Seguridad

Hace poco la empresa Trend Micro descubrió una vulnerabilidad, consecuencia de una violación de seguridad del Hacking Team. Este bug de Flash por desgracia afecta a todos los equipos Windows, Mac y Linux por lo que nadie esta salvo. De todas formas, Adobe ya ha dicho que lanzará un parche a lo largo de las próximas horas.

“El más hermoso bug de Flash en los últimos cuatro años”. Así es como lo llaman los hackers, ya que afecta a todas las versiones del programa, ya sean Windows, Mac o Linux. Obviamente en Adobe están acostumbrados ya que no es la primera vez que salen a luz pública vulnerabilidades de este tipo. Pero aunque esta vez es más grave, ya tienen preparado un parche que será lanzado en las próximas horas según el boletín publicado por la compañía.

“Una vulnerabilidad crítica (CVE-2.015-5.119) se ha identificado en Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.194 y versiones anteriores para Windows, Macintosh y Linux. Una explotación exitosa podría causar un accidente y potencialmente permitir a un atacante tomar el control del sistema afectado. Adobe tiene conocimiento de que un exploit de focalización de esta vulnerabilidad ha sido publicado. Adobe espera tener actualizaciones disponibles el 8 de julio de 2015”. De esta manera esperan tranquilizar a sus usuarios.

Hacking Team

Como seguro que ya sabéis, un grupo que ofrecía servicios de hacking para grandes empresas fue hackeado a principios de esta semana descubriendo un montón de documentos internos. Unos 400 GB de correos electrónicos, código fuente de programas, listas de clientes, facturas, etc. Este ha sido uno de los motivos por lo que el bug ha salido a la luz y Adobe ha tenido que ponerse manos a la obra.

De todas formas, aunque la vulnerabilidad es bastante importante, Adobe no ha tardado en responder por lo que esta vez merece todo nuestro reconocimiento. Esperemos que en el futuro tengan más cuidado con este tipo de problemas o que al menos los solucionen tan rápido como hoy.

    Everyone seems to love those cute hats unfortunately, it goes aganist the core of Permadeath when you use the DDO Store to buy something that enhances your stats the way the hat does. You could wear it on another character perhaps?From the guilds rules: You may not purchase anything quest related (rez cakes, loot potions, xp potions, store hirelings, etc), nor may you purchase +1 tomes or other character enhancers. When they were selling the lucky green hat I wanted one for my permies so badly.. but It gives you a plus 1 to your will save, so I had to let it go. I compensated by buying a hat for all of my non-PD characters. Conversely, I think the three-cornered hat doesn’t do anything. I can’t tell if you are angry about the hat rule or the thread being closed. I agree that the thread should have been allowed to be debated. Debate is healthy. I am pretty sure the outcome would have been the same. The final word being no as that hat is a serious stat changer. I am sorry I didn’t notice you wearing it the day I played with you. I would have told ya.Cheers M8Lessah

    I want to thank God for what he’s done in my life thus far. I graduated from the unrviesity in 2008, with the dream of doing my Masters abroad but it wasn’t forthcoming. I applied to a unrviesity in Canada in 2011 but my application was turned down. Later that year when I was seeing if I could apply to other universities for admission in 2012, the spirit of God told me to mail that same school that refused me admission earlier in the year, which I did and to my greatest surprise, the school replied and were asking me are you still interested in coming?, just reply yes and we will send your admission letter . I couldn’t believe it, with the speed of light I replied yes and that was how I got admission with funding attached.This testimony was borne out of the fact that I made a pledge that if God can grant me a Visa I will testify to his goodness in my life. When I filled my application for the Canadian Visa, somehow I omitted a very vital document that without it one’s application was going to be returned, but I prayed to God and he had his way, before I knew it, I was called up for medicals and in the month of grace, I received grace from heaven and my Visa was issued on the 31st of May .I didn’t get to know this until the 15th of June when I was asleep and I felt so restless in the night,something led me to prayer after which the spirit led me to track my Visa application, I broke down to tears when I found out it had been ready for pick-up, with the conviction in my heart that the lord had done it. On getting to the pick up centre on June 18th, lo and behold my Visa was there to welcome me I am now in Canada for my M.Sc program, Praise ye the Lord!!!!!!
