    When it comes to phishing attempts, anyone can be a target. The question is: How will the attackers try to fool users?  Phishers take a variety of approaches to fooling users into opening or responding to an email. But a recent survey by Agari, an email security company, shows which industries and companies are most at risk of being used as a lure by phishers. The top three industries most likely to be spoofed as a sender of a phishing attempt were: airlines large banks, and healthcare companies. Meanwhile, the three industries that were least likely to be imitated as a sender on phishing…

The flaw resulted from a former U.S. government policy that once forbid the export of strong encryption and required that weaker "export-grade" products be shipped to customers in other countries, say the researchers who discovered the problem.

First, people told me that there is a lot of great advanced content at Percona Live but there is not much for people just starting to learn the ropes with MySQL. Second, they would like us to find a way to make such basic content less expensive.I’m pleased to say we’re able to accommodate both of these wishes this year at Percona Live! We have created a two-day intensive track called “MySQL 101” that runs April 15-16. MySQL 101 is designed for developers, system administrators and DBAs familiar with other…
  • Improving Percona XtraDB Cluster SST startup with Google Compute Engine snapshots

    Nik Vyzas
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:36 am
    As the need for information grows so does the size of data we need to keep in our databases. SST is unavoidable for spinning up new nodes in a PXC cluster and when datasets reach the “terra-byte” range this becomes ever more cumbersome requiring many hours for a new node to synchronize.More often that not, it is necessary to implement custom “wsrep_sst” scripts or resort to manual synchronization processes. Luckily cloud providers provide convenient methods to leverage disk snapshots that can be used to quickly transfer data between nodes.This article deals with…

    The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights started a little tradition back in 2009: When a data breach affecting more than 500 people occurs in the healthcare industry, they make a tally on their “wall of shame.” The folks over at the Office for Civil Rights were reaching for the chalk pretty frequently in 2014, and many of the breaches they tallied involved well over 500 people.

    Eric Raisters

    Since the mid-1990s, SHA-1 digital certificates have been the standard used across the Internet to verify user and device identities. SHA-1 certificates have existed for years on nearly every server and client computing device, providing the foundation for trusted communications between user devices. But now, this fundamental trust relationship has changed. With recent advances in computing power, the bad guys have finally figured out how to weaken the SHA-1 hashing algorithm—which means that it can no longer be relied on as a standard. A breached SHA-1 certificate platform can lead to all…

    IT managers have long dealt with employees who don’t know or choose to ignore email policy. That’s as true at small and mid-size businesses as it is at the State Department, where it’s been revealed Hillary Clinton insisted on using her own email.  According to a New York Times report, Hillary Clinton was never given or used a State Department email address. Instead, she continued to use a personal email address. The problem, obviously, is that with a personal email account, preservation and discovery are much more difficult. And using a personal email doesn’t…

The top three industries most likely to be spoofed as a sender of a phishing attempt were: airlines large banks, and healthcare companies.

    This week, Facebook announced a new modular switch called the “6-pack,” which builds off of The Wedge (Facebook’s innovative piece of networking equipment announced last June.) The development of the “6-pack” comes on the heels of a relatively new white box movement within the networking industry where generic, off-the-shelf switching and routing hardware is used rather than custom-made infrastructure, making networks more manageable and easy to scale. Julie Bort covered this very topic earlier this week in her Cisco earnings roundup for Business Insider, and cited Plexxi as one…

  • Is Your RMM Tool Automating Against You?

    23 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am

    19 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
      (On a scale of one to five where one is least and five is the most effective) Obscurity : Effectiveness = 1 While effective security cannot be reliant on obscurity, obscurity itself is not harmful to the security of a system. Banks trust that their vaults are secure, yet that doesn’t mean they allow anyone to touch or see them. Follow common sense and don’t leave information about your security infrastructure or RMM login consoles on pages that are publically accessible or easily visible.

    16 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    Today is Presidents’ Day in the United States. It may seem like Presidents’ Day would have very little to do with IT security but, when you really consider it, the president is at the core of the government just like how a Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) system is at the core of most IT service providers. The parallels shouldn’t stop there though. Just as the president has his own protection, so too should your RMM system. It’s virtually impossible to get close to the president without consent. That’s because the Secret Service has such a security focused perspective.

Nearly 60 million customer email addresses and credit card data, supposedly protected by security software, were stolen.

    Wireless seems to be a no-brainer choice when it comes to choosing a network for your small business. Wireless access has become so common that many of us find ourselves a bit miffed when we’re “left stranded” without Wi-Fi. But when you’re a small business owner just starting out or thinking about re-configuring your network, the decision to choose wired or wireless networking is far from obvious. Wireless is often the default recommendation of business technology consultants because it’s perceived to be cost effective compared to wiring an entire facility and its workstations.

    Unfortunately for many businesses around the world, the need to use social media as part of an overall marketing strategy is undeniable. Why it’s unfortunate is that not only does a lot of the effort go unnoticed, a lot of that same effort is an elaborate cover up for a lot of time that is actually just being wasted. Employers sometimes makes concessions for their employees, excusing worrying signs of inactivity as a well deserved break, or the sign of a comfortable work environment. The question remains, though; how much is this wastage of time costing us? The folks over at TimeDoctor…

However, a report recently released by our friends over at recruiting software comparison site Software Advice  revealed that only 12% of job seekers like to be contacted via text message by recruiters, and that they never prefer a text over a phone call or email.

I ended up with maternity jeans, and I wasn’t pregnant. The problem was in how I was taking my measurements. I was several inches off around my waist and hips (apparently, I hadn’t placed the measuring tape exactly where I should have) and off by a mile when it came to measuring my “rise.” I thought it was the back of your waist to the front of your waist — hence the maternity jeans.

    Many small business owners have the impression that doing business with the local, state, or federal government is more trouble than it’s worth. Procurement officials are often seen as having a habit of awarding contracts to those with a proven track record, meaning only a select number of established companies can successfully win government contracts. Entrepreneurs complain that the government has a preferred list of vendors.
