Last Day to Save $400 on 4-6 Day Courses at SANS Cyber Defense Initiative 2017!

Newsletters: @RISK


@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.

NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES
SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Apple Deprecates QuickTime for Windows; Zero-day Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability Disclosed
Description: The Zero Day Initiative has published an advisory for Apple QuickTime for Windows, warning users of a heap corruption flaw that could result in arbitrary code execution. Apple has stated that they will not be patching the security vulnerability in QuickTime for Windows and will no longer support the product, thereby depreciating the product. Users are advised to immediately uninstall QuickTime for Windows due to the fact it will no longer be supported and increases the risk of compromise.

Title: VMware Patches Critical Flaw in VMware Client Integration Plugin That Could Allow a Man-in-the-Middle Attack
Description: VMware has patched a critical flaw (CVE-2016-2076) in the VMware Client Integration Plugin that, if exploited, would allow a man-in-the-middle attack or a session hijacking attack to occur. This flaw manifests as a result of the plugin incorrectly handling unsanitized session content. This vulnerability is present in vCenter Server 6.0; vCenter Server 5.5; vCloud Director 5.5.5; and vRealize Automation Identity Appliance 6.2.4. VMware notes that both server client will need to be patched to address this vulnerability fully.
