How many networking vendors - like Juniper - have been selling devices with backdoors attackers could use to intercept and decrypt communications? Some networking giants say they've launched code reviews. But why are eight vendors staying silent?
Networking giant Fortinet warns that more products than it initially suspected have a hardcoded password that attackers could abuse to remotely gain backdoor access to vulnerable devices. But why did the flaws take so long to be found?
The Ukrainian energy sector is being targeted by fresh phishing attacks, the country's computer emergency response team warns. But it's not clear who's behind those campaigns, or a recent malware infection at Kiev's main airport.
Networking vendor Fortinet refutes a researcher's assertions that there is an SSH "backdoor" in the FortiOS firmware that runs its devices. Many experts say that while the patched flaw looks unintentional, it might still serve as a backdoor.
