Μια νέα phishing απάτη κυκλοφορεί για το Facebook εδώ και ένα μήνα περίπου. Emails με τίτλο “Ανακοίνωση Ακύρωσης του λογαριασμού σας στο Facebook“ ενημερώνουν τους δικαιούχους ότι οι λογαριασμοί τους πρέπει να επιβεβαιωθούν επειδή υπάρχουν υπόνοιες ότι δεν είναι αυθεντικοί.
In an attempt to better evade detection, cybercriminals are increasingly configuring their command and control infrastructure in such a way that initial malware callbacks communicate with a server located in the same country as the newly infected machines.
The second Tuesday of the month is upon us, and that means it’s once again time to get your patches on, people (at least for readers running Windows or Adobe products). Microsofttoday pushed out nine patch bundles to plug security holes in Windows and its other products. Separately, Adobe issued updates for its Flash and Shockwave media players that address four distinct security holes in each program.
Microsoft called special attention to a cumulative update forInternet Explorer that fixes two critical vulnerabilities present in virtually every version of IE ever produced, including IE 9, 10 and IE on Windows RT, the operating system for mobile devices and tablets.
The other critical patch in the bunch addresses a dangerous vulnerability in the Windows Remote Desktop Client, which allows systems to be managed remotely. For a rundown of the other updates released today, check out the Qualys blog, the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for April 2013 and the Microsoft Security Response Blog.
