News Newly Proven Attack Vector Has Security Field on Edge:
#1
[Image: 1*TYAzzTJ60x-qg5N81ElU9A.png]




             A new vector of attack has the security field on edge, as a researcher showed in a proof of concept, its possible to solder a small 5mm by 5mm ATtiny85 chip off of an Arduino board, and utilize it to manipulate the firewall, allowing the attacker to gain entry.

      This is all quite disturbing, even if something was in place to detect this threat, it would almost be impossible to remove, short of disabling the serial port or removing the chip itself. 


      This is entirely newly proven vector of attack, one that is very hard to detect by yet-to-be-invented hardware detection authentication at the firmware level. 

      Original article can be found here.


              That was the news folks, have a good day, and stay safe out there.
