LAN sockets in reception areas — unnecessary and dangerous

LAN sockets in reception areas — unnecessary and dangerous

Wired networks are generally considered more secure than Wi-Fi because they require physical access to connected devices. Nevertheless, such networks have their weaknesses, which we examine here.

LAN sockets in hallways and reception areas

Imagine that your company moves to a new office. Minor adjustments are made, perhaps some rooms are repurposed, but the previous tenant’s LAN sockets usually remain in place. After all, opening up the walls and rewiring everything takes time and money. However, some Ethernet ports might not be in the most suitable places. For example, you may find some in reception areas or hallways.

Nearly two weeks crossing Tibet – along a route we won’t forget.

Hi folks!

As you’ll have guessed from the title of this post, I recently – a mere few months since my previous mega-expedition! – had a vacation in Tibet…

Spoiler alert! It was awesome!

…But don’t feel I’ve spoiled things for you now you know the ending: there are a lot of words and – as per tradition – a lot of pics and vids coming up in a series on this oh-my-Gimalaya trip!

Ok, first, let me give you an overview of our itinerary of the trip – the where, when, how far, and what we saw – broken down into days (with altitudes noted too!)…

Where: This will come as no surprise – Tibet.

When: 7–17 October. This is straight...

A conference center used just four days a year!

Ni hao, folks!

Recently, we took part in the World Internet Conference, which takes place every year in the touristy town-on-water Wuzhen in western China, here, not far from Shanghai. This was my fourth visit, having been here before in 2015, 2017 and 2018. And since things are developing very nicely for us over in China, I’m sure it won’t be the last time either; it’s a most useful and interesting event.

This year is the sixth annual WIC here. A complex was built especially for it out of two enormous buildings, and this year they’d gone and added a third! ->

As we take on the 118th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I look to the future.

The first story is about Ring. Now, we all know about what Ring can do now, but as its relationships with law enforcement grow, are we ready for what the future holds? After that, we stay in the realm of Amazon and the future of Alexa. How would you feel if your virtual assistant had eyes and walked?

From the home space, we move to the air. This story is not “new” news, but it’s something worth keeping an eye on as the UK looks at tightening drone regulation. To close out the podcast, we take a look at healthcare and Google’s Project...

Cheat or death? The secret world of malware-like cheats in video games

Fortnite? Overwatch? League of Legends? If you’ve heard of these games but don’t know an aim-bot from a wall-hack (let alone ESP), read on to understand why some ordinary folks feel like a fish out of water in competitive matches — and why that matters.

Kurils-2019 adventure – over and out.

Kurils-2019 adventure – over and out.

All righty. After our brief inspection of the Commander Islands, we raced back to the Athens and set sail for Kamchatka. But no matter how fast we sailed, we couldn’t keep ahead of the storm – approaching sternwards. That last detail – sternwards – was actually a blessing in disguise: if it had come in from the port or starboard side it could have spelled disaster. So, in a word: phew.

In the photos below it may not be easy to grasp just how high those waves got: much higher than the Athens! Good Lord were they powerful – rocking the boat around like… a bucking bronco. Not for the squeamish. Most of the posse stayed on their bunks for a full two days...

3000% growth.

We do reeeaaally interesting work.

We protect users, build a new secure future, and chase cyber-villains the world over. At the same time, the ‘landscape’ is constantly changing, meaning there’s never a single moment we might get bored.

Yes, ‘digital’ these days penetrates even the most unlikely, remote and conservative areas of activity of Homo sapiens, and, alas, the greasy fingers of the computer underground and also the cyber-war-mongers are right there with it up to no good. In the early 2000s, I’d joke up on stages around the world about ‘smart’ [sic] refrigerators one day DDoS’ing coffee machines. Fast forward 15 years, and it’s a reality.

Hi, my server was attacked by a Ransomware virus that encrypted our entire computer and it's backup drive which was attached via USB.   The files all have e *.harma extension.   I tried the Kasperski Rakhnidecriptor tool on some of the files but it gave me an error "Unsupported Encrypted File Type" I'm not sure If I'm using the right tool .   Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm probably going to get in a lot of trouble  as both the server and all the backups were encrypted by the ransomnware.  Thank you,  George

Welcome to the Commander Islands!

Welcome to the Commander Islands!

We’ve already had a few ‘B-sides’ – Aniva and Tyuleny – on our Kurils adventure. Now it was time for a bonus track – a previously unreleased rarity, as it were: the Commander Islands!

mBlK6k4JFh_FfG6EmXb4cqFnC8PqSaRI.jpg?s=6aa3f6b23674f08b9fff63a3df3ec2de

Never heard of them? You have now. Curious name, no? Do they remind you of Commander Bond, by any chance? Oops. Digression – already!…

Well, they’re a handful of tiny islands in the Bering Sea around 175 kilometers off the Kamchatkan coast – the westernmost islands of the Aleutian Islands. And we tagged a short visit to them on to the end of out Kurils expedition. And here they are:

Beware of fleeceware

Beware of fleeceware

Remember how Pulp Fiction hitman Vincent Vega wanted to try a milkshake simply because it cost a whopping $5? That’s a completely normal reaction — many people automatically associate high price with some extraordinary quality. So, if they can sample an expensive product free, even those who don’t plan to buy are interested. Some smartphone app developers take advantage of this human trait.

