What is the problem?
According to Risk Based Security’s ‘The 2019 Mid-Year Vulnerability Report’, over 34% (3771) of all the vulnerabilities reported in the first half of 2019 do not have a documented solution. This can be due to lack of a patch release by the vendor or due to lack of information regarding the flaw.
Risk Based Security’s vulnerability report highlighted that 11,092 vulnerabilities have been aggregated in the first half of 2019.
The bottom line
Organizations need to protect all assets in their network as threat actors can exploit non-critical devices to infiltrate their internal network. As attackers continue to exploit the ever-expanding attack surface with new tactics, techniques, and procedures, it is essential for organizations to establish a strong defense against all the known vulnerabilities.
