ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Panda Security, the Cloud Security Company, today announced that it has acquired its exclusive distributor in Canada, continuing to propel the company's strategic international expansion and consolidation efforts. Since Investindustrial and other financial partners acquired the company in 2007, Panda Security has purchased eight of its franchises operating in key markets. The Canadian acquisition makes this the 14th subsidiary that the company wholly-owns, including offices in Austria, Brazil, Germany, Belgium, China, Spain, Finland, France, Holland, Japan, Sweden, UK and the USA.

Thus far in 2010, Panda has opened new franchises in Asia (Indonesia and Singapore); Latin America (Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama); and the Balkans (Malta and Romania). This expansion results in offices or franchises in 61 strategic markets and covers primary geographic areas of significant importance in the security sector.

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...
