eEye to Add Retina Web App Scanner

New software is rebranded version of NT Objectives's NTOSpider

eEye Digital Security tomorrow will make its first foray into the Web vulnerability space -- with a new member of its Retina Security Scanner family that roots out Web application flaws.

eEye founder and former CTO and chief hacking officer Marc Maiffret first revealed eEye’s plans to add Web application scanning to its portfolio in an interview with Dark Reading last August. Maiffret said at the time that adding Web app scanning was “a natural progression” for eEye, which sells products focused on operating system and application vulnerabilities. (See eEye to Add Web Security.)

The new Retina Web Security Scanner is a rebranded version of NT Objectives’s NTOSpider Web app vulnerability scanner, and is integrated with eEye’s management console, REM. eEye also plans to offer an appliance-based version of the scanner software in the near future, says Morey Haber, vice president of product management at eEye.

“The vulnerability landscape is evolving -- the truth is, there aren’t nearly as many flaws in Vista as there were with XP,” Haber says. “Web applications are just a new medium that represents the next step where [attackers] can penetrate.” The tool can be used with the Retina Network Security Scanner: “If you’re doing vulnerability assessment and management you have to look at the implications from end to end,” he says.

NT Objectives, whose NTOSpider Web app vulnerability scanner attracted attention last year for beating out IBM/Watchfire’s AppScan and HP/SPI Dynamics’s WebInspect tool in an independent test and report, also licenses its product to Veracode. “The cool thing is that they [eEye] are plugging this into their backend system, giving people a neat holistic view of what’s going on in their network,” says JD Glaser, CEO of NT Objectives.

eEye’s Haber hinted that the company also may roll the Web scanner into its Preview services offering within the next few months, for a subscription-based Web app vulnerability assessment service that could compete with WhiteHat Security. (See eEye to Enter Security Services .)

Retina Web Security Scanner officially ships tomorrow and list pricing begins at $6,995.

    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....

    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 ...

    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...

    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...
