Security vendor Malwarebytes has reported that a new variation of an old password stealing Trojan is out in the wild, but all is not as it may seem. Notably, this particular Trojan is signed with an apparently 'genuine' digital certificate that authenticates the file. Which rather prompts the question: "say what?" Or to put it another way, if the billion-dollar digital certificate and encryption market can't actually guarantee squat, then what's the point of it? The Trojan, it appears, evades many security barriers by a system of spoofing that involves the criminal enterprise behind the scheme setting up a bogus …

Last week, Google's [URL="http://www.google.com/corporate/execs.html#marissa"]Marissa Mayer [/URL]and [URL="http://www.google.com/corporate/execs.html#eric"]Eric Schmidt [/URL]appeared in separate interviews on the [URL="http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/10129"]Charlie Rose [/URL]show, and not surprisingly they spoke in one voice where privacy and trust were concerned.

PR, marketing and sales staff were also low on the list. At the other end of the trust scale, the personnel and legal departments along with the boss's secretary were flying high. The most trustworthy were considered to be IT staff. But are they really? The fact that the survey was conducted amongst office workers consisting predominantly of IT personnel may well have influenced the results, of course. But interestingly, the IT crowd …

Surveys, I often find, manage to arrive at the most unexpected of conclusions. This could be down to the questions that are asked being worded in such a way to solicit a politically or commercially acceptable result. It could be down to the fact that people do not tell the truth (has the average man really slept with 423 women, and if so why has the average woman only slept with 4 men?) However, I suspect the real reason, more often than not, is simply that I try to second-guess what the public are thinking: and that is always a …
