Interesting Find #25
Continuing the Interesting Find series. Here are the things I was intrigued by:
- “Honey Encryption” – A new approach to encryption beats attackers by presenting them with fake data.
- Securing the Smart Home, from Toasters to Toilets – It is afterall the era of BigData and Internet of Things (IoT).
- Bizarre attack infects Linksys routers with self-replicating malware.
- Bing Code Search for C# – right from within Visual Studio – a boon for the lazy developers (yay!). Better beef up your Legal teams as well – how will one control IP violations at the code level – not quite sure.
- Visualisation of data is not only about ‘prettying up’ your BI reports, but it can actually also save lifes!
- Oakland the city that told Google to bugger away! Is this the start of a revolt?
- If you shop at Tesco.com and also have a Clubcard then you were aware that they were hacked? What is hilarious, and, very poor the way they handled this and the lack of understanding. Want to see a glimpse of that? See this Twitter conversation.
- You like Pineapples? You can eat one; and you can also use one to break website security – very easily! Scary stuff.
- Microsoft MS-DOS/Word Source Code Gems – just awesome comments!
- Raspberry Pi car computer – enough said!
- Absolutely fascinating! Most Sophisticated #Android bootkit malware ever detected; Infected Millions #Security
