Security cameras for your security

A computer security instructor says he's discovered that hackers have been able to infiltrate standard security cameras and then use that hardware to mine for bitcoin, the anonymous digital cryptocurrency.
Johannes Ullrich, a teacher at the computer security SANS Technology Institute, announced last Friday that he found malicious software on Hikvision digital video recorders (DVRs), which are used to record video from surveillance cameras. The virus seems to spread from device to device onto each machine it connects with on the network in question. Along with replicating, though, it also uses the closed-circuit television operators to mine for bitcoin, sending those profits back to the virus’ creator.

home automation los angeles

Home automation is a fast growing trend. Using Home automation devices are installed so  that they can control home appliances. Home automation not only helps us to control our home appliances, but it is more energy efficient as well.There are few ways given below to use home automation to manage our home appliances and reduce our energy cost.

Home Automation Lights

In home automation Lights are the most frequently automated appliance in the home. By now, most home-owners have experienced an automated light in one way or another. Home Automation Lights include motion lights and remote controlled lights. Using home security system and home automation system we can control all of our lights online or using a smartphone, whether we are at home or not. Our lights can react based on our security system.

Automating Thermostats

By installing a “smart” thermostat we can easily manage the temperature in our home. We can automate time for temperature, or it can react according to security system settings. A Smart thermostat is really useful for vacation homes and primary residences.


 You can install new “smart” door locks that you can control with a smartphone, keypad, or even your fingerprint. We can also integrate door locks with a home security system and other automation devices.


While A/V automation is less widely used and/or integrated with home security it is still an option for many home-owners. We can use that kind of system to control televisions, speakers, and this can give a whole new entertainment experience to our home.

Security Cameras Los Angeles

If you already have a security system, it may seem redundant to have security cameras. After all, if a security system is supposed to keep out intruders in the first place, ideally, you wouldn’t have to use cameras to catch any burglars. Unfortunately, sometimes intruders do break into your home, even when you have a security system. Sometimes you forget to arm your system but your camera’s on, or sometimes thieves don’t realize you have a silent system, or sometimes thieves are just plain arrogant. There are also many other uses for security cameras, besides catching burglars, such as seeing who’s at your door or checking up on kids or pets. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits and uses of security cameras.

Gmail Security

A team of researchers, including an assistant professor at the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering, have identified a weakness believed to exist in Android, Windows and iOS mobile operating systems that could be used to obtain personal information from unsuspecting users. They demonstrated the hack in an Android phone.

The researchers tested the method and found it was successful between 82 percent and 92 percent of the time on six of the seven popular apps they tested. Among the apps they easily hacked were Gmail, CHASE Bank and H&R Block. Amazon, with a 48 percent success rate, was the only app they tested that was difficult to penetrate.
The paper, "Peeking into Your App without Actually Seeing It: UI State Inference and Novel Android Attacks," will be presented Friday, Aug. 22 at the 23rd USENIX Security Symposium in San Diego. Authors of the paper are Zhiyun Qian, of the Computer Science and Engineering Department at UC Riverside; Z. Morley Mao, an associate professor at the University of Michigan; and Qi Alfred Chen, a Ph.D. student working with Mao.

#WIFI networks are becoming essential nowadays and they are widely spreading in Cafes, Malls, Airports, etc. Thus, WIFI #security is one of the top topics in security and #penetration testing conferences these days.
One common WIFI attack is the #Caffe #Latte attack which hackers use against #WEP keys. It allows you to retrieve the WEP key belonging to the Wi-Fi network by employing a cheating client. The attack allows the attacker to circumvent firewall protection and attack the laptop or set up a "Man-In-The-Middle" attack and eavesdrop the victim's online activities.
