Default Season's gr3371ng5 - hacker releases exploits for MySQL and SSH


On Advent Sunday, the infamous hacker who goes by the name of KingCope appears to have had a stock clearance and released a whole range of exploits, some of which date back to 2011. The exploits released on 2 December mostly target the now-Oracle-owned MySQL open source database, but the SSH servers by SSH Communications Security and FreeSSHd/FreeFTPd are also at acute risk.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
