No kidding, we really don't think we can just look at the traffic and determine if it is normal?-

re: Supply Chain Uncertainties Complicate Security
I'm surprised that there aren't more reader comments posted here. Considering how much industrial espionnage & other hacking comes out of China, and how much the Chinese government monitors internet traffic within China, it is highly improbable that-the sources of that-industrial espionnage are not known to Chinese authorities. So, we must deduce that they operate with at least the tacit permission of the government, if not with active assistance & encouragement. Given the escalation of attack sophistication, which implies very professional & well-funded teams of specialists at work every day, it is logical for the highest security enterprises to look at their network infrastructure devices with a heightened sense of skepticism since they are the likely next frontier of targeted exploits. This is the essential flaw in "The Information Age" - private knowledge is-power only if it remains a secret, and secrets are impossible to maintain for long-in an internet-connected world. Therefore, real power comes from ownership of the means of production - The Supply Chain itself, since it makes money by making & selling "actual things" regardless of who claims ownership of the intellectual property behind those things. By the time IP ownership claims percolate thru the global trade & legal systems, manufacturers may already be leveraging newly stolen IP into new products using new company names. In this game of cat & mouse, it is "advantage cat" every time...

Enterprise Vulnerabilities
From DHS/US-CERT's National Vulnerability Database
PUBLISHED: 2021-05-15
A XSS Vulnerability in /uploads/dede/action_search.php in DedeCMS V5.7 SP2 allows an authenticated user to execute remote arbitrary code via the keyword parameter.
PUBLISHED: 2021-05-15
DedeCMS V5.7 SP2 contains a CSRF vulnerability that allows a remote attacker to send a malicious request to to the web manager allowing remote code execution.
PUBLISHED: 2021-05-14
The Linux kernel before 5.11.14 has a use-after-free in cipso_v4_genopt in net/ipv4/cipso_ipv4.c because the CIPSO and CALIPSO refcounting for the DOI definitions is mishandled, aka CID-ad5d07f4a9cd. This leads to writing an arbitrary value.
PUBLISHED: 2021-05-14
In the Linux kernel before 5.12.4, net/bluetooth/hci_event.c has a use-after-free when destroying an hci_chan, aka CID-5c4c8c954409. This leads to writing an arbitrary value.
PUBLISHED: 2021-05-14
The block subsystem in the Linux kernel before 5.2 has a use-after-free that can lead to arbitrary code execution in the kernel context and privilege escalation, aka CID-c3e2219216c9. This is related to blk_mq_free_rqs and blk_cleanup_queue.
