CEO of Wallarm, a YCombinator-backed AI security startup.
Almost a year ago, Gartner's analysts predicted API security as a significant cybersecurity threat in 2022. They wrote, "Gartner predicts that by 2022, application programming interface (API) attacks will become the most-frequent attack vector, causing data breaches for enterprise web applications."
This article will explore the top API exploits from the first half of 2022.
API Security Data Source
To validate Gartner's predictions, we used all the available public information about API exploits and vulnerabilities, including the following:
1. CVE/NIST databases.
2. Bug bounty reports (such as those from HackerOne and BugCrowd).
3. Vendors' security bulletins (such as VMware, Microsoft and dozens of others).
4. GitHub's advisory database.
5. Researchers' blog posts and Twitter posts.
Our company's security research team analyzed about 17,500 security reports to distinguish 193 API exploits manually. The whole data source we compiled is available here.
Trend 1: A 286% Increase Quarter Over Quarter
The first trend we noticed was the overall number of API exploits. It increased from 50 to 142 exploits per quarter from the first to the second quarter of 2022. This is an increase of almost three times. It is interesting that in May 2022, new API exploits were released almost every single day (22 overall for a month).
This dynamic highlights an expansion of API security as necessary for combatting cyber risk. If the same growth rate is present for the next two quarters of 2022, we will see 1,170 new API security exploits: 13 a day.
Trend #2: OWASP API8 (Injections) Are A Major Threat
Injection threats (API8) dominated in Q1 (20) and Q2 (52). There were two reasons for this:
1. Injection risks are broad and include dozens of variations, from well-known SQL injections and OS command injections to SSTI (server-side template injections) such as log4shell and spring4shell.
2. A lot of injections are well-known vulnerabilities that are relatively easy to find. Scanning technologies like fuzzing can cover these threats much better than business logic and authentication/authorization security flaws.
Injections are incredibly severe and can be compared to API1 and API2 (BOLA and BULA: broken object level authorization and broken user level authentication).
Trend #3: API5 Vulnerabilities Go Down
This trend was a bit unexpected, but in quarter two, the number of API5 vulnerabilities was reduced from 13 to 8. This downgrade was shown in the OWASP Top Ten list. This is most likely related to the complexity of these issues, which take a lot of time to discover. I predict that, because of this, it's likely that the same number of vulnerabilities are in this class—they'll just take a while to uncover.
Also, because these top ten categories often overlap, one vulnerability may not belong solely to one category, so some reports may be able to be categorized as multiple vulerabilities.
Best Practices And Mitigation
Based on Gartner's predictions and our company's research, I recommend that organizations seriously consider updating their API security practices. This should include the following:
To implement these controls and processes, I recommend using the following open-source projects:
1. API Clarity for API discovery.
2. RESTler for REST API scanning and fuzzing.
3. API-firewall for REST API endpoints and real-time security.
If these trends continue, we could see up to 17 new API exploits per day. This already makes API security a significant cyber initiative for 2022 that will continue to require close attention from security teams and CISOs. Is your organization prepared to defend against these threats?

Firefox 103 addresses two particular issues for macOS, with a boost to overall performance, and specific improvements for high-refresh rate displays found on the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
Currently only the 14-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro have ProMotion displays. But these can run at up to 120MHz, and previous versions of Firefox have not correctly rendered sites when the display was on its fastest refresh rate.
Mozilla notes that the new Firefox 103.0 features "improved performance on high-refresh rate monitors (120Hz+)." It also has a more general improved, " responsiveness on macOS during periods of high CPU load by switching to a modern lock API."
Other fixes in Firefox 103.0 include keyboard controls to let users select buttons in the tabs toolbar. When a PDF form is rendered in Firefox, it will now highlight required fields.
"Enjoying Picture-in-Picture subtitles feature?" continues Mozilla. "It just got better: you can now change subtitles font size directly from the PiP window."
