Second half of the 20th century saw the dawn of the information age. Now, at the beginning of 21st century, and especially with the proliferation of IoT devices and social media usage, we are seeing the dawn of misinformation.
Our team does extensive work with the retail industry. To give back, we host a living attack tree, free to download. These resources are updated yearly with the most modern and impactful threats, attack surfaces, attack scenarios, and exploitable vulnerabilities our team sees.
Penetration Testing, frequent misrepresentation of its results, and the effect on the security infrastructure. The feasibility of exploitation should be the main focus of penetration testing, and it is at the core of VerSprite’s testing methodology: solving for the probability variable in a risk analysis of realistic attack patterns.

IoT devices have embedded their way into our daily lives. From appliances, smart home systems, trackers, and doorbells to CPAP machines. We look at the security risks these IOT devices can bring into your life and how you can protect yourself from the risks.
To summarize again briefly, syscall is an instruction that lowers the privilege level of the currently running application to 0 and allows the program to be performed in higher privilege using the required registers. In this section, we look at the Syscall instruction at the assembly level and try to analyze it in detail.

As we discussed in the previous parts, the Linux Kernel is a collection of code written entirely in C. This is important to keep in mind while we are dealing with the attack floats because the vulnerabilities found in the Linux Kernel can be found in any executable file written using the C programming language.

VerSprite’s Offensive Security team (OffSec) has an extensive history of security testing gaming and fintech organizations. We were hired to push the limits of ZEBEDEE’s application, studying each vulnerability in an in-depth whitebox penetration test. Find out how their developers studied our pentesters in real-time and used it to further fortify their app in our case study.
Retail is one of the top industries targeted by cyber attacks and physical attacks. VerSprite's Threat Intelligence Group have been tracking patterns of cyber attacks and physical attacks and compiled our findings into one attack tree. In this article, VerSprite uses an attack tree to map the top methods, motives, and threat organizations the financial industry should be aware of.
