Our Miserable 21st Century

Any professional intelligence officer would attest that the Bond movies were a highly distorted, cartoonish portrayal of the real world of espionage, with their high-speed car chases, exotic weaponry, casual executions, and impossibly sexy women. But the two worlds of espionage—the real one and the cinematic version—actually collided in the person of Joseph Katz, whose name appears nowhere in the Spy Museum. Katz was one of the more elusive and obscure Americans who worked as a Soviet spy in the 1940s—and he played a significant role in the production of several Bond movies. This is the story of Joseph...

TeamSpy Malware Reappears In a Spam Campaign

(pc-Google Images) Heimdal Security researchers spotted a new spam campaign carrying the TeamSpy data-stealing malware. The attackers exploit the TeamViewer remote access tool to grant an attacker full access to a compromised device.

First, an email from a spoofed address will get the victim to download a zip file, which, once opened, triggers the .exe file inside to be activated. The TeamSpy...
