An Atlas of Cyberspaces This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces. These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of the global communications networks and vast online information resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic interest. Some of the maps you will see in the Atlas of Cyberspaces will appear familiar, using the cartographic conventions of real-world maps, however, many of the maps are much more abstract representations of electronic spaces, using new metrics and grids. For more information on the geographies of the Internet, the Web and Cyberspaces, check out The Geography of Cyberspace Directory. (© Copyright - Martin Dodge, 2007.

L’attaque de l’année ! Même dans des situations où on pense que son système de sécurité est infaillible, les hackers font preuve d'une imagination sans limite. Dernier exemple avec la société Netragard qui a pratiqué un audit chez l'un de ses clients, dont le système informatique était hyper sérieux, avec tout un tas de règles très strictes sur l'utilisation des réseaux sociaux, des téléphones, et sur l'accès physique aux ordinateurs. Et pourtant, Netraguard a réussi sans se déplacer à avoir accès à un ordinateur de l'entreprise (et donc à l'intranet et à tout le reste...). Comment ? Grâce à une souris "Cheval de Troie" qui a été modifiée pour contenir un micro contrôleur s'activant 60 secondes après que la souris soit branchée sur l'ordinateur, et capable de "taper" des choses aux clavier... Sans avoir besoin d'Autorun (qui de toute façon était désactivé), le micro controlleur Teensy a alors pu exécuter un malware fait maison, et stockée dans une mémoire flash placée à l'intérieur de la souris.

Brutforce with ubuntu cluster Botnet TDL4 Botnet TDL4 Cette news m'a fasciné... La société Kaspersky a mis au jour un réseau de botnet du nom de TDL4 (ou TDSS) de plus de 4,5 millions de machines. D'après l'éditeur d'antivirus, TDL4 a véritablement été conçu pour régner en maitre sur ses machines grâce à : Un système d'affiliation qui permet de rémunérer les gens qui installent (volontairement) ce malware sur les machines d'autres personnes (pas vraiment au courant). Bref, un beau petit joujou qui fait mal et qui est réparti dans les pays de la manière suivante : TDL4 est utilisé pour collecter des données personnelles (accès à des serveurs, n° de carte de crédit, vol d'identité...etc) mais aussi pour lancer des attaques Ddos...etc. Pfiou !

Princeton study: Nighttime images help track disease from the sky Public release date: 8-Dec-2011 [ Print | E-mail Share ] [ Close Window ] Contact: Morgan Kellymgnkelly@princeton.edu 609-258-5729Princeton University Normally used to spot where people live, satellite images of nighttime lights can help keep tabs on the diseases festering among them, too, according to new research. Princeton University-led researchers report in the journal Science Dec. 9 that nighttime-lights imagery presents a new tool for pinpointing disease hotspots in developing nations by revealing the population boom that typically coincides with seasonal epidemics. The team used nighttime images of the three largest cities in the West African nation of Niger to correlate seasonal population growth with the onset of measles epidemics during the country's dry season, roughly from September to May. Migratory populations are notoriously difficult to track, Bharti said, which can amplify the difficulty and complexity of carrying out large-scale vaccinations. [ Print | E-mail

Deep Web Research 2010 Bots, Blogs and News Aggregators is a keynote presentation that I have been delivering over the last several years, and much of my information comes from the extensive research that I have completed over the years into the "invisible" or what I like to call the "deep" web. The Deep Web covers somewhere in the vicinity of 1 trillion pages of information located through the world wide web in various files and formats that the current search engines on the Internet either cannot find or have difficulty accessing. The current search engines find about 200 billion pages at the present time of this writing. In the last several years, some of the more comprehensive search engines have written algorithms to search the deeper portions of the world wide web by attempting to find files such as .pdf, .doc, .xls, ppt, .ps. and others. This Deep Web Research 2010 article is divided into the following sections: ARTICLES, PAPERS, FORUMS, AUDIOS AND VIDEOS (Current and Historical) Metadata?
