#BringBackOurGirls

The White House, Washington

I was in the first company of Marines to enter Baghdad in 2003. As a combat veteran, I know the cost of war. It is something I still carry with me today in the U.S. House of Representatives, where I have the privilege of representing the people of northeast Massachusetts. And I am reminded of it every time the questions of war and peace come before Congress.

The Pentagon plans to spend $132 million dollars on credit monitoring for current and former employees who were impacted by the breach of the US Office of Personnel Management. Ken Westin, Security Analyst for Tripwire, Lamar Bailey, leader of Tripwire's Vulnerability and Exposures Research Team (VERT) and Craig Young, Cybersecurity Researcher for Tripwire agree the money would be far better spent on actually fixing the problem instead of credit monitoring.

Security researcher Graham Cluley has today published a post on ESET’s We Live Security blog which discusses the recent announcement from the British Police that they have arrested six people in connection with distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that attempted to bring down websites belonging to – amongst others – a national newspaper, a school and a number of online retailers.

Enter, Femi Adesina: Buhari will still balance his appointments

DATELINE: August 28, 2015

"The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Friday assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari’s political appointments will balance out very soon.

Adesina spoke while featuring on a radio programme, Political Platform, on RayPower 100.5FM, monitored by our correspondent.

He was reacting to criticisms that have trailed the President’s appointments, which are believed to favour the Northern part of the country.

Adesina said the President was aware of federal character and expressed the believe that there would be balance by the time he made more appointments in September.

In response to a recent blog post from Brian Krebs which analyses who may have been responsible for the Ashley Madison breach, Mark James, IT security specialist at ESET says:

It has been reported that Humberside Police are warning people to beware of a new email scam by criminals claiming to be from Royal Mail. They've targeted businesses and personal users, persuading the victim to click on a link within the email that infects their computer with CryptoLocker ransomware. Barracuda Networks’ Wieland Alge on the story reacts:

OPSWAT releases its quarterly market share report with new coverage for top anti-malware vendor market share, security practice comparisons between Mac and Windows users, and Windows device health statistics.

LONDON, UK: OPSWAT has announced that their quarterly market share reports will now look at anti-malware market share as opposed to the antivirus market share that has been covered in past reports. These changes are in response to the changes in the marketplace (which OPSWAT's technology has already shifted to recognise). Over time, the threat landscape has changed and the anti-malware community has responded with new products that detect a wider range of threats including PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications), spyware, keyloggers and botnets. This important shift will therefore be reflected in OPSWAT's future market share reports.
