Zika and Chikungunya Viruses Threaten Public Health

This month, the World Health Organization declared the Zika virus to be a public health emergency. Health officials suspect that Zika is linked to birth defects, including microcephaly, a condition that prevents a baby’s brain and skull from developing properly. Another virus that is spreading rapidly, Chikungunya, can cause chronic joint pain that lasts for months or even years. Zika and Chikungunya are both spread by mosquito bites. Currently, there is no vaccine for either virus.

ISIS Hackers Love To Threaten The US, But Don’t Expect Them To Turn Off the Lights Quite Yet

ISIS Hackers Love To Threaten The US, But Don’t Expect Them To Turn Off the Lights Quite Yet

The Islamic State group wants the world to believe it’s not just a terrorist group but a dangerous hacking collective capable of infiltrating critical digital networks in the U.S. and elsewhere. Don’t believe the hype, at least not yet. Hackers who claim to be affiliated with the extremist group — also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh — have a “strong intent” to penetrate the U.S. energy grid, U.S. officials told CNN in October. But the group has shown no indication it’s capable of such an attack, and national security officials have consistently warned that rival nation-states pose the biggest threat to the 16 critical infrastructure sectors in the U.S. Still, ISIS supporters have sought to portray them as a credible hacking threat over the past six months by claiming to “leak” information about U.S. government and military personnel — which was actually already available. “Basically, there’s a slew of hacking collectives who support ISIS, but thus far there’s not a group that’s officially hacking on their behalf,” said Alex Kassirer, an ISIS hacking analyst at the global intelligence firm Flashpoint. “They’ve been extremely prolific in terms of how much they’ve been doing, but some of the data dumps they’ve done are actually recycled from […]

Security bug could threaten 950 million Android devices

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

In recent weeks, at least two potentially frightening new vulnerabilities have been discovered that could threaten an estimated 95 percent of the one billion devices running the Android operating system. The good news is that as of this writing, there have been no documented attacks on Android devices that take advantage of these two security vulnerabilities. The bad news is that now that information on these security vulnerabilities has been widely published, as well as presented at the recent Black Hat hacker and security convention in Las Vegas, it may only be a matter of time until some bad guys start to take advantage of these security vulnerabilities. Google, the progenitor of Android, was promptly made aware of the vulnerabilities as soon as they were uncovered, and has produced patches and fixes for many of the Android devices that have these vulnerabilities. The problems is that with the exception of a few models of Nexus smart phones supported directly by Google, it is up to the phone manufacturers or the cell phone carriers to release the upgrades and patches to close these vulnerabilities. At present, none of the major third party security software publishers provide any protection, leaving many of […]
