87% of SMBs suffered a cyberattack last year, only 44% see security as a priority

87% of SMBs suffered a cyberattack last year, only 44% see security as a priority | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
The risk of cyberattacks on SMBs has been examined in detail in a recent Sophos-sponsored report by the Ponemon Institute. The report - The Risk of an Uncertain Security Strategy - surveyed over 2,...
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

There's a huge gap between the number of small businesses that GET attacked and the number that THINK they will get attacked. Odds are just simply NOT in your favor. You've got to get serious about cybersecurity.

Facebook App Vulnerabilities Could Compromise Your Account

Facebook App Vulnerabilities Could Compromise Your Account | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Two newly discovered Android app vulnerabilities could give an attacker unrestricted access to your Facebook account.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

By now, you're probably familiar with the Skype attack where an infected account urges you to download a file... and if you are not alert, you trust the "person" (that you don't realize is hacked) and download/open the file without thinking..... well, that type of attack has now come to Android and was having a field day in the Facebook app. 

Fortunately, for the moment, the vulnerability has been patched, but that's not to stay that it won't return. 

Hackers seem to have too much time on their hands.  

Don't download stuff from someone without confirming with them that it's something you actually want and ensuring they are actually themselves.

Apple iOS Apps Can Easily Be Hijacked, Researchers Say

Apple iOS Apps Can Easily Be Hijacked, Researchers Say | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Apple iOS apps can be permanently altered to send their content calls to malicious servers, Israeli researchers have found.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

Vulnerabilities in Apple's iOS apps have surprisingly proven vulnerable to a common attack type that can happen if you take advantage of an open (non-password-protected) WiFi connection. 
This attack is similar to a "man in the middle" attack, this attack would let the data come from fake sites and result in not only a compromise of usernames/ passwords but likely a spamming with adware/malware ads as well. iOS is not alone in this vulnerability as most devices including Android that are not using a VPN could be similarly compromised by an open WiFi connection.
