Glibc: Extremely severe bug leaves number of software and devices vulnerable

Researchers have discovered a potentially catastrophic flaw in glibc,  that leaves hundreds or thousands of apps and hardware devices vulnerable to attacks.

Just clicking on a link or connecting to a server can result in remote code execution (RCE), allowing attackers to steal data or even control your computer. 

The vulnerability was introduced in 2008 in GNU C Library, a collection of open source code that powers most distributions of Linux, including those distributed with routers and other types of hardware.

The function getaddrinfo() which performs domain-name lookups contains a buffer overflow bug that allows attackers to remotely execute malicious code. This code can be invoked when your application or device makes queries to domain names or name servers under an attackers control. This bug can also be invoked when adversaries have the ability to manipulate name server queries by man-in-the-middle attack. All versions of glibc after 2.9 are vulnerable.

Most of the distributions have given advisories on how to prevent this attack or upgrade to a newer glibc which does not have this bug. It is advised that you follow these instructions to protect your network and data.

You need to also check whether your routers, security devices are vulnerable to this bug and ways to upgrade the firmware to prevent it.

2015's big security attacks and blunders

The security breaches and blunders have made us loose faith in health insurance agencies, credit agencies, car manufacturers and even toy makers. Once again, it has been revealed that security is always the last thing that an organisation thinks about, whether big or small. We no longer can trust the innocence of the toys that are kids play with. Are we bieing overly paranoid ? Maybe yes, but security has still a long way to go before it gets into the central thinking of organisations. 

Anthem Data Breach

In Febraruary, this year, Anthem Inc. said its database was penetrated by a hacker attack which included personal information for 78.8 million people, including 60 million to 70 million of its own current and former customers and employees.

Chrysler/Jeep's Hack

Two security researchers teamed up with a journalist in July and demonstrated how they take control of a moving Jeep in a live traffic demo. Chrysler was severly affected by this and had to recall 1.4 million vehicles for security fixes

Vtech toys hacked 

Vtech, a company which specialises in electronic toys and educational material for childred has stated that there was "unauthorised access" to the database on 14 November, irony, that it is celebrated as 'Children's Day' in India. In an email to customers, the company said: "Upon discovering the unauthorised access we immediately conducted a thorough investigation, which involved a comprehensive check of the affected site and implementation of measures to defend against further attacks.". A Large number of childred information, which looked could be from this hack, appeared online. This included their name, age, gender etc.

Havard Univertisy

A July breach at Harvard University highlighted growing security concerns around higher-education. The breach affected as many as eight schools and administrative offices. It remains unclear what information was accessed by the hackers.
