US regulators ignore firmware flaws, says think tank

1 min read

The Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a think tank, has argued that US regulators have failed to address firmware vulnerabilities in government cybersecurity initiatives. Firmware vulnerabilities, which connect the hardware and software of a device, are frequently left exposed to security risks due to weak code bases. The report suggests that efforts to protect firmware have been overlooked, and an agency should be created to oversee digital platforms. The report also recommends the creation of a national repository for known firmware threats and updates to existing guidance on firmware resiliency.
