1.    Cyber Threats on the Rise | Protect Your Digital Fortress!

As technology advances, so do the risks. We highlight the latest cyber threats making headlines, from sophisticated ransomware attacks to data breaches affecting millions.

  • Siemens has published six new advisories covering 21 vulnerabilities. The most serious, based on its CVSS score of 10, is a vulnerability in Simatic IPCs, specifically the Redfish server component of MaxView Storage Manager. Microchip has released a patch for its MaxView product and users have been advised to install it.
  • VF Corp., the parent company of brands such as Vans, Supreme, Timberland and the North Face, said hackers accessed the personal data of millions of customers in a December attack.
  • Pandoraspear’ botnet hijacks smart TVs and boxes.
  • Hackers can hijack your Bosch Thermostat and Install Malware. Users are advised to follow necessary and recommended security practices which includes updating the thermostat firmware, changing the default administrative password, avoiding connecting the thermostat to the internet unnecessarily and using a firewall to restrict access from unauthorized devices.
  • CISA issues emergency directive to FCEB agencies on Ivanti Connect Secure, Policy Secure vulnerabilities. The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to bypass authentication and control checks to access restricted resources. In addition there is a command injection vulnerability in web components of Ivanti Connect Secure (9.x, 22.x) and Ivanti Policy Secure. This vulnerability, which can be exploited over the internet, allows an authenticated administrator to send specially crafted requests and execute arbitrary commands on the affected products. If both vulnerabilities are exploited in tandem, malicious threat actors could execute arbitrary commands on a vulnerable product. Ivanti has released temporary mitigation through an XML file that can be imported into affected products to make necessary configuration changes until the permanent update is available.
  • FBI and CISA issue advisory on Androxgh0st malware and botnet threat to networks. Organizations are urged to implement the recommendations in the Mitigations section to reduce the likelihood and impact of cybersecurity incidents caused by Androxgh0st infections. Some of these measures include prioritizing patching known exploited vulnerabilities in internet-facing systems; reviewing and ensuring only necessary servers and services are exposed to the internet; and reviewing platforms or services that have credentials listed in [dot]env files for unauthorized access or use.
