The list was based on the Binding Operational Directive (BOD) 22-01 which states as “Reducing the Significant Risk of Known Exploited Vulnerabilities“. This directive was established to list the exploited vulnerabilities which has potential risk to Federal agencies and network. The directive importantly denoted that FCEB agencies must mitigate and remediate the list of identified vulnerabilities before the due date given.

Although the directive mentions FCEB agencies specifically, CISA instructs all organizations to use the list of known vulnerabilities and reduce the risk of cyberattacks.

CISA also mentioned that they will continue to update and address the known exploited vulnerabilities and will add them to the catalog in case of the specified criteria were met.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
