Following the news that the Blu-ray Disc (BD) format could be a new target zone for hackers according to a keynote talk at the Securi-Tay conference http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/03/02/bad_movie_hackers_can_raid_networks_with_burnt_blurays/ Tim Erlin, director of security and risk, Tripwire and Troy Gill, manager security research, AppRiver explain how this works and how to avoid the threat:

In response to the news around the FREAK flaw, which, for more than a decade, left users of Apple and Google devices vulnerable to hacking when they visited millions of supposedly secure web sites, Phil Lieberman, CEO of Lieberman Software Corporation writes:

DEFENCE Secretary Michael Fallon has met key ministers in Saudi Arabia and Oman to discuss regional security and international action to counter ISIL during a tour of the Middle East.

London: BackupVault has recently released a valuable new service which will provide backup to the Schools Information Management System (SIMS) databases of schools across the country. The Capita SIMS system is used by over 90% of schools in the UK, and BackupVault will be assisting in the process of backing up this hugely valuable and sensitive raft of information.

The Government Accountability, a government watchdog agency, is reporting significant security control weaknesses in the Air Traffic Control System even though the Federal Aviation Administration has taken steps to protect the air traffic system from cyber-based threats. One of the biggest challenges is the ability to prevent and detect unauthorized access to the vast network of computer and communications systems the FAA uses to process and track flights around the world. They have also pointed out inadequate protections to prevent entry into air traffic computer systems from other, less-secure computer systems not directly involved in traffic operations.

ChrisThe Door & Hardware Federation Powered Gate Group has confirmed its position as the UK's leading authority on powered gate safety following its publication of more safety guides.

LONDON: ESET has conducted a survey on social media of smartphone usage ahead of the Mobile World Congress with interesting conclusions: almost ten percent of surveyed users had their phone lost or stolen in the last 12 months, slightly more than 29 percent does not lock their smartphone, and almost 20 percent does not backup content of their smartphone at all.
