Top 5 Infosec links of the week (XXX)

"What they have in common hackers and imitators, major technological blackmail, terror to digital attacks, information leaks and the first virus for mobile". The five top post this week, directly in the Sunday compilation.
We started with a question: What they have in common hackers and imitators? We rode their similarities in an article CIGTR. Namely, the two have the same objective: to impersonate those who are not.

Large companies are clear targets for cybercriminals. We discovered these days Nokia had been blackmailed 6 years ago by a group of hackers who seized the source code of the operating system company, Symbian. Worst of all, in this case, the company relented and despite the efforts of the police were unable to catch the thieves.

Blackmail as has recently hit Domino's Pizza, with the flight of 650,000 records of their users. And of that apparently, by far, the company has no intention of paying.

Is there anything to cause more terror than losing all your digital identity overnight? Few things, no doubt. Terrors that haunt us in the third environment, you might pull the main goal of a company for hours (with the associated economic loss) that could allow anyone to know what we do at home and make us fall day after day in fraud the most colorful.

At least, we are certain that security experts are continuously with eyes on all new attack strategies. These days are fulfilled the tenth anniversary of the first discovery of a mobile malware devices, and Kaspersky Lab told us how was the decision to call it "Cabir".


Top five topics of the week. News Five drinking from the same source. The power of information.
