Ransomware Attack Hits 23 Local Governments In Texas - Pooere municipalities cannot afford the loss of income


This is fast becoming a reality likely because government municipalities (especially smaller ones) are easier targets. But we must not think poorer 3rd world municipalities are immune as they don't sit on piles of cash, as they can least afford having their services and income effected. Such attacks often mean not being able to receive income or pay creditors.

Online backups may also not be good enough it these, in turn, get overwritten by the virus. Municipalities would do well to familiarise themselves with basic preventative measures.

Saying you need to patch #skype for #security and #privacy is like saying you wear a hazmat suit in post-disaster #Chernobyl for "health". It's designed to actively attack people's privacy. That's the business model.

The attacker can manipulate this to the lowest #entropy allowed, 1 byte. The resulting session key can then easily be brute forced.

#Kaspersky promises #security and data protection. However, a data #leak allowed third parties to spy on users while they were surfing the #web. For years.

In other words, any #website can read the user's Kaspersky ID and use it for #tracking. If the same Universally Unique Identifier comes back, or appears on another website of the same operator, they can see that the same computer is being used. If this assumption is correct, Kaspersky has created a dangerous tracking mechanism that makes tracking cookies look old. In that case, websites can track Kaspersky users, even if they switch to a different browser. Worse yet, the super tracking can even overcome the browser's incognito mode.
