Linus Torvalds created Linux, the operating system that dominates the online world. But a rift exists between Torvalds and security experts.

Enterprise security teams are charged with maintaining the “perfect” set of security policies. In their pursuit of the perfect security policy, they are often the department of slow (because the pursuit of perfection takes time)

Italian-Style Braised Chard with Tomatoes

Since chard is so beloved in Italy and other parts of the Mediterranean, it’s only fitting to combine it with tomatoes, basil, and other flavorings typical of the region’s cuisines. Substitute other greens in this dish, or combine a couple of varieties — kale, collards, escarole, broccoli rabe all would work well with this treatment.

Dyre banking Trojan infections more than doubled

Online banking has been in cybercriminals sights for a long time. Crooks wielding the Dyre/Dyreza banking Trojan continue spewing out spam emails delivering new and ever changing variants of the malware.

"There has been a 125% increase of Dyre-related infections worldwide this quarter compared to the last," Trend Micro researchers have noted. "Roughly 7 in 10 users infected during the last three months came from the European (39% of the total count) and North American (38%) regions. Asia Pacific came in third, with 19% of the infections."

In early May, there was a considerable spike in these spam emails targeting the APAC region.

"We looked closely at the financial institutions whose URLs were contained in the Dyre malware samples. We noted URLs associated with several multinational banks, including their varied country branches, divisions, and the like," the researchers shared.

As before, Dyre is not delivered directly via email. Instead, the malicious attachments hold the Upatre downloader, which then downloads Dyre. Upatre also got updated, and this newer versions have the ability to disable firewall/network related security by modifying some registry entries and via stoppage of related services, and to disable Windows' default anti-malware feature (Windows Defender).

The emails delivering the malware try to scare users into opening the attached file by claiming that the recipients' tax payments have doubled. 

So far, they have been mostly in English, but Trend Micro expects location based  messages in the near future, as the attackers are looking to expand globally.

Mixed Bean and Pea Garden Burger

This burger is called a “garden burger” because it is made of lots of green veggies like peas, spinach and herbs. Also it has a nice speckled marbled effect with the greens :) it is also my first vegan AND gluten free burger! Usually I use eggs and breadcrumbs to bind the burgers but this time I simply used some rice flour and it worked perfectly. It did create a firmer texture throughout the burger which I liked but just be careful not to add too much flour.

When you buy a smartphone from an unknown manufacturer, be wary of what it might contain.

Introduction
Complete utter techhead, writer and a whole lot of other things.

Free and critical thinker, secular humanist and  agnostic atheist. Love the way nature works, it's our habitat and what keeps us alive.

As a critical thinker, I like posts that make me reconsider my position on the world and the way  it works. More so, if they are engaging and encourage discussion.

My interests include technology, gadgets, mobility, writing, reading, humanism, humanitarianism, and anything that happens to catch my fancy at any given moment.

Circles I might fit into:
