What type of vulnerabilities are covered with Armor?
Netgear Armor offers protection against a wide variety of common vulnerabilities and exposures (also known as CVEs), using specific algorithms and intrusion prevention systems to pick up new threats and unsafe behavior.
Here are a few of the vulnerabiltities against which Netgear Armor users are protected:
SQL injection: Attackers can spoof identity, tamper with existing data, cause repudiation issues such as voiding transactions or changing balances, allow the complete disclosure of all data on the system, destroy the data or make it otherwise unavailable, and become administrators of the database server.
Denial Of Service: An attacker can attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users, such as to temporarily or indefinitely interrupt or suspend services of a host.
Execute Code: This is the most powerful effect a bug can have because it allows an attacker to completely take over the vulnerable system.
Directory traversal: An attacker can access a computer file that is not intended to be accessible.
HTTP response splitting: Failure of the application or its environment to properly sanitize input values which may result in the posibility of an attacker to manipulate HTTP requests bodies and bypass input validation.
