  • Information Security Bulletin, Pharming
  • Information on a new method hackers can use to get your personal information via your wireless router.
  • In order to attack your system, a malicious script needs the username and password that controls access to the router's configuration. Way too many people leave these set to the default values, which are readily available at web sites like www.routerpasswords.com . By simply switching to a strong password you derail this attack.
  • How you ask? Just enter the router's IP address (often, but check the docs) in the browser's address bar and log in with the current username and password. Don't know it? Then that database web site will be handy! Set a new, strong password for the router, and store a copy of the password in a safe place. You'll feel much safer, and you didn't spend a cent


Cyber Security Corner

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework is a set of guidelines for organizations to manage and reduce cybersecurity risks. The framework was first published in 2014 and has since undergone several updates. Here are the major updates to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework:

  1. Version 1.1: In 2018, NIST released an updated version of the Cybersecurity Framework, which added new sections on supply chain risk management and self-assessing cybersecurity risk, as well as updates to existing sections on access controls, threat intelligence, and vulnerability management.

  2. Version 1.1 Revision 1: In 2019, NIST released a revision to version 1.1, which made minor changes to the framework's terminology and introduced new subcategories for the "Identify" function.

  3. Version 1.1 Revision 2: In 2020, NIST released another revision to version 1.1, which clarified the language around threat modeling and vulnerability management and introduced new subcategories for the "Detect" function.

  4. Version 1.1 Revision 3: In 2021, NIST released the latest revision to version 1.1, which updated the language around identity and access management, clarified the role of third-party service providers in the framework, and introduced new subcategories for the "Respond" and "Recover" functions.

Overall, these updates reflect the evolving cybersecurity landscape and NIST's commitment to keeping the framework up-to-date and relevant for organizations of all sizes and industries.

See what's New? Some noted changes are expanding the audience to orgs beyond those defined as a part of critical national infrastructure like  utilities, transportation, finance, and telecoms. These include small businesses and higher education institutions. An increase in international collaboration is also in the new framework in an effort to encourage more countries to adopt it.