‘Zavaritsky: a ‘Festival of Vivid Volcanic Color that Couldn’t Be Fuller!’

‘Zavaritsky: a ‘Festival of Vivid Volcanic Color that Couldn’t Be Fuller!’

Hi folks!

This is getting silly. Our Kurils expedition this year was in summer. Soon – it’ll be winter! So I’d better get back to my tales from the Kurilian side and make some decent progress toward finishing them; otherwise it’ll be Christmas and I’m still on about our summer holidays.

So, as every YouTuber loves to say, ‘without further ado’, let’s get back (far-)east. Specifically – ~40 kilometers to the southwest of Brouton Bay along the eastern coast of the Kuril island of Simushir, namely – at Zavaritsky Caldera.

Zavaritsky is yet another voluptuous volcano of the Kurils. Now, if Krenitsyn is the ‘King of...

Tyuleny – the resort-island… for seals.

Hi folks!

It seems a bit strange looking at some of my summer holiday photos and editing them, especially when they don’t even relate directly to the Kurils, even though they were taken on our Kurils-2019 adventure! But we’d gotten to the end of the Kurils, so there were no more of them in line for us to check out. The next island after Kunishir is Japan’s Hokkaido. So we took a right (westerly) turn, and headed toward the island of Sakhalin. I say toward, as we didn’t make it to that island. Instead we stopped at a micro-island just off one of its three southern capes – Tyuleny Island; which is appropriately named, as you’ll see in the vids and...

Terminator 6/3: Sarah Connor and a bag of chips

Terminator 6/3: Sarah Connor and a bag of chips

By the time this post goes online, Terminator: Dark Fate will have hit movie theaters worldwide. The creators of the film decided against giving it a version number, but it is the sixth movie in the franchise and completely discards the plots of the last three, so we’ll call it Terminator 6/3. In terms of practical information security, it contains only one real moment of interest: when the understandably paranoid Sarah Connor attempts to evade cell-phone tracking.

The thing is that Sarah, who has problems with the authorities in several (more precisely, all 50) U.S. states, carries her phone in an empty bag of potato chips. Her rationale...

Up an orange stream – for a fumarole-stroll.

There’s another volcanism feature on Kunashir definitely worth a visit: the fumarole ‘fields’ of Mendeleyeva Volcano. Last time we strolled across one such field; this time we walked along the river toward the second. And a wonderful walk it was too. Though it was a ‘mere’ eight kilometers one way, another eight back, it still took our group of office dwellers the full day to cover it. Still, taking our time meant the meditative-enjoyment factor was fully guaranteed!

With ongoing digital transformation and transition to cloud infrastructure, outsourcing of IT services and IT security in particular is on the rise. To get a better picture of current challenges and opportunities for MSPs across Europe, our experts conducted a survey of European MSP employees from the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Sweden, and Denmark. From this survey as well as the analytics of our annual online survey of business IT decision-makers, “Kaspersky Corporate IT Security and Risks Survey 2019,” they compiled “Maintaining MSP Momentum: Challenges and opportunities in an evolving IT security landscape.” Here are some...

Chrome in the zero-day crosshairs

Thanks to the Kaspersky Exploit Prevention subsystem in our products, we recently detected an exploit — a malicious program letting attackers gain unauthorized access to the computer — through a vulnerability in the Google Chrome browser. It used a zero-day vulnerability, that is, one that was yet unknown to the developers. It was assigned the identifier CVE-2019-13720.

We reported the vulnerability to Google, which fixed it in the latest Chrome update. Here we describe how the attack that uses this vulnerability unfolds.

Finding out what data apps really collect

Finding out what data apps really collect

Most apps collect some information about the user. Sometimes, they really need such data to operate: For example, a navigation app requires your positioning information to build a convenient route for you. Developers often use information about you to monetize or improve their service — with your prior consent. For example, they may collect anonymous statistics to find bottlenecks in their app and understand along what avenue it needs to be developed.

Chirpoy and his little brother.

Hi folks!

Yesterday you’ll recall we were on Sumishir being bowled over by its Zavaritsky Caldera. Today, sailing southwest along the string of Kurils, we first took in the rather plain Broutona and its bay of the same name (named after the British naval officer and explorer William Broughton). And after that – two small islands together referred to as Chyornye Bratya – the Black Brothers, with one called Chirpoy, and the other – Brat Chirpoyev (Chirpoy’s brother!), here.
