  1. The Intel Support Assistant is the latest Windows utility to be found that could expose millions of computers to privilege-escalation attacks through file manipulation and symbolic links. Intel issued a patch on Nov. 10, fixing a vulnerability in the way the Intel Support Assistant interacts with files that could impact millions of Windows systems and could lead to privilege-escalation attacks. The vulnerability is the latest issue disclosed by access-security firm CyberArk during an 18-month effort to seek out specific types of patterns that could le
  2. A surfer who refers to himself as "shark bait" has been hospitalized after a shark attack during an early morning surf on the NSW mid-north coast. The man received five deep lacerations to one of his lower legs when he was bitten by a shark at Nambucca Heads after 7am on Sunday, a NSW Ambulance spokesman said. Joel Mason, 36, managed to swim to a nearby break wall, where a passer-by saw him and contacted emergency services. He was treated at the scene before being flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, where he's in a stable condition.
  3. Why block them when you can fool them? New tool sets traps for hackers The method, called DEEP-Dig (DEcEPtion DIGging), ushers intruders into a decoy site so the computer can learn from hackers’ tactics. Instead of blocking hackers, the researchers have created a new cybersecurity defence approach, which involves setting traps for hackers. The method, called DEEP-Dig (DEcEPtion DIGging), ushers intruders into a decoy site so the computer can learn from hackers’ tactics. The information is then used to train the computer to recognise and stop future attacks.(Pixabay) I
  4. Microsoft said it got a court order to seize 50 websites used by a hacker group with ties to North Korea that targeted government employees, universities, human rights organizations and nuclear proliferation groups in the U.S., Japan and South Korea. The group, known as Thallium, uses the network of websites, domains and connected computers to send out “spear phising” emails. Hackers gather as much information on targets as they can to personalize messages and make them appear legitimate. When the target clicks on a link in the email, hackers are then able
  5. Unauthorised users able to perform 'arbitrary code execution' A critical vulnerability found in Citrix Application Delivery Controller and Citrix Gateway (formerly known as Netscaler ADC and Netscaler Gateway) means businesses with apps published using these technologies may be exposing their internal network to unauthorised access. Citrix (NetScaler) ADC is a load balancer and monitoring tech, while Unified Gateway provides remote access to internal applications. This can include desktop applications as well as intranet or web applications. "Any applicatio
  6. Attackers gained access to some AdGuard accounts but company can't tell how many. AdGuard, a popular ad blocker for Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac, has reset all user passwords, the company's CTO Andrey Meshkov announced today. The company took this decision after suffering a brute-force attack during which an unknown attacker tried to log into user accounts by guessing their passwords. Meshkov said the attacker used emails and passwords that were previously leaked into the public domain after breaches at other companies. This type of attack
  7. Microsoft said today that hackers compromised a font package installed by a PDF editor app and used it to deploy a cryptocurrency miner on users' computers. The OS maker discovered the incident after its staff received alerts via the Windows Defender ATP, the commercial version of the Windows Defender antivirus. Microsoft employees say they investigated the alerts and determined that hackers breached the cloud server infrastructure of a software company providing font packages as MSI files. These MSI files were offered to other software companies. One of the
  8. If you want to secure the data on your computer, one of the most important steps you can take is encrypting its hard drive. That way, if your laptop gets lost or stolen—or someone can get to it when you're not around—everything remains protected and inaccessible. But researchers at the security firm F-Secure have uncovered an attack that uses a decade-old technique, which defenders thought they had stymied, to expose those encryption keys, allowing a hacker to decrypt your data. Worst of all, it works on almost any computer. To get the keys, the attack uses a well-known approach ca
