Hundreds of millions of people using everyday platforms could be at risk. One of the most popular server-side web programming languages, Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) was discovered to be at high risk for attacks. Patches for high-severity vulnerabilities have been released. Without a protective system like a smart WAF or a patch in place, those vulnerabilities could open the door for remote attacks that compromise servers through arbitrary code execution.

Modern-day cyberattacks keep growing in sophistication and sheer volume. This dynamic makes it virtually impossible to detect and block all attacks using the traditional methods of comparing incoming requests to known attack signatures. To effectively operate in this new aggressive cyberthreat environment, it is paramount that IT operations, developers, and DevSecOps adopt a proactive defense mindset. Threat hunting is all about having that powerfully proactive mindset. The underlying goal of threat hunting is to detect,…

It is impossible to protect APIs unless you take a deep dive into the protocols implemented over the standard HTTP. Most security tools are not protecting data where it’s most vulnerable, inside the XML schema itself. These encoding attacks are going unflagged by many application platforms, despite topline security tools and techniques they believe protect APIs. The problem is in the code and the relative inability to notice what malicious attack may be hiding inside…
