    Vulnerabilities

    The larger and more complex information systems are, the greater the possibility of error in logic and loopholes in algorithm.

    These are weak points that could enable hackers to breach a system and compromise the integrity of information stored. Programmers themselves who are not yet adept in writing software code can unknowingly misuse the code and lead to a vulnerability.

    A classic example of vulnerabilities that can be exploited is a weak password or its repeated use on various services or software. There are also websites containing malware that installs automatically once visited. Even legitimate software could be a venue for an exploit due to unknown errors (bugs) generated by the program. The end-user or the human element in information systems is arguably the weakest point that hackers easily utilize.

    0-day exploits

    0-hour or 0-day attack is the exploitation by outside parties of a security hole in a computer program which is unknown from its developers. The term comes from the premise that the attack unfolds on the “day 0, meaning no awareness as of yet from the developers so there is no opportunity and time to issue a fix for the threat. Zero-day exploits are usually shared among hackers even before the developer knew.

    Programmers could use the vulnerabilities via several avenues: on web browsers and email. Web browsers allow for a wider target. Meanwhile, using email, hackers can sen...

    A new study of malware takes an unusual approach – instead of analyzing known malware, it analyzes the unknown malware that traditional defenses miss; and finds that 90% is delivered from the web rather than via emails.

  • Seven steps to avoid being 'phished'

    An international hacker was recently found to have more than 10,000 stolen debit and credit card numbers. So, clearly, phishing – the practice of tricking someone into giving bank or credit card information – is rife and plenty of people are falling for it.

    Many businesses issue staff with credit cards to pay for work expenses. But don’t assume everyone who works in your small business is too smart to be taken in by the corrupt come-on of some creep who slips past your email filters. Phishing messages can be slyly convincing.

    The website that a phisher’s email links to will have an address (URL) that is similar to but not the same as a real bank's or financial institution’s site. For instance, if the real site is at 'www.yourbank.com.au', the scammer may use an address like 'www.yourbank.com.au.log107.biz'. The fake site may be stamped with logos indistinguishable from those on the real site.

    Here are seven tips to help counter the slippery threat of phishing with protection, detection and correction.

    1. Use anti-phishing staff training programs

    One way to prevent the potential financial harm that can be inflicted by phishing attacks is to train your staff to understand phishers’ manipulative ‘head hacking’ antics. Software training programs include PhishGuru and PhishMe, which is a phishing simulator that boosts awareness of the sophisticated tactics used by hackers looking to compromise your firm’s data and systems.

    1. Take a cross-platform stance

    Reputation is the key word. In fact, online digital reputation has never been more important. While a few years ago much of our personal information was still considered private, today cyber security expose more information about our lives than ever before. While many people don’t think much about having a “digital reputation,” especially in purchasing products online, information about almost all adult worldwide can be found online.

    Based from the survey conducted by ORC International, results have shown more than 89% of consumers research articles online before making a buying decision, while, 87% of them agree that a favorable review has confirmed their decision to purchase.

    And while our real life reputation is largely defined by us through our interactions with others, our online digital reputation defines how people perceive us – without ever having a single conversation. The fact is, a digital reputation can be incorrect, it may present only partial information and it might even allow for slander and online attacks to define us for others. Translating your brand’s personality onto the web can be tricky, so here is our list of five simple steps that can help you get started.

    1: Match your offline and online personas: When you’re creating a Facebook page or a Twitter account, it should match your brand’s personality in the real world. Choose a design language (...

    Internet users may want to keep an eye on their cookie jar, because a new discovery has linked cookies with hacked social media accounts. Internet researcher Rishi Narang discovered a flaw in the way cookies are used by Twitter, LinkedIn, Microsoft Outlook/Live, and Yahoo. According to Australia’s SC Magazine, Narang found that cookies can be “stolen and used” in a “session fixation” attack. A session fixation is a method of hacking that tricks a victim into using a session identifier chosen by the attacker. If successful, it represents the simplest method with which a valid session identifier can be obtained. One student at SHSU however didn’t find the exploit a big deal. “If I got hacked like that, I wouldn’t really care,” senior student Christopher Valva said. “It’s just a Twitter account. It’s not my entire life.”

    If an attacker can intercept cookies while the user is logged in, the attacker could effectively convince the website that their browser is the original user’s browser, gaining “unfettered access” to your account. Not even a password change could keep the attacker out. It goes without saying that this form of hacking only works if the user is logged in, because the cookie is deleted when the user logs out. LinkedIn is an exception however, because sometimes it retains a user’s cookie for three months. Rishi Narang...
