Threat Advisory: Tracking the Badlock Vulnerability
March 28, 2016
There have been a number of posts and news releases relating to the Badlock vulnerability, for which patches are expected to be available April 12. The “marketing efforts” and media attention surrounding the vulnerability have received backlash given that no solutions are readily available.
The Badlock vulnerability is expected to impact Windows networking services which will potentially expose a large volume of Enterprise Servers and Hosts to exploitation. It is recommended that the latest Windows and Unix Samba patches be deployed as soon as they are available to mitigate risk of compromise.
Herjavec Group will continue to monitor Badlock and will notify our customers of any updates relating to this vulnerability including opportunities to test and deploy patches appropriately.
