Featured Flaws & Big Breaches
- Cisco kicks off 2020 with 12 CVEs in Cisco Data Center Network Manager, including three critical authentication bypass vulnerabilities. — Not likely common software among the DevOps crowd, but the variety of vulns reads like a review of the OWASP Top 10 list. Looks like 2020 will keep plenty of app flaws alive and well.
Cloud, Code & Controls
- Python is dead. Long live Python! — Version 3 from here on out. (Unless you really have to delay until April.)
- Why Cloud, Collaboration Breed Insider Threats — Automation still needs access controls.
Learning & Tools
- Breaking Down the OWASP API Security Top 10, Part 1 and Part 2 — Two older articles that serve as good reminders about the OWASP API Security Top 10. It’s a more relevant and meaningful list than its OWASP Top 10 predecessor.
Food for Thought
- Facebook will stop mining contacts with your 2FA number
- 6 Security Team Goals for DevSecOps in 2020
- 7 security incidents that cost CISOs their jobs — Application security has consequences, but the message here isn’t about job security.