Firefox 103.0 also includes assorted security and other fixes. It is now available to obtain for free for the Mac.
The set of tools I’ll explore in this article will help you orchestrate workflows, create FAST broadcasts, and do multi-CDN worldwide live streaming management. Using all of these tools, you could get your own channel up and running and deliver it everywhere—even in China. These set of tools were demo’d for me. In order for me to test an application, vendors need to provide dummy data, and not everyone can make it available within our editorial timeframe.
Tedial is taking a step into providing a cloud taxi service between different media applications to enable best-of-breed workflow creation. For the past 20+ years, they’ve been known for their MAM solution, and they created smartWork as a no-code SaaS orchestration product to help less technical staff build workflows.
“When we talk about orchestration or business processes, it’s the set of steps needed to get media from one location to another,” says Tedial CTO Julian Fernandez-Campon. Previously connecting specific applications together required either someone who could work with each product’s API’s or hope your MAM could do this. “We have seen many [MAM] customers have suffered a lot,” he says. You don’t need to be a Tedial’s MAM customer to use this new product.
The product demo looked very straightforward and I’m looking forward to testing this application out in the future. Access to content storage, can be set up through drop-down menus to connect to cloud or on-prem archives. The marketplace interface is where you identify which vendors you want to connect from encoding, QC, CRM, CMS, AI, scheduling, and traffic. They can bring content in from files, camera cards, cable labs, and IMF formats for import. If there’s an upgrade for any part of your workflow, the system will allow automatic or manual installation for updates.
Each stage of the workflow can be assigned specific security requirements and their product aligns with the MovieLabs 2030 security guidelines. The security is oriented to the workflows. Specific access to an asset or workflow process can be assigned until conditions are met and then revoked. There is alerting functions to identify something which needs attention. My favorite is the “make sure this works” button, to test everything is connecting as it should before running a task.
This is a brand-spanking new product which they started building three years ago. Normally we wait a while to cover new products, but thought this was so compelling that we would make an exception. They have a number of customers right now: 2 in Spain, and 1 in Portugal, and a US customer sending content to 60 different platforms using their tool. “beIN sports in the UK are using our system to send to their platforms and in the Netherlands, we also have a couple of customers, like Red Bee,” says Fernandez-Campon.
The product is for use by both traditional broadcasters, as well as streaming media delivery. Fernandez-Campon says most customers need to supply content to streaming platforms, although it may not be their sole source of distribution. There is one customer with 250 different profiles to send content throughout Europe.
Their typical user is a media manager or someone who is preparing the content for distribution video editor. They support cloud, on-prem, and hybrid applications. Pricing is negotiated, via traditional CapEx model or SaaS.
“Frequency Studio empowers content owners and license holders to build and distribute what we call next-generation linear,” says Frank Chiu, Frequency SVP of product and platform. “It starts with content coming into our system. We have a whole bunch of processes to normalize and validate video. You can add ad breaks, overlays, graphics, interstitials, fallback experience, and scheduling to the channel.” The output is FAST or other scheduled programming, but I’m getting ahead of myself.
The team started 12 years ago running an owned and operated direct-to-consumer VOD service. Three years ago they developed Frequency Studio, which is a browser-based, cloud SaaS. The interface looks easy to use, like an EPG with specialized bells and whistles. Within the scheduling there is the ability to mix live and VOD playout on a schedule of your creation to create various X versions of programming playout.
“The hardest part of distributing linear channels is [supporting] all the different specifications, delivery protocols, and transport mechanism to distributors, as well as [providing] the EPG scheduling metadata,” he says.
Typical users include channel programmers, scheduling programmers, and content managers. Frequency Studio customers come from traditional broadcast, FAST distributors, local news, and digital-first companies, and they have customers who went from distributing 1 or 2 channels to now doing 50 or 100 at a time.
