I’m one of those people who takes time at the new year to define personal objectives for the forthcoming year, some of which I actually achieve.

Enterprise IT should be doing the same thing for cloud computing.Here are my three suggestions for IT’s ...
At the end of September, Palo Alto released a report on Unit42 activity where they – among other things – talked about PYLOT malware. We have been detecting attacks that have employed the use of this backdoor since at least 2015 and refer to it as Travle.

Coincidentally, KL was recently involved in an investigation of a successful attack where Travle was detected, during which we conducted a deep analysis of this malware.
Two-decade-old hole lets hackers unlock encrypted data A 19-year-old vulnerability in the TLS network security protocol has been found in the software of at least eight IT vendors and open-source projects – and the bug could allow an attacker to decryp...
Sites vulnerable to newly revived ROBOT exploit included Facebook and PayPal.

Still Stealing

Two years ago we published a blogpost about a popular malware that was being distributed from the Google Play Store.
In October and November 2017 we found 85 new malicious apps on Google Play that are stealing credentials for VK.com
Richard Jacobs, an ex-security official at Uber, testified in court Tuesday.
Welcome to ransomware in 2017 – the year global enterprises and industrial systems were added to the ever-growing list of victims, and targeted attackers started taking a serious interest in the threat. It was also a year of consistently high attack numbers, but limited innovation.

So we randomly took several different connected devices and reviewed their security set up.
Bleichenbacher, the name that always chills cryptographers' blood If you're an F5 BIG-IP sysadmin, get patching: there's a bug in the company's RSA implementation that can give an attacker access to encrypted messages.…
Morgan Marquis-Boire resigned from Citizen Lab back in September 2017.
In 2017, the main global threat to users was ransomware: and in order to recover files and data encrypted by attackers, victims were required to pay a ransom in cryptocurrency.
In the first eight months of 2017, Kaspersky Lab products protected 1.65 million users from malicious cryptocurrency miners, and by the end of the year we expect this number to exceed two million.
Looking back at a year like 2017 brings the internal conflict of being a security researcher into full view: on the one hand, each new event is an exciting new research avenue for us, as what were once theoretical problems find palpable expression in reality. On the other hand, as people with a heightened concern for the security posture of users at large, each event is a bigger catastrophe.
