SecurityWeek news and information

U.S. Launched Cyber Attacks on Iran After Drone Shootdown | #TpromoCom #Cyber #Hacker #Drone | U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computers that crippled computers used to control rocket and missile launches, U.S. officials said Saturday.

US President Donald Trump is said to have secretly authorized US Cyber Command to carry out a retaliatory cyber attack on Iran in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone.

The action by U.S. Cyber Command was a demonstration of the U.S.’s increasingly mature cyber military capabilities and its more aggressive cyber strategy under the Trump administration.

5 Keys to Improve Your Cybersecurity

Hacker News

5 Keys to Improve Your Cybersecurity | #TpromoCom #CyberSecurity #Internet #Security | Cybersecurity isn’t easy. If there was a product or service you could buy that would just magically solve all of your cybersecurity problems, everyone would buy that thing, and we could all rest easy.

However, that is not the way it works. Technology continues to evolve. Cyber attackers adapt and develop new malicious tools and techniques, and cybersecurity vendors design creative new ways to detect and block those threats. Rinse and repeat.

Cybersecurity isn’t easy, and there is no magic solution, but there are a handful of things you can do that will greatly reduce your exposure to risk and significantly improve your security posture.

Firefox Releases Critical Patch Update to Stop Ongoing Zero-Day Attacks

Firefox Releases Critical Patch Update to Stop Ongoing Zero-Day Attacks | #TpromoCom #Browser #Patch #Hackers | If you use the Firefox web browser, you need to update it right now.
Mozilla earlier today released Firefox 67.0.3 and Firefox ESR 60.7.1 versions to patch a critical zero-day vulnerability in the browsing software that hackers have been found exploiting in the wild.

Discovered and reported by Samuel Groß, a cybersecurity researcher at Google Project Zero, the vulnerability could allow attackers to remotely execute arbitrary code on machines running vulnerable Firefox versions and take full control of them.

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #VideoSurveillance #AI | I’d like to tell you about a new, revolutionary outdoor CCTV product that is like none other. I use the word “revolutionary” because it is just that. It leverages the use of quality Megapixel/HD quality, pan-tilt-zoom cameras with machine learning and an entirely newly developed series of audio, thermal, and radar-oriented sensors. Add to that an AI (Artificial Intelligence)-based learning control platform and you have an almost human-like control system with Big Data analysis. http://bit.ly/2KKKhEc

The focus of this new tech is outdoor protection. It uses thermal, sound, and radar to focus in on moving targets, along with a Smartphone app that stakeholders can use to alert the system when there’s a potential problem of an immediate nature. Cameras automatically  follow targets, which is not entirely new, but that’s just the beginning of the story.

The uniquely developed sensors allow the system to hear, see, and detect what the camera cannot see using a variety of unique sensors that truly makes this system revolutionary. Interaction between this interactive, integrated video surveillance system and stakeholders is audio/visual in nature, further deterring would-be assailants. 

Currently the system operates using a unique machine learning system, but an AI (Artificial Intelligence) processing system is now in the works and will soon be incorporated, giving the system the ability to react with even more speed and intelligence. Through Big Data analysis, over time the system will learn the habits and trends associated with each camera within each specific setting, thus enabling the system to  quickly identify departures from the norm. There’s more. 

I’d like to propose a complementary story on the tech with a short interview with the developer, who happens to be John Collings, the former inventor and developer of Uplink. A sidebar will delve into the advancements in AI and how they will be leveraged to make this new technology a must-have for office complexes, shopping malls, multiple-tenant housing, industrial complexes, chain stores, etc.

56% of all light vehicles in the US will be actively connected cars by 2022

56% of all light #vehicles in the US will be actively connected #cars by 2022 | #TpromoCom #IoT #Internet | Parks Associates estimates the US will have 169 million actively connected cars by 2022, representing 56% of all light vehicles.

The firm’s 23rd-annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, May 21-23 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, features the Connected Car Corner, by InstallerNet, and a special session on the connected car-smart home crossover to examine the latest innovations in this market area and the opportunities for vendors, manufacturers, and service providers to extend their IoT solutions to the vehicle.

The Connected Car Corner, by InstallerNet, features innovations from Alpine, Owlcam, Reviver, SiriusXM, Support.com, VOXX, and Waylens, among others. Solutions on display include Android Auto and Apple Car Play, dash camera recording, customer lifecycle support, digital key control and license plate, driver scoring, remote engine start, radar detection, GPS navigation, safety and security features, voice activation, WiFi hotspot, and wireless backup camera.

The session “Connected Cars: Extension for the Smart Home” features the following speakers:

  • Brian Brackenbury, Director, Connected Products, Gentex Corporation
  • Jan-Philipp Gehrmann, Director, Head of Automotive Sales & Marketing Silicon Valley, NXP
  • Andy Hodge, CEO, Founder, Owl Cameras Inc.
  • Katie McMahon, VP and GM, SoundHound Inc.
  • Dr. Alan Messer, CTO, Mojio

“From a technology perspective, many of the building blocks are already in-place for cars to connect to the smart home; however, ensuring a simple, intuitive, easy-to-use interface is critical for a non-distracted driving experience,” said Brian Brackenbury, Director, Connected Products, Gentex Corporation. “While voice has made some great strides forward, the automobile environment has factors like road noise, fellow passengers, and noisy kids that don’t always make voice the right choice for a user interface. Aggregating the fragmented services into a simple, one-touch interface, like HomeLink Connect, will ensure the end user gets something they can actually use every day, in all conditions!”

“The interrelationships between our homes, devices, and vehicles are becoming smarter and more seamless,” said Jan-Philipp Gehrmann, Sr. Director, Head of Automotive Sales & Marketing Silicon Valley, NXP. “I look forward to joining the Premier Connected Home Conference to share more about these exciting developments and how new automotive technologies are making transport increasingly autonomous, safer, more environmentally sound, and securely connected.”

“Connected car is what’s next after the connected home. Just like it is in the home, video security is at the heart of what consumers and businesses need for their cars and trucks,” said Andy Hodge, CEO, Founder, Owl Cameras Inc.

“Our burgeoning global population is straining our housing supply worldwide. We must do everything we’re able to avoid a tangential energy crisis, and smart apartment technology is uniquely positioned to do so,” said Felicite Moorman, CEO, STRATIS IoT.

“With the adoption of voice AI technology in connected cars as a top priority in the automotive industry, we’re at a tipping point for leveraging voice across all industries,” said Katie McMahon, VP/GM, SoundHound. “I look forward to telling the story of how integrating voice AI into cars and other Internet of Things devices can vastly improve consumers’ customized experiences, as well as allow companies to maintain their own brands.”

“The smart home ecosystem is expanding rapidly,” said Dr. Alan Messer, CTO, Mojio. “As consumers realize the value of an increasingly connected lifestyle, innovative players like Mojio and Vivint are enabling the next generation of consumer IoT services that unite the capabilities of connected cars and smart homes to unlock enhanced safety, security, and convenience protection for the two most valuable assets – our homes and our cars.”
