Stories For Discussion
- Lifelock, where's my piece of the pie? - [Darren] - PWNT.
- Energizer up in your backdoors - [Larry] - Nice, thanks Energizer for including a backdoor on port 7000 for your battery charger software. However, the windows firewall should block it, but what happens when you shut it down.
- Secured WiFi accces in your…Ford? - [Larry] - Why does this scare me about adding Wifi to the car, especially, when they are combining it with bluetooth, and some limited car control.
- Some P2P protection? - [Larry] - LimeWire, a great server of malware is now integrating AVG into the client for some malware protection…
- Buy a pre-owned Android - [Larry] - Vodafone spain sold an Android phone with the Mariposa bot, Conficker and a password stealing trojan on the memory card. When plugged into the PC it fired off to start contacting C&C channels, and tried to compromise other machines on the network. Good thing that it was purchased by a Panda AV' analyst…
- Exploit for new IE hole - [PaulDotCom] - Even more interesting than this IE 0day is some commentary by HD Moore. HD says that its sad how vendors have to see an exploit in Metasploit before they release the patch.
- Apache ISAPI Vulnerability - [PaulDotCom] - REmote exploit for Apache servers, I believe its limited to Windows. Heard from Bob, and he says this works really well.
- Don't Read You Email At Public Terminals At A Security Conference - [PaulDotCom] - The best part is if you look at the animated gif that scrolls the pictures, the web browsers are reading OWA and you can see the certificate error. This is classis, you can clearly see it right in the pictures too!
- Securityfocus closes shop! - [PaulDotCom] - What a bogus way for Symantec to say, "we're a corporate giant with no use for the community, come to our corporate site and then buy our products". This part cracks me up: he enormous growth in dedicated portals and alternative news sources such as social networking sites allows us to get our security news and information from a variety of sources and as a result, it makes sense for SecurityFocus to evaluate how best to serve its readers.
