What have I read the past few days?

Hi folks,

Here is some of what I’ve read the past 4 to 5 days.

It looks ,like Yahoo is at it with the biggest breach we’ve ever seem. First, from Trend Micro Think changing your Yahoo password is enough? Think again is the first article from Trend Micro. Then, we have Yahoo Breach: It’s Time to Keep Those Password Safe but both articles are needing to be read and I personally don’t think that it matters the order.

Ransomware is back in the news. This time, its a 172 percent rise as we learn How to Protect Yourself Against Ransomware – Part 1 and it is a great read. Goes back to the prior articles I’ve posted including phishing in the E-mail, and other odds and ends.

Next, in the business E-mail compromise department, we have the biggest heist I’ve ever seen in this article from trend micro Yet another company lost $6M to #BEC, and it could be a result of poorly implemented security protocol. and I don’t see this going away any time soon. If I were you, I’d search out these articles so you can learn how to protect your self and your business, especially if you’re a small business. BEC scams are not picky.

We even have more from the POS department, the same payment systems we use every day and had malware which captured credit cards and other data. This time: PoS Malware: Old Dog Learns New Tricks and it can’t be good.

In the hospital field, some 4 days ago or so, I read something about pagers and hospitals and the types of issues that can be found with that technology today. This article entitled Leaking Beeps: Here’s A Reason to Kick Pagers out of Hospitals and this one practically scared me. I wonder what the data was that was being transmitted, and what they’ll have to use next? What about the fax machines they use?

In the sex department, where sex and tech meet, sadly not in a good way with this article, Kids as young as 10 caught sending nude photos in #sexting scandal and some disgression should be taken when reading this one.

I think this is it for now, went several days back. Come and comment if you wish.
