A severe vulnerability in a system on certain Qualcomm chips, which has been patched, potentially could have enabled attackers to remotely control Android smartphones, access users' text messages and listen in on conversations, according to a new report from Check Point Software Technologies.
Intel and AMD are disputing the findings of researchers from two universities who say they've discovered new attacks on Intel and AMD processors that can bypass most of the defenses put in place earlier for similar "Spectre" and "Meltdown" attacks.
To help mitigate the risks of state-sponsored cyberattacks against India's critical infrastructure - and improve detection and response - requires industry collaboration and information sharing, root cause analysis with specialized forensics, and better testing of code, a panel of experts says.
Bloomberg has stood firm on its controversial story from two years ago asserting that China implanted a tiny chip on motherboards made by Supermicro. But rather than proving its contention in a follow-up, it may have inflicted more reputational damage upon itself.
Police have arrested 10 individuals suspected of being part of an international gang that targeted U.S. celebrities by using SIM-swapping attacks to steal cash and more than $100 million in cryptocurrency. Authorities say hackers continue to target cryptocurrency holders and exchanges.
Until May, all Apple iOS devices were vulnerable to a "zero-click exploit" that would have allowed hackers to remotely gain complete control and view all emails, photos, private messages and more, says Google security researcher Ian Beer. He alerted Apple to multiple vulnerabilities - all now patched.
Two vulnerabilities in Tesla's keyless entry system allowed researchers to clone a key fob and drive away with a Model X. The electric vehicle manufacturer is issuing over-the-air updates to fix the flaws, which allegedly center on a failure to validate firmware updates and a faulty Bluetooth pairing protocol.
As you look to securely enable a long-term remote workforce, you need a security framework that can support you both today and in the future, keeping your people, your data, and your infrastructure safe. That's where zero trust comes in.

President Donald Trump says TikTok and Oracle are close to making a deal. Don't neglect to read the fine print. While the president has demanded TikTok divest its U.S. operations - preferably to Oracle - because of national security concerns, the Chinese firm is instead offering Oracle a minority stake.
Qualcomm is prepping patches for its Snapdragon Digital Signal Processor, used in an estimated 1 billion or more Android devices, after researchers at Check Point counted 400 flaws that attackers could exploit to take control of devices and steal all data they store.
The rapid pace of change for the the industrial internet of things will open up new risks for attacks and will require close attention to security, according to a new study from the Lloyd's Register Foundation.
Britain's U-turn on Huawei, announcing that it will now ban the manufacturer's gear from its 5G networks, highlights this as yet unresolved problem: Years of underinvestment and policy failures have left Britain and its allies with no inexpensive, trusted alternative.
IoT devices can be made cheaply and quickly. But as a result, they may lack adequate security features. The Atlantic Council is proposing regulations that would require technology retailers to sell devices that meet security standards, which would, in turn, put pressure on IoT component makers.
The Trump administration's continued press against China snared an unintended victim: America's own influence over 5G standards development. But the U.S. Commerce Department says a new rule will free U.S. firms to work with any company, including China's Huawei, on developing new telecommunications standards.
Britain is reconsidering whether Huawei's technology will be used its national 5G rollout as a result of increased White House sanctions against the Chinese telecommunications giant, which could result in Huawei having to source semiconductors from less reliable sources.
