#1682 Microsoft patches zero-day disclosed by Google
Microsoft followed through and today patched a zero day vulnerability being exploited in public attacks that was publicly disclosed by Google researchers nine days ago.

The victims have yet to have been identified, but Microsoft did accuse the Sofacy APT gang of carrying out the attacks. Sofacy is generally thought to have ties to Russian military intelligence and its targets are strategic, such as government and diplomatic agencies, military and defense contractors, and public policy think-tanks.

Google’s disclosure on Oct. 31 came 10 days after it privately reported the vulnerability to Microsoft, along with a Flash zero day to Adobe also used in these attacks.
