Top 5 Infosec links of the week (XXV)

Data protection in the IoT, rationality and intelligent algorithms, benefits of working for ilegal organization, points of sale attacked, and Japanese arrested for possession of weapons created by 3D printers. The five top post this week, directly in the Sunday compilation.

The methods of attack and theft of personal data evolve at an alarming rate in an environment increasingly dominated by the internet of things. Kester and Pattison wrote an article recently about measures to be applied to mitigate the hazards associated with these attacks.

And do not talk only possible leaks of information, but that as technology advances, especially robotics, we headed to an environment dominated by machines, deep sound, and could, as pointed out by Pablo F. Iglesias in his article, take shots mathematically simple decisions in which human lives are at stake.

Why is a security expert would be working for an illegal organization? The answer is easy. For material benefits. The latter, discovered by the European Centre against Cybercrime (EC3), which is conducting a cybercrime chief of a band of this, to give a Ferrari for the more productive hacker to his organization.

With such incentives is not uncommon for every day hundreds of attacks occurring to internet services mainly outlets stores. Systems that handle a flow of money and usually do not have the necessary security measures.

And we end with a story that reopens the talk about possible illegal uses of 3D printing. A Japanese man was arrested with five arms printed with this technology, at least two of them fully operational.

Top five topics of the week. News Five drinking from the same source. The business that are behind the theft.
