When Cyber Crime Becomes Cyber Hype

When the first deadline for Form PF came rolling down the pike in 2012, most every vendor that geared itself toward the buy side launched aggressive marketing pushes touting their wares as being the tool that could help conquer this new requirement that stemmed out of the Dodd-Frank Act. In 2013, vendors focusing on banks jumped onto the Basel III credit valuation adjustment (CVA) bandwagon to spread the good word about their risk modeling and risk analytics tools. A new term of art—XVA—was eventually born. Last year, the investment book of record (IBOR) took hold amongst large asset managers and a sea of vendors began distributing information about their IBOR capabilities. This is not to say that all of these vendors were full of it ─ most were simply seizing on a new challenge to market a product that they fully believe in. That’s fair. But other vendors were simply slapping lipstick on a pig. More accurately, you can put a Porsche body on a $15,000 starter car, but if there’s no a twin-turbo engine underneath then while it may look like a high-end sports car, it won’t perform like one. Let’s start this discussion with the acceptance that cybercrime […]

Why Firmware Is So Vulnerable to Hacking, and What Can Be Done About It

firmware

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

When Kaspersky Lab revealed last week that it had uncovered a sophisticated piece of malware designed to plant malicious code inside the firmware of computers, it should have surprised no one. And that’s not just because documents leaked by Edward Snowden have shown that spy agencies like the NSA have an intense interest in hacking the firmware of systems, but also because other researchers have shown in the past how insecure firmware—in nearly all systems—is. Computers contain a lot of firmware, all of which is potentially vulnerable to hacking—everything from USB keyboards and web cams to graphics and sound cards. Even computer batteries have firmware. “There’s firmware everywhere in your computer, and all of it is risky,” says security researcher Karsten Nohl, who demonstrated last year how he could embed malicious code in the firmware of USB sticks. There’s also firmware in all of our popular digital gadgets—smartphones and smart TVs, digital cameras, and music players. Most of it is vulnerable for the same reasons the firmware the Equation Group targeted is vulnerable: it was never designed to be secure. Most hardware makers don’t cryptographically sign the firmware embedded in their systems nor include authentication features in their devices that […]

Q&A: Hackers can watch you through cameras

cameras

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

My son gave me a wireless indoor security camera so I can keep an eye on my dogs while at work. I heard you talking about hackers who spy using these cameras on your national radio show. How can I make sure no one sees my cameras? A. It’s not very difficult to spy on people through Internet-connected wireless cameras because people don’t do one simple thing. That is, they don’t change the camera’s default or built-in password. An online search yields the default password for most camera makes and models. In case you’re wondering about your webcam, the same issue exists. My ex is calling and texting me nonstop, begging for my forgiveness. I don’t want to change my number. Help! Fortunately, most smartphones have a fix for this annoyance. In iOS, just tap a person’s name in the Phone app, Contact app or Messages app and then tap the Block Contact button. In Android, open your Phone app and go to Settings>>Call>>Call Rejection>>Auto Reject List>>Create. Put in the person’s name and their calls and texts won’t go through. For Windows Phone, go to Settings and tap call+SMS filter. Tap “Accept” and then switch blocking to “On.” Next, go […]

Told U.S. is hacker, firm probes

Edward Snowden

 Powered by Max Banner Ads BERLIN — Gemalto, the largest maker of mobile-phone cards, said it’s investigating a report that U.S. and U.K. spies allegedly hacked into its computer network to steal the keys used to encrypt conversations, messages and data traffic. The United Kingdom’s Government Communications Headquarters and the U.S. National Security Agency started intercepting the encoders in 2010 as they were being shipped to phone companies, allowing them to monitor wireless communications and bypass the need to get permission for wiretapping, the online publication Intercept reported Thursday, citing documents from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Gemalto is a particularly valuable holder of the key,s as the French company produces 2 billion SIM cards every year, according to the report. “The publication indicates the target was not Gemalto per se — it was an attempt to try and cast the widest net possible to reach as many mobile phones as possible, with the aim to monitor mobile communications without mobile network operators and users consent,” Gemalto said in a news statement Friday, adding that it couldn’t immediately verify the findings in the report. In an emailed statement, the British communications agency said it couldn’t comment on intelligence matters, citing agency […]

Hackers can track phone users’ location by looking at power supply

spying.si.si

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Researchers have found out it is possible to track someone’s mobile phone by looking at how much battery has been used. The data does not need the users’ permission to be shared, while it can help track a phone with up to 90 percent accuracy. The findings were carried out by a group of researchers at Stanford University and the Israeli defense company Rafael. The created a technique, which they have named PowerSpy and can gather information concerning the location of Android phones. It does this by simply tracking how much power has been used over a certain time. How much power is used depends on a number of factors. For example, the further away the phone is from a transmitter, the more power is needed to get a signal. Physical objects such as mountains or buildings also have an impact on the amount of battery needed as these obstacles can block the phone’s signal, meaning there are temporary ‘power drains’ on the devices. “A sufficiently long power measurement (several minutes) enables the learning algorithm to ‘see’ through the noise,” the researchers said, which was reported by Wired. “We show that measuring the phone’s aggregate power […]

Skimming’ device found at Rock Hill bank ATM part of growing problem

Last week, when Wesley Kennan went to make a lunchtime withdrawal from the ATM at a BB&T branch in Rock Hill, he made an alarming discovery. After swiping his card, he gave a “gentle” pull on the card reader. Kennan said he sometimes does that when using ATMs to look for so-called skimming devices installed by criminals to steal card information. To his surprise, the reader slipped right off. Kennan called Rock Hill police, who are now investigating. “In today’s world,” he said, “you have to be vigilant.” Skimming, which typically targets ATMs and gas pumps, is on the rise in the Charlotte metropolitan area, according to the U.S. Secret Service, which says it is the most common type of cybercrime in the region. Just four months ago, SunTrust Banks said devices designed to steal card information were found on some of its automated teller machines in the Charlotte area. Since October, the agency says it has investigated 11 skimming incidents involving more than nine suspects, in a region spanning from Greensboro to Asheville. Most of the cases have been in Charlotte. That’s more than double the four incidents involving three suspects during the 12 months prior to October. According […]

Subah Info solutions, what crime at all?

The Akans have a saying “nipa ye adea, ose ayeyi” to wit “give credit where credit is due.” This clearly was the motivation and reason behind the extension of commendation to Information Technology [IT] firm, Subah Info Solutions through whose deployment of superior technology within a short time led to much easier tracking of SIM Box fraud operators, resulting in a SERIES of arrest of persons behind the current fraud and seizure of the sophisticated equipment used in the business as well as saving the State a whopping One hundred Million [GH100.000,000] Ghana cedis. Director General of Criminal Investigation Department [CID], Commissioner of Police [COP] Prosper Agblor at a press conference to highlight the work of the Telecom anti-fraud taskforce extended the commendation which was not limited only to Subah but all other stakeholders. Hardly did the full content of the press conference settle when a “rampaging group” comprising Telecom companies, the Telecom Chamber and some “hired” commentators took to the airwaves and social media to discount among other things, the information of Subah’s contribution towards the arrest of SIM Box fraudsters. Regrettably, Communications Minister, Dr Edward Omane Boamah was nearly “devoured” by the ‘rampaging group” over a very objective […]
