During the holidays, internet-connected devices also known as Internet of Things (IoT) are often popular gifts—such as smart TVs, watches, toys, phones, and tablets. This technology provides a level of convenience to our lives, but it requires that we share more information than ever. The security of this information, and the security of these devices, is not always guaranteed.
The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), part of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), recommends important steps you should consider to make your Internet of Things more secure:
Microsoft has released an emergency patch for a remote code execution (RCE) zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer’s Jscript scripting engine affecting all versions of Windows, including Windows 10.
Are Microsoft’s new C and D updates a good idea or a beta by another name?
Teenage hackers have been making thousands selling stolen accounts for popular online game Fortnite. Another reason to not reuse passwords!
Cryptojacking was the runaway security problem in 2018, damaging devices in cybercriminals’ pursuit of profits. As cryptocurrency prices fall, 2019 could see more attacks.
