We tackle the top malware detections in manufacturing networks, based on data from the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ infrastructure, review the common security threats to the manufacturing industry, and discuss how cybersecurity can be improved.Read More
Telecommunications or telecom technology is the underpinning of the modern internet, and consequently, the internet’s growing segment, the internet of things (IoT). At its best, this relationship is exemplified as advances in network connectivity as we move to 5G. In our paper with Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), “Cyber-Telecom Crime Report 2019,” we explore how this relationship can also be used to threaten and defraud the IoT.Read More
Many devices such as cameras, printers, and routers use UPnP to make it easy for them to automatically discover and vet other devices on a local network and communicate with each other for data sharing or media streaming. UPnP works with network protocols to configure communications in the network. But with its convenience comes security holes that range from attackers gaining control of devices to bypassing firewall protections.
We looked into UPnP-related events in home networks and found that many users still have UPnP enabled in their devices.Read More
In our latest research we tested possible threat scenarios against complex IoT environments such as in smart homes and smart buildings. A significant part of the research also involved a look into exposed automation platforms or servers, which are integral components of complex IoT environments.Read More
