Free Subscription Software Now Available to Protect Against the F5 Vulnerability — Beyond the F5 Patch
HelmCyber, pioneering encryption visibility and digital certificate analytics for cloud and on premises, launched from stealth and announced the general availability of F5-Protect software to immediately and continuously identify indicators of the compromise resulting from the F5 Big-IP vulnerability. The software is for download here. This no cost enterprise subscription software operates non-intrusively as a self-contained virtual appliance.
- F5-Protect was specifically designed to pinpoint all systems behaving abnormally as a result of the F5 Big-IP TMUI vulnerability (CVE-2020-5902). This capability is extremely useful and time saving for incident response (IR) as well as to identify when malicious users have returned to exploit previously compromised systems.
- F5-Protect uses intelligent monitoring to immediately identify when either internal or external connections indicate an attack is in progress. F5-Protect makes no assumptions about the nature of compromise or attack. Instead, it detects solely based on the resulting information, which cannot be hidden.
- Alerts provided are very detailed and identify specific hosts and the protocols they are using to communicate with your F5 Big-IP abnormally.
- If customers choose to upgrade, they can get visibility into their Digital Certificate information (cloud or on premise), which is also at risk with the F5 Vulnerability. A seamless upgrade provides further indictors of compromise with internal or external digital certificates.

“We developed the F5-Protect enterprise software as a free subscription version of our encryption visibility and digital certificate analytics platform. The functionality in this free version is targeted specifically to the TMUI vulnerability,” said Brett Helm, CEO and Chairman of HelmCyber. “The critical flaw is trivial to exploit with a simple browser URL and could lead to complete system compromise. CISOs are rightfully concerned that once they’ve patched their Big-IP systems that they may still be at risk if their systems had already been compromised.”
