Things I’ve been reading for the past while

Hi folks,

I know I’m probably so late with some of these, its been busy with my schedule. I want to post the things I think people should check out for the last few days. Please feel free to check out my twitter feed to see what I tweet, maybe something will be of interest that I post after I read it. For other social media options, Go to my network home page and select the heading for social media. Thanks for reading!

  • From hackers’ point of views: New study exposes their strategies Trend Micro This article I just read today. It was interesting to hear what they’re after and maybe a little on how things are done. Forward thinking on maybe how to prottect ourselves a bit? Not sure, but the thought of this was interesting.
  • How Mobile Phones Turn Into A Corporate Threat Trend Micro We use mobile phones now more than ever. I went in kicking and screaming about the iphone, and in some ways, I’m happy I have mine. It has helped me when I’ve gotten lost, and it helps me know when the MTA bus comes so I can plan my trip. It also gets me off the bus, when the AVA (automated voice announcement) system does not call stops. Now, they can connect to E-mail through the various gateways, and we can be productive while not at a computer. With this convenience, this causes risks, and some of them can be prevented such as not opening attachments because there is malware being developed for the phone, and that can be transmitted in to the corporate environment, for example. This one should be checked out if nothing else.
  • 3 overlooked endpoints for cyber attacks and how to protect them Trend Micro This has three bullet points and links to other information for further reading. If you care about such things, this article is a must read.
  • 5 ways machine learning can be used for security today Trend Micro this article talks about how machine learning can help with protection. Next Generation scanners are coming, and Trend Micro has been doing this type of work for many years.
  • Cerber Starts Evading Machine Learning Trend Micro this article talks about Cerber, a worm, that is being trained to evade detection from the above machine learning technique, so it can stay around. Very clever stuff.
  • How and Why the Phishing Threat Landscape Has Changed A forward looking blog post talking about the real world risks of the phishing landscape and what we should expect now. This is real world information, and something that people should check out.
  • In a bit of good news, Krebs On Security gives us an article I thought was worth tweeting about. Alleged vDOS Owners Poised to Stand Trial is the article. We’ve covered this operation on the blog before, and this is good reporting here by Brian. Now, people are being caught, and we can’t hide, even if we did use a VPN as someone can always know who we are.
  • Last Pass has been busy as of late, and Security Update for the LastPass Extension from Last Pass talks about the latest. Security Now has been covering the various bugs that Google’s Tavis Ormondy has been finding, and these are big things which Lastpass has been right on top of. These guys are very serious on their work, and I don’t see any change in that, even though, I believe they were baught out, by another company if I remember right. Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought I saw that one somewhere.
  • CVE-2017-0022: Microsoft Patches a Vulnerability Exploited by AdGholas and Neutrino Trend Micro This article is better late than never. This talks about a bug which was fixed which exploit kits have been taking advantage of.
  • Microsoft Patch Tuesday of March 2017: 18 Security Bulletins; 9 Rated Critical, 9 Important Trend Micro talks about the patch Tuesday which was this past March’s list of changes. No reason really on why Microsoft delayed February, so we got a bunch.

There is more that you could read, but this will keep you busy for awhile. I’ll try to get more articles out on a timely manner with in a day of me reading stuff so that I can talk about them more. Any thoughts on this list? Do let me know your thoughts.
