Today’s Cyberthreats: Spam Slumber Ends, Harvard Hacked
Each weekday morning, TechNewsDaily’s colleagues at SecurityNewsDaily give us a roundup on what’s worrying the guardians of cyberspace. Here’s what’s happening today.
SPAM SLUMBER ENDS: The massive Rustock botnet – an army of hacked zombie computers – has awoken from its Yuletide nap and is back at work, nudging worldwide spam volumes upwards from their remarkable end-of-2010 low.
HARVARD HACKED: America’s most prestigious university has had some of its websites hacked, with visitors redirected to pages selling dodgy online goods. Nor did the tech incubators of MIT and Stanford escape similar hacks, according to a report from Zscaler.
