Undercover Boss – they will never make a show about me

I don’t really watch much TV, but one of my favorite reality shows is Undercover Boss.  This is a show where they take some honcho, give him/her a wig, glasses, perhaps a fake nose and then have them dress down as an entry level worker to go undercover and discover what it is really like to work at their own company...

When Disaster Strikes

Our researchers have discovered a new zero-day exploit in Adobe Flash used in malvertisement attacks. The exploit affects the most recent version of Adobe Flash, and is now identified as CVE-2015-0313. Our initial analysis suggests that this might have been executed through the use of the Angler Exploit Kit, due to similarities in obfuscation techniques and infection chains.
