What has been going on in the security landscape since we’ve spoken last, news ending Tuesday, September 29, 2020

I’ve been dealing with techincal issues which I think I finally resolved, so we”re going to extend the news notes till today. I hope that everyone is doing well, and that you will find something of interest from the going ons of the past week. Thanks so much for reading!


In an earlier podcast of the Security Box, and coming up as part of podcast 12, we learn more about due diligence. Please read the show notes on podcast 10 to get the first article. In the news this week, Brian Krebs asks the question: Who is Tech Investor John Bernard? Instead of quoting anything from it, let us just let you read it and we can discuss it on the security box. I honestly think that it’ll definitely be worth the read.


Govt. Services Firm Tyler Technologies Hit in Apparent Ransomware Attack was reported through Krebs on Security and also through Trend Micro’s news ending September 25, 2020. This is notable because this is a big player in software and other tech services for the government. This company is based in Texas, and it just goes to show what can happen to any size business.


If you haven’t seen this, This Week in Security News: Cybercriminals Distribute Backdoor with VPN Installer and New ‘Alien’ Malware can Steal Passwords from 226 Android Apps covers the Texas issue as well as other things that you might find of value. If you find something of value, I’d love to hear it from you.


September 29th braught a few different items to the table in the security and phishing landscape. On this entry, APWG has some very interesting news of interest I thought that we would cover in regards to the show but yet we can also talk about it here. The article: APWG: SSL Certificates No Longer Indication of Safe Browsing is what I want to bring up here. I may have a longer in depth article on this one, because I think it is worth talking about. I hope that people find this of interest.


The last item that we have for this time, is some very interesting news coming out of Trend Micro. This particular thing may also be talked about in a future article here, and it is yet another threat. This time: Royal Ripper: Multi-Stage Phishing Attack Adapts to Victim Input is the article and i bet that you all will want to talk about this one.



Found something you wanted us to talk about? I know we’re behind and now that we’re fixed, we can definitely chat. I hope that we can do so by you sending me an email/imessage/textmessage/whats app or even giving me a phone call. I hope that we can chat, and I hope to be back blogging more often now that i have things settled down now. Thanks for contacting me and having an interest in the blog.
