Stress test your VPN if you currently use one

Your Business Strategy and Resilience

Posted on 17th March 202017th March 2020 by Our team are working hard to ensure that both borwell/CYBX and businesses of all sizes are prepared with their business processes, continuity and ongoing resilience.
This article will help to give you an excellent foundation to move to a fully remote business case if it is required over the coming weeks.
Have a transparent internal discussion – work with team members to discuss high level deliverables, coordinate tasking, specify how to communicate and arrange meetings.
Daily short verbal scrums between internal teams can massively boost confidence, productivity and improve your internal communication despite changes in the business atmosphere.
Make sure everyone is on the same page and focus on a 3-month plan to make sure the business is suitably prepared.
Coping mechanisms – if you do find the business transitioning quickly to fully remote work, make sure to have communication, and encourage departments and team members to work together to solve any issues that arise.
The measures are put in place to keep your workplace safe and keeping a business as usual ethic will drastically boost productivity.
Audit your internal IT equipment – There are a few key points here, we’ll break them down into sections so you can check them one-by-one.
Stress test your VPN if you currently use one.

While the VPN may be fully functional during much of your core business

it is vital to conduct a dry test run to make sure everything works as expected.
Schedule an hour out of your day and have your staff members disconnect from the office network, .

Hotspot on their phone and connect to the VPN instead

This will provide a very accurate simulation for a fully remote business case.
Review your existing IT configuration.
Are there any remote applications that team members need to be able to communicate with that might be blocked by your firewall.
Have you reviewed the firewall and anti-virus configurations on each device.
All devices should have a universal configuration, and users should not be able to tamper with their work device while they are out of the office.
Check your infrastructure.
Are your servers running smoothly.
Is there the chance that a server may become faulty while your team are working remotely.
If there is potential for this to happen, who is able to visit the office to remediate this?.
Team Communication – Implement software that assists your team for day-to-day communication.
If you are using Office 365, it is likely that you are already well established with Microsoft Teams.
This application is outstanding for coordinating teams, projects and setting up remote meetings for team members to work together.
Otherwise, consider implementing a solution that assists your team productivity.
Focus on communication, transparency and tasking.
Make sure everyone can clearly see the status of all activities.
All of the guidance provided above will give you a perfect head-start for your remote working journey.
If you have any doubts or concerns about the transition, or you would like guidance on transitioning or sanity-checking your processes, please do not hesitate to contact our team for more information on 01684 377980.

Visual Studio Code ESLint Extention RCE ()

I decided to release my Microsoft Patch Tuesday reporting tool as part of a larger open source project ().
I named it Vulristics (from “Vulnerability” and “Heuristics”).
I want this to be an extensible framework for analyzing publicly available information about vulnerabilities.
Let’s say we have a vulnerability ID (CVE ID) and we need to decide whether it is really critical or not.
We will probably go to some vulnerability databases (, , , etc.) and somehow analyze the descriptions and parameters.
Such analysis can be quite complex and not so obvious.
My idea is to formalize it and make it shareable.
It may not be the most efficient way to process data, but it should reflect real human experience, the things that real vulnerability analysts do.
This is the main goal.

– analyze and group Microsoft Patch Tuesday CVEs

– collect and preprocess CVE ID-related data from NVD, Microsoft.com and Vulners.
– get Microsoft Patch Tuesday CVEs and filter vulnerabilities with public exploits (based on Vulners.com).
danger and relevance metrics counting ()and so on.
If you have good ideas please.
The help in coding will be also pretty much appreciated.

Windows DNS Server RCE (), called SIGRed, is the star of this Patch Tuesday.
It’s extremely critical and has existed for 17 years, affecting Windows Server versions from 2003 to 2019.

Getting RCE with only a DNS request is really impressive

Checkpoint guys made a with.
When this vulnerability was released, .

There was a feeling that there would be a public RCE exploit soon

But still there are only several and DoS exploit by , which looks workable, but for some reason is not present in the exploit databases, for example in.
Therefore, , as I mentioned above.
Indeed, searching for exploits and exploit validation are important tasks.
In second place, of course, RDP Client RCE ().

When a client connects to an infected server it become susceptible to an RCE attack

All versions from Windows 7 (and possibly earlier!) to the latest version of Windows 10 (2004) are vulnerable.
Of course, the exploitation of this vulnerability requires social engineering or Man-in-the-Middle attack.
NET Framework, SharePoint Server, .

And Visual Studio RCE () involves the deserialization of XML content

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker could upload a specially crafted document to a server utilizing an affected product to process content.
VBScript RCE ().
An attacker would have to convince a user to execute malicious code through phishing or to visit a malicious website, where the user would download and execute a crafted file.
In fact, we see tons of these vulnerabilities every Patch Tuesday, but still no exploits.

