Install Latest Chrome Update to Patch 0-Day Bug Under Active Attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

chrome browser software update

Google yesterday released a new critical software update for its Chrome web browser for desktops that will be rolled out to Windows, Mac, and Linux users over the next few days.

The latest Chrome 80.0.3987.122 includes security fixes for three new vulnerabilities, all of which have been marked ‘HIGH’ in severity, including one that (CVE-2020-6418) has been reportedly exploited in the wild.

The brief description of the Chrome bugs, which impose a significant risk to your systems if left unpatched, are as follows:

  • Integer overflow in ICU — Reported by André Bargull on 2020-01-22
  • Out of bounds memory access in streams (CVE-2020-6407) — Reported by Sergei Glazunov of Google Project Zero on 2020-01-27
  • Type confusion in V8 (CVE-2020-6418) — Reported by Clement Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group on 2020-02-18

The Integer Overflow vulnerability was disclosed by André Bargull privately to Google last month, earning him $5,000 in rewards, while the other two vulnerabilities — CVE-2020-6407 and CVE-2020-6418 — were identified by experts from the Google security team.

Google has said CVE-2020-6418, which stems from a type confusion error in its V8 JavaScript rendering engine, is being actively exploited, although technical information about the vulnerability is restricted at this time.

The search giant has not disclosed further details of the vulnerabilities so that it gives affected users enough time to install the Chrome update and prevent hackers from exploiting them.

A successful exploitation of the integer overflow or out-of-bounds write flaws could allow a remote attacker to compromise a vulnerable system by tricking the user into visiting a specially crafted web page that takes advantage of the exploit to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

It’s recommended that Windows, Linux, and macOS users download and install the latest version of Chrome by heading to Help > “About Chrome” from the settings menu.

#cybersecurity | #hackerspace | Universal Directory vs Azure Active Directory

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

By Kayla Coco-Stotts Posted January 5, 2020

In the battle for modern directory services, are Okta®’s Universal Directory (UD) and Microsoft®’s Azure® Active Directory® (AAD or Azure AD) worth considering? For most, though, UD and AAD aren’t used as the replacement to a true directory service, like Microsoft Active Directory. Regardless, given the activity in the identity and access management (IAM) space, it is worth understanding the comparison between Universal Directory vs Azure Active Directory.

UD and Azure AD weren’t intended as replacements for an organization’s on-prem AD, but rather a complement to the identity provider. Both cloud identity management services allow admins to extend AD identities to web applications through single sign-on (SSO). Below, we’ll compare features of both UD and Azure AD. We’ll also detail the components that define a service as a modern, cloud-based directory.

Universal Directory vs Azure Active Directory

Okta introduced Universal Directory as a way to build upon their established foundation of web application single sign-on services. Over time, Okta extended UD to serve as a repository for user information from a variety of sources, so that UD acts as the subsequent authority for a user’s data attributes. It’s also a core underlying feature for admins looking to leverage Okta’s SSO capabilities.

Azure AD is a cloud-based user management solution for Azure and Office 365™. Beyond Azure/O365 management, Microsoft also created it to provide IT admins with web application SSO from the cloud. Azure AD is designed to work as an extension of Active Directory, connecting users to various web applications, Azure infrastructure, and Office 365. In order to bridge on-prem AD to Azure AD, a component called Azure Active Directory Connect is required and then subsequently if Azure resources are needed to be accessed, Azure AD Domain Services is required as well.

Like Okta, Azure AD is a great resource for admins looking to extend user credentials to web applications, but it isn’t generally considered a standalone solution. As a result, IT departments layer Azure AD on top of their existing AD and associated connective technology described (Read more…)

Comparing AD and SSO is normal for those looking to increase their directory capabilities, but what if admins don’t have to take the add-on approach?

Even though active shooter situation at Davies was a simulation, everything seemed real

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) – It’s training that’s never been done before in our region in the event that the unthinkable happens. Emergency responders tested their skills with a mock drill for an active shooter at a Fargo school Friday.

No one wants to have to train for this type of situation, but as we’ve seen around the country, it can become a tragic reality. One that our law enforcement says they want to be prepared for just in case.
