Palo Alto Networks News of the Week – October 18

Here is this week’s top Palo Alto Networks news.

 

Palo Alto Networks announced this week that we have extended our enterprise security platform to bring next-generation security right to the public cloud – all while preserving speed and efficiency. Find out more.

Sometimes Patch Tuesday comes and goes with little excitement or fanfare; this month was different. Unit 42 explains the significance of October’s “Super Tuesday,” and check out the new critical Internet Explorer vulnerability impacting versions 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 discovered by a Palo Alto Networks researcher.

Sebastian Goodwin with Palo Alto Networks is at Black Hat Europe in Amsterdam and wanted to share his experience at a great hands-on workshop at the conference, “PDF Attack: A Journey From the Exploit Kit to the Shellcode,” hosted by Jose Miguel Esparza.

This week three Google researchers revealed details around the latest attack on SSLv3, code named POODLE. The POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) attack allows an attacker who is already in the network path between the client and server to decrypt portions of the SSL session, including HTTP cookie data used for authentication. Unit 42 further examines this attack.

Brian Tokuyoshi highlights security risks of devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) and how to secure them against unauthorized network access.

Congratulations to our September PA-7050 Picture It winners, Brad & Manish!
