Breathing new life into old gadgets for a better home office

Breathing new life into old gadgets for a better home office

At the office, the company provides everything you need to do your job: powerful computers, Internet access, a headset, and a webcam for videoconferencing. Not everything goes so smoothly when you are working remotely. Of course, some companies provide a laptop or pay for your Internet connection. But many people have to equip their home offices using their own resources.

That requires a lot of effort. Some families find themselves sharing just one home computer with no webcam whatsoever, for example, and find the Wi-Fi doesn’t even reach every room in the house.

One option is to buy a ton of new equipment. But you might be...

European cybersecurity webcast with global impact

European cybersecurity webcast with global impact

On September 9, 2020, at 11:00 am Brussels time, ENISA Executive Director Juhan Lepassaar and Kaspersky CEO Eugene Kaspersky will be the keynote speakers at a high-level webcast — the second of its kind — on Europe’s cybersecurity policy. Directive (EU) 2016/1148 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 July 2016 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union is the somewhat voluminous official title of the EU legislation commonly known as the NIS directive.

Although difficult to say in one breath, the name leaves no doubt about the purpose of the legislation, which...

Into resource-heavy gaming? Check out our gaming mode.

Nearly 30 years ago, in 1993, the first incarnation of the cult computer game Doom appeared. And it was thanks to it that the few (imagine!) home computer owners back then found out that the best way of protecting yourself from monsters is to use a shotgun and a chainsaw ).

Now, I was never big into gaming (there simply wasn’t enough time – far too busy:); however, occasionally, after a long day’s slog, colleagues and I would spend an hour or so as first-person shooters, hooked up together on our local network. I even recall Duke Nukem corporate championships – results tables in which would be discussed at lunch in the canteen, and...

Operation PowerFall: Two zero-day vulnerabilities

Operation PowerFall: Two zero-day vulnerabilities

Our technologies prevented an attack on a South Korean company recently. That’s just your average Wednesday, you might say — but while analyzing the cybercriminals’ tools, our experts discovered two whole zero-day vulnerabilities. They found the first in Internet Explorer 11’s JavaScript engine. That one enabled the attackers to remotely execute arbitrary code. The second, detected in an operating system service, let the attackers escalate privileges and perform unauthorized actions.

The exploits for these vulnerabilities operated in tandem. First, the victim was slipped a malicious script that a hole in Internet Explorer 11 allowed to...

Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 155

For the 155th episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Jeff and I talk about the recent Canon ransomware attack and much more.

The first story we look at is about some US lawyers asking the California DMV why (and how) they’re making $50 million a year selling driver’s license data. From there, we turn to recent news that the US government is offering a bounty of $10 million for information about election hacking.

Moving over to the gaming world, the next story takes a look at a “vigilante” who’s hacking the hackers, so to speak. GamerDoc has garnered some fame exposing cheats and cheaters in the first-person-shooter gaming world, and...

How to secure PayPal

How to secure PayPal

With hundreds of millions of users around the world, PayPal has long been an international leader in the electronic payments industry. But as we know, money never fails to attract fraud, especially now, with as much of life as possible taking place online. Here is what you need to do to stay safe when sending or receiving money through PayPal.

How secure is PayPal?

As a matter of fact, PayPal is quite a reliable platform that maintains a high level of security — and keeps improving it. Thus, the company has an official program deploying white hat hackers to unearth vulnerabilities (the so-called bug bounty), under which it has already paid out almost $4 million since...

Fake e-mail scanner

Fake e-mail scanner

In recent years, news about e-mail-based infections of corporate networks has been fairly regular (and generally connected with ransomware). So, it’s no surprise that scammers periodically use the topic to try to extract credentials for corporate mail accounts by persuading company employees to run a scan of their mailbox.

The ploy is aimed at people who know about the potential threat of malware in e-mail but have insufficient understanding of how to deal with it. Infosec personnel would do well to explain the tricks to employees and use such examples to illustrate what employees should look for to avoid falling victim to cybercriminals.

Top-5 K-technologies that got us into the Global Top-100 Innovators.

We’ve done it again! For the second time we’re in the Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators – a prestigious list of global companies that’s drawn up based on their patent portfolios. I say prestigious, as on the list we’re rubbing shoulders with companies such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Symantec and Tencent; also – the list isn’t just a selection of seemingly strong companies patents-wise: it’s formed upon the titanic analytical work of Clarivate Analytics, which sees it evaluate more than 14,000 (!) candidate companies on all sorts of criteria, of which the main one is citation rate, aka ‘influence’....

For the 154th episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Dave and I spend most of our time talking about ransomware and gaming.

Our first story is about Garmin’s recent battle with Evil Corp and WastedLocker ransomware. This story is still developing, and the coming weeks could bring more news.

We stay with the topic of ransomware and discuss a new report of LG and Xerox being hit as well. Both companies appear to have been struck by the Maze gang and have seen their data published by the gang online. For our third story, we look at CWT’s recent bout with ransomware.

