BlackBerry Cylance Guidance on Bypass Disclosure

NEWS / 07.18.19 / The Cylance Team

BlackBerry® Cylance® is aware that a bypass has been publicly disclosed by security researchers. We have verified there is an issue with CylancePROTECT® which can be leveraged to bypass the anti-malware component of the product.

Our research and development teams have identified a solution and will release a hotfix automatically to all customers running current versions in the next few days.

More information will be provided as soon as it is available.

***UPDATE - SUNDAY 7/21/2019: Resolution for BlackBerry Cylance Bypass

BlackBerry Cylance has verified the issue was not a universal bypass as reported, but rather a technique that allowed for one of the anti-malware components of the product to be bypassed in certain circumstances. The issue has been resolved for cloud-based scoring and a new agent will be rolled out to endpoints in the next few days. MORE INFO HERE.
