Posted by Naomi Price on Sep 26, 2014 1:41:21 PM

As many MSPs have already heard, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) reported Wednesday that there is a new bug, termed "Shellshock" or "Bash" bug, that is affecting Unix-based operating systems such as Linux and Mac OSX.

The vulnerability affects the Unix command shell “Bash” (Bourne Again Shell), which is installed not only on computers, but also on other devices that use a subset of Linux, such as smart locks, cameras, and storage and multimedia devices.

The alleged iCloud hack: Your data is safe with Intronis

Posted by Manny Veiga on Sep 2, 2014 11:44:38 AM

A massive reported breach of private celebrity images this weekend has called into question the security of Apple's iCloud service.

Apple says it is investigating claims that hackers were able to access the private iCloud online data storage service by exploiting a vulnerability in its software. According to the Wall Street Journal, a flaw in the Find My iPhone service may have enabled unlimited opportunities for hackers to guess users' iCloud passwords until they could find the right one.

This type of "brute force" attack is normally prevented by password lockout features, but Find My iPhone apparently did not have such a feature until Apple released a corrective patch yesterday.

Posted by Manny Veiga on Aug 15, 2014 12:53:21 PM

It's an issue that doesn't get as much attention, but a new analysis from security researchers at Symantec sheds some light on the increasing presence of malware that specifically targets virtual machines.

In the whitepaper "Threats to Virtual Environments", Symantec threat researcher Candid Wuesst described an analysis of malware samples submitted by more than 200,000 consumers since 2012. According to the report, around 18 percent of the samples studied tried to detect the presence of VMware virtual machines.

Canada's anti-spam email law made a malware risk possible

Posted by Manny Veiga on Jul 4, 2014 8:30:00 AM

July 1 was a big day for Canadian businesses. It was this past Tuesday that Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) officially went into effect, legally prohibiting any business from sending any sort of electronic message - including emails, texts, and instant messages - without prior consent from the recipient. 

The new law is meant to curb spam emails, but security experts warned in recent weeks that it may also have unintended consequences, putting many consumers at risk from receiving predatory phishing emails that could install malware.
