Datadog on the Lifecycle of Threats and Vulnerabilities

The security industry is full of complex terminology like threat, vulnerability, and mitigations. Definitions matter as we design processes that scale. At Datadog, the Security Research functions are focused on detection and response to specific types of threats and vulnerabilities. Workload vulnerabilities, cloud control plane vulnerabilities, and even cloud service provider vulnerabilities. Each security finding based on specific risk indicators needs to be addressed differently at Datadog and in our communications to the broader community.

Multiple Critical Vulnerabilities in VMware vRealize Log Insight

On Tuesday, January 24th, 2023, VMware disclosed two critical vulnerabilities in VMware vRealize Log Insight that could result in remote code execution (RCE). Although different vulnerability types, both vulnerabilities could allow an unauthenticated threat actor to inject files into the operating system of the vulnerable product which could result in RCE. Both vulnerabilities were responsibly disclosed to VMware and have not been actively exploited in campaigns.



Content KSMBD, as defined by the kernel documentation1, is a linux kernel server which implements SMB3 protocol in kernel space for sharing files over network. It was introduced in kernel version ‘v5.15-rc1’ so it’s still relatively new. Most distributions do not have KSMBD compiled into the kernel or enabled by default. Recently, another vulnerability (ZDI-22-16902) was discovered in KSMBD, which allowed for unauthenticated remote code execution in the kernel context.


Snyk enhances ServiceNow with comprehensive insights into vulnerabilities in open source software

We’re excited to announce a new partnership to bring Snyk security insights to ServiceNow workflows. The integration between Snyk Open Source and ServiceNow Application Vulnerability Response, the first of its kind, gives application security teams visibility into vulnerabilities in open source dependencies to provide a complete view of an organization’s application security posture.

OpenAI (ChatGPT) Vulnerability Remediation Concept Work

OpenAI is an artificial intelligence research laboratory that surprised the world with ChatGPT. It was founded in San Francisco in late 2015 by Sam Altman and Elon Musk, and many others. ChatGPT grabbed 1M people's attention in the first six days, and unbelievable AI & Human conversations screenshots are still getting shared. We couldn't resist more to see how OpenAI can help developers and application security teams by sharing remediation guidance. Many application security teams manage millions of security issues on Kondukto, which would eventually save them hundreds of hours.


Prioritizing open source vulnerabilities in software due diligence

Black Duck Security Advisories provide actionable advice and details about open source vulnerabilities to help you improve your remediation activities. A vulnerability is a software bug that hackers can exploit to attack an application. Ideally, software is written so as to proactively thwart the efforts of bad actors, but that is often not the case.


OWASP Top 10: Broken access control

Listed as #1 on the OWASP Top 10 list, broken access control is when an attacker can gain unauthorized access to restricted information or systems. Access control ensures that people can only gain access to things they’re supposed to have access to. When access control is broken, an attacker can obtain unauthorized access to information or systems that can put an organization at risk of a data breach or system compromise.
