The Hacker-Powered Security Report 2018 is the most comprehensive report on the bug bounty and vulnerability disclosure ecosystem. It contains a detailed analysis of 78,275 security vulnerability reports reported over the past year by ethical hackers through more than 1,000 programs.
This report looks exclusively...
Microsoft appears set to patch a zero-day local privilege escalation vulnerability after a researcher published proof-of-concept exploit code for the flaw. That's a relatively rare turn of events these days, owing to Microsoft's bug bounty program rules.
Apache has released an emergency fix for its Struts web application framework to patch a flaw that attackers can exploit to take full control of the application. Some incident response experts, based on the severity of breaches they've investigated, recommend dropping Struts altogether.
As the threat landscape evolves in today's networks, information security teams are scrambling to keep up. Attackers are using new and stealthy methods to infiltrate organizations and steal data, and the complexity of most environments makes it easier than ever for attackers to compromise assets and send malicious...
The defacing of the website of Jamia Millia Islamia, a public central university in Delhi, is the latest example of how academic websites in India are vulnerable to hackers. But the hacking incidents had a humorous twist that generated many comments on twitter.
The head of the NSA's Cybersecurity Threat Operations Center says attackers haven't bothered targeting unclassified U.S. Defense Department networks with a zero-day exploit in 24 months.

A set of vulnerabilities in AMD chipsets that gives attackers enduring persistence on machines appears to be legitimate. But experts are questioning the motivations of the Israeli security company that found the flaws, contending it ambushed AMD to maximize attention.
How can gaining visibility into indicators of exposure (IOEs) shrink layers of attack and more effectively contain incident? By understanding how network modelling and simulation can be used to visualize and analyze an attack surface, as well as understanding how to measure IOEs, such as vulnerability density,...
