Microsoft's Windows operating system is the target of a massive majority of the malicious software that abounds these days. And it has adopted the same strategy for avoiding blame as it did with the problem of viruses and worms: presenting itself as part of the solution, not the problem.
Russian security firm Kaspersky has published a blog post about the alleged threat to Linux from targeted attacks and so-called advanced persistent threats — code for state-based actors — that falls squarely into the category known as FUD.
Security outfit FireEye has renamed its expertise- and intelligence-backed offerings to its threat intelligence unit, Mandiant, raising the possibility that it may look to sell this unit, one which it acquired in 2013 for about US$1 billion.
Canadian security software and services firm Blackberry claims five attack groups serving the interests of China have been targeting Linux servers, Windows systems and Android devices for nearly 10 years, remaining undetected in the process.
Russian security outfit Kaspersky says it will continue to provide details of advanced persistent threats (APTs or nation-state actors) no matter the country of their origin, but these details will only be available to customers who subscribe to their services.
Russian security outfit Kaspersky, formerly known as Kaspersky Lab, has opened its threat intelligence portal to a bigger audience from Thursday onwards. The service was previously available to business customers and as a premium service only.
Russian security firm Kaspersky — formerly Kaspersky Lab — appears to be providing details of campaigns by nation-state actors, including from the US, to those who subscribe to its private APT (advanced persistent threat or nation-state actors) intelligence reports, judging by one of its recent blog posts.
