US Census Vulnerability Scan in 2019
Shrobel – Vulnerability researcher/Vulnerability Assessment Team member at Network Defense Partners, and a member of the US Census Cyber Threat Working Group.
In January of 2020, we at Network Defense Partners will be conducting vulnerability scans of the US Census software to identify vulnerabilities in the software and to highlight the risks associated with the software.
It is expected that these scans will take place over the course of this year in order to identify vulnerabilities in the software. From our initial scans, there is the perception that there is more than one vulnerability in the software and/or the Census data.
This scan will be conducted in accordance with the National Vulnerability Database as well as other resources published by F-Secure and The Hacker House. The scan is taking place at three locations in Pennsylvania and one in Maryland.
The scanning is being performed as part of this year’s US Census Cyber Threat Working Group. This team, comprised of F-Secure, the Hacker House, NDD and the US Census, will be actively engaging in collaborative outreach, research, security training, vulnerability assessment, and vulnerability remediation activities.
There are several things that NDD is doing to prepare for this year’s vulnerability scans, including the creation and delivery of training for security and vulnerability assessment experts, as well as preparation for the penetration testing effort.
In addition, NDD is in the process of setting up a vulnerability remediation plan, to be implemented in the coming months, which we will discuss in more detail in a subsequent vulnerability remediation post.
We will continue to update the post with the full details of the vulnerability scanning, risk assessment and remediation efforts.
In the last few weeks, NDD has been working with NDD and NDD’s partners to help them prepare for US Census vulnerability scanning in 2019.
The US Census is a federal government program that collects and processes information from all U.
Hackers breached the US Census Bureau in January 2020 via a Citrix ADC vulnerability.
- 1 Hackers breached the US Census Bureau in January 2020 via a Citrix ADC vulnerability.
“The Census Bureau is one of the most highly respected government agencies in America. But in the mid-2020s, with the 2020 Census set to go live in less than two months, hackers have been trying to access the information they need to know about the American public. The Bureau is highly secure, but it’s well known that there are still some holes in the chain of information. This week, we uncovered one of those holes, one that could have put the Bureau on the hook for an embarrassing $3. 9 million in lost data. A group calling itself “The Hacker Collective” has managed to get into the Bureau’s network, using a vulnerability in Citrix’s cloud computing and backup systems to take control of the Bureau’s networks and steal data,” said an official who spoke with Network World on condition of anonymity. “The Hacker Collective is exploiting some vulnerabilities in the Bureau’s backup and cloud systems to steal and leak sensitive information about the public, including addresses. ” A US Census Bureau spokesman said: “The Bureau is fully aware of this issue and has acted on it in accordance with the law. We have since implemented a number of remedial measures to protect the Bureau’s systems and our customers. ” The spokesman added that the Bureau has had no additional information about the breach. “The Bureau is fully aware of the issue and has acted on it in accordance with the law. We have since implemented a number of remedial measures to protect the Bureau’s systems and our customers,” the spokesman said. “These measures will not affect our ability to monitor the Bureau’s data, and our focus will remain on getting the Bureau back up and running. ” According to one Bureau administrator familiar with the breach, the hackers took control of at least one Bureau laptop. The administrator said one of the hackers, identified by the FBI as John Smith, was a software developer. He was, he said, the director of the Bureau’s information technology department. The Bureau spokesperson wouldn’t confirm whether Smith was in charge of the Bureau’s IT. “Citrix’s data is ours alone, and we have not and will not be sharing that information,” the spokesman said.

Tips of the Day in Network Security
In this column I share tips for cyber-physical systems (CPSs) such as data centers, servers, switches, routers, and storage appliances. In the first article of this series I discussed two different aspects of CISCO’s network architecture: physical security and physical security as an organizational design. In this installment I take up the second aspect: physical security as an organizational design. I discuss three different approaches to how CISCO designs its physical security: the security by design (SCD) model, the security by default (SBF) model, and the hybrid SCD/SBF approach.
In the CISCO’s physical security context there are two competing sets of objectives for a CISCO. The physical security objectives are: security for the physical infrastructure (for example, physical security measures to prevent unauthorized access to physical information), and security within the physical network (for example, security measures designed to protect a specific physical location or an area of interest). For the physical security objectives to be met, in addition to the physical infrastructure security measures, security within the physical network will also be required.
