So the #seed used to generate every password is the current system time, in seconds. It means every instance of Kaspersky Password Manager in the world will generate the exact same password at a given second.
On June 22nd, a user of a popular #hacker advertised data from 700 Million LinkedIn users for sale. The user of the forum posted up a sample of the data that includes 1 million LinkedIn users. We examined the sample and found it to contain the following information:
The user claims that the complete #database contains the personal #information of 700 Million LinkedIn users.

Just the mention of the word "Jupiter" was enough to set alarm bells ringing in the Fed's automated computer systems.
A representative for the hackers told Motherboard in an online chat that the process started by purchasing stolen cookies being sold online for $10 and using those to gain access to a Slack channel used by EA....
The hackers then requested a multifactor #authentication token from EA IT support to gain access to EA's corporate #network. The representative said this was successful two times.more here: https://www.vice.com/en/article/7kvkqb/how-ea-games-was-hacked-slack
Once inside EA's network, the hackers found a service for EA developers for compiling games. They successfully logged in and created a virtual machine giving them more visibility into the network, and then accessed one more service and downloaded #game #source #code.
Der Bundestag hat heute den Einsatz von #Staatstrojaner.n ausgeweitet bzw. nachträglich legalisiert.
Weil dafür #Sicherheitslücken offen gehalten werden, macht das *alle* Computer unsicherer.
Und der #Richtervorbehalt ist in der Praxis sowieso unwirksam: https://digitalcourage.de/blog/2016/fakten-gegen-die-vorratsdatenspeicherung#richtervorbehalt
In a narrow interpretation of the law, the #court essentially interpreted the #CFAA as a prohibition on breaking into a #computer system, whether that's as an outside #hacker or as an authorized user breaking into some gated part of that system.Now remember the case of #AaronSchwartz.

Unfortunately, this will probably have no #consequences for the #prosecution.

#NortonLifeLock is now dangling a product that promises better #security and that it might eventually pay for itself. And not just pay for itself but also pay handsomely in the long run: the value of Ethereum has risen almost 1,000 percent in the past twelve months, and more than 10 per cent in the past 24 hours alone.#internet #news #fail #business #software #money #finance #miner #cryptocurrency
The focus of their anger concerns the pre-print of a #PHE report that included a page of data on the spread of the #India #Covid-19 variant in schools.

The move comes after a group of UMN researchers were caught submitting a series of malicious code commits, or #patches that deliberately introduced #security vulnerabilities in the official Linux #codebase, as a part of their #research activities.These days I often have the feeling that everyone is going #crazy and has reached the end of their intellectual capacity. :(
