CIGTR wishes you a Merry Christmas

CIGTR wishes you a Merry Christmas

Today is Christmas Eve. For some, a endearing date. For others, an evening dedicated to melancholy. In any case, tonight officially begin the holiday season, a time where we look back and we take stock of the year which it is about to finish.

That's exactly what Edward Snowden has done. The individual who leaked documents that proved the questionable practices carried out by the U.S. National Security Agency, said in an interview published in the Washington Post, that for him, "in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission is already accomplished." In his particular Christmas gift he affirmed that he is not trying to bring down the NSA, but he works for improving it. “I am still working for the NSA right now. They are the only ones who don’t realize it,” says former analyst.

Last Friday, by the way, Reuters reported an agreement of $ 10 million between the NSA and encryption solutions firm RSA, aimed at creating a "backdoor" in their security tool called Bsafe. Given this situation, prestigious security expert Mikko Hypponen congratulated Christmas to RSA,  with a public refusal to attend its RSA Conference USA 2014 as a speaker.

Meanwhile, the Target’s 40 million customers affected by the security breach announced last week will live tonight with the uncertainty of how the data stolen from their cards will be used . At least they already know how the incident occurred. It was originated by a Malware infection in the point-of-sale system.

Cybercrime does not close for holidays, but we all at the CIGTR wish you a nice evening. Merry Christmas!
