Global cybersecurity threats at record levels
Thursday - 8/26/2010, 8:30am EDT
- Computer security threats rose by 36 percent in the first half of 2010. IBM's X-Force says that's a record level. Their 2010 Mid-Year Trend and Risk Report shows that more than 4,000 new vulnerabilities were documented in the first half of the year. Of those, 55 percent had no vendor-supplied patch. The leading threat - web application vulnerabilities. Cloud computing and virtualization were also key security issues.
- The National Science Foundation issues grant money for research into increasing security of cyber information used for intelligence and counterterrorism. The research will look into cross-matching datasets, and the information provided to them, to support intelligence, forensics and disease control efforts. The funding will be used to develop a more secure system, and to maintain privacy, the New New Internet reports. The University of Texas at Dallas and Purdue University received one-million dollars of funding for the research.
