How much do you know about the supply chain that takes a vulnerability and turns it into an exploit?
In this new report, Tenable Research explores the lifecycle of exploits - from discovery to utilization in a breach. Their analysis of cybercrime economics will help you better protect your organization.
Iowa prosecutors have dropped all charges against two penetration testers who were contracted to test the electronic and physical security of three judicial facilities, only to be arrested for trespassing. The case highlights how a lack of communication before penetration tests can have serious consequences.
Mitsubishi Electric says hackers exploited a zero-day vulnerability in its anti-virus software, prior to the vendor patching the flaw, and potentially stole trade secrets and employee data. The Japanese multinational firm announced the breach more than six months after detecting it in June 2019.
Microsoft says it's prepping a patch to fix a memory corruption flaw in multiple versions of Internet Explorer that is being exploited by in-the-wild attackers, and it's issued mitigation guidance. Security firm Qihoo 360 says the zero-day flaw has been exploited by the DarkHotel APT gang.

Proof-of-concept code has been released to exploit a severe Citrix vulnerability present in tens of thousands of enterprises. Citrix says it's developing permanent patches but that enterprises should use its mitigation guidance. In the meantime, attackers are hunting for vulnerable machines.
Complex, manual processes and disparate, disconnected tools make it difficult for security and IT teams to mount a cohesive response. Bryce Schroeder of ServiceNow discusses a more effective approach to vulnerability response.
The DHS says the defacement of a U.S. government website over the weekend is not linked to Iranian state-sponsored actors.
