Throwback Thursday: Research and Other Hobbies

This Throwback Thursday we reflect on the life of one of industry's greats, who sadly passed away this week: Prof. Klaus Brunnstein. Professor Klaus Brunnstein was one of the biggest names in anti-virus resarch, a pioneer in the field, and a man whose career was never short of either controversy or success. We were greatly saddened to learn of his death yesterday, and in honour of a man who contributed so much to the industry, we decided to take another look at an interview with Prof...

Weak keys and prime reuse make Diffie-Hellman implementations vulnerable

'Logjam' attack possibly used by the NSA to decrypt VPN traffic. A group of researchers have discovered a number of vulnerabilities in the way the Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol is deployed and have demonstrated an attack (dubbed 'Logjam') that exploits these vulnerabilities. Diffie-Hellman is used by two entities (typically referred to as Alice and Bob) to agree on a secret key over a public channel. This key can then be used to encrypt and decrypt data using a much faster...

Throwback Thursday: Double Trouble / The Perfect Couple

Once again this Throwback Thursday, we bring you not one but two (related) pieces from the archives as VB heads back to the mid-90s when a new era of viruses was believed to be dawning. In general, the experts of the anti-malware industry get things more or less right. Predictions may take longer to come to fruition than expected, or may not be quite as game-changing as expected, but by and large, the experts in this industry have a good feel for the way things will go — whether a new...

Book review: The Florentine Deception, by Carey Nachenberg

John Hawes reviews Carey Nachenberg's debut novel. There's a rather serious problem with fiction involving computers, and computer security in particular. It seems like any time a computer appears in a work of fiction, especially in a Hollywood movie or a TV show, any attempt to adhere to reality goes out the window. The ubiquitous super-hacker of fiction can break in anywhere he or she wants, within minutes, with no research or preparation, and quite often using only a phone or a...

Book review: Data and Goliath, by Bruce Schneier

Paul Baccas reviews Data and Goliath 'The Hidden Battles to Collect You Data and Control Your World', by Bruce Schneier. This book has been difficult to review. It has proved tricky not because I didn't enjoy the book or because it was boring or badly written, but because it was so pertinent. Every time I went to write about it, a news story would emerge referencing the subject and I would find that my opinions of the news were influenced by the book and my opinions of the book were...
