Study by Dognaedis' Client highlighted on Expresso newspaper
Bad shape of the Portuguese State IT
Four years ago, Francisco Rente, IT security expert and Dognaedis CEO, coordinated a project developed by researchers of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of University of Coimbra, concluded that at least one in each five IP addresses tested was vulnerable to attacks that put at risk the privacy, integrity and confidentiality of information. On a scale 0 to 10, the IT system security in the public sector got 4.1 points, and that is considered "dangerous".
Mobile devices allow transmitting user location information to third parties
The results of the study conducted by Dognaedis are very clear regarding the ability of mobile devices to transmit inadvertently our location.
The project named I Can Track You was developed under the spectrum of Dognaedis' work, an Information Security Company from Coimbra and analyzed the behavior of almost 9000 mobile devices connected to public wireless networks.
"Heartbleed" is no reason to stop using computers, says expert
Although this bug is related to data encryption and it is more serious than other vulnerabilities in the computer world, Francisco Rente explained that its already being solved.
The software bug "Heartbleed", considered one of the biggest security holes in Internet history, is no reason to stop using computers or other devices, says the expert in computer security.
Over 200 Portuguese servers are apt to be used by spammers
At the beginning of this year Dognaedis estimated more than 200 Portuguese email servers that are able to be controlled by spammers or hackers for launching phishing attacks through emails.
The data collected by the Company, using tracking tools on the 5M IP addresses used in Portugal, shows that over 200 servers were misconfigured at the beginning of 2013, allowing a spammer to resend unsolicited electronic messages to thousands of users and being able to hide the identity of the sender.
