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.
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.
