After 2015 OPM data breach, agency failed to update security

Since its massive data breach in 2015, the Office of Personnel Management has failed to follow through on basic security recommendations, including changing passwords.

According to a report issued this week by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Office of Personnel Management has only implemented about 64% of the recommendations made following the OPM data breach over three years ago. The GAO said that the OPM failed to produce sufficient evidence that the remaining third of its recommendations were implemented. Some of the incomplete recommendations are considered basic security best practices — especially following a data breach.

The GAO said in its report that, following the OPM data breach, the agency had failed to fully demonstrate that it had reset all passwords, “install critical patches in a timely manner, periodically evaluate accounts to ensure privileged access is warranted, and assess controls on selected systems as defined in its continuous monitoring plan.”

The report also noted that OPM failed to implement other recommendations such as “avoiding the use of the same administrator accounts by multiple persons, implementing procedures governing the use of special privileges on a key computer, encrypting passwords while stored or in-transit across the network, and installing the latest versions of operating system software on network devices supporting a high-impact system.”

The GAO said that the OPM had implemented 51 out of 80 recommendations that they provided across four different reports that followed the OPM data breach.

The 2015 OPM data breach compromised around 22 million personal records — including 5.6 million fingerprints — and affected 4.2 million current and former employees of the U.S. federal government; it’s considered one of the worst breaches of the U.S. government in history. The information stolen included Social Security numbers, address histories, employment and education histories, health information, financial histories and criminal information.

The OPM data breach is believed to be the work of Chinese national Yu Pingan, who was arrested in Los Angeles in August 2017. Pingan allegedly used the Sakula malware to penetrate the network at the OPM, likely in two waves of attacks — the first in December 2014 and the second in April 2015.

The GAO report said that the “OPM has made progress in implementing our recommendations for improving its security posture” since the data breach was disclosed in 2015, “but further actions are needed.”

In other news:

  • A team of nine researchers has uncovered seven new attacks that use the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Some of the attacks — all transient execution attacks — have mitigations already in place and some do not. There are two new Meltdown attack variants and five new Spectre “mistraining strategies” and all of them affect Intel, AMD and ARM processor vendors. The research team consists researchers from Graz University of Technology, imec-DistriNet, KU Leuven and College of William and Mary — some of whom were part of the original research team that uncovered the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. In their paper, the research team noted that the industry has been focusing on defending only one attack surface related to Meltdown and Spectre, and that’s not the right approach. “This is highly problematic as the state-of-the-art provides only limited insight on residual attack surface and the completeness of the proposed defenses,” they said. Through their research, the team said, “We can still mount transient execution attacks that are supposed to be mitigated by rolled out patches.”
  • In Microsoft’s November 2018 Patch Tuesday, a new Windows zero-day vulnerability was addressed after it was discovered by Kaspersky Lab on Oct. 17, 2018. The vulnerability, CVE-2018-8589, was exploited by an APT group with its victims located in the Middle East. The exploit only targeted the 32-bit version of Windows 7 and it was executed by the first stage of a malware installer that was being used to gain additional necessary privileges for persistence on a victim’s system. While analysts do not know how the malware was delivered, Kaspersky reported that it had only been used in a limited number of attacks. Kaspersky has not said who is behind these attacks but mentioned it was being used by at least one APT group. This is the second zero-day vulnerability found this year in the 32-bit version of Windows 7 with the first one — CVE-2018-8453 — discovered by Kaspersky in August and patched by Microsoft in its October updates. Just like the second vulnerability, the first one also targeted users in the Middle East, but there is no clear connection between the two attacks.
  • On Tuesday, Nov. 13, the House passed a bill establishing a new cybersecurity agency, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2017 , now waiting for President Donald Trump’s signature, proposes to solidify the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as the main federal agency to oversee civilian cybersecurity. This means CISA would hold the same stature as other departments within DHS, such as the Secret Service. Earlier this year, the bill stalled in the Senate and was passed, but changes were made to the House-passed version, causing it to go back to the lower chamber for approval. The CISA will further be responsible for securing federal networks and protecting critical infrastructure from cyber and physical threats. The bill also calls for a rebranding of the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) — which currently acts as the main cybersecurity unit — to transform it into the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Agency. A report from The Hill noted that NPPD’s responsibilities have expanded since its inception, but more recently since taking the lead to protect digital election infrastructure from sabotage after the 2016 election.

