Threat Analysis; your attack surface.

Wireless key fobs compromised in European nations (France, Spain, and Latvia). On October 10, 2022, European authorities arrested 31 suspects across three nations. The suspects are believed to be related to a cybercrime ring that allegedly advertised an “automotive diagnostic solution” online and sent out fraudulent packages to their victims. The fraudulent packages contained malware and once installed onto the victims vehicle, the attackers were able to unlock the vehicle, start the ignition, then steal the vehicle without the physical key fob. European authorities confiscated over €1 million in criminal assets (malicious software, tools, and an online domain).

Microsoft Office 365 has a broken encryption algorithm. Microsoft Office 365 uses an encryption algorithm called “Office 365 Message Encryption” to send and receive encrypted email messages. The messages are encrypted in an Electronic Codebook (ECB). The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reported, "ECB mode encrypts plaintext blocks independently, without randomization; therefore, the inspection of any two ciphertext blocks reveals whether or not the corresponding plaintext blocks are equal". Emails can be harvested today then decrypted later for future attacks.

User Space.

Netflix crackdown on freeloaders. Netflix is testing in Argentina, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras Chile, Costa Rica and Peru different efforts to crackdown on freeloaders. The term “freeloaders” covers the multiple users sharing a single Netflix account from different locations. Netflix plans to charge an additional $3.00 - $4.00 per subaccount.

Samsung implements private blockchain to link user devices. While claiming the private blockchain, “has nothing to do with cryptomining”, the Knox Matrix security system links all your devices together in a private blockchain instead using a server based group verification system. The system, Knox Matrix, is suppose to allow devices to “manage themselves” by auto updating, caching updates for other devices then distributing the updates to other devices on the private blockchain.
