Now may be a good time to change your eBay password

eBay has been hacked in what many called a historic breach with 145 million user records taken by hackers. This breach happened three months ago and we're only hearing about it now. User passwords were among the many bits of information taken so every eBay buyer and seller should go in and change their password to make sure thaty they are safe from further invasion.

Hackers take personal data in Kickstarter breach

Hackers have recently infiltrated Kickstarter to take personal information from users.  Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler said in a blog post the breach did not give hackers access to credit card information. But it gave them access to usernames, email addresses, phone numbers, mailing addresses, and encrypted passwords. The company urges all users to change their passwords for their accounts and for any other site that uses the same password. The company did not reveal the number of customers affected by the breach.


Modified charger can hack into any iOS device

Give a hacker one of these modified chargers and they can push any software they want into your Apple gadget within a minute of it being plugged in. Georgia Institute of Technology researchers warn that all users are at risk because this device doesn’t need any interaction and can hide the apps it installs from your device’s app list. It isn’t clear yet if it can upload malicious codes since iOS devices, by default, can only run and install properly signed apps.

While it is considered a worrying breakthrough, the charger itself doesn’t look like a regular iPhone or iPad charger. Since it is based on a credit card-sized BeagleBone Linux PC, its circuitry won’t seem to fit into one at the moment. The hack and the charger’s capabilities will be showcased at the Black Hat security conference in July.

Microsoft deems Windows Gadgets vulnerable to hacker exploits, issues fix

Gadgets were Microsoft's answer to Apple's Widgets. Mini apps that could run on top of your desktop and give you weather and news updates, flight information, stock tickers, webcam feeds, you name it

Aside from being an unwelcome reminder of the train wreck that was Windows Vista, it seems these Gadgets are extremely dangerous and should be removed completely.

"An attacker who successfully exploited a Gadget vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the context of the current user," company officials declared in an advisory issued yesterday. "If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take complete control of the affected system." To be successful, they added: "An attacker would have to convince a user to install and enable a vulnerable Gadget."

Bad Gadgets! The best way to deal with this is to disable them completely and Microsoft has pulled the Gadget library altogether. In order to fix the situation Microsoft has enabled a quick fix that disables the sidebar and the widgets altogether. 


Symantec: 36% of online attacks target SMB's

Symantec  announced the findings of its June 2012 Symantec Intelligence Report, which shows 36 percent of all targeted attacks (58 per day) during the last six months were directed at businesses with 250 or fewer employees. As reported in the recent ISTR, this figure was 18 percent at the end of December 2011.
