Due diligence
While the companies are all required to have their own form of protection up, I sure hope that the cloud data storage companies are going to play their part and do what they can to protect all of their customers from being hacked too. I don't think that anybody would be so specifically targeted as opposed to trying to hit on the whole mainframe of the cloud network..

Cryptolocker and restore in hours
Small business can be very small indeed.  Before moving to Georgia in 2014, I had my own managed services business - just me and another consultant.  One of my clients was a lovely 501C3 museum I had been associated with like forever and they got Cryptolocker at 1:20 am on the executive director's machine.  Bounced to the server and everything went up into the air.  Everything.  When they called in panic, I picked up my dedicated Dell system to their server as off-site backup.  Not a drive but a whole computer.  Car, drove it down and as it had same name as server, everybody had data access fast.  Now the server could then be rebuilt fast and in 3 hours I had all data restored and server running fine.  Only lost desktop on Executive director station and I did not know he used a part of the.  98% restore.  Now that is a small one, very small, but illustrative of point of this article.  SMALL firms are vulnerable unless they have good staff or good consultant staff.  ( I should have charged more for my restore - well, lesson learned).

PUBLISHED: 2021-06-22
Trusty TLK contains a vulnerability in the NVIDIA TLK kernel�s tz_handle_trusted_app_smc function where a lack of integer overflow checks on the req_off and param_ofs variables leads to memory corruption of critical kernel structures.
PUBLISHED: 2021-06-22
Trusty TLK contains a vulnerability in the NVIDIA TLK kernel where an integer overflow in the tz_map_shared_mem function can bypass boundary checks, which might lead to denial of service.
PUBLISHED: 2021-06-22
Trusty contains a vulnerability in TSEC TA which deserializes the incoming messages even though the TSEC TA does not expose any command. This vulnerability might allow an attacker to exploit the deserializer to impact code execution, causing information disclosure.
PUBLISHED: 2021-06-22
Trusty contains a vulnerability in all TAs whose deserializer does not reject messages with multiple occurrences of the same parameter. The deserialization of untrusted data might allow an attacker to exploit the deserializer to impact code execution.
