Polyverse Thwarts PHP Vulnerabilities, WordPress Attacks
BELLEVUE, Wash., August 22, 2018--Polyverse Corporation today announced its R&D project, Polyscripting, stops all PHP code injection and execution vulnerabilities detailed in a whitepaper recently released by Secarma Labs. Polyverse already provides the only Moving Target Defense (MTD) technology proven to stop the most dangerous zero-day cybersecurity attacks. Polyscripting is the company’s next solution in development.
“We have confirmed that Polyverse’s Polyscripting approach will stop all unwanted PHP execution vulnerabilities in the Secarma whitepaper,” said Polyverse CTO Archis Gore. “Polyscripting looks to the future and does what the patches don’t -- it stops the code execution vulnerabilities in their entirety.”
Polyverse’s first product, its polymorphic version of Linux®, is the only MTD cybersecurity product proven by the U.S. Department of Defense to stop 100 percent of zero-day memory exploits.*
Polyscripting is a free, open source tool that applies a MTD strategy to the language of the three major open source web applications used by millions of people every day - WordPress, MediaWiki and Drupal.
“Polyscripting aims to dethrone code injection as the top security risk...by making the central component of code injection impossible,” writes Polyverse Engineer Blue Gaston in Introducing Polyscripting -- the beginning of the end of code injection.
Since 2010, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 List identified code injection as the number-one most critical web application security risk.
The Polyscripting approach must be applied to each language in the stack. It will therefore not stop exploits that bypass PHP and execute other code in other languages, such as the Shell (sh, bash, csh, zsh, Powershell, etc.). Polyscripted shells are certainly on the Polyverse roadmap. For more about Polyscripting, click here.
