Antartcic sketches

This year we became the main sponsor of The Antarctic Biennale Expedition. 
Hope, you enjoy my Antartcic sketches:

It brought together approximately 100 participants — artists, researchers, and visionaries from all over the world — to explore and to think about a universal cultural future for Antarctica as a model of other “shared spaces” such as Ocean and Outer Space. Eugene Kaspersky joined the team on this journey and now is ready to share his views on this magnificent continent.

What is HuMachine?

What is HuMachine?

We attribute the effectiveness of our products to the HuMachine Intelligence concept, which is a basis of what we call True Cybersecurity. The essence of HuMachine Intelligence is a fusion of three fundamental things: big data, machine learning, and our analysts’ expertise. But what is behind these words? Let us try to explain this without getting deep into technical details.

The term big data should not be taken literally, as if it were a large array of information stored somewhere. It is not just a database; it is a combination of technologies that allows for instant processing of large volumes of data in order to extract threat...

Staying safe in 2018 and beyond

Staying safe in 2018 and beyond

Now that the Internet is a commodity, a familiar and ever-present resource, lots of people have gotten casual about its dangers. Others — kids — never knew a time without websites at their fingertips, and no more fear cyberthreats than they fear a television.

Some wags have even put it out there that they don’t think any paid security products are necessary. Just let Microsoft and Apple security do their thing, they say. Don’t pirate movies, go to shady websites, or open unexpected e-mail attachments and you’ll be fine, they say. Ignore the independent expert tests, they do.

In fact, with cybersecurity a complex, multilayered proposition, with...

Attacks on enterprise security: Microsoft services as a weapon

Attacks on enterprise security: Microsoft services as a weapon

Hackers have gone big with the exploitation of legitimate software. Several reports at the Black Hat 2017 conference demonstrated that Microsoft enterprise solutions could be quite useful in an attacker’s hands.

Companies that use hybrid clouds need to adopt different security considerations than those that use traditional cloud systems. However, in practice they are not updating fast enough, and that results in numerous security blind spots that attackers can exploit, as was demonstrated in July at the hacker conference Black Hat 2017. Studies showed how a typical office infrastructure can actually help attackers remain...

Eugene - I know Russia is getting a bad press at the moment, especially with Donald Trump and LGBT rights in Russia.

How is Kaspersky overcoming the challenges that these bring with them. Hopefully people do not believe everything they read, and also realise that some of the views coming out of Russia aren't held by everyone in the country.

I've been using Kaspersky for years and have many Russian friends who have been nothing but supportive and wonderful (I'm also very jealous every time I see Eugene's new pictures on Flickr!)

Cybersecurity depends on partnership

Cybersecurity depends on partnership

In the world of cybersecurity, partnerships are of much importance. Cybersecurity companies partner among themselves to share data and help each other build stronger security solutions that can better protect their users. They also partner with law enforcement agencies to fight cybercrime. Partnerships with software developers are equally important, because security solutions have to work smoothly with other software, especially with operating systems.

That, of course, can be easily achieved if the operating system vendor creates its own, fully compatible security solution. However, having just one security solution for each operating system is not...

Is your encrypted USB drive secure?

Is your encrypted USB drive secure?

How can you be sure the “secure” USB drive you’re using is really secure and the data you store on it can’t be extracted? That’s exactly the question Google’s security researchers Ellie Bursztein, Jean-Michel Picod, and Rémi Audebert addressed in their talk, “Attacking encrypted USB keys the hard(ware) way,” at the recent Black Hat USA 2017.

WY76gddwSMR0JlG7sVa-MUHet50uM7UX.jpg?s=e54bf31da134b5b4d5e45daf6aed63eb

Researchers say that at present, secure USB drive manufacturers are following the FIPS 140 certification standard, which was developed by NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) for all kinds of cryptography modules, both hardware and software. The certification involves a...

The Tian Shan Express.

The Tian Shan Express.

Walking on ice for days is… unusual, but thoroughly awesome at the same time.

You might think that since there are no winding paths you could walk ‘as the crow flies’ across a glacier, but you’d be wrong. Much zigzagging is needed in-between and around mounds of rubbly rocks and glacial ‘icebergs’. Walking over smaller rubbly rock is tricky too. And walking on the ice is hardly a walk in an ice-free park either – especially when you can’t see the ice under a thin film of small rocks. But these inconveniences pale into insignificance when you have a look around at the oh-my glaciation landscapes all around!

