Apprecaited
This is not held for the first time in the history of the world, we heard many times like this news. The Russian internet security department should be more aware of it. The homework help online provides the great services for the students who are seeking help for their academic assignment. I will comeback here soon for more details.

The change
Cybercrime is showing an increasing interest in the sale of stolen personal information, including user's credentials and emails that are considered precious commodities in the underground.

The number of data breaches is tripled 

The amount of data this ring collected spotlights on the necessity to improve protection of our digital identities. Username and passwords are no more enough, people must be trained to know the threats, the risks and to teach them best practices.

We need a layered approach to cyber security ... cybercrime is even more dangerous ... let's imagine what an attacker can do with this information ... amazing.

SQL injection attacks?
How is it that sites are still vulnerable to SQL injection attacks?  Its hard to believe this is still one of the main threats to website security.

Self-serving
While it's good Hold Security has told us about this, I feel like its silence on many counts seems a bit self serving. It claims that some are still vulnerable, which makes sense not to name and shame them, since it could result in people's updated accounts being re-exploited. 

However, the fact that it signed NDAs for some companies seems like it received some sort of payoff to protect their reputation(s). If it was really trying to help the consumer, it would let us know of the worst culprits of lax security.

a billion credentials is stolen
- and then what?

It somehow seems nonconsequential. So spammers send more spam - so what.

Say, when Target got hacked into, the damage was about 100M - although we do not know how this damage is calculated, but at least we know there was damage.

There is a disconnect between the media coverage of the sizes on the breaches, and the lack of media coverage of the consequences.

Not the number of records
 

The amount is huge and that make is impressive, however if you total last the breaches that will go beyond that, most of the time it is not the number of record it is what they end up with. Most passwords in most system are hashed, if a good algorithm is used it will take time for them to get the password and it may not even be worth after a while.

Re: a billion credentials is stolen
They may not end up with anything but this shows there are good amount of sites out there that are vulnerable to SQL injections.

Re: SQL injection attacks?
Mainly old sites that were not re-developed with the latest frameworks. If we are still using ASP pages of course that would be a good option for black hats to try and exercise their skills.

Re: SQL injection attacks?
how's asp classic is any worse than java?

a good framework helps, but the biggest problem is the dynamic sql - concatenated in code from strings such as "select ... where col1 = '" & var1 & "' and col2 = '" and so on.

as long as you keep your sql in stored procedures, and set up the access correctly, you should be ok.

but it takes a lot of planning and dedication to keep the database access under control. it is so much easier for a programmer to just create that select on the fly, and for the manager to keep a blind eye to it.

so sql injection will live on.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,
