Logjam is a notorious malware that has been identified as a significant threat to network security. It exploits vulnerabilities in systems by tricking network clients into using weakened encryption modes, known as EXPORT ciphers. This type of "downgrade problem" was initially observed in 2015 when researchers devised similar attacks, including the infamous FREAK and LOGJAM attacks. These malicious activities can infiltrate systems through various channels, such as suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without user awareness. Once inside, they can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or even hold data hostage for ransom. In response to the Logjam threat, U.S. officials have requested insurers to suspend rules that require doctors to seek authorization before providing some care. However, insurers are concerned that this could open doors to fraudulent activities or abusive billing practices. Vulnerabilities that need to be scanned for include IPv6, Wordpress, SiteMap/Robot.txt, Firewall, Slowloris Denial of Service, HEARTBLEED, POODLE, OpenSSL CCS Injection, FREAK, Firewall, LOGJAM, FTP Service, STUXNET, Telnet Service, LOG4j, Stress Tests, WebDAV, LFI, RFI, or RCE. The fight against malware like Logjam involves a collaborative effort from various experts in the field. Key contributors include Johns Hopkins University professor Matt Green, PKI and Chromium contributor Ryan Sleevi, browser security expert Chris Palmer, "Logjam attack" developer David Adrian, and AWS cryptography engineer Colm MacCárthaigh. Their collective expertise and knowledge contribute significantly to understanding and mitigating the risks posed by such threats.
