Looking for keeping VPNs in a short leash step by step

Inside the global debate about encryption and governments intrusion, it have left a hole about how it can allow the anonymity offered in the private virtual networks. Now, a study gives light to the matter. Today we'll talk about the announcement of new holes on OpenSSL, another study about ATM attacks and a very interesting last year cybersecurity sum, made by the famous company Mandiant.

Worldwide governments look thought their fingers the increasingly VPN services popularization and they start to legislate it. There are also companies which don't allow the access to their video services to VPN users, like Netflix or BBC iPlayer. We just knew an international study about how to regulate this topic in different countries, with examples like the Persian Gulf or China states, which block these traffic, until the extreme of Sirya, whose government created a fake VPN app with trojans included.


Said this, we go straight to the new of the day: OpenSSL announce the launch of the new 1.02g and 1.0.1s versions for March 1st. They ensure "they will solve different high severity security failures"

How steal an ATM

We talk now about another study of the ATM Industry Association about the different ways of stealing an ATM on 2015. The skimmers are the undisputed kings in this field, despite of having descended on sophistication and, according to some researchers, their use by the criminals would be descending little by little. This crime is more usual in USA than in Europe, by the predominant use of magnetic band cards in America.

2015 sum

The last information we recommend this week is the traditional Mandiat annual sum, referred to the main cybersecurity incidents of 2015 and the 2016 perspectives. We read in Reddit it is the best (or one of the best) sums about this matter, so we invite our readers to check it.

We wish our readers a good weekend and don't forget visit us on Sunday to read our interview to the Police inspector and Technological Investigation Unity Technique Section chief, Silvia Barrera.
