Addiction, crime and data breaches: The metaverse could become a wild west if we’re not careful

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, mobile phones, robotics/AI

But with such a rapid expansion into this new virtual world, will it be safe, regulated and, is it something we should fear or accept with open arms?

We talk to David Reid, a Professor of AI and spatial computing at Liverpool Hope University to see what to expect from the future of the metaverse.

There’s a few definitions. You can think of it from a technological viewpoint, where it’s simply the successor of the internet. Computers once took up big rooms, but they’ve shrunk until we got things like pocket-sized smartphones that you constantly interact with. The metaverse takes this a step further, making the actual environment you interact with virtual, removing the interface of computers completely.

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, law enforcement, robotics/AI

Leaked documents appear to show a little-known spyware company offering services that include Android and iOS device exploits for €8 million (roughly $8 million).

Exploit brokers and mercenary spyware providers have been in the spotlight recently, mainly due to revelations surrounding the use of the controversial Pegasus solution of Israeli company NSO Group.

One of NSO’s fairly new competitors is Intellexa, a company founded by Israeli entrepreneur Tal Dilian. The company claims on its website that it’s offering technologies that empower law enforcement and intelligence agencies to ‘help protect communities’. The company says it’s based in the EU and regulated, with six sites and R&D labs in Europe.

Google has launched its new Vulnerability Bounty Program for its open source software. The company will pay up to more than US$31,000 as an incentive to those who find bugs in its ecosystem and report them.

“Today we are launching the Open Source Software Vulnerability Rewards Program (OSS VRP) to reward vulnerability discoveries in Google’s open source projects. As responsible for major projects like Golang, Angular and Fuchsia, Google is among the largest contributors and users of open source in the world. With the addition of Google’s OSS VRP to our family of Vulnerability Bounty Programs (VRPs), researchers can now be rewarded for finding bugs that could potentially affect the entire open source ecosystem,” said Francis Perron, program manager. open source security technician, and Krzysztof Kotowicz, information security engineer, in a statement from Google.

CISA: Prepare now for quantum computers, not when hackers use them

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, encryption, quantum physics

Although quantum computing is not commercially available, CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) urges organizations to prepare for the dawn of this new age, which is expected to bring groundbreaking changes in cryptography, and how we protect our secrets.

The agency published a paper earlier in the week, calling for leaders to start preparing for the migration to stronger secret guarding systems, exploring risk mitigation methods, and participating in developing new standards.
