How To Avoid Getting Your DNS Hacked Like The New York Times

first_imgWhen the New York Times’ website fell prey to a high profile hack Tuesday, you may have wondered how a huge, multimillion dollar corporation could get hacked in the first place. From there, it’s not that far to another terrifying idea: “If the NYT didn’t stand a chance, what hope is there for my own website?”See also: New York Times, Twitter, Other Sites Reportedly Hacked by Syrian Electronic ArmyThe NYT attack actually targeted the site’s records in the Internet’s DNS, or Domain Name System. Since computers speak in numbers and we speak in letters, DNS is what converts any IP address to a easy-to-remember address like nytimes.com. DNS hacking is a vulnerability that every website faces. (In the NYT’s case, the attackers apparently changed its DNS records so that visitors to the newspaper instead ended up on a Syrian website.)Fortunately, if you run a small-to-medium-sized website, chances are hackers don’t consider you much of a target. According to Matthew Prince, CEO of CloudFlare and one of the key players in yesterday’s hack cleanup, you’re probably okay for now. “I wouldn’t run out and drop everything to secure my DNS,” he said. “But it would not surprise me if DNS becomes an additional vulnerability that criminals start to go after more often. I would definitely put it on my to-do list before the end of 2013.”Here’s what Prince suggests you do to keep your online presence secure. Choose A Registrar With A Secure ReputationIf you have a domain name, you probably purchased it through a domain name registrar, like GoDaddy, Bluehost, Dreamhost, or in the NYT’s case, Melbourne IT. You log into the registrar to make changes to your domain name and manage your site files. It goes without saying that you need to have a strong password on your registrar account to keep it safe. What happened yesterday was no ordinary password crack, but, as Prince said, something that was “as bad as DNS attacks can get.”“What was really spooky about yesterday’s attack was that the attacker appears to have compromised Melbourne IT, the actual registrar that registered all the domains,” said Prince. “If you think of the DNS as the white pages, it’s as if the attacker had actually hacked into the publisher of the white pages themselves and was able to change to any phone number anywhere in the entire directory.”Unfortunately, Melbourne IT did have a reputation as one of the most secure registrars in the world, which is why the Times, Twitter, the Huffington Post, and others trust it. So when this first step doesn’t work, there are other precautions you can take. Set Up A Registry LockThe New York Times bore the brunt of Tuesday’s attack. Why wasn’t Twitter as much of a target? “We speculate Twitter wasn’t affected the way the New York Times was yesterday because it had a registry lock in place,” said Prince.A registry lock is a restrictive measure on your registrar account that makes it far more difficult for anyone to make changes to it. There are numerous additional steps required before you can take even mundane actions on your account, like simply transferring your domain name to another registrar. For most people, a registry lock is too much of a hassle. But if you’ve been a hacking target in the past or feel you have an elevated risk, it may be worth it. Ask About Additional Security MeasuresYou may not realize how many security features your registrar offers. Prince suggests that if you ask directly, you may be surprised. “If the ability to turn on additional security isn’t obvious, sometimes you have to actually request it from your registrar,” he said. “Almost every registrar today can give you additional security measures to put in place if you ask for it.”You might want to consider setting up two factor authentication, a process in which your login requires not only a password, but another verifying factor. For example, if your registrar is GoDaddy, it can set up a system where the site texts a code to your cell phone that you must input before you can log in. Only the person who knows your password and is in possession of your cell phone can log in, (presumably just you).Other measures include IP address dependent login, in which a user can only access your account from a particular IP address—for example, the one at your office.“What you sacrifice with these alternate measures is flexibility and the ability to make quick changes to your account,” said Prince. “But if you’re a fast rising start-up, a media publication, or another a target more likely to be attacked, that’s the price to pay to protect online identity.”Photo by Danny Oosterveer on Flickr Tags:#security How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

What to expect from the Amazon smartphone

first_imgIn this file photo, Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of Amazon, introduces the Amazon Kindle Fire during an event. Photo by AP.Today in Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will take the stage in an event in Seattle. Normally, at such yearly events the eccentric Aamzon mogul announces new Kindle based hardware, including the blockbuster e-readers and the Android (Fire OS) based Kindle Fire tablets. Things could be a little different today. Many expect a smartphone. Reports about this mythical smartphone have been leaking for months. This device reportedly has been in the works for 5 years at Amazon’s LAB126 according to Brad Stone, who also recently published “The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the age of Amazon”. A lot is expected off the device and some consider it will be the most game changing mobile device since the original iPhone. We take a look at what to expect from the device. Camera technology The biggest deal about the device is the camera technology that it employs. The phone will sport four cameras in addition to the standard front and rear cameras to facilitate a 3D effect on the screen. While 3D screen have there before on phones like the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D, Amazon’s phone will not have the parallax issues that plagued previous smartphones. The six camera will be able to track the users head to produce a 3D effect on a normal LCD screen.According to Bloomberg, one of the biggest inspirations for such a screen was a demo by now Google employee Johnny Chung Lee, who used the Nintendo Wii remote and custom software to create head tracking technology. Rumours suggest the six cameras on the Amazon phone will allow for similar functionality.advertisement User interface Like Amazon’s Kindle tablets, the phone will almost certainly run on the forked version of Android that Amazon calls the Fire OS. But according to BGR, the phone will have a custom user interface that will leverage the 3D effects. The phone will have a number of 3D effects complimented by a many motion gestures that will let the user navigate the menu’s and will also let the user pull up more information by tilting the device.SpecsIn terms of basic specs, the rumoured device will not have exactly cutting edge specs. It will only have a 720p 4.7-inch screen, 2GB of RAM and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Some of the latest Android phones have massive QHD screens and have the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, so comparatively the Amazon phone will be little short on ammunition.However, this still is a formidable package, which would do a late 2013 flagship proud, so there will be ample firepower on tab. Amazon will obviously banking on its unique 3D screen and interface for a very unique experience.As for the cameras on the front and back, the Amazon phone has been reported to have a 13-megapixel camera on the back and a low resolution front facing camera.On the face of it, the 3D functionality looks quite novel, but if Amazon can show compelling software experiences that tap into the capabilities of its new hardware, then one could be really looking an interesting device.last_img read more
