The week in security: Mobile app security, board oversight questioned as cybercrime guile grows

David Braue (CSO Online) | Sept. 8, 2015
Company boards need to be subjected to the same sort of security controls as everyone else, experts are warning, since those boards represent a high proportion of corporate crime.

They're also getting better at hiding their tracks, with warnings that malware hiding in a computer's graphics processing unit (GPU) can be difficult to detect and another tactic taking local DNS hijacking to a new level. And they're getting bolder all the time, with a hacking group called Lizard Squad claiming responsibility for a DDoS attack on the UK National Crime Agency's Web site as revenge for the arrest of six of the team's customers. Little wonder that DDoS-fighting vendors like Nexusguard, which has redoubled its presence in the Australian market, are finding demand soaring.
