QOTD e-Records & Malware

So the malware sits on the doctors laptop, waits for him to log in ... and the malware is reading the data at the same time the doctor is. They [hackers] did not need to log in on your behalf. They did not need to crack passwords. They did not need to go to the hard drive and decrypt the data. They sat in the middle of the application. -- Dr. Taher Elgamal, CSO at Axway, was key in the development of SSL at Netscape
