The Heartbleed vulnerability continues to sap the life force from various sectors, and it looks like the mobile applications space is not immune. New analysis has revealed that approximately 150 million downloads of Android apps contain Open SSL libraries vulnerable to Heartbleed, a larger number than originally expected.

Earlier in the month, FireEye scanned more than 54,000 Google Play apps (each with more than 100,000 downloads), and found that there were at least 220 million downloads affected by the Heartbleed vulnerability. According to researchers at the firm, the majority of these apps are games, however many are also office-based applications, potentially endangering the enterprise.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
