"Cloud computing has quickly evolved from a hot industry buzz word into a multi-billion dollar emerging market, with all the big names striving to grab a piece of the pie. Amazon, with its Amazon Elastic Computer Cloud (EC2), is arguably the dominant leader of the cloud services market."

For as much as Mac OS X has a reputation for being safer than Windows, security researchers won’t hesitate to point out that the opposite is, in fact, true. Indeed, the primary reason why the Mac has been relatively immune from security threats often found on Windows is because the Mac’s relatively paltry market share makes it an unattractive target for malicious hackers.

Getting to ShmooCon each year is always challenging (as is trying to get home). Mother Nature seems to enjoy disrupting the travel to and from the conference, which is held in Washington, D.C in January or February of each year. Despite the weather issues, I've always found it to be a conference worth attending.
As we mentioned yesterday, we have discovered that sourceforge.net was attacked and several servers were compromised.
Every year the Web security community produces a stunning amount of new hacking techniques published in various white papers, blog posts, magazine articles, mailing list emails, etc. Within the thousands of pages are the latest ways to attack websites, Web browsers, Web proxies, and so on. Beyond individual vulnerability instances with CVE numbers or system compromises, we're talking about actual new and creative methods of Web-based attack.
"The vulnerability occurs when the FTP server attempts to encode Telnet IAC (Interpret As Command) character in the FTP response. "
"From a computer virus named for a stripper to swarming botnet attacks on the Pentagon and Microsoft, The Daily Beast lists the 10 most infamous hacks, worms, and DDoS takedowns in the last 25 years."
"Last week I presented my research about “Adding ASLR to jailbroken iPhones” at the Power of Community 2010 (POC2010) security conference in Seoul. During my talk I explained how one can use a modified ‘rebase’ utility to rebase the dynamic linker dyld on the iPhone. Rebasing dyld is important because it contains enough code gadgets that can be used to kickstart arbitrary shellcode on jailbroken iPhones. A tool called Antid0te will be released until the end of this year that allows normal users to add ASLR to their iPhones."
"Exploit code for the vulnerability has been added to the Metasploit tool and a video has been posted to provide a demo of the severity."
