Jan 29, 2013
The Vulnerability-Laboratory Research Team discovered persistent and client side POST Injection web vulnerability in the nCircle PureCloud (cloud-based) Vulnerability Scanner Application. The vulnerability allows an attacker to inject own malicious script code in the vulnerable module on application side. Benjamin K.M. from Vulnerability-Laboratory provide more technical details about these flaws, the first vulnerability is located in the Scan Now > Scan Type > Perimeter Scan > Scan section when processing to request via the ` Scan Specific Devices - [Add Devices] ` module and the bound vulnerable formErrorContent exception-handling application parameters. The persistent injected script code will be executed out of the `invalid networks` web application exception-handling.

Identity Threat Exposures (ITEs) are like secret tunnels for hackers – they make your security way more vulnerable than you think. Think of it like this: misconfigurations, forgotten accounts, and old settings are like cracks in your digital fortress walls. Hackers exploit these weaknesses to steal login information, gain sneaky access, and move around your systems unnoticed, whether they're in the cloud or on-site. This upcoming webinar,  " Today's Top 4 Identity Security Threat Exposures: Are You Vulnerable? "  isn't just for tech experts—it's about protecting your business.  We'll use real-world examples and insights from Silverfort's latest report to show you the hidden dangers of ITEs. You'll learn about: The Top 4 Identity Threats You Might Be Overlooking:  We'll name them and explain why they're
