HVE-BC1750-0001: Deceptive Information Disclosure Vulnerability in Human Interaction ProtocolsRead time in minutes: 4
In this report, we describe a discovered remote code execution vulnerability in neural language processing systems. These systems, currently in active use by major social media networks including but not limited to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, allow for the crafting of a carefully selected message that allows successful attackers to gain control over the target victim.
We have demonstrated evidence of this proposed attack to be currently in active use, and be unpatched in current implementations. Additionally, we have found evidence this attack has been employed successfully in the past, affecting a copper ore processing facility's communication sytems.
This technique is known to be wormable, with common cases causing spread across networks and social groups. This geometric spread can lead to arbitrary philsophical execution on target systems, which will result in denial of service in all cases.
The vulnerability arises from the intentional distortion of messages, deviating from the expected interaction protocol. It can be classified, partially, as a social engineering attack, whereby an individual purposefully distorts ground truths, fabricating false protocol axioms, to manipulate the perceptions of targets.
As the vulnerability lies within human interaction protocols, rather than vulnerable systems, it can be classified as a supply chain issue. As patching the vulnerable dependency is, as of right now, infeasible, and potentially undesirable, software developers, social media platforms, and communication service providers can implement user interfaces and algorithms that alleviate the unpatched vulnerability, until a proper fix can be implemented.
Nnaki Systems (the vendor of the vulnerable components of the human instrument) has not yet released a patch to the to rectify this vulnerability, with their CEO Anu claiming that this is "an intentional feature" and releasing the following statement to shareholders:

Users are advised to take reasonable action to protect their systems from these specially crafted messages and prevent spreading expoit messages to others. It may be advisable to delete social media applications such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Threads to avoid being exploited.
This report would be impossible without the efforts of Layl Bongers. Many thanks to her alerting us at Sovereign Integral Solutions so that we can issue this bulliten to allow users to be protected against this glaring flaw.
