    For users who are not system administrators, the biggest impact of the Heartbleed vulnerability has been all the passwords that they have had to change. This, together with improvements in alternative authentication methods (like the fingerprint scanners now embedded in flagship smartphones), have caused some rather bold statements about passwords to be made.

    The Russian Underground has been around (in an organized manner) since 2004, and has been used both as a marketplace and an information exchange platform.

    Before the end of the month, we will release a new paper in our Cybercriminal Underground Economy Series titled Russian Underground Revisited. This is a followup to our earlier paper Russian Underground 101; both papers examined the Russian Underground and looked at the goods and services being sold inside these underground communities.

    The year so far has been a particularly stressful one for enterprise IT staff. Early in the year, concerns over data breaches and point of sale POS malware gave retailers something to worry about. The long-simmering headache of Windows XP migration came to a head when support for the venerable OS ended in April. That would normally have been the security headline of the month, but a vulnerability in OpenSSL known as Heartbleed reared its less than welcome head. All in all, then, IT ...
