19-Year-Old Crypto Vulnerability Impacts Major Firms

A team of three researchers has dusted off an old crypto vulnerability that can still affect major firms relying on RSA encryption key exchanges. Once the vulnerability is exploited it could enable an attacker to obtain the private encryption key necessary to decrypt sensitive HTTPS traffic under certain conditions. The three researchers, Tripwire’s Craig Young, researcher and journalist Hanno Böck, and Juraj Somorovsky of Ruhr-Universität Bochum have informed vendors affected by the vulnerability. They will make the Proof of Concept code available in time once all affected vendors have patched the vulnerability now called ROBOT. ROBOT, which stands for Return Of Bleichenbacher's Oracle Threat, is the latest in a fairly long line of similar vulnerabilities worked on by researchers. Daniel Bleichenbacher discovered the original threat back in 1998. Since then researchers have published new variations of the origina...

How to Know if You Are Running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows?

You may have heard that Windows can be 32-bit or 64-bit. Both operating systems are designed to utilize a processor, which is named accordingly: 32-bit Windows uses a 32-bit processor, whilst 64-bit uses a 64-bit processor. The main difference between 32-bit and 64-bit is that a 32-bit processor can only address 4 gigabytes (GB) of RAM or less. If, for example, your computer has 8GB of RAM (or more) and is running 32-bit Windows, this means that your system will be using no more than 4GB, and the remaining four (or more) GB will be unused. Only 64-bit operating systems can address more than 4GB of RAM. You can run 32-bit Windows on a 64-bit computer, but to install a 64-bit version of Windows, you need a processor that is capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows. A 64-bit operating system can handle large amounts of memory more efficiently than a 32-bit system and can be more productive when running severa...

Search.josepov.com Redirect (Mac)

Identical to search.lotoboyz.com, search.froktiser.com, and many others, search.josepov.com is a fake Internet search engine. By offering improved search results, search.josepov.com attempts to give the impression of legitimacy, however, this site is promoted using browser-hijacking downloaders/installers that modify browser options without users' permission. Furthermore, this site records various user-system information relating to web browsing activity. Research shows that rogue set-ups target Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Following infiltration, they assign the new tab URL, homepage, and default search engine options to search.josepov.com. In addition, set-ups stealthily install a number of "helper objects" - third party applications (potentially unwanted programs [PUPs]) and/or browser plug-ins. "Helper objects" reassign browser options when attempt...
