Beware of Security by Press Release

Published on 10th August, 2017, 4:40 PM

On Wednesday, the security industry once again witnessed an all-too-familiar cycle: I call it "Security by press release." It goes a bit like this: A security firm releases a report claiming to have unearthed a major flaw in a competitor's product; members of the trade press uncritically republish the claims without adding much clarity or waiting for responses from the affected vendor; blindsided vendor responds in a blog post showing how the issue is considerably less dire than originally claimed. At issue are claims made by Denver-based security company DirectDefense, which published a report this week warning that Cb Response -- a suite of security tools sold by competitor Carbon Black (formerly Bit9) -- was leaking potentially sensitive and proprietary data from customers who use its product.
