*** Scans Increase for New Linksys Backdoor (32764/TCP), (Thu, Jan 2nd) ***
---------------------------------------------
We do see a lot of probes for port 32764/TCP . According to a post to github from 2 days ago, some Linksys devices may be listening on this port enabling full unauthenticated admin access. [1]  At this point, I urge everybody to scan their networks for devices listening on port 32764/TCP. If you use a Linksys router, try to scan its public IP address from outside your network.   Our data shows almost no scans to the port prior to today, but a large number from 3 source IPs today. The by far

*** Cost/Benefit Analysis of NSAs 215 Metadata Collection Program ***
---------------------------------------------
It has amazed me that the NSA doesnt seem to do any cost/benefit analyses on any of its surveillance programs. This seems particularly important for bulk surveillance programs, as they have significant costs aside from the obvious monetary costs. In this paper, John Mueller and Mark G. Stewart have done the analysis on one of these programs. Worth reading....

*** UPDATED X1 : OpenSSL.org Defaced by Attackers Gaining Access to Hypervisor, (Thu, Jan 2nd) ***
---------------------------------------------
By now, most of you have heard that the openssl.org website was defaced. While the source code and repositories were not tampered with, this obviously concerned people. What is more interesting is that the attack was made possible by gaining access to the hypervisor that hosts the VM responsible for the website. Attacks of this sort are likely to be more common as time goes on as it provides easy ability to take over a host without having to go through the effort of actually rooting a box.
