New Report Suggests the Cost of Cybercrime is Nearly Unknowable | MIT Technology Review

New Report Suggests the Cost of Cybercrime is Nearly Unknowable | MIT Technology Review | Mercado seguridad TIC | Scoop.it
A new report gives a wide range for what cybercrime and espionage actually cost the United States and the world.

 

A new report basically says figuring out the cost of cybercrime and espionage is nearly impossible. It says U.S. losses might be as low as $20 billion or as high as $140 billion.

 

“A very crude extrapolation would be to take this ($20 billion to $140 billion) range for the U.S., which accounts for a little more than a fifth of global economic activity, and come up with a range of $100 billion to $500 billion for global losses,” says the report, by the security company McAfee and a Washington think-tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

 

But that range is essentially a wild guess.

How to Encrypt Sensitive Data on Flash Drive

How to Encrypt Sensitive Data on Flash Drive | Mercado seguridad TIC | Scoop.it

Do you ever worry what would happen if your files fell into the wrong hands, especially those files that you kept on your external flash drive? Thankfully there are many options to encrypt sensitive data. Protectorion ToGo is one such application. While the free version is meant for private use only, it does allow you to encrypt up to two external devices. An added bonus is that the application is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8 (32bit + 64bit).

Belkin WeMo flaws could allow remote control of home electronics | Internet Of Things

Belkin WeMo flaws could allow remote control of home electronics | Internet Of Things | Mercado seguridad TIC | Scoop.it
Researchers at IOActive discovered the vulnerabilities in Belkins WeMo home automation devices.

 

Belkin's website advertises four WeMo home automation devices, which allow users to manage a number of home electronics, including light switches, heaters, fans, lamps or stereos. After downloading WeMo apps compatible with Android and iPhones, users are able to remotely control or monitor devices while out of the house.

 

The WeMo Insight Switch, for instance, sends information to users about energy usage of home devices, like A/C units, TVs and washing machines.

 

“The vulnerabilities found within the Belkin WeMo devices expose users to several potentially costly threats, from home fires with possible tragic consequences to the simple waste of electricity,” the Tuesday release from IOActive said.

 

The firm also added that other attacks, impacting users' computers and mobile devices, could be scaled via the WeMo flaws.

- Even though Apple prohibits its developers from accessing the UDID, 5.5% of the tested iOS apps still do.

 

- 72% of the top free apps track for the user's location, compared to 41% of paid apps.

 

- Although paid apps already generate revenue when downloaded, 59% of paid iOS and 24% of paid Android apps still support in-app purchasing.

During the workshop, Jacob Appelbaum actually discovered a new and previously unknown backdoor on an African activist's Mac.

Our Mac analyst (Brod) is currently investigating the sample.

It's signed with an Apple Developer ID.
