Hacker claims to have breached CIA director’s personal email

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

An anonymous hacker claims to have breached CIA Director John Brennan‘s personal email account and has posted documents online, including a list of email addresses purportedly from Brennan’s contact file. The CIA said it referred the matter to the proper authorities, but would not comment further. The hacker spoke to the New York Post, which described him in an article published Sunday as “a stoner high school student,” motivated by his opposition to U.S. foreign policy and support for Palestinians. His Twitter account, @phphax, includes links to files that he says are Brennan’s contact list, a log of phone calls by then-CIA deputy director Avril Haines, and other documents. The Post said he didn’t reveal his name or where he lived. The hacker also claimed to have breached a Comcast account belonging to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and released what appeared to be personal information. One document purporting to come from Brennan’s AOL email account contains a spreadsheet of people, including senior intelligence officials, along with their Social Security numbers, although the hacker redacted the numbers in the version he posted on Twitter. It’s unclear why Brennan would have stored such a document in his private email account. Based […]

IRS hacked, 100,000 tax accounts breached

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Criminals hacked into an Internal Revenue Service website and gained access to approximately 100,000 tax accounts, the agency said Tuesday. Another 100,000 attempts were made but were not successful. The attack appears to have first begun in February, the agency said. The hackers got in by taking information about taxpayers they’d acquired from other sources and using it to correctly answer several personal identity verification questions in the IRS’ “Get Transcript” application, the IRS said in a statement. This allowed them to get information about tax accounts through the application. The information stolen included Social Security information, date of birth and street address. The Get Transcript application allows users to view their tax account transactions, line-by-line tax return information or wage and income reported to the IRS for a specific tax year. It was used to securely retrieve approximately 23 million taxpayer transcripts last year, the IRS said. The information the hackers used to get in was probably previously stolen by other hackers who then sold it on the open market, said Rob Roy, chief technology officer ofHP Enterprise Security Products. The hackers who bought it “appear to have hired an army of people to submit over 200,000 queries into […]

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Health insurer Anthem is admitting hackers breached its computer database and stole personal data from millions of its current and former members. The attack was only discovered last week. It impacts health plans provided by Anthem Blue Cross, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Amerigroup, Caremore, Unicare, Healthlink, and DeCare. Anthem, which is the country’s second-largest health insurer, says the hackers gained access to a database containing the personal information for approximately 80 million of its customers and employees. The stolen data includes names, birth dates, medical and Social Security numbers, street addresses, e-mail addresses, as well as employment and income data. Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish says there is no evidence the hackers accessed bank or credit card numbers, or medical data such as claims information, test results or diagnostic codes. The company says the external cyber attack was “very sophisticated” and once it was discovered they contacted the FBI. So far there is no indication as to whom may have carried out the attack. Anthem has hired cyber security firm Mandiant to evaluate their systems in an attempt to prevent hackers from breaching […]
