Trend Micro researchers have spotted two ransomware variants bearing the same (probably stolen) digital signature in order to fool users into running the files.
GoDaddy, on of the biggest and most popular Internet domain registrars and web hosting companies in the world, has suffered an outage on Monday that left many of its customers' websites temporarily available.
A massive DNS cache poisoning attack attempting to infect users trying to access popular websites is currently under way in Brazil, warns Kaspersky Lab expert Fabio Assolini.
Internet engineers continue to enhance Internet security with the release of OpenDNSSEC, a tool which simplifies the process of signing one or more zones with DNSSEC.
While DNSSEC adoption percentages appear to have increased dramatically by 340 percent this year, the actual number of zones that have been signed is very small: .02 percent, according to a study by Infoblox. This indicates that the vast majority of organizations with an Internet presence are vulnerable to attacks.
