The Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE™) released its Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Errors (CWE Top 25), a demonstrative list of the most widespread and critical weaknesses that can lead to serious vulnerabilities in software.
As more businesses move to agile methodologies, providing more online services to customers and exposing data and APIs, the need for “Shifting Left” and building security into the start of the (continuous) development cycle grows every day.
When budgeting for video surveillance cameras, there are multiple factors to consider that affect cost beyond the camera itself. It’s important to also know the cost of installation, and the cost to service or upgrade a unit in the future. While configuring a small number of cameras will likely have little impact on cost, the labor involved in installing and servicing hundreds of cameras can be significant. A modular approach to camera design is necessary to reduce the installation costs and long-term maintenance of such cameras.
Last month’s ASUS APT attack doesn’t come as a surprise to any security-conscious industry watcher – this highlights a long-standing flaw in many software supply chains today. Attackers have been engaged in spoofing websites, stealing credentials and gaining unauthorized access for years. Injecting malicious code into legitimate tools that are designed to protect represents the next evolution in putting companies and their customers at risk.
Software is becoming ever more sophisticated and powerful. Its advance and innovation can be tied directly to the proliferation of open source. As more open source components find their way into published software, it is critical that known security vulnerabilities within the software are uncovered and patched. Failure to do so will either significantly increase the number and cost of attacks or impair the adoption of new technologies powered by the software.
