Following the path of Symantec, Microsoft and 3Com, SonicWall has become the latest security vendor to add e-mail security to its portfolio. VARs catering to the security needs of SMB customers should pay special attention.

Fraudsters are using a new technique to keep their spoofed Web sites up and running even as authorities pull the plug, a security expert said this week.

According to RSA Security's Naftali Bennett, the senior vice president of its Cyota anti-fraud division, some phishers have started using a tactic called "smart site redirection" to stay a step ahead of the law.

"The goal of the phisher is to keep his spoofed site alive as long as possible," said Bennett. The

The unfolding debit card scam that rocked Citibank this week is far from over, an analyst said Thursday as she called this first-time-ever mass theft of PINs "the worst consumer scam to date."

Wednesday, Citibank confirmed that an ongoing fraud had forced it to reissue debit cards and block PIN-based transactions for users in Canada, Russia, and the U.K.

But Citibank is only the tip of the iceberg, said Avivah Litan, a Gartner research vice president. The scam -- and

An anti-virus vendor warned Tuesday that two new worms spreading on Microsoft's and America Online's instant messaging networks delete files and leave systems open to hijacking.

Symantec posted alerts for the "Hotmatom" and "Maniccum" worms, and ranked both as a level "2" threat. The Cupertino, Calif.-based security company uses a 1 through 5 scale to label worms, viruses, and Trojans.

Hotmatom, said Symantec, is a Spanish-language worm transmitted over Microsoft's MSN instant messaging network. A message arrives, seemingly from a

Symantec's out-of-court settlement with an adware maker is a loss for users, an anti-spyware researcher said this week.

Friday, Feb. 24, the Cupertino, Calif. security company announced that it had dismissed its lawsuit against browser and e-mail toolbar maker Hotbar.com, Inc. Last June, Symantec filed a zero-dollar suit against the New York company, saying then that it was seeking a legal ruling that would affirm the position that Hotbar's programs "are indeed adware and can be treated as computer security risks."

Sixty years after the end of World War II, a network of several thousand PCs has cracked a message enciphered with the famous Enigma machine.
The M4 Message Breaking Project, started by Stefan Krah, a German amateur cryptographer, in January, took on three messages intercepted by British code-breakers during WWII, but never cracked by the famous cryptology facility at Bletchley Park.

The code breakers at Bletchley included computing pioneer Alan Turing and used a combination of human intelligence, guesswork, and

Another bullying Bagle worm appeared Friday, security companies warned, although this one threatens to bring on the lawyers, not the police.
Bagle.do, said U.K.-based Sophos, spreads in e-mails with subject lines such as "Call to your lawer [sic] immidiately [sic]" and "Lawsuit against you." The text of the worm-carrying message varies, but all versions cite some legal beef, ranging from identity theft to "spamming" faxes to the sender's machine.

The attached file, with names like "lawsuit.exe" and "explanation.exe," purport to
