can transmit information between computers using high-frequency sound waves inaudible to the human ear. The duo successfully sent passwords and more between non-networked Lenovo T400 laptops via the notebooks’ built-in microphones and speakers. Freaky-deaky!
The infected victim sends all recorded keystrokes to the covert acoustical mesh network. Infected drones forward the keystroke information inside the covert network till the attacker is reached.

We're testing SEP 12.1.2 on a 64-bit Windows 7 Pro client.    When we run a full scan, sometimes we get a large difference in the number of files scanned.   For example, sometimes SEP will report 170,000 files scanned, then if we immediately run another full scan, SEP will report 80,000 files scanned.  

The answer from Symatec Support is that this is normal behaviour for  the SEP 12.1 client.

Support says that the first full scan after an AV defs update rescans everything, including the file cache.  Subsequent full scans performed before the next AV defs update does not rescan everything as some files are marked as already having been scanned.   Support says the product was designed this way for performance.   

In our scans, we're seeing between 1,500 and 3,000 files trusted, but the apparently the number of trusted files are not the reason for the difference in the full...

You must have been taking a long (and probably well deserved) holiday if you have not noticed the increasing use of the term “cyber” in the press recently.

Anything security related is now a cyber risk, a cyber incident or a cyber attack. Governments are driving cyber strategies, citizens need to be cyber aware, businesses are tabling cyber projects, companies are building cyber capabilities, vendors are creating cyber solutions and consultancies are creating cyber practices to help you enhance your cyber resilience.

With all this hype, the key question is - what is different from the infrastructure and information security we have been doing for years and this new cyber approach? This is a good question because everyone seems to have a different perspective on cyber. And for very good reasons.

At Symantec, we get the opportunity to discuss the different interpretations of cyber with many types of users and businesses – consumers, small and...
