A brief overview of new products on the market of information security solutions for the week.
The new version of the DLP Endpoint Protector system for preventing data leaks on endpoints allows you to reinstall DLP policies. Endpoint Protector 126.96.36.199 brings many new features to users, including the ability to use the Azure AD API in Microsoft Graph to synchronize user profiles.
One of the main functions of the new version of the DLP system is User remediation, which allows users to change DLP policies, justifying these changes. The feature available in the Content Aware Protection module significantly improves the service for end users and reduces the time for administrators to respond to unsupported tickets and bypass requests.
Nutanix has added new features to its Nutanix Cloud Platform, making it easy to combine on-premise, edge and multi-cloud environments into a single cloud platform. One of these new features is the sixth AOS software, designed to help enterprises build modern, software-defined data centers and accelerate deployment in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
The new features enable enterprises to get embedded virtual networking, improved disaster recovery, and zero-trust security policies that would otherwise require additional hardware and software. Most importantly, due to the integrated nature of the Nutanix Cloud Platform, all functions are managed through a single interface, which significantly reduces operating costs.
Stairwell has released Inception, a recursive security threat detection, detection and response platform. The platform provides deep visibility to the corporate environment, which makes it possible to detect and respond to hacker breaks (past, current and future) of the corporate network much faster. Inception allows you to outsmart intruders and stay out of their reach.
Druva has unveiled a new technology for thoroughly recovering data from ransomware attacks using intelligent automation. Druva Curated Recovery mitigates the impact of ransomware attacks by creating a permanent, unencrypted ransomware and malware-free restore point to ensure successful recovery even before it’s needed.
McAfee has released a service to protect users online. The service provides a personalized, unified experience that focuses on providing privacy that matters to most people. McAfee’s new approach to online protection makes it easier for users to maintain their own online security with simple, intelligent and automated protections.
Is Elon Musk’s Satellite Internet Under Threat? Enthusiast Hacked Starlink User Terminal
At the Black Hat Security Technology Conference recently held in Las Vegas, Lennert Wouters, a cybersecurity specialist from KU Leuven (Belgium), shared his experience of successfully hacking Starlink user equipment. True, this was not a classic software hack, since the researcher had to make a so-called “modchip”.
The cost of manufacturing a chip connected to a Starlink subscriber terminal was $25. The chip caused a short-term short circuit, which disabled the built-in protection systems, after which the specialist gained access to the terminal. And already from it you can run any commands.
“Our attack could render Starlink user terminals unusable and allow us to execute arbitrary code.”Wouters said.
According to the researcher, the only reliable way to avoid such an attack is to create a new version of the main “dish” chip. Other ways to fix the problem. However, this hacking option provides direct access to subscriber equipment, and this is not the easiest option, but the Starlink system, apparently, is well protected from remote hacking. So its users hardly need to worry.
Hackers hacked Europe’s largest missile manufacturer
Unknown hackers, acting under the nickname Adrastea, hacked into the database of the largest European missile manufacturer – MBDA, formed as a result of the merger of the French Aérospatiale-Matra Missiles, the British Matra BAe Dynamics and the Italian Finmeccanica-Leonardo. This was reported by Security Affairs.
The attackers’ message about gaining access to the company’s network appeared on one of the forums. As evidence, a link to an archive with demo files was attached.
The total amount of stolen data was estimated by hackers at 60 GB. “The uploaded data contains confidential and confidential information about your company’s employees who took part in the development of closed military projects MBDA (PLANCTON, CRONOS, CA SIRIUS, EMADS, MCDS, B1NT, etc..) and about your company’s commercial activities in the interests of the EU Ministry of Defense (design documentation for air defense systems, missile systems and coastal defense systems, drawings, presentations, video and photo (3D) materials, contract agreements and correspondence with other companies Rampini Carlo, Netcomgroup, Rafael, Thales, ST Electronics, etc.”, the hackers wrote.
Adrastea is ready to discuss the cost of the stolen data array. MBDA has not yet commented on the incident.
MBDA manufactures a wide variety of missiles and related installations. For example, the company produces air-to-air missiles AIM-132 ASRAAM (short range, with IR guidance), MBDA Meteor (long range), MICA (medium range, with IR and radar guidance). The company’s product range also includes surface-to-air missiles – Mistral (MANPADS), MBDA Aster (medium and long range), Aspide Mk.1 (medium range), Sea Wolf (SAM), anti-ship (Exocet, Otomat, Marte, Sea Skua) and anti-tank (ERYX, Brimstone, HOT) missiles.
Samsung is ahead of the curve again. The company released the August security patch for three flagship lines at once
Samsung was the first company in the market to release the August security patch for its smartphones. Moreover, for three flagship lines at once: Galaxy S20, S21 and S22.
Today, owners of these smartphones in Germany began to receive updates, including a security patch. Usually, users from other countries do not have to wait long. The August security patch fixes dozens of vulnerabilities, so it’s quite important.
Samsung has sometimes been ahead of even Google in recent years, releasing security patches earlier and offering longer support for its flagships, although just three or four years ago, Samsung was almost the worst in this matter.
