An ethical hacker at one of the world’s biggest tech companies

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Charles Henderson gets paid to think like a bad guy. As an ethical hacker for IBM, Henderson’s job is to break into networks, applications, or physical locations to figure out how a real attacker would go about their work, exposing flaws and the impact those flaws might have on an organization’s security. Given the increase in cyber attacks and the need to bolster cyber security, there’s been a steady shift in corporations hiring their own hackers to “pen-test” (penetration test) online systems, networks, and physical locations, IBM says. In fact, Henderson is just one of the 1,000 security specialists the tech giant hired in 2015. We recently spoke to Henderson, 40, about what it’s really like to be a hacker for IBM. Here’s what he had to say: “Let me start by saying, I was a curious kid” “I grew up and still live in Austin, Texas, which has become a haven for young technologists with its vibrant computer security scene. I attended the University of Texas and studied Computer Science. “When I was 11, my father brought home our first computer. Within a week, I had become an active participant on the Bulletin Board Systems (BBS). Using these bulletin […]

Meet the 25-year-old ethical hacker who is going to guard your money transactions

hacker-featured-web

The Unified Payments Interface (UPI), an app through which RBI and major banks are creating a mini-bank on your smartphones, is in safe hands now.

Ethical hackers have been roped in to protect the UPI from any cyber threats. One such person is a 25-year-old who is going to make sure no criminal fiddles with the app.

Meet Saket Modi, whose company Lucideus Tech has been hired as one of the cyber security specialists.

“UPI isn’t a step but a leap forward. It will set a new benchmark for the world to follow. We feel proud and privileged to contribute our bit and be a part of this revolution,” Modi, CEO of Lucideus, told ET from London.

He has been working on the UPI for three months and will continue to do for next couple of years.

Through UPI, which is developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), customers will be able to transfer money from one account to another without adding the beneficiary, also saving themselves from punching in IFSC code, account number or bank’s branch name.

“There are multiple layers of security checks implemented when any transaction occurs on a bank’s mobile application using UPI. This is not just in between the user and the app but also between the banks, merchant and the UPI engine,” Modi told ET.

Not only is he assisting the UPI project, Modi is also working with many billion-dollar startups in India.

Around 19 banks will join the UPI platform.

N Rajendran, Chief Technology Officer, NPCI told ET, “NPCI systems are secured with state of the art security infrastructure with continuous monitoring and best practices. NPCI follows integrated approach to protect various NPCI product’s infrastructure and engages with various external information security industries for building secured products for the payments ecosystem.”

No ‘coincidence’ Romanian hacker Guccifer extradited amid Clinton probe

The extradition of Romanian hacker “Guccifer” to the U.S. at a critical point in the FBI’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email use is “not a coincidence,” according to an intelligence source close to the case. One of the notches on Guccifer’s cyber-crime belt was allegedly accessing the email account of Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, one of Clinton’s most prolific advice-givers when she was secretary of state. It was through that hack that Clinton’s use of a personal account — clintonemail.com — first came to light. Former law enforcement and cyber security experts said the hacker, whose real name is Marcel Lehel Lazar, could – now that he’s in the U.S. – help the FBI make the case that Clinton’s email server was compromised by a third party, one that did not have the formal backing and resources of a foreign intelligence service such as that of Russia, China or Iran. “Because of the proximity to Sidney Blumenthal and the activity involving Hillary’s emails, [the timing] seems to be something beyond curious,” said Ron Hosko, former assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division from 2012-2014. On Tuesday, Lazar appeared in an Alexandria, Va., federal courtroom for his detention hearing, […]

To protect themselves IT professionals play hacker for a day

To protect themselves IT professionals play hacker for a day

As deputy director of information services for the city of Simi Valley, Garry Boswell regularly protects the city’s networks from hackers. But Boswell, along with other information technology professionals and enthusiasts of all levels, recently had a chance to reverse roles — playing the role of a hacker to get into and sabotage a fictitious hospital’s information system. It was part of a computer-oriented Red vs. Blue Team event held at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks and sponsored by the nonprofit Information System Security Association Ventura County Chapter. The primary goal of the event was to teach IT and information security professionals “how to attack their own systems before attackers do” and learn some valuable lessons in the process. The chapter partnered with Core Security at the event, providing participants with laptop computers loaded with Core’s flagship intrusion testing software called Core Impact, which assesses and tests security vulnerabilities in an organization. Palo Alto Networks provided its next-generation firewalls to help run the event and had an engineer on hand in an adjacent room to show participants what attacks look like in real time and how the company can help manage those threats. Stephen Maiorca, president of the chapter, […]

Hacker wins “The Super Mario World”

This newsletter has devoted plenty of coverage to the ongoing legal dispute between one of the world’s most valuable companies and the nation’s law enforcement over these past few weeks. If you’re looking for updates on that front, skip to the news below. You’ll find plenty on Apple versus the Federal Bureau of Investigation there. As for this essay, I need a break. So time for a different subject. Recall that analogy one computer forensics expert used to describe how the Feds might unlock that San Bernardino shooter’s contested iPhone? Jonathan Zdziarski, an iOS hacker, said that by backing up the data stored on one of the phone’s memory chips, an investigator could try as many passcodes as needed on the device without fear of triggering a data wipe. How? Simple: continuously rewrite the chip to its original state, thus bypassing the handset’s “self-destruct” feature. Genius, really. Zdziarski compared this hypothetical technique—which he demonstrated himself—to a game of Super Mario Bros. The method is similar to how a video game player might keep reverting to a previous save point, allowing her to continuously replay a level to her liking. (Unfortunately for Zdziarski, whose metaphor has been quoted just about everywhere, […]

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

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

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.
