CVE-2022-0435 is a remote stack overflow in the Transparent Inter-Process Communication (TIPC) module of the Linux kernel. We’re basically able to send a payload of attacker-controlled size to the target, where it will be memcpy’d into a 272-byte buffer on the kernel’s stack—not a bad primitive, right?....

T-Mobile Actively Censoring Certain URLs:

And not just those URLs via SMS. They are also blocking CleanBrowsing DoH url - without ever replying or giving us a valid reason.




Another other protocol being actively used that I am missing? At least, only seeing those 3 on our honeypot logs:

Also some interesting obfuscation, I am assuming to bypass WAF and IDSs:


We are sharing jndi (log4j) attack logs here:

Might be useful to find variation of attacks and IPs abusing it.
