100 GbE switch market shifting to large enterprises

White box makers are losing sales of 100 GbE switches to proprietary manufacturers as more large enterprises replace end-of-life 40 GbE systems with the faster technology.

Arista Networks has done particularly well in the 100 GbE market as the group of potential buyers expands beyond the top four internet companies — Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook — to include large enterprises and second- and third-tier cloud providers, said the Dell’Oro Group, based in Redwood City, Calif.

Arista, which has sold primarily to tier-one internet companies, has managed to increase its market share despite the change in buyers. From 2017 to 2018, Arista’s share of 100 GbE revenue increased from 32% to 33%.

“They’re killing it,” said Sameh Boujelbene, an analyst at Dell’Oro.

Cisco’s smaller market slice rose from 25% to 27%, while white box makers lost ground as their portion fell from 25% to 21%. Those companies include Quanta, Celestica, Accton, Delta, Inventec and Foxconn. (The percentages for 2018 are an average of the first three quarters of the year.)

Market dynamics

Until this year, webscale data center operators were the primary buyers of 100 GbE switches. That changed when more companies started replacing older 40 GbE ports and discovered the price of 100 GbE links was “very close” to the slower ports, excluding optics, Boujelbene said.

As a result, companies are buying 100 GbE ports as uplinks for top-of-rack switches and core switching. Besides better pricing, the ports also provide excess capacity to handle the growth in internet traffic that is expected over the next several years, as companies support more video, cloud-based applications and mobile devices.

In general, businesses smaller than the largest internet companies prefer to buy systems from incumbent vendors that provide familiar technology and support. White box products typically require more expertise and larger IT departments.

Dell’Oro expects vendors to double 100 GbE port shipments this year from last year when the number reached 4.6 million. “We expect [port shipments] to almost double in 2019,” Boujelbene said.

Limbitless & 343 Collaboration

One of our core missions here at the studio is to “inspire heroes and deliver wonder.” Normally, this is most often and understandably applied to the nature of making games. Indeed, creating new worlds to explore, new mysteries to solve, and heroes through which to experience it all is always an amazing and rewarding endeavor. There are, however, times where opportunities to inspire heroes and deliver wonder present themselves outside the scope of game code, cutscene scripts, or sandbox balancing.

Today we’re excited to talk a little bit about one such opportunity, as 343 Industries is proud to announce a collaboration with Limbitless Solutions to provide new Halo-themed, 3D-printed prosthetics to be made available to young heroes who – like the Master Chief himself – also routinely and triumphantly beat the odds.

Limbitless Solutions is a non-profit organization that creates an affordable option for prosthetic-limb devices for children. Using rapid prototyping technologies ‑ 3D printing specifically ‑ prosthetic arms that are fully functional and capable of gripping objects and various gestures are created and fitted to children at a fraction of the cost compared to other prosthetics on the market. The incredible and dedicated team over at Limbitless began in 2014 as a group of University of Central Florida students who wanted to help a family whose son was born without most of his right arm, and since Limbitless has grown to a full-time operation based at UCF in Orlando, Fla. 

The Limbitless “Bionic Arm” prosthetics are all at once functional, cost-effective, and expressive, and perhaps best of all, Limbitless donates their innovative prosthetic arms completely free of charge to recipients and their families. Limbitless is “devoted to building a generation of innovators who use their skills and passion to improve the world around them.” To learn more about their program and also see and hear inspiring stories of affiliated families, please make sure to visit Limbitless-Solutions.org.

THE HALO CONNECTION

With all that firmly in mind, we’re incredibly honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Limbitless Solutions to offer a unique bit of Halo flavor in our shared goal of inspiring heroes. Beginning in 2019, Limbitless will add two special Halo-themed options to their already-amazing lineup of designs for their 3D-printed Bionic Arms. First up is a fantastic recreation of the Master Chief’s own legendary Mk. VI armor, designed to help turn any eager recipient into an awesomely augmented, galaxy-saving superhero.

