"Proxyham is made of a Raspberry Pi computer with a Wi-Fi card, connected to three antennas, a Wi-Fi one that connects to the internet at a public space (think Starbucks or a public library) and a dual antenna that transmits at 900MHz, this is used to communicate and beam data back and forth with the user, who can be as far as 2.5 miles from the device ...

[Benjamin] Caudill will showcase the Proxyham at the Def Con hacker conference in Las Vegas in August, where he will also release the source code, the blueprint, and hardware specs so anyone can create their own. He also plans to sell it 'at cost' for $200, 'as a service to the community.' (He hopes he will be able to drop the price to $150 eventually).

[They] are also working on additional features to add to Proxyham. One is a self-destruct function if the device is found and tampered with. Another is a system to record and send the audio of the last few seconds before the destruction to the user. This would be a sort of digital black box that could help figure out what went wrong and who might be after the Proxyham user.

For the future, Caudill and his colleagues are also working to fit Proxyham into other objects, such as a book, to make it easier to hide."

Proxyham is designed to give whistleblowers and dissidents an extra layer of protection when connecting to the internet.

"I'm talkin' about friendship. I'm talkin' about character. I'm talkin' about -- hell, Leo, I ain't embarrassed to use the word -- I'm talkin' about ethics." -Johnny Caspar, Miller's Crossing
Security professionals can sometimes find themselves caught up in dilemmas. On one hand processes and procedures are put in place to ensure the security of systems whilst maintaining accountability - these very same principles can become barriers at times when getting the job done is imperative. It can put a professional in a tough spot where adhering to the principles and ethics of information security is desired - but these princples can be ov...

If your org cannot afford hardware upgrades it may be worth considering that most desktop Linux distros run just fine on older hardware -- add LibreOffice to the mix and Bob's your uncle.

it's still in beta tech preview but it looks worth checking out. Microsoft continues to surprise me with their proactive security efforts. #security #microsoft

the plot thickens... #infosec   #security   #malware   #apt  
The Russian IT security firm Kaspersky Lab has discovered a new, powerful cyber weapon, apparently a successor to the notorious Duqu software. But this time the virus hunter itself is a target. Now experts are scrambling to identify who's behind it.
