There are many reasons why one might choose a VPN whether it be for privacy or unlocking geo-restricted content however, no one really takes into account the VPN protocols that these VPN providers use.

If you use Linux, whether it is just to browse the web, use it as a VPN server, or even if you use it to hack people (Just kidding!), then it is pretty essential and worthwhile to understand the pros and cons of using a VPN for Linux.
The use of Web Applications is growing amongst businesses, however, that also makes these businesses a target for Cyber Criminals to attack. If there are vulnerabilities within your Web Application, then that means there is a flaw that attackers may exploit to really wreak some havoc to an individual, small business, or even large corporations alike.
Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) were initially created to grant workers who are remote, workers who travel, or workers who do not tend to be in the office access to the local network over an insecure network connection when they are not physically within the local network. Essentially, a VPN can be used for various reasons however, the main purpose was for the use of businesses and companies.
In this increasingly digital era, every business, no matter the size, has to be vigilant about its cybersecurity. Data breaches have become rampant over the past several years, costing even the top companies millions of dollars in damages. Hackers are always scheming to steal critical data and so, it is best to stay ahead of the game.
Thank you to Lerma for contributing this article. What is the impact of AI on cybersecurity today? AI is making a difference for companies feeling the pinch of strained resources. The resilience of tech-savvy cyber hackers is another reason cybersecurity strategists are quickly adopting artificial intelligence-powered solutions.
Nowadays, Linux systems are considered fairly secure, as people think that Linux rarely gets infected with malware such as viruses, rootkits, worms, etc. You might also see that we hardly ever come across Antivirus software being sold for Linux, giving the illusion that Linux is an ultimately secure Operating System.
End-to-end encryption is an increasingly popular method that online services are using to ensure their users’ security. End-to-end encryption, also known as E2EE, encodes messages sent from one user to another in a way that ensures that only the sender and recipient can decode the message.
In the previous part of our Hacker's Corner series, we covered anti-debugging using a trivial self-modifying code. Here, instead of blocking debugging completely, we will detect various debugger-induced activities.
What good is a keylogger (or any such tool, for that matter), that is reversed using a debugger within minutes? Let's level up just a little bit, and try to make malware analyst's job slightly more involved.
While the internet provides many benefits, it also brings new risks and challenges. One of the most common and notable of these is the threat to our privacy. Some users might think that they are protected by their browser, search engine and antivirus programs. However, the truth is that most of us aren’t doing nearly enough to keep websites from tracking us.
Today, one of the most popular ways for free websites and browsers to make a profit is tracking and selling user data to advertisers. While most tracking is behind the scenes and discreet, allowing oneself to be tracked can have negative consequences–attackers often attempt to track users the same way legitimate companies do in order to steal data; not to mention the growing concern of companies using data purchased from legitimate sources to manipulate users.

Globally, there are roughly 30,000 web-based cyberattacks daily, primarily targeting smaller businesses and smaller websites. To put it into perspective, that is an estimated 1 cyberattack every 3 seconds that targets websites specifically.
