Windows 10 Powering 400 Million Devices As Windows 7 Survives the Upgrade Frenzy
Microsoft has recently revealed that Windows 10 is running on 400 million devices across the world, including here PCs, tablets, laptops, smartphones, and Xbox consoles. These new numbers show only a small growth over the 300 million figure announced on May 5, so Windows 10 improved by approximately 100 million active devices in about 5 months. Previously, Microsoft said that Windows 10 was installed on 207 million devices at the end of March. The free upgrade offer for Windows 7 and 8.1 users ended on July 29, and it’s believed that this is one of the main reasons why Windows 10 experienced a slowdown in worldwide adoption. Right now, consumers who didn’t perform the upgrade before July 29 need to pay for the new operating system, with pricing starting at $119.99 for the Home SKU in the United States. The post-free upgrade slowdown Before the end of the free upgrade campaign, approximately 30 million new devices installed Windows 10 every month,...

Spamhaus Warns of a Rise in IPv4 Network Hijacks
Spamhaus, the organization that runs one of the Internet's largest, most accurate and up-to-date spam list, is warning against a spike in network hijacking events. Network or BGP hijacking occurs when an ISP falsely announces to other service providers that an IP range has been found on its network, when it has not. That ISP can then receive traffic destined for that range of IPs, but it can also send traffic on behalf of the hijacked network. Spammers guilty for most network hijacks While receiving hijacked traffic might be of interest for nation-state actors, as Bruce Schneier warned last week, sending traffic from a hijacked network is a spammer's dream. Spamhaus says that, in the past three years, BGP hijacks have grown in number, with most of these events occurring because of spammers, an...

New Mac Komplex Trojan Used for Cyber-Espionage
Security researchers have discovered Komplex, a new Mac OS X trojan which they say is tied to the activities of a cyber-espionage group named Sofacy, operating out of Russia. Researchers claim they've only spotted the malware payloads until now and haven't tied it to any infected victims. Nevertheless, they say that, based on the document lures used during their operation, the trojan samples seem to have been customized to target individuals in the aerospace industry. Palo Alto Networks, the company that detected the trojan, says there are three versions of this trojan known to date. There's a version that can target x64 architectures, one for x86 architectures, and another for both. Komplex uses MacKeeper vulnerability to compromise targets Security experts say the infection occurs when the trojan's first-stage component leverages a vulnerability in the MacKeeper Mac antivirus application to get a foothold on a Mac computer. From the samples th...

Canonical Patches OpenSSL Regression in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS & 12.04 LTS
After announcing a few days ago that a new, important OpenSSL update is available for all supported Ubuntu Linux operating systems, Canonical's Marc Deslauriers now informs the community about another patch to address a regression. The new security advisory (USN-3087-2) talks about a regression that was accidentally introduced along with the previous OpenSSL update (as detailed on USN-3087-1), which addressed no less than eleven (11) security vulnerabilities discovered upstream by the OpenSSL team. Users were urged to upgrade to the following new OpenSSL packages: libssl1.0.0 1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.4 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, libssl1.0.0 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2.20 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and libssl1.0.0 1.0.1-4ubuntu5.37 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. However, new ver...

Mozilla Ready to Ban WoSign Certificates for One Year After Shady Behavior
Mozilla is pondering applying a one-year-long ban on all newly issued SSL certificates from Chinese CA (Certificate Authority) WoSign and Israeli CA StartCom, which WoSign appears to have secretly bought last year. Mozilla's engineers announced the potential ban following an investigation into a series of suspicious SSL SHA-1 certificates issued by both companies. The full investigation report can be read below this article. Both CAs have tried to avoid the SHA-1 ban The issues revolve around a common decision that browser makers made last year to stop accepting SSL certificates signed via the ancient SHA-1 algorithm starting January 1, 2016. Mozilla is accusing WoSign that they've been issuing SHA-1-signed certificates and back-dating them to December 2015. While Mozilla has allowed other CAs to issue SHA-1 certificates after January 1, 2016,

