But does the fact it came from a top anti-malware vendor give it a competitive edge in the quest for security? It takes concepts from the Flux Advanced Security Kernel (FLASK) architecture, which was used in SELinux and SEBSD, but builds a new OS from scratch with security in mind, enabling what he calls "global Default Deny at the process level." Just what the world needs, another Linux distro.

Researchers build undetectable rootkit for programmable logic controllers

Network World

Researchers have devised a new malware attack against industrial programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that takes advantage of architectural shortcomings in microprocessors and bypasses current detection mechanisms. The attack changes the configuration of the input/output pins that make up the interface used by PLCs to communicate with other devices such as sensors, valves, and motors.
