Apache Software Foundation has patched a remote code execution vulnerability affecting the Jakarta Multipart parser in Apache Struts.

Administrators need to update the popular Java application framework or put workarounds in place because the vulnerability is actively being targeted in attacks.The issue affects Apache Struts versions 2.3.5 through 2.3.31 and versions 2.5 through 2.5.10.

The presence of vulnerable code is enough to expose the system to attack—the web application doesn’t need to implement file upload for attackers to exploit the flaw, said researchers from Cisco Talos.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Region needs to skill-up, says minister Singapore is slinging S$10 million (around US$7.2 million) into a fund to help infosec in ASEAN (the Association of South East Asian Nations). According to Singapore's Today Online, the money is for “resources, expertise and training”. The program was announced by Singapore's minister for communications and information, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, during the ASEAN Ministerial Conference on Cybersecurity yesterday, October 11. The money is to be spent over five years, with activities including workshops and seminars, and will also bring technical experts together with ASEAN policy officers, diplomats and prosecutors. According to the Jakarta Post and the Straits Times, Dr Ibrahim said the region's governments are vulnerable to the “full spectrum” of threats, including cybercrime, espionage, and “other malicious activities”. That's backed up by studies from outside Asia.
In August, Mandiant published its first study into the region, finding that South East Asian businesses were laggards in security.

For example, that report said, companies in the region don't know how to protect networks against lateral movement once an attacker has penetrated the perimeter. It wouldn't be surprising to find government capabilities in ASEAN are broadly in line with those of businesses in the region. He also urged ASEAN members to ramp up their involvement in international efforts such as the Singapore-based Interpol Global Complex for Innovation. ®
Traffic-stopping hack could mean six years inside under Indonesian 'Immoral act' law Indonesian police have arrested an “IT expert” in South Jakarta after he reconfigured a giant LED video screen to show porn. The mine's-bigger-than-yours grumble-flick was shown in Wijaya last week, according to The Jakarta Post. The man, identified only as “SAR”, was arrested at the offices of an unnamed company in the South Jakarta suburb of Senopati, police chief inspector-general Mochamad Iriawan told the Post. It seems that a security bungle by the screen's operators gave him access: he told the police that he'd managed to take a photograph of the system's username and password, and used that to log in and then went about his business. The police wouldn't confirm that to the Post, because they've so far been unable to find the photograph on his phone. Indonesia's Tribune News (here, but it's got the kind of site script that hangs browsers) says SAR was traced via his IP address.

Both the Post and the Tribune call him an “IT expert”, but someone who makes himself so easy to catch sounds more like “a mug” to Vulture South. The charges aren't trivial: “SAR” will be accused of “immoral acts” under Indonesia's criminal code, and of breaches of the Electronic Information and Transactions Law, and faces a maximum six years in the slammer and a billion-rupiah fine (about US$75,000). News outlet Berita Malam captured the naughtiness at 1:05 in the video below. Youtube Video Well: as a display of public porn it far outbids a mere refrigerator. ®
Vice President of Indonesia opened Communic Indonesia 2016 eventJakarta, Indonesia, 8 September 2016: The organiser of Indonesia’s first major ICT event – Communic Indonesia 2016 – today announced that the inaugural show was a huge hit – with 5,691 trade visitors and 266 exhibitors from 28 countries taking part in the show across four days. The Vice President of Indonesia opens Communic Indonesia 2016 Hosted by PT.

The show was supported by Indonesia’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and opened by Indonesia’s Vice President H. Muhammad Jusuf Kalla.

This created a huge buzz around the exhibition and the conference, with a number of companies such as Telkomsel and CDN Solutions also making exclusive industry announcements. “The feedback we have received from the visitors and exhibitors of Communic Indonesia has been extremely positive, especially in relation to bringing such a huge and diverse technology show to the region” said Victor Wong, Project Director at Singapore Exhibition Services. “This is the first event of its kind in Indonesia and the popularity of it shows just how relevant it is to the region. We look forward to welcoming even more visitors to next year’s show.” The show’s exhibitors – including Samsung, AsiaSat and Infinet Wireless – came from 28 different countries including, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
Several solutions showcased were claimed to be critical to accelerating the development of Indonesia’s ICT ecosystem to fulfil the aim of becoming Southeast Asia’s largest digital economy by 2020. In addition to the exhibition, Communic Indonesia also featured a two-day conference with three main tracks; Broadband and IoT, E-Commerce and Satcom, each including plenary sessions, keynote speakers and panel discussions.

Day one alone pulled in 1,926 visitors to the Expo, with the most popular panel sessions and presentations, including ‘Efficient Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Deployment’ hosted by Paul Macaulay, President of the FTTH Council Asia-Pacific and the ‘Power Hub: Provisioning Broadband Networks in Asia’ panel, moderated by Heru Sutadi, Executive Director of the Indonesia ICT Institute. The ICT Summit was co-located with Broadcast Indonesia – an International Digital Multimedia and Entertainment Technology Exhibition & Conference – which provided a platform for top industry leaders to network in one of South-East Asia’s most up and coming markets. Following the success of this year’s show, dates for next year’s show have already been confirmed.

Communic Indonesia 2017 will be held at The Jakarta International Expo, in Kemayoran, from October 25-27, 2017 and will again be co-located with Broadcast Indonesia. - ENDS - If you would like to connect with us on social media, please visit the below links.
