Let's run through a little thought experiment. Imagine there's a list somewhere that contains every single webpage you have visited in the last five years.

It also has everything you have ever searched for, every address you looked up on Google Maps, every email you sent, every chat message, every YouTube video you watched. Each entry is time-stamped, so it's clear exactly, down to the minute, when all of this was done. Now imagine that list is all searchable. And imagine it's on a clean, easy-to-use website. With all that imagined, can you think of a way a hacker, with access to this, could use it against you? And once you've imagined all that, go over to, and see it all become reality.

Sony said Wednesday intruders staged a massive attempt to access user accounts on its PlayStation Network and other online entertainment services in the second major attack on its flagship gaming site this year.

The Tokyo-based company temporarily locked about 93,000 accounts whose IDs and passwords were successfully ascertained by the blitz. Sony sent email notifications and password reset procedures to affected customers on the PlayStation Network, Sony Entertainment Network and Sony Online Entertainment services. Credit card numbers linked to the compromised accounts are not at risk, Sony said. It has "taken steps to mitigate the activity" and is investigating any wrongful use of the accounts themselves.

At this point it's unclear of the severity, as has not released anything public, but I would say the odds are not in their favor.

The Hacker News (THN) put out an article this morning titled: 15000 WordPress Blogs Hacked For making Money From Survey. Naturally my first reaction was, meh, it's likely a fluke of some kind, but as I read it I became more suspicious. It all started with this email...

'Security first' gets more NB for little guys

The recent Synology Synolocker issue should serve as a splash of cold water to any vendors in the tech industry that design and sell systems that are largely unattended or unmanaged. As described in The Reg yesterday, Synology NAS boxes are being hit by a Cryptolocker-like piece of malware dubbed Synolocker. Like Cryptolocker, the "ransomware" encrypts all your files and then demands a ransom to unlock them. How did it happen and what should be done?

FISA Amendments Act and warrant-less spying are moving through the House and Senate, and would allow NSA to continue spying on the American citizen.

Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to renew the dangerous FISA Amendment Act-which hands the NSA broad, warrantless surveillance powers over Americans' international communications-for another five years. Sadly, the House refused to add any new oversight powers or privacy protections, despite ample evidence the NSA has used it to unconstitutionally spy on Americans. In fact, Rep. Lamar Smith, the bill's co-sponsor, would not even allow any amendments to come up for a vote.

Just when you start thinking we've seen out the last of the major security breaches for 2011, Christmas day brings us one final whopper for the year: Stratfor.

Much has already been said about why they might have been hacked and who might (or might not) have done it, but the fact remains that there are now tens of thousands of customer passwords and credit card details floating around the web. Oh, and apparently about 5 million internal emails ready to be released. So what do we take from this as website builders? The benefit of hindsight gives us a good opportunity for reflection as we watch the fallout unfold from the last major breach of the year. Let me share the 5 lessons I'm taking away from this.

It's called Operation Kill Switch, and it was actually constructed under President George W. Bush, but President Barack Hussein Obama's administration is being called to the mat to explain it.

Probably because Hussein Obama has an itchy Kill Switch finger, and is ready to push the button. Basically, Operation Kill Switch mandated that the U.S. Government make ready a plan that will cut off all internet and cell phone communications in one fell swoop. And the U.S. Government has created just such an ability. In November, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must make its plan to shut off the internet and cellphone communications available to the American public. The government has until December 12 to do so, or the Department of Homeland Security can file for an extension of the date to reveal just how Kill Switch works. Knowing the U.S. Government and how much they really care about the people they are supposed to represent (yes, that was a joke) expect an extension.

A team of UT researchers took control of the GPS navigation system of a yacht in the Mediterranean Sea in June without detection, causing it to veer off-course, in the process of developing anti-spoofing technology.

A group of graduate students under the guidance of aerospace engineering professor Todd Humphreys conducted this experiment to demonstrate the danger to vessels caused by "spoofing," an electronic attack on a GPS system that tricks it into receiving a attacking signal. According to the researchers, spoofing attacks can be used to cause target ships to become lost, drift into territorial waters of an unfriendly state or even run aground in shallow waters. "What's most sinister is that the victim ship can hardly tell it's being spoofed," Humphreys said. "So it's all the dangers you would expect from being led off course without your knowing."

Viruses threaten Microsoft's brand and its bottom line Security-software firms are caught in the crossfire

When the Blaster and SoBig viruses hit the Internet in August, they infected millions of Microsoft-based home and business computers, bogged down corporate networks and caused billions of dollars in direct and indirect damages.

Local exploitation of a buffer overflow vulnerability within the Core Foundation Library included by default in Apple Computer Inc.'s Mac OS X could allow an attacker to gain root privileges.

The vulnerability specifically exists due to improper handling of the CF_CHARSET_PATH environment variable. When a string greater than 1,024 characters is passed via this variable, a stack-based overflow occurs, allowing the attacker to control program flow by overwriting the function's return address on the stack. Any application linked against the Core Foundation Library can be used as an exploit vector for this vulnerability. Some of the setuid root binaries that are vulnerable include su, pppd and login.