Facebook’s CSO: Security specialists have to start solving real security problems and avoid the fancy ones

Facebook’s CSO: Security specialists have to start solving real security problems and avoid the fancy ones

During his opening talk at the Black Hat 2017 conference, Alex Stamos, Facebook’s chief security officer, talked about preventing actual damages and being OK with compromises — things that every information security specialist should be doing. This CSO at Facebook is no slouch: His team has been protecting a really complex IT system and 2 billion users’ worth of data.

According to Stamos, the security industry suffers from several adolescent problems, the main one being nihilism. That means specialists prefer to focus on “fancy,” technically complex security problems...

Ice, Ice Walkie.

Ice, Ice Walkie.

I’m a big fan of glaciers, and been lucky enough to have seen plenty – all over the world: in Patagonia, the Alps, the Caucasus, Altai (where I briefly walked on one), and New Zealand. It goes without saying also in Antarctica and Greenland; and I’ve seen plenty more from a plane while flying over them – but I guess those don’t really count. However, I’d never fully immersed myself in the unique experience of trekking across glacial ice and moraines for days on end. And I’d never met anyone who had. Or heard of anyone ever doing so. Until this summer when I finally had a go after dreaming about doing so for decades…

Breaking electronic locks — just like in those hacker movies

Breaking electronic locks — just like in those hacker movies

What do movie characters typically do when there is a door with an electronic lock on their way? They call a hacker, of course. The hacker connects some sort of contraption to the lock. During the next several seconds, the device picks every possible combination and shows it on its (obligatory, bright) segment display. Voilà! The door is open.

At Black Hat 2017, Colin O’Flynn, who presented a report on breaking electronic door locks, made a joke about the hardest challenge for characters in such a film — coming up with a brilliant line for that moment when the door opens.

Out (of H1 2017) with an (Industrial) Bang.

The purpose of my trip to SVX Ekaterinburg was to visit the industrial exhibition Innoprom. It’s all about metalworking technologies, machine building, all types of materials, machine tools, pipes, wires, wheels, robots, etc.

Japan is the exhibition’s partner country this year, so there were many inscriptions in Japanese:

Now, here’s a reading exercise: knowing the five symbols in ‘ka-su-pe-ru-su-ki’, guess what this inscription in Katakana reads:

Impressive results on the anti-APT front

As we have mentioned before, we consider independent tests not as an indicator of our solutions’ effectiveness, but more as a tool to improve our technologies. Therefore, we rarely publish stories about test success, despite our products’ consistently high performance. However, the Advanced Threat Defense certification, conducted by ICSA Labs test lab is worth highlighting.

Don’t Skype and type

Many of us talk on Skype, Hangouts, WhatsApp, or Viber while using the computer for something else. You already know it’s not very polite, but it can be dangerous as well. Your conversation partner might find out what you are typing.

Click, click, click — almost every person talking on the phone or Skype knows that his or her conversation partner may be chatting or doing something else while conversing. The sound of typing on a physical computer keyboard is rather recognizable.

Hacking industrial robots

As unpleasant as it is to see a ransomware message pop up on your monitor, WannaCry or ExPetr/NotPetya are not worst-case scenarios. Researchers demonstrated far more physical cyberattacks at the Black Hat hacking conference.

Thousands of factories around the world employ robots whose mechanical manipulators move boxes around, drill through parts, and perform other actions by following preprogrammed routines. These robots are quite complex, consisting of a computer (used for monitoring by an operator), a controller, and a mechanical manipulator. A program with logical operations, such as “lift the box” or “turn the arm,” is created on the control...

Now, it’s time for another travel-related installment.

Sanya is a good place to get some R&R by the sea and catch up on sleep; if only the holidays weren’t so short…. Once again it’s time to board a plane, and… twiddle my thumbs for 3.5 hours, waiting for departure clearance. Yeah, such things happen here every now and again. Later, I heard that at the same time, some people had to wait for 6 hours for their departure at Beijing airport! That would be enough to drive you mad… When you’re actually traveling in a plane, time passes much quicker than when your departure is delayed indefinitely, and you’re just sitting around in the airport building or in a plane...
