Top 5 Infosec links of the week (XXXIV)

"Attacks on Nasdaq, innate rarity of technology, using a single password, cybersecurity main topic of any conversation and the danger of public health data". The five top post this week, directly in the Sunday compilation.

Some Russian hackers attacked the Nasdaq in 2010, with the intention of bringing down the entire global economy. A handling system trading which would have meant a real destabilization of the whole economic framework that underpins our society. Since then, the system has been strengthened, one of the most interesting targets to cause global chaos.

Technology is rare. With this title, we emphasized CIGTR from the numerous contradictions that we usually find in the third environment. Since antivirus companies like McAfee doing rankings by superheroes representing greater threat to our computers, lenses that measure glucose in the person, and even tech giants like Microsoft making sure to keep the same password for multiple services is something recommended. A this crazy world we live in!

And is that security is on everyone's lips, either in industry circles or in the hair salon. A branch of computer science that has crept into the concerns of all users, either by the numerous failures that day in and day are presented also in the services we use, or even, as you pointed Chema Alonso, with the danger of exposing data publicly our health and physical activity in apps like Endomondo, which defaults let our profiles are indexed by search engines.

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