Security industry leader urges customers to audit for and prevent widespread damage from newly resurfaced threat to numerous Windows applications.

eEye Digital Security, a leading provider of IT security vulnerability management solutions, today announced that its solutions prevent DLL Hijacking in Windows systems.

DLL Hijacking, a Microsoft Windows design flaw that has existed for 10 years, recently resurfaced as a major security concern among organizations. Its ability to affect any number of Windows applications within an environment makes it particularly difficult to mitigate and protect against.

eEye announced specific audits now in its Retina Vulnerability Management and Blink Endpoint Protection solutions that identify DLL Hijacking vulnerabilities and prevent their exploit.

The company urges its customers to protect against DLL Hijacking by using a solution that audits the network and reports which applications are vulnerable, as well as protects against known and unknown vulnerabilities.

“Prevention and mitigation for the DLL Hijacking vulnerability are particularly difficult because it can affect any number of applications. There’s not just a single patch,” said Marc Maiffret, eEye CTO and co-founder. “We’ve guided our customers to use Retina and Blink to make sure they’re protected against the potentially widespread, long-term damage of DLL Hijacking.”
