“We finally tackled our backlog of OS and service detection fingerprint submissions.

We’re not talking about dozens or hundreds of them – we processed more than 6,500 fingerprints,” stated Lyon, reflecting on the monumental task.

This enhancement includes adding 9 new soft matches, further refining the tool’s ability to identify services and their versions accurately.

The update now supports detecting 1,246 protocols, incorporating new entries such as grpc, myself, asset, remote mouse, and tuya, thereby expanding its utility in diverse network environments.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