Microsoft Word RCEs (, , ).
Exploitation of this vulnerability requires an attacker to send a specially crafted file to a victim, or to convince a user to visit a crafted website hosting a malicious file which the user must open with a vulnerable version of Microsoft Word.
Obviously, this is good for phishing.

Jet Database Engine RCEs (, , )

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must convince a victim to open a specially crafted file or visit a malicious website.

Office 365 provides Exchange hosting

Cloud and Office 365 – Pillar – 2020-06-16T13:40:36-05:00 CLOUD AND OFFICE 365

Your company can’t afford to ignore the cloud.
Downtime isn’t an option and must be avoided to meet the demands of business, and costly onsite servers are no longer necessary to run a successful organization.
Cloud computing is here to stay, and now, it’s faster, cheaper, and easier than ever for small and medium-sized businesses to take advantage of cloud technology.
We provide best-fit solutions for our clients and often advise on cloud computing options like Microsoft Azure and Office 365.
Azure is a cloud environment that can host virtual servers with custom specifications and configurations.
Office 365 is just one cloud-based service that takes care of the things businesses care about most.

Office suite purchases are single-payment purchases intended for use on one computer

Office suites include applications such as Word

Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, but do not give access to cloud storage, Office Online or any Office 365 products.
These applications are not updated automatically, .

So companies must buy the latest version of Office again when it becomes available

Office 365 provides Exchange hosting, can replace file servers, enhances communication and collaboration, and comes with several cloud-based applications.

Office 365 plans are paid for through an annual subscription

Each license allows five installations of Office to avoid versioning conflicts

These plans give businesses access to the desktop and web versions of Office applications

as well as cloud-based storage and services such as Exchange Online, SharePoint, and Skype for Business.
With Office 365, a company will always have the latest version of Office regularly updated with new features and experiences.

Businesses are drawn to Office 365 for Exchange Online

an email solution that doesn’t require companies to host their own servers.
However, many organizations don’t utilize Office 365’s other apps to help their companies work smarter—for instance, SharePoint enables remote access to your company’s files and eliminates the need for large amounts of onsite storage, and Skype for Business facilitates group communication and collaboration.

Office 365 is designed to adapt to your business’s needs

You can easily add or remove users, or increase your storage capacity to accommodate company growth.
This way, you’re sure to never be stuck with hardware you’ve outgrown or paying for storage you’ll never use.

Office 365 applications are fully integrated with each other

so teams can easily work and converse around various files and tasks.
Employees can co-author, edit and share documents and resources in SharePoint and other programs, as well as hold online meetings with Skype for Business.
In addition to the desktop and web-based versions of its applications, .

Each Office 365 service also has its own mobile app

Whether they’re out in the field or working from home, employees can access files anywhere, anytime.
Office 365 subscriptions offer access to several cloud-based services that can increase productivity, ease communication, and encourage collaboration.
Below are some key services that may be useful to your business.
Office With Office 365, your Office apps will always be current and can be installed on up to five devices per license.
Exchange Online Exchange Online is Microsoft’s hosted version of its email and calendar application.
The service offers reliable email, better collaboration, and enhanced security over other webmail platforms.
SharePoint SharePoint is a cloud-based storage and collaboration platform that functions like an intranet site, allowing users to create, store, and share information.
SharePoint is quickly replacing the need for onsite file servers, allowing access to files from anywhere so long as a user has an internet connection.
OneDrive OneDrive is another cloud-based storage platform that lets users access and share files from anywhere.
Think of OneDrive as your employees’ personal drive that also allows them to share individual files and folders with others.
OneNote OneNote is a note taking program used by individuals or groups that gathers and organizes notes, drawings, and screenshots.
OneNote is easily accessible on all mobile devices.
Skype for Business Skype for Business is a communication platform that uses instant messaging, video conferencing, calling, and screen sharing to bring employees and remote partners together.
Teams Teams is a communication app that combines chat, meetings, notes, and attachments.
The service makes it easier for groups to collaborate on projects and tasks.
Yammer Yammer is an internal social network service that allows employees to quickly share files and updates, as well as discuss projects, campaigns, and more.
Most likely, you’re probably already using some version of Office.
So, it’s not a matter of whether Office 365 is right, but rather which parts of Office 365 are right for your business.
You may also be wondering when to move to Office 365.
Many companies make the switch when it’s time to replace their Exchange server.
Microsoft stopped providing mainstream support to Exchange Server 2010 in January 2015 and extended support will end in January 2020.
Migrating to Office 365 will eliminate the need to purchase and maintain hardware and software.
Additionally, once you migrate you’ll never need to upgrade to a new version of Exchange—you’re always using the latest version with Office 365.
Before choosing a path, your company’s C-suite should meet with an IT consultant to develop an Office 365 strategy designed to help you fully capitalize on your technology investment.
