Kaspersky OS: 4 Things to Know

Kaspersky Labs have come out with another solution to the cybersecurity worries of the netizens worldwide — the Kaspersky OS, which was in the making for over 14 years and has finally been released commercially.

The secure OS was first announced in November 2016 and the company has rolled out the product commercially now. It works for Internet of Things, network devices such as in telecommunications, connected cars and industrial control systems.

The Moscow-based anti-virus and cyber security company claim that their OS ‘is ahead of any competition’.

Talking about the Kaspersky OS and debunking its myths, Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of the company said, “OS has not a single Linux code, is based on a microkernel architecture and allows customers to examine the source code to make sure it has no undocumented capabilities.”

The company claims that the robust build of the OS is in itself enough to protect a system from malicious code, viruses and hacker attacks.

Incident report on memory leak caused by Cloudflare parser bug

Last Friday, Tavis Ormandy from Google’s Project Zero contacted Cloudflare to report a security problem with our edge servers. He was seeing corrupted web pages being returned by some HTTP requests run through Cloudflare.

It turned out that in some unusual circumstances, which I’ll detail below, our edge servers were running past the end of a buffer and returning memory that contained private information such as HTTP cookies, authentication tokens, HTTP POST bodies, and other sensitive data. And some of that data had been cached by search engines.

For the avoidance of doubt, Cloudflare customer SSL private keys were not leaked. Cloudflare has always terminated SSL connections through an isolated instance of NGINX that was not affected by this bug.

We quickly identified the problem and turned off three minor Cloudflare features (email obfuscation, Server-side Excludes and Automatic HTTPS Rewrites) that were all using the same HTML parser chain that was causing the leakage. At that point it was no longer possible for memory to be returned in an HTTP response.

Stalking Your Stalker: Russian Spy Tips for Meeting People from Dating Sites

So you’ve foolishly agreed to meet an online contact in meat space. And yet you know that online made meetings can be appointments to rob you[ Sacramento police warn of social networking robbery trend ]. What to do?Never fear. Sensing’s got you covered with his own training:Sense of Events: A Soviet spy on how to meet a dating-site match in personThanks to my training at the Army’s counter-terrorism school and former Soviet spy Victor Suvorov’s explanation of “fieldcraft,” the steps that espionage agents take to avoid capture while spying on and in hostile countries, here are the rules for meeting anyone whom you have not met in person before:

1. Try to get a photo sent to you beforehand. The sticky wicket is providing one back. In a word, no. But if you are meeting someone from a dating site, this can be difficult. Judgment call to ask. But it is also likely that the other person’s social media, perhaps even the dating site itself, will have one. But be prepared for it to be, um, inaccurate or out of date.

2. Do insist on being fully told how you will recognize the other person – what s/he is wearing, color of hair, does s/he wear eyeglasses, height, weight (yeah, good luck with that, guys), etc. Then when you go to meet, wear something else. If robbers are using these sites to lure you there, you do not want to show up looking like you.

3. Arrive very early. Suvorov wrote that he always arrived a few hours before the set time, found a spot away from the meeting place and keenly observed who came and went, especially those who came and didn’t went. Of course, he was stealing military secrets so you don’t need to arrive hours, plural, early, but one hour. And then watch. I am guessing that thugs will get there 15-20 minutes beforehand, so be alert, as Suvorov was, for men who arrive and seem to have no purpose being there. In other words, they look like they are waiting…. Read even more tips at Sense of Events
