D-link routers security flaw grants easy access

D-link popular routers

D-link stated, that they will address their security leak – which enables unauthorized users to reconfigure router settings without the need for username and password – by the end of October. In other terms, the devices came with a security backdoor by factory default, which enables login bypass through it’s web interface.

Craig Heffner, the security expert for Tactical Network Solutions discovered and published this vulnerability. The security bypass is basically very simple: Your browser’s user agent string needs to be reset to “xmlset_roodkcableoj28840ybtide” character series (without quotes) and you already granted access to the router from local network, or – if remote administration is enabled – even from the internet.

The character series spelled backwards is “edit by 04882 joel backdoor”

Kerberos extended security contract with IFC

Maintenance

Kerberos maintenance: peace of mind

We are proud to announce, after supplied security systems to IFC in 2011-2012 (PANASONIC premium CCTV, NESS alarm system etc) Kerberos set extensions for the Security Service contract, hereby earned award and signed a permanent security maintenance agreement with International Finance Corporation for the Vientiane HQ. Within the agreement IFC will be provided with quarterly maintenance for the systems including upgrades, firmware updates, cleanings and settings as per required in continuous cooperation with related departments at IFC. With the maintenance arrangements no breakdown should occur but in case of any event Kerberos technical team will appear in no time to avert the failure and grant operation. The usual support and maintenance services are also included just as the  assistance and representation of interests for any security system related event.

The maintenance arrangements include exceptional care for operation of each and every equipment and the network as a whole those have been supplied previously, including also repairs and smaller adjustments if required. Spare parts are available in our Vientiane stock for most cases, however in case  involvement of the manufacturer is required Kerberos is to provide appropriate replacement units until the repair is done – therefore the systems are to be always in perfect condition and in non-stop operation.

How NOT TO install security

How NOT TO...

Is this the way?

After facing countless bad events, shocking stories and sad customers coming from competitor companies, we decided to launch a new topic with photos with pure educational intention because of system conditions and business behavior of some private companies we noticed to spread in Laos. The common aspect of theses stories – even in the best case – is the poor quality that can be tracked back to the performance of the supplier company itself . So called “security companies” – some of them well known in Laos -  still seem not to be aware what are the basics for security and electric installations, putting the clients in an awkward situation and disposing them to even more risk they faced before the possession of some systems – more sadly these uncareful installers or traders are hereby pulling the reputation of the whole local security service industry very deep, including those few who try to perform well. We should understand in case we security firms and teams will not be unitedly able to perform quality works for the customers and to respect at least the basic operation conditions for each and every systems, we will loose our customers and we let foreign companies to come over the borders and expand their competition strengthened services in this country.
