Equation Group exploit hits newer Cisco ASA, Juniper Netscreen • The Register

Hungary-based security consultancy SilentSignal has ported a public exploit to newer models of Cisco's Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA).

The firm expanded the attack range of the ExtraBacon Cisco hack hole revealed as part of the Shadow Brokers cache of National Security Agency-linked exploits and tools.

The exploit was restricted to versions 8.4.(4) and earlier of ASA boxes and has now been expanded to 9.2.(4).

Cisco and Fortinet have confirmed their kit is affected by exploits listed in data cache which included some 300 files circulated online and confirmed stolen from the Equation Group, an entity considered the offensive Tailored Access Operations wing of the NSA.
