The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has published advisory ICSA-21-119-04 about vulnerabilities found in multiple real-time operating systems (RTOS) and supporting libraries. Those operating systems and libraries are widely used in smart, Internet-connected “things” or as everyone else calls it, the Internet of Things (IoT). The number of affected devices could be enormous.
As per normal, the collection of vulnerabilities has been given a name: BadAlloc. CISA has assigned a vulnerability score of 9.8 out of a maximum of 10 for the BadAlloc vulnerabilities and has urged organizations to address these issues as soon as possible. “Bad_Alloc” is derived from C++.
On Thursday, Microsoft blog published a similar warning.
For now, there has not been indications of these vulnerabilities being exploited, but given the amount of available targets, you can be sure exploits are being sought. Unlike computers, Internet-connected devices can be difficult, or even impossible to update. Because of that, mitigating against these issues could be extremely important for years to come. The main problem is that they will require a multitude of resources to install all the necessary patches or updates. They will also required to be installed millions of devices.
BLAKFX has the solution to data security with the Internet of Things.
BLAKFX is pioneering D2D Encryption.
Our Motto: In Math We Trust
The Helix22 data security SDK protects data on every device it is installed upon. This means that it protects all data and at all time whether on your system, your mobile device or your TV. It also protects all data while at rest, in use and in transit.
Helix22 delivers all this security assurance very confidently due to our genius engineering team spearheaded by Robert Statica and Alex Maslov who have invented a revolutionary model for data security that required an innovative look at the problem. The approach we took was to protect the data itself. Almost all other data security products try to build a perimeter or being fanatic on user identification. However, once the product is breached or a password is stolen, your firm/nations data is in the clear.
You see, the Helix22 cryptography is embedded with the data itself through our inventive and multi–patented process of DNA BindingTM. Therefore, even if a breach were to occur the data cannot be exfiltrated. This means that all your firm/nations data is 100% protected regardless of the type of attack. Further, Helix22 protects data at rest, in use and in transit. No other data security can make that claim. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning experimentation runs and generates incalculable amounts of data. All is protected at its inception.
Our patented DNA BindingTM cryptography is also quantum immune.
We can make this claim as the tech engineers at BLAKFX invented and patented a genuine device2device (D2D) encryption. We manage data security transmission through the truly brilliant and also patented universal Helix22 key service. The Helix22 encryption originates on your network or device, not just when the app is opened. This means, that when data arrives to our key server, it is already encrypted so all it needs to do is issue another key. Signal and Telegram cannot claim this level of security. This key will then only work with the intended device, which generates a matching key required to open the data. In this protocol, we are truly a “zero-knowledge” server so your communications and transmissions remain completely top secret. Even in the event that BLAKFX were subpoenaed, we can honor the request by just handing over the encrypted content…as that is literally all we have. Helix22 also only use keys just one-time and then destroys them. This way the data security is future forward prefect. Therefore, in our unique device-to-device encryption (D2D) world, there is no opportunity at all for any data leak.
This same protocol just described, can be the same with all your 3rd party vendors and suppliers. It does not matter in the least what platform they are running or what device they are using or even the type of data, it is all 100% protected. We do however, strongly advise that all firms involved be utilizing Helix22 due to the nature of the data content. Helix22 can ensure that whatever data they are generating is protected as well.
Let’s take it a step further. Even if your organization were a victim of an internal attack or a victim of malicious open source downloads, there is no reason for concern. Any data that has been forwarded, downloaded, copied or saved cannot be exfiltrated. Period. We have the technology industries foremost data packets which are protected with multi-layered, military grade encryption algorithms that have already proven the ability to withstand penetration testing from MI5 and quantum computing attacks.
One final practical genius of DNA BindingTM is in that it is immediately compatible with whichever system or software you are utilizing. Therefore, any organization can forward information to another and then discuss it and there is immediate privacy.
BLAKFX is Based on Proven Success
Our founders, Robert Statica PhD and Kara Coppa, also founded Wickr, which is used by the US military and has never been hacked since its inception in 2012. The Helix22 data security SDK is several generations enhanced since then. Dr. Statica also delivered the encryption for the world’s most secure phone, Katim.

Finally, the Helix22 encryption is quantum computing ready so no need to redo all your data security methodologies in a couple of years when everything else becomes obsolete.
We like to refer to Helix22 as “22nd Century Data Security.”
