Tuta Mail adds new quantum-resistant encryption to protect email

A new post-quantum encryption technique called TutaCrypt has been unveiled by Tuta Mail to protect communications from potent and predicted decoding assaults. With ten million subscribers, Tuta Mail is an open-source, end-to-end encrypted email service. Tuta, the company that created it, is headquartered in Germany and works with the government to develop file-sharing and post-quantum safe cloud storage systems. Tuta today announced the release of TutaCrypt, a new protocol meant to thwart 'harvest now, decrypt later' assaults on currently shared communications. Attacks known as "harvest now, decrypt later" include gathering encrypted data that is now unreadable to store it until a time when more potent decryption techniques become accessible read more Tuta Mail adds new quantum resi...

Linux Variant of Clop Ransomware Spotted, But Uses Faulty Encryption Algorithm

With a flawed encryption method that allowed for reverse engineering, the first-ever Linux form of the Clop ransomware has been found in the public. In a report shared with The Hacker News, SentinelOne researcher Antonis Terefos stated that "the ELF executable features a faulty encryption scheme making it easy to decode encrypted files without paying the ransom." The cybersecurity company, which has released a decryptor, reported observing the ELF version on December 26, 2022, and also noted that it is comparable to the Windows flavour in that it uses the same encryption technique. The discovered sample is reportedly part of a broader attack against Colombian educational institutions read the complete article Linux Variant of Clop Ransomware Spotted, But Uses Faulty Encryption Al...
