More and more, security organizations report cyber security vulnerabilities in devices that are not exactly computers. Those devices may include routers, video cameras, and other “internet of things” gadgets.
It is critically important to know that your home devices with access to the internet are secured. Some of these weaknesses could be related to well-known default user ID and password combinations or whereas, some devices do not even have patching capabilities making people permanently vulnerable.
Digital Edge is monitoring known vulnerabilities in consumer devices and notifying our friends and colleagues about such cases.

1. This week, the Security Community announced multiple code weaknesses and related vulnerability in PHP. Some of them can cause denial of service, but more problematic is that it would allow remote code execution that might result in full server take over.
2. New Fortinet vulnerabilities were discovered that are very similar to the Juniper vulnerability announced a month ago. Fortinet is large Digital Edge partner. We verified with the hardware manufacturer that the firmware used in our devices are not affected by the vulnerability.
3. 2 SAP HANA vulnerabilities were discovered, both can cause denial of service through disk overload.
All Digital Edge managed or co-managed clients will be patched according to individual schedules.
