Submission + - Vatican Said To Be Victim in Recent Cyber Attack (securityweek.com) 1

wiredmikey writes: Late last week, security researchers from Radware discovered a new Trojan Key Logger on a system of one of its clients named “Admin.HLP” that captures sensitive user information and attempts to export it to a server in a remote location.

At the time Radware would not comment on who the victim was, but soon after, a source told FOXBusiness that the Victim was the Vatican.

The governing body of the Catholic Church is not commenting on the issue, however. “No comment,” is all that was said in a two-word email from the Vatican Press Office on August 31 sent in response to an inquiry from Catholic News Agency.

The Vatican has been hit with cyber attacks in the past, including DDoS attacks and Website defacements by Anonymous. It's unclear who was behind these recent targeted attacks, however.

When i still was a children, i always dreamed that i can travel aroud the world and use my camera to record the gorgeous landscape. Now i fall into love withHDR, which can fully show the images details from the highlight and the shadow. It's amazing.Even though the HDR images contain rich details, largely improving the image quality, it can only be used under the situation with the high contrast of light and shandow. It suits to shoot the subjects covering the dawn, the sunset, and the urban night scene etc."