Updated version of Windows 10 SDK now available with Visual Studio 15.9.1 – Windows Developer Blog

At Build 2018, I had the privilege of sharing with you some of the advancements for Microsoft 365 that centered on multi-sense and multi-device experiences. Today, developers can get the latest Windows 10 SDK and start using some of these amazing platform capabilities.
What’s in this update:

Windows UI Library (WinUI) allows you take advantage of the latest Fluent controls and styles for Windows 10 apps without having to wait for all your customers to update to the latest OS version. The WinUI nuget package is backward-compatible, down to Windows 10 version 1607 (Anniversary Update) and includes the same powerful, supported controls that Windows uses in its apps and experiences.
UWP XAML hosting API (Preview) allows ‘islands’ of UWP XAML UI elements to be hosted in applications built using non-UWP technologies such as Windows Forms, WPF, or C/C++ Win32, eliminating the need to re-write or re-package your application for UWP. We’ve created a set of WPF and WinForms wrappers for common UI elements that developers can use to save time.
Adaptive Cards 1.1 boosts feature additions such as Media Element and Action Icons and building cards easier with the new visual designer. Adaptive Cards is available in Outlook as Actionable Messages, in Cortana with Skills, and Teams through Azure Bot Service.
Graph Notifications (Preview) offers an enterprise-compliant, people-centric, and cross-platform notifications platform using Microsoft Graph. The tech preview supports iOS, Android, Windows, and the Graph Explorer.
Project Ink Analysis allows you to write applications that allow users to draw and express themselves and offers the capabilities to understand/recognize and make the ink more productive. This is the same technology we use to power Office today.
Hyper-V allows Android developers on Windows to enjoy a fast Android emulator running the latest Android APIs, all on Hyper-V. The minimum requirements to run this are Windows 10 version 1803 on an x86 based machine and Visual Studio v15.8 for IDE support.
It’s easier to start using the new Windows Machine Learning API, as it’s the same for both Win32 and UWP applications. New capabilities include: support for ONNX v1.2.2 models, converting FP32 datatypes in ONNX models to use FP16, support for Windows Server 2019, and improved evaluation times on the CPU and GPU.

Tune into Microsoft Connect () 2018 on December 4th to learn about the latest updates and advancements for Azure, Visual Studios, and Windows.

Getting Started with Windows Machine Learning – Windows Developer Blog

With the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Windows Machine Learning is out of preview and ready to become part of your AI toolbox. The Windows ML inference engine evaluates trained models locally on Windows devices, removing concerns of connectivity, bandwidth, and data privacy. This video series will help you understand how you can get started with Windows ML and explore the new APIs through the lens of Rufus the robot.

What is Windows Machine Learning and why should you care? Killian and Rosane walk through these questions and clarify the positioning and capabilities of this powerful AI inference engine.

Let’s jump to the code! Killian and Rosane work through the Windows ML MNIST tutorial and answer questions developers commonly ask along the way.

Killian and Rosane (with guest star Rufus!) discuss loading models and understanding how to determine a given model’s expected inputs and output features.

Killian and Paul (and our robot friend Rufus!) go over how to select a device to run Windows ML model evaluation and uncover what the default option really means.

Killian and Paul (and ROS-powered Rufus!) are ready to show you how to evaluate a model with Windows ML, but not before they cover the importance of sessions and bindings to get there.

What Windows ML topics should we cover next? Let us know what you think by tweeting (and following) @killianqueue!

Windows Subsystem for Linux: Getting Started

Microsoft continues to impress with its expanding support for Linux. The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) debuted unexpectedly and with little fanfare in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. It had severely limited capabilities and could only operate the Ubuntu distribution. Microsoft has worked steadily to strengthen the product with additional features and an expanding distribution library. Take it for a spin and see how Microsoft has changed the Windows/Linux equation from an either/or to a both/and.

What is Windows Subsystem for Linux?

The Windows Subsystem for Linux allows the Windows kernel to process system calls intended for the Linux kernel. WSL runs natively as a component of Windows — no virtualization or emulation layer necessary. That confused me at first, as most of the Microsoft employee names that I saw attached to this project also have at least some connection to the Hyper-V team. Although I don’t know how all that worked out behind the scenes, WSL does not require Hyper-V.

Windows Subsystem for Linux screenshot

That picture shows WSL running natively without Hyper-V. Take note of the output from screenfetch. Look at the value for OS and kernel.

Keep in mind that the word “subsystem” has a specific meaning. WSL provides only the capability of running programs compiled for a Linux environment — it does not provide a Linux environment or anything related to a distribution. In the same way that the print subsystem still requires you to buy a printer and the disk subsystem still requires you to attach storage, you need to bring a Linux distribution for WSL to use.

How to Install Windows Subsystem for Linux

In an elevated command prompt on any platform that includes WSL (DISM feature names are case-sensitive):

Alternatively, use the following line of PowerShell:

For Windows Server 2019 or a current version of Windows Server Semi-Annual Channel, you can also use this PowerShell:

You will need to restart your computer before you can use WSL.

How to Install Linux Distributions from the Microsoft Store

You won’t get much out of WSL without a distribution!

