There was a recent report of a malicious Android package installation being hosted on a fake "Android Market"-lookalike site, which was pushed to users from an advertisement link.

The distribution strategy itself is not new. We saw variations of this happening with Google advertisements 2 years back, though in that case it was rogue or scareware that was being pushed by the advertisements. What is interesting about the case is: Android application repackaging. We've seen this tactic being used quite frequently in the last few months, as it seems to be the favored "quick" way for malware authors to produce new Android malware.

The next time you see another post on a phishing attack and think "there's no way I'm going to fall for that", you might want to reconsider.

As general users become adept at detecting a phishing attempt, the authors are changing their tactics and are taking the time to learn about the target beforehand. This e-mail for instance, was sent to a person who recently made a purchase from the AppStore on his iPad. The "coincidental" timing is enough to warrant at least an attention from the intended recipient. Combined with tricks such as spoofed address and vague links, the recipient might even fall for the trap.

Last week there was an outbreak on Facebook of video spam related to Osama bin Laden's death.

If a curious user clicked on the link in the spam, it would eventually bring them to a page which basically makes the user manually send out spam to his own FB contacts, under the guise of a 'security check' to view the video...

It looks as if some people used the day after Christmas for mischief rather than relaxation. According to a FreeBeacon report, the website for the US foreign policy group, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), was compromised on December 26th, 2012.

Judging from the exploit HTML file apparently used in the attack, users in specific countries were being targeted. The compromised site itself was reportedly cleaned shortly after the attack was detected. However, we expect the exploit to become more widely used in other online attacks now that it has been added to the Metasploit framework.

Proof-of-concept exploit code has been posted online for six kernel vulnerabilities, five of which affect Mac OS X 10.5.6, the most current version of Apple's operating system software.

The vulnerabilities were discussed at CanSecWest 2009 last week during a talk about security flaws in the FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris kernels by security researchers Christer Oberg and Neil Kettle of Convergent Network Solutions. The five that affect Mac OS X, which uses the Mach kernel and incorporates portions of FreeBSD Unix, remain unpatched.

Taylor's post about our growth in 2011 included a bunch of numbers showing how the pistons inside the 37signals engine are pounding faster, but it all got swept away by what seemed like an innocent side-note: The 100 millionth file was called cat.jpg.

Being as it is that the internet is constantly accused of being just an elaborate way of sharing pictures of cats, sharing pictures of cats, we thought that was funny. But it wasn't. We shouldn't make jokes about anything even remotely related to people's data. Because the natural train of thought from there goes: Hey, if they saw the file name cat.jpg and shared it with the world, what's to prevent them from sharing other data? Actual sensitive data, like Downsizing-Plans-2012.pdf? Hell, what if they're actually looking at my secret new logo and leak it to the press?

Support for a data-storage device that could potentially combat the government's data-collection surveillance program known as PRISM has skyrocketed online. In just two days, the developers have received more than $200,000 in donations via Kickstarter.

Plug is a small USB adapter that can store and transfer all content without the need for the Cloud or third-party services. The device, which has been in development for two years, was created by the brains at Cloud Guys Corporation. With Plug, all storage is private, and files are not uploaded to the Cloud, the group explains. No external company is involved, and nothing is sent to a server. Communication between devices is encrypted for added security, and website developers can use Plug for storage.

by The Agencies On the Topic of the Government'S Surveillance

July 17, 2013

As an aside during testimony on Capitol Hill today, a National Security Agency representative rather casually indicated that the government looks at data from a universe of far, far more people than previously indicated.

Chris Inglis, the agency's deputy director, was one of several government representatives-including from the FBI and the office of the Director of National Intelligence-testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this morning. Most of the testimony largely echoed previous testimony by the agencies on the topic of the government's surveillance, including a retread of the same offered examples for how the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had stopped terror events. But Inglis' statement was new. Analysts look "two or three hops" from terror suspects when evaluating terror activity, Inglis revealed. Previously, the limit of how surveillance was extended had been described as two hops. This meant that if the NSA were following a phone metadata or web trail from a terror suspect, it could also look at the calls from the people that suspect has spoken with-one hop. And then, the calls that second person had also spoken with-two hops. Terror suspect to person two to person three. Two hops. And now: A third hop.

Several users have reported that their ELS (Encrypted Local Store) data created using AIR 3.3 or earlier is no longer available after updating to the AIR 3.4 runtime.

This occurred due to updates in the ELS architecture to improve security and improve stability with the removal of a third party library. The result, however, is that the AIR 3.4 runtime can no longer access ELS data created with AIR 3.3 or earlier. In the past we've given guidance on the usage of ELS in both blogs and our help documentation, suggesting that developers should not depend on ELS as permanent data storage because it "can be lost for a variety of reasons." While our position on this hasn't changed, we understand that some applications have come to depend on this data and we are actively working on a fix for the problem.
