Real-World Security Testing: Uncovering Vulnerabilities in Uninterrupted Power Supplies

Think your organization's security is rock-solid? It's time to put it to the real-world test! In this eye-opening video, we share a fascinating story of a security assessment that revealed some shocking vulnerabilities.

When a company claimed to have a secure environment, they decided to take it a step further and put their confidence to the test. They asked, "Are you sure you want this real-world?" And the answer was a resounding "Yes!"

The journey begins with reconnaissance, as we uncover the startling truth about a recent project where all of their data centers installed the same model of networked Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) without considering the consequences. The default passwords were left unchanged, and all units were network-capable, creating a ticking time bomb.

Watch as we detail how a carefully crafted script strategically shut down these UPS units, causing chaos and highlighting the importance of real-world security testing. Don't miss this riveting exploration of the vulnerabilities that can lurk in unexpected places, reminding us all of the need for thorough cybersecurity assessments.
