Generative AI has emerged as the next big thing that will transform the way we build software. Its impact will be as significant as open source, mobile devices, cloud computing—indeed, the internet itself. We’re seeing Generative AI’s impacts already, and according to the recent Gartner Hype Cycle for Artificial Intelligence, AI may ultimately be able to automate as much as 30% of the work done by developers.

The Synopsys Cybersecurity Research Center (CyRC) has exposed prompt injection vulnerabilities in the EmailGPT service. EmailGPT is an API service and Google Chrome extension that assists users in writing emails inside Gmail using OpenAI's GPT models. The service uses an API service that allows a malicious user to inject a direct prompt and take over the service logic. Attackers can exploit the issue by forcing the AI service to leak the standard hard-coded system prompts and/or execute unwanted prompts.

A necessary step in securing an application is evaluating the supply chain of each component used to create the application—no matter how many hands were involved in its development. If any links in the supply chain are obscured, it can be difficult to confidently assess the amount of risk that an application is susceptible to.

Pickle in Python is primarily used in serializing and deserializing a Python object structure. In other words, it’s the process of converting a Python object into a byte stream to store it in a file/database, maintain program state across sessions, or transport data over the network. The pickled byte stream can be used to re-create the original object hierarchy by unpickling the stream. This whole process is similar to object serialization in Java or.Net.

The telecommunications industry has undergone tremendous changes in recent years. From the days when consumers could only make and receive voice calls on a landline to the broadband internet era in which people use data and stream videos on the go, telecom networks constitute an important backbone of the national economy. Telecom networks have evolved from 3G to 4G and 5G technologies.

A craftsman requires the appropriate skills and tools to work in tandem in order to create a masterpiece. While tools are an important enabler in the process of creating the best piece of work possible, the process also requires relevant experience and expertise on the part of the craftsman. Much like craftsman’s toolbox, a pen tester’s toolbox has wide variety of pen tester tools to work with based on the business objective.

Just like most software assets contain open source, modern software applications commonly link to external web services via APIs. But developers using web services might not have a suitable agreement to do so, and they may be inadvertently signing their companies up to terms of service. This white paper covers the types of risk associated with web services and how they can affect an M&A transaction.
