Participation in the EU-wide Consent project for raising awareness on the negative impacts of pornography and obtaining the blue sticker from Av-Test for children's cybersecurity on Android, Windows and iOs devices: these are the two news items announced by Kasperky in the last hours. The Russian company therefore continues to operate at a European level despite the pressures announced by various countries to limit the range of action to Russian software for security reasons following the outbreak of the conflict in Ukraine. The first news concerns Kasperky's participation in the Consent project launched at EU level to raise awareness among young people, parents, teachers and institutions on the negative impact of pornography, to prevent all forms of gender-based violence with particular attention to sexual violence. , and hinder the effects of premature sexualization and hypersexualization among children and young people. Starting in February 2022, five partners from Spain, Italy, Sweden and Germany have joined forces to work on the project that the European Commission has chosen to support with its Citizens, Equality, Rights and Value (Cerv) program. The Consent project is developed by an international interdisciplinary team consisting of Fundacion Blanquerna, a research and training organization within the Faculty of Psychology, Education and Exercise Sciences of the Ramon Llull University - Scientific coordination and support; l'italiana Cam - Center for Listening Men Maltrattanti Onlus, NGO and program for male perpetrators of violence focused on intervening in violence against women and children by promoting work with men who act violently in emotional relationships: Conexus, non-profit NGO with gender-based violence as a main field of expertise and activity, offering intervention programs for women, children and young people and for male perpetrators; Unizon representing over 130 Swedish women's shelters, empowerment centers for young women and other support services working together for a violence-free gender equality society; Wwp-En the European network for working with domestic violence perpetrators. And last but not least Kaspersky. The second piece of news concerns the recognition by Kaspersky by AV-Test Institute, the independent German institute, of the "blue stamp" for cybersecurity relating to the Safe Kids solution for the protection of children on Android, Windows and ioS devices. "AV-Test highlighted a high level of detection of website categories and the ability to manage access to them. The results also showed a reliable level of restrictions applied to inappropriate web pages, a feature that makes the browsing of the little ones even safer ", reads the note sent by the company which highlights that Kaspersky Safe Kids managed to block altogether 90% of potentially inappropriate links on Windows and 85% on Android. The highest result among the blocked content categories was recorded in "adult content" - on Windows where 100% of the links were detected and blocked.

Everyone must be convinced that the best weapons must be adopted in a war, and not limited to the skirmishes between this and that arms manufacturer. Everyone must be convinced that the RSA public and private key encryption system is outdated and easily intercepted as we describe in other pages of this site. It is difficult to understand for those who consider it the TOP of cryptography. I remember when I was in elementary school they explained to me that the Italian alphabet was made up of 21 letters. Later it became 26 letters like the English one, with the addition of J K X Y W. Now no one remembers the 21 letter alphabet anymore. In the field of cryptography, on the other hand, people consider what they have studied to be fundamental and are opposed to any progress. It is as if the supporters of the Italian alphabet of 21 letters waged war and found subterfuges to express the letters J K X Y W. In cybersecurity, nostalgics consider themselves pundits and have brand-persuasion. But then the war is won by the hackers. Read our solutions on other pages of the site.

projects active of some information systems which are also being reactivated ". Trenord also affected The hacker attack also involved Trenord which has a ticketing system connected to that of Trenitalia. "We had to block the sale through the counters, while the sale continued digitally - explained the CEO, Marco Piuri - Tickets can be purchased at the automatic ticket machines at the station. Today we are following the situation to limit any contagion, but from tomorrow we aim to be able to resume normally. Then it is up to Ferrovie dello Stato to understand how they manage to solve the problem ”. You post chats with hackers by mistake On a channel of the Twitch social network and then on a well-known Telegram channel, the credentials for accessing a confidential chat were published in which to discuss the terms of the ransom requested to get back the data blocked with the company. Credentials appeared briefly but allowed many to chat with hackers. The Agi was able to view the messages. In one of these messages a user asks hackers in English "but did you attack us because Italy supports Ukraine?", In another an operator asks using Italian instead "I would like to know how to recover private data. Thanks. I don't know English "or another writes" You're 30 years old making ransomware! Be ruined, recover ”or“ Pray to Our Lady of Kiev ”. All seasoned with links to unlikely sites, clear-cut sentences "well burn the data, we will not pay" or "you hacked the wrong company". One of the few serious messages seems to be that of the ransom demand of the hacker group: at 13.34 they write "If you pay within the next 3 days it is 5 million dollars in Bitcoin, after this deadline it will be 10 million". Request then revised at 21.26 when the hacker gang wrote “Thank the person who posted the access data to this chat. From this point on, the price (of the redemption, ed) rises to 10 million euros ". The hacker attack Yesterday morning FS announced that it had detected on the corporate IT network "elements that could lead to phenomena related to a cryptolocker infection", a cyberattack that blocks computer systems in order to extort a ransom. The cryptolocker is a form of ransomware that encrypts the victim's data and then demands a payment for the decryption. According to a recent Trend Micro report, ransomware attacks in 2020 increased by 150% year on year with a doubling of the average amount of extortion. A trend that puts victim organizations at risk not only from a financial point of view but also from a reputational point of view: the average cost of a breach exceeds 4.2 million dollars, but the figure can reach higher levels if ransomware is involved.
