ValidEdge Adds New Bot Monitoring Capability

ValidEdge MIS 1200 processes large volumes of samples, in addition to analyzing unknown malware samples in seconds

SAN JOSE, CA-November 30, 2010–ValidEdge, a wholly owned subsidiary of LynuxWorks, Inc., today announced the most recent version of the Malware Intelligence System (MIS) that provides threat response teams fast, in-depth and actionable information unsurpassed by other malware analyzers.

Incidence response teams can now safely connect the MIS 1200 to the Internet to capture and analyze files downloaded by malware, particularly Bots, running on the MIS1200 appliance. The MIS 1200 also analyzes all dropped files, other processes infected by the malware and all new processes created by malware. These enhancements further increase the lead in analytics capability of the world’s fastest always-on appliance for automated identification and better mitigation of targeted threats from unknown malware. The ValidEdge MIS 1200 features patent-pending malware analytics that identifies unknown malware samples in seconds and allows first responders to analyze Bots and other malware with the aid of a separation kernel technology based appliance.

According to Gurjot Singh, CEO at ValidEdge, “Bots are one of the most severe threats to application and Internet security. ValidEdge is the equivalent of a research lab-in-a-box that identifies zero day or custom malware threats providing the first response teams the ability to detect, analyze and repair compromised systems in real time.”

Additional new features of the ValidEdge MIS 1200 include the ability to analyze malware embedded in Adobe PDF, Adobe Flash, and Microsoft office files plus additional configuration capability for complex malware that requires custom setup for analysis.

About the ValidEdge MIS 1200

The ValidEdge MIS 1200 processes large volumes of samples, in addition to analyzing unknown malware samples in seconds. The ValidEdge MIS 1200 incorporates several innovative analysis engines for classification, decryption, unpacking, reverse engineering, and combined dynamic and static analysis to fully reveal the current and potential intention of unknown malware.

The ValidEdge MIS 1200 provides a secure environment to expose malware, allowing responders to fully grasp the malware’s intention and learn what it was trying to target. It will also identify any logic bombs hidden in the malware waiting for a trigger to cause damage at a later time. Once the new malware has been identified, security professionals receive several detailed reports about the behavior of the malware. With this information responders are better equipped to clean zombie PCs and heal compromised systems. Organizations under malware attack no longer need to wait for signature updates. Using ValidEdge appliances enables organizations to make the right policy and security improvements to further strengthen their organization from future threats.

ValidEdge appliances are unique in the use of military grade separation-kernel technology developed by LynuxWorks to meet the highest requirement of security-critical systems. This technology allows complete isolation of the Windows environment so that malware cannot penetrate and corrupt the platform while it is being analyzed. This innovation ensures the integrity of the results. The MIS 1200 utilizes modern multicore processors, a real-time hypervisor, and an instant Windows environment reload capability to analyze multiple samples simultaneously leading to unparallel analysis throughput.

Availability

The ValidEdge MIS 1200 is immediately available.

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...
