Network World, April 30, 2007
CME was mentioned in an op-ed article entitled “How
to find your security holes: Check your network for CVEs” by NetClarity,
Inc. founder and CTO Gary S. Miliefsky in the April 30, 2007 issue of Network
World. The main topic of the article is that hackers have caused billions
of dollars in damages and that they "have a plethora of tools available
in their war chests ranging from spyware, rootkits, Trojans, viruses, worms,
bots, and zombies to various other blended threats" and these security
holes must be fixed. CME is mentioned when the author states: "Not all
exploits are created equal. Most are evolutionary improvements on existing exploits.
What's very interesting is that the average exploit currently has a dozen
names. With the advent of the Common Malware Enumeration
(CME) standard, there will be one shared, neutral indexing capability for
malware but that [is] … just starting to catch on …"
The author also mentions the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project and concludes the article by
stating that: "Removing critical CVEs is considered due care. Frequent
and consistently scheduled security audits for CVEs and their removal is the
only prudent thing to do as a proactive information security manager. Now is
the time to find and fix your CVEs so you can be more productive and suffer
less downtime and successful hacker attacks. If you remove all of your CVEs
you'll be as close to 100% secure as possible."
CNET Reviews, April 13, 2007
CME was mentioned in an April 13, 2007 article entitled “Taking
the Internet by storm” on CNET
Reviews. The main topic of the article is the recurrence of CME-711,
also called Storm. CME is mentioned when the author states: "Recently,
Mitre.org created the Common Malware Enumeration, which seeks to classify worms
and Trojan horses under a common designation. CME-711
refers to the Storm worm, and by visiting the Mitre site you can see how
various antivirus vendors have labeled the previous variations of this worm:
CA calls it "Peacoan," Esset calls it "Fudip," Norman calls
it "Tibs," and F-Secure calls it "Zhelatin." By whatever
name, CME-711 is making history." The article was written by Robert Vamosi.
