This week, ESET research described how the Winter Vivern APT group has been exploiting a zero-day XSS vulnerability in Roundcube Webmail servers to target European governmental entities and a think tank. ESET researchers uncovered the attacks on October 11th while monitoring Winter Vivern’s cyberespionage operations, which typically take aim at governments in Europe and Central Asia. They promptly reported the security loophole to the Roundcube team on October 12th, who released security updates for the vulnerability four days later.
