Vulnerability (CVE-2015-0291) rated as high severity by OpenSSL.
I just wanted to give a shout out to JesusWept3 for 2,000 solutions! (Actually 2,002 at the time of this writing)
Thanks for your many contributions to this forum!
The road to success is never straightforward. This is a tale of a RAT developer’s persistence in the face of endless setbacks.
After each of our annual corporate responsibility reports, we ask for feedback from our stakeholders through the CR Snapshot. The helpful comments we receive guide us to continually improve our communications and disclosure around corporate responsibility issues.
In the survey completed for Symantec’s 2014 Corporate Responsibility Report, we also asked which partner organization you feel should receive a $50,000 grant from Symantec. Many worthwhile community partners received votes, and the winner of the grant was the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). This grant will build upon Symantec’s past support of WAGGGS and programs like Surf Smart, which teaches young people why and how to stay safe online. We offer our sincere congratulations to WAGGGS for a well-deserved prize!
Through other responses, you helped us to identify issues in which we have excelled. These include topics such as community investment, promoting privacy, online safety, and protecting against cybercrime. You also highlighted material issues where we might improve, such as environmental performance, and responsible sourcing. The chart below illustrates this feedback.
When respondents answered what section of the 2014 Corporate Responsibility Report they found most interesting, replies were fairly even across the three main sections: Our People, which covers employee satisfaction, talent management, and diversity and inclusion; Your Information, which covers cybersecurity, online safety, and privacy; and The World, which covers climate change, responsible sourcing and human rights, and community investment. These results can be seen in the following chart:
This feedback is crucial for us to continue to improve our corporate responsibility programs and reporting, and we always welcome further comments. Please contact us at email@example.com with any other comments you have on our Corporate Responsibility Report or any other aspects of the way we do business. We look forward to hearing from you!
While mobility in the enterprise is enabling innovation and agility, it is also introducing a number of troubling security risks that represent back door opportunities for cyber criminals. The good news is, enterprises can protect corporate data. By understanding each of the risk areas and employing a layered security approach to address them, you can defend your business. The top seven risks of enterprise mobility include:
1. Heterogeneous Environment
Unlike traditional endpoints, mobile devices represent a motley collection of appliances and operating systems. To make matters worse, employees often use multiple devices, which may or may not be owned by the company. In fact, according to Forrester, 53 percent of information workers now use three or more devices for work, and 95 percent of organizations allow the use of employee-owned devices in some form. Crucial security measures to manage these challenges include applying consistent policies across mobile operating systems and separating personal and corporate data.
2. Anytime, Anywhere Connectivity
Because they are hyper-connected, mobile devices often access unsecured networks, increasing the risk of data loss. 71 percent of all mobile communications are now flowing over WiFi, and 90 percent of public WiFi hotspots have inadequate security--ominous indeed. To counter these risks, ensure connectivity via certificate-based network access, and utilize per-app VPNs that encrypt data in transit. In addition, you’ll want to deploy app and email proxies that block unauthorized or non-compliant devices and apps.
3. Loss and Theft
Small and portable devices are vulnerable to loss and theft. 3.1 million smartphones were stolen in 2013, nearly twice as many as in 2012. In addition, eight out of ten finders of lost devices were found to have tried to access corporate information on the device. To protect lost or stolen devices, enforce password policies for devices and apps using multi-factor authentication. Provide seamless access to corporate apps and resources with certificates and single sign-on. Encrypt corporate apps and data so they’re protected even if the device is compromised. Finally, employ full or selective device wipe.
4. Compromised Devices
Users can tamper with (jailbreak or root) a device’s operating system to gain elevated privileges and install malicious apps from unauthorized app stores. According to Forbes, 18 million iOS devices had been jailbroken within six weeks of jailbreak tool availability, and 24 percent of mobile phones currently on corporate networks are jailbroken. To counter this threat, you must continuously monitor device compliance, and identify and block compromised devices from accessing enterprise networks and apps.
5. Data Leaks
With ever-greater numbers of workers relying on mobile apps for work and personal use, IT professionals are alarmed. A whopping 87 percent are specifically concerned about mobile data leakage, while 46 percent of IT leaders are certain that unmanaged file sharing is causing data leaks. To allay these risks, implement mobile DLP policies like blocking copy and paste actions. Manage “open in” controls to prevent content from being accessed by unapproved apps, and control whether data is allowed to be stored locally or on a Micro-SD card.
