Big raise for AI-powered construction tech bringing "Street View" to builders
OpenSpace, a company that utilizes helmet-mounted cameras and some fancy stitching software to create "Street View"-like scenes of jobs in progress, has just landed $14 million in Series A funding. The company's tech is deployed globally in construction projects worth more than $50 billion. I covered OpenSpace last year when the company emerged from stealth. "Office workers have had the ability to create, edit, share, and revisit their work for a long time, but that has never truly existed in the construction industry," Jeevan Kalanithi, co-founder of OpenSpace, told ZDNet at the time. "That's because creating, storing, searching, localizing, and indexing visual data from the real world has never really been possible until now."

Cisco Reveals Zero-Day VPN Bug Without a Fix

Cisco | November 06, 2020

Cisco doesn’t yet have a fix for a zero-day vulnerability in the Linux, MacOS, and Windows versions of its virtual private network (VPN) software, AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. While Cisco says it isn’t aware of any instances in which attackers have exploited the vulnerability, in a security advisory updated late Thursday, the vendor warned that a proof-of-concept exploit code is available, and this would make it significantly easier to take advantage of the flaw. The high-severity bug, CVE-2020-3556, earned a CVSS score of 7.3 and is an arbitrary code execution vulnerability in the interprocess communication (IPC) channel of Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client software. It’s due to a lack of authentication to the IPC listener, and attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted IPC messages to the AnyConnect client IPC listener. If exploited, an attacker could execute a malicious script via the targeted AnyConnect user.