On systems that have access to the Microsoft Store, start off by searching for the keyword “Linux”:

download windows subsystem for linux

You will find a whole page of distributions (maybe more than in the screenshot by the time you read this):

run linux on windows microsoft store

Pick the one(s) that you like. They install like any other store application. They’ll get icons and show up in the Start menu.

How to Install Linux Distributions for WSL Without Using the Store

Not all Windows systems can access the Microsoft Store, and you might have reasons to avoid the Store on systems that can.

First, you need to select and download your distribution(s) of choice. You can find the list and instructions on Microsoft’s docs site. You can save these to a portable location for use on systems that you don’t want to access the Internet.

Once you have a distribution, you’ll need to unzip it. I’m sure you know how to do that in the GUI. In PowerShell, use Expand-ArchiveExpand-Archive -Path c:pathdownload.zip -DestinationPath C:existingoutputfolder

Check the contents of your extracted folder for an .exe or an .appx. If you have an .exe, you can use it on any system that runs WSL. If you have an .appx, you can only use it on systems that provide the full desktop experience (i.e., not Windows Server SAC).

For .exe distributions, run the .exe that you found:  C:existingoutputfoldernewdistro.exe

For .appx distributions, install the package from PowerShell:  Install-AppxPackage -Path C:existingoutputfolderdistroname_ext.appx. Your new distribution will have icons in the Start menu and function like a normal application.

Additional Reading for WSL Installation

I have provided only a partial-page-length crash course on WSL installation. Microsoft has more detailed instructions spread across various pages. You might find them a bit terse, but functional.

I have not yet attempted to install anything except distributions provided through Microsoft’s links. Last time I tried, Kali only shipped in appx which prevented me from using it on Windows Server SAC. Someday I would like to try the directions in the last link to repackage it. If you have already done so, I’d like to hear from you.

Running WSL for the First Time

As soon as you initiate a newly-installed distribution, it will complete installation inside the environment:

ubuntu

Once it starts, you’ll provide a username and password combination:

unix user account

It will take you to a prompt with your new username @ the name of the owning Windows system. From now on, when you start this distribution, it will take you to that prompt.

First Steps with WSL

From here, you have your selected distribution running in WSL. Hopefully, you know how to use Linux or you won’t enjoy this experience.

First, let’s have a bit of “fun”. All of the demonstrations I’ve seen for WSL include a shot from screenfetch. I never knew how to use screenfetch and they never demo that part. The distributions that I’ve used will download screenfetch from their repositories, but it never works for me. Try these commands, substituting the package manager call (apt-get here) for whatever works on your system as necessary (borrowed from a Tecmint article, but improved to work):

From now on, anytime you run screenfetch, you get a little colorized ASCII art showing off your distribution in WSL:

screenfetch

Transferring Files Between Windows and WSL

WSL lives in your account’s AppData folder. If you dig, you’ll find it. Do not modify anything that you find there! The filesystems that Linux use have many more different rules than Microsoft’s. In order to keep everything flowing, WSL does all the work necessary to make the distribution see the file system that it expects. If you make changes from the Windows side, you have no guarantee that the distribution will continue to function.

Instead, operate from within WSL. It mounts your Windows partitions from the root level so that you can move files in and out easily.

View your filesystems with df:

The traditional directory and file manipulation tools work just fine, although I’d stray from doing things like running chmod against files on the Windows side. Also, WSL cannot work with files or directories unavailable to the user account it runs under.

Copy files in and out of WSL as necessary, but avoid unnecessary cleverness.

Notes on Using WSL

A few additional notes on WSL:

  • WSL was designed for developer use. It does not replace a proper production Linux system.
  • You will not find a lot of support. You can look up and report issues on the WSL Github page. The Github page exists only for reporting and aggregating other links. Microsoft did not open source WSL.
  • You can use X servers with varying levels of success. I recommend starting on the Awesome WSL page for more information.
  • Do not forget the “Subsystem” in WSL. You get the alternative shell and the ability to run executables intended for the Linux kernel. However, your operating system is still Windows. You will not have luck with deeper things, such as daemons.
  • Microsoft continues work on WSL, so all things may change. They might even get those daemons to operate.
  • Multiple WSL instances have simply died on me. I do not have any idea why. I would not consider WSL a completely finished, stable product. If you need a “real” Linux environment, use a full virtual machine.
  • Uninstalling a distribution wipes it out. If you need to save anything, do that in advance.

Striking Out on Your Own

Microsoft has no set purpose for WSL. Like many other ideas of its kind, the community tends to find uses that never occurred to the developers. I have found a handful of my own uses, some of which I intend to share in future articles. I look forward to hearing what you do with yours.

At Acquia Engage, CTO talks of open source WCM, Red Hat buy

In 2000, Acquia CTO Dries Buytaert created his own web platform, Drupal, which became an open source web content management system. And, in turn, he launched Acquia, which became the commercially supported instance of the Drupal WCM — similar to how Red Hat became commercial open source Linux.

