Have you been targeted by Fraud emails?
Thu, Dec 18th 2014 8:25a   Frank Paolino
Lately, we have seen an uptick of fraudulent emails. The fraudulent emails are only sent to one or two people in highly targeted attacks. First they locate the names of high level executives, Then "spoofed" message are sent allegedly from these executives to people empowered to disburse money They hope the recipient will act quickly to please the executive and send money before realizing it is a spoofed message. Many of the messages "pretend" to be internal, but that are really

Poodle + Domino SSL = Mail Problems

If you use Domino today, you effectively cannot use SSL for email (SMTP) until the promised IBM fix is available. Here is why: The fix vendors applied that patched the POODLE vulnerability broke communications with Domino servers that use SSL. These patched servers will start a secure (SSL) SMTP session but will not fall back to plain text. This means messages queued up in mail.box for sending outbound, or mail queued up at the sender that will not be received by you. The best n

IBM and Apple focus on the Enterprise

Apple is working with IBM to push into the enterprise space. Apple really has mainly focused on the consumer market, but products like IBM Traveler have made BYOD a reality. Now, with IBM, Apple is going to focus on large enterprises. Tim Cook gets a corporate partner with a great enterprise player to promote Apple as enterprise ready. Ginny Rometti mentioned security, which is an overwhelming concern with BYOD. If Apple and IBM make new offerings that satisy I

There is a new and improved version of CryptoLocker. Version 1.0 made the makers of this ransomware a lot of money, and this version 2.0 is, I predict, just one of many new "feature enhanced" releases. Judging by the Bitcoin activity, there are a lot of "willing" victims out there paying to get their files back. BleepingComputer is doing a great job documenting this, so I will point you there for good advice and a possible free fix made by Nathan Scott called the DecrypterFixe

I wanted to have a little fun at #IBMConnect so I put a GoPro camera over our booth on the Product Showcase and snapped pictures of all of our visitors over 4 days. The Product Showcase was certainly "energized", so I choose suitable music in the "William Tell Overture".

Refrigerators Now Send Spam as Well as Keeping it Cold
Mon, Jan 20th 2014 2:02p   Frank Paolino
Refrigerators now do more than keep spam, that tasty treat, cold, they also send spam, the electronic email version. That is the story of a compromised refrigerator that sends cold "spam" to unsuspecting users via it's internet connection. Viruses makers will try to add anything to their botnets, and the latest attack on "refrigerators" does not surprise me at all. The target of this attack was a refrigerator model running a flavor of Linux that had not been hardened or pr
