Millions Of Websites Hit By Drupal Hack Attack

Drupal Vulnerability

Digital Edge assisted its clients running Drupal with patching and security assessment after Drupal Security Team a security advisory on October 15, 2014 (SA-CORE-2014-005). 

All our clients are secured, however we are concerned that other non-Digital Edge clients may still be affected without knowing even after the patch was applied. Digital Edge’s Security Team brings it to IT industry’s attention that there is speculation in the Black Hat community that automated way of exploiting Drupal vulnerability is possible. The effect of such automation can be much wider then Drupal assessed initially. 

The concern is that a malicious code could be injected automatically prior to the patching into servers running vulnerable Drupal. After the patching, malware might stay on the server and can bring additional Trojans, spyware or open back doors into the system. 

For more valuable information about security and this particular case please contact Digital Edge security team through:

"Heartbleed Zero Day" Threat

NEW OpenSSL Vulnerability Advisory

Digital Edge has been and will be continuing to assess our clients risks and potential urgency for patching the new vulnerability, dubbed “Heartbleed”, which is a security concern for users of OpenSSL, a widely-used opensource cryptographic software library. It can allow attackers to read the memory of the systems using vulnerable versions of OpenSSL library (1.0.1 through 1.0.1f). This may disclose the secret keys of vulnerable servers, which allows attackers to decrypt and eavesdrop on SSL encrypted communications and impersonate service providers. In addition, other data in memory may be disclosed, which conceivably could include usernames and passwords of users or other data stored in server memory.

The vulnerability was discovered on April 7 and announced on April 8. 

If you are a fully managed client and was not contacted yet, it means you are not under any risk. 

If you are managing your own applications/services or part of the Digital Edge private or hybrid cloud, Digital Edge will assist you with upgrading vulnerable libraries. 

If you have questions please contact our security team sending an email to support@digitaledge.net

Thank you
