Threat Intelligence, an Australian security consultancy specialising in the next era of intelligence-based threat management and penetration testing, today announced that it has been selected to run its cutting-edge “Practical Threat Intelligence” course at the prestigious Hack In The Box Security Conference (“HITBSecConf”) in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, October 13 – 16 October 2014.
Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has blamed the software that it used to track its aircraft for its erroneous report to air traffic controllers that MH370 was flying over Cambodian airspace about an hour after it went missing.
MAS explained that it made the deduction based on its ‘flight-following system’ which displayed the aircraft’s predicted position and not its actual location.
The missing Malaysia Airlines jet sent at least two bursts of technical data back to the airline before it disappeared, New Scientist has learned. The data may help investigators understand what went wrong with the aircraft, no trace of which has yet been found.
