GitHub Actions has made it easier than ever to build a secure continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline for your GitHub projects. By integrating your CI/CD pipeline and GitHub repository, GitHub Actions allows you to automate your build, test, and deployment pipeline. You can create workflows that build and test every pull request to your repository or deploy merged pull requests to production.
Every day, your users access dozens of documents they need to do their jobs. However, many users fail to take basic steps to protect sensitive documents from leaving the organization. In sports, when a team loses the ball out of bounds, they have to go on defense. The same thing happens in business when you lose critical documents.
In this extensive two-part blog series, we try to present an exhaustive list of all the HALOCAD data-centric use cases that offer better and more advanced CAD data protection. Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is used to accomplish preliminary design and layouts, design details, and calculations, creating 3D Models, creating and releasing drawings, as well as interfacing with analysis, marketing, manufacturing, and end-user personnel.
As we celebrate the first anniversary of Rapid Scan Static, we look back at the growth of our new SAST engine. In June 2021, Synopsys officially released Rapid Scan Static, a feature of Code Sight™ SE and Coverity® by Synopsys and powered by the Sigma scan engine. Rapid Scan Static reduces the noise and friction for developers by providing fast results that enable them to take action earlier in the software development life cycle (SDLC).
In April 2022, Netskope Threat Labs analyzed an Emotet campaign that was using LNK files instead of Microsoft Office documents, likely as a response to the protections launched by Microsoft in 2022 to mitigate attacks via Excel 4.0 (XLM) and VBA macros.
Network security is of the utmost importance when it comes to protecting servers. An organization's servers contains a lot of sensitive data (e.g., clients’ personal data) that can greatly harm your business in the blink of an eye if compromised. One of the most common yet often undetectable ways the security of your servers can be compromised is cache poisoning. It is crucial to be aware of what cache poisoning is, how it works, why it is so dangerous, and how you can prevent becoming a victim.
Data leaks are a popular attack vector for cybercriminals. They’re considered a shortcut to accessing valuable sensitive data without needing to carry out sophisticated cyber attacks. Once an attacker discovers a data leak, they can exploit it immediately. Organizations must be vigilant against internal and third-party data leaks. Otherwise, they risk leaving an instant pathway to costly data breaches exposed.
With all the remote works, online businesses, and digital lifestyle, applications (software) have become an integral part of our lives. In contrast, the growing rate of data breaches and cyber-attacks exploiting minor glitches in application functionality has diverted attention to application security which is still underrated in the era of phenomenal technological advancement.
Internal Reconnaissance, step one of the Cyber Kill Chain, is the process of collecting internal information about a target network to identify vulnerabilities that can potentially be exploited. Threat actors use the information gained from this activity to decide the most effective way to compromise the target network. Vulnerable services can be exploited by threat actors and potentially lead to a network breach. A network breach puts the company in the hands of cybercriminals.
