    NordVPN is the latest to report a breech

    October 23rd, 2019 by

    Hackers steal secret crypto keys for NordVPN. Here’s what we know so far

    “Hackers breached a server used by popular virtual network provider NordVPN and stole encryption keys that could be used to mount decryption attacks on segments of its customer base.

    A log of the commands used in the attack suggests that the hackers had root access, meaning they had almost unfettered control over the server and could read or modify just about any data stored on it. One of three private keys leaked was used to secure a digital certificate that provided HTTPS encryption for nordvpn.com. The key wasn’t set to expire until October 2018, some seven months after the March 2018 breach. Attackers could have used the compromised certificate to impersonate the nordvpn.com website or mount man-in-the-middle attacks on people visiting the real one. Details of the breach have been circulating online since at least May 2018.”

    Comodo: Security “giant” was breeched……twice!

    October 5th, 2019 by

    Cybersecurity giant Comodo can’t even keep its own website secure

    “According to the disclosure, Comodo said the hackers stole usernames, names and email addresses, as well as the user’s last IP address used to access the forum. Some social media handles were also stolen in the breach.

    Comodo said it has about 245,000 registered forum users.

    It’s not the most damaging breach on record, but it’s a bruising security lapse for a company that claims to be half-decent at this stuff.

    This is Comodo’s second security snafu this year following another breach involving an exposed password, which allowed a security researcher access to the company’s intranet — and access to internal files and documents.”
