For the week 7 written assignment, consider the following scenario:
After performing enumeration tests on the Woeson Books system, you discover that the network consists of four systems running Windows Embedded Standard (2 are Windows EmbeddedXP and 2 are Windows Embedded 7), two systems running Windows Server 2008 R2 for Embedded Systems, two systems running Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems, 24 systems running Jetdirect, and five network appliances running embedded Linux.
Based on this information, write a one-two page memo to Mr. Edwards, the director of IT, outlining the vulnerabilities in these systems. Include specific information on those found along with a summery of their effects. The memo should include ways of security testing devices running an embedded operating system and recommendations to reduce the risk of these vulnerabilities being exploited. Be sure to cite specific CVE entries in your memo and include references where Mr. Edwards can learn more.
You should submit a Word compatible file with good writing, spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
You can find the Woeson Books case study in the week 1 assignments or under External Links.
This assignment is worth 50 points.
