One in three corporative computers have been attacked in 2015

The 58% of the corporate computers have been attacked in 2015, because in the 41% of the cases the malware avoid the antivirus. This is only one of the frightening numbers showed by the annual study of Kaspersky Lab about corporate security. We'll talk about it and about the infection of a text from "The Guardian", about thousands of immobilizer of  insecure cars and about the little interest of Dutch Phone House in the security of their clients.

The corporate computers are thrice more susceptible of attacks than the domestic computers according to the annual report of Kaspersky.  One in three corporate computers has suffered a web attack in 2015, in a world where the browsers and the web are now the main entrance of malware and where the ransomware increase quickly. Worth the read.

The height of nerve

What increase too is the nerve of the attackers who, in the height of nervehave infected an article in "The Guardian" called: "Is the crime out of control?". The infection was made by the exploit kit of the year: Angler, which use the last holes in Flash, Java and the browsers to get in the computers of the outdated visitors and it "give them" a ransomware. Very frightening!


Knowing these cases, we almost don't surprised by the last discovery of a new Zealand researcher: hundreds of thousand devices of vehicle immobilizer are vulnerable to multiple remote attacks, from the monitoring of the vehicle until can interrupt the flow of gasoline to the motor.

Phone House

And if you aren't shaking with this story, we try with another one: "The salesman started to renovate my subscription and e needed enter in the Vodafone portal. He didn't remember the password, so he opened in front of me an Excel where were "all" the passwords to modified clients data of KPN, Vodafone, Telfort, T-Mobile, UPC, Tele-2... The excel was in Google Docs and all the credentials of his Google account were before me".

We hope that you have a good weekend after the reading of this text, until the Sunday when we'll publish our weekly interview, this time to Pablo F. Iglesias, a "rara avis" in the world of cybersecurity.
