iPhone 5s : la sécurité du lecteur biométrique déjà contournée ?

iPhone 5s : la sécurité du lecteur biométrique déjà contournée ? | IT Audit, security for west african enterprises! | Scoop.it
Le célèbre groupe allemand de hackers Computer Chaos Club a réussi à tromper les protections du lecteur en quelques jours...
AMOUZOUN Mériadec's insight:

Pourtant APPLE a affirmer que touch ID était une innovation grandeur nature supposée sécuriser nos données personnelles. Si la protection biométrique constitue un moyen d'authentification sécurisé, ce coup de force réalisé contre celle de l'iphone 5s nous ammene à lui préférer le bon vieux mot de passe...!

Secure your small-business network without spending a dime

Secure your small-business network without spending a dime | IT Audit, security for west african enterprises! | Scoop.it

In 2012, 31 percent of cyberattacks were aimed at small businesses... But what if we told you that there were security controls in the tools you already own that could vastly improve your protection if you just used them? And that you could fill any gaps in protection with free security programs that are every bit as effective as their commercial counterparts?

Below are several ways to fend off cyberthreats. The only investment is your time.
- Use what you already have: Make sure that all your user accounts are protected with strong passwords and that only those employees who need administrative privileges have administrator accounts on their PCs.
- Stay up-to-date: The longer you go without implementing an applicable patch, the more at risk you are. You should have automatic updates turned on in Windows, as well as in any other applications you use that offer such a function.
- Supplement with free security tools: If you need to protect computers running Windows XP or Windows 7, you can download Microsoft Security Essentials to get comprehensive real-time protection gratis. You can use Cain and Abel to reveal vulnerabilities, determine whether your policy requirements are secure enough, and recover passwords, which is its primary function.

No need to buy expensive software. Use what you already have and other free tools to secure your small business network from cyber attacks.

I get the free tools but the average small business user does not need to use air crack. Just secure your WiFi with WPA2 Enterprise. That is enough for most people. The average business user COULD download backtrack and analyze networks but it is not required. Obsfucate your SSID. use a good 14 digit password. Truecrypt your disks. MSE is ok. But use spybot as well. and ccleaner. Your all good to go.

Are you sure that this is the solution? real sécurity cost money! i think.

AMOUZOUN Mériadec's insight:

Il a bien fallu 3 jours pour reprendre le contrôle du centre commercial !! la preuve du retard du continent en matière de sécurité. Félicitation quand même au gouvernement kenyan.

"Laws designed for terrorism should be used for terrorism", said David Anderson QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation.

Je pense qu'ils devraient arrêter de se foutre du monde. Ce ci n'est qu'une mascarade savament organisée pour redonner confiance aux internautes.
