A selection of this week’s more interesting vulnerability disclosures and cyber security news. One of the interesting breaches this weeks concerns leaks of biometrics, OK, according to the report only a few were possibly configured for finger prints, but nevertheless biometric data in some form could well have been taken. What do those people do?

IoT issues again come bubbling to the surface:

I’m not sure how viable it would be to configure a group of robot vacuum cleaners to suddenly go rogue against their human masters, I think the most likely from previous attempts, breaches of car systems offer an easier target and potentially greater risk to human safety. I look forward to being disturbingly corrected!

Ah, the human element. We can (in OpsSec) employ the most amazing technology, however it all comes tumbling down when someone decides to plug something in or click on something they shouldn’t. No matter what environment we have to encourage no blame, people will still want to hide their mistakes, more likely to save them looking like fools. Its very very hard…
