As I reported in a previous post, the hacked SnapChat collection known as the Snappening contains very few nude photos, and most of those do not show an identifiable face. I was asked to quantify this, so I took a random sample of 1,000 photos from the collection and categorized them. To respect the privacy […]
The media are full of reports of a vast leak of private photos and videos that were sent using the SnapChat application. However, it’s looking increasingly likely that they have been taken in by a scammer, and that the actual leak consists of a handful of videos, very few of them compromising. Starting on Thursday, […]

Cloudmark CTO Neil Cook discusses the trends in messaging abuse over the last 12 months including the recent spike in fraud and phishing attacks and how the OTT market is now coming under attack.
Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure is critical to both the Internet and most private networks, however, many recent events have shown that it is vulnerable to attack, affecting millions of users when it goes down. There are tools and processes enterprises and service providers can use to protect DNS infrastructure but real protection is difficult to achieve due to the scope of the problem. This webinar provides a detailed look at the threats to DNS infrastructure and how those threats can be mitigated.
This webinar discusses how Application-to-person (A2P) SMS has increasingly become a key method for organizations to communicate with their customers. This has been driven by the ubiquity of mobile phones and the universality of SMS. Unfortunately, this has also lead to a massive growth in messages being sent through illegitimate routes that bypass the operators’ billing systems. This is commonly referred to as grey routes carrying grey traffic, and is a tactic commonly used by third-party aggregators to boost their own profitability. The result is lost revenue for mobile operators who often do not have visibility and control of messages on their network.
This webinar analyzes the mobile security threat landscape and how emerging technology will impact mobile network security. We outlined strategies for attack mitigation and discussed how top tier mobile operators are successfully protecting their network and subscribers. Additionally, Andrew Bowen from Everything Everywhere discussed how EE is teaming with other UK operators to combat messaging threats and shared his perspective on the growing problem of botnet attacks.
