More needs to be done to protect against application security threats, particularly newer threats like bot attacks, API attacks, and supply chain attacks, according to one global security firm.
Microsoft and security firm FireEye's Mandiant Threat Intelligence division have published further details about the SolarWinds attacks, but neither company has fully verified the claims they make.
American cyber security company FireEye says it has identified a killswitch which will stop malware that was planted in the Orion network monitoring software, made by the Texas firm SolarWinds, from operating under certain conditions.
Improvements in patching hygiene have led criminals to divert their attention away from browsers and turn instead to supply chain weaknesses, according to a security vendor.
The financial impact of ransomware rose by 60% in 2018, losses from business email compromise (BEC) doubled, cryptojacking incidents - the unauthorised use of others’ computing resources to conduct cryptomining - more than tripled, and there continued to be a steady stream of high-profile data breaches, according to a report from the Internet Society’s Online Trust Alliance.
American security firm CrowdStrike has announced it is integrating the ability to detect firmware attacks in its endpoint protection product Falcon, a first of sorts.
Apparently undeterred by strong criticism of a supply chain attack story it published last week, Bloomberg has put out another yarn, dealing with a similar theme, this time about a "major US telecommunications company" that allegedly encountered doctored hardware made by the US company Supermicro Computer.