We sat down at the Acquia Engage user conference in Austin, Texas, to discuss the open source WCM vendor’s recent e-commerce partnerships and how IBM’s $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat demonstrates the continuing commercial viability of open source projects.

At the beginning, coding the original Drupal WCM, could you imagine it evolving into an experience platform enabling e-commerce, or hosting your own open source WCM cloud?

Dries Buytaert: No, [because] 18 to 19 years ago, mobile didn’t exist. Google was a private company. I remember AT&T launching text messaging a month or so before. Social media didn’t exist. I think less than 10% of the world had internet.

I started Drupal; it was very much an experimental platform for me, just to have some fun. I was fascinated with the web, and I didn’t have any grand plans. Obviously, that changed over time. I made it open source, [and] it started growing, slowly.

Drupal started to grow, so I started my plans for Drupal and [followed] my conviction of us being onto something. We made a bet-the-farm bet on cloud [in about 2008], and that turned out to be the right bet, because we pioneered a new business model for open source, delivering [it] in the cloud. And a lot of companies are doing that now — Elastic Path, MongoDB — and I’m very proud of that.

Acquia was born open source, but also born in the cloud. And, today, that’s the killer combination.

Dries Buytaert, founder, AcquiaDries Buytaert

How is the general movement toward building memorable digital customer experiences influencing Acquia’s open source WCM product roadmap?

Buytaert: These are like megatrends — 10 years ago, websites were static. [There was] almost no interactive content; everyone got the same content, [and] there was no integration between the content management and other applications.

Fast-forward to today, there [are] very dynamic experiences. Content is becoming very personalized, and content management systems are highly integrated. It’s not unusual to see content management integrated with five or 10 or more other technologies.

These are long-term trends, and I think they are driven by customer expectations changing. They expect different experience, and that’s a very powerful voice. I believe it’s a fundamental truth that customers want much more simplicity — more contextualized, personalized — and it’s actually really hard to do under the hood. You have to make the systems more complex to make the experience simpler.

In our roadmap, we’re building a lot more complexity through integrations with marketing technologies; we capture more data, so we can drive these experiences; headless; different front-end technologies; [and] different channels you have to manage. These are things [in the past] people didn’t have to worry about, but it’s exciting, because you can use these technologies to reimagine customer experiences.

From the outside, it looks like your recent Elastic Path and BigCommerce e-commerce partnerships were a direct response to Adobe’s acquisition of Magento — picking up their open source customers who might not want to pay the commercial license fees they’ll be paying now and beckoning them also to change to Acquia’s open source WCM. What fueled these Acquia partnerships?

Buytaert: There are a couple of different angles. One of the things we’ve seen is that consumers expect better shopping experiences. E-commerce companies realize that, to drive more transactions, they need to build more compelling shopping experiences. That means more content-rich.

You have to make the systems more complex to make the experience simpler.
Dries BuytaertCTO, Acquia

Think of Nike.com. Instead of a grid of all the shoes, they have pages of videos, athletes, athletes sweating [laughs]. It’s an emotional, content-rich experience with images. And, oh, by the way, you can buy these shoes versus boring grids. That’s a driver in the market we’re trying to capitalize on.

The other thing, from a technology point of view, is that e-commerce [vendors], for better or worse, have invested most of their R&D into building better transaction engines and not content management. Even the largest ones ship with lightweight content management. They all realize they aren’t equipped to build these content-rich, compelling shopping experiences.

So, there’s a huge pull in the market — customers coming to us — with Demandware, Magento, whatever, and they want to build a better content experience on top of it. And they don’t want to touch their e-commerce engine with a 10-foot pole, because sometimes they’re transacting hundreds of millions of dollars, because it’s a lot of risk. They want to try new things, like social media migration, personalization, all these things, all the time — and go faster with experimentation.

Since the IBM-Red Hat acquisition, have you been getting any calls?

Buytaert: [Laughs]. No.

[The IBM-Red Hat acquisition] is a great thing for us. I feel like this year, IBM buying Red Hat, MuleSoft going to Salesforce, Magento going to Adobe … these are all software giants of the world, and they’ve all bought open source businesses. And I put an emphasis on businesses, not just open source projects. These are not acquisitions that live under somebody’s desk. These are not mainstream products that these companies sell. The fact that these large software giants are buying these large open source businesses just validates open source even more.

I’ve been an evangelist and promoter of open source for 20 years, for my entire professional career. This is just another kind of tipping point, or milestone, for open source. IBM spent $34 billion. Guess what they’re going to do? They’re going to sell the hell out of that to their customers. IBM’s customers are the largest in the world, so what will happen is that all the largest customers in the world are going to get extremely comfortable with open source. That makes our job at Acquia easier.
