  • WannaCry makes me want to cry!

    Network World - Networking Nuggets and Security Snippets
    As I read about the WannaCry ransomware attack, my brain is racing with thoughts about the causes and effects of this global incident. Here are my two cents:1. Ransomware continues to be a growth business, and a bit of work can provide a serious return. The FBI estimated that ransomware payments topped $1 billion in 2016, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw 100 percent year-over-year growth. 2. For those of us who’ve been in cybersecurity for a while, WannaCry brings back memories of the internet worms we saw back in the 2000s (i.e. Code Red, Conficker, MSBlast, Nimda, etc.). Once one person on a network was infected, WannaCry simply went out and infected other vulnerable systems on the network.

  • Failure to Communicate: Why SOCs Fail!

    RSA
    I’ve had the privilege of working in a few different SOCs at various maturity levels ranging from the stony shores of regulatory compliance – “Yes, we have a security solution”, to the deep shark-infested waters of a global enterprise under frequent attack by nation state-sponsored attack groups.

  • Breach at DocuSign Led to Targeted Email Malware Campaign

    Krebs on Security
    DocuSign, a major provider of electronic signature technology, acknowledged today that a series of recent malware phishing attacks targeting its customers and users was the result of a data breach at one of its computer systems. The company stresses that the data stolen was limited to customer and user email addresses, but the incident is especially dangerous because it allows attackers to target users who may already be expecting to click on links in emails from DocuSign.
