SafeBreach Detects Security Flaw in Intel Technology

Sunnyvale, California-headquartered cybersecurity company SafeBreach Inc. has discovered a vulnerability in Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology, the company announced Monday. Rapid Storage Technology is provided with many Intel chipset-based personal computers.

According to SafeBreach, the vulnerability allows hackers to infiltrate the computer and operate it under the auspices of Intel's technology, using a technique called DLL hijacking. The vulnerability lets attackers trick the computer and load malicious data, pretending it is coming from Intel. This gives hackers administrator privileges and the ability to bypass anti-virus programs.

In response to SafeBreach’s find, Intel released a statement urging users to update their software to mitigate the potential vulnerability.

Founded in 2014 by two Israeli military tech unit veterans, SafeBreach develops software that simulates breaches and attacks on existing security systems, helping administrators identify and fix security flaws before an attack can occur. The company has a research and development center in Tel Aviv. SafeBreach has raised $34 million to date, according to Pitchbook data.
