Hey everyone - Information breaches are common nowadays. It almost seems like we have grown immune to them. They can happen for a variety of different reasons and can happen on purpose or inadvertently. I want to talk about one that I stumbled across while pursuing through news articles, because I think it raises some interesting points.

Hey everyone - This is a little dated at this point, but I thought it would be interesting to talk about the first piece of Linux ransomware to make news. Ransomware is somewhat old news on Windows, but this is the first time I have heard about it on Linux. I suppose there is a first time for everything. Let's discuss it.

Hey everyone - This week, I wanted to talk a little bit about an article I recently read in the Washington Post about the inherent "insecurity" of the Linux kernel due to the attitude of its creator, Linus Torvalds. I think the article is worth a read because I believe it touches on an interesting concept that I believe is one of the underpinnings of information security: the security of a system should not be determined by each of its individual parts, but rather, the security of those parts as a whole.
