A team of Internet of Things security researchers has discovered vulnerabilities in the way IoT device vendors manage access across multiple clouds and users, putting both individuals and vendors at risk.
IT Home reports that Netac has the modules in its research and development department, and is currently overclocking them to hit an impossibly fast speed: 10,000MHz.
Cyber attackers are very skilled at infiltration. They’d find ways into a house through cracks and holes that the homeowner doesn’t know about. Analogically speaking, that’s what the new cyber attack group dubbed “Hafnium” did when they identified several zero-day Microsoft Exchange vulnerabilities to get into target networks.
Terraform is a tool that helps you manage various cloud infrastructure services in the form of code. You codify your infrastructure, and so it’s also known as Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
People talk about the cybersecurity job market like it’s a monolith, but there are a number of different roles within cybersecurity, depending not only on your skill level and experience but on what you like to do.
