FTW Successfully Fights ‘Shellshock’ and Other Website Vulnerabilities
NEW YORK, NY – October 2, 2014 – NYI, a New York company specializing in customized technology infrastructure solutions, releases news that its Fault Tolerant Web (FTW) service, successfully protects against bugs, web attacks and other online threats. FTW was tested most recently with the onset of Shellshock, a severe software bug that can allow hackers unauthorized access or privileges on computer systems.
With millions of documented web attacks over the past week, security experts are saying the Shellshock virus targets “Bash,” a command line shell typically used by programmers. This particular virus allows hackers to issue commands and gain complete control over affected machines. The National Vulnerability Database, the U.S. government repository of standards based vulnerability management data, rates Shellshock at 10 out of 10 for severity.
“Since Shellshock is relatively easy to exploit, anyone running websites with affected systems should take action immediately,” states Mark Staudinger, VP Systems Architecture for NYI. “Our FTW service has successfully blocked Shellshock exploit attempts and since the virus was first announced, NYI added additional security policies to better protect against any variations on the type of attacks already seen. FTW-enabled customers can rest easier, knowing that their servers are protected externally.”
FTW was designed to protect against online threats, provide DDoS mitigation and protection, as well as block web exploits before they reach the server level. The service also dramatically improves website performance and scalability with 30 percent or more improvement across key website performance metrics.