6. Bring Your Own Apps
Employees are relying on personal apps, such as file sync and sharing tools, for work purposes, increasing the risk of data loss and potential breaches. 25 percent of employees are now bringing their own mobile apps into the workplace to fill a perceived gap of apps not provided by their employers, and 75 percent of these apps are expected to fail basic security tests through 2015. To protect your business from these risky apps, begin by providing a curated enterprise app store that offers easy access to approved in-house and third-party apps. In addition, deploy and manage user apps dependent on role, and implement app-level security policies for DLP, encryption, and authentication.
7. Malicious and Risky Apps
Apps are fun, helpful—and the weakest point of entry for determined cyber-criminals. All too often, they are installed by users with little or no thought to the dangers they may pose. According to Norton Mobile Insight, as of October 2014, there were three million malicious apps—and eight million apps with risky behaviors—circulating. These risky behaviors included stealing information (19%), tracking the user (22%), posing traditional threats (26%), sending content (13%), and reconfiguring the device (13%). To guard against these outcomes and ensure devices are protected, implement centrally managed mobile threat protection that can proactively detect and block mobile threats such as malware and risky apps. IT can white- or black-list apps based on app behavior, and prevent access to enterprise apps and services if malware is detected.
The risks are daunting, but the fact is, you can deliver comprehensive mobile protection without compromising the user experience. Our concise infographic clearly lays out these top seven risks, along with the specific security measures needed to mitigate them, so your data, apps, and users stay connected, productive, and secure.

Estoy recibiendo ultimamente una serie de preguntas acerca de la soportabilidad de NetBackup con VMware 6.0, tal y como comentamos en el User Group de NetBackup una de las vías de trabajo de NetBackup es proteger cada carga de trabajo de la mejor forma posible, y establecer a su vez unos mecanismos de agilidad en la proliferación de soporte de estas cargas de trabajo, tal y como viene siendo habitual en las diferentes versiones de NetBackup.
De esta forma nos complace informar de que Netbackup tiene soporte de VMware 6.0 en un "Same-Day Support" ya con la versión 184.108.40.206 que esta completamente disponible hace ya algunas semanas.
Cualquier duda que tengais al respecto, no dudeis en contactar con nosotros.

Going Dark to Celebrate Earth Hour
On March 28th, 2015, from 8:30 – 9:30 pm local time, citizens, governments, and businesses from over 162 countries will turn off their lights for one hour in a symbolic action to bring attention to climate change and environmental sustainability. Known as “Earth Hour”, the open source movement was created by the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) in 2007 and has grown from an event in one city to one that is celebrated by millions worldwide each year.
Symantec will join this inspiring grassroots movement by powering down nonessential lights in our offices around the world. Additionally, as Earth Hour aims to “turn the inspirations of one hour into the actions of every hour”, we’d like to reflect upon our efforts at Symantec to do this. From the success of our Green Teams to celebrating Earth Day worldwide to green talks inspiring sustainable lifestyles, we strive to operate every day in an environmentally sound manner, both as individuals and as a company.
Green Team Success
Symantec’s commitment to environmental stewardship is demonstrated by the activities of our global employee “Green Teams”. Employees who are part of our Green Teams organize environmental initiatives that affect their office and the company at large. An example that unites many of our offices is our ongoing “One Mug, One Planet” campaign to replace the use of paper and plastic cups with reusable cups and mugs. Participating offices have seen direct, tangible results during the first six months of the campaign including:
Prince Jain and Amit Gadekar show off their Green Team mugs in Pune, India
Additionally, while we reached our goal of 1,000 pledges, this February, we challenged our employees to go even further, to reach 300 more pledges by Earth Day 2015. We’ve more than doubled this new goal and have reached 2,111 total pledges, with employees at sites in Pune, India, Springfield, OR, and Culver City, CA seeing a surge in participation!
Green Talk Inspires a Low-Carbon Lifestyle
The Green Teams have also developed our quarterly Green Talk series, which provides an opportunity for employees to learn about environmental initiatives outside of the company. The talks will alternate topics within Symantec’s environmental strategy including: Green IT, Resource conservation, Responsible Sourcing and Travel and Events.
In July our first inaugural Green Talk took place at our Mountain View headquarters featuring Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques-Yves Cousteau one of the world’s most well-known underwater researchers. The latest Green Talk organized by our Green Park, UK office this March featured Rob Hopkins, co-founder of the Transition Culture movement, which supports the transition of our society and local communities to a low-carbon and sustainable future.