“The end output is much faster channel creation, better control of curating content, and very high scale. It used to take many people to run a legacy broadcast channel in the earliest phase of fast OTT linear channels in our world,” Chiu says.
While they are a SaaS platform, there’s still a bit which is somewhat managed as they validate content and distribution points initially. About 50% of their customers have started form scratch. They provide a tech check on ingestion pipeline, a round of training for the tool, a launch checklist, and support as needed.
What things do customers need help on? Best way to deliver content, metadata requirements per distributor, art formats, caption requirements, frequency and duration of ads, and even industry standards for ad load.
There’s a variety of business logic the platform has to replace previous manual programming. This includes inserting SCTE markers, black field detection, scheduling content, interstitials, and ad breaks. They can work with pointers to playlists for content being delivered on the fly for either VOD or live content. “We have something called Magic Wand which re-times ad breaks,” Chiu says, fitting them into the right amount of time allocated per platform.
Most commonly content is delivered as Media RSS feeds via cloud delivery, and they support multiple clouds as well as on-prem storage. A typical workflow use case: For a local news media company that runs 4–5 hours of daily news, Frequency Studio integrates with the customer’s CMS, which records and manages their live broadcast and ingest that separately from their short clips or episode VOD. They also program slots that are fallback content in case there is no newscast or whatever is scheduled for that time. “We’re listening to and ingesting live a newscast and re-airing it by actually systematically making changes on their schedule for each of the DMAs,” Chiu says.
They have a graphics tool included for creating four different categories of dynamic motion graphic, supporting triggers points for program start, program end, before ad break and coming back. Or they support After Effects integration to do more transformational graphics.
The provide monitoring, for uptime, blockiness, and even inclusion of expected ad breaks (for a configurable amount of time). Some of the QA/QC is through Interra Systems’ Orion OTT and Orion IP, all other functionality was developed within the product.
At NAB 2022, they showed a new tool called Connect which records all the technical information for playout historically for up to seven days, you can review down to the six-second increment for review or troubleshooting. I’m looking forward to trying this product out in the future. There is no public pricing.
Mlytics provides worldwide multi-CDN management. A couple areas their of focus include live streaming delivery and service into China, which they’ve offered since 2017. Unlike other CDN comparison tools that measure to the closest node, Mlytics measures to the origin.
“The issue is that [one specific CDN] cannot cover the entire world with equal high density in terms of servers,” says Mlytics Solutions Architect Tony Lepage. They help combine services of multiple CDNs to fill in the blind spots using real-time monitoring to make those decisions. “Basically, we monitor every 30 seconds.”
About 25% of Mlytics’ business is CDN management for live streaming and another 25% is for VOD (cacheable) content. You can make choices by latency or costs. In any location they provide a list of the closest edge nodes and track service levels. Customers can set configurable business rules to balance between latency and costs and can also set up customer routing rules.
“We are standardizing our pricing across the CDNs to make it easier,” says Lepage. “We try to simplify that and just charge by the gigabyte.”
I saw a product demo which showed an overview of a live account; the number of DNS queries, the amount of traffic, the number of requests. “You can mouse over to see performance of the different CDNs,” he says. “This measurement is round trip to your origin server, not to the cache node.” The analytics dashboard shows how much has been cached vs. what’s coming from the origin server, geographical traffic breakdown, routing decisions, performance, and costs. They will also handle billing if the customer prefers.
Based Taiwan, one of the things Mlytics does is help companies who want to office service to China. “All of these domain names [from Google] are blocked and the associated IP addresses are also blocked,” Lepage says. “Using a CDN that has a location close to China allows the origin server using the Google IP addresses to be hidden with a firewall. [This] gets all of the Google content from their server available inside of the mainland. We have a few customers who will come to us specifically with that use case.”
That’s one option; the other is they sell Chinese CDN services like Tencent and Alibaba. “When you onboard with them they ask, ‘Do you have an ICP [Internet Content Provider] License? If you don't have an ICP license, you can’t use any of the nodes within China, but you can use all the nodes in Tokyo, Taiwan, South Korea, and Hong Kong.”
