Shares of FireEye Inc (NASDAQ:FEYE), declined -4.87% to $33.59, during its last trading session.
FireEye has recently dodged a bullet, after a researcher from ERNW GmBH detected flaws in the company’s security suite. In turn, FireEye decided to place an injunction against the researcher, preventing him from fully disclosing the details. The company stated that this was done in order to prevent its trade secrets. Consequently, FEYE has been drawing a lot of criticism from the security community, who were expecting a full disclosure of the vulnerabilities at the 44Con event in London, according to Journal Transcript.
Recent reports suggest that the flaw lied in the Apache servers of the company, which could be accessed by default use of the root account to access client data. A compromise on this level could have led to control without permission and data theft on a very large scale. Although the flaws have been fixed by the company, the researcher was still awarded an injunction from a German court. As a result, the company is trying to explain its position and exercise damage control. In a more recent statement from FEYE, the company stated that their team is comprised of security researchers as well and any comments on FireEye products are most welcome. Journal Transcript Reports
