Hundreds of large European companies are at risk of cyberattacks.
New study of the state of cybersecurity of pharmaceutical giants in Europe revealed vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the web applications used. According to experts from Outpost24, companies in the 10 leading pharmaceutical countries in Europe are not able to ensure the proper level of cybersecurity, and 80% of them are subject to “critical” risks of cyber attacks.
According to the experts’ report, EU pharmaceutical companies often use a large number of web-based applications, 3.3% of which were considered “suspicious” by experts, including open test environments. 18% of organizations analyzed use outdated, unpatched web components containing vulnerabilities.
American medical organizations operate about the same number of suspicious applications, but, as a rule, the total number of solutions used is significantly less (6,069) than in the EU (20,394).
More than 200 pharmaceutical applications in the EU operate without encryption, putting users at risk of interception and theft of their data. Errors in SSL configuration, misconfiguration of privacy policies and cookie settings are also common problems.
Scissors undercut: Windows 11 vulnerability reveals sensitive information from screenshots, including deleted parts
A dangerous vulnerability has been discovered in one of the standard Windows 11 applications that could lead to the disclosure of sensitive information to the user. Moreover, at the moment the vulnerability is not closed and attackers can use it.
We are talking about the application Snipping Tool (Scissors). The vulnerability, called aCropalypse, allows you to undo changes made by a user when editing a screenshot, including cropped or blurred parts that hide sensitive data.
When you edit a screenshot, you can save it with the same name as the original file by overwriting it. However, as it turns out, the Windows 11 Snipping Tool does not remove the original information from the file, but simply leaves it added at the end, which is usually invisible to users. With some trickery, a potential attacker can extract hidden information from a file and see what information has been edited.
As you can see, edited screenshots are usually much larger due to the inclusion of information from the original image.
This is a pretty serious vulnerability. For example, if you share a screenshot of an order confirmation page on Amazon, it may contain an address, the same goes for credit card numbers and other sensitive data.
In 2018, Google had an AI ready for a ChatGPT-style chatbot, but it was closed due to security issues.
In recent months, the ChatGPT chatbot has been on the news pages, and this has forced many companies to catch up with OpenAI. Among them are Microsoft, Google and a number of Chinese corporations. However, reportedly, the situation could be different.
As early as 2018, Google is said to have had a natural language processing AI similar to ChatGPT. However, company executives closed the project, considering it too dangerous. One of the developers was research engineer Daniel De Freitas, and Noam Shazeer, a software engineer at Google, also contributed to the project.
The project was called Meena and was a chatbot that could talk about different topics. With him you could discuss TV shows, have discussions about philosophy and joke. At the same time, the developers believed that this technology could be added to the search engine, however, in the end, Google stopped development. The company said the bot did not meet its AI security standards.
Note that later, on the basis of these developments, the LaMDA chat bot was created, which flies into the basis of Bard. Thus, the development nevertheless reached the mass user, albeit with a great delay.
