Following the Wh1t3 Rabbit - Practical Enterprise Security

Enterprise Security organizations often find themselves caught between the ever-changing needs of the agile business, and the ever-present, ever-evolving threats to that business. At the same time – all too often we security professionals get caught up in “shiny object syndrome” which leads us to spend poorly, allocate resources unwisely, and generally de-couple from the organization we’re chartered to defend. Knowing how to defend begins with knowing what you’ll be defending, why it is worth defending, and who you’ll be defending from… and therein lies the trick. This blog takes the issue of enterprise security head-on, challenging outdated thinking and bringing a pragmatic, business-aligned, beyond the tools perspective … so follow the Wh1t3 Rabbit and remember that tools alone don’t solve problems, strategic thinkers are the key.

American Honda Motor Co - Hacked, Customer Info Exposed

Alright, so Honda's web sites didn't actually get hacked, but like McDonalds they are on the receiving end of a lump of coal in their stocking for Christmas.

 

A post on Honda's "Piloteers.org" website for Honda Pilot owners hints at a data breach at a vendor maintaining a mailing list for customer of My Acura and Honda's Owner Link websites.  From the forums post, it would appear as though SilverPop, the same company that was behind the breach of email addresses and information, also included Honda  [likely this is fallout from the SilverPop hack].

How to Hack Websites

There has been a considerable amount of "hacking" lately going on.  Sites going down, content being stolen, DDoS being leveraged.  So while there are various methods of "hacking" a site I think there is one thing that ties all of this insanity together.
