More, or less locks

If all of us together asked something to someone, he will mental block. Is the start of service denegation attacks (DDoS), and about locks we talk today. About how people can mental block, or blocks, that were not where they should, and created a huge security hole that makes your hair stand on ends. In between the missing and the spare blocks, cybercriminals have enough to make their own party. Let’s start.

Is it possible to carry out a DDoS attack on self-sufficient car? Yes, it is possible, as the security expert Jonathan Petit has recently prove. You just need to make it believe that there are obstacles where there aren’t, and that some of those obstacles are moving. For the self-sufficient car the information is clear: too much risk of collision, so the best thing is to stay still. To achieve the misunderstanding there is no need of computer complex algorithms: you just need a laser pointer and a low power laser, and creates illusions from 20 to 350 metres away. Your car has been DoSed.

The Spanish investigator Chema Alonso, felt blocked, and has related, full of details, how by BlackSEO, his YouTube channel was closed. Someone should not like how Chema Alonso revealed the cheats that hacks for Facebook use, and started a campaign that ended up with his videos out of the net for continuous report from different identities.”Yes, this easily, any BlackSEO enterprise to manage The Reputation can take off videos from YouTube”,is how he concludes his post.

The ones who do not escape from their personal block are the Ashley Madison users, the site for married adult dates, from which they have stolen 20 GB of data few weeks ago. Some Symantec experts have detected a huge increase in fraudulent e-mails, aiming the Ashley Madison users, with heading as “appealing” as “Ashley Madison´s hack update” or “Ashley Madison´s hack should worry you”. The question that people from Symantec ask themselves is if these messages do work, and if they do: at least 15.814 bitcoins have been detected, moved in suspicious transactions.

At the start we said “missing blocks”. Most concrete, we refer to illegitimate access blocks, as the one Mozilla just announced. It seems that a `hacker´ would have been accessing during a year to sensible information concerning Firefox security, what would have allow him to know and explode at least 185 private bugs, from which 53 are considered to be severe vulnerabilities. An attack to one of the most famous serves due to their security and their user protection policies.

Close the doors you are to close, and do not engage with nothing that might cause a block. If you block more, or block them less, is more likely that you have a non comfortable visit in your digital world (the real world).
