IoT malware and stresser software[edit]

Hi all,

Currently we don't have much coverage on the subject of IoT malware and stresser software which has been recently on media, but lacks significant coverage on Wikipedia. If anyone is interested I'm looking for a collaboration to improve coverage on articles on the subject.

I suppose I can lend a helping hand, although I'll be mostly limited to weekends. What's the plan? --DanielPharos (talk) 08:20, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
Probably the first step would be to start articles on notable IoT malware and work on having the articles reach a quality scale of class c or better. I've also given thought of a timeline or list to go along with this, but this will probably come during a later stage when most of the articles are completed.

Sounds good! I see two articles on IoT malware right now: Mirai (malware) and BASHLITE. The BASHLITE one is really stubby; I'll take a look at that one and see what I can do. --DanielPharos (talk) 21:25, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
Wow! The BASHLITE article looks much better now. I'll see if I can start work on creating Remaiten. FockeWulf FW 190 (talk) 20:38, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Is there a security breach NEWS page on or here?[edit]

I am new to this group. Let me know if any news item that belongs to here or somewhere else? thanks. LairdUnlimited (talk) 17:40, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Security of password managers[edit]

You have Comparison_of_password_managers and List of password managers and LastPass, etc. But there's no information on the security of password managers. LastPass had yet another huge security hole reported by a white hat Tavis Ormandy recently. So I started looking to switch to one that has a better reputation or better record or has been 3rd-party audited. I found that 1Password hasn't been audited, and neither has LastPass, but that information should be on Wikipedia for the listed entries. Without it, the articles are worse than useless. --StarDestroyer — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:643:8300:B030:50BB:CE2:4353:1F86 (talk) 14:55, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Then create an account (rather than faking a signature) and fix it, with reliable sources. Cabayi (talk) 15:03, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
