Bloomberg has stood firm on its controversial story from two years ago asserting that China implanted a tiny chip on motherboards made by Supermicro. But rather than proving its contention in a follow-up, it may have inflicted more reputational damage upon itself.
More than 1,000 developers likely worked on rewriting code for the massive SolarWinds supply chain attack that affected many companies and U.S. government agencies, Microsoft President Brad Smith said in a Sunday interview, pointing out the attack is most likely continuing.
Finding, triaging and investigating cyberthreats has never been more time-consuming, difficult or important for enterprises.
This white paper provides a detailed description of Cysiv’s modern, data science-driven approach to more quickly, effectively and efficiently detecting and investigating cyber threats, and...
In order to detect actionable threats, organizations must collect, continuously monitor, query and analyze a massive volume of security telemetry and other relevant data for indicators of compromise (IOCs), indicators of attacks (IOAs) and other threats.
Doing this at scale, 24/7, across a hybrid cloud environment,...
Researchers at the security firm Netlab have identified a previously undocumented botnet dubbed "Matryosh" that is targeting vulnerable Android devices to help build its network so it can conduct distributed denial-of-service attacks.
