North Korean nation-state threat actors are exploiting a critical remote code execution vulnerability affecting multiple versions of a DevSecOps tool - a high-risk development, especially in light of Pyongyang hackers' recent track record of supply chain hacks.
Ransomware hackers are using a critical flaw in a DevOps tool, days after developer JetBrains issued a critical security update to patch its TeamCity build management and continuous integration server. Servers such as TeamCity are high-value targets since they manage source code, keys and secrets.
A finalist in RSA Conference's prestigious Innovation Sandbox contest completed its first major funding round to extend its capabilities from code security to pipeline security. Endor Labs got $70 million to move beyond protecting open-source software and get into locking down the CI/CD pipeline.
Application journeys are fluid in practice because applications can live anywhere. Complex deployments with too many tools to configure and manage and overwhelmed IT teams lead to mistakes, so organizations should take a cybersecurity mesh platform approach to securing their application journeys.
Traditional licensing models that lock organizations into fixed solutions or time periods are no longer ideal. Organizations need to consider usage-based licensing approaches that offer flexibility to deploy whatever solutions are required, wherever they are needed, for whatever length of time.
Millions of GitHub repositories are vulnerable to a repository renaming flaw that could enable supply chain attacks, a new report by security firm Aqua said. It found 36,983 GitHub repositories vulnerable to repo jacking attacks, including Google and Lyft.
Synopsys stands head and shoulders above the competition in Gartner's application security testing rankings, with Snyk rising and HCL Software falling from the leaders category. Longtime app security players Veracode, Checkmarx and OpenText joined Synopsys and Snyk atop the Gartner Magic Quadrant.
Developers want to move quickly and they want security to be "a natural part" in every step of the software development life cycle. Generative AI can play a pervasive role in helping cybersecurity keep up the pace, according to Brian Roche, chief product officer at Veracode.
Snyk has executed its third round of layoffs since June 2022, axing 128 workers amid projections of challenging market conditions persisting into early 2024. The Boston-based application security vendor revealed Thursday plans to reduce its more than 1,200-person staff by an estimated 11%.
Microsoft has issued fixes for 114 vulnerabilities, including patching a zero-day flaw being actively exploited by a ransomware group and updating guidance to block a vulnerability from 2013 that was recently exploited for the software supply chain attack on 3CX users, attributed to North Korea.
The Biden administration has unveiled its new national cybersecurity strategy, detailing top challenges facing the U.S. and plans for addressing them. Goals include minimum security requirements for critical infrastructure sector organizations and liability for poor software development practices.
APIs represent the best and worst of times - "massive amounts of business value, but massive amounts of unmitigated risk," says Richard Bird, CSO, Traceable AI. In the past year, misconfigured or error-prone APIs resulted in high-profile breaches at Twitter and T-Mobile. He sees more on the horizon.
Organizations must grapple with software development happening at a faster pace than ever as well as an exponential increase in attacks on the software layer. Contrast Security has therefore developed new technology to secure code that's deployed quickly to the cloud, CEO Alan Naumann says.
Darknet markets offering illegal drugs and fraudster tools and services are thriving, despite the constant threat of law enforcement infiltration, disruption, takedown and arrests. In response, multiple drug markets have launched customized Android apps to handle buying, selling and fulfillment.
