    We recently wrote about the difference between cybercrime and a cyber war, which narrows down to the attack's intent. With the same intent of gaining information to use against targets, cybercriminals and attackers tend to stress less importance in their choice of "tools", as these campaigns are all about who carries out the attack. Ultimately, a simple equation can be drawn from these observations, in which a highly successful attack is composed of the attack's intent and the right tools. Our newest ...

The newest version, Internet Explorer 11, does not suffer from this vulnerability. If exploited, this vulnerability allows an attacker to target users with a drive-by download, allowing files to be downloaded and run user ...




    Over the holidays, it was reported that malicious ads had appeared on various Yahoo sites and affected users in Europe. Two claims about this attack have been made: first, that it affected "millions" of users, and secondly, that it was used to plant Bitcoin miners on affected computers.
