Intel AMT Back in the News

The previous vulnerability was a wide-reaching privilege escalation vulnerability (INTEL-SA-00075, CVE-2017-5689). Now, AMT is in the news again this week, as another serious security issue has been di ...

Tracking Scan Authentication Failures
IT systems change all the time. New applications are added, configurations are changed, permissions get revised – the list goes on and on. In some cases, the changes end up restricting access to the system. For example, user accounts are removed, access is revoked, account credentials change or expire, leading to unexpected authentication failures and lockouts. And when the credentials fail, applications that depend on them fail, too. When the application that ends up failing is a vulnerab ...

According to the security advisory, Spectre breaks the isolation between different applications and allows an attacker to expose data once thought to be secure. Meltdown breaks the most fundamental isolation ...

Triton: What You Need to Know
What is Triton? Triton is a new malware framework targeting safety systems monitoring SCADA networks. It’s designed to run from within a compromised network, allowing the attacker to observe and control Triconex Safety Instrumented System (SIS) devices. The attackers copied a malicious file (trilog.exe) onto a management workstation, a Windows PC, and used that vantage point to attempt to write new firmware to the memory of SIS devices. Device firmware is designed to be updated remotely. A ...

Congress Achieves Real IT Modernization Progress
We’ve talked about the need for Congress to prioritize upgrading and modernizing government IT systems for a while now, so we were glad to see the Senate recently pass the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) with the Modernizing Government Technology (MGT) Act intact. The MGT Act (HR 2227), introduced by Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), was signed into law last Tuesday. Federal IT modernization is a critical component of strong government cybersecurity, and the necessity for this bill is ...

New Study: Many Consumers Lack Understanding of Basic Cyber Hygiene
Data breaches have been a headache for many years and for a long time there seemed to be a general apathy about them. Our sense was that things may have changed in the wake of the most severe breach ever – the theft of 145 million social security numbers and other sensitive data from Equifax – which leaves most Americans with the burden of having to monitor for identity theft for the rest of their lives. Against this backdrop, we decided to find out how aware Americans are of cyberse ...
