An Update on U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)
Updates to the Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog
The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has made changes to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) Catalog. It’s like cleaning out your closet – some flaws stay, some go, and some new ones join the party. On Wednesday, CISA added two security flaws due to active exploitation to the catalog and removed five others simply because there wasn’t enough evidence to keep them. Talk about evidence-based management!
New Security Flaws Added
But let’s talk about the latest additions to CISA’s KEV Catalog. We have only one right now, but it’s a doozy. Get ready for this tongue twister: CVE-2023-42793. Yes, a name that rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it? Sporting a CVSS score of 9.8, this is the JetBrains TeamCity Authentication Bypass Vulnerability. It sounds big and scary because it kind of is. This vulnerability is like that extra tricky level in a video game: tough to navigate, frustrating, but hard to ignore. For these reasons, CISA has wisely added it to its register of security flaws, making it official – CVE-2023-42793 is now on the radar.
The Bug Wash Up
In brief, CISA is doing a cybersecurity spring cleaning, adding decidedly intimidating vulnerabilities like CVE-2023-42793 while sweeping away five others due to lack of sufficient evidence. Like that old dust bunny under the bed, they’re out of sight and out of mind – for now. Considering the ever-shifting landscape of cybersecurity, it’s a good thing we have CISA to keep track of the bugs that could potentially wreak havoc on our technological lives.
In a nutshell
With a keen eye for security flaws, CISA is keeping us updated on the ever-evolving world of cyber threats. It’s like the watchful parent of the internet, keeping track of any potential online bullies. While the recent addition of CVE-2023-42793 to the KEV Catalog may be worrisome, it’s comforting to know that CISA is on the case, guarding our cyber neighborhood against possible threats. Now if only they could figure out a way to catch those elusive email phishers!