From there, we hop over to the world of gaming and discuss the new...

Make your digital life easier with Kaspersky solutions

Make your digital life easier with Kaspersky solutions

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, self-isolation, closed borders, and a host of other restrictions, this year has unexpectedly catapulted us into a future where virtual life is no less saturated with activity (it may be even more so) than real life.

The old question of what to do online has faded into obscurity. Now, in 2020, absolutely everything is happening on the Internet. And another question has now come to the fore: How can we make using the Internet as comfortable and convenient as possible? After all, right now we are dealing with enough stress without having to overcome technical problems as well.

Five permissions Android games do not need

Five permissions Android games do not need

By default, apps on your phone have very limited permissions. To gain access to most of your data — and potentially dangerous Android features — they need your explicit consent. Android does that for security reasons; if permissions have potential for abuse, it’s better if an app doesn’t have them by default.

Apps actually need some permissions to do their jobs. For example, AR games really do require access to the camera. But even legitimate apps often want more than they really need. Here are five permissions that bona fide games definitely don’t need, and of course malware masquerading as a game would love to have.

For this post, we’re using...

How to share subscriptions without tears

How to share subscriptions without tears

The digital world is made up of services. Services are available by subscription. Subscriptions are linked to accounts. But not everyone wants to sign up and pay for a bunch of subscriptions, especially if they can borrow a friend’s or relative’s account. Or can they? Let’s dive in to learn about who you can “lend” content to in popular services and on what terms. And what will happen if you try to bend the rules.

Never trust, always verify: The Zero Trust security model

The Zero Trust model has been gaining popularity among organizations in recent years. According to 2019 data, 78% of information security teams had implemented this model or at least were planning to make the move. Here, we break down the Zero Trust concept to see what makes it attractive for business.

The perimeter is no more

Perimeter security, a common term in corporate infrastructure protection, encapsulates the use of thorough checks for any and all attempts to connect to corporate resources from outside that infrastructure. Essentially, it establishes a border between the corporate network and the rest of the world. Inside...

Analysis of WastedLocker targeted ransomware

Analysis of WastedLocker targeted ransomware

In late July 2020, tech news sites were brimming with articles about Garmin. Various Garmin services, including device syncing with the cloud and tools for pilots, were disabled. The dearth of accurate information left everyone theorizing wildly. For our part, we decided to wait for some concrete data before assessing the situation.

In its official statement, Garmin confirmed that it had been hit by a cyberattack that interrupted online services and encrypted some internal systems. The information available at the time of this writing indicates that the attackers used the WastedLocker ransomware. Our experts performed a detailed technical...

Speedrunning world record secured

Speedrunning world record secured

Speedrunner Xiae just broke a world record, rushing through Doom Eternal in 1 hour, 8 minutes and 52 seconds.

What is speedrunning (and why is performance important for it)?

People who have beaten a single-player game at its highest difficulty level sometimes move on to speed runs, competing to finish the entire game — from the very beginning to the very end — faster than anyone else.

Speedrunners in action can be a ton of fun to watch. Some seek out glitches in the game to minimize their time, while others prefer sticking to the rules, still managing to finish games faster than an average player can complete just the first level. For example, Doom...

In its first four years, the project has helped millions of people get their files back without paying ransomware fees.

From there, they look at how the recent Garmin ransomware incident has affected flying thanks to flyGarmin being knocked offline during the attack.

They also look at how the US government is trying (once again) to add backdoors that will allow law enforcement agencies to sneak into encrypted messages and traffic.

Lazarus experiments with new ransomware

Lazarus experiments with new ransomware

The Lazarus group has always stood out for using methods typical of APT attacks but specializing in financial cybercrime. Recently, our experts detected fresh, previously unexplored VHD malware, which Lazarus seems to be experimenting with.

Functionally, VHD is a fairly standard ransomware tool. It creeps through the drives connected to a victim’s computer, encrypts files, and deletes all System Volume Information folders (thereby sabotaging System Restore attempts in Windows). What’s more, it can suspend processes that could potentially protect important files from modification (such as Microsoft Exchange or SQL Server).

Five regular checks for SMBs

Five regular checks for SMBs

It is not always economically viable for small and medium-size businesses to maintain a dedicated IT security team, so it often happens that one person is in charge of monitoring the entire infrastructure. Sometimes he or she is not even a permanent, full-time employee.

Sure, a good administrator can do a lot, but even a pro might miss something, particularly if issues are mounting and time is short. So, it’s worth establishing a few habits. Here are our Top 5 regular checks.

Virtual Preview: Black Hat 2020

Let’s be honest: No one, and I mean no one, could have predicted 2020’s particular challenges. If you know anyone who says they knew it would all go down like this, please send them my way — I have a special present for them.

The vast majority of the population has had to make major changes to the way they live and work. Few were at all prepared for so many people to be working from home, needing to wear masks outside of the home, and lots more. With that said, one group seems almost immune to the pandemic and the changes surrounding it: cybercriminals.

For many, life revolves around the smartphone.
