Talk of airborne, unmanned hacking devices has come to light after an email exchange between a Boeing subsidiary and the Hacking Team, an Italian malware manufacturer, was leaked. The proposed drones would be able to invade Wi-Fi networks and take control of any users on the network.
In light of the breach of the Italian security company known as the Hacking Team, Microsoft has published an urgent security update for Windows in order to patch a dangerous zero-day exploit. The Hacking Team data breach has disclosed a huge number of vulnerabilities, including one for Adobe Flash.
After Facebook’s chief security officer has called for the death of Adobe Flash Player, Mozilla decided to actively block the plugin on Firefox. When it was brought to world’s attention once again that Flash is extremely vulnerable, Mozilla made the decision to block it until there was an Adobe Flash update that addressed security issues.
