Is anyone paying attention?

The general theme of recent computer hacks are, unfortunately, all too familiar. Not updating software when there is a clear path to doing so and there is a well-known and publicly documented exploit of that software is negligent and the companies involved should be held liable for damage to client's financial concerns.

Another reason NOT to click

It is a long standing statement of fact that the general internet public is a click happy bunch of folks with little concern or thought for what might be real or not.

Geo-targeted IP and DDoS

Geo-targeting

Geo-targeting an IP address is a simple process that includes obtaining the IP address of an incoming connection and running a quick code check that returns where the IP originated geographically. This technique is widely used for targeted ADs, server traffic analysis, content presentation, and other geographic based information gathering. The process becomes complicated when dealing with spoofed IP addresses. A spoofed IP is one that does not contain accurate IP address information. While it is possible to spoof an IP, there are tools that can look deeper and determine the true source of an IP packet that include Network Ingress/Regress Filtering, Reverse Path Forwarding, reverse tunnels for mobile connections, and other methods.

That could mean FedEx is on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars, as it may have to reimburse the employees for overtime pay…
