Quotes

..."We have an extensive internal process of vulnerability checks as well as compliance, legal and continuity of business testing," says the director. "From time to time we come across one of the bank's mobile apps that has been published without going through our internal checkout process. Perhaps the app was created by a department or third party that was unaware of the formal controls we have. RiskIQ has been very effective in identifying these apps so that we can work with the internal businesses to make sure they go through the process."
"Similar to having a business strategy to improve efficiency, a well-thought-out security strategy should also improve current protection practices that achieve long-term benefits. The incidents observed during this quarter further establish the need for a more comprehensive approach to security."
"An attacker could create a malicious Microsoft Office file that invokes Windows Media Player and exploits this vulnerability. Exploitation could execute any code using the same user rights as the logged in user."
"We've seen more and more updates classified as ‘security feature bypass' over the past 12 months and it's great to see Microsoft fixing these issues. Many of these patches resolve known ASLR [Address Space Layout Randomisation] and DEP [Data Execution Prevention] bypasses, that exploit authors use to successfully exploit other vulnerabilities" he said
