GReAT, Ask Them Anything 2.0

GReAT, Ask Them Anything 2.0

A lot has changed over the past four years. We’ve seen major ransomware and wipers take the Internet by storm. Empires of bots have done everything from mining crypto to helping change how people vote. And business travel has come to a standstill thanks to a viral enemy that caused a global pandemic.

As they say, what a time to be alive.

You know what hasn’t changed? Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) and its quest to help keep the good guys one step ahead of the bad ones in the virtual and physical world.

What does that have to do with four years ago? Well, my dear readers, let me tell you.

A bit over four years ago, I wrote on this very...

Sitting and rowing – down the Katun we’re going.

Sitting and rowing – down the Katun we’re going.

Onward – downward – on the best bit of our Altai-2020 expedition: the rafting bit. Again – the Argut River, this time where it meets the Katun. The same Argut, btw, along the banks of which we were trekking a couple weeks ago, astonished by the river’s sheer power.

The sound of the fast flowing water is amplified by endless echoes!

Here it’s not clear which river’s flowing into which!…

The muddy waters of the Argut fairly sully the pristine turqouse ones of the Katun ->

Naughty Argut! Look at the mess you’ve made! Alas – that dirty-milkiness from the Argut continued along the Katun, with the turquiose never to fully return (. Not to...

Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 168

Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 168

In the latest episode of the Kaspersky podcast, we look into recent news about Donald Trump’s campaign website being hacked — briefly — to promote a cryptocurrency scam. It was only a single page, but the hack comes at a critical time in the US election cycle.

From there, we move on to a story about a psychotherapy clinic in Finland that was hacked. Patients are now finding their details on the dark web, and some have been contacted by an elusive individual called “The Ransom Guy.”

To wrap up, we look at a case of fake news in the retail sector. Anyone familiar with the dearly departed Woolworths chain knows it went under in 2008 — but that didn’t...

The Altai river-traveler museum – ver. 2020.

The Altai river-traveler museum – ver. 2020.

Continuing our Altai-2020 expedition, one afternoon we moored our rafts to visit the makeshift river-traveler museum, which organically sprang up and grew over the years in a field by the junction of the Katun and Argut rivers. It’s a three-legged contraption-construction that has all manner of odd and sod hung upon it, placed there by passing river tourists:

Every year, new exhibits are added to the museum. Various art movements and styles are featured, but there’s a distinct preference for the post-industrialist avant-garde and general modern kunst!

The breadth of variety of the pieces on display is staggering:

Phishing through e-mail marketing services

Phishing through e-mail marketing services

Scammers have used various tricks over the years to bypass antiphishing technologies. Another scheme with a high success rate for delivering phishing links to targets is to use e-mail marketing services, also known as e-mail service providers (ESPs) — companies that specialize in delivering e-mail newsletters — to send messages. According to statistics we’ve obtained from our solutions, the method is gaining momentum.

Why ESP-based phishing works

Companies that are serious about e-mail threats thoroughly scan all e-mail — with antivirus, antiphishing, and antispam engines — before letting messages reach users’ inboxes. The engines not only scan...

11 brave women at the North Pole.

11 brave women at the North Pole.

This blogpost could pass as an advertisement, if it were paid for; however, it’s being published entirely voluntarily and gratis. Basically, in it, I’ll be telling you the fascinating story of 11 fearless females on an Arctic expedition up to the North Pole!…

So, what happened was that our good old friend Felicity Aston, the dauntlessly adventuresome (see why we’re good old friends?:) British explorer, whose unique Antarctic expeditions we support and sponsor from time to time (I’ve even been known to piggy-back onto one of her missions (I flew, she skied!) – to see in the New Year at the South Pole!), decided to steel herself to… try something totally...

Windows XP source code leak: Tips for businesses

Windows XP source code leak: Tips for businesses

In late September, news broke that the source code for Windows XP had leaked online. A torrent file for downloading the operating system code was published on an anonymous forum, and it spread webwide quickly. Although Web analytics service StatCounter estimates that fewer than 1% of all computers actually run Windows XP, that still represents millions of devices globally.