“We’re trying to make that clearer for the customers because once they onboard, they shouldn't have any outages,” Lepage says. “As soon as we want to switch, it’s a three-second delay. It’s quite quick compared to making a DNS change [which can take 15 minutes or longer]. If customers are hesitant to put that code on the web site, we have virtual machines in every region that CDN vendors offer and we use those for monitoring instead.”
Mlytics has public pricing and both a self-serve tool, as well as managed service for custom projects.

Global accounting giant Sage is facing accusations it mis-sold software after customers bought perpetual licenses for products the vendor now says must move to a subscription model for technical reasons.
Earlier this month, The Register revealed Sage was advising customers with small business software Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50cloud Accounts v26.2 (published 2020) or below to move to subscription software because these packages use Transport Layer Security 1.0 and 1.1 – dated versions of the security protocol.
Sage is not offering customers the ability to patch or upgrade their software on a perpetual license. Those who have not moved to a subscription license by 30 September will lose access to their software and their data, according to a statement.
However, developers on a separate Sage platform, the cloud-based Intacct, were told in March 2018 to "Ensure your application is configured to negotiate connections using TLS 1.2 or higher."
The 2018 post explained: "Once Sage Intacct disables support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1, any browser or API access originating from a resource that does not support TLS 1.2 or higher will fail."
Customers with Sage 50 Accounts perpetual licenses activated after this date are arguing they were effectively missold the software because Sage knew it to be out of date with the communications protocol, knew it would need to be upgraded, and Sage planned to only offer that upgrade on a subscription license.
"[Sage] have sold a software to me on a perpetual license knowing that it's going to be invalid within an unknown period of time," one customer told The Register.
Users of the affected version of Sage 50 Accounts get a pop-up dialog box telling them to upgrade to 26.3 or 27, but when they try to obtain the software, only subscription options are available.
"They had full knowledge of this all happening. They are telling us to upgrade and they're refusing to provide [the] very software they're telling us to upgrade to," the customer said.
In Sage's terms and conditions [PDF] accompanying perpetual license purchases, it says users have a right to expect the software to be usable for 15 years provided they keep their systems up to date.
Meanwhile, The Register understands that customers have been offered refunds on recently purchased upgrade packages, a refund of time remaining on the 15-year perpetual license when they move to the subscription model, and a 12 months free subscription.
In correspondence seen by The Register, Sage appeared to admit some customers had the right to expect their perpetual licenses to be valid for a longer period than they will be.
Nonetheless, customers are still arguing they will be worse off under subscription licenses, even with the new offers. A perpetual license might cost £650 (c $790) while a subscription for Sage 50cloud Professional costs £145 ($176) per month. A Sage 50cloud Standard subscription costs £72 (c $87) per month. Customers are likely to be worse off paying a subscription license after less than a year.
Earlier this month, a Sage spokesperson said: "TLS v1.0 and v1.1 is an industry-wide security protocol that is used to facilitate privacy and data security for communications over the internet. The stability and security of the protocol is the core focus, not the age of it. The need to amend to a new protocol occurred following the launch of our products and after the Internet Engineering Task Force (IEFT) formally discouraged the use of it."
They added: "Sage communicated with its customers about this, the action they needed to take, and how we could support them. We will always prioritize the security of our products and protect customer data in accordance with the latest industry standards, today and for the future."
We asked why Sage can't update v24 and after to use TLS1.2 to verify software licensing, and were told: "We recognize that due to these changes to the TLS Protocol, our customers will be impacted in different ways. Providing temporary patches is not the most effective solution in this instance, but ensuring that the systems provided by Sage are continually up to date is key for businesses to operate effectively and securely. The change required is a simple process for customers on the latest versions of our software, and we are ready to support all customers to make the changes so they are secure and have the best experience."
