Being enthusiastic shoppers just like many other people around the world, at Kaspersky Lab we are, however paranoid enough to look at any Internet of Things (IoT)-device with some concern, even when the price is favorable.
So we randomly took several different connected devices and reviewed their security set up.
Move along. Nothing to see here.

It sounds like the workloads that the CIO had IT move to public cloud are not performing well.

The data, by the way, was left on-premises, so all database calls are being made across the open internet.Can you guess whatrsquo;s wrong here?[ Learn all about the cloud at InfoWorld.
Start with the basics: What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now.

Then learn what is IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and what is PaaS (platform as a service). ]
In this case, the client admitted that the separation of the application and the database by 3,000 miles was a key mistake, and it was willing to redo the implementation. Obviously, that meant more costs, risk, and time. However, the client got a workable workload in the end.

And a valuable lesson learned.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
In one of our previous articles, we analyzed the NeutrinoPOS banker as an example of a constantly evolving malware family.

A week after publication, this Neutrino modification delivered up a new malicious program classified by Kaspersky Lab as Trojan-Banker.Win32.Jimmy.

In this research we'll be revisiting the USB port – this time in attempts to intercept user authentication data on the system that a microcomputer is connected to.

As we discovered, this type of attack successfully allows an intruder to retrieve user authentication data – even when the targeted system is locked.
As part of this report, we analyze the collected data in our quest for the answer to the question of what interests the current generation of children online.
“Competition platformsrdquo; offer interesting ways to pull together communities to focus on solving a problem.

There are several out there.

For example, Kaggle provides access to development tools and thenbsp;computenbsp;cycles to run algorithms.

They also have some well-written tutorials and training that I highly encourage you to try. (My wife got lost in the analysis of survival rates for passengers of the Titanic – annbsp;excellent introduction to machine learningnbsp;to do at your own pace.) There is currently a Kaggle competition to develop an algorithm that will help health care workers in rural parts of the world prevent cervical cancer by applying the right treatment in high-risk pre-cancerous situations.

Biometrics like fingerprint readers, iris scanners, and facial recognition are either the solution to passwords’ unmanageability or a fool’s-gold technology that will compromise us all.

Both and neither are true.The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 introduces facial recognition to unlock the smartphone, becoming the fourth unlock option for Samsung’s flagship device, in addition to fingerprint reading, iris scanning, and good ol’ manually entered passwords.

And mere days after its introduction, someone has already fooled the Galaxy S8’s facial recognition by showing the device a picture of the person.

That would be an easy way to unlock someone else’s phone without their permission. (An earlier Google facial-recognition technology in 2011’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich had the same flaw, by the way.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
