New feature in Triggerfish: Active vulnerability detection


Companies today are exposed to daily attack attempts where attackers use automated tools to detect vulnerabilities. These tools allow an attacker to gain access to confidential customer information. The automatic tools these attackers use are becoming more sophisticated, which means that a vulnerability can be detected within hours of a release.

The same functionality is now introduced in Triggerfish. This allowsy you to automatically scan your website to identify the same security vulnerabilities that an attacker would discover. With the help of this active vulnerability detection, you can quickly get an overview over the security of your website, and fix detected vulnerabilities before an attacker has the opportunity to exploit them. The result of the automated scans will be displayed in our portal.

Prepare your application for GDPR with Triggerfish


Much is being spoken about the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR, which from 25th of may will regulate the handling of personal information in Sweden. It replaces Personuppgiftslagen (PuL) and will require extensive changes to organisations and businesses. Violating GDPR may result in high penalties, up to four percent of a companys turnover or maximally 20 million euro.

Detect and report incidents in time

One of the new requirements is that if there is a security incident involving personal data, such as a hacking or accidental loss of personal data, the incident must be documented and reported within 72 hours. In some cases, if for example there is a risk of identity theft or fraud, the exposed users need also be informed. To live up to the new requirements it is important that organizations and companies that process personal data have sufficient procedures and tools in place to detect, report and investigate incidents.

With the help of the monitoring service Triggerfish you discover incidents against your website and can report them in time.

Triggerfish is a monitoring service for websites which provides you a thorough understanding of what is happening on your web applications. The service detects data incidents such as ongoing attack attempts but also security flaws that attackers can exploit to gain access to confidential information. Triggerfish also alerts when your webapplication is used in an abnormal way, which is often a sign of an ongoing attack attempt.

Advantages of Triggerfish

  • Get information about security incidents and ongoing attack attempts in real time.
  • Get to know if an attacker managed to access any confidential information.
  • Get knowledge and gives the opportunity to examine in detail what the attacker or users have done.
  • Provides information about the suspicious activity on the website which often is a sign of an ongoing attack attempt.
  • Adaptable to different web applications and functionality.
  • Automatic review of your webapp to regularly detect security vulnerabilities and provide recommendations to increase your level of security.

Zero-day detected in Apache Struts 2


Struts is a popular open source framework for building Servlet/JSP based web applications. The vulnerability (CVE-2017-5638) is a remote code execution bug that affects the Jakarta Multipart parser in Apache which is used for uploading files. It allows an attacker to perform an unauthenticated remote code execution by crafting a special Content-Type value in an HTTP request.

The vulnerability is fixed in the latest version of Apache Struts 2. If you are using Jakarta-based file upload Multipart parser, upgrade to Apache Struts version 2.3.32 or or higher.

In the last 2 days our web monitoring service Triggerfish has detected an increasing number of attack attempts where automated scanners are looking for affected web pages.
