Mirai Variant Goes After Enterprise Systems

Researchers have discovered a new variant of the infamous Mirai IoT botnet, which has been sniffing out and targeting vulnerabilities in enterprise wireless presentation and display systems since January.

Palo Alto Network’s Unit 42 researchers said that the newest variant of Mirai is notably different because it is targeting enterprise-focused devices as opposed to vulnerable consumer IoT devices; namely, it has been targeting WePresent WiPG-1000 Wireless Presentation systems and LG Supersign TVs.

NICE READ: How the Dark Web Data Bazaar Fuels Enterprise Attacks

What does the age of near-ubiquitous data breaches, deep fakes, and fallible biometric authentication mean for enterprise security?

It seems every aspect of our lives is available to be found somewhere on the internet. And the information available isn’t simply embarrassing browsing histories but ranges from our medical histories to the logon credentials we use to access many of our online services. This is certainly a privacy concern, but it’s also increasingly an enterprise cybersecurity hazard. The more information adversaries have about us, the more effectively they can target their attacks.

Container Escape Hack Targets Vulnerable Linux Kernel

A proof-of-concept hack allows adversaries to tweak old exploits, have code jump containers and attack underlying infrastructure.

Researchers at CyberArk have created a proof-of-concept attack that allows adversaries to bypass container security, escape the container and compromise an entire host system. However, the attack scenario is limited, in that a successful attack depends on unpatched vulnerabilities to be present in the host system.
