As companies become well-established in the market, and sometimes seem to become integral to it, an obvious move is to begin acquiring other companies to help bolster their offerings further. We see this often: Microsoft, Apple, Google, and many others regularly search the market for smaller companies that would be worth bringing in under their wing. It also happens on a larger scale, but those sorts of acquisitions are far from common. Well, if a new rumor that's floating around becomes true, the market will be hit by a rather amazing acquisition. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Dell is in talks to acquire some, or all, of EMC, an enterprise storage leader that happens to own a number... Read more...
RSA decided to publicly address recent reports alleging it inked a $10 million contract with the National Security Agency (NSA) to use what's considered a flawed and broken encryption standard called elliptic curve cryptography. In an attempt to set the record straight, the RSA stated in a blog post that it's all a bunch of hogwash, so to speak. "Recent press coverage has asserted that RSA entered into a 'secret contract' with the NSA to incorporate a known flawed random number generator into its BSAFE encryption libraries. We categorically deny these allegations," RSA stated in a blog post. RSA went on to admit that it's worked with the NSA as a vendor and active member of the security community,... Read more...
Over the past few months, as the Snowden leaks have exposed increasing levels of detail about the scope and nature of the NSA's "oversight" of the Internet, there's been a great deal of discussion on how users can protect themselves. The latest leaks from the Guardian, New York Times, and Pro Publica shed light on just how futile such efforts may be. According to the latest disclosures, the NSA has cracked key encryption algorithms that formerly protected large swathes of Internet traffic, and it did so back in 2010. Previously, many such efforts were thought to be effectively impossible due to the nature and complexity of hardware required to make the job happen. It's now clear that the NSA... Read more...
The Hand of Thief Trojan made waves among security experts when RSA first announced the for-sale malware. But now that RSA has had a chance to run additional analysis, the security arm of EMC is toning down its alert. It seems that the Hand of Thief is basically a prototype. The only people getting swindled at the moment is the would-be evil genius who buys this broken malware. RSA doesn’t see the Hand of Thief Trojan as a major threat at the moment, but the developer plans improvements. Image credit: RSA As it stands, the Hand of Thief Trojan isn’t stable. According to RSA, the software has trouble stealing the data it’s meant to steal, and it can crash your Web browser –... Read more...
Linux users have long been able to claim that their platform of choice is about as safe as an OS can get, but that sentiment is getting a little harder to side with thanks to the recent discovery of the 'Hand of Thief' trojan - it's a bad one, so listen up. Hand of Thief's goal is to lead you to financial ruin by stealing sensitive information that you input into forms on supported Web browsers (Firefox and Chrome lead the pack here), such as those that you will use on banking websites. Hand of Thief's developers aren't going to be the ones milking your bank account dry, however. Instead, they're going to be selling licenses of the trojan to those who will. Current pricing is $2,000 with free... Read more...
Lenovo and security go together quite well. The company's ThinkPad line has made a name for itself over the years as being one of the most robust, rugged and secure notebook lines on the market. And now, with business users more concerned about their privacy and security, the company is taking another big step to ensure that data is kept where it should be. Lenovo is partnering with AuthenTec and RSA to deliver an "industry first" security solution for commercial laptops that combines the convenience and security of AuthenTec biometrics with the strong authentication of RSA. It's mostly for users in government and business who need two-factor RSA SecurID authentication as well as AuthenTec’s... Read more...
About 10 years ago, in mid-November 1998, Valve Software released the first installment of one of the greatest and most enduring gaming franchises in history; Half-Life.