When asked whether customers would lose access to their data, the spokesperson said: "No. We have communicated with customers about the options available to them. If the customer upgrades to a compatible version of Sage 50 Accounts, they will continue to access their data. If they do not wish to upgrade, they can export their data before the cut-off date in September. We appreciate this will impact customers in different ways and our customer contact team is happy to discuss needs on an individual basis."
The Register asked Sage to comment and it sent this statement:
"Software platforms are built in different ways and as such giving prior notice to upcoming changes in terms of security protocols and other technological changes is standard practice.
"The stability and security of The Transport Layer Security protocol is the core focus, not the age of it. The need to amend to a new protocol occurred following the launch of our Sage50 products and after the Internet Engineering Task Force (IEFT) formally discouraged the use of it.
"Any customer with an active support contract or subscription has access to the latest version without any cost to them. We appreciate this will impact customers in different ways and our customer contact team is happy to discuss needs on an individual basis." ®

Solimar Systems, Inc., the provider of leading workflow software solutions for print production and digital communications, has released version 9.2 of its dynamic output management suite, Solimar Print Director Enterprise (SPDE).
SPDE plays a crucial role in the overall Solimar Chemistry platform, providing an onramp to PDF-centric workflows while offering robust data optimizations, conversions, job management, and device connectivity for non-PDF workflows. SPDE connects host computers to production print devices that normally do not directly interact, to provide a powerful enterprise output management system.
Enhanced with new capabilities to expand its application and ease of use, SPDE version 9.2 features an intuitive operator interface for improved overall job control, enhanced IPP security for compliance, and introduces new Job Definition Format (JDF) compatibility to better control finishing elements of the print process.
JDF Finishing Controls remove the need to convert PDF files into PostScript or other formats to further optimize the workflow. PDF finishing information in SPDE 9.2 is controlled by a rules-based system of JDF commands using conditional logic to map PDF file finishing commands to the required JDF format, saving processing and production time. Printers can now edit, maintain and add finishing commands throughout a PDF workflow, even when the source file is not PDF, thus supporting multiple industry standards.
With Solimar’s continued focus on data security, the Secure IPP Print Server within SPDE 9.2 now features additional authentication support, further strengthening this crucial capability. Other enhancements include an expanded API for the submission of jobs, font upgrades, and job ticket conversions.
The award-winning ReadyPDF optimization module has been enhanced in version 9.2 with new features to expand its applications and simplify its user interface. ReadyPDF now includes a new Preflight Mode that can detect certain PDF characteristics, such as image and text properties, and invoke necessary optimizations as needed. For example, if a user needs to flatten transparencies in a PDF, ReadyPDF can determine if there are transparency elements in the file. If no transparency elements are used, those jobs can bypass the flattening process, saving significant processing time.
ReadyPDF is available as a module within SPDE 9.2 and as a stand-alone subscription offering, ReadyPDF Prepress Server.
These additional capabilities underscore the flexibility and utility of SPDE for managing high-volume variable print. SPDE not only allows users to flexibly integrate various applications and printing systems, but to do so across a broad spectrum of data streams including AFP, IPDS, Xerox VIPP, PostScript, PCL, Xerox DJDE/Metacode, TIFF, and PDF. Moreover, SPDE is integrated with other components of the Solimar Chemistry™ platform to enable intelligent batching, job and piece-level tracking, postal optimization and other valuable capabilities."
Mary Ann Rowan, Chief Experience Officer at Solimar Systems, comments: “We're thrilled to bring these major upgrades to our global customers. Some early adopters have shared that they are now able to retain jobs in-house that were previously outsourced which improves their overall ROI.” Rowan continues, “SPDE 9.2, and all of our innovative products, are off-the-shelf configurable by end users and do not require coding or custom services. Solimar solutions are available through our extensive partner network enabling customers to choose the best solutions for their production environment. This makes Solimar the preferred partner for many global businesses.”
