Celebrity hacker busted after trying to sell stolen scripts to undercover agents

A Bahamas-based hacker was busted for trying to sell scripts, personal information, and sexually explicit pictures and videos of celebrities that he stole from his famous victims’ personal email accounts, authorities said Tuesday. Alonzo Knowles, 23, of Freeport, Bahama was arrested in Manhattan Monday after trying to sell scripts to an undercover agent, according to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Knowles tried selling scripts from a hit TV show to an unidentified radio host, and also offered to sell sexually explicit images and videos that he had stolen from the personal email accounts of various celebrities and sports figures to undercover agents, prosecutors said. “This case has all of the elements of the kind of blockbuster script the defendant, Alonzo Knowles, is alleged to have stolen: hacks into celebrities’ private emails, identity theft, and attempts to sell victims’ information to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, these circumstances are all too real,” Bharara said. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations began looking into Knowles, also known as Jeff Moxey, this month after a tip from an unnamed radio host. The celebrity-obsessed cyber criminal told an undercover agent earlier this month that he had “exclusive content” that was “really profitable” and […]

Hacker squad plans DDoS attacks on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live this Christmas

Forget the Grinch, there’s someone else who wants to steal Christmas. Phantom Squad, an online hacker group, has threatened to shut down Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network this Christmas by unleashing a series of DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks — coordinated barrages of falsified incoming server traffic that causes the system to crash. “We are going to shut down Xbox Live and PSN this year on Christmas,” the hackers tweeted. “And we are going to keep them down for one week straight. #DramaAlert.” This could cause a big problem, because a lot of people are expecting to receive new gaming consoles on Dec. 25. If Phantom Squad is successful, this would be the second year in a row that these gaming networks go offline. Last year, the infamous hacker group Lizard Squad took credit for shutting down Xbox Live and PSN for two days. The group demanded more retweets and Twitter followers in exchange for restoring the servers. Phantom Squad, which said it has no relation to Lizard Squad, claims they’ve previously performed smaller outages on the gaming community servers, as well as other website such as Reddit.

Hacker Lexicon: Botnets, the Zombie Computer Armies That Earn Hackers Millions

ZOMBIE ARMIES AREN’T just invading movie screens these days. They’re also taking over the Internet in the form of massive botnets. A botnet is an army of computers, all infected with the same malware, that gives a bot herder remote control of these computers in order to surreptitiously commandeer them without their owners’ knowledge. The bot herder can send instructions to the network of computers from a command-and-control server to siphon credit card numbers and banking credentials from them or use them to launch DDoS attacks against web sites, deliver spam and other malware to victims, or conduct advertising click fraud. Botnets came up this month in a Senate Judiciary hearing with FBI Director James Comey. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, who has previously likened botnets to weeds that do “evil things,” asked Comey for his assessment of one of the Internet’s biggest scourges, and Comey replied that there was no such thing as a “good botnet.” “Whether they’re coming at you or whether they’re standing still, it’s bad,” Comey replied. “I don’t know of a good purpose for an army of zombies.” Botnets have been around for more than a decade and have become one of the most popular methods attackers […]

Microsoft and US Army Hacker flees overseas, says his case is going no where after 3 years

Meet Dylan Wheeler. He is the hacker who allegedly hacked into Microsoft, Valve and US Army websites and has been in the Australian law enforcement agencies radar for past 3 years but they have not been able to arrest him. Wheeler, an Australian teenage hacker from Perth, was able to flee easily despite having been ordered to take his passport into custody. Mr. Wheeler, was only 17, when he and his hacker gang was accused of hacking and stealing at least $US100 million ($A108.2 million) worth of software and data from Microsoft, Valve and the US Army. He was under police radar following a joint international investigation into five suspected hackers, most of them US-based. Facing a possible sentence of ten years, Mr. Wheeler fled the country almost after three years later. He says that it was really scary how easily he made way and was able to flee the country. Currently, residing in the Czech Republic, Mr. Wheeler told 7.30, “I left Australia because my case went on for about two to three years and it was getting nowhere.” “What they really wanted to do was take away my freedom and keep me confined into a room and I was not prepared […]

Cyber security firm owner creates Hacker Academy

Steve Barone, the owner and CEO of CBI, got his start in business selling Atari and Commodore home computers in an East Detroit shop in the 1980s. The native Detroiter dropped out of Wayne State University, but found a job he enjoyed and paid the bills. He also sold PCs for ITT Courier, and later, decided to started his own firm, Creative Breakthroughs Inc., which now specializes in information technology and goes by the initials CBI. This year, the company moved its headquarters from Ferndale to Detroit. “Computer security is a very real issue today,” Barone, 51, said. “I got a text this morning from a third party that made it sound like my bank account had been actioned from somewhere. I isolated the link, put it on a separate laptop, opened it up in a protected browser, and found out it was a hacking attempt.” CBI — which has about 100 employees and expects sales of $52 million this year — also offers workers and companies opportunities to learn new information technology skills and test their security in what Barone has playfully named the Cyber Range and the Hacking Academy. In the next few years, he said, he aims to take the company public. Barone — whose name is pronounced with the long e at the […]

