In today’s world it is highly impossible for any kind of business to function without the assistance of technology. Any company that relies on digital data and computer networks have exposure to a host of varying Cyber Attacks. As technology continues to evolve, cyber security breaches become even more difficult to solve. The cybersecurity world rightly believes in the maxim – It’s not if, it’s when!
Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System". Defect Tracking Systems allow individual or groups of developers to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively. Most commercial defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features its expensive counterparts lack. Consequently, Bugzilla has quickly become a favorite of thousands of organizations across the
Heartbleed is a name that security researchers have given to a serious bug found in a very common piece of software used by many websites. The software name was OpenSSL which is used to encrypt the information that we send to and from websites. Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL allowed attackers to get sensitive data i.e. user’s authentication credentials (login name, password) and secret keys through incorrect memory handling in TLS (Transport layer security) heartbeat extension.
A Virus is a piece of malicious code that has the intent to damage your system.
Before going on to how does the heartbleed work, let's take a quick glance on how TLS/OpenSSL. Heartbeat request is one the most part of TLS/OpenSSL protocols, that is used in communication of two computers to know whether they are connected even if user isn't active at the moment.
My selected topic for this discussion is, bed bugs. Recently, I have seen 5 different cases in less than month in regards to bed bugs. Our clinical staff is well trained and adheres to the policies when we have bed bug patients. The two websites I listed below gave multiple research avenues of current and previous studies of bed bugs.
The Boll Weevil is a beetle. A drought is when an area has no rainfall for a long period of time. The Boll Weevil feeds on flowers and lay eggs in the flower buds of cotton. The Boll Weevil came from Mexico to Georgia to destroy the cotton plantation in the 1890s. A Drought came in Georgia and caused destruction on the crops also. Since the crops and cotton were destroyed, farmers could not pay people to pick them. So, many people lost jobs, and banks that loaned money to farms took huge L’s. Also, most working farms fell. The Boll Weevil and the Drought destroyed Georgia’s farms and its crops, including cotton. Since the cotton was gone, the Boll Weevil
Bed bugs and their eggs are surprisingly resilient in spite of their small size, which means it takes much more effort to rid your home of them than it does to get rid of other small pests. While resilient, thankfully pest control companies have been mastering their bed bug removal techniques over the years, and they have a couple of great techniques that work well against these tiny intruders. There are also new remedies being researched that you may be able to look forward to in the future in case the tiny bugs ever hitchhike their way back into your home on your clothing or a new-to-you piece of used furniture. Read on to find out how to get rid of them now and some interesting studies going on in the fight against bed bugs.
Vulnerable eventually gotten from the Latin word vulnus ("wound"). "Vulnerable" initially signified "capable for being physically injured" or "having the ability to wound", yet since the late 1600s, it has additionally been utilized metaphorically to propose a lack of protection against non-physical assaults.
Viruses can do many different things to a body, they can destroy, corrupt, and take over cells in the body. They can damage parts of the body or make your body destroy itself, viruses are dangerous but sometimes can be cured. Viruses do not have the enzymes needed to carry out life so
A data breach is an incident in which sensitive, protected or confidential data has potentially been viewed, stolen or used by an individual unauthorized to do so. Data breaches may involve personal health information (PHI), personally identifiable information (PII), trade secrets or intellectual property. The most common concept of a data breach is an attacker hacking into a corporate network to steal sensitive data. However, not all data breaches are so dramatic. If an unauthorized hospital employee views a patient's health information on a computer screen over the shoulder of an authorized employee that also constitutes a data breach.
In the last decade it’s amazing how technology has advanced over the years and will continue to advance for many years to come. Every year there is a new cell phone from Apple or Samsung, with new features that make our lives more convenient. From faster software to higher picture quality and so on. I am unable to recall the last time I used a camera to take pictures or went to the bank to deposit a check. Technology advances every day and many can’t wait to see what’s next to come. But with new technology comes greater risk for violations of privacy. In the following research paper I will discuss the types of security breaches and the cost associated with these breaches that businesses around the world face on a daily basis.
E-mailed Viruses are harder to avoid. Opening an attached file can trigger them or by touching the message that contains the attached file and then the file menu bar of the E-mail program. (Email Hole Exposes Computers) The seconded way to start a virus is because of a hole in Netscape’s mail program and also MS’s Outlook. A new way for Viruses to be spread by E-mail is to put the whole code for the virus in the subject line that way when the computer read the subject line it unwittingly activated the virus. The newest way for people to get viruses is through the web pages. This is done by putting the virus code into a script on the web page, now when the page is accessed the viruses executes the viruses code. (Virus Thrives on HTML) This can make a virus very prolific if a lot of people visit the web page.
Many types of computer virus has been spreading in computers since 1960. The first a computer virus discovered in 1970 and called The Creeper virus on Arpanet browser (anon, 2013)
There are special viruses that creates different types of malicious problems on a network or computer, for instance it will create or open programs to perform tasks. Viruses is also used for denial of service attacks, password cracking and many more. This can be fought against by having a reliable protection service; it is safer if this is taken from the provider itself.
