In the modern world, it’s easy to understand that data is absolutely essential to many corporations and organizations. There is an ever-growing need to understand the needs and desires of your customer base, so that you may tailor your products/services/platform as much as possible to meet these particular needs. However, we also are coming to a point where human beings are beginning to realize that the way that their data is being used can be quite harmful. One of the most obvious examples is the [Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal](https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/19/technology/facebook-cambridge-analytica-explained.html), in which data from Facebook’s user base was used to influence a …

A survey of attendees at Infosecurity Europe earlier this month showed 70 percent in favour of the dictionary definition (in this case the Cambridge Dictionary) of a hacker being amended. The amendment in question being to remove 'illegality' from the definition. The current definition of a hacker is "a person who is skilled in the use of computer systems, often one who illegally obtains access to private computer systems". So what do you reckon, DaniWebbers? Is it time that hacker was reclaimed entirely (rather than relying upon black and white labels) and if so what word should replace it as …

Businesses all over the world are trying to figure out how to make the most of their digital marketing campaigns. The rise of influencer marketing is quite significant, and many celebrities that charge hundreds of thousands of dollars per Instagram post.

Hi DW. Well I'm very much interested in the data protection and also giving the best privacy to the public where we protect your passwords. I've seen something that Firefox had introduced to their browsers with also their Apps. This is called LockWise which is a tool to sync your passwords with your other devices. Now as we are in the 4IR I personally think that such information shouldn't be shared purely with other devices because what will happen when you are not in front of those devices? Worst of them all we all know that browsers don't encrypts the …

For those very new to this area, please google SIM SWAP and discover a very nasty security issue with all phones we use today. At first glance the new security researcher might think I'm exaggerating. Do your own research and tell me you don't find this to be one of the most foul, nasty exploits I've seen in years. This exploit was recently used to highjack a writer's phone at https://www.zdnet.com/article/sim-swap-horror-story-ive-lost-decades-of-data-and-google-wont-lift-a-finger/ His case is still developing with loss of accounts, tax returns he stored on the Clouds, and a 25,000USD Bitcoin purchase. And we're not talking thousands of dollars in …

I have a question for those who are looking for bugs and vulnerabilities for money. How are you looking for customers? Is it freelance or a permanent job or a hobby? I found one blockchain project that offers to find vulnerabilities for money. I will post the text of their proposal, if the administration does not mind: *In order to improve the security of the program code, we announce the beginning of bug-hunting. Anyone who finds a new critical bug (vulnerability) will get 100 000 TERA. Bug should be reported confidentially to progr76@gmail.com or telegram @progr76 TERA Foundation: https://terafoundation.org* What …

Living in California, I periodically need to log into my computer that's back in my home in New York. Not that often, typically just a couple times a year. But today, when attempting to connect, I got an error message saying, "The remote TeamViewer is running an old version which is out of date. Therefore, you cannot connect ot this Version anymore." Soooo, firstly, why is TeamViewer not backwards compatible?! Secondly, I haven't updated TeamViewer on my local computer either anytime recently, so both local and remote computers should be running versions of TeamViewer that were released roughly at the …
