30% of data breaches involved internal actors, which shows how human error still contributes to vulnerabilities. Your people are still one of the weakest links in your security strategy, so continued training and awareness is crucial – especially with the rise of remote working.
One common term that is often seen in CVEs relating to the heap is "use-after-free". The use-after-free vulnerability exploits a mistake made by the original author of a software and can result in devastating effects that range from remote code execution to the leaking of sensitive data. In this blog I'll explain what a use-after-free vulnerability is and how it works...
