By: TheCodingExperts. com, Apr 15, 2020 at 02:41 AM Posted in Related Articles: Threats & Tools The latest CISA threat has been a security threat that’s been plaguing devices since the beginning of the year, with many of the latest attacks targeting the Pulse Secure platform. According to CISA, hackers have had the ability to target Pulse Secure devices for a long time, but with the new CISA patch they’re not being as successful. CISA researchers have released a new patch, which, among other things, removes the ability of the latest malware to compromise Pulse Secure devices. The new patch also removes the ability of the malware to be installed remotely, and the new patch also includes an additional code change. The new patch is now available on GitHub. However, as of April 20, it remains available for download only. CISA researchers have been known to release another patch to update the malware on compromised devices, but this patch has not yet been developed. While it’s unlikely that CISA will release patched devices, the new patch also prevents users from being infected by the new malware. The patches to remove malware from your devices is something that the company is all in favor of. Here’s what you can do to help us stop cybercriminals from stealing your valuable information.
“There is no question that the threat landscape is more complex than ever, with new devices and platforms being introduced every day. As a result, cybercriminals have a greater incentive for hackers to steal your confidential and personal data from your device, and CISA is committed to helping them take control.
The malware can infect devices through a vulnerability in the system software. According to CISA, hackers have been able to install the malware while it’s running, and once the malware is installed, the device may not reboot. CISA researchers have also been seen to have a high amount of success at removing malware from devices infected with malware.
“The threat landscape is becoming significantly more complex as we continue to see more devices with security patches and updates delivered.

CISA Observations on stolen Pulse Connect Secure Devices
In recent months, two major thefts of personal computers (PCs) connected to PCs have occurred.
These connected devices were stolen from retailers in the United States and Europe.
Both thefts have affected PC users in the United States.
In the first, a theft of a $350 laptop with a stolen Apple MacBook Air computer was reported in Las Vegas.
It appears that the thief used a stolen credit card associated with the laptop and took the laptop with him.
In the second, a theft of a Dell computer in the US, which had been stolen from a Walmart store, was reported in Las Vegas.
It is not known if any of the stolen PCs were connected to the two thefts or if they were stolen by a criminal other than the alleged criminals.
This month, the FBI issued a new alert for the theft of laptops with stolen USB drives (PCs or laptops with USB ports).
From March to November, the FBI and the Justice Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) have recovered over 1,000 USB drives from stolen laptops, USB drives and external hard drives.
These new alerts are based on an active investigation into stolen laptop thefts.
The USB drive thefts are being reported in the US, EU and Canada.
The FBI has issued alerts for these thefts and they involve computer systems that were sold, leased, returned or received stolen on stolen property in the US.
The alerts follow a prior FBI alert in October 2013 that included a separate category – USB drive thefts – and included the number of USB drives identified associated with the USB drive thefts.
