Have a D-Link Wireless Router? You might have been Hacked

Have a D-Link Wireless Router? You might have been Hacked

Feb 03, 2015
The popular DSL wireless router model from D-Link are allegedly vulnerable to a software bug that could allow remote hackers to modify the DNS (Domain Name System) settings on affected routers and to hijack users' traffic. The main goal of DNS hijacking is to secretly redirect user's traffic from a legitimate websites to a malicious one controlled by hackers. The vulnerability might also affects other devices because it is located in the same, widely-used wireless router firmware used by different manufacturers. Bulgarian security researcher Todor Donev discovered the flaw which exists in a widely deployed ZynOS firmware from ZyXEL Communications Corporation, that is used in network hardware from TP-Link Technologies, ZTE and D-Link. According to the security researcher, D-Link's popular DSL2740R wireless router and a number of other D-Link routers, particularly the DLS-320B, are vulnerable. Late last year, similar router vulnerability was discovered in the

Router Vulnerability Puts 12 Million Home and Business Routers at Risk

Dec 19, 2014
More than 12 million routers in homes and businesses around the world are vulnerable to a critical software bug that can be exploited by hackers to remotely monitor users' traffic and take administrative control over the devices, from a variety of different manufacturers. The critical vulnerability actually resides in web server " RomPager " made by a company known as AllegroSoft , which is typically embedded into the firmware of router , modems and other " gateway devices " from about every leading manufacturer. The HTTP server provides the web-based user-friendly interface for configuring the products. Researchers at the security software company Check Point have discovered that the RomPager versions prior to 4.34 — software more than 10 years old — are vulnerable to a critical bug, dubbed as Misfortune Cookie . The flaw named as Misfortune Cookie because it allows attackers to control the "fortune" of an HTTP request by manipulating cook
SaaS Compliance through the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

SaaS Compliance through the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Feb 20, 2024Cybersecurity Framework / SaaS Security
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework is one of the world's most important guidelines for securing networks. It can be applied to any number of applications, including SaaS.  One of the challenges facing those tasked with securing SaaS applications is the different settings found in each application. It makes it difficult to develop a configuration policy that will apply to an HR app that manages employees, a marketing app that manages content, and an R&D app that manages software versions, all while aligning with NIST compliance standards.  However, there are several settings that can be applied to nearly every app in the SaaS stack. In this article, we'll explore some universal configurations, explain why they are important, and guide you in setting them in a way that improves your SaaS apps' security posture.  Start with Admins Role-based access control (RBAC) is a key to NIST adherence and should be applied to every SaaS a
