Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act will expire on June 1, 2015, unless congress extends it. It is important to note that this is NOT the entire USA Patriot Act as many politicians have claimed with their fearmongering. Section 215 needs to expire if we want to protect our privacy rights, and to support international business growth; our national security will not be diminished as a result.
Rebecca Herold discusses why the bulk collection of phone metadata at best yields little benefit and at worst harms people's security and privacy.

Once again, warnings are being given that internet users may not realise just how much personal information they are sharing with others online – and this time it’s about where you spend your life working, playing and sleeping.

Earlier this month, several media outlets ran a story claiming that a new type of malware could be used to destroy victims’ computers. These stories might have fared well in views, but their fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) have proven useful to no one. Fortunately, a number of security experts including Graham Cluley were quick to correct the false impressions these articles created, allowing us to explore the threat, known as ‘Rombertik,’ in earnest.
Tripwire scrutinizes Rombertik by exploring how it implements each of the four most common evasive techniques used by malware.

It’s been a tough few weeks for those of us that are responsible for patching vulnerabilities in the companies we work at. Not only do we have the usual operating system and application patches, we also have patches for VENOM and Logjam to contend with. 
Security professionals should adopt a risk-based approach to implementing patches when it comes to vulnerability management.

Debit and credit card transactions are part of our daily lives. Very few people use cash nowadays as it is way more convenient to use a payment card for a purchase. Most of these transactions are performed through a standalone Point-of-Sale (POS) device, an Electronic Cash Registry (ECR) or through a Virtual Terminal (VT).
Dr. Grigorios Fragkos discusses his upcoming talk at BSides London, which will focus on PCI and POS device transactions.