In addition, Limbitless will also offer a “multiplayer” variant of the Mjolnir-inspired and personalized prosthetic, allowing a wide range of creative color customization to create a Spartan style as unique and heroic as the recipients themselves. We’re infinitely honored to have been approached Limbitless Solutions to help further their ongoing mission to make heroes out of humanity and look forward to delivering hope and helping hands beginning early next year.

DOJ indicts two Chinese nationals for APT10 group cyberattacks

The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday indicted two Chinese nationals accused of cyberattacks around the world in association with the Chinese state-sponsored hacking group known as APT10.

The two individuals, Zhu Hua and Zhang Shilong, were indicted on several charges in connection with cyberattacks and intellectual property (IP) theft, including conspiracy to commit computer intrusions, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) said APT10 began attacks in 2006, targeting “more than 45 technology companies in at least a dozen U.S. states and U.S. government agencies.” Then, in 2014, the group began targeting managed service providers (MSPs) in 12 countries, rather than attacking organizations directly.

“The APT10 Group targeted MSPs in order to leverage the MSPs’ networks to gain unauthorized access to the computers and computer networks of the MSPs’ clients and to steal, among other data, intellectual property and confidential business data on a global scale,” the DOJ wrote in its announcement. “For example, through the MSP theft campaign, the APT10 Group obtained unauthorized access to the computers of an MSP that had offices in the Southern District of New York and compromised the data of that MSP and certain of its clients involved in banking and finance, telecommunications and consumer electronics, medical equipment, packaging, manufacturing, consulting, healthcare, biotechnology, automotive, oil and gas exploration, and mining.”

During a press conference announcing the indictments, FBI Director Christopher Wray called out the Chinese government for its extensive hacking campaigns against U.S. companies and government agencies.

“No country poses a broader, more severe long-term threat to our nation’s economy and cyber infrastructure than China,” Wray said.

In August, cybersecurity vendor CrowdStrike published a report on APT10, also known as Stone Panda, that named Shilong as a suspected member of the group and provided information connecting APT10 to China’s Ministry of State Security.

“It is unprecedented and encouraging to see the U.S. government, joined by so many international allies, taking a decisive stance against Chinese state-sponsored economic espionage,” CrowdStrike co-founder and CTO Dmitri Alperovitch wrote in a statement. “For the past year, CrowdStrike has been reporting on the increase of activity we’ve seen from Chinese state-affiliated cyber threat actors, aimed at stealing trade secrets from nearly every sector of the economy, including biotech, defense, mining, pharmaceutical, professional services, transportation, and more.

“Today’s announcement of indictments against Ministry of State Security (MSS), whom we deem now to be the most active Chinese cyber threat actor, is another step in a campaign that has been waged to indicate to China that its blatant theft of IP is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. While this action alone will not likely solve the issue and companies in U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan will continue to be targeted by MSS for industrial espionage, it is an important element in raising the cost and isolating them internationally.”

Christiaan Beek, lead scientist and senior principal engineer at McAfee, based in Santa Clara, Calif., said, “Attacking the MSP means that, as an organization, it is out of your sight and control. Secondly, targeting the MSP means also more insight into multiple organizations at the same time instead of setting up separate campaigns for potential victims.”

Terry Ray, CTO of Imperva, based in Redwood Shores, Calif., said the APT10 group attacks should be a case that enterprises learn from.

“This scenario of targeting MSPs, rather than organizations directly, is yet another example of the trickle-down effect — attacking one target to gain access to something they wouldn’t normally expect,” Ray said. “In this case, the trickle-down is the use of one service to gain access to another. This is exactly why security teams need to take that step back away from their own company’s concerns and look at how a breach of their systems could impact their customers, employees, partners and other.”

Jake Olcott, vice president at Boston-based BitSight, said MSP compromises have “become a global phenomenon.”

“Most organizations blindly trust that their service providers are protecting their data. Trust is not a strategy that works in the 21st century,” Olcott said. “Organizations everywhere are at risk due to the rise in outsourcing and contracting. These incidents represent the No. 1 cyber-risk to organizations today, and also threaten global commerce.”   

