Updated SkyBox risk and compliance management solutions
Posted on 09 November 2012.
Skybox Security added new capabilities to Firewall Assurance 6.5 and Network Assurance 6.5 that make it easier for security managers to see, analyze and take action to secure the network infrastructure against potential cyber threats.


Firewall Assurance 6.5 includes a new graphical firewall map that enables administrators to see each firewall and all connecting interfaces, allowing checks and changes of zones and interface properties within the map. Dynamically created and automatically updated, the firewall map allows administrators to interact with the firewall architecture for greater understanding and analysis of interactions among security devices.

Network Assurance 6.5 introduces a new capability to overlay identified host vulnerabilities on a visual network map, allowing security managers to quickly spot potential exploits from an attacker’s point of view. Customers use Network Assurance’s Access Analyzer technology to check new application connectivity requests for unintended risks and identify less-risky alternatives before a change is made.

Both products are available for customer download, as is Risk Control 6.5 with Vulnerability Detector, a next-generation solution for vulnerability management that detects network vulnerabilities in an automated and non-disruptive manner, without an active scan, as well as security metrics to measure the magnitude of the attack surface and track effectiveness of remediation tasks.

Cloned, booby-trapped Dark Web sites steal bitcoins, login credentials

Apart from being a way for dissidents and journalists to do their business without being spotted and identified by "the powers that be", the Dark Web is also a place where criminals sell and buy illegal wares and services and, apparently, where they also get robbed by scammers.