Why a Windows XP source code leak is bad news

Microsoft discontinued support for Windows XP way back in 2014, so anyone still using it in 2020 is taking a big risk; Microsoft will never patch the new vulnerabilities that continue to pop up. The company makes one...

Rushing down the Akkem Rush.

Rushing down the Akkem Rush.

At Tyungur, we were up early > breakfast > tents down > to the riverbank > into the Katun on rafts > off we pop > 25km of calm rafting until we reach today’s main attraction: several sets of rapids called the Akkemsky Proriv (in Russian), which translates as the Akkem Rush (aka the Akkem Fissure, Akkem Breach, Akkem Rupture, etc., but Rush is arguably closest to the original meaning in Russian, i.e., referring to the water itself, not the location it’s set in. Just to complicate things further, it’s also known as the Akkem Pipe – or Akkem Tube!!).

All Things An Exporter Should Know About e-BRC Onlin

eBRC Online is a drive to advertise paperless trade, and also the DGFT has produced a digital network for Bank Realization Certification. Utilizing the eBRC system, banks can digitally transmit forex realization from financial institutions to the DGFT server. The use of digital certification protects this procedure. DGFT BRC is a certificate issued by Banks to confirm that the exporter has received payment against his buyer's export of goods.
The procedure which was in place previously for furnishing Bank Realisation Certification was manual. A merchant had to send BRC in physical application to the concerned Regional Authority of DGFT; the export transaction details as per BRC entered...

FAQ

Q: I used to use your freeware security product, Kaspersky Free, but I can't find it on the Kaspersky website anymore. Why is it not available?

A: We have replaced Kaspersky Free with another free anti-virus, Kaspersky Security Cloud Free. Its level of security is just as high as that of Kaspersky Free, with several additional features: mobile security (Android and iOS devices), secure connection to public Wi-Fi spots (up to 300 MB a day per device), password management, account data leak verification, and personalized notifications about threats and insufficiently secure settings.

You can download Kaspersky Security Cloud Free and browse a detailed overview of its features and the table...

Five life hacks for Netflix users

Five life hacks for Netflix users

With its vast content library, including original shows, all at an affordable price and without ads, not for nothing is Netflix one of the most popular streaming services in the world. That said, nothing is perfect: Navigating Netflix’s catalog can be a pain; movies have a tendency to disappear every now and then; and in many countries certain content is wholly inaccessible. However, none of those issues is insurmountable. Here’s how you can overcome them.

How to find hidden content categories

Netflix lets you search for content by various parameters: title, cast, genre, and so forth. If you’re looking through movie titles and actors’ names, that’s...

A sign of a bright Altai future.

Briefly looking back over recent blogposts, I see you’ve had plenty on Katun already, including lots and lots of photos thereof. All the same – it’s still… too little! Accordingly, here’s some more!…

We’d already rafted some 200km since we started out on the river (where the Upper Kuragan joins it). Not a great deal given that its full length is 688km – from the foot of Mount Belukha to the mighty Siberian River Ob near the city of Biysk. And most of those first 200 kilometers were calm, steady, conducive to quiet meditation, and with non-stop extraordinarily beautiful Altai scenery….

FAQ

Q: My computer has been infected by malware. I can't install a Kaspersky product on it. What do I do?

A: Apparently, the malware in your operating system hinders the installation of the Kaspersky product.

Please use Kaspersky Rescue Disk downloadable at https://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/krd2018. This tool scans and heals infected computers if the degree of infection is so high it can't be eliminated with the help of anti-virus products or healing tools launched from within the operating system.

Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk, place it on a USB flash drive (https://support.kaspersky.com/14226#block1), use the drive to boot the computer, and launch a computer scan.

Our first story of the week takes a look at some Robin Hood types who, after using ransomware to steal from corporations, then donate a small fraction of the stolen money to nonprofit organizations. Sorry, but I am not going to call these guys heroes just yet.
