Coronavirus Vaccine Latest Update: At a time when a number of companies are busy developing coronavirus vaccine for the deadly virus, the Interpol on Thursday warned law enforcement agencies across the globe that organised criminal networks could try to advertise and sell fake COVID-19 vaccines physically and on the internet.

Issuing an orange alert to all 194 member countries, the Lyon-based international police cooperation body warned agencies to prepare for potential criminal activity in relation to “the falsification, theft and illegal advertising of COVID-19 and flu vaccines”.

“It also includes examples of crimes where individuals have been advertising, selling and administering fake vaccines,” a statement from the Interpol said.

Notably, the Interpol issues an Orange notice to warn of an event, a person, an object or a process representing a serious and imminent threat to public safety. However, the CBI, which is the

This critical software flaw is now being used to break into networks – so update fast

State-backed hackers and criminal gangs are now actively using a vulnerability in mobile device management (MDM) software to successfully gain access to networks across government, healthcare and other industries.

The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued an alert warning that a number of groups are currently using a vulnerability in MDM software from MobileIron.

MDM systems allow system administrators to manage an organisation’s mobile devices from a central server, making them a valuable target for criminals or spies to break into.

SEE: Network security policy (TechRepublic Premium)

In June 2020, MobileIron released security updates to address several vulnerabilities in its products. This included CVE-2020-15505, a remote code execution vulnerability. This critical-rated vulnerability affects MobileIron Core and Connector products, and could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a system.

The NCSC is aware that nation-state groups and cyber criminals “are now actively attempting to exploit this

Breakingviews – Gunmakers and social networks are due a defrocking

NEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) – Guns and social networks have several things in common. Many people enjoy them responsibly, but in the wrong hands they’re dangerous. Yet both enjoy an unfair subsidy in the form of legal protections that shield them from the actions of their users. That can’t last forever.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter boss Jack Dorsey appeared before U.S. senators on Tuesday to justify censoring political speech. At issue is Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which broadly lets social networks off the hook for users’ posts, while also giving them the freedom to mark “objectionable” content. That law, which helped Facebook go from startup to $800 billion company, now effectively makes Zuckerberg and Dorsey arbiters of when content poses a danger to

Cato Networks raises $131M to converge networking with cybersecurity

Cato Networks Inc. today said that it has closed a $131 million round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners at a pre-money valuation of $1 billion.

Tel Aviv-based Cato Networks competes in a market Gartner Inc. refers to as the secure access service edge or SASE segment. SASE platforms provide networking features that enterprises can use to transport data between locations such as offices and security features for protecting that data. This integrated approach eases infrastructure management because networking and security tasks historically had to be performed using different products, often from different suppliers.

Cato Networks’ SASE platform runs on a global network backend operated by the startup that consists of more than 50 so-called points of presence worldwide. Organizations can use the network to route data traffic among their cloud environments, data centers, offices and other sites. It also lends itself to supporting remote workers.

The platform’s cybersecurity layer, in

The Technology 202: YouTube alternative Rumble highlights conservatives’ move to more hands-off social networks

Rumble chief executive Chris Pavlovski tells me in an interview the company has seen a surge in new users since Election Day. He anticipates the company will close out the month with about 80 million unique users, up from about 60 million in October and 40 million midsummer. The company’s app has been installed about 375,000 times in the last seven days, according estimates from data firm Sensor Tower. That’s a 12 percent increase over the number of installs the company was seeing in the seven days leading up to the 2020 election, the firm says. 

Rumble has decided to take a far more hands-off approach to content moderation than others. 

Pavlovski describes his approach to content moderation as similar to the larger tech companies “ten years ago.” Rumble’s terms of service prohibit certain forms of obscene content, such as pornography, nudity or child exploitation, as well as videos

Post-election, extremists use fringe social networks to push fraud claims, violence

Efforts by Facebook and Twitter to squash false claims of election fraud are hitting a big obstacle: The messages are running wild on smaller fringe networks popular among the far right — then boomeranging back onto the mainstream platforms.

Extremist groups, white nationalists and conspiracy theorists — some claiming ties to QAnon, which alleges a so-called deep-state plot to undermine Donald Trump — have taken to encrypted messaging apps and online message boards.

There, they promote viral videos of unproven voter fraud, urge supporters to ready their guns in support of Trump and push anti-Semitic and racist claims about election officials, according to POLITICO’s review of multiple Telegram channels, 4Chan discussions and conversations on Parler, a social network favored by more mainstream conservatives.

Such discussions have skyrocketed on these alternative platforms since the Nov. 3 election, creating a safe harbor for those pushing claims of fraud and a venue to
