Keeping your portable data "secure"
I recently attended the Info Security Europe conference held at Olympia, London. It was a huge three-day event (although I only went on the first day) with a number of high profile security, anti-virus and other related companies trade stands. Not only that...

Just one more reason why I don't like Android phones.
Today we unveil two papers describing serious and widespread vulnerabilities in Android mobile phones. The first presents a Security Analysis of Factory Resets. Now that hundreds of millions of people buy and sell smartphones secondhand and use them for everything from banking to dating, ...

Keeping Terry Pratchett alive
In Terry Pratchett's novel "Going Postal", anybody who dies in the service of the Clacks is kept alive by their name being transmitted over the wires.  "A man is not dead while his name is still spoken," as one character puts it. There has been a discussion...

I attended InfoSecEurope on Tuesday. I was rather impressed with the +iStorage bootable USB sticks. So I bought one. However when I tried using YUMI on it, the drive apparently "broke" somehow.

Now that, Boys and Girls, is exactly how you should be doing Customer Service.

Want some eye-candy for your screen? Try the +Kaspersky Lab Cyberthreat interactive map. It certainly makes you realise just how insecure most people are on the web.
