March VEF Participant Wins a Kindle Fire

Posted April 11, 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 in May. 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!

Our March winner, Greg Whyte, was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion last month. Here’s a little bit more about him and what he had to say about eEye’s VEF:

I work for JR Simplot Co, best known for the best French fries. In addition we provide many agricultural products that help to feed a hungry planet. I’ve been working in InfoSec for several years and IT for many years.

I really like eEye’s VEF because it not only provides knowledge about the risks relating to the Microsoft Patch Tuesday releases, but also rolls up great discussions on the rest of the month’s security happenings. Plus it’s informal, and that’s a big plus!

Again, congrats to Greg 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.

Bash “Shellshock” Vulnerability – Retina Updates

Posted September 24, 2014    BeyondTrust Research Team

A major vulnerability was recently discovered within bash which allows arbitrary command execution via specially crafted environment variables.
