New software from Palo Alto Networks is targeting the problem of security for east-west traffic in the data center, communications that aren’t easily handled by a conventional firewall.
The new product, being launched Tuesday, is a VMware-specific version of the VM series of virtualized firewalls that Palo Alto introduced last year, and it was developed with VMware’s help to work in the NSX network-virtualization environment. VMware gave sneak previews at VMworld Barcelona recently.

Stealing passwords can be useful for an attacker in a variety of ways. The SEA attacks against the New York Times and variety of other sites provided a stark case in point earlier this year. In that case, instead of stealing passwords from the New York Times directly, the attackers targeted the DNS registrar that the Times uses for its websites. In short, the attackers didn't really attack the New York Times directly at all - they simply broke in to Melbourne IT (the DNS registrar for the New York Times) and changed the DNS record for nytimes.com to point to an IP address in Syria.

Alex Raistrick, vice president for Western Europe at Palo Alto Networks, has spotted an attack vector where backdoors are being exploited, though.
"There is something of an intentional backdoor left open by mobile application developers," he says.The most common backdoor threats to organisational data come not from any technology but from complacency on the part of the user.
"By installing software such as an SDK in the application itself, the app can reach out to the internet and pull the correct ad in order to get paid. But this embedded software then provides access to the application and the device itself."
