Security

After reading about the latest WordPress brute force XML hack, I let myself get talked into upgrading my security plugin to PRO.  I only have about a half dozen WordPress websites, but I think its worth a few bucks to help keep them secure.

Telco security in Canada

This morning, I was checking up on some old security holes, just to see if any had been patched or not. I looked at Rogers and I looked at Bell Canada. Usually, not much changes, but this morning I noted that both had tackled some very very low hanging security fruit.It may be coincidence that they both did this around the same time. It may also be a case of one noticed that the other had "upped their game" and followed suit. Either way, both of these flaws were schoolboy errors that allowed someone to s... read more »

IVR Security Hole Redux with CIBC

In January, I was dealing with the bank CIBC over an issue with their IVR system.To recap, there was a problem with their automated system, where it would call and ask the person who picked up my phone to "press 1" if they were me. If someone presses 1, the bank would then fail to verify if I'm actually me, or the cleaner, the child-care assistant or the robber that just stole my phone and would rattle off what I consider to be personal information.Obviously, I wasn't happy about that security hole as I ... read more »

The Price Of Rushed Software For Apple Watch...

The Apple watch has caused a flurry of apps to be quickly updated to support it, sometimes successfully, and other times it would appear that it was done as part of a "look at us too" campaign by some companies shoe-horning their app onto the device. With the rush to get software out, I am seeing some mistakes slipping through the QA systems of certain apps. Recently, I was contacted by one of my banks about a customer service issue, and as I sometimes do with that bank when they reach out to me, I pu... read more »

3 Ways To Lower Summer Electric Bills

Summer is coming. The temperature is going up and so will our electric bills. Living in sunny Southern California most people think solar panels to lower bills. But solar panels are expensive and not as cost effective as they sound. Every time I get a solar panel quote I keep getting told that they aren’t worth it unless your monthly will is over $150. Here are some more affordable money saving devices that will work regardless where you live and your bill. LED Light Bulbs LED light bulbs use a fractio... read more »

Visa Credit Card Security

It's becoming increasingly more common that when you ask people about the security policies and what they think is secure or not, everything security related becomes someone elses problem. Last week, I posed a loaded security question to Visa Canada where I asked whether something was considered secure given a scenario where something clearly goes wrong in the hypothetical situation.Given what I was asking, I had an expectation that someone would either a) think, that maybe it was worth looking into the ... read more »

Ransomware – What you need to know

So what is ransomware? It is when your computer gets compromised by an evil piece of software that detects files and encrypts them with an almost impossible way to recover your data. Why almost impossible you ask? Well, you could pay the ransom (typically $100-500) and youll actually get a key to unlock your drive. read more »

The CIBC dialogue opens up.

Most people who read my blog know that I have traditionally had a horrible time dealing with CIBC. It does appear however that after the recent issue with the IVR system raising it's head again, we finally have a form of ongoing dialogue. This past week I dropped them a 7 page PDF of issues, and followed that up with an email containing some more items to do with server issues, footholds and such. Already, I've had confirmation that these more recent items will be corrected. That's good news.The flip sid... read more »

Ontario Smart Meters and Security

Sometimes, I see something that doesn't seem right to me, and internally I begin questioning it or trying to work out if it's deliberately not right for some other reason. In Ontario, our Smart Meters are one such item that perplexes me because for all the hay-making in the media about security, it's actually wide open. In Ontario, places such as Ottawa and Toronto have this meter. As meters go, it's pretty standard. There's an ID plate, an LCD screen that gives you basic information, then there's an ... read more »

7 Ways to Help Keep Your Windows Phone Secure

Almost everyone owns a smartphone. People have become very attached to their smartphones that they are rarely without them. They keep them within arm’s reach, sleep next to them, and even use them when in the bathroom. What most people don't realize is that smartphones are a snooper's best friend. The features that make smartphones smart are the same reasons why the modern day smartphone is a private citizen's worst privacy nightmare. Just think about the information you have on your smartphone: email ad... read more »

Technology and Waves

The technology landscape changes quickly, and nearly everyone knows that already. However, the types of changes that occur fluctuate in waves; such as a hardware innovation like we saw in 2007 where Apple comes out with a touchscreen phone, so then by 2008 everyone else has a touchscreen phone. Other times it's software, like we saw with digital assistant services such as Apple's Siri, Googles' Google Now or the new Cortana from Microsoft. Microsoft Cortana In Action...These waves are analogous to ocea... read more »

Your network is secure. Not Really.

Some time ago, I wrote an article talking about security on a network, and how most people, including IT people in the field believe that a firewall and good antivirus is what is needed for their networks. They think a good intrusion detection system added into the mix makes them pretty secure. I debated these beliefs, and even took [] read more »

IT Certifications -What’s good & what to avoid

AT&T Customer Data Accessed

CIBC Security vs A Labrador Dog

Anyone that follows me will know that I have some long running gripes with one of my banks, CIBC. Normally, I'm just complaining about run-of-the-mill stuff at CIBC, like bad customer service, the odd occasion of lying software, or people at the bank doing stuff they shouldn't with my records (that spawned an investigation, so details are not being made public). All of that stuff, though, pales in comparison to security. I take my security rather seriously. Given how low the customer/bank trust has falle... read more »

Humans are the weak link in security

It may have escaped your notice, but Chinese hackers have been pilfering secrets from the USA and this has been in the news a lot. The underlying story for the non-technical minded is that the “weak link” in the security chain wasn’t technology, but humans. That’s where the exploits happened - they were asking people to give up information using some fairly standard means. I was explaining last week how I discovered something online that also fell into this area of vulnerabilities with banks and ISPs in... read more »
