Optimism... or Special Interests?

October 31, 2012 Added by:Jayson Wylie

There seems to be some political purpose to the current interests around Kaspersky. They are becoming involved in investigating malware of a cyber weapon nature instead of the constant pursuit of Trojan variants and financial fraud that is more damaging to the masses originating around their home office...

Is an International Cyber Regulatory Agency Needed?

August 30, 2012 Added by:Richard Stiennon

An international treaty and regulatory body will not gain much traction in the military academies and think tanks around the world. Why restrict a nation’s options in war fighting – especially when cyber weapons are inexpensive and could reduce the overall level of force required to achieve an end goal?

Giving Aid and Comfort to the Enemy

August 16, 2012 Added by:

Why do the likes of McAfee, Symantec, TrendMicro, Microsoft and Bitdefender publish reverse engineering code examples and analysis on cyber espionage and sabotage tools which serve to delay, disrupt, deny, and deceive our enemies from developing nuclear weapons. This is giving aid and comfort to the enemy...

State Sponsored Malware Takes Over Mars Rover

August 10, 2012 Added by:J. Oquendo

Many companies will omit many details and shift-slash-skew agendas to meet their concerns. Those concerns will ALWAYS be financial ones. At this point it is obvious that they and only they are capable of detecting the unseen, unheard of, undetectable, uberfilthware capable of infecting curiousity on Mars...

ZitMo Trojan Lurks in Android Security Suite Premium App

June 19, 2012 Added by:Headlines

"One of the remote server domains was registered using the same fake data which was used for registering ZeuS C&Cs back in 2011. And the malware’s functionality is almost the same as in old ZitMo samples. Therefore ‘Android Security Suite Premium’ = New ZitMo"...

Researchers: Flame Malware Shares Stuxnet Virus Module

June 11, 2012 Added by:Headlines

"Despite the fact that Stuxnet has been the subject of in-depth analysis... the mysterious 'resource 207' from 2009 has gone largely unnoticed. But it turns out that this is the missing link between Flame and Stuxnet... Clearly, these two pieces of exploit code were written by the same programmer..."

Kaspersky's Problematic Flame Analysis

May 29, 2012 Added by:Jeffrey Carr

I'm beginning to wonder what's going on over at Kaspersky Labs. Kaspersky Labs has called a virus whose only purpose is to steal data a "cyber weapon". Come on, guys. Espionage is not warfare and never has been. Hence a tool created solely to conduct cyber espionage cannot also be legitimately called a cyber weapon...

Flame: Another Holiday, Another Super Virus

May 29, 2012 Added by:Kevin McAleavey

Flame is huge - 20 modules and 20 megabytes. Strange that the infector is an ActiveX control in the form of an OCX (OLE Control Extensions) file which apparently has run completely undetected for years. The worm runs as a Windows service, and most of the files are visible, making this even more of a surprise...

Flame Trojan Ignites Cyberwar Chatter

May 29, 2012 Added by:Headlines

"Flame shares many characteristics with notorious cyber weapons Duqu and Stuxnet: while its features are different, the geography and careful targeting of attacks coupled with the usage of specific software vulnerabilities seems to put it alongside those familiar super-weapons currently deployed in the Middle East.."

Kaspersky Warns of Critical Infrastructure Vulnerabilities

May 18, 2012 Added by:Headlines

“It’s not possible to protect. Stuxnet told us that modern systems are not protected... SCADA could be very easy victims – the result of an attack could be like Stuxnet but everywhere... [We] need to understand the danger of cyber-weapons and of cyber-war to ruin national infrastructure..."

Malware Variant Signed with Valid Digital Certificate

March 16, 2012 Added by:Headlines

Kaspersky has discovered malware in the wild identified as Trojan.Win32.Mediyes accompanied by a VeriSign digital certificate which appears to be part of a click-fraud operation designed to generate revenues for the attackers from a legitimate marketing service...

Duqu Malware Authors Display Sense of Humor

November 14, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"This is another prank pulled by the Duqu authors, since Showtime Inc. is the cable broadcasting company behind the TV series Dexter, about a CSI doctor who happens also to be a serial killer who avenges criminals in some post-modern perversion of Charles Bronson’s character in Death Wish..."

Duqu and Stars: Proceed with Caution

November 06, 2011 Added by:Robert M. Lee

To state that Duqu and Stars are related based off undisclosed evidence is unfounded. Stars struck Iran in April and we know Duqu had a variant existing in April. However, the Kaspersky report does not state whether the variant of Duqu was discovered on one of the Iranian targets...

Kaspersky Warns of Threat from Cyber Terrorism

November 02, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"I don't want to speak about it. I don't even want to think about it. But we are close, very close, to cyber terrorism. Perhaps already the criminals have sold their skills to the terrorists - and then... oh, God," said Kaspersky...
