*** "microsoft support" calls - now with ransomware, (Wed, Oct 2nd) ***
---------------------------------------------
Most of us are familiar with the "microsoft support" call. A phone call is received, the person states they are from "microsoft support" and they have been alerted that your machine is infected. The person will assist you by having you install a remote desktop tool such as teamviewer or similar (we have seen many different versions).

*** Bugtraq: Defense in depth -- the Microsoft way (part 11): privilege escalation for dummies ***
---------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------
BERLIN–The technology industry often is used by politicians, executives and others as an example of how to adapt quickly and shift gears in the face of disruptive changes.

---------------------------------------------
In March of this year, researchers on Symantecs Security Response team began looking at ways in which they might be able to "sinkhole" (takedown) ZeroAcess — one of the worlds largest botnets. But then… in late June, the botnet started updating itself, removing the flaw that the researchers hoped to take advantage of.
