5 Unsettling cyberthreats

Malwarebytes - 2 hours 49 min ago

Cyberthreats are typically boring, repetitive, and require a reasonably predictable remediation process. A SQL injection is a SQL injection, no matter who’s trying it.  But what about the outliers? What about threats that impact you, but you can’t remediate, or establish a policy to cover?

Here are 5 cyberthreats that if you’re not frightened by, you should be.

  1. VNC roulette. This was a website that scanned for computers that allowed for remote sessions, but were unsecured by passwords or encryption. A fair amount of screenshots the site collected were from average users who simply failed to set up proper security settings. But there were also machines for which that failure was much more serious, like SCADA systems, CCTVs, and water treatment plants.

 

  1. A public drone feed? Last week a security blogger discovered what appeared to be a publically accessible Predator drone feed. As it turned out, the video was actually an unclassified demo page created by a defense contractor using a misconfigured web server. While not exactly the OPSEC blunder viewers thought, the amount of critical infrastructure exposed to the internet and managed via unaccountable third parties is food for thought.

 

  1. Mirai botnet. Used in some of the largest DDoS attacks ever, including one to silence Brian Krebs, Mirai scans the internet for Internet of Things devices using factory default credentials and infects them. What’s the scope of a Mirai attack? Ars technica reported a Mirai DDoS on French web host OVH of 1.7 terabytes.  That’s not the scary part. The scary part is that the IoT market is booming, they have one of the most abysmal records of security engineering and poor judgment ever seen. And as of 2016, the most conservative estimation for IoT devices on the market was 6.4 billion.

 

  1. RATs. Some of us are familiar with remote access tools used to spy on the unwitting and sometimes take compromising pictures. But what happens when a RAT is embedded in a SaaS tool? Tech Support scammers have been hit by third-party business services who sold their service with an extra addition of DarkComet. Given how tough it can be to vet a SaaS offering, the potential to impact legitimate businesses is very large.

 

  1. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Nobody likes fraud and abuse, so what’s the big deal an act designed to keep them off of computers? Well, the act was written in 1986, prompted by a White House screening of the movie WarGames (no, really) and criminalized those who

“having knowingly accessed a computer without authorization or exceeding authorized access”

That bold part has proved problematic in recent years, as the automated scraping of content, saving public data that the owner didn’t intend to make public, and landing on unexpected pages due to a web sites misconfiguration have all been interpreted as violations of the law at one point or another. This is absolutely scary, as the act and its capricious enforcement have led to a chilling effect over vulnerability disclosure and introduced a risk to researchers who might otherwise work with law enforcement.

These are all scary cyberthreats not because of their technical sophistication, but more because they are failures of organizations and institutions that manage technology. Your security team can patch a zero-day vulnerability, but not the executive that insists his password be set to ‘1234’ for ‘convenience.’ When you have strong organizations, the cyberthreats you face suddenly get much less scary.

How to Create a 7-Stage Gradient

Knitting | Work in Progress - 10 hours 59 min ago
By now, it's obvious I'm a fan of ombres and gradients in all their forms, but there's something particularly appealing about seven-stage gradients, the next topic in our ongoing series.

Recently in How to Create a 6-Stage Gradient, I mentioned an easy way to adapt that strategy to create a seven-color gradient. Today, we're focusing on a different approach, but it works equally well.

6. Seven-stage gradientColsie Green Gradient

Yarn. Cotton Fleece (Brown Sheep)
Stitch. This fast, easy slipped rib stitch is stretchy, reversible and does a respectable job of blending colors.

Strategy.  Solid sections are connected by transitional sections with two-row stripes. To achieve a similar look:
  • Choose four related colors. 
  • Arrange them dark to light or light to dark.
  • Work the section 1 with CC1.
  • Work the section 2 with CC1 and CC2.
  • Work the section 3 with CC2.
  • Work the section 4 with CC2 and CC3.
  • Work the section 5 with CC3.
  • Work the section 6 with CC3 and CC4.
  • Work the section 7 with CC4.

                  In this instance, the colors were worked as follows:
                  • Section 1: New Age Teal
                  • Section 2: New Age Teal and Sage
                  • Section 3: Sage
                  • Section 4: Sage and Light Jade
                  • Section 5: Jade
                  • Section 6: Jade and Rue
                  • Section 7: Rue

                  Seven-stage gradients work with any color combination, and because they're infinitely adaptable, they hold universal appeal. As a bonus, adding a fifth color makes it easy to expand this seven-stage gradient into a nine-stage version.
                  Uncertain where to start? Try creating a neutral ombre using four shades of grey ranging from deep charcoal to light silver, or four earthy tones ranging from dark brown to light sand. Or try a vivid scheme using saturated shades of fuchsia, purple, turquoise and lime.

                  Small, quick projects like these mitts, which feature leftovers generated by a steady stream of projects worked in shades of green, are an effective way to transform remnants and random skeins into something fun and functional. I'm off to tackle more examples for the next round of ombre and gradient how-to posts, and hopefully make some headway on the way-too-many WIPs on the needles.

                  Meanwhile, I encourage you to choose four colors that speak to you, cast on something simple, and experiment with the rich possibilities of seven-stage gradients. And if you do, be sure to come back and tell us about it.

                  The souls of the worshipers that make bargains with the powers of Chaos become trapped within the Outer Darkness. These souls attract a myriad of particles of stone, dirt, dust, and worse in the darkness between worlds this becomes a pseudo living body for the monster.

                  Tentative - Tavern Talk Live Call In Show - Test - 10 PM to 1030 PM Eastern Thursday May 25th.

                  Tenkar's Tavern - Tue, 05/23/2017 - 22:51
                  Alright. I've done some research, so it SHOULD work in theory, just need to test how WELL it works in practice.

                  Thursday night at 10 PM Eastern we are going to do a test run of the Tavern Talk Live Call In Show via Facebook Live. I expect things to go all buggered, but that IS the point of a test.

                  Why Facebook and not Youtube? Because Youtube had some major hiccups when Zach and I were using that for the livecasts. Hell, in the end we might wind up using Youtube - thus the testing this Thursday Night.

                  I'll post the Google Voice number on Thursday before we start the test.

                  This is either going to rock hard or suck eggs ;)

                  Huzzah!

                  Once the kinks work out we'll set a schedule and general topics. I'm figuring one 30 to 60 min show once a week, with alternate weeks being late evening and late morning my time. In any case, that's putting the horse before the cart. Need to see if the idea works on the technical level first...
