The character assassination of Keith Alexander  30 June 2014 
Source: Errata Security - Posted by Dave Wreski   
According to these stories, a Congressman wants to know if former NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander is selling classified info to banks. There is nothing to this story. It’s gossip based on upon rumor based on speculation based on innuendo. It’s such obvious character assassination that I shouldn’t have to write a blog post debunking it, but apparently you people have gone insane.
“The Internet’s Own Boy”: How the government destroyed Aaron Swartz  25 June 2014 
Source: Salon - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Brian Knappenberger’s Kickstarter-funded documentary “The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz,” which premiered at Sundance barely a year after the legendary hacker, programmer and information activist took his own life in January 2013, feels like the beginning of a conversation about Swartz and his legacy rather than the final word.
6 things security pros keep getting wrong  29 May 2014

I'm a security professional, and it pains me to admit that in my line of work, mistakes are made. Multiple times. In almost every organization. With alarming frequency.
5 ways computer security has truly advanced  27 May 2014 
Source: InfoWorld - Posted by Dave Wreski   
As you may know, I like to rant about the poor state of computer security. I have reason to, because each year it appears we're losing the battle as more and more systems get exploited. We can't seem to take care of the simple stuff, like requiring better passwords or fixing DNS (who among you has enabled DNSSec?), much less the hard work it will take to make substantial improvements in the state of security.
OpenSSL and Linux: A Tale of Two Open-Source Projects  07 May 2014 
Source: NY Times - Posted by Alex   
The Heartbleed bug has cast a bright and not entirely flattering light on the open-source movement’s incentive model. When a crucial and ubiquitous piece of security code like OpenSSL — left vulnerable for two years by the Heartbleed flaw — can be accessed by all the world’s programming muscle, but only has one full-time developer and generates less than $2,000 in donations a year, clearly something is amiss.
Don’t punish Heartbleed hacker … hire him!  05 May 2014 
Source: Hamilton Spectator - Posted by Anthony Pell   
A 19-year-old UWO computer science student, Stephen Solis-Reyes, takes six hours to hack into the Canada Revenue Agency using the Heartbleed bug. The National Security Agency admits to using it for the past two years. Solis-Reyes admits he took no data and damaged nothing.
Safety you can bank on: Chromebook, Linux, phone  21 April 2014 
Source: USA Today - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Q: I'm nervous about keeping my online banking safe on my regular PC. Should I buy a Chromebook and use it just for that? A: Cheap laptops running Google's Chrome OS have a lot going for them as long as you don't need conventional, disk-based apps and rarely lack for bandwidth.
World's Biggest Data Breaches  20 March 2014 
Source: Information Is Beautiful - Posted by Dave Wreski   
This interactive ‘Balloon Race’ code is powered by our forthcoming VizSweet software – a set of high-end dataviz tools for generating interactive visualisations. We’re currently in pre-alpha.
Security: It's knowing what you don't know  10 March 2014 
Source: The Register UK - Posted by Alex   
Some vendors will tell you that security problems are solved by sticking a device on the edge of your network, but we all know that 100 per cent security is a fantasy.
Everything You Wanted To Know About Bitcoin  07 February 2014 
Source: Kaspersky - Posted by Alex   
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that has gained popularity in the latest months due to the fact that the price has been increasing significantly, catching the mainstream public and media attention. Even though the value of a single currency unit has fallen back quite a bit, it is still a tempting option for many users and cybercriminals alike.
