Simply put, we have been right all along, and we now have the conflicting circuit court precedent to prove it. The Supreme Court needs to consider the Fourth Circuitâ€™s arguments and address this split between circuits.
Do we let Big Tech have access to our private communications and free email accounts because itâ€™s so easy? Once youâ€™ve said yes â€” and who among us has not? â€” itâ€™s not a stretch to think that Big Data already has almost all your information, so why get picky at the next juncture?
Internet infrastructure servicesâ€”the heart of a secure and resilient internet where free speech and expression flowsâ€”should continue to focus their energy on making the web an essential resource for users and, with rare exceptions, avoid content policing.
Targeted advertisingâ€™s days may be numbered. The Wall Street Journal and Reuters report that the European Data Protection Board has ruled that Meta cannot continue targeting ads based on userâ€™s online activity without affirmative, opt-in consent.
A vulnerability in IBM Cloud databases for PostgreSQL could have allowed attackers to launch a supply chain attack on cloud customers by breaching internal IBM Cloud services and disrupting the hosted system’s internal image-building process.
Amazon Web Services has signaled that the future of cloud computing cannot rely alone on general-purpose chips with its new Graviton3E silicon, joining AMD and Intel in introducing specialized central processing units that are meant to perform certain applications faster and more efficiently.
Biometrics is supposed to be one of the underpinnings of a modern authentication system. But many biometric implementations (whether that be fingerprint scanes or face recognition) can be wildly inaccurate, and the only universally positive thing to say about them is they’re better than nothing.
The SMO provides a central interface for application configuration and provisioning. It also automates both infrastructure management processes and the creation of new services through southbound APIs (O2-IMS & O2-DMS).
There is a common misconception that all problems have clear, straightforward solutions â€” as long as you look hard enough. While this is a bold and ambitious goal, it’s misguided when applied to cybersecurity.
How valuable is it to keep older solutions like this running? Well, organizations don’t enjoy running old legacy systems just for the pleasure of it, but they’re often forced to keep them running because it’s their only option, or at least the only cost-effective option available to them.
Securing critical infrastructure is complicated because of the vast network of facilities and management systems. Threats targeting this sector can have dire consequences, and when attacks do happen, they’re often accompanied by a media storm.
Fondly referred to as â€œspinning rustâ€ among some computer nerds, mechanical hard drives seem almost quaint compared to hyper-fast SSDs. Yet, the idea that mechanical hard drives are ready for the trash pile may be more than a little premature.
Nearly every application has at least one vulnerability or misconfiguration that affects security and a quarter of application tests found a highly or critically severe vulnerability, a new study shows.
New York State has banned a practice becoming more common in the crypto-mining industry â€“ the rescuing and repurposing of mothballed fossil fuel plants to exclusively provide energy for mining digital currency.
While in the near future most devices in the car will be connected through zonal switches, cameras are the exception. They will continue to connect to processors over point-to-point protocol (P2PP) links using proprietary networking protocols such as low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS), Maximâ€™s GMSL or TIâ€™s FPD-Link.
Before we start, let’s get one thing perfectly clear: The entire and only reason for writing reports like this one is to avoid repeating the same mistakeâ€”no more, no less. Assigning guilt, placing blame, exposing incompetence, or getting people fired is not CSRB’s job. It investigates; the rest of us act.
If you own an advanced Android phone, you may find that Google Assistant will interrupt conversations to offer its own “insights”. Google is also pursuing “prebunking” of what it considers “misinformation” with preemptive propaganda campaigns.
The outcomes of such a system are incentives to not be the new person on a team, to not ask questions, to not work on new and unfamiliar efforts, and to not work together at all generally. Those behaviors become embedded in an organization’s DNA, despite whatever is advertised publicly.
Today’s business headlines herald a harsh reality for Big Tech: tumult at Twitter; meltdown at Meta; atrophy at Alphabet; adjustments at Amazon. Layoffs, sliding stock and shrinking valuations are hallmarks of the moment.
An offshore company that is trusted by the major web browsers and other tech companies to vouch for the legitimacy of websites has connections to contractors for U.S. intelligence agencies and law enforcement, according to security researchers, documents and interviews.
Silicon Valley startup Eliyan thinks its technology for enabling chiplet-based designs can best those from semiconductor giants Intel and TSMC by providing better performance, higher efficiency, fewer manufacturing issues, and more supply chain options.
While the number of cleartext passwords is an improvement compared with the 96,361 passwords exposed in 2020 and the more than 100,000 sent in the clear in 2019, there is still room for improvement, says Jessica Bair Oppenheimer, director of technical alliances at Cisco Secure.
I suspect this reflects a significant change in the economics of the sector. For the last 20 years, Silicon Valley has had the wind at its back thanks to rapid adoption of new technologies like the internet and smartphones. As a result, the industry fared better than the broader economy during and after the 2008 recession.
On August 4, 2022, Microsoft publicly shared a framework that it has been using to secure its own development practices since 2019, the Secure Supply Chain Consumption Framework (S2C2F), previously the Open Source Software-Supply Chain Security (OSS-SSC) Framework.
This raises an important question: How do you take what is good about these patterns for creating innovation? Specifically, how do you apply open source principles and practices as appropriate? That’s what we’ve sought to accomplish with Red Hat Research.
Thousands of smartphone applications in Apple (AAPL.O) and Google’s (GOOGL.O) online stores contain computer code developed by a technology company, Pushwoosh, that presents itself as based in the United States, but is actually Russian, Reuters has found.
User-first security must begin with an understanding of how people use computing technology. We have to ask: What is it that makes users vulnerable to hacking via email, messaging, social media, browsing, file sharing?
Top chipmakers Nvidia, Intel, ARM, and AMD are providing the hardware hooks for an emerging security concept called confidential computing, which provides layers of trust through hardware and software so customers can be confident that their data is secure.
Rather than ensuring security, the focus across the software development life cycle (SDLC) is beating the competition to market. In fact, innovation is often seen at odds with security â€” the former believed to be fast-paced and productive, and the latter a roadblock that stifles quick-moving application development.
Several models have been proposed to the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) and other ISACs for a role in software assurance for supply chains using the Software Bill of Material (SBOM) information and associated digital signatures.
As has happened with other Web technologies designed for legitimate use, the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) peer-to-peer network for storing and accessing content in a decentralized fashion has become a potent new weapon for cyberattacks.
The recent rise of HTTP request smuggling has seen a flood of critical findings enabling near-complete compromise of numerous major websites. However, the threat has been confined to attacker-accessible systems with a reverse proxy front-end… until now.
Finding new ways to collect information about a network and limit the meta-data exposed to others is a constant struggle we see in research as this data can be used for both benign and malicious intentions.
BlackEnergy first appeared in 2007. Designed to launch distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks or download customized spam or banking data-stealer plug-ins, it was again used to target the State Bar of Georgia last May.
Over the last two years, office workers of the world have gotten a tantalizing taste of either fully remote work or partially remote hybrid work. Many don’t want to go back to commuting to a workplace full-time, no matter the cost.
An issue with this approach is that it assumes the recommended resolvers offer improved protection versus the one currently being used. In reality, the existing resolver may support one or more encrypted DNS protocols and the connection may already be encrypted.
There are many opinions about encryption and its role in our society, and many of those opinions are contradictory. Still, the general public is largely unaware of the nuances of this issue, which can lead to confusion or misunderstanding about what encryption really is and why it is crucial to all internet users.
Most pressingly, there is a general lack of demand for 5G services from enterprises. This means that service providers, eager to place themselves at the head of the race to deliver 5G services, are struggling to sell the potential benefits to their customers.
