Ripple20 is a cybersecurity threat so named because of the capacity for a ripple effect it could have on the supply chain. Its vulnerabilities have been integrated into potentially billions of consumer, enterprise and industrial IoT devices over the last two decades. Security expert firm JSOF stated that devices from many OEMs and integrators, including companies in medical, enterprise, telecom, energy, retail and other verticals, are vulnerable. Cybercriminals can exploit the weakness to steal data or cause equipment to malfunction.
On June 16, JSOF’s research lab released a comprehensive report (called Ripple20) that outlines 19 vulnerabilities traced to certain versions of the TCP/IP stack from Treck Inc.
