What are hackers after

We hear a lot about zero-day attacks and system vulnerabilities, but most hackers look for easier enterprises like the application used to access the Web. That's the one most online attackers will target. Why? Because most attackers and online exploit kit designers realize that the common browser is usually an endpoint's weakest link. Not only are enterprises generally slow to keep up with browser patching, they're downright sluggish at updating plug-ins and extensions.

Chinese hackers identified

Earlier this year information security firm Mandiant identified a previously unknown group hackers thought to be in China. "People referred to China or Chinese hackers, but there was plenty of wiggle room there to assume it could be a collection of guys working in someone's basement without a tie to the government," Richard Behtlich chief security officer for Mandiant. The group the identified is called Unit 61398. Bejtlich says, "we showed pretty conclusively that at least this one group is part of the PLA" AKA The Chinese People's Liberation Army.

Cyber Security: Achieving Cyber Resilience

Faced with rapid technological advancements and increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, organizations must act now to acquire or improve cyber resilience to protect their agencies or departments from theft, fraud and sabotage. Experience has shown that cyber resilience requires a coordinated approach across five areas: policy and compliance; budget; the IT enterprise architecture; acquisitions, and security operations. Determining where to focus first is often difficult. Many organizations begin with a situational assessment of their cyber health within the context of the current environment and their own business and mission imperatives. From there, organizations can quickly prioritize problems -business processes, operational, technological or personnel - and take decisive actions that will enhance cyber resilience and help reduce risk.

Computer Virus

They are back online now, but it was a tough week for the U.S. Marshals Service. A good old fashioned computer virus infected the agencies' PCs. That forced officials to disconnect them from the Internet for a few days while the tech staff performed a clean out and upgrade. Turns out that for the Marshals, only 140 machines were affected. But the incident reinforced the basic cyber security advice: Keep your anti-virus software updated. I'm Tom Temin.
