Identity Theft

Cyber Crime is the number one consumer complaint of the last 15 years. The issue gets worse every year. Have you ever had a virus or malware on your computer? If so, then you have been hacked. This is not really understood by most consumers. The fact that even the smallest or ostensibly most insignificant malware is actually a breach goes over most of our heads. When thinking about all the ways to keep your information and Identity safe, there must be a conversation in your family about how this is achieved. We will develop tools and sell a product that can your family do just that. Stay tuned for more information from our website. Join us Tuesdays at 7:00pm for our weekly information sessions.

Google and Red Hat Discover Massive DNS Security Flaw

Both Google and Red Hat have confirmed the existence of a security flaw (CVE ID: CVE-2015-7547) in GNU software project glibc that allows the execution of arbitrary code via a specially crafted DNS response. The flaw is a stack-based buffer overflow in the send_dg and the send_vc procedures of the libresolv segement of glibc and has existed since version 2.9. The way an attack would work is this: The attacker would prompt the target machine to look up a specially crafted domain, which would prompt a DNS server to reply with a result that exceeds the maximum acceptable length and thus cause a buffer overflow on the target machine. This, in turn, could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

The good news, however, is that they have developed a patch for this issue. I strongly urge all system administrators to apply this patch if they have not done so already. The severity level of this issue is critical.
