Google Chrome announces plans to improve URL display, website identity

Credit to Author: Malwarebytes Labs| Date: Wed, 06 Feb 2019 18:16:47 +0000

The search giant isn’t “killing” (a.k.a. getting rid of) the URL, unlike some sensationalist and eye-rolling headlines have put it. They are slowly giving it a facelift.

Look-Alike Domains and Visual Confusion

Credit to Author: BrianKrebs| Date: Thu, 08 Mar 2018 16:55:13 +0000

How good are you at telling the difference between domain names you know and trust and imposter or look-alike domains? The answer may depend on how familiar you are with the nuances of internationalized domain names (IDNs), as well as which browser or Web application you’re using. For example, how does your browser interpret the following domain? I’ll give you a hint: Despite appearances, it is most certainly not the actual domain for software firm CA Technologies (formerly Computer Associates Intl Inc.), which owns the original ca.com domain name: https://www.са.com/ Go ahead and click on the link above or cut-and-paste it into a browser address bar. If you’re using Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari, or some recent version of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer or Edge browsers, you should notice that the address converts to “xn--80a7a.com.” This is called “punycode,” and it allows browsers to render domains with non-Latin alphabets like Cyrillic and Ukrainian. Below is what it looks like in Edge on Windows 10; Google Chrome renders it much the same way. Notice what’s in the address bar (ignore the “fake site” and “Welcome to…” text, which was added as a courtesy by the person who registered this domain):

Microsoft Patch Tuesday, February 2018 Edition

Credit to Author: BrianKrebs| Date: Tue, 13 Feb 2018 21:13:27 +0000

Microsoft today released a bevy of security updates to tackle more than 50 serious weaknesses in Windows, Internet Explorer/Edge, Microsoft Office and Adobe Flash Player, among other products. A good number of the patches issued today ship with Microsoft’s “critical” rating, meaning the problems they fix could be exploited remotely by miscreants or malware to seize complete control over vulnerable systems — with little or no help from users.
