Predicting Vulnerabilities in Compiled Code

Prognosis: Vulnerability Proliferation

With the increase of software usage worldwide, it’s only natural that a growing number of vulnerabilities will be discovered.

1999 was the inflection point for vulnerability listings. Prior to that, a variety of security tools offered different ways to categorize software security issues. As there was no standardized protocol for listing a vulnerability, inconsistencies were inevitable. In that year, the concept of common vulnerability and exposure (CVE) was introduced as a standard to represent software security flaws.

Vulnerability Rich - Contextually Blind!

It’s not uncommon to find the traditional vulnerability assessment report buried under the CISO family picture, compliance books, and his latest blood pressure test. These reports highlight the never-ending battle between security and IT about what’s more important: risks to servers and endpoints, or keeping the environment up-to-date and secured. There are even problems within the ranks of each unit. Dysfunctional processes, lack of efficient communication, and rudimentary tools put even more pressure on the CIO and CISO.

Vicarius Offers Free Assistance to Keep Your Remote Workforce Safe

With the weight of the world on its shoulders, the Internet, like Atlas, has kept the sky from falling. As a pandemic moves the global workplace online, we brace for the challenges that lie ahead. Now cyber threats around the world are on the rise, targeting health, governmental and financial institutions.

In Italy alone there's been a reported staggering 30 percent increase in cyberattacks since the outbreak of the coronavirus. With our institutions more vulnerable than ever, a quarantined workforce must take proper steps and precautions to safeguard organizational apps and assets from exploitation.

Vicarius, the Israeli cyberfirm behind TOPIA, announced Friday its plans to offer remote workers free software protection and assistance for all third-party apps.

"Our expertise is identifying and blocking software vulnerabilities," said Michael Assraf, Vicarius's CEO. "This is what most remote workers need most urgently as they work from home off vulnerable networks. What we're offering remote workers isn't just nice-to-have –– it's unfortunately necessary today.

The World Health Organization issued a report Monday warning the public of WHO imposters on a vicious phishing spree. Worldometers, an international statistics tracker, said it was the target of a DDoS attack and "malicious act.” Earlier this week, the US Department of Health and Human Services suffered a severe attack. The reported damage is still unclear.

Vicarius's TOPIA identifies vulnerabilities, prioritizes threats and patchless security patching, helping security team fast-track security cycles.

Since the outbreak, the hardest hit countries have reported a 30 percent increase in cyberattacks. Vicarius provides the perfect solution by inoculating programs with a cloud-based service that is ideal for remote access.
