FreeRTOS Has 13 Major Security Flaws

Research performed by Zimperium’s zLabs team uncovered 13 vulnerabilities that could be manipulated to leak information, crash devices, and even take control with remote code execution.

“During our research, we discovered multiple vulnerabilities within FreeRTOS’s TCP/IP stack and in the AWS secure connectivity modules. The same vulnerabilities are present in WHIS Connect TCP/IP component for OpenRTOSSafeRTOS,” shared zLabs in their report.

FreeRTOS and SafeRTOS “have been used in a wide variety of industries: IoT, Aerospace, Medical, Automotive, and more,” according to the company’s post.

“Due to the high risk nature of devices in some of these industries, zLabs decided to take a look at the connectivity components that are paired with these OS’s. Clearly, devices that have connectivity to the outside world are at a higher degree of risk of being attacked.”

These OS, being under the Amazon Web Services umbrella, are some of the most widely used IoT OS.

Organizations should check their environments immediately for any vulnerable devices. It’s no longer enough to detect Windows, Mac, and Linux devices. The IoT presents a whole arena of risks. Vulnerabilities can lurk unnoticed until it’s too late.

How will you deploy Office 2019?

Office 2019 is now available.  As of today, commercial volume license customers, Windows or Mac, can begin their deployment process. According to Microsoft’s statement, Office 2019 should be available to all customers within a few weeks.

A new edition of Office means a massive rollout to the devices in your environment. To dramatically reduce the time and resources this could waste, IT departments should utilize a software deployment solution.

With something like Syxsense, you can upload a software package just once, but deploy it to every device you wish. Silent installs are also possible by including switch statements. Once uploaded to the packages section, it’s easy to target the software for a customized deployment.

The software distribution task has options like snooze reboot and maintenance windows to ensure that during this massive deployment, no work is interrupted.

And taking advantage of an interconnected solution like Syxsense means having access to functions like our reports. Now, as you complete your work, reports can summarize task status for anyone that might need it.

Don’t get overwhelmed with trying to deploy Office device by device. Start your trial of Syxsense.
