Black Hat To Release News About Internet Problem
Next week’s Black Hat Europe conference will be sure to offer new information about internet security that could impact the next year in cyberspace activity and virus protection. Black Hat has, “become the biggest and the most important security conference series in the world by sticking to our core value: serving the information security community by delivering timely, actionable security information in a friendly, vendor-neutral environment.”
Reports have indicated that the conference will offer information as important as last year’s research about the widespread flaw and vulnerability of the DNS (Domain Name System). According to MacWorld, Dan Kaminskey’s, “research prompted a massive, industry-wide effort to patch DNS servers vulnerable to a dangerous attack that could redirect Web surfers to fraudulent Web sites even if the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) was typed in correctly, among other attack scenarios.”
This year’s conference, beginning on April 16th, promises to also discuss security problems in Apple OS X the OpenOffice.org suit and SAP software. The conference provides tips and tools for security pros and companies looking to ensure the safety of the software and hardware.
