Security experts: "It would’ve taken ‘airport like security’ to stop Vegas shooter"

by: Robert Goulston Updated: Oct 3, 2017 – 9:24 PM

BOSTON – Concerns over hotel security have grown after Stephen Paddock managed to sneak 23 guns into the suite on the 32nd floor at the Mandalay Bay hotel and open fire on hundreds of concertgoers.

The Mandalay Bay hotel security is now under intense scrutiny, but investigators say the hotel did “nothing wrong”. Visitors to Boston hotels tell Boston 25 News reporter Robert Goulston that they are thinking about what happened in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

“It just really shocked me that someone could carry that many weapons and that much ammo without being checked,” Karen Padgett says. Boston 25 News spoke with Global Rescue, a group that provides intelligence to corporations around the world in order to help them better assess security for their employees.

Joe Mroszcyzyk, the Manager of Intelligence Products and Services at Global Rescue say that, regarding hotel security, he “doesn’t think there’s much they can do unless they do implement metal detectors at the front door”.

“I think it would require a trend of this type of behavior for a hotel to really consider investing those kinds of resources into harder security,” Mroszcyzyk adds. Marriott International, one of the biggest hotel chains in the country says that “each of (their) properties is unique, so individual security measures are tailored to each individual hotel” . they also add that they “typically re-evaluate (their security measures) after tragic acts like this happen to determine what, if any, changes may need to be made”.

“A lot of it is determined by risk and threats that still exist,” Mroszcyzyk said. Global Rescue says intelligence sharing is the key to preventing these tragedies from happening . Boston Police say that’s exactly what they do as they are working closely with all of the city’s major hotels and even training with them.

Since 2015, BPD has done more than 175 active shooter drills to ensure proper hotel security training .

However, hotel guests are still not at ease and say there’s always going to be a risk.

“It’s a free society and there’s only so much we can do,” says Hank Jackson.

“If we allow this, they will in fact destroy our society and I’m not for that,” says Cindy Jackson.

  • Here’s the latest security bug your computer could be exposed by

    A newly discovered firmware vulnerability could leave countless Windows and Mac computers at risk from a hack, according to security researchers from Duo Labs1 . The vulnerability could be used by malware to gain deep access to systems. The bug involves the extensible firmware interface, or EFI, which is the first bit of code that runs when you hit the power button – part of its responsibilities include validating the software that’s running on the machine. Based on tests on 74,000 Apple Macs, the Duo Labs team found that the EFI firmware was not always being updated at the same time as the operating system, leaving a security hole that could potentially be exploited . The vulnerability could also affect Windows PCs, the researchers say2.

    Risk assessment

    The good news is that a hack taking advantage of the EFI vulnerability would need to be quite a complex one, and it’s only really worth the trouble if you’ve got some pretty important data locked away on your machine. What’s more, Duo Labs says it hasn’t spotted anyone actively making use of this security loophole yet – it’s working with Apple and other computer makers to get the bug patched. “For most people in most situations, the risk is currently not severe,” the researchers say. If you’re on a Mac machine, updating to the latest version of the software (macOS High Sierra) is enough to squash the vulnerability .

    For more details about how the security vulnerability works and how to guard against an attack, see the Duo Labs blog3.
