Software Guard Extensions (SGX), Intel’s trademark technology that protects application data from being misused, was hit with a new vulnerability recently. Known as CVE-2018-18098, the security issue concerns admin privileges that can be manipulated by threat actors such as malware.
Security researcher SaifAllah benMassaoud discovered this vulnerability. He explained that the flaw can be exploited using a .bat file inserted as an attachment in an email. When the user downloads and runs this file, it can tweak and manipulate admin privileges on the user’s machine.
The Register also connoted that the vulnerability may be because of the SGX software itself. “The problem lies not within the processor's SGX hardware, though, but in the software layer above it. When enclave code is installed by a normal user on a Windows system, it is possible to hijack the installer, via a process injection attack, to gain admin rights on the box.” Enclaves form the protected areas for processes to store critical application data. Feeding malicious code into these areas can alter the way the software is intended to run. In the case of CVE-2018-18098 vulnerability, it leads to an escalation of admin privileges and information disclosure to threat actors.

I primarily use @adskeagle at work for designing PCBs. This tool has come a long way since I started using it about 15 years ago.
All of Particle’s hardware (which is open source) is designed on it. If you are eager to learn, they also have a student version available.
I see that KiCAD is becoming a popular tool amongst the open source community. I’ll have to give it a try soon. What has been your experience?
Out of ideas for Valentine’s Day?
You’re welcome! 😉
