ACTi And Twonky Directory Traversal Vulnerabilities Disclosed By Digital Defense

DDI has disclosed multiple disclosures in recent months

San Antonio, TX – April 30, 2012 – Digital Defense, Inc. (DDI), an industry leader of managed, cloud-based security assessments and advanced vulnerability management solutions, discloses directory traversal vulnerabilities in two different products, the ACTi Web Configurator 3.0 and the PacketVideo TwonkyServer and TwonkyMedia software. The previously unknown flaws – zero-day vulnerabilities – can allow unauthenticated remote attackers to gain access to restricted files which may contain passwords or other private information, compromising an organization’s security. DDI immediately notified both companies about the vulnerabilities, which have been addressed by the organizations. Further detail can be found on the DDI Labs Blog.

Larry Hurtado, DDI President and CEO, states, “Automatic Zero-Day Vulnerability detection is a key DDI core competency.
