Anti-spam group Spamhaus says almost 5,000 sites on Yahoo use the words bank, eBay and PayPal in their domain names.

Spamhaus has accused Yahoo of failing in the fight against online fraud, and Microsoft has admitted there is room for improvement. Yahoo is playing host to thousands of phishing sites and doesn't have sufficiently well-trained staff to address the problem of online fraud, according to a leading anti-spam and security organization on Tuesday. Richard Cox, chief information officer of Spamhaus, told an audience of politicians, security experts and law enforcement officials that Yahoo has just under 5,000 domains hosted and registered with the words 'bank', 'eBay' and 'PayPal' within the domain names.

At Friday's news conference, President Obama was asked by Chuck Todd whether the debate that has arisen in the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations made Snowden a patriot. Obama disagreed.

"I don't think Mr. Snowden was a patriot," the president said. "I called for a thorough review of our operations before Mr. Snowden made these leaks. My preference, and I think the American peoples' preferences would have been for a lawful, orderly examination of these laws." Yet the Obama administration showed little interest in subjecting the NSA to meaningful oversight and public debate prior to Snowden's actions. When Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked for a "ballpark figure" of the number of Americans whose information was being collected by the NSA last year, the agency refused to give the senator any information, arguing that doing so would violate the privacy of those whose information was collected.

Cheap and widely used interception gear means open WiFi traffic is public.

A federal judge in Illinois has ruled that intercepting traffic on unencrypted WiFi networks is not wiretapping. The decision runs counter to a 2011 decision that suggested Google may have violated the law when its Street View cars intercepted fragments of traffic from open WiFi networks around the country. The ruling is a preliminary step in a larger patent trolling case. A company called Innovatio IP Ventures has accused various "hotels, coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets," and other businesses that offer WiFi service to the public of infringing 17 of its patents. Innovatio wanted to use packet sniffing gear to gather WiFi traffic for use as evidence in the case. It planned to immediately delete the contents of the packets, only keeping the headers. Still, the firm was concerned that doing so might violate federal privacy laws, so it sought a preliminary ruling on the question.

A few months ago, the Federal Communications Commission fined Google $25,000 for taking its sweet time to give information to the FCC about an interesting project Google had been working on.

Most of you are probably familiar with Google Maps, where you can search for directions to wherever you need to go and even get a street view of the area. Google literally paid for trucks to go around with cameras on them in order to record this information. Not a big deal, right? Well it wouldn't be a big deal if those trucks didn't include technology on them that could swipe all of your personal information off unsecured Wi-Fi connections. Just in case you don't know what that means, if you have Wi-Fi in your house and it didn't have a password on it to protect it, odds are that Google has all of your personal information.

The U.S. government may not print Bitcoin, or regulate it, but apparently the feds can still seize it.

Earlier this week, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency reported that it had seized 11.02 bitcoins-roughly $814-from a South Carolina man attempting to buy illegal substances with the world's leading digital currency. It's the first known seizure of Bitcoin by the U.S. government, signaling just how seriously the feds take Bitcoin and the online black markets it fuels. A report from the DEA notes that the money was netted in April. Little detail is provided about the seizure, which appears on the third-to-the-last page of a 128-page document. Its not even clear what substance the suspect was trying to buy. But for Bitcoin experts, the particulars of this case are less important than the apparent fact that the U.S. government is performing sting operations on Bitcoin sites.

I've been experimenting with the Chromium OS over the weekend. If you're not familiar, Chromium is the open source development version of Google's Chrome operating system, which ships on these new-fangled Chromebooks.

After several abortive attempts, I finally got Chromium Lime running on my Dell Mini 1018, and just about everything works fine. It's super fast, and for the first time I can use the pansy little netbook without feeling constrained by its low-power hardware. The most noteworthy point is that I barely even notice I'm running a different operating system. I use the Chrome browser on my primary Windows machine, and 99% of my computing time is spent on the web anyway - for both work and leisure.

An SMS-sending Trojan, which targets mobile devices with Java midlet installed, has been circulating in Malaysia.

Some victims reported that they have been receiving an SMS message which appears to be an update from Samsung. But upon clicking the link, they are redirected to another link (http://mmgbu[...].com:90/[...].jar) that leads to a JAR file. This JAR file carries out the details for the malware to send SMS messages to multiple short numbers.

Since the public release of Microsoft's MS12-020 bulletin, there have been plenty of attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

Last week, we received a related sample, which turned out to be a tool called "RDPKill by: Mark DePalma" that was designed to kill targeted RDP service. The tool was written with Visual Basic 6.0, and has a simple user interface. We tested it on machines running on Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit.

We've been seeing cases of malware that first debuted on other operating systems being ported over to Android. Here's another trojan that fits the bill.

Opfake was first found on Symbian and Windows Mobile. In its latest incarnation on Android, the trojan (still) appears to be an Opera Mini app...whose only permission request is to send SMS messages...
