Lenovo NAS Leak

A bug disclosed this week by Lenovo was shown to allow access to sensitive files via a ‘trivial’ exploit. The issue impacts LenovoEMC and Iomega branded network attached storage (NAS) devices and requires a firmware fix to patch the issue. This problem may have led to the leak of over 36 TB of sensitive financial information.


Patch Your Keyboard?!

Researchers are warning of a new class of “MouseJacking” attacks that impact various models of Logitech keyboards. For those who are unfamiliar, MouseJacking attacks allow an attacker to inject keystrokes into a wireless keyboard using a small radio device that costs less than $50.

This class of issue has been around since 2016, however a variety of new attacks have recently been discovered. It is recommended that users patch their devices now, and possibly again in the near future as more fixes become available.