Brit hardware hacker turns Raspberry Pi Zeros into selfie slayers

Brit hardware hacker turns Raspberry Pi Zeros into selfie slayers

Kiwicon Hipsters and selfie addicts beware: infosec man Steve Lord has crafted a tool designed to sever your line of addiction to Instagram by quietly blocking it over public Wi-Fi. The British security bod built the Raspberry Pi Zero-powered “hipster slayer” out of nothing more than off-the-shelf components and “questionable life choices.” The gizmo will continually deny people’s attempts to connect to Instagram and other social media vanity sites. It works by sniffing for DNS lookups on open wireless networks, and when it detects someone trying to access a hated website, special networking frames are sent to the person’s PC or handheld instructing it to immediately leave the network. The vast majority of devices comply with these orders. It is exceptionally effective at selfie-drenched “music” festivals and coffee shops. Lord (@stevelord) says the tool will feature in his presentation at the Kiwicon conference in Wellington, New Zealand, next week. The Wi-Fi-blocking gadget is among a bunch of gizmos he’s crafted and dubbed the Internet of Wrongs; they are designed “solely to antagonise people.” “It powers up from a battery and looks for DNS records on open wireless networks that meet target keywords and deauths the client when it finds a […]

Hacker gets Windows RT 8.1 (WinPE) running on a Lumia 520

Hacker gets Windows RT 8.1 (WinPE) running on a Lumia 520

Recently, we reported about Windows Phone Internals, a new tool from Heathcliff. The tool allows users to unlock the bootloader of a few Lumia devices and flash custom ROMs on their Lumia device. The tool currently supports a few Lumia devices, including the Lumia 520, 521, 525,  620, 625, 720, 820, 920, 925, 928,  1020 and 1320. Obviously, the tool is pretty risky, and may damage your device if you don’t have much knowledge about custom ROMs and bootloaders. With that being said, the tool can allow users to do some crazy things on their Lumia devices. It seems like XDA member Wack0Distractor was able to getWINDOWS 8.1 RT (6.3.9600 WinPE) running on their Lumia….520. For those unfamiliar with WinPE, it’s theWINDOWS Preinstallation Environment. Thanks to @Heathcliff74 and co. for WPinternals, without that, this wouldn’t have been possible! After patching signature checks out of winload, and adding the halexts andREGISTRY ENTRIES for those, I had to patch 1 byte in the kernel, without which a SECURITY_SYSTEM bugcheck happens during boot. I haven’t fully added any drivers yet, other than the halexts, i’ll be doing that soon. So right now touchscreen doesn’t work etc. I will probably try to get some driversWORKING in this WinPE then nothing more, this was […]

That hacker, known as “mr.grey”, was identified based on data from a cybsecurity firm that announced in August 2014 that it had determined an alleged Russian crime ring was responsible for stealing information from more than 420,000 websites,THE DOCUMENTS said. Court documents made public last week, and seen by Reuters, name a mysterious force called “mr.grey” as the hacker, or group of hackers, behind last year’s attack, which is regarded as the biggest cyber heist to date. The FBI is now on the heels of a “mr.grey”, a Russian hacker who announced on hackers forums that he is selling users’ data hacked from thousands of websites, including Facebook and Twitter; the U.S.SECURITY AGENCY has linked the foreign hacker through a Russian email id to the breach of about 1.2 billion users’ data across the internet. Hold Security’s chief information security officer, Alex Holden, told Reuters that he believes the 2011 message proves the hacker, or group of hackers, has access to a large database of stolen data.

According to reports dated November 23 from Motherboard, a hacker known as “5hm00p” has confessed on Twitter that he served as a FBI informant and was involved in betraying some of his fellow hackers. He claims to have helped the US government nab the hacker turned ISIS fighterJunaid Hussain. “5hm00p,” a famous hacker and member of the hacker group Rustle League, identified himself over the weekend as an FBI “snitch,” as he put it. 5hm00p explains in a tweet dated November 20 that the FBI had approached him almost two years ago who made him believe that he was going to beRAIDED, if he did not cooperate in a terror investigation. Early Sunday morning, cryptically tweeted “What the f*** have I done”. According to an archived copy of 5hm00p’s now deleted tweets pointed at the FBI, “I lost a lot of good friendships and my f****** honor. I’m so embarrassed to show my face in public now because of this.” “Congratulations,” he wrote. “You got it. Congratulations, you got what you wanted on my friend @_DillonC all because you thought he was with some bullshit terrorist group.” Apparently, 5hm00p is the primary provider for his family. After the FBI threatened […]
