeting specific vendor ATMs.

The forum contained a short description of a crimeware kit designed to empty ATMs with the help of a vendor specific API, without interacting with ATM users and their data.

The price of the kit was 5000 USD at the time of research.
The Infineon RSA library version 1.02.013 does not properly generate RSA key pairs,which may allow an attacker to recover the RSA private key corresponding to an RSA public key generated by this library.

This vulnerability is often cited asROCAin the media.
Wi-Fi Protected Access(WPA,more commonly WPA2)handshake traffic can be manipulated to induce nonce and session key reuse,resulting in key reinstallation by a wireless access point(AP)or client.

An attacker within range of an affected AP and client may leverage these vulnerabilities to conduct attacks that are dependent on the data confidentiality protocols being used.

Attacks may include arbitrary packet decryption and injection,TCP connection hijacking,HTTP content injection,or the replay of unicast and group-addressed frames.

These vulnerabilities are referred to as Key Reinstallation Attacks orKRACKattacks.
