How to Prepare for the Next Shellshock: [New Webinar]

by Palen Schwab, posted in Threats, Webinar, Shellshock, EC2


On September 24, 2014, a bug in the Unix Bash shell known as Shellshock was disclosed. The vulnerability widely affected Linux distributions, was easy to exploit, and allowed an attacker to gain unauthorized access to a computer system. This net shattering event left many organizations wondering whether they were compromised and if so, the extent of the damage.

That’s why on Wednesday, December 10th at 1:30pm EST, our Co-Founder and Chief Scientist, Jen Andre, and CEO, Doug Cahill, will be discussing lessons learned from this vulnerability and what companies can do to stay protected from the next one.

During this webinar you will learn how-to:

Uncover new threats

Using behavioral-based intrusion detection to protect against zero day attacks.

Protect your customer data

Using continuous security monitoring and auditing to keep data secure.

Reduce your EC2 workload attack surface

Gaining visibility and understanding your security coverage in AWS.

Join us for this live, interactive discussion and you will also receive a Threat Stack t-shirt. The webinar is already filling up fast -- save your seat today for “Preparing for the Next Shellshock”.

4 Steps To Effectively Integrate DevOps Workflows With Cloud Security Practices

by Pete Cheslock, posted in Cloud Security, DevOps

I’ve spent most of my career in Operations, and the last 5 years at various organizations advocating and instilling DevOps principles in the teams I work with. One thing I’ve noticed is that most companies value speed over security, which has traditionally been a blocker in delivering software.  

Recently, however, with more and more breaches and vulnerabilities reported (Shellshock and Heartbleed to name a just few), I’ve changed my tune. I’m not going to say I’ve become paranoid, but one of the reasons I’ve joined Threat Stack is because I believe how important it is that security gets integrated into the operations process.
