ICANN proposes websites associated to "commercial activity" will no longer be able to use WHOIS protection services. Under new guidelines proposed by MarkMonitor and others who represent the same industries that backed SOPA, domain holders with sites associated to "commercial activity" will no longer be able to protect their private information with WHOIS protection services. "Commercial activity" casts a wide net, which means that a vast number of domain holders will be affected. Your privacy provider could be forced to publish your contact data in WHOIS or even give it out to anyone who complains about your website, without due process. Why should a small business owner have to publicize her home address just to have a website? We think your privacy should be protected, regardless of whether your website is personal or commercial, and your confidential info should not be revealed without due process. If you agree, it’s time to tell ICANN. To view the new proposed rules, visit: Privacy & Proxy Services Accreditation Issues Policy. Source: https://www.respectourprivacy.com/

Talk about determination. Hackers strung together zero-day vulnerabilities in Flash and Internet Explorer and then compromised Forbes.com so that the attacks would compromise financial services and defense contractor employees visiting the site, researchers said. The November breach of Forbes compromised the Thought of the Day page that is displayed briefly upon visiting the site. The page downloaded attack code exploiting a vulnerability in what then was a fully updated version of Adobe Flash. To bypass Address Space Layout Randomization—a mechanism built into Flash and many other applications to make drive-by attacks harder—the Forbes page downloaded a second attack. The latter attack exploited a then-zero-day vulnerability in IE that allowed the Flash exploit to successfully pierce the exploit mitigation defense. From start to finish, the attack took about seven seconds. "In the world of cyber threats, the chained 0-day exploit is a unicorn—the best known attack with chained 0-days was the Stuxnet attack allegedly perpetrated by US and Israeli intelligence agencies against Iran's nuclear enrichment plant at Natanz as part of an operation known as Olympic Games," a blog post detailing the attack explained. "Given the highly trafficked Forbes.com website, the exploit could have been used to infect massive numbers of visitors." Instead, only visitors from US Defense and financial services firms were hacked. Adobe patched the Flash vulnerability, designated as CVE-2014-9163, in early November. Microsoft fixed CVE-2015-0071 on Tuesday. The Forbes.com compromise is believed to have started in late November and lasted for a few days. The incident, which was uncovered by researchers from security firms Invincea and iSIGHT Partners, underscores the ingenuity and determination of today's hackers. Any one of the key ingredients of the hack—the Flash bug, the IE flaw, or the compromise of Forbes.com—wasn't enough to penetrate the defenses of defense contractors or financial services firms. But by stringing them together, the attackers were able to achieve their goals. It also helps explain why even minor software flaws that don't by themselves allow for remote code execution—for instance an escalation of privilege bug or a disclosure flaw—nonetheless pose a significant threat to end users.

Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose sole purpose is to securely host a Tor server purely in RAM. For those not familiar with Tor, it is a system which allows the user to construct encrypted virtual tunnels which are randomly relayed between Tor servers (nodes) until the connection finally exits to its destination on the internet. The encryption and random relaying resist traffic analysis in that a malicious sniffer cannot easily discover where the traffic is coming from or what data it contains. While not perfect in its efforts to provide users with anonymity, Tor does help protect against unscrupulous companies, individuals or agencies from "watching us". For more information, see the Tor official site. The usefulness of a RAM only environment for Tor became apparent to me when Janssen was arrested by the German police towards the end of July, 2007. (You can read the full story in a CNET article.) While the police did not seize the computer for whatever reasons, they certainly could have. More typically, it would have been taken for forensic analysis of the data on the drives. Of course, if the computer housing the Tor server has no drives, there can be no question that it is purely a network relaying device and that one should look elsewhere for the "goods". Other advantages became clear: It is useful to operators that want all traces of the server to disappear on powerdown. This includes the private SSL keys which can be housed externally. The environment can be hardened in a manner specific to the limited needs of Tor. It has the usual speed advantages of diskless systems and can run on older hardware. The only known disadvantage is that it cannot host Tor hidden services which would require other services (e.g. http), and their resources (e.g. hard drive space), in addition to the Tor server itself. However, as a middle or exit node, it is ideal. Download Read more: Tor-ramdisk | opensource.dyc.edu
