Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 will battle malware with cognitive computing, courtesy of Smart Protect

Qualcomm is certainly working hard on its Snapdragon 820 chipset, a chip that will have to wash away all the bad surrounding the Snapdragon 810. We already seem to know a lot about the SD820: Kryo architecture, allowing for a maximum clock of up to 3GHz per core, 14nm manufacturing process, an Adreno 530 GPU, and integrated LTE Cat 10 modem, or so rumors say. 
Yet, there is a host of features and functionalities that we still don’t beans about. Qualcomm is fortunately willing to share a lot about its upcoming chipset (all about the official specs, though). …

Chaos Communication Camp: Cyber pirates gather in Berlin for smart drugs, virtual sex, and the fight against global mass surveillance

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Quite how I ended up in a marquee an hour north of Berlin being sketched, stark b*****k naked, by some of the world’s leading digital activists and hackers is not entirely clear. There was a party at a London embassy, a drunken promise to help with an art project at “hacker Glastonbury”, and now, somehow, here I am, providing a little light entertainment before the campers get back to the important business of fighting the National Security Agency and teaching robots to mix cocktails. At the Chaos Communication Camp – the international hacking festival held in Germany every four years – almost anything can and indeed does happen. Organised by the Chaos Computer Club, the influential German hacker association founded in 1981, it has everything you might expect from a “normal” festival. Fantastical decorations, solicitous drug dealers and ear-splitting music abound. It’s the inter-tent Ethernet cables, low-flying drones, and workshops that cover everything from reverse-engineering sex toys, to hacking cars, to learning how to turn your own skull into a sound system that, by comparison, place all other parties somewhere in the Dark Ages. Preparing for CCC was a nerve-racking affair. “Assume that there will be many people at the […]

Are cyber threats the Achilles’ heel of the smart home?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The advent of smart home technology has forever changed the face of the residential alarm industry for the better. Not only are people more connected to their systems than ever before, but it has also breathed new life into the industry in the form of additional recurring revenue opportunities. In fact, a recent report from Research and Markets projects the smart home equipment and services market to grow at between eight to 10 percent year on year for the next five years, reaching an estimated $68 billion by 2018. However, as with any device that is connected to the internet today, home automation and security systems are vulnerable to myriad threats posed by hackers. There have already been several well-documented cases where people have tapped into connected home products, such as baby monitors and surveillance cameras. But what if instead of just scaring or looking in on people and their children, hackers could lock or unlock doors or change alarm settings? These are just a few of the things malicious actors could do if they were to find and exploit cyber vulnerabilities in connected home products. Craig Young, a security researcher for Tripwire, recently analyzed three of the top selling […]

Here’s How Kaspersky Aims To Solve The Cyber Security Challenges Of Smart Cities

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Narendra Modi’s concept of smart city may soon be redefining the living standards of people across the country. An ideal city enriched with niche of every possible thing is what it aims for. However, the notion being very topical, many organizations are working on intelligent solutions to make urban areas energy efficient, comfortable, environment-friendly, and physically safe. Unfortunately, far fewer are considering the cybersecurity of these smart cities. The more IT organizations involved in creating a smart city, the greater the potential risk. If security is not addressed early on, the cost and complexity of a smart city could make it difficult to address problems. In the end, the city would be left vulnerable. One such solution is provided by a new not-for-profit global initiative, Securing Smart Cities. As per the press statement, this venture is backed by leading IT security researchers, companies and organizations, including IOActive, Kaspersky Lab, Bastille, and the Cloud Security Alliance. The aim is to solve the cyber security challenges of smart cities through collaboration and information sharing. The group will serve as a communications node for companies, governments, media outlets, not-for-profit initiatives, and individuals across the world involved in the creation, improvement, and promotion of […]

Hackers to Target Smart TV Sets After Phones, Kaspersky Predicts

(Bloomberg) — Hackers are opening new horizons: having learned how to break into Apple Inc.’s iPhones they may target smart televisions next, according to cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab. “There are already Trojan viruses that can penetrate an iPhone when it’s connected to a computer,” founder and Chief Executive Officer Eugene Kaspersky said in an interview. “Smart TVs would be the next step.” In the future, hackers will be able to interfere with smart TVs — the latest generation of TVs that are connected to the Internet — and require users to send a paid text message to get them unlocked, Kaspersky predicts. Criminals may also seek to steal money from online movie accounts or use the TV’s camera to record what users are doing, he said. Hackers are boosting attacks on targets ranging from corporate computer networks to individual smartphones for data that could help steal money from user accounts. Those attacks are extending from Microsoft Corp.’s Windows-run computers and Google Inc.’s Android-based smartphones to platforms including Apple’s iOS. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment. Kaspersky Lab’s Russian business may slow this year as some companies switch to pirated software, while others may go out of business amid the economic […]
