Intercom systems by one of the largest global manufacturers, Aiphone, were found to be plagued by an information disclosure flaw. It could be exploited in a way that an organization may not be aware of any unauthorized access to its premises. A software update isn’t addressing the issue, users need hardware replacement instead. Meanwhile, a new malware variant for Typhon Stealer made the headlines that now exhibits much more effective anti-analysis techniques and enhanced information-stealing features.
Breaches continue to inflict pain on firms in different ways. Of late, Russia's leading urban mobility service Whoosh blurted out personal data for roughly 7.2 million customers.
