  1. Disturbing news about some fundamental security mistakes in military weapon systems including the F35. I believe this is an area that major civilian aeroplane manufacturers are also trying to shore up by offering kudos (and cash?) to security analysts that highlight exploitable security flaws in tubeliners, and prevent the public from being able to access systems onboard. — Some of the most cutting-edge weapons in the US's military arsenal can be "easily hacked" using "basic tools", a government report has concluded. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) found "mission-critical" cyber-vulnerabilities in nearly all weapons systems tested between 2012 and 2017. That includes the newest F-35 jet as well as missile systems. Pentagon officials had no immediate response to the 50-page report from the Senate Armed Services Committee. The committee's members expressed concerns about how protected weapon systems were against cyber-attacks. The report's main findings were: ■ the Pentagon did not change the default passwords on multiple weapons systems - and one changed password was guessed in nine seconds ■ a team appointed by the GAO was able to easily gain control of one weapons system and watch in real time as the operators responded to the hackers ■ it took another two-person team only one hour to gain initial access to a weapons system and one day to gain full control ■ many of the test teams were able to copy, change or delete system data with one team downloading 100 gigabytes of information The GAO added that the Pentagon "does not know the full scale of its weapons system vulnerabilities".

  3. CCleaner, the incredibly popular PC maintenance utility, has been hacked to include malware. Here’s how to tell if you were affected, and what you should do. RELATED ARTICLE What Does CCleaner Do, and Should You Use It? The attack was discovered by researchers at Cisco Talos, who found that “the legitimate signed version of CCleaner 5.33. . .also contained a multi-stage malware payload that rode on top of the installation of CCleaner.” CCleaner’s parent company, Piriform (who was recently bought by terrible antivirus company Avast), acknowledged the issue shortly thereafter. Since CCleaner claims to have millions of downloads per week, that is potentially a severe issue. LINK TO SOURCE: https://www.howtogeek.com/326742/ccleaner-was-hacked-what-you-need-to-know/
