Cybersecurity is a constant battle.
Of course, SOC Analysis is a high burnout job. After 17 years in the cybersecurity field, directly and indirectly, the refusal to see security as a critical business process will burn out the most idealistic and enthusiastic practitioner. If the employee has to face dismissive administration on a daily basis, how do you think they'll react? I'm surprised that more insider threats don't come from the cybersecurity professionals after being treated like a leper for most of their careers. Our jobs aren't to make life harder for the users, but for the cybercriminals that take advantage of them. Somehow, through cultural pressure, the cybersecurity professional has become almost a derogatory term thanks to the lack of understanding from management perspectives. We have to lead up the chain of authority but we've become Sisyphus pushing the cybersecurity boulder up the hill for all eternity because it's not the easiest solution. We need support from our co-workers and especially our leadership to take security more seriously.

Enterprise Vulnerabilities
From DHS/US-CERT's National Vulnerability Database
CVE-2017-9317
PUBLISHED: 2018-05-23
Privilege escalation vulnerability found in some Dahua IP devices. Attacker in possession of low privilege account can gain access to credential information of high privilege account and further obtain device information or attack the device.
CVE-2018-1193
PUBLISHED: 2018-05-23
Cloud Foundry routing-release, versions prior to 0.175.0, lacks sanitization for user-provided X-Forwarded-Proto headers. A remote user can set the X-Forwarded-Proto header in a request to potentially bypass an application requirement to only respond over secure connections.
CVE-2018-1122
PUBLISHED: 2018-05-23
procps-ng before version 3.3.15 is vulnerable to a local privilege escalation in top. If a user runs top with HOME unset in an attacker-controlled directory, the attacker could achieve privilege escalation by exploiting one of several vulnerabilities in the config_file() function.
CVE-2018-1123
PUBLISHED: 2018-05-23
procps-ng before version 3.3.15 is vulnerable to a denial of service in ps via mmap buffer overflow. Inbuilt protection in ps maps a guard page at the end of the overflowed buffer, ensuring that the impact of this flaw is limited to a crash (temporary denial of service).
CVE-2018-1125
PUBLISHED: 2018-05-23
procps-ng before version 3.3.15 is vulnerable to a stack buffer overflow in pgrep. This vulnerability is mitigated by FORTIFY, as it involves strncat() to a stack-allocated string. When pgrep is compiled with FORTIFY (as on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora), the impact is limited to a crash.