Green Talk speaker, Rob Hopkins, presents the Transition Culture movement in Green Park, UK
This talk is available to stream online. We are looking forward to our next Green Talk, to take place at our Sydney, Australia site this spring.
Celebrating Earth Day at our Mountain View Headquarters
Symantec’s Mountain View office will host an Earth Day Fair on April 16th, 2015. This event will bring over 25 vendors, who will be available to talk to Symantec employees about electric cars, sustainable food, and other green technologies.
From Earth Hour to Green Team activities to our Earth Day celebrations, Symantec celebrates the inspirational efforts of our employees to demonstrate our commitment to the environment not on just one day, but all days throughout the year.

As every global business knows, understanding cultural differences can make or break a company. From language to formality to etiquette, the SSC team shares the ins and outs of the Turkish business culture.
The SSC team.
With customers across more than 48 countries, Symantec is by definition a global company. As such, many of the decisions we make on a daily basis require a deep understanding of the unwritten rules of international business culture including etiquette and operations, communication, punctuality, and much more—awareness that our company has gathered over time through the many experiences, interactions, and partnerships of our employees.
Throughout the last four weeks, the 2015 Symantec Service Corps (SSC) team has immersed itself into the Turkish business culture, significantly increasing our cross-cultural knowledge base. In a short time period, they’ve learned to work with a whole new team, enhanced their awareness of the region, gained significant skills and enjoyed intercultural experiences; all which will leave a lasting impact in Ankara and help Symantec successfully conduct global business in this fast-growing region for many years to come.
A peek inside the Turkish business culture
The team’s experience in Turkey has been much different than their typical days in their respective countries. Some of this is due to the speed in which their projects must be completed, but much of it can also be attributed to the Turkish business culture.
Flying Broom office: A look at the many archives the SSC team is tasked with cataloging.
After nearly four weeks of working in Ankara, which the team feels has gone by too quickly, they are sharing some of their most memorable experiences about the Turkish culture:
Team Flying Broom tackles women empowerment
Over the past two weeks, we’ve spotlighted Doğa Derneği (Nature Society) and the Association for Solidarity with Asylum Seekers and Migrants—today we are highlighting the Flying Broom team, which includes Archana Rajan (Culver City, CA), Amitoj Duggal (Pune, India), and Travis Goldberg (Dublin, Ireland).
Team Flying Broom enjoys lunch with their clients.
Flying Broom is a women’s organization that is focused on enhancing gender equality by providing information and training to empower women and women’s organizations, and contributing to the development of effective policies to tackle problems arising from inequality. Their organization’s mission is closely aligned with Symantec’s commitment to diversity and empowering women around the world.
During their time in Ankara, the Symantec team has worked to improve and protect the tremendous film archives associated with the organization’s 18-year International Women’s Film Festival. Their assignment was to research tools for online archiving and sharing of film materials, and provide recommendations and an action plan to make festival materials available to the public.
The team got to work and quickly identified a solution based around a NAS (network-attached storage) box which will allow all connected users in the office to share their files, including backup, quicker data access, and easier administration. The client accepted the team’s recommendations and immediately purchased the technology, demonstrating their confidence in the team and the strength of their recommendation. While their days in Turkey are quickly coming to a close, the team is training key users at Flying Broom on how to use and maintain the system so they can enjoy all the benefits of the technology for many years to come.
“I am inspired by this incredible opportunity to work with fellow colleagues, from around the world, for a great cause, and to engage in a new (to me) culture, with a deep seeded history stretching all the way back to the cradle of civilization,” notes Travis Goldberg, senior pricing and licensing specialist.
Approaching the end
There are just days left in Ankara before the SSC team boards their planes and departs for their hometowns, a sad thought for many. The core SSC team was recently joined by Lora Phillips, Senior Manager, Global Corporate Responsibility, who will be in the audience on Friday, March 25 as the nine participants officially wrap up their projects and deliver closing presentations. They’ve not only produced incredible results for their clients but have also immersed themselves in the culture, bringing back many new skills and experiences to share with their teammates and Symantec as a whole.
Lora Phillips, Senior Manager, Global Corporate Responsibility, joins the team for the last week of the mission.
Stay tuned as we conclude this series, sharing key accomplishments, lessons learned, and what the team will remember most about Turkey. For more behind the scenes stories and photos, visit the Symantec Service Corps blog, here on the Corporate Responsibility in Action blog, and twitter using hashtag #SSC15.
