A few days after Oracle released its critical patch for Java, and CVE-2013-2423 is already being exploited. Upon checking the history, the exploitation seems to have begun on April 21st and is still actively happening.

For a closer look, the image below contains a comparison of the classes found in the Metasploit module and that of the ITW sample: Interestingly, the Metasploit module was published on the 20th, and as mentioned earlier, the exploit was seen in the wild the day after.

It seems the Python Software Foundation needs some help with a company in the UK that is trying to trademark the word "Python" for "software, servers, services… pretty much anything having to do with a computer".

By now, you've probably read the news about "Red October" and you're wondering how worried you should be? Red October is the latest AV industry case study of digital espionage.

From a technical point of view Red October looks very much like any other targeted corporate espionage attack. The attackers use exploit documents with credible looking content so the victim will open the file, drop a malicious payload to the infected device, and start mining all information they can from the infected system. It appears the exploits used were not advanced in any way. The attackers used old, well-known Word, Excel and Java exploits. So far, there is no sign of zero-day vulnerabilities being used.

I have lately been following and participating in discussions as to whether or not antivirus products are useless and just waste of money.

And as I am employed by F-Secure, my position on the matter may be rather obvious. But rather than going on with the same tired argument, I would like to shine some attention to some common patterns and misconceptions that repeat themselves in almost all discussions...

Exploit kits are still making rounds, nothing new there. But in addition to the popular Blackhole Exploit Kit, a new kid on the block emerges which has been dubbed as Cool Exploit Kit.

It's very interesting to see how these two actually fare against each other... Lately, we're seeing that Blackhole updated to the latest PluginDetect version 0.7.9, which has already been used by Cool. We've also seen Blackhole exploit the font vulnerability (CVE-2011-3402) that Cool has been exploiting.

Beleaguered Sony BMG will temporarily suspend the manufacture of CDs protected with technology from First 4 Internet and re-examine its copy-protection strategy, the media giant said on Friday.

The company has been widely criticized by consumers, security experts and digital-rights advocates for the surreptitious copy-protection programs that Sony BMG CDs install on consumers' computers. Digital-rights advocates and consumer attorneys are preparing nearly a half dozen legal actions against the music giant. While the company is re-evaluating its inclusion of the Extended Copy Protection (XCP) technology produced by U.K.-based First 4 Internet, the company stood by its right to protect its music.

The idea of that we would need the Government to provide us even the most essential things like infrastructure or postal services and that without Government nothing would get done is a terrible fallacy.

This is really fascinating. I'v never understood subsidies or the growing dependence on government help. If something can't stand on it's own, it means people aren't willing to pay for it. So why should the gov't force the people to pay for it? Someone will come along and do it better or more efficiently. It's always been the case in history. Look at the US Post Service. It's a joke. We spend $5 billion a year subsidizing its losses, yet FedEx and UPS and DHL and all of the other carriers around the globe are raking in BILLIONS in PROFITS. So why do we still allow this to happen? Why don't we demand that the USPS rebuilds itself to be more efficient and economical instead of demanding that the people cover their losses?

The federal government is months behind in testing data security for the main pillar of Obamacare: allowing Americans to buy health insurance on state exchanges due to open by October 1

The missed deadlines have pushed the government's decision on whether information technology security is up to snuff to exactly one day before that crucial date, the Department of Health and Human Services' inspector general said in a report. As a result, experts say, the exchanges might open with security flaws or, possibly but less likely, be delayed. "They've removed their margin for error," said Deven McGraw, director of the health privacy project at the non-profit Center for Democracy & Technology. "There is huge pressure to get (the exchanges) up and running on time, but if there is a security incident they are done. It would be a complete disaster from a PR viewpoint."

The key indicator is a repeat "problem child" who continually argues with fellow employees, complains about salary or benefits, or is otherwise aggressive or hostile.

Brian Robak, a network security analyst at National Cooperative Bank, used to manage the company's help desk workers back when he was the LAN manager. Being a manager is never an easy chore, but there was one employee who generally made his job a nightmare. A full 80% of people who launch a computer-related attack on their own company's system had been problem employees, according to the Secret Service.

The number of names in a secret U.S. database of suspected terrorists has swollen to 875,000 from 540,000 only five years ago, in part because of rule changes introduced after al Qaeda's failed underwear bomb plot in 2009.

The new figures were released Friday by the U.S. National Counter-Terrorism Center, which manages the database, the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, or TIDE. A senior intelligence official explained the changes to The Washington Times. "It's absolutely not unwieldy," the official insisted. He was seeking to rebut charges that the growing size of such a database actually makes harder the work of finding real terrorists - what critics call the "larger haystack, same number of needles" problem.
