Killer Petey or Pedrinho Matador at his Youtube channel

Pedrinho Matador or Pedro Rodrigues Filho is one of the biggest serial killers in Brazil. The man is responsible for the death of more than 100 people who, according to him, were classified as “bad people”. Pedro had a code of conduct that defined who was good or bad and it was accordingly that he also decided who would live and who would die. Not only did he decide, as he did with his own hands. In his body, he tattooed countless words of hate, such as “kill for pleasure,” “revenge,” and “hate.” He defined himself as a murderer with no remorse and believed thatRead More →

The WannaCrypt alert.

A cyber weapon believed to have escaped the control of the United States’ top-secret National Security Agency appears to be behind a massive wave of cyber ransom attacks Friday in scores of countries around the globe that researchers said was the largest computer hack ever. Computers seized in the attack flashed a message on a black screen with red letters: “Oops, your important files are encrypted.” Users were then unable to access their files and told to pay a ransom to regain access to their machines. A Czech security research firm, Avast Software, said it had detected more than 57,000 computers frozen by the attack.Read More →

The movies and the news show that it is relatively common for prisoners to secretly dig tunnels to escape. This case, however, is very unconventional because it involves prisoners who have built two computers in jail, with access to the internet and all. The event took place at the Marion Correctional Institution in the state of Ohio in the United States. Suspicions began even in July 2015, thanks to the identification of some computers connected to the prison network that extrapolated the daily limit of Internet consumption. A report released this week from the Ohio Office of the Inspector General detailed the actions of ScottRead More →

The new Mcafee logo.

Global security software company Intel Security has gone back to its original title as McAfee as part of a larger rebrand. Originally founded back in 1987, McAfee took its name from its founder and former software tycoon John McAfee. However, McAfee’s scandalous personal life resulted in the company being renamed Intel Security in 2014. This is all apparently water under the bridge now though, as the company is returning to its original name. Accompanying this rebrand is a new logo design and wordmark that retains elements from the old regime. The new website is already up with the new logo and new slogan: Together isRead More →

Pyotr Levashov seated wearing blue shirt.

US Justice Department is working to dismantle the Kelihos botnet, a global computer network of tens of thousands of infected computers that sent millions of spam emails, harvested users’ login credentials and installed various malicious software every year. The Russian computer programmer allegedly in control of the massive botnet, Pyotr Levashov, was arrested in Spain over the weekend. Officials said the Kelihos botnet collected user credentials by intercepting network traffic and scouring infected computers for usernames and passwords. The stolen data was then used to further Levashov’s spamming operation that was advertised on multiple online criminal forums. Levashov was also known to rent out theRead More →

WordPress is an open and free Content Management System (CMS) used by more than top 10 million websites as of 2016. Robots crawl WordPress sites looking for the wp-admin login page. Once internet robots find it, they attack the site in the simplest way possible – by continually hammering at the login page until they get in. The bot cycles through common passwords, obscure passwords and everything in between. It takes longer for the bot to gain access depending on the complexity of the username and password. So, the first step in website security is arming yourself with secure login information. These brute-force attacks eat upRead More →
