This module is part of what is referred to as spyware tools ‘legal’, namely RCS aka Galileo, which was developed by the Italian company, Hacking Team.

List of victims in the above study, conducted by Kaspersky Lab together with the Citizen Lab, including activists and human rights defenders, journalists and politicians.

Kaspersky Lab has conducted a variety of different security approaches to find a server command and control (C & C) Galileo worldwide.

For the identification process, Kaspersky Lab’s experts rely on specific indicators and data connectivity obtained by reversing engineering (reverse engineering) existing sample.

In a recent analysis, Kaspersky Lab researchers claimed to map the presence of more than 320 RCS C & C servers in more than 40 countries. The majority of these servers located in the United States, Kazakhstan, Ecuador, England and Canada.

Related to these new findings, Sergey Golovanov, Principal Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab, stating that the existence of this server in a country does not mean they are used by law enforcement in the country.

However, it makes sense for the user to operate the server RCS C & C in the location that they control – because in the place of legal problems between the state and the seizure of servers small risk.

Implants Mobile RCS

Although it has previously been known that the mobile Trojan for iOS and Android from Hacking Team exists, previously no really can identify, or knowing use in the attack.

Kaspersky Lab experts have researched malware RCS for two years. Earlier this year they were able to identify specific sample from the same mobile module with other RCS malware configuration profile in their collection.

In a recent study, a new variant of the sample was also obtained from the victim through KSN network Kaspersky Lab cloud. In addition, Kaspersky Lab’s experts also work closely with Morgan Marquis-Boire of the Citizen Lab, which examines a collection of malware HackingTeam extensively.

Mentioned, the mastermind behind Galileo RCS build dangerous implants specific for obvious target. Once the samples are ready, the attacker sends them to mobile devices victim.

Some of the known vector infection including spearphishing through social engineering, which is often combined with exploitation, including the exploitation of zero-day, and local infection via the USB cable when the mobile device synchronization.

Robin Li, China’s Richest People ‘Kill’ Google

Robin Li seen as a figure of calm. But make no mistake, he is not a citizen of China mostly. The 45-year-old man is the richest man in the Bamboo Curtain country, with total assets in the range of $ 12.2 billion in December 2013, according to research from Forbes.

Robin wealth thanks to the company he founded an online search engine, Baidu. Baidu to date sturdy become the largest search engine in China with a market share in the range of 64%. They succeed ‘kill’ Google in China, the market share is very low.

Indeed skyrocketing Baidu is not separated from the Chinese government policies that often block Google so that companies from the United States is very limited movement. But still rising Baidu also thanks to its quality, so that the Chinese people choose it as the main search engine.

Men who married and has 4 children were obviously proud of the achievement. Moreover, since 2007, Baidu became the first Chinese company entered the NASDAQ 100 index, one of the stock market index of the most respected.

Despite tremendous success, Li apparently still a big ambition. He had expressed his intention to become a global company, not just a champion alone.

“When the Chinese market stopped growing faster than any other country in the world, we will see out. The reason we focus here is China is the fastest growing markets we can access,” he said.

Red Hat offers a hybrid platform that combines datacenter virtualization and management across the public and private cloud with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3

redhat

Designed to give a traditional data center virtualization technology which at the same time Red Hat continues to compile against OpenStack technology, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enables companies to deploy traditional and elastic workloads on their existing infrastructure without affecting the level of service, performance or scalability.

The latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization allows customers to use a set of services OpenStack (Compute, Storage and Network) that can be used by their datacenter virtualization platform via the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, as well as their private cloud via the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.

With a cohesive environment between Private Cloud and data center, various companies claimed now able to deploy traditional workloads and elastic without having to duplicate the infrastructure layer.

The latest release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization includes several features of infrastructure, network and storage to increase developer portability across heterogeneous cloud environments, including:

-. The new self-hosted machine, allowing the implementation of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager as a virtual machine on the host, reducing hardware requirements;

-. Back-up and restore API integration now includes a new backup infrastructure that provides a broad set of APIs for third-party software vendors to perform backup and restore to their virtual machines.

-. Support for OpenStack OpenStack Glance and Neutron, which allows users to store their virtual machine templates and allows configuration of advanced network infrastructure that can be shared between the private cloud and datacenter virtualization.

Radhesh Balakrishnan, General Manager of Virtualization & OpenStack Red Hat said, improvements of Red Hat KVM hypervisor consistent to open and offers simultaneously virtualization management now enable more customers to take control of their data centers and build individual path to cloud infrastructure personal.

With the new addition to third-party plug-ins offered by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3, this offers the fundamental core for bargains OpenStack cloud supported Red Hat.

Hybrid Cloud in Eyes Open Source

Currently, many companies began to look a hybrid cloud implementations. It is not independent because the conditions of cloud computing is increasingly complex.

Red Hat, as one of the companies that provide solutions that said, the hybrid cloud mix of private cloud combined with the public cloud.

Hybrid cloud itself comes from the demands of the enterprise who want the flexibility of cloud computing, but with the level of security in the style of a dedicated infrastructure.

Many technology vendors are trying to offer its cloud solutions respectively. Generally, the vendor claims his is the best solution in the implementation of the hybrid cloud. But the drawback is, almost all of which are proprietary software.

This means that users are forced to use it according to the standard that is applied to each vendor. In fact, sometimes the user is also required to buy the devices required by the solution offered.

What if the user can develop their own platform which uses the hybrid cloud? Well, this is trying to offer Red Hat. Known for the reliability of open source solutions besutannya, Linux distributions invites users to work on own solution you want to use the hybrid cloud.

According to Gordon Haff, Cloud Evangelist Red Hat, open source offers a high flexibility for enterprise IT offenders because it provides flexibility development. “(Open source) invites developers for an all-out in the (implementation) cloud,” he said at the office of Red Hat in Ciputra World Jakarta.

“Open source also eliminates the existing restrictions on proprietary software. In addition, 76% of companies are now beginning to assume importance in the open source cloud infrastructure,” he added.

He also mentions Google, Amazon, and Facebook which debuted using open source, and still continues to develop until today with Red Hat.

Subject doubt some companies who doubted the security of cloud computing, Haff said the use of open source developers can add the kind of protection that limits between the cloud and access devices.

If you do not want to bother, Haff added Red Hat also has a security solution that can fill the gap.

Furthermore, as the development of cloud computing, virtualization hardware Haff predict the future will also be popular. Because this solution is considered to be more efficient, especially in terms of price and flexibility. Moreover, when compared to a dedicated infrastructure where the users are not required to disburse a little if you want to upgrade.

Red Hat itself as the company exists in the world of open source has recently announced its latest enterprise solutions Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. This solution be the answer as the foundation for the hybrid cloud-based open-source or the start-called open hybrid cloud.

“So Red Hat offers a Platform as a Service via RHEL 7. Furthermore, developers can develop them according to business needs,” he concluded
