In your latest security audit for the emerging tech firm, Franklin & Turner Solutions, you had an insightful conversation with their Lead IT Specialist, Ms. Lisa Hamilton. She revealed that the firm relies on an older version of Oracle's database software, Oracle 10g, for maintaining its client records. Learning this, you decide to probe into whether there are any known vulnerabilities associated specifically with Oracle 10g that need to be highlighted in your report to Ms. Hamilton. At this point, you are not aware of any patches or software fixes that Ms. Hamilton might have applied. Your goal is to deliver a Draft Communication Report with generalized insights along with the implication to the devices and systems at the company.
a. Given this scenario, compile a memo for Ms. Hamilton detailing any CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) you've found that are linked with Oracle 10g. Specifically, focus on CVE-2012-1675. Your memo should elucidate the nature of the vulnerability, the potential risks it poses, and recommendations to mitigate these risks. Be sure to structure your memo in a way that promotes informed decision-making, without inciting undue fear or confusion.
b. Research and analyze the relationship between IoT (Internet of Things) devices and the increase in DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. What makes these devices susceptible, and how have these vulnerabilities been exploited in recent high-profile attacks? In your report, provide recommendations for securing IoT devices against such attacks.
