Swap & Evolve

Yesterday, SafeMoon Tweeted, "As part of our rollout, we have completed the final stages of our pre-flight checks on Swap and Evolve.

That means the #SAFEMOONARMY got an extra S&E ahead of time! 🥳

The one that you've been tracking will continue as planned as well! ❤️🔥

Happy Tuesday! #SAFEMOON 🙌"


Crypto Yoda Tweeted when the first S&E was executed! "Let's build that liquidity ;-)" Swap and Evolve purchased 23,941,208 SFM for $21,131!


SafeMoonBot, created by the wonderful Danny, let us know that SafeMoon's second S&E was executed! For more updates on changes with the SafeMoon Swap and SafeMoon Twitter, follow @SafeMoonNewsBot!


The second S&E execution purchased 24,007,469 SFM which was worth $21,056.


A community member asked, "Where is this purchase going?" in which Galan answered, "Into the liquidity pool. This is the sole purpose of S&E - to perform the auto generating liquidity function in a steady and positive fashion, rather than having a large sell of SafeMoon to collect the bnb necessary for the LP pairing."


Glubiz Site

Yesterday, SafeMoon retweeted a post by Glubiz wondering if it would help increase traffic on his site. Today he updated us with, "Did the @safemoon retweet help create more traffic to the site? 👀God yes! We are cruising at almost 700k page loads the past 24 hours 😅This community is wild!🙏 P.S Luckily the site haven’t had major issues (yet) 😂🚀"


Utah Meetup

"Some of my favorite pics from #CryptopiaSLC-May. My only regret is that I didn’t take more pictures with everyone there. Rnd 2 in October?"

"Best weekend ever! #SAFEMOON Name this photo….. 🤣🤣🤣"

Progress

Vico noticed that SafeMoon had changed their Twitter account to say "Prepping More Progress!" "Welcome lovely June! 📅The next 4 weeks will be fun and exciting. Only 4 weeks left in Q2. 🙌"


Microsoft Word Exploit "Follina"

Wallet Guard Tweeted a critical alert regarding a severe 0-day vulnerability called Follina.


🚨CRITICAL ALERT A severe 0-day vulnerability called #Follina has been exposed (since May 27th) in MS Word Documents. It could allow hackers to take full control of your computer, in some cases WITHOUT even opening the file. 1/ This exploit is a mountain of exploits stacked on top of eachother. However, it is unfortunately easy to re-create and cannot be detected by anti-virus. Strap in as we try to explain. 2/ The 0-day starts with a feature in MS Word called Templates. This feature allows Word to load and execute HTML and JS from external sources. Sound concerning? Don’t worry it gets way worse. 3/ Using the Template’s HTML and Javascript the payload then runs the following Powershell command to run a service called Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool, or MSDT.

4/ MSDT is used by Microsoft Support to help debug issues with your operating system. MSDT also conveniently allows for remote access to your computer. (similar to TeamViewer)


5/ There’s just one problem. MSDT normally requires the user to input their password to run it. But MSDT has a buffer overflow vulnerability. So the hacker can bypass password protection entirely.

6/ (If this exploit happens to you and you ran Word as Administrator, wipe that machine. It's beyond saving) 7/ Wanna know how it becomes a “0-click” exploit? .rtf file previews execute the malicious code just by downloading the file and simply VIEWING it in the file explorer.

8/ Previously, the advice for malicious Word docs was to never click Enable Content. With this Templates exploit, ANY Word Doc can be INSTANTLY malicious from the second you open it. 9/ Why should web3 care? Exploits like these are why it is CRITICALLY important not to store private keys in plain text on your file system. Second, we’ve seen similar attacks work in the past, and this exploit is even more serious as a "0-click" exploit. 10/ The @arthur_0x attack displayed many similarities to this attack, detailed in our thread. 11/ The real world threat of this attack is that all .doc, .docx, and .rtf files need to be considered VULNERABLE at this point in time. This especially applies to VCs for example. Again, this exploit allows for remote code execution so it is very serious. 12/ Our recommendations:

- Discontinue use of Word for the time being

- Utilize Google Docs

- Disable MSDT (see next tweets)

- Utilize PDF instead of vulnerable extension types

13/ Microsoft’s “Workarounds”: Microsoft is currently REFUSING to fix this 0-day and seem reluctant to even call it that. (even though it absolutely is).
