So all the way to day 2 at RSA before anything to write about?

Wondered how far the value of the RSA conference  had fallen.

Thanks for reinforcing my decision to never go again.  I had trouble finding anything of value last year and it seems that the content has gone to an even lower standard.  I guesss last Decembers news is good enough for the RSA crowd.

 

Maybe they got a few people to attend the guy who gets kicked off the United flight speech.

 

Hang in there only a few more hours till cocktail time in Frisco where the real RSA action happens.

Hiding in plain site
It's amazing how the malvertising attacks were injected in ads hosted by such well known websites. Many I would have considered reputable and trustworthy. Its scary to see that these things are hiding in such widely trafficked areas.

I remember reading an article stating that ad space is difficult to lock down as everyone, not only people with genuine need, can buy ad space.

Scary
Ransomware creeps me out. Even though I have multiple back ups of my important files, folders and images, I really would rather the people that put the software together just stole money from my bank account. I can always earn that back, but personal files and images are totally irreplaceable. 

It's a great reason for people to make sure their files are well protected.
