Internet-of-Things devices are turning every industry into the computer industry, making customers think that their lives would be much easier with smart devices.
There are, of course, some really good reasons to connect certain devices to the Internet. For example, remotely switching on your A/C a few minutes before you enter your home, instead of leaving it blasting all day.
It’s been over a week since Wikileaks promised to hand over more information on hacking tools and tactics of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to the affected tech companies, following a leak of a roughly 8,761 documents that Wikileaks claimed belonged to CIA hacking units.
“We have decided to work with them, to give them some exclusive access to some of the technical details we have, so
Security researchers have discovered a chip flaw that could nullify hacking protections for millions of devices regardless of their operating system or application running on them, and the worse — the flaw can not be entirely fixed with any mere software update.
The vulnerability resides in the way the memory management unit (MMU), a component of many CPUs, works and leads to bypass the
Again bad news for consumers with Netgear routers: Netgear routers hit by another serious security vulnerability, but this time more than two dozens router models are affected.
Security researchers from Trustwave are warning of a new authentication vulnerability in at least 31 models of Netgear models that potentially affects over one million Netgear customers.
The new vulnerability,
It seems like the FBI has been hacked, once again!
A hacker, using Twitter handle CyberZeist, has claimed to have hacked the FBI’s website (fbi.gov) and leaked personal account information of several FBI agents publically.
CyberZeist had initially exposed the flaw on 22 December, giving the FBI time to patch the vulnerability in its website’s code before making the data public.
No software is immune to being Hacked! Not even Linux.
A security researcher has discovered a critical vulnerability in Ubuntu Linux operating system that would allow an attacker to remotely compromise a target computer using a malicious file.
The vulnerability affects all default Ubuntu Linux installations versions 12.10 (Quantal) and later.
Researcher Donncha O’Cearbhaill discovered the
North Korea’s own homegrown computer operating system, that’s supposed to be fully hacker proof and more secure than foreign OS, like Microsoft’s Windows, can easily be hacked remotely.
A group of hackers managed to break into Red Star OS — North Korea’s government sanctioned Linux-based OS — using just a link.
Red Star OS is North Korea’s own homegrown OS that looks remarkably just like
Hackers are actively exploiting a zero-day vulnerability in Firefox to unmask Tor Browser users, similar to what the FBI exploited during an investigation of a child pornography site.
Tor (The Onion Router) is an anonymity software that not only provides a safe heaven to human rights activists, journalists, government officials, but also is a place where drugs, assassins for hire, child
A proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit for a critical vulnerability in the Network Time Protocol daemon (ntpd) has been publically released that could allow anyone to crash a server with just a single maliciously crafted packet.
The vulnerability has been patched by the Network Time Foundation with the release of NTP 4.2.8p9, which includes a total of 40 security patches, bug fixes, and
Recently released NSA exploit from “The Shadow Brokers” leak that affects older versions of Cisco System firewalls can work against newer models as well.
Dubbed ExtraBacon, the exploit was restricted to versions 8.4.(4) and earlier versions of Cisco’s Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) – a line of firewalls designed to protect corporate, government networks and data centers.