Black Lab Linux 8 Beta 3 Is Out with Full EFI Support, Based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Softpedia was informed today, September 26, 2016, by Black Lab Software's CEO Robert J. Dohnert about the availability of the third Beta development snapshot of the upcoming Black Lab Linux 8 GNU/Linux operating system. Black Lab Linux 8 "Onyx" Beta 3 is here approximately three weeks after the second Beta pre-release and it comes with a major change. It is no longer based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), as the development team decided to switch base and move to the next Ubuntu LTS version, namely Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus). "The development team is pleased to announce the new Beta release of Black Lab Linux 8 - our latest OS offering to bring the best Linux desktop distribution currently on the market. This release moves the kernel and application set away from the prior LTS 14.04 base to the new 16.04 LTS ...

Fedora 26 Linux OS to Ship with OpenSSL 1.1.0 by Default for Better Security
Fedora Program Manager Jan Kurik informs the Fedora Linux community about a new system-wide change for the upcoming Fedora 26 operating system, namely the addition of the OpenSSL 1.1.0 libraries by default. It appears that current Fedora Linux releases ship with OpenSSL 1.0.2h, which has been patched with the latest security fixes, but the team decided it was time to upgrade the OpenSSL libraries (libssl and libcrypto) to a newer, more advanced branch. Therefore, Fedora 26 Linux will ship with OpenSSL 1.1.0 by default, which will have a massive impact on the overall stability and security of the OS. "Update the OpenSSL library to the 1.1.0 branch in Fedora to bring multiple big improvements, new cryptographic algorithms, and new API that allows for keeping ABI stability in future upgrades. We will also add compat openssl102 package so the applications and other dependencies which are not ported yet to the new API continue to work," reads the

Parsix GNU/Linux 8.15 "Nev" Is in the Works, to Ship with the GNOME 3.22 Desktop
We told you the other day that the Parsix GNU/Linux development team informed the community that new security updates were available for the current stable Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 "Erik" and Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" releases. However, they also revealed on the project's official Twitter account that they are currently working on the next major version of the Debian-based operating system, Parsix GNU/Linux 8.15, which will be dubbed "Nev" and will be built on top of the recently released GNOME 3.22 desktop environment. "We started working on Parsix GNU/Linux 8.15 codename 'Nev' which will be shipped with GNOME Desktop 3.22," said the Parsix GNU/Linux developers. Of course, Parsix G...

IPFire 2.19 Linux Firewall OS Patched Against the Latest OpenSSL Vulnerabilities
Only three days after announcing the release of IPFire 2.19 Core Update 104, Michael Tremer informs the community about the availability of a new update, Core Update 105, which brings important OpenSSL patches. Therefore, IPFire 2.19 Core Update 105 is now the latest version, which is a recommended update for anyone running IPFire 2.19 Core Update 104 or a previous maintenance release, and it includes OpenSSL 1.0.2i, an important security patch that addresses a total of eleven vulnerabilities discovered by various developers upstream. Additionally, it also fixes a recent security flaw in the libgcrypt library. "Felix Dörre and Vladimir Klebanov from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology found a bug in the mixing functions of Libgcrypt’s random number generator: An attacker who obtains 4640 bits from the RNG can trivially predict t...

New Open Source Linux Ransomware Divides Infosec Community
UPDATE: Following our investigation into this matter, and seeing the vitriol-filled reaction from some people in the infosec community, Zaitsev has told Softpedia that he decided to remove the project from GitHub, shortly after this article's publication. The original, unedited article is below. CryptoTrooper, an open source kit for building Linux ransomware, has divided the infosec community right down the middle. The hot potato at the heart of the debate is the same issue that surrounded Utku Sen's EDA2 and Hidden Tear ransomware building kits for Windows. Should security researchers create "ransomware for educational purposes" and should they release them on GitHub? While you may think the clear-cut answer is "Hell NO!!!," surprisingly, the reality is quite different. A recent Twitter poll has asked users "Is open source ransomware helping improve ransomware detection/prevention, or making it worse?" ...
