Dashlane Launches Historical Password Health Score Reporting

NEW YORK, September 14, 2020 -- Dashlane today announced the availability of a new Password Health Reporting Dashboard for its business customers. The first-of-its-kind reporting tool gives company administrators unprecedented, in-depth visibility into employee password security and the ability to track improvements over time. While weak, stolen, or reused employee passwords are the number one cause of data breaches, Dashlane’s new feature helps businesses both identify employees with poor password habits and evaluate the effectiveness of a company’s security initiatives and password policies.

With employees across the globe working remotely, encouraging good security hygiene is a priority for CISOs and IT leaders now more than ever. A recent Dashlane survey found that nearly 60% of Americans are using personal devices for work during the pandemic, passing on the vulnerabilities found in bad online security practices to their employers. By encouraging and enabling employees to change bad password practices, Dashlane minimizes an organization’s attack surface and strengthens vulnerabilities. 

A business’s Password Health Score is important—Dashlane recommends a score of 90% or above—but tracking it over time is even more critical. When businesses understand the results of security initiatives, they can be more efficient and adjust strategies accordingly. With Dashlane, IT administrators can identify weak employee passwords while providing actionable insights and measurable results to leadership on the effectiveness of strategies and tactics to bring the company in line with best practices.

“A company’s security is only as strong as an employee’s weakest password, making password managers the best first line of defense against a hack or breach,” said Emmanuel Schalit, co-founder and CEO of Dashlane. “Many of our business customers have requested the ability to dig deeper into their company’s password performance to make Dashlane an even more effective tool for increasing digital security. We’re proud to offer this historical reporting feature, as a deeper knowledge of password security, coupled with education for employees on best practices they can instill both at work and home, is ultimately what will help prevent costly breaches and hacks.” 

Dashlane currently serves over 20,000 businesses. Password Health Scores will be available from May 2020. Before its release, Dashlane trialed the new Password Health Reporting Dashboard internally. For more information on how the company’s Head of IT, Jay Leaf-Clark, uses the feature, or to learn more, visit: https://blog.dashlane.com/reporting-dashboard.

CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
