Top 5 Infosec links of the week (LXIV)

It's a long time we ride in this new technologies' revolution and it shows no signs of stopping. By contrast, areas such computer security are accelerating more and more. That gives more value to manuals, guides and anything that might help us keep alive, surfing in those more and more high waves, so different from what used to be our life, politics and economy in the past.

Luckily, we have good advisors between us and our readers know how to detect them. This explains why most read articles this week (and many others) in this yours information service are texts that give answers, as for the new Center for Industrial Cybersecurity document "Best Practices for Diagnosis of Cyber ​​Security in Industrial Environments 2014". Despite it costs 250 euros, has focused a lot of our visitors' attention.

Another lighthouse in the storm this week has been the report "The cost of cybercrime 2014" from Ponemon Institute. Also, another lighthouse: "Trends Safety (IMHO)" which explains what areas, degrees, programming languages ​​and operating systems are hot trends for computer security professionals. This text includes a list of countries to work, demonstrating the high level of emigration for this profession in Spain. 

Finally, two news have greatly call our audience's attention: first, the discovery of 250,000 Telefónica de España routers using the same SSH key, something dangerous except if Telefonica is remotely managing your device. And, second, a very dangerous malicious code, Equation, able to hide in hard drives operating system, precursor of other stunning APTs as Stuxnet and TheFlame.

And that's all for this week. Have a good Sunday and start next week with good energies.
