Java Vulnerability

Is Your Business Safe?

Security for your network is important.  There are many different ways that a person can attack your network.  One such method is through a Java vulnerability.  Java like most coding languages receives updates whenever they find an area of concern that needs to be addressed.  When an update is released it can be very important to make sure it is implemented on your system to avoid any hacks or attacks on your system. Here is how to make sure your java security in Denver is safe.

In November of 2016, the San Francisco Metropolitan Transit Agency servers and computers were attacked and infected with ransomeware.  The ransomeware demanded 100 bitcoin or roughly $73,000 in order release there system. The attacker gained access through a known vulnerability in an Oracle WebLogic server.  Oracle has known about the java vulnerability and even released a statement about it in November 2015 explaining what causes the java vulnerability and by extension how to prevent it.  The SFMTA was able to restore a backup from before they were hacked and implement new security measures to avoid paying the fee and prevent it in the future however a bigger focus on security could have prevented this from ever happening in the first place.
