InfoSec News

Well, the word is out. Morto, the latest Internet worm has arrived and clearly has been working itself around for a while.
After reading the write ups available, it would appear for now, that the network flood is the most substantial consequence for any network with infected hosts.
Prevention looks to be easy. I would not suspect any of our readers to fall victim to this worm, as it appears to take advantage of systems not complying to best practices. Though that is not a proven fact yet, so stay vigilant.
The Microsoft Malware Prevention Center has a detailed write up on Mortohere. [1] Check it out and feel free to send us any samples via the contact form here.
As always give us your comments and provide feedback on what is happening out there.

It was introduced in 2008 and it changed Apple's philosophy on the notebook market. It was a radical departure for Apple, getting rid of an optical drive, using a battery that users couldn't replace, offering a solid-state drive for the first time in an Apple laptop. Like many devices, it had to be seen and held to be really appreciated.
