SEATTLE, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Peach Fuzzer, LLC, announces further improvements to the world's leading fuzz-testing platform. Peach Fuzzer users can now discover unknown vulnerabilities within the HL7v2 and DICOM protocols responsible for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting sensitive healthcare information, including images.
This release expands the out-of-the-box fuzzing capabilities of Peach to allow the scrutinizing of hardware and software systems that utilize and ingest data sent via the HL7 format or imagery created in the DICOM format. This means that security teams in leading healthcare organizations or manufacturers that support these protocols can now uncover previously undetected flaws that could otherwise lead to zero-day attacks.
In an industry plagued with high-profile and costly data breaches, the latest version of Peach Fuzzer represents a cost-effective and innovative solution for discovering unknown vulnerabilities in the clinical systems responsible for patient tracking, billing, and support.
In addition to these improvements, this latest release includes additional protocol definitions and features designed to streamline workflow:
iSCSI Pit – A network protocol commonly used in enterprise data centers.
DTLS Server Pit – A protocol analogous to SSL/TLS used in the Internet of Things (IoT) space (part of our IoT Pit Pack).
JIRA integration – Allows detected faults to be exported to JIRA as work tickets.
.peach Configurations – Easily shares complex custom configurations.
We will be demonstrating the power of Peach Fuzzer Apr 20 – Apr 22 at AFCEA's Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium in Washington D.C.'s Walter E. Washington Convention Center, booth 1546.
