Re: Obama
I tend to agree with this sentiment.  I am seeing many foreign companies balk at hosting their data on cloud servers hosted withing the United States as a direct result of the Snowden leaks.  While the US government may not be actually snooping every file in the cloud the perception is that they can.  Until that changes we will have a hard time being the information security leaders of the world.

Re: Going after bad guys
@Dr. T  Great point. No matter how secure our software is, the bad guys will always come up with new ways to compromise it. On the other hand, there are certain things that we should be able to get right; certain kinds of hacks that are 5 or 10 years old and we should be able to keep those vulnerabilities out of our code.

Re: New World, New Laws.....Congress Get With IT
@Technocrati  Well hopefully this won't be one of those things that becomes a divisive issue that the two parties refuse to agree upon. Maybe that would give it a better chance of being reformed.

Re: Obama
Obviously all the countries are doing Wire Tapping. However it does hurt US companies providing solutions to oversees more than the other way around in my view.

Re: New World, New Laws.....Congress Get With IT
Most likely not much progress, as article mentioned it actually goes beyond US congress, it is borderless environment.

Going after bad guys
 

Good article, enjoyed reading it. Going after guys is the problem. Obviously bad guys always succeed, the question has to be what we do so we are ahead of them. That is actually practically possible, we simply need to be smarter than them. Also, it is less about testing more about innovating new ways of hacking.

Re: Obama
For the record, Wire Tapping was going on long before he ever entered office.  Did you have a problem with it then ?    Considering most of these botnets are formed outside of the U.S., those hosting these botnets might have some ethical standards to consider as well. 

Oh, this is not happening ?   No surprise and neither is wire tapping.

New World, New Laws.....Congress Get With IT
Not I understand who No-IP is, but I agree with their aim of updating legistation to address the new world we have been living in for quite some time now.  I am not sure how much progress will be made in Congress though, they don't seem to be too intent on passing any meaningful legisaltion.  Something citizens should make this a topic for their congressman or woman to remember.

It is painful to write this as I know my words are sadly true.

Obama
I think if President Obama didn't insist on continuing to support warrantless phone and wire tapping of its citizens and foreigners, then the world at large would be much more keen to help US companies crack down on botnets.

As it stands, sharing any information with the US can cause real problems with your customers' confidence in you.

How was Microsoft able to take down this service?
I thought I understood DNS, sort of, but I'm not following how Microsoft was able to take out this site in the first place. Was Microsoft hosting the infrastructure as an upstream provider or reseling domanins through No-IP?

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
