Next, we dive into the world of airline reservation scams, exposing how fraudsters exploit a loophole to deceive unsuspecting travelers. Learn how to protect yourself and avoid being swindled by these ticket scams.

Finally, we discuss the security vulnerability discovered in Eaton’s smart security alarm systems, highlighting the significant risks of IDOR (Insecure Direct Object Reference) vulnerabilities and the potential for unauthorized access.
