In my Attacking and Defending a Linux System – Morpheus Edition webinar, we attacked a new Linux Boot-to-Root system called “Morpheus:1.” I encourage you to watch it or, if you’re feeling adventurous, to download the virtual machine and follow along, performing the attack yourself. In this blog, I will walk through a Linux attack path to demonstrate how attackers look to exploit vulnerabilities, then I will explore several ways to break the cyberattack chain.
Learn practical, actionable tips on how to solve the multicloud management conundrum, how to keep the security risks as low as possible, and how to get management to approve the necessary budget.
This blog identifies protections against the LightBasin (UNC1945) attack and maps them to the SANS CIS Controls, and also detail how two BeyondTrust products, Password Safe and Privilege Management for Unix & Linux address help protect against the attack.

The SSD Advisory in macOS Finder RCE, discovered last month by independent security researcher, Park Minchan, underscores the need for having application control on macOS. This macOS Finder system vulnerability allows remote attackers to trick users into running arbitrary commands.
While giving end users admin privileges enables increased efficiency in the short-term, it drastically increases organizations’ exposure to online threats. Since least privilege is a core tenet of zero trust, this trend of loosening privilege controls runs afoul of zero trust principles—even as organizations increasingly embrace the zero trust mindset.
To better grasp the top threats and cybersecurity trends seen as impacting public sector agencies now and over the next three years, BeyondTrust surveyed 200 senior IT and security professionals across the public sector. Survey respondents shed some fascinating insights on public sector security trends, concerns, threat actors, and technology priorities. Last week, we published the results and analysis in our 2021 Cybersecurity Trends in Government Report.
In typical computing environments, an identity represents a one-to-one relationship between a carbon-based life and their digital presence. Their digital presence, however, can have multiple accounts, multiple credentials, and an infinite number of entitlements in electronic format.
BeyondInsight Discovery Tool, is a standalone, simple-to-use BeyondTrust utility that you can securely leverage to scan networks and systems to uncover privileged accounts, credentials, and remote access tools, as well as misconfigurations (i.e. user accounts with admin credentials, and service accounts using user accounts for access) that can create risk.
The annual cybersecurity trends prediction season is once again upon us. We come armed with our top prognostications for 2022, as well as a glimpse into what we presage happening 5 years from now.
Two recent cyber threat reports published by government agencies in Australia and New Zealand reaffirm the ongoing challenges faced by IT security teams across the region. Both reports also highlight the best practices urgently needed, such as privileged access management (PAM), to mitigate the threats. This blog will distill some key takeaways from the two reports.
