Operation PowerFall

Operation PowerFall used two zero-day exploits in Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer to carry out attacks against users of Windows 10. The flaws are due to how objects in memory are handled and successful exploitation could result in an elevation of privilege and arbitrary code execution. The DarkHotel threat group who has been in operation since at least 2014 and are also known as Fallout Team, APT-C-06, and DUBNIUM are suspected to be responsible for the campaign.
