In further testing, we created a policy that instructed the Email and Web Security Appliance to block, for example, customer account numbers from leaving or entering our network. The McAfee appliance applied this policy correctly, even when called on to scan the interior of attachments for the offending data. Again, Barracuda lacks this capability. Barracuda, unfortunately, does not perform content inspection.

Web Security

Web Security

complex ecosystem composed of a large number of components and technologies, including HTTP protocol, web server and server-side application development technologies (e.g., CGI, PHP, ASP), web browser and client-side technologies (e.g., JavaScript, Flash). Web application built and hosted upon such a complex infrastructure faces inherent challenges posed by the features of those components and technologies and the inconsistencies among them. Current widely-used web application development and testing frameworks, on the other hand, offer limited security support. Thus secure web application development is an errorprone process and requires substantial efforts, which could be unrealistic under time-to- market pressure and for people with insufficient security skills or awareness. As a result, a high percentage of web applications deployed on the Internet are exposed to security vulnerabilities. According to a report by the Web Application Security Consortium, about 49% of the web applications being reviewed contain vulnerabilities of high risk level and more than 13% of the websites can be compromised completely automatically . A recent report reveals that over 80% of the websites on the Internet have had at least one serious vulnerability. Motivated by the urgent need for securing web applications, a substantial amount of research efforts have been devoted into this problem with a number of techniques developed for hardening web applications and mitigating the attacks. Many of these techniques make assumptions on the web technologies used in the application development and only address one particular type of security flaws; their prototypes are often implemented and evaluated on limited platforms. A practitioner may wonder whether these

E-COMMERCE AND MARKETING MANAGEMENT

E-COMMERCE AND MARKETING MANAGEMENT

We have analyzed the advancing part of e-business on the operations of makers, retailers, and administration suppliers. A system for portraying EC segments and their part in operations is put forward. For organizations that completely abuse its potential, EC offers the likelihood of leap forward changes: changes that so drastically modify client desires that they reclassify the business sector or make totally new markets. To profit from EC, firms must comprehend its potential, its segments, their own particular organizations, and the organizations of exchanging accomplices. Organizations must concentrate on solid associations and the center items and structure that make EC conceivable. They should characterize, create, and utilize the EC foundation that will enable their business to exploit new business open doors. Improvement of powerful methodologies for accomplishing upper hand through EC will be fundamental for achievement in the 21st century. EC requires generous foundation arranging. Seeking after EC objectives with underpowered equipment furnished with lacking transfer speed, badly considered programming, and no cognizant information administration system is a formula for catastrophe. Base arranging is basic to achievement. A severely outlined framework performs ineffectively, best case scenario and even from a pessimistic standpoint welcomes security issues.

Moreover, with the advanced technologies now available, it is more and more spoken about the Digital Economy (DE - Digital Economy). The basic idea is that through e- commerce one can achieve the exchange of ideas, goods, knowledge, beyond simply buying / selling of products and services. E-commerce technologies can be used to run a business using the Internet for communication, Intranet or other computer networks. The concept of virtual value is very important because it offers the possibility of digital information in the usual processes occurring in conducting business activities. One of the main goals of e-commerce strategies is to identify and encourage users of information via the Internet, giving them the necessary support. Electronic commerce offers the ability to run a business in a flexible manner that can benefit from the various opportunities as they arise.

AVG Internet Security

AVG Internet Security

AntiVirus consists of a scanning engine that guards all files, the system areas of the computer, and removable media (flash disk etc.) and scans for known viruses. Any detected virus will be blocked from taking any action, and will then be cleaned or quarantined in the Virus Vault. You do not even notice the process, as this so called resident protection runs "in the background". AntiVirus also uses heuristic scanning, where files are scanned for typical virus characteristics. This means that the AntiVirus can detect a new, unknown virus, if the new virus contains some typical characteristics of existing viruses. AVG Internet Security is also able to analyze and detect executable applications or DLL libraries that could be potentially unwanted within the system (various k inds of spyware, adware etc.). Furthermore, AntiVirus scans your system registry for suspicious entries, temporary Internet files, and allows you to treat all potentially unwanted items in the same way as any other infection. Data Safe enables you to create secure virtual vaults to store valuable or sensitive data in. The contents of a Data Safe are encrypted and protected with a password of your choice so that nobody can access it without authorization.

Internet Security Seminar

Computer security attacks cost as much as $10 billion a year. An attack can damage data integrity, confidentiality or availability. Organizations must understand the potential costs: How would incorrect data affect decision making? What will happen if confidential information is made public? What is the cost (in lost time and credibility) of interrupted service? To understand threats, organizations should ask themselves: Does the information have a dollar value? While more security equals more cost, the cost is slight compared to a single breakdown of services.

»  If the risks and consequences can be assigned monetary value, organizations will have greater ability and incentive to address cybersecurity. In particular, the private sector often seeks a business case to justify the resource expenditures needed for integrating information and communications system security into corporate risk management and for engaging partnerships to mitigate collective risk. Government can assist by considering incentive- based legislative or regulatory tools to enhance the value proposition and fostering an environment that encourages partnership.” --- President’s Cyber

Programmer Protocol for Identification and Defense of Latest Web Application Security Threats using Open Source Tools

Programmer Protocol for Identification and Defense of Latest Web Application Security Threats using Open Source Tools

Consider an example where a user visits a website and browses to the page: www.victimsite.xyz/myhomepage. Since, this is a user’s home page and it cannot be viewed before signing in so the website redirects the user to the page with URL: www.victimsite.xyz/signin?from=myhomepage. Once the user enters login credentials the website reads from the URL parameter and redirects to ‘myhomepage’ which is user’s account welcome page. Until here everything seems fine. But suppose of a situation where an attacker sends a mail to this user (this technique in terms of security is referred to as Social Engineering) containing the hyperlink with the URL: www.victimsite.xyz/signin?from=www.attackersite.abc. The user enters login details from where he/she is redirected to the attacker’s website. And the trick is that even when the user is redirected to the attacker’s page he/she has no idea about it because the malicious page looks exactly the same as his/her account’s homepage because of the phishing technique used by the hacker. The flaw here in terms of logic implementation is that the actual web application did not validate the URL parameter that is used to redirect the user. [5]

Strengthen of Cybersecurity in the Organizations: Challenges and Solutions

Strengthen of Cybersecurity in the Organizations: Challenges and Solutions

Since the invention of the Internet in 1994, the corporate world has changed significantly. It is noteworthy that the virtual environment created through the Internet has been adopted across communities to ease interactions. Technology allows users to easily communicate, share ideas, and relay information that is relevant to business functions. Therefore, companies have a duty to facilitate the use of active online systems to enhance the realization of the set objectives. The development of electronic computing and communication technology in the recent past has contributed to increased threats propagated through computer systems – both online and offline. The new class of threats has great potential to jeopardize the capacity of society in promoting internal and external order at local as well as international levels. It is noteworthy that nations are different stages in the networked society although the nature of threats and perpetrators is sometimes hard to reveal. Government players, especially within the security circles, have also been accused of using computer technology to realize socio-political goals. The social media networks have provided a variety of platforms for perpetrators to engage in information warfare and deception in a manner that brings disharmony in society. Therefore, there is a great need for society to appreciate that cyber-threats require utilization of stiffer and stringent mitigation mechanism backed by uniform laws at the international level.
