Headline Privacy & IT Security Compliance News

Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is warning federal agencies and others to patch a Windows flaw from Microsoft's May Patch by July 22nd. This flaw is in Windows’ Local Security Authority (LSA), containing a spoofing vulnerability that allows an attacker the ability to coerce a domain controller for authentication to the attacker using NTLM. After installing the May 10, 2022, Windows update, CISA is encouraging users to monitor for any warning messages and to enable ‘Full Enforcement’ mode on all domain controllers using certificate-based authentication if none are found.

HackerOne, a well-known cyber security platform that many large corporations and parts of the government do business with, has been called out this past month on a recent security breach. According to co-founder Chris Evans, a former employee improperly accessed security reports and then leaked information outside of the HackerOne platform to claim additional rewards elsewhere. This breach in internal data goes to show that any organization can be prone to insider threats.
