The Call Is Coming from Inside the House: CrowdStrike Identifies Novel Exploit in VOIP Appliance

CrowdStrike Services recently investigated a suspected ransomware intrusion attempt. The intrusion was quickly stopped through the customer’s efforts and those of the CrowdStrike Falcon Complete™ managed detection and response (MDR) team, which was supporting this customer’s environment.

What's Next for Log4j? Tales From the Trenches Panel

The recently discovered flaw in Apache’s Log4j software continues to stress security teams and put many organizations at risk. Because Log4j is very difficult to detect, many scanners may not detect it. Rezilion researchers conducted a survey using multiple open source and commercial scanning tools and assessed the tools against a dataset of packaged Java files where Log4j was nested and packaged in various formats. While no scanner was able to detect Log4j in all formats initially, several scanner makers were quick to respond and update their technology to find the bug.

Developer empowerment for software security with Snyk IDE plugins

For application security, the shift left strategy is something that every enterprise is embracing today, which essentially means putting the security controls in earlier stages of development. This is more like a “nipping the problem in the bud” strategy where the security controls in their respective domains highlight the potential security weaknesses related to vulnerabilities in code, vulnerabilities in third-party packages and code quality issues.

OT:ICEFALL: 56 Vulnerabilities Caused by Insecure-by-Design Practices in OT

It has been 10 years since Project Basecamp, a research project conducted by Digital Bond that investigated how critical operational technology (OT) devices and protocols were, to use the term they coined, “insecure by design.” Since then, we have seen hugely impactful real-world OT malware such as Industroyer, TRITON, Industroyer2 and INCONTROLLER abusing insecure-by-design functionality.

CVE-2021-43702 from Discovery to Patch: ASUS Modem/Router Device Takeover Vulnerability

While studying for my master's degree in cyber security, I co-authored a paper regarding the rollout of IoT devices and the security considerations that businesses need to address to ensure these devices are secure. The paper underscored how a large majority of IoT devices used vulnerable components and did not follow basic secure programming principles.

Announcing the 2022 State of Open Source Security report from Snyk and the Linux Foundation

Open source software is a key component in modern applications. It has created a new era in software development, promoting a free exchange of ideas within the developer community and enabling developers to build more functional software, faster than ever. Based on most estimates, 70-90% of any piece of modern software includes open source code.
