Ransomware is on the Rise: Is Your Business Protected? By Israel Levy, CEO of BUFFERZONE Businesses that have thus far avoided extortion by ransomware shouldn't assume that the bad guys are turning their attention to other pursuits, or that law enforcement agencies have shut them down -- because ransomware isn't just getting more rampant; it's getting more potent and devious, too. With respect to ransomware's shift from widespread threat to all-out epidemic, in just the first 90 days of 2015, McAfee Labs has identified a 165% surge in new ransomware versions and strains - including several from the CTB-Locker ransomware family, which is a variant of the notoriously difficult to detect CryptoLocker, the most infamous example of ransomware. ...Read More »
Content Insider #397 - Mobile Payments By Miles Weston Right after WWDC (Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference) everyone got reinterested in the idea of moving from a billfold full of plastic and putting all your payment info on your smartphone. Apple "adjusted" the name and a few other folks changed their names as well. It's gonna happen because banks/card folks are tired of punching out and shipping new cards every time you lose yours.

Hack of Security Clearance Data a National Threat By Mark G Graff Two different cyber breaches of the federal Office of Personnel Management were made public last week. The first one - involving, at a minimum, the Social Security numbers of over 4 million past and present federal workers - got the most attention. The second breach will have far more serious long-term implications for U.S. national security: it means the Chinese government may have access to the personal secrets of the very people we rely on to hold China's military ambitions in check. Late last Friday, new reports surfaced about the additional, earlier loss at OPM. According to unnamed Federal officials speaking to the Washington Post and ABC News, Chinese attackers also stole copies of the highly confidential information supplied by anyone who has applied for a U.S. security clearance in the past several years. The national security implications of the second disclosure are staggering, and far-reaching. ...Read More »
