Sunday morning links

Published by at 10:14 am under General

Here’s a few stories that caught my attention in the last 48 hours. 

  • Hackers cut cities’ power – So much for the invulnerability of the SCADA systems.  If it can happen in other countries, it can happen in the US.  There might be a bit more effort involved, but it can happen.  Chris was nice enough not to include a direct “I told you so”, but he’s obviously pleased to be proven right.  Why did I ever think our SCADA network would be any more secure than the rest of the Internet?
  • Dangers of remote Javascript – O’reilly learns that even if your own site is perfectly legitimate, if you rely on the code of others it can cause problems.  An advertiser let their domain name lapse and a porn company picked the domain to redirect traffic to their own sites.  Not a terribly sophisticated hack, but effective.
  • Cyber unit pivotal in solving crime online and off – I haven’t listened to this yet, but it’s the first of a four part series on cybercrime.  This could be another tool to use in your own companies awareness plan.  NPR usually does a pretty good job of passing along information without dumbing it down too much.