As part of the campaign beginning in 2006, the DOJ said the two Chinese hackers and APT10 “stole hundreds of gigabytes of sensitive data” from technology companies, including NASA, and stole sensitive data like Social Security numbers and dates of birth for more than 100,000 Navy personnel.

Carl Wright, chief commercial officer of AttackIQ, based in San Diego, praised the indictment of the APT10 group members, because “the blatant theft of IP and other sensitive data is unacceptable.”

“Despite these indictments, prosecutions are unlikely, given that the hackers are Chinese residents and extraditions are a rarity,” Wright said. “These charges will restrict the international travels of those named in the filing and will send a warning to those who have not been named, potentially deterring motivation for future attacks against the United States.”

Jonathan Bensen, interim CISO and director of product management at Balbix, based in San Jose, Calif., noted that the APT10 indictment “has effectively scrubbed the bilateral agreement between the United States and China in 2015 that called for a truce against hostile cyberattacks and espionage.”

    Hi, the last two of these to go on a popular site went for just a tad over £300, mainly as this has been superseded by the 27UK850 now with HDR.

    I would go a little higher as yours is only a few months old so if you could supply it with the invoice for warranty purposes i would like to offer £325 inc.

Microsoft patches Internet Explorer zero-day bug under attack

Microsoft Wednesday issued an emergency out-of-band patch for an Internet Explorer zero-day vulnerability that was actively exploited by threat actors.

The zero-day bug is a remote code execution vulnerability that affects how Microsoft’s scripting engine handles objects in memory for Internet Explorer 11, as well as some older versions of the browser. According to Microsoft’s advisory, threat actors could exploit the vulnerability (CVE-2018-8653) to corrupt a system’s memory and execute arbitrary code.

“In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit the vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website, for example, by sending an email,” the advisory states.

Microsoft said separately that the Internet Explorer zero day was “being used in targeted attacks,” though the software giant didn’t provide additional details. Satnam Narang, senior research engineer at Tenable Inc., also said in a statement that the vulnerability was being exploited in the wild.

The flaw was reported to Microsoft by Clement Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group. The out-of-band patch for the Internet Explorer zero-day bug addresses how the scripting engine handles objects in memory for the browser.

The out-of-band patch came a week after Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday for December addressed a different zero-day vulnerability that was also under attack and similarly involved improper handling of objects in memory. The privilege escalation vulnerability (CVE-2018-8611) in the Windows kernel can allow attackers to run arbitrary code in kernel mode.

In other news

  • An Amnesty International report detailed how threat groups have targeted human rights activists and journalists across the Middle East and Africa with a phishing campaign that uses an automated bypass of two-factor authentication (2FA) for both Gmail and Yahoo email. According to the report, the campaign uses phishing domains that look like Google and Yahoo login pages that ask not only for user passwords but also triggers a legitimate security alert from Google, which sends a six-digit 2FA code to victims’ mobile devices via SMS. Victims then enter the legitimate 2FA code in the phishing pages, which the attackers intercept to take control of the email accounts. “In a completely automated fashion, the attackers managed to use our password to login (sic) into our account, obtain from us the two-factor authentication code sent to our phone, and eventually prompt us to change the password to our account,” the report stated. Amnesty International argued that while 2FA is an important security measure, users should be aware of its limitations and the risks posed by threat actors such as the one detailed in the report.
  • The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Thursday that it seized 15 web domains and charged three suspects in connection with distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Matthew Gatrel, 30, of St. Charles, Illinois; Juan Martinez, 25, of Pasadena, California; and David Bukoski, 23, of Hanover Township, Pennsylvania, are accused of running DDoS-for-hire services, also known as booter or stresser services. According to the criminal complaints, Gatrel and Martinez allegedly operated Downthem and Ampnode stresser services, while Bukoski is accused of running Quantum Stresser, which the DOJ calls “one of the longest-running DDoS services in operation.” Quantum was used to launch or attempt more than 50,000 DDoS attacks this year alone. Infosec journalist Brian Krebs noted the “unprecedented” takedown of these stresser services was unique because the FBI tested each service it dismantled to determine the scale of the DDoS attacks they deliver and learn more about how they operate.
  • Media conglomerate Oath announced this week that it has paid $5 million in bug bounties this year, which is almost five times what it paid out for bounties in 2017. The company, which includes subsidiaries Yahoo, AOL, Verizon Digital Media Services and TechCrunch, runs a private bug bounty program through HackerOne. According to Oath, the program received 1,900 valid vulnerabilities this year, 300 of which were high or critical severity. By comparison, Facebook recently announced that it paid more than $1.1 million in bug bounties this year for 700 reported vulnerabilities.

