Description

On the heels of Black Hat USA 2019 and DEF CON, Threatpost editors break down the biggest news of this past week ended Aug. 16, from Patch Tuesday craziness to publicly-exposed databases. That includes:

  • Microsoft’s August Patch Tuesday release featuring four BlueKeep-like critical remote code-execution vulnerabilities in Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and a critical RCE flaw in Microsoft Word.
  • The personal and biometrics data of more than a million people left publicly exposed on a database owned by Suprema, a biometric security company.
  • Hacking conference organizer DEF CON Communications said it plans to roll out a global anonymous bug submission platform based on the SecureDrop communications tool.
