Tired of zero day samples evading your analysis tools? Check out Binary Guard's service -- I just got my beta account for the free version of their service. #infosec #security #malware #cybersecurity  
True Bare Metal (TBMTM) Cloud Sandbox. Many automated malware analysis sandboxes exist on the market today, but they all suffer from the fundamental flaw of being based on virtualization or emulation. Because they differ from ordinary computers, malware can detect their presence and change their ...

thanks to the Windows Subsystem for Linux you can now write simple fork bombs in bash to tank Windows 10. :)

Posted on behalf of Nick Judge. Overview This post discusses pico processes, the foundation of WSL. It explains how pico processes work in Windows and goes into the history of how they came to be, the abstractions we decided to implement and the various use cases beyond WSL that emerged. Armed with this context, the...

I would rather invest money in my own hardware than in some fraudulent site that can't even be bothered to check their PR releases for proper spelling & grammar. Haven't you seen these offers in your inbox before, people? #bitcoin #cryptocurrency

I appreciate the technical breakdown as I've been using Interix before Microsoft bought them...
We recently announced Bash on Ubuntu on Windows which enables native Linux ELF64 binaries to run on Windows via the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). This subsystem was created by the Microsoft Windows Kernel team and has generated a lot of excitement. One of the most frequent question we get asked is how is this...

This is not that uncommon in the security industry -- vulnerabilities are bought & sold on the grey market all the time and nation states are the biggest buyers. The only reason this is different is because the case has had such a high profile in public awareness. #infosec   #security   #apple   #iphone  
The researchers came from an ethically murky corner of the hacking world.

"Related to encryption, I noticed an undocumented feature while playing around with diskutil (which prompts you for interactive confirmation of the destructive power of APFS unless this is added to the command-line: -IHaveBeenWarnedThatAPFSIsPreReleaseAndThatIMayLoseData; I’m not making this up). APFS (apparently) supports constant time cryptographic file system erase, called 'effaceable' in the diskutil output. This presumably builds a secret key that cannot be extracted from APFS and encrypts the file system with it. A secure erase then need only delete the key rather than needing to scramble and re-scramble the full disk to ensure total eradication. Various iOS docs refer to this capability requiring some specialized hardware; it will be interesting to see what the option means on macOS. Either way, let’s not mention this to the FBI or NSA, agreed?"

I'm building a new startup or starting a band named Pi in the SkyNet. We'll build fully buzzword compliant neural networks from LEGO style quanta. #security   #ai   #artificialintelligence   #infosec

the moral of the story; never trust an app named 'catwang.' #infosec #security
-*+Mobile Security Observations from the Check Point Research Team After its presentations about “SideStepper” and trends in mobile attacks in BlackHat Asia, the Check Point mobile research team wasn’t surprised to find that the trends it pointed out continue. Google Play has been infiltrated by malware yet again, and as our colleague Avi Bashan pointed …

I come from the land of tasty donuts so I recognize a gem when I taste it. I ordered a half dozen for my sweetheart & Ly gave me two extras so I didn't feel guilty eating a couple on my way to her.
