    A supposed airline hack and other similar incidences this past quarter have made it clear: Attackers are finding more inventive ways to infiltrate and abuse existing technologies. This signals a rise in threats that go beyond just stealing data, and whose effects are more physical, evident, or close to home. Take for instance the increasing number of attacks involving routers and DNS changer detections, particularly in Brazil, which accounted for 81% of the total number of DNS changer detections in 2Q. ...




    Earlier this week Oracle's CSO released a blog post that talked about why people should stop looking for vulnerabilities in their software products. Needless to say, this did not go down well with the security community - and the post was soon taken down with a statement from the company adding that the post "does not reflect our beliefs or our relationship with our customers." Security through obscurity doesn't work, and that is what Oracle's CSO was in effect promoting when it comes to ...




    2015 has so far been a very busy year for security researchers. The data leaked from Hacking Team shocked many, thanks to the multiple zero-days that were disclosed, as well as emails discussing the unscrupulous trade in exploits and "tools". Cybercriminals (including exploit kit authors) have been hard at work integrating these newly-discovered flaws into their "products" to victimize more people and organizations; meanwhile vendors have been racing to provide users with security updates. This is a good time to see how the ...

But imagine how riskier it is if a hacker can do all this remotely, especially now that a number of fuel companies worldwide use Internet-connected systems to monitor their tanks. As we shared in our presentation in BlackHat today, we wanted to test the security of these automated gas ...

    July has been a fairly poor month for Adobe Flash Player security, to say the least. Three separate zero-day vulnerabilities (all courtesy of the Hacking Team dump) have left many people concerned about Flash security, with many (including this blog) calling for it to go away. Some sort of reaction from Adobe to improve Flash security was inevitable. The recent version of Flash, version (18.0.0.209), includes several additional mitigation techniques. These were developed by Adobe, working together with Google's Project Zero. The ...
