How to secure an internal network?

Network security is a major challenge for companies. Indeed, the growing importance of IT assets, the interconnection of information systems and their exposure have increased the risks of attacks. At the same time, information (data) is produced, processed, exchanged and exploited by systems and on networks that may be vulnerable in all their components or configuration: servers, workstations, segmentation, Wi-Fi, user access, applications, etc.

APIs are everywhere. In most IT systems (mobile applications, web platforms, cloud infrastructures, etc.) and in all sectors of activity, these programming interfaces facilitate the exchange of data and their availability to a wide audience, whether customers, partners, or employees. APIs are also the driving force behind the development and growth of connected objects, as they form the basis of the communication channels of IoT systems.

Another article on Node.js security? But in this one, we focus on the most common vulnerabilities encountered during penetration testing.

Node related vulnerabilities have consequences for your entire web application. It is therefore essential to detect and correct them. Some of these flaws are not specific to Node and also exist in other languages and frameworks. This is why we have focused on providing general best practices and specific tools for Node.js.

Let’s dive in.

Securing a website: risks, challenges and best practices

The security of websites (e-commerce websites, corporate websites, SaaS platforms and other web applications) is a major issue for companies. Being exposed to the public, these systems are naturally prime targets for attackers, who take advantage of numerous vulnerabilities in the features and other components: servers, data, third-party components, and other critical features such as authentication, session management or access control.

Server Side Template injection vulnerability

Server-side template injection (SSTI) vulnerabilities tend to be less researched than other types of flaws. However, their impact is significant and often leads to remote code execution (RCE). They are therefore flaws that should not be underestimated.

In what contexts do SSTI vulnerabilities occur? How to detect them and how to prevent them?

This is what we will see in this article.

Logistics organisations are confronted to the challenge of relying on new digital solutions without compromising their security.

Facing a booming market, new technologies have indeed become a real performance lever. But their adoption brings increased cybersecurity risks with them. The concern is now to benefit from the advantages of these tools while protecting their information systems.

This is where a penetration test will help to strengthen the level of security, as it allows to verify the risk set by attackers on a given target. For a logistics company, it will assess the security of web solutions, control software, intelligent sensors, etc. against cyberattacks.

What are the priorities during a penetration test for a company in the logistics sector?

Here is an overview of cybersecurity issues we frequently encounter and that may be specific points of attention.
