On June 7, 2024, a new critical PHP vulnerability CVE-2024-4577 was revealed, mainly impacting XAMPP on Windows. It happens when PHP runs in CGI mode with specific language settings, like Chinese or Japanese. The problem comes from how PHP handles certain characters, allowing attackers to inject code through web requests and take control of servers. This vulnerability, if exploited, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code, a scenario with severe consequences for system integrity and data security.

AWS WAF, a widely used security tool from Amazon Web Services, is a web application firewall designed to safeguard web application servers against various online threats. The tight integration of AWS WAF with key AWS services, including Amazon CloudFront CDN, Application Load Balancer (ALB), and Amazon API Gateway, ensures a comprehensive security approach. AWS WAF can also protect services offered by other providers as long as the content is delivered via the CloudFront distribution network.

Data breaches and their immediate impact on the organization are widely publicized. But what happens after the breach, especially with the breached credentials such as usernames and passwords? The breached credentials are often sold in the black market or leveraged by the attacker to attack the same or other organizations. This leads to credential stuffing attacks, where the stolen credentials are reused on different websites.

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) is a security vulnerability that allows an attacker to inject malicious code into a web page viewed by other users, usually in a script. When other users view the compromised page, the injected code can execute and steal sensitive information or perform malicious actions on their behalf. This attack typically targets web applications that allow user-generated content or input, such as message boards, comment sections, or search boxes.

In 2021, Amazon suffered a financial setback of around $34 million due to a one-hour system outage that led to a considerable loss in sales. Meta suffered a loss of nearly $100M because of Facebook’s 2021 outage. The consequences of downtime can be severe, and businesses of all sizes and governments can be affected. A DDoS attack can bring a business to a complete standstill for hours, leading to a substantial loss in revenue.

Vulnerabilities are everywhere and often exploited. For example, in 2023, over 29,000 critical and high vulnerabilities were discovered across approximately 1,400 applications. The dynamic and evolving attack surfaces make it harder to protect against these threats. When the attack surface gets bigger, so does the risk of cyber attacks. This blog delves into what an attack surface is and recommends best practices in attack surface reduction.

Overview: According to TechTarget, 94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. The primary reason is that most tech leaders assume that having a strong authentication and authorisation framework is enough to secure APIs. As a result, cyberattacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise. Join Karthik Krishnamoorthy, CTO and Vivekanand Gopalan Gopalan, VP of Products at Indusface, in this webinar as they demonstrate how APIs can be hacked.

Overview: Periodic security audits and compliance requirements have been a major source of stress for IT and security leaders. Especially as they demand a clean, zero-vulnerability report every 6-12 months in highly regulated industries. That is a big challenge in the face of hundreds of open vulnerabilities and zero-days. With this in mind, we have launched, SwyftComply on AppTrana WAAP. With SwyftComply, you’ll be able to get a clean, zero-vulnerability report within 72 hours.

CVSS score is valuable for assessing open vulnerability risk. However, despite the obvious difference in risk, CVSS scores overlook the distinction between vulnerabilities in staging versus production. This issue compounds with factors such as the number and types of applications, vulnerability types, and zero-day threats. Ultimately, leading to Alert Fatigue that helps no one as security teams need to triage 100s of vulnerabilities.

Account takeover attacks have increased by 354% y-o-y in 2023. What’s worse? It takes 11 months to solve an ATO breach. By that time, attackers would have laterally traversed your entire digital infrastructure, including databases. So, how do you protect your organisations against sophisticated ATO attacks that even bypass 2FA? In this live attack simulation, Karthik Krishnamoorthy (CTO) and Vivekanand Gopalan (VP of Products) demonstrate various ways in which account takeover can happen, along with practices to protect your websites and APIs against ATO attacks.

SOC 2, ISO270001, PCI, and other regional laws require you to have a clean, zero-vulnerability report. That said, even critical vulnerabilities take 250+ days to patch, especially when these exist in third-party plug-ins, open-source libraries, or legacy code. Compounding the problem are zero-day vulnerabilities like the MOVEit SQLi, Zimbra XSS, and 300+ such vulnerabilities that get discovered each month.
