Welcome to Security in Context

Bringing you news and commentary on solutions and strategies for protecting critical IT infrastructure in the context of your business.

January VEF winner announced. Takes home an Amazon Kindle Fire.

Posted January 26, 2012    Sarah Lieber

As you all know, every month we host our Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) webinar. This is a time where our experts share valuable insight regarding new vulnerabilities that are discovered and the actions that need to be taken as a result. It’s a quick way to get up to speed on current potential risks to your organization and a way to explore the impact that high-risk vulnerabilities and exploits have on network environments and infrastructures. eEye is committed to helping security administrators reduce the workload they face by making this information easily accessible and by clearly presenting all required information to our audience.

If you haven’t attended a VEF before, I encourage you to sign up and join our next one on February 15, 2012. Not only will you receive a complete analysis of recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors but you could potentially win a Kindle product from us!

Just ask our January winner, Alex Klink, who was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Congrats to Alex. Funny enough he had been following the #hashDoS hashtag on Twitter which is what brought him to our blog to participate. Here’s more about him:

Alexander ‘alech’ Klink is a Solutions Consult Security at n.runs AG based in Germany, where he works as a penetration tester. While studying mathematics, Alex learned lots of fancy maths, which he forgot again rather quickly. He kept the frustration tolerance that comes with being a mathematician, though and uses it daily.

Alex enjoys discovering bugs in the specification, (not only business) logic errors, finding privacy issues in Adobe products and portrait photography. His CPU fan is being heavily abused by his research these days. Together with Julian ‘zeri’ Wälde, he looked at the hash table implementations of web application platforms and (re)discovered the so-called #hashDoS bug.

Again, congrats to Alex and thank you to all for being continued supporters of eEye and security for all. Don’t forget to join us at our next VEF and you too could possibly take home a new Kindle product! Sign up here.

Posted September 11, 2014    Chris Burd

There are many things in life that get changed regularly:  your car oil, toothbrush and hopefully, your bed sheets.  It’s rare that you give these things much thought – even when you forget to change them. But what if you’re forgetting something that can cost you millions of dollars if left unchanged for long periods…
