Microsofts Bing says Denny Hamlin will win Daytona 500 -- do you agree, Nascar fans?

24 February, by Brian Fagioli[ —]
This weekend is the Daytona 500. I won't be watching. While I absolutely love cars, Nascar has never been my thing. Race cars going in a circle? Meh. Daytona USA for Sega Saturn is one of my favorite games of all time, however, but I digress. Even though Nascar isn't for everyone, it is still very popular with many. Not only do people like to watch the event as spectators, but some folks like to gamble on it too. If you are planning to put some money on the race, Microsoft may have some useful information for you. The company's Bing… [Continue Reading]

24 February, by Sead Fadilpašić[ —]

Employees who embrace BYOD feel judged

24 February, by Sead Fadilpašić[ —]
There is a strange side-effect to the Bring Your Own Device initiative, and one that's slowing it down. Apparently, many employees refrain from bringing their own devices to work for the fear of being judged. No, not because their devices are old or slow, but because others will think they're using them for personal instead of professional reasons. Yes, that's a real fear, and it's quite prevalent. According to Nudge Rewards just 40 percent of employees feel trust is not an issue when using BYOD. Just a quarter (23 percent) say they are actively encouraged to use mobile devices in the workplace. A third… [Continue Reading]

Cloudbleed: Cloudflare leaks sensitive data, many major websites affected

24 February, by Mihăiță Bamburic[ —]
Security researchers from Google's Project Zero have uncovered a critical bug in Cloudflare which allowed sensitive data -- like passwords, cookies and encryption keys -- from many hosted websites to leak online. Patreon, Y Combinator, Medium, 4chan, Yelp, OKCupid, Zendesk, Uber and 23and Me are among the most-important affected websites. This security issue is so important that it is now being referred to as cloudbleed. The bug, which was discovered on February 17 according to Project Zero's Tavis Ormandy and is now fixed, has caused the most damage between February 13 and February 18, according to Cloudflare, when about one in every 3,300,000 HTTP requests caused data to leak.… [Continue Reading]

24 February, by Mihăiță Bamburic[ —]

New DDoS capabilities uncovered in Necurs botnet

24 February, by Ian Barker[ —]
The Necurs botnet is one of the largest around at the moment and is principally known for sending spam including the Locky ransomware. However, new research from BitSight's Anubis Labs has uncovered a new component being loaded in infected systems that allows it to use bots to enable proxy communications and perform DDoS attacks. The module has a compilation date in August 2016, although there's no evidence that these new capabilities have yet been used in anger. A botnet the size of Necurs, if used for DDoS attacks, is likely to cause severe disruption wherever it hits, being very capable of… [Continue Reading]
