Need Disk Encryption? TrueCrypt is Still One of the Best Options

In mid-2014, to the chagrin of many, TrueCrypt development was discontinued. Considering its popularity and the general response by the public, it was no surprise that within a few months a group of developers have revived this open source stalwart by forking the code into CipherShed.

Using Metascan and F5 Big IP Appliances to Block Malicious File Uploads

Previously, we have discussed how Metascan® can be used to scan HTTP traffic that is being routed through a Blue Coat proxy server. Routing traffic through a proxy allows an organization to be protected against any threats coming into the network as a result of people within the network accessing malicious files. In this case, potential malware is prevented from being ‘pulled’ into the organization unwittingly.

Top Three Ways to Protect Yourself from Ransomware

In a recent article 'How My Mom Got Hacked', essayist Alina Simone wrote about how her mother became a victim of the latest form of ransomware: Cryptowall 2.0 (detected by multiple antivirus engines as variations of Trojan.Win32/Filecoder). Like other ransomware, once unleashed Cryptowall encrypts all the files on your hard drive and any connected devices. The malware then shows a ransomnote, saying that you have one week to pay a fee to receive the key to decrypt your files. In this case, the victim was asked to pay $500 within a week, otherwise the fee would go up to $1,000. The malware then shows a countdown clock, increasing the pressure to pay up! Mom ended up paying the fee, and at least did receive her decryption key from the hackers. However, the Internet Crime Complaint Center advises not to pay the ransomware since if victims keep on paying the ransomware this will keep on enticing the ‘bad guys’ to continue creating new ransomware. In other words, prevention is the best option.
