Vorsicht: Tausende iPhone-Apps mit Sicherheitslücke

Vorsicht: Tausende iPhone-Apps mit Sicherheitslücke | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Security-SuperGAU für alle Nutzer von iPhones und iPads: Experten haben eine Lücke in iOS-Apps entdeckt, die es erlaubt, die komplette Kommunikation über fremde Server umzuleiten. Tausende Apps sollen betroffen sein.

 

Über HTTP Request Hijacking sollen sich Hacker in iOS-Apps einschleichen und so den Datentraffic über eigene Server umleiten können. Nach erfolgreichem Angriff soll die Umleitung dann permanent aktiv sein.

 

===> Einzige Abhilfe schafft ein Update oder eine Neuinstallation der App. <===

Teachers' Guide to Social Media Privacy and Security

Teachers' Guide to Social Media Privacy and Security | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

 

I know several teachers are still struggling to come to grips with this concept but I am hoping that by readying the guide I posted yesterday together with the one I have today, you will be able to have a clear and practical procedure of how to go about explaining digital footprint to your students. Enjoy

Hacking Twitter ‘incredibly easy,’ security specialist says

Hacking Twitter &#8216;incredibly easy,&#8217; security specialist says | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Two bucks and a rudimentary command of the English language is enough for a successful Twitter hack, the likes of which was carried out against Associated Press Tuesday when hackers tweeted the false report that President Obama had been injured in explosions at the White House.

"It is incredibly easy to do, it takes zero technical skill and it has a high success rate," said Ryan Purita, forensic examiner and security specialist with Vancouver's Sherlock Forensics. "For the average Joe, it might be impossible to do, but for the average 14-year-old who lives on the Internet, it's easy."

 

The bogus tweet, which read: "Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured," resulted in an immediate stock market drop, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunging 150 points within seconds before recovering almost as quickly.

ENISA's new corporate 2013 video clip launched

ENISA's new corporate 2013 video clip launched | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
"Everything is connected"

 

ENISA has launched its new corporate video clip. This six-minutes movie describes the role of ENISA in a world where "everything is connected" both privately and professionaly. Communication technology  connects us to family, friends, banks, and other private and e-government services we all rely on. But the Internet is under constant threat, from crime, attacks and accidents. Spamhaus, Stuxnet, Flamer, High Roller  to name a few of the sophisticated cyber-attacks that took place the last 3 years.

 

It is the European Union Agency ENISA’s job to work with prevention at EU levels in the field of cyber security. ENISA is working with governments, regulators and industry to assess risks and identify practical solutions to keep business, citizens and economy secure.

 

This way, we support the smooth functioning of Europe’s internal market.
