Bleichenbacher, the name that always chills cryptographers' blood If you're an F5 BIG-IP sysadmin, get patching: there's a bug in the company's RSA implementation that can give an attacker access to encrypted messages.…
Morgan Marquis-Boire resigned from Citizen Lab back in September 2017.
In 2017, the main global threat to users was ransomware: and in order to recover files and data encrypted by attackers, victims were required to pay a ransom in cryptocurrency.
In the first eight months of 2017, Kaspersky Lab products protected 1.65 million users from malicious cryptocurrency miners, and by the end of the year we expect this number to exceed two million.
Looking back at a year like 2017 brings the internal conflict of being a security researcher into full view: on the one hand, each new event is an exciting new research avenue for us, as what were once theoretical problems find palpable expression in reality. On the other hand, as people with a heightened concern for the security posture of users at large, each event is a bigger catastrophe.
Android never relied on WPA2 for security, so breaking it shouldn't matter much.
According to KSN data, Kaspersky Lab solutions detected and repelled 277,646,376 malicious attacks from online resources located in 185 countries all over the world.

IT threat evolution Q3 2017

Our growing dependence on technology, connectivity and data means that businesses present a bigger attack surface than ever. Targeted attackers have become more adept at exploiting their victimsrsquo; vulnerabilities to penetrate corporate defences while ‘flying under the radarrsquo;.
The Edward Snowden named-checked service offers end-to-end encrypted service for business customers, and looks at IoT security too.
The FBI cannot access a cellphone belonging to the dead suspect in Sunday’s Texas shooting, a situation that could reignite the government’s debate over encryption.
This kind of security that should keep the likes of the NSA and pirates out, but doesn't Several large gaps have been found in the IEEE's P1735 cryptography standard that can be exploited to unlock or tamper with encrypted system-on-chip blueprints.…
The P1735 IEEE standard describes methods for encrypting electronic-design intellectual property(IP),as well as the management of access rights for such IP.

The methods are flawed and,in the most egregious cases,enable attack vectors that allow recovery of the entire underlying plaintext IP.
Implementations of IEEE P1735 may be weak to cryptographic attacks that allow an attacker to obtain plaintext intellectual property without the key,among other impacts.
Microsoft explains how its next-gen security can protect files from being encrypted by ransomware extortionists.
