RE: Secuirty Hole Found In Dave's Sock

        The sock came with the factory installed configuration.
This hole is not part of that configuration and there is no
mechanism in the origial configuration to close this one off.

It seems that the proprietary and the open source manufacturers agreed
upon a standardized default configuration: all models are designed with
one hole, used for deployment. Are you reporting the existence of a
second hole, or is this an observation of the factory installed default
configuration?

My recommendation is to isolate the sock until a full forensic
examination can be performed.

Just another thought,

Tobin

Date:           9/8/2005

Vulnerability Found:    Hole In Dave's Socket

Affected System:                Dave's Right Sock

Severity:                       Rating: Moderately Critical
                                Impact: System access
                                Where:  Foot

Description of Vulnerability:  This morning while putting my socks on I
found a small (1/4 inch) hole by my big toe. This could be exploited by
a virus through the bottom of the foot or under the toe nail. This could
be used to compromise Dave's entire system.

Solution: No permanent solution is currently available. A work around is
to wear the sock on the other foot to have the hole above the small toe
where it will not be furthur enlarged, it will proboably fold over and
partially cover the vulnerability. Permanent solution coming in either a
sock darning or upgrading the unit to a new sock.

Time Table:             Found at 7:48am on Sept 8th, 1005
                        Work around figured out at 7:49am on Sept 8th,
2005
                        Permanent Solution Pending

Credits:                Found by Dave

References:             No references available.
