Every year, CNBC scans the globe looking for the 100 venture-backed start-ups that have the potential to transform industries and become tomorrow’s household names. Enterprise firmware security leader Eclypsium was named to this year’s list.
Security researchers have found a way to attach virtual USB devices remotely to Supermicro servers, including over the internet, by abusing a feature in their baseband management controller software.
Eclypsium researchers found a common design flaw within the hardware device drivers from multiple vendors. In total, the number of hardware vendors affected runs to 20 and includes every major BIOS vendor. The nature of the vulnerability has the potential for the widespread compromise of Windows 10 machines.
