  1. By Adrienne Hall, General Manager, Trustworthy Computing Group 24 Jan 2014 9:27 AM Recently, a select number of Microsoft employees’ social media and email accounts were subjected to targeted phishing attacks. This type of attack is not uncommon, and many companies grapple with phishing attempts from cybercriminals (visit www.microsoft.com/sir). While our investigation continues, we have learned that there was unauthorized access to certain employee email accounts, and information contained in those accounts could be disclosed. It appears that documents associated with law enforcement inquiri
  2. By Manish Singh on February 11, 2014 - 07:18PM Internet, much like the real world, has bad people too. And while the digital security of the entire planet seems to be a train-wreck, things are even worse in India. According to Microsoft’s third annual Computing Safety Index (MCSI)​ report, 20% Indians are the victims of online phishing attacks. The victims in this case lose around Rs. 7500 ($120 USD) on average. “About 12 per cent Indian respondents said they suffered identity theft at an average cost them Rs 7,500," the MSCI states. Whereas the annual worldwide impact of phishing and identi

Adam Clark Estes January 13, 2014 4:00pm As you probably suspected, the NSA’s massive phone record collection “has had no discernible impact on preventing acts of terrorism,” according to a new study. In fact—and perhaps more interestingly—the agency’s real problem isn’t a lack of information. It’s an excess of secrecy. In the study, the New America Foundation reviewed 225 terrorism cases and found that traditional investigation and law enforcement methods actually did the most to prevent attacks. About a third of the leads in terrorism cases came from tips or an informant, while old school
  4. Germany's aeronautics and space research center has for months been the target of a suspected cyber attack by a foreign intelligence service, a German news weekly reported Sunday. Der Spiegel said that several computers used by scientists and systems administrators at the Cologne-based DLR center had been infiltrated by spy programs. "The government classes the attack as extremely serious because it, among other things, is aimed at armament and rocket technologies," Spiegel said. In some computers IT experts found traces of spy programs that were set up to destroy themselves on discovery, w
  5. UPDATE – UltraDNS said it has mitigated a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack for most of its customers after the service was held down for most of the day. “Currently, only customers utilizing a segment of UltraDNS Name Server addresses are experiencing resolution latency due to intermittent network saturation in the Western US,” said Neustar director of product management, security solutions, Jim Fink in an email to Threatpost. “We continue to aggressively refine mitigations for these customers and hope to have the issue resolved shortly. We have been and will continue to provide reg
  6. Threat researchers from Cisco have shared details on a new and rapidly spreading attack targeting web servers running on systems powered by outdated versions of Linux. According to Cisco, upward of 400 different hosts were affected each day on March 17 and 18, with attackers successfully compromising more than 2,700 URLs at the time of publishing. The attackers are compromising legitimate websites, Cisco said, with most of the affected web servers running on the Linux 2.6 kernel—an outdated version that was first released in 2003. The location of compromised servers have been found through
