 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 […]

Bank CEOs worried cyber threats will affect business growth

Shortly after the biggest ever web heist, new research claims that CEOs from banks are concerned over how cyber risks can damage growth. PwC’s Achieving Success Without Managing Disruption study surveyed 175 banking and capital marketing CEOs, and found that 92 per cent are feeling positive about their company’s prospects in the next few years. However, they have also expressed concerns regarding threats with potential to harm such growth. Threats include market entrants (53 per cent), cyber risks (79 per cent) and over-regulation (89 per cent). PwC published the report just days after a hacking incident was revealed by Kaspersky Lab. The hacking group, known as Carbanak, is believed to have stolen a possible £650m from 100 banks throughout the world within the past two years. The report said: “Concerns about cyber threats have shot up most compared to last year – and, in light of the recent attacks on gaming and entertainment networks, the perceived risk will only increase. The speed of technological change and the availability of key skills are other threats that have seen a marked rise in concern from CEOs.” The fact that banks have expressed such concern over cybercrime is a sign of the times […]

More criminals being caught due to cloud technology

HOUSTON – When Randy Schaefer’s iPad was stolen he never thought he’d see it again. The device, along with $5,000 cash were stolen when his truck was broken into while parked on the street in front of his home in his River Oaks neighborhood. Then, Schaefer found selfies of two men posing with a wad of cash on his iCloud account. “There were several pictures,” Schaefer said. “There were about 15 pictures.” The two even made a video bragging about their crime. The video was uploaded to the Internet and went viral, making national headlines. “Hello America. This is Dorian from the Money Team. This is my brother, Dillan, also Money Team, and this my good people is what we get from a good night’s hustle,” the man who called himself Dorian said as he held up a stack of $100 bills. “We doing ‘Big Face Ben’ over here [in reference to Benjamin Franklin] new, old, we just hustle. Don’t worry about how.” But, there was just one thing they were apparently unaware of when they snapped the selfies and video; the iPad was backed up to Schaefer’s iCloud, and led police straight to them. “I feel relieved they finally […]

New technique could ID hair dye at crime scenes

Criminals with a penchant for dyeing their hair could soon pay for their vanity. Scientists at Northwestern University have found a way to analyze hair samples at crime scenes to rapidly determine whether it was colored and what brand of dye was used. Their report appears in the American Chemical Society journal Analytical Chemistry. Richard Van Duyne and Dmitry Kurouski note that analyzing hairs for forensic investigations, despite what TV shows would have you believe, can be a labor-intensive, time-consuming and flawed process. Testing samples for DNA requires an intact bulb or root, which isn’t always present. The researchers turned to surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy with a portable Raman spectrometer. SERS can detect minute amounts of illicit drugs, explosives, gunshot residue and body fluids. With this method, the team could rapidly confirm whether hair samples, even microscopic ones, were dyed and what brand of colorant was used. This highly sensitive technique could help forensic investigators analyze hair quickly in the field, the researchers say. acs.org Study finds where ants go to ‘do their business’ Ants may use the corners of their nest as “toilets,” according to a study in the journal PLOS ONE by Tomer Czaczkes and colleagues from Germany’s University […]
