Introduction

Because everybody needs verifiable Cybersecurity

From governments all around the world, to Fortune 500 companies, down to the mobile in your pocket.

Real cybersecurity is built up from open & secure solutions that can be verified by a third party to (a) be correctly implemented and (b) not to have any strings attached. No buts or maybes.

Picture your companies / your devices turning into spy-machines or ransomeware problems.

From mobiles to laptops, servers, third party cloud or container solutions, TV's, firewalls, routers, IoT devices etc. Externals having full access to your client data, your mails, calendars, social media accounts...

The more users any closed source solutions has, the bigger the bad boys & girls interested in that system usually is. And If something is "free", then you might very well be the product. Be careful.

Do you value your companies reputation? Do you value your customers and the data that you store about them? What if we told you that you might be leaking loads of information right now...

Zen-mode Solutions stand-alone business infrastructure is silent and secure. Your information does not leave your hosts unless you want it to. And when it does, it's encrypted multiple times on multiple layers. Our solutions are open, secure and stable. Let's sit down and verify it together.

IT SECURITY & BLIND TRUST

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

— Alber Einstein

Below you will find many links which are both interesting and disturbing at the same time. If you are paying attention, they should change the way you think and act.

IT security - A never ending game of cat & mouse

As can be seen from the links below: All systems have design issues / bugs [ 1 ]

Some of these "ticking time bombs" can be regarded as minor problems, but the most dangerous bugs can in skillful hands be turned in to backdoors (perhaps even on clean / out-of-the-box devices).

Hidden & unpatched extra OSes inside your CPU

The worst kind of bugs are so low-level that even the host OS (*) has no way of knowing that an external entity might have taken control over your box (since they are running on different RING / hardware - level). Example:

* Operating System: Linux, Windows, MacOS, *BSD etc. The same is true for any Antivirus / helper programs that you may try. The problem is right infront of you and it has full access to everything, yet it's completely invisible.

More precisely, in their report Replace your exploit-ridden firmware with a Linux kernel (Oct 27, 2017) Ronald Minnich and his fellow researchers' discovered that Intel has since 2008 been shipping 2½ hidden OSes inside their CPU's (from 4th Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 Haswell onwards) [ 1 ]

Intel's Management Engine: MINIX is running on three separate x86 cores on modern chips. There, it's running:

  • TCP/IP networking stacks (4 and 6)
  • File systems
  • Drivers (disk, net, USB, mouse)
  • Web servers

This is worth repeating: A hidden and unpatched closed-source variant of a microkernel OS which was not designed with military-grade security in mind is running on all Intel systems with full hardware access + IP connectivity + a web server. It survices reboots and can access your hardware even with it's turned off but plugged in. "Only Intel" knows what it's doing and it cannot be removed - What could possible go wrong?

And no, simply switching from Intel to AMD or some other closed source companies CPU will only change the hidden OS to another variant.

Following the stream of bugs

You don't need to take our words for this, simply follow the fat stream of bugs reported by the vedors themselves on the Bugtraq mailing list and similar systems. Another way to follow your technology providers "official problem list" is via monitori that particular vendors Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures or CVE lists:

Then search for wanted-system-X (shodan.io) and off you go...

Poor cybersecurity + big userbase = interesting target

The more users a given solution has, the bigger the interest in it's "design warts" also is. Think: Huge criminal gain: Finding a single Critical Remote Execution bug in solution which is used by multiple millions of people (Example: The Meltdown & Spectre CPU bugs (Intel, AMD, ARM, and Qualcomm, going back to at least 2011), NSA's leaked Windows "EternalBlue" bug / backdoor which got turned into new Ransomeware tool - Over 150+ countries hit and 230.000+ infected hosts. Wiki info: EternalBlue, Petya Malware, WannaCry Ransomware)...

If we are lucky, scary bug-X requires some additional changes on top of the defaut-setup-of-Y to work. This helps to mitigate the problem (you "are safe" as long as you haven't done XYZ changes or installed extra application Z). But if we are unlucky, we might be dealing with a Critical Remote Execution Bug which works on clean / out-of-the-box devices. Think: The moment you turn on your (new) firewall, router, server, laptop, mobile, TV, IoT-child-camera, ZYX - You are owned.

CONCLUSION

 
 
Our strength & opportunity lies in (a) acknowledging that there are mines (b) knowing their position (c) understanding what makes them tick and (d) thus having the knowledge to swim past them with a smile on our face...

So relax, the techno analogy from above is more true than you may think:
Work wisely and use open & verifiable solutions and you'll be fine.

CYBERSECURITY SIMPLIFIED

  1. Less is more  (the less apps & tools & devices you have, the fewer problems you have)
  2. Go controlled & hardened open source  (thus removing most default exploits...)
  3. Get to know your trusted open solutions + keep monitoring them + stay up to date
  4. Work wisely (OPSEC) and stay alert - Secure by default