    Yes, it’s still available but no, I think the asking price is fair and includes shipping so won’t go any lower.

    Hi, the last two of these to go on a popular site went for just a tad over £300, mainly as this has been superseded by the 27UK850 now with HDR.

    I would go a little higher as yours is only a few months old so if you could supply it with the invoice for warranty purposes i would like to offer £325 inc.

Limbitless & 343 Collaboration

One of our core missions here at the studio is to “inspire heroes and deliver wonder.” Normally, this is most often and understandably applied to the nature of making games. Indeed, creating new worlds to explore, new mysteries to solve, and heroes through which to experience it all is always an amazing and rewarding endeavor. There are, however, times where opportunities to inspire heroes and deliver wonder present themselves outside the scope of game code, cutscene scripts, or sandbox balancing.

Today we’re excited to talk a little bit about one such opportunity, as 343 Industries is proud to announce a collaboration with Limbitless Solutions to provide new Halo-themed, 3D-printed prosthetics to be made available to young heroes who – like the Master Chief himself – also routinely and triumphantly beat the odds.

Limbitless Solutions is a non-profit organization that creates an affordable option for prosthetic-limb devices for children. Using rapid prototyping technologies ‑ 3D printing specifically ‑ prosthetic arms that are fully functional and capable of gripping objects and various gestures are created and fitted to children at a fraction of the cost compared to other prosthetics on the market. The incredible and dedicated team over at Limbitless began in 2014 as a group of University of Central Florida students who wanted to help a family whose son was born without most of his right arm, and since Limbitless has grown to a full-time operation based at UCF in Orlando, Fla. 

The Limbitless “Bionic Arm” prosthetics are all at once functional, cost-effective, and expressive, and perhaps best of all, Limbitless donates their innovative prosthetic arms completely free of charge to recipients and their families. Limbitless is “devoted to building a generation of innovators who use their skills and passion to improve the world around them.” To learn more about their program and also see and hear inspiring stories of affiliated families, please make sure to visit Limbitless-Solutions.org.

THE HALO CONNECTION

With all that firmly in mind, we’re incredibly honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Limbitless Solutions to offer a unique bit of Halo flavor in our shared goal of inspiring heroes. Beginning in 2019, Limbitless will add two special Halo-themed options to their already-amazing lineup of designs for their 3D-printed Bionic Arms. First up is a fantastic recreation of the Master Chief’s own legendary Mk. VI armor, designed to help turn any eager recipient into an awesomely augmented, galaxy-saving superhero.

In addition, Limbitless will also offer a “multiplayer” variant of the Mjolnir-inspired and personalized prosthetic, allowing a wide range of creative color customization to create a Spartan style as unique and heroic as the recipients themselves. We’re infinitely honored to have been approached Limbitless Solutions to help further their ongoing mission to make heroes out of humanity and look forward to delivering hope and helping hands beginning early next year.

Again, for more information on Limbitless Solutions and their innovative and empowering projects, please make sure to visit Limbitless-Solutions.org on the web, or on Twitter at @Limbitless3D. You can also learn more about their amazing studio and team by checking out their YouTube channel.
