How Secure is Your Security Badge?  17 August 2014 
Source: Krebs on Security - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Security conferences are a great place to learn about the latest hacking tricks, tools and exploits, but they also remind us of important stuff that was shown to be hackable in previous years yet never really got fixed. Perhaps the best example of this at last week’s annual DefCon security conference in Las Vegas came from hackers who built on research first released in 2010 to show just how trivial it still is to read, modify and clone most HID cards — the rectangular white plastic “smart” cards that organizations worldwide distribute to employees for security badges.

The internet is littered with burgeoning email encryption schemes aimed at thwarting NSA spying. Many of them are focused on solving the usability issues that have plagued complicated encryption schemes like PGP for years. But a new project called Dark Mail plans to go further: to hide your metadata.

KernelCare: New no-reboot Linux patching system  07 May 2014 
Source: ZDNet Blogs - Posted by Dave Wreski   
On a well-maintained Linux system, months can go by without needing to reboot. Sooner or later, however, a security patch to the Linux kernel will require you to reboot your machine. That's not a real problem on a desktop, but when you're talking hundreds of servers it can be a real pain. That's where CloudLinux's new program KernelCare comes in.
 
Why the media loves to exaggerate Linux security problems  25 March 2014 
Source: IT World - Posted by Dave Wreski   
There have been a lot of media reports about Linux security problems recently. ZDNet has taken a stand and pointed out that the problem isn't with Linux, the problem is with certain Linux users and administrators. I'd also argue that the problem is also with certain media outlets who jump on the "linux security stinks!" bandwagon at the earliest opportunity.
 
UK's security branch says Ubuntu most secure end-user OS  25 February 2014 
Source: Hack in the Box - Posted by Dave Wreski   
I've been preaching the gospel of Linux security for decades now, but it's always nice to see proof-positive from an independent organization that Linux is indeed the most secure operating system around.
 
Time to drop unnecessary admin privileges  20 February 2014 
Source: Network World - Posted by Dave Wreski   
A new study shows that CSOs could dramatically lower the risk of malware infection by becoming a lot stingier with the number of company employees given administrator accounts on computers.
 
Out in the Open: Hacker Vows to Instantly Analyze Your Big Data  10 February 2014 
Source: Wired - Posted by Alex   
These days, Hadoop is everywhere. It began as an esoteric data-crunching platform used by vanguard web companies like Yahoo, Facebook, and Twitter, and now, less than a decade later, it’s a sensation that spans industries. IBM uses Hadoop inside Watson, its Jeopardy-winning supercomputer.
 
Former NSA employee looks to make email more secure  03 February 2014 
Source: Network World - Posted by Alex   
It wasn't designed with security in mind. It was just designed to work. But following disclosures of large-scale spying by the U.S. as well as other nations over the last several years, a variety of companies, including Wickr and Silent Circle, see commercial opportunities in making encrypted messaging products that are easier to use.
 
Should you switch to a supersecure operating system?  08 January 2014 
Source: InfoWorld - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Qubes, a Linux OS, uses Xen to spawn multiple domains and promises to reduce risk with some extra effort. For most of us, the effort would be better spent elsewhere
