We are using Patch Management for our clients using a third-party product. If you are interested in the product, let me know and I will give you info.
One of the things you mention is patching causing issues with applications. This is something we run into from time to time from our clients. Another issue we have is patching…[Read more]
Satwika & Frederic,
I agree patching is a very big deal, but what if the IoT manufacture didn’t provide enough space for constant patching? Example: Hardrive limit.
The patching will crash the hard drive at some point because of the file additions. Also, as you mention in a previous post,
The manufacturer may have used a very basic…[Read more]

I would also like to see these scanners, but playing the other side of the coin…
The users of these scanners are creating the database for them. Example: As a pentester, I use Chronicle to search for vulnerabilities of a specific IPAddress. It then scan’s the IPAddress for vulnerabilities. It does or doesn’t identify…[Read more]
Another online scanner you may want to check out is Censys.io. It uses Zmap and Zgrab to identify specific information about a network. It is glitchy sometimes and have to play around with how you search for mulitple IPAddresses or even a range, but it is a good and quick recon tool to identify how you may want to handle the pentest.
I am a fan of Nessus and OpenVAS. Nessus is free and available for Windows. You can download on local host and scan your home / small office network. Nessus / Tennable offers several plug-in’s for different types of scans. You could also do the basic scan, which we did in Ethical Hacking, but this won’t discover the Mirai vulnerability. You…[Read more]

Great find! Here is a quick story…

Great post. I was very shock that Uber didn’t announced data breach and try to use money to cover up.
I don’t believe that UBER was hacked. UBER had a long history on setting on setting customers and drivers data. They always come with new stories about been victims.
A quick search on Google will give you the statistics about how many times UBER was hacked.
The decision to allow certain penetration and vulnerability scan tools should be properly discussed prior to deployment, and each tool should be assigned to the utility owner. The utility owner will be the only authorized administrator, which would assign other users.
I believe the decision to allow these tools is based on the job description…[Read more]
Nick Wells reported a story on CNBC.com with a headline suggesting online fraud is not a bad thing.
He comments on a report from Forter, an e-commerce fraud-prevention company. Forter monitors customer […]
Interesting article Fred. I am not really sure how I feel about Nick Wells’ statement. When he said, “It’s the cost of doing business.”, I completely agree with it. There are always risks making purchases online and one need to be proactive in paying close attention to what links you are clicking on and if the websites are legitimate. I don’t necessarily feel comfortable when he says “A little bit of fraud helps.” I personally do not want to be that 2% and I do not think anybody wants to. I am not that familiar, but possibly some fraud cases are easily solved, but what about the ones that are not? The ones where others are going months and months of trying to get everything resolved.
I have to agree with Elizabeth. Just because the fraud occurring benefits the consumer instead of them being the victim doesn’t make the fraud ok. In the same vein, just because brick and mortar stores plan and budget for shrinkage doesn’t make stealing from them ok, no matter how large and greedy the retailer may be. Fraud is a cost of doing business that retailers and consumers should plan for, but I don’t think it is ever ok to just accept that that is how things are. They should plan for if it happens but take steps to prevent it from happening in the first place.
