Newsletters: @RISK


@RISK provides a reliable weekly summary of (1) newly discovered attack vectors, (2) vulnerabilities with active new exploits, (3) insightful explanations of how recent attacks worked, and other valuable data

A key purpose of the @RISK is to provide the data that will ensure that the 20 Critical Controls (the US and UK benchmark for effective protection of networked systems) continue to be the most effective defenses for all known attack vectors. But since it is also valuable for security practitioners, SANS is making it available to the 145,000 security practitioners who have completed SANS security training and others at their organizations who hope to stay current with the offensive methods in use.

NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES
SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Google Releases Security Advisory for Android to Address Several Critical Vulnerabilities
Description: Google has released a security advisory aimed at addressing several critical Android vulnerabilities. The most severe of these vulnerabilities is CVE-2016-0801/CVE-2016-0802, a flaw that "could allow a remote attacker to use specially crafted wireless control message packets to corrupt kernel memory in a way that leads to remote code execution in the context of the kernel." The advisory also addresses remote code execution flaws found in Mediaserver as well as privilege escalation attacks in other drivers and services. Google has released updates for Android 4.4.4, 5.0, 5.1.1, 6.0, and 6.0.1. Partners have also been informed of these vulnerabilities.
