On September 9, 2020, at 11:00 am Brussels time, ENISA Executive Director Juhan Lepassaar and Kaspersky CEO Eugene Kaspersky will be the keynote speakers at a high-level webcast — the second of its kind — on Europe’s cybersecurity policy.

Many developers tend to forget that while open source licenses are free, they still come with a set of terms and conditions that users must abide by.

In May 2020, Kaspersky technologies prevented an attack on a South Korean company by a malicious script for Internet Explorer. Closer analysis revealed that the attack used a previously unknown full chain that consisted of two zero-day exploits: a remote code execution exploit for Internet Explorer and an elevation of privilege exploit for Windows. Unlike a previous full chain that we discovered, used in Operation WizardOpium, the new full chain targeted the latest builds of Windows 10, and our tests demonstrated reliable exploitation of Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 10 build 18363 x64.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is currently tracking an unknown malicious cyber actor who is spoofing the Small Business Administration (SBA) COVID-19 loan relief webpage via phishing emails.
