Federal Cyber Security Official: Prepare For The Worst

The nation must prepare for the worst-case scenario when it comes to securing the Internet, warned Richard Clarke, President Bush's special advisor on cyberspace security, on Wednesday.

"We haven't patched the holes literally or figuratively. We have a system that's vulnerable to sophisticated attackers, not just the 14-year-olds," Clarke said.

OS Vulnerabilities: Universal Problem

Microsoft tries to cage security gremlins By Robert Lemos Special to CNET News.com November 6, 2001, Microsoft's security response center must be feeling a little punch-drunk these days. After the one-two combination of the Code Red and Nimda worms that targeted the company's server and PC software this past summer, the titan announced an initiative in early October to promote security-savvy administration among its partners.

However, almost every week since it announced its Strategic Technology Protection Program, a new security flaw has cropped up. In the past few weeks, holes have been found in Excel and PowerPoint and a new system for protecting music content. A major security patch was issued for Windows XP, and the company had to shut down part of its Passport service to fix a set of flaws in the technology that Microsoft hopes will become the foundation of its .Net initiative.

Microsoft's New Security Program Has BugsBy Brian McWilliams, NewsbytesREDMOND, WASHINGTON, U.S.A.,01 Nov 2001, 5:43 PM CSTA new security initiative unveiled by Microsoft [NASDAQ:MSFT] last month is off to a rocky start, according to customers and security experts. Microsoft's Strategic Technology Protection Program drew praise when it was announced Oct. 3. But already the effort, positioned by the company as "an unprecedented mobilization of Microsoft's people and resources" to help customers secure their systems, has hit several snags.

The first occurred on Oct. 18, when Microsoft released a security patch that caused some Windows 2000 systems to stop functioning properly. Citing "human error in the patch building process," the company withdrew and later re-issued the patch.

Risky business Network World, 11/19/01 A recently discovered buffer-overflow vulnerability could let hackers take

control of the following Unix systems unless their common desktop environment component is disabled or a software patch is added.

At risk: • IBM AIX 4.3, 5.1 • Caldera OpenUnix 8.0, UnixWare 7 • Hewlett-Packard HP-UX 10.10, 10.20, 10.24, 11.00,

11.04, 11.11 • Sun Solaris 7, 8 • Compaq Tru64 Digital Unix 4.0F, 40G, 5.0a, 5.1, 5.1a

• Unspecified SGI Unix Not at risk: • Cray UNICOS, UNICOS/mk and Crayu Tools • Fujitsu UXP/V operating system SOURCE: ISS AND CERT

What’s Missing?

• Protection for the OS– An OS “firewall”

• Kernel-level protection to provide your existing security infrastructure with a last layer of defense – Intercepts– Identifies– Prevents

potentially damaging ‘behavior’ within any executing code on a system (i.e., applications, device drivers, and services)

• Proactive 360º enterprise protection intercepts, identifies and prevents damage from known and unknown malicious code, human error, and other attacks whether internal or external

• Intrusion Prevention = STAT™ Neutralizer

STAT Neutralizer

• Result of extensive research in code containment, software testing techniques, and intrusion detection– Provides ultimate intrusion prevention by stopping known and

unknown security threats, providing immediate intrusion diagnosis, and ensuring strict end user policy compliance

• Pattern independent in implementation– Protects against both the known and unknown– Simply denies undesirable behaviors

• Malicious code protection regardless of source – Works on rules that define allowable behavior. Prevents

execution of code not allowed on the network. Prevents network assets from being used as hosts for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

• Centralized Management– Leverages Windows NT/2000 administrative features. Console

allows for single point of management. Remote management via Web access from any PC.

STAT Neutralizer

• Strict security policy enforcement– Automatically holds users accountable to security policy. Prohibit

applications or users access to certain files or directories. Prevent the download & install of programs

• Real-time, 360° protection– Does not require updates, enabling it to always be on. Protects

against internal and external threats

• Significantly reduced false positives– Looks at executing code not network traffic. Logs only attacks or

events that would have resulted in harm. Supplied policies protect against many false positives. Administrator can create rules to allow (and not log) behaviors that they deem as “false positives.”

STAT Product Family

• STAT® Scanner– Vulnerability scanner– Keep assets up-to-date with current security

recommendations and updates

• STAT® Analyzer– Security assessment automation– Audit or assess how well your security settings are

relative to your policy

• STAT® Neutralizer– Malicious code defense– Intercept and stop destructive behavior

Our software helps take a proactive approach to addressingsecurity vulnerabilities and threats before they can cause problems
