    My FF only ever showed the Punycode version of xn--80ak6aa92e which obviously isn't going to be confused for apple.
    network.IDN_show_punycode true in about:config, dunno why this isn't default but probably will be.

    I tried that Apple link in Chrome and it warned me that it was a spoof address.

    Stupid users can get one system infected, to do an entire organisation will require an exploit unless the stupid user was a domain admin.

    Reading that article, this sounds less than the typical drive-by ransomware infection, but like a rather targeted attack. It also doesn't mention "the entire organisation" to be infected, but a rather targeted 5GB data download, to ...
    "Stealing data essentially gives threat actors additional bargaining chips when it comes to dealing with companies unwilling to pay the ransom. The idea is to weaponise the hefty fines associated with GDPR violations to pressure the company into paying."
    ...which is quite an interesting "business case", I must admit.

    I am unsure how permissions work, but as long as you have write privileges at all that thing can propagate through a network without any issues. And a lot of the user accounts have shared drives part of a whole that they have write permissions to, at least in the organization I work with.

    A financial services organisation does not store its ledger in a fucking file share.

    Given Travelex have yet to report the breach to ICO, they're probably going to be fucked both ways whatever happens. I'll be surprised if they're hit with anything other than a near-maximum fine, but this will probably land in the lower €10m/2% tier rather than the higher €20m/4% tier.

    Public SHA-1 extinction has arrived https://sha-mbles.github.io/

    As computation costs continue to decrease rapidly, we evaluate that it should cost less than 10k USD to generate a chosen-prefix collision attack on SHA-1 by 2025.
    As a side note, a classical collision for SHA-1 now costs just about 11k USD.
    What's your privacy/business worth? The time it takes to test changing SHA-1 to SHA-256/3..?

    It’s almost always a dumb user clicking on something and then saying yes to big warning that comes up...

    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Seems like PGP is using it.

    The chosen prefixes correspond to headers of two PGP identity certificates with keys of different sizes, an RSA-8192 key and an RSA-6144 key. By exploiting properties of the OpenPGP and JPEG format, we can create two public keys: key A with the victim name, and key B with the attacker name and picture, such that the identity certificate containing the attacker key and picture has the same SHA-1 hash as the identity certificate containing the victim key and name. Therefore, the attacker can request a signature of his key and picture from a third party (from the Web of Trust or from a CA) and transfer the signature to key A. The signature will still be valid because of the collision, while the attacker controls key A with the name of the victim, and signed by the third party. Therefore, he can impersonate the victim and sign any document in her name.

    Completely understandable. Your technology access has been revoked. Please stop what you are doing and security will escort you off the premises. Your belongings will be mailed to you.

    Can anybody link a thing to see if my Intel system is protected and what not? The slow downs are now very noticeable after the last patch I've installed and it's doing my head in.

    Thank you.
