Cyber Security Expert Mikko Hyppönen Worries About Extremists With Computers

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Cyber security expert Mikko Hyppönen said he worries about a new group of hackers who are willing to perpetrate the kinds of attacks even cyber criminals wouldn’t consider — extremists. “The Islamic State is the first extremist group that has a credible offensive cyber capability,” said F-Secure Chief Research Officer Hyppönen, speaking Tuesday at the Wall Street Journal’s WSJDLive conference in Laguna Beach, Calif. “Clearly, this situation isn’t getting better. It’s getting worse.” Hypponen said hackers are moving from Europe to Syria, where officials worry they could launch attacks that shut down computer networks or damage critical infrastructure. He said the threat is so serious, a U.S. drone strike this summer targeted a British hacker who, U.S. and European officials said, had become a top cyber expert for the Islamic State in Syria. Authorities believe the hacker led the CyberCaliphate, a hacking group which in January attacked a Twitter account belonging to the Pentagon. Asked to describe a “horror story,” Hyppönen didn’t hesitate. He said the threat is that these groups will perpetrate an attack that cyber criminals wouldn’t even consider — because there’s no money in it. They might, for example, target the Siemens systems that control 50 percent of the world’s factory equipment. “Extremists might be […]

What You Need to Know About Your New ‘Chipped’ Credit Cards

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Dipping your chip isn’t just about salsa anymore. It’s the latest mode of credit and debit card use, and it should make you less vulnerable to theft. You’ve probably noticed the small computer chip (sometimes called an EMV chip for Eurocard, MasterCard, Visa) embedded in the front of credit and debit cards issued in the past year or so. Learning to use it may take a little practice, but it should become second-nature soon enough. How it works Instead of swiping the magnetic strip on the back, you will insert the card into a slot – a practice called dipping – usually faceup. Leave it there; you need to give the computer in the register and the chip in your card a chance to have a little talk. From our Solutions Center: Find a better credit card in seconds There will be some prompts on the screen, asking you, for one, to verify the amount of the transaction. For now, you will most likely need to sign, just as you have been with the old cards. The technology is moving toward using a PIN instead of signing, but that’s likely a couple of years away, at least in the United States. […]

Trigaux: Worried about computer hacking? It’s only going to get worse

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

One of the nation’s leading cybersecurity experts warned an audience gathered at the annual Florida Center for Cybersecurity conference Tuesday that the onslaught of hacker attacks against the government, business and individuals is only going to accelerate in the coming years without some aggressive countermeasures. “It is not going to stop” warned Gen. Keith Alexander, the former head of U.S. Cyber Command and past director of the National Security Agency, in keynote remarks at the University of South Florida. That was the theme in a wide range of breakout sessions held to explore the dangerously escalating pace of hacker intrusions. Alexander acknowledged no security is foolproof, but he urged attendees from business, technology firms, the military and students pursuing the new USF master’s degree in cybersecurity that strong security that can turn back 90 percent of hacker attempts can protect proprietary data and discourage further attacks. Major newspapers seem to be full of stories lately on the rising barrage of hacks. The Wall Street Journalreported in recent days that cyberwar will become a mainstream battlefield fought by more and more nations. Yet the newspaper’s parent, Dow Jones, found itself informing its customers that it, too, was recently hacked and as […]

EU Digital Commish: Ja, we should have done more about NSA spying

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Europe’s outspoken digi Commissioner, Günther H-dot Oettinger has admitted that the European Commission did too little, too late in reaction to Edward Snowden’s NSA spying revelations. Following a landmark ruling by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) striking down the EU-US data sharing Safe Harbor agreement on Tuesday, Oetti told German daily Der Spiegel that “a mandatory government agreement would be the best solution” but that he didn’t believe it was likely to happen. The second-best option is a re-negotiated arrangement, said Oettinger, for once sticking to the Commission official line. He said clarity was urgently needed for “the many medium-sized companies that are now feeling insecure”. Safe Harbor is the workaround agreement between the EU and the US that allows international companies to transfer Europeans’ personal data to the US even though the US does not meet the adequacy standards for EU data protection law. Companies signed up to a voluntary code of conduct that was then enforced by the American Federal Trade Commission (FTC). But on Tuesday, the ECJ ruled that the pact was unsound, since it cannot protect EU personal data from snooping by the US National Security Agency and other American agencies. Oettinger acknowledged that the […]

Google’s Translate about to get a whole lot more useful… on Android 6 Marshmallow devices

Google has definitely been making strides with its Translate app, steadily growing it to a tool that gets more and more useful by the day. The app can not only translate written texts, but also listen to spoken word and then reproduce it via the phone’s text-to-speech, or use your phone’s camera and translate print text in real-time. Pretty impressive, “this is the future”-type of stuff right there.

The company has just announced an upcoming update, which will bring about a feature not as cool as the ones listed above, but definitely just as practical, if not more so. The new Translate will …

iOS 9 Review: here’s all you should be excited about

Those of you who’ve been around iPhones for a while may still hold fond memories of iPhone OS – the granddaddy of Apple’s iOS operating system. Sure, at first it didn’t have multitasking, it didn’t have Copy and Paste functionality, and you couldn’t even set a home screen wallpaper, but it was loved for its unparalleled ease of use. Needless to say, Apple’s mobile OS has evolved drastically since then, but it is still based on the core principle of keeping things simple and intuitive. And this is surely one of the reasons why iPhones’ user satisfaction ratings are off …

OBAMA COMPLAINS ABOUT CHINESE CYBER-ESPIONAGE

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A few weeks ahead of a visit to Washington from Chinese President Xi Jinping, President Obama is talking tough about Chinese cyber-attacks. “We’ve made very clear to the Chinese that there are certain practices that they’re engaging in that we know are emanating from China and are not acceptable,” Obama said in an appearance at Ft. Meade. “And we can choose to make this an area of competition – which I guarantee you we’ll win if we have to – or, alternatively, we can come to an agreement in which we say, this isn’t helping anybody. Let’s instead try to have some basic rules of the road in terms of how we operate.” The Hill notes that the Administration is “reportedly weighing sanctions against Chinese interests or companies in response to the hacks.” Chinese government hackers have reportedly stolen commercial data from many U.S. companies, and personal data about many American government employees — including those with security clearances, plus private data from Americans’ health-care companies. Obama has done little or nothing to stop this coast-to-coast raiding of Americans’ property, but has instead worked elsewhere to boost the Democratic party’s political power. In the Pacific, China’s government is building new island-bases […]

Some 10 hours more, and Apple’s event scheduled to take place at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, which has a seating capacity of over 7,000 people, will begin. As the list of possible items on the company’s agenda for the press conference is quite long, we thought we should take your pulse and see which of the rumored devices you’re most interested in.
