Multiple threat actors are weaponizing a design flaw in Foxit PDF Reader to deliver a variety of malware such as Agent Tesla, AsyncRAT, DCRat, NanoCore RAT, NjRAT, Pony, Remcos RAT, and XWorm.

"This exploit triggers security warnings that could deceive unsuspecting users into executing harmful commands," Check Point said in a technical report. "This exploit has been used by multiple threat actors, from e-crime to espionage."

It's worth noting that Adobe Acrobat Reader – which is more prevalent in sandboxes or antivirus solutions – is not susceptible to this specific exploit, thus contributing to the campaign's low detection rate.

Ukraine’s armed forces need more long-range weapons to be able to hit targets deep behind the frontline, Germany’s foreign minister has said, as Russia makes gains on the battlefield. 

Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting of European foreign ministers in Strasbourg, Annalena Baerbock described the military situation in north-east Ukraine as “highly dramatic” amid reports that Vladimir Putin’s forces are making significant advances of up to 10 kilometers in one place. 

She said it is important to provide weapons “that can be used over medium and long distances” — a remark likely to be seen as putting more pressure on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to supply Ukraine with long-range Taurus missiles. These weapons are more effective than counterparts supplied by Britain and France in targeting reinforced bunkers and bridges but Scholz has so far ruled out sending them to Kyiv.

The top prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague has requested arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and top Hamas leaders as the war in Gaza continues.

The requests, made by Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court Karim Khan, must be approved by the ICC's judges. Still, the announcement is a blow to Israel's prestige in general and specifically to Netanyahu's government.

Observers have speculated that the ICC might charge the Israeli government with obstructing the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza and responding excessively to Hamas' terror attack on Oct. 7, 2023.

An Israeli official speaking to The New York Times admitted that if the ICC issues any warrants, it would be seen as a “humbling moral rebuke” by a significant part of the international community. The possibility of the ICC taking such action has likely influenced the recent decision-making of the Israeli authorities.
