This security bulletin written with support from Ordr senior product manager Derek Loomis

Google Chrome has experienced eight zero-day exploits so far in 2024 and four in May alone! To mitigate these threats users are strongly advised to update their Chrome browser to version 125.0.6422.112/.113 for Windows and macOS, and version 125.0.6422.112 for Linux.

Similarly, users of Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Brave, Opera, and Vivaldi are urged to apply the available fixes promptly. Additionally, CISA has acknowledged active exploitation of CVE-2024-5274 and requested that users patch the flaw before June 18, 2024. It’s crucial for administrators to enable application vulnerability policies and consider setting the severity to high, blocking user access to work data until the app is updated.

Attackers may exploit these vulnerabilities by delivering a maliciously crafted webpage through SMS, email, or messaging platforms, convincing victims to tap the link and initiate the exploit. A successful attack could grant attackers access to sensitive data or deliver phishing sites or malware to the vulnerable device, posing a critical risk to enterprise security postures that rely heavily on mobile devices accessing sensitive cloud data.

OrdrAI CAASM+ (Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management) accelerates the remediation of these threats by providing software version information so you don’t have to wait for vulnerability scans to complete. The most recent zero-day exploits are so serious, the U.S. government has warned federal employees to apply emergency updates or stop using Chrome altogether. Deadlines for updates exist for both June 3rd and June 6th. As with all zero-day vulnerabilities, time-to-remediation is crucial, and OrdrAI enables you to act quickly to secure your assets.

How OrdrAI Helps

OrdrAI CAASM+ integrates with your existing infrastructure utilizing API calls to gather software information from numerous vendors. Further, Ordr’s lightweight, patented script and primary data source, Software Inventory Collector, delivers a high-fidelity software inventory. Then, OrdrAI CAASM+ provides out-of-the-box dashboards to continuously monitor your environment. Correlating all these data sources Ordr provides comprehensive and accurate deduplicated asset visibility, thus preventing exposures.

History shows Google Chrome’s recent streak of zero days will repeat itself. Web Browers, Adobe, and Java products have historically been at the top of the list of most vulnerable third-party software. But with OrdrAI CAASM+ you can track all browser versions in your environment.

Ordr’s out-of-the-box comprehensive software inventory allows your remediation teams to define scope and begin remediation in just a few clicks, and Identify and track devices with out-of-date browser versions in your environment. With a simple search, you can then add this as a widget and dig deeper into these devices for remediation, identifying the blast radius in case these vulnerabilities are exploited.

You can also track updates or installation of new browsers based on version number correlated with Install date/Update time.

Customers can also get a detailed view of the blast radius via the “Asset Graph” feature, identifying devices, users, and applications associated with a vulnerable asset.

OrdrAI lets you assign a variety of actions to appropriate remediation teams to patch out of date devices.

Actions Supported by OrdrAI CAASM+

OrdrAI CAASM+ allows easy management of vulnerabilities, including assignments and status of the vulnerabilities thanks to deep integration with vulnerability management tools like ServiceNow VR module, providing real-time status updates based on reconciled data.

Furthermore, OrdrAI CAASM+ delivers vital capabilities, like muting or removing a vulnerability from the system when information is not available or is hidden from publicly available dashboards. This is usually done when admins are not ready to patch and are waiting for validation from the manufacturer. OrdrAI also lets you assign vulnerabilities to individual users along with priority and due date. All this information can be shared with CMDB or any other asset management vendors.

Finally, OrdrAI CAASM+ reduces time-to-remediation and risk to the organization with the help of Integration with messaging/collaboration tools and ticketing systems and providing a range of asset specific actions.
