@RISK provides a reliable weekly summary of (1) newly discovered attack vectors, (2) vulnerabilities with active new exploits, (3) insightful explanations of how recent attacks worked, and other valuable data
A key purpose of the @RISK is to provide the data that will ensure that the 20 Critical Controls (the US and UK benchmark for effective protection of networked systems) continue to be the most effective defenses for all known attack vectors. But since it is also valuable for security practitioners, SANS is making it available to the 145,000 security practitioners who have completed SANS security training and others at their organizations who hope to stay current with the offensive methods in use.April 17, 2014

NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES
SELECTED BY THE SOURCEFIRE VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM
Title: Bundled OpenSSL Library Also Makes Apps and Android 4.1.1
Vulnerable to Heartbleed
Description: TrendLabs discovered that Android version 4.1.1 is vulnerable to Heartbleed, because the vulnerable version of OpenSSL is bundled with the OS and some android applications.
SID: 30510-30517, 30520-30525
Title: Hardware Giant LaCie Acknowledges Year-Long Credit Card Breach
Description: Computer hard drive maker LaCie has acknowledged that a hacker break-in at its online store exposed credit card numbers and contact information on customers for the better part of the past year. The disclosure comes almost a month after the breach was first disclosed by KrebsOnSecurity
Title: iSEC Completes TrueCrypt Audit
Description: iSEC Partners kicked off the engagement to audit the following portions of TrueCrypt: the Windows kernel code, the bootloader, the filesystem driver, and the areas around this code. The scope was kept narrowly focused to avoid stretching resources too thin and ensure that the review conducted was thorough and robust.

RECENT VULNERABILITIES FOR WHICH EXPLOITS ARE AVAILABLE
COMPILED BY THE QUALYS VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM.
This is a list of recent vulnerabilities for which exploits are available. System administrators can use this list to help in prioritization of their remediation activities. The Qualys Vulnerability Research Team compiles this information based on various exploit frameworks, exploit databases, exploit kits and monitoring of internet activity.
Title: OpenSSL TLS Heartbeat Extension Buffer Oveflow Information
Disclosure Vulnerability (Heartbleed)
Vendor: OpenSSL Project
Description: The (1) TLS and (2) DTLS implementations in OpenSSL 1.0.1 before 1.0.1g do not properly handle Heartbeart Extension packets, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory via crafted packets that trigger a buffer over-read, as demonstrated by reading private keys, related to d1_both.c and t1_lib.c.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
Title: Sophos Web Protection Appliance Interface Authenticated
Arbitrary Command Execution
Description: The network interface configuration page (netinterface) in Sophos Web Appliance before 3.8.2 allows remote administrators to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the address parameter.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 8.5 (AV:N/AC:M/AU:S/C:C/I:C/A:C)
Title: JIRA Issues Collector Directory Traversal
