  • Macro Threats and Ransomware Make Their Mark: A Midyear Look at the Email Landscape

    TrendLabs - Malware Blog
    Email can be considered a big business—for cybercrime. In 2014, 196.3 billion emails were sent and received daily. Of that number, 108.7 billion were business emails. With the volume of business emails sent daily, it would be unimaginable for cybercriminals not to take advantage of email to target big businesses.

    TrendLabs - Malware Blog
    The security industry loves to talk about how “sophisticated” attacks can be. Usually this takes the form of us saying how advanced and sophisticated an attack is, what new methods were used to hide servers or make analysis harder, etcetera. However, it’s easy to forget that not all attacks need to be technically sophisticated; instead […]
  • FTC Has Authority to Enforce Corporate Cybersecurity

    TrendLabs - Malware Blog
    Up to now, there have been relatively few laws or regulations from government agencies that mandate just how companies should protect their data.

    Issues surrounding the Android mediaserver component continue. It has been brought to our attention that a vulnerability (CVE-2015-3823) could (theoretically) be used for arbitrary code execution as well.

  • Ashley Madison: A Tale of Sex, Lies, and Data Breaches

    TrendLabs - Malware Blog
    Data breaches rarely make for sensational news. Media outlets may report about them but public interest often dies down after a week or two. Or that was the case until the Ashley Madison breach happened. The recent leak of the Ashley Madison accounts is the culmination of a month-long digital stand-off between the site that […]

    TrendLabs - Malware Blog
    Why would Pawn Storm, the long-running cyber-espionage campaign, set its sights on a Russian punk rock group? Sure, Pussy Riot is controversial. Members of the feminist band had previously been thrown in jail for their subversive statements against the Orthodox Church and Russian patriarchal system. But why would attackers have any interest in them? What […]

    A supposed airline hack and other similar incidences this past quarter have made it clear: Attackers are finding more inventive ways to infiltrate and abuse existing technologies.
