Nowhere to hide: The reign of cyber criminals is coming to an end  18 June 2014 
Source: InfoWorld - Posted by Alex   
During the 1920s and 1930s, a part of the U.S. public rooted for gun-toting, mythologized bank robbers like Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger, and Pretty Boy Floyd. But the fantasies were often tempered by reports of guards, police, and innocent bystanders injured and killed in the frequent shoot-outs.
 
U.S. Marshals Auctioning Off Seized Silk Road Bitcoins  13 June 2014

If any further evidence was required that up is down and black is white, the United States government is now in the business of selling Bitcoins. At least for one day.
 
After Heartbleed, We’re Overreacting to Bugs That Aren’t a Big Deal  10 June 2014 
Source: Wired - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Here’s something else to blame on last April’s Heartbleed security bug: It smeared the line between security holes that users can do something about, and those we can’t. Getting that distinction right is going to be crucial as we weather a storm of vulnerabilities and hacks that shows no sign of abating.
 
New OpenSSL breach is no Heartbleed, but needs to be taken seriously  06 June 2014 
Source: ZDNet Blogs - Posted by Dave Wreski   
It's been a bad week for open-source Secure Socket Layer (SSL) programs. First, the obscure, GnuTLS was revealed to have a trivial but damning flaw. Then, the massively popular OpenSSL was found to have a man-in-the-middle vulnerability. After the Heartbleed fiasco, OpenSSL needed this like a hole in the head.
 
LulzSec hacker 'Sabu' released after 'extraordinary' FBI cooperation  28 May 2014 
Source: The Guardian UK - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Hector Xavier Monsegur, who by the US government’s calculations participated in computer hacker attacks on more than 250 public and private entities at a cost of up to $50m in damages, was released from a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday after the judge saluted his “extraordinary cooperation” with the FBI.
 
Disclosing vs Hoarding Vulnerabilities  22 May 2014 
Source: Schneier on Security - Posted by Alex   
There's a debate going on about whether the U.S. government -- specifically, the NSA and United States Cyber Comman -- should stockpile Internet vulnerabilities or disclose and fix them. It's a complicated problem, and one that starkly illustrates the difficulty of separating attack and defense in cyberspace.
 
100 arrested in global hacker takedown  21 May 2014 
Source: Daily Sabah - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Police across Europe and North America have arrested nearly 100 people over a global scam that allowed hackers to infect 500,000 computers, steal data and demand ransom money. An online business known as Blackshades sold thousands of cybercriminals the malware called RAT (Remote Access Tools) for as little as $40, US officials said Monday.
 
Security-vendor snake oil: 7 promises that don't deliver  12 May 2014 
Source: Network World - Posted by Alex   
Consider me a career-long computer security curmudgeon. When a vendor guarantees its latest and greatest will defend the world against all computer maliciousness, I yawn. Been there; it didn't pan out.
 
KernelCare Promises Linux Security Updates Without the Reboots  06 May 2014 
Source: The Var Guy - Posted by Dave Wreski   
One of the nice things about Linux is that it never asks to reboot after installing security other updates—unless, that is, you update the kernel, which traditionally does require a reboot. But CloudLinux hopes to change that for more enterprises through a new product called KernelCare, designed to keep a virtual or physical open source Linux OS updated without rebooting.

Source: CNN Money - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Canadian mounties have arrested a teenager who, they say, used the Heartbleed Internet bug to hack into the country's tax agency.
