Hello Good Evening, welcome to the LEGO Hacking News, were we cover LEGO and IT Security news. Because we can …

LEGO NEWS:

As you can see the LEGO people in the park set is finally here.

Other news: There will be a VW beetle set coming soon. http://brickset.com/article/22070/10252-vw-beetle-press-release It is a nice contrast to the porsche set released earlier this month : http://brickset.com/sets/42056-1/Porsche-911-GT3-RS

Hacking & IT Security news and thoughts:

Microsoft bought LinkedIn http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/06/14/welcome_to_the_microsoftlinkedin_apocalypse/

While that piece of the register is troubling enough, there is other news.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/05/24/linkedin_password_leak_hack_crack/

There was a nice leak of a lot of linkedIn passwords out. And microsoft wants to make LinkedIn a central feature of their “services”. Think about it. Maybe we sit now on 30something million passwords for computer systems. Just look up who is the ceo of a company, suddendly domain admin. Troubling idea.

Also this will mean that the statistical insights in passwords we have duto the linkedin breach will maybe transfer into domain passwords.

Also concerning microsoft: In my previous blog I wrote about combining forensics and pentesting. After thinking a while over win 10. Well where is the the difference between locky and win 10 ? Well with locky you get at least a nice gui for getting the key for your files back.

Ok folks so far for the first installment of my random thoughts about the last days.

Greetings Ucki
