Xceedium, Inc. Key Developments

Xceedium Enhances Xsuite with Real-Time Shellshock Vulnerability Detection

Xceedium(R), Inc. announced that its product, Xsuite(R), now has the capability to alert privileged users of servers susceptible to the Shellshock vulnerability. At login time, Xsuite can now dynamically perform a panel of tests to determine if a server or other asset has been patched to address the vulnerability within the Bash shell. A warning can be delivered to the user, and its discovery logged, in the event an unpatched system is found. Privileged users can then determine whether to proceed to use a potentially compromised device or to log out and arrange for remediation. Log messages can be funneled to a security information and event management (SIEM) or log management system in real-time, to help drive or complement the vulnerability remediation process. Privileged users, and their credentials, continue to be targeted by attackers in an ongoing series of high-profile security breaches. Xceedium's Xsuite introduces a new layer of security that protects privileged accounts and credentials, and defends privileged access from exploit and compromise. The original remediation for 6271 was not complete, and still allowed certain characters to be injected into other environments via specially crafted environment variables. An attacker could potentially use this flaw to override or bypass environment restrictions to execute shell commands. Certain services and applications allow remote unauthenticated attackers to provide environment variables, allowing them to exploit this issue. As a result, CVE-2014-7169 was created to address these remaining vectors. CVE-2014-6271 is considered to be more severe than CVE-2014-7169, per RedHat, the team that discovered the original Bash vulnerability.

ServiceNow Chooses Xceedium to Safeguard Federal government Cloud Offering

Xceedium reported that ServiceNow has implemented Xsuite as a core component of its ServiceNow software-as-a-service offering to the U.S. Federal Government. ServiceNow relies on Xsuite to establish and enforce the many privileged user security controls established by FedRAMP within its cloud service offerings. Xsuite's capabilities, covering password and credential protection, access control, user monitoring, and session recording, were instrumental in helping to satisfy the many privileged user controls within FedRAMP, while also lowering costs and reducing complexity. Xsuite aids civilian, military, and intelligence security teams with critical privileged user controls necessary to achieve compliance with a full range of compliance standards, like the NIST 800-37 Risk Management Framework, HSPD-12 logical PIV/CAC requirements, and many others.
