Re: New Problem same discussion
This article brings back memories of numerous discussions from 15-20 years ago about how to adhere to the SDLC in the fast paced world of the Internet I would agree. It is an old question without a proper answer yet.

Re: internet sercruits
you all are lasy devs and programers just because a program says it ok doesnt mean ur dont ur job. That might be true, mostly less about laziness more about not having enough time to check and re-check.

Re: internet sercruits
its very smimple to fix all you have to do is get an audit done and emprove on the ave score 200/400 It makes sense however most audit would not catch most vulnerabilities. It needs to be intensive pen test.

I would agree with the article. There has to be a better way to develop application so there is incentive to develop secure applications.

New Problem same discussion
This article brings back memories of numerous discussions from 15-20 years ago about how to adhere to the SDLC in the fast paced world of the Internet.  I'm not truely sure we ever came up with a solution for that either, reference the iOS 11 update over the weekend.  Security can't be something we leave to the whim of happenstance theory.

its very smimple to fix all you have to do is get an audit done and emprove on the ave score 200/400. to do this to a score off 400 would stop alot off pppl useing the cracks in programs to do whot ever thay do.

also ppl are not useing a direct attack on ppl but rather useing other ppls web sites we vist as a point off entry ie cookies,poor audit scores, paying for ur padlock form digigroup and not doing your job properly.

you all are lasy devs and programers just because a program says it ok doesnt mean ur dont ur job.

CVE-2020-25596
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. x86 PV guest kernels can experience denial of service via SYSENTER. The SYSENTER instruction leaves various state sanitization activities to software. One of Xen's sanitization paths injects a #GP fault, and incorrectly delivers it twice to the guest. T...
CVE-2020-25597
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There is mishandling of the constraint that once-valid event channels may not turn invalid. Logic in the handling of event channel operations in Xen assumes that an event channel, once valid, will not become invalid over the life time of a guest. Howeve...
CVE-2020-25598
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen 4.14.x. There is a missing unlock in the XENMEM_acquire_resource error path. The RCU (Read, Copy, Update) mechanism is a synchronisation primitive. A buggy error path in the XENMEM_acquire_resource exits without releasing an RCU reference, which is conceptually similar...
CVE-2020-25599
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There are evtchn_reset() race conditions. Uses of EVTCHNOP_reset (potentially by a guest on itself) or XEN_DOMCTL_soft_reset (by itself covered by XSA-77) can lead to the violation of various internal assumptions. This may lead to out of bounds memory a...
CVE-2020-25600
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. Out of bounds event channels are available to 32-bit x86 domains. The so called 2-level event channel model imposes different limits on the number of usable event channels for 32-bit x86 domains vs 64-bit or Arm (either bitness) ones. 32-bit x86 domains...
