Apache 2.4.x XSS and Back-end Connection Vulnerabilities News

Posted August 28, 2012    Peter McCalister

Two new audits have been released recently in our Retina vulnerability scan engine to close a security vulnerability that can enable an attacker to upload files remotely via a XSS flaw or lead to privacy issues because of a back end connection closing issue (CVE-2012-2687 and CVE-2012-3502, respectively). These two new audits have been released with the commercial version of Retina Network. Users can include these new checks in a general vulnerability scan, or can create a targeted scan to specifically look for these specific vulnerabilities using the following Retina audits:

  • Audit ID 16927 Apache 2.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities (20120821) – Banner
  • Audit ID 16928 Apache 2.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities (20120821) – Package

If you have concerns of the security posture of your Apache environment feel free to contact our sales team and try out our Retina Network Security Scanner to discover, assess and gain remediation guidance in our simple to use standalone scanner. In addition to standard assessment of patches, insecure configurations and zero-days our Retina Web Security Scanner also provides in-depth credentialed web application scanning to identify application vulnerabilities as well as site exposure risk, ranks threat priority, produces highly graphical, intuitive HTML reports, and indicates site security posture by vulnerabilities and threat level.. http://www.eeye.com/products/retina/web-security-scanner.

I should also mention that we have a new version of our Retina Network scanner planned for later this month that includes a complete user interface overhaul and allows users to select from a list of built-in profiles to align the product to your specific job function.

The “insider” threat. Is it real, or is it being blown out of proportion?

Posted March 4, 2015    G. Mark Hardy

A lot depends on whether or not you’ve been compromised. And therein lies the problem. Cyber threats are often ignored until they cause some damage, at which point management looks for people to blame and gives all kinds of attention to fixing the problem – until the next crisis in accounting or warehousing or staffing comes along.
