Configuration vulnerabilities can also have serious impacts on enterprise security. In this video, Mike Chapple explains the impact of misconfigurations, weak and default configurations, improperly configured accounts, and cryptographic vulnerabilties.
- [Instructor] Configuration vulnerabilities…can also have serious impacts on enterprise security.…A few simple errors in a system configuration…can result in very significant security vulnerabilities…that an attacker can exploit…to gain access to sensitive information or systems.…One common mistake that IT staff make…is taking a system directly from a manufacturer…and installing it on their network…without modifying the default configuration.…This is especially true in the case of devices…that contain embedded computers but are not commonly managed…as part of the enterprise IT infrastructure.…
These include copiers, building control systems,…research equipment…and other devices that come directly from vendors.…The default configurations on these devices…may contain open firewalls, guest accounts,…default passwords or other serious security issues.…IT staff should always verify the security of devices…before connecting them to the network.…System, application, and device configurations vary widely…and can often be very complicated.…
