Botnets are being used to generate up to 80,000 daily queries on search engines daily. This experts said allows for a filtered list of potentially exploitable sites to be created in a very short time with minimal effort. The attacker’s identity remains concealed as searches are conducted using botnets and not the hacker’s IP address. Amichai Shulman, CTO of Imperva, said that hackers have become experts at using Google to create a map of hackable targets on the web and this allows them … Read Full Post »

Others, though, appear to blunder in, without a second thought to just how pervasive technology has become. So it seems in the case of a youth who allegedly thought it might be an idea, during last week’s riots, to steal a MacBook Pro from a house in the West Kensington district of London. The way t… Read Full Post »
