UK prosecutors mull charges for News Corp. over hacking

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

LONDON (AP) — British prosecutors say they are considering corporate charges against Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. over phone hacking at the now-defunct News of the World tabloid. The news comes amid reports that former editor and Murdoch lieutenant Rebekah Brooks is poised to return to the company. London’s Metropolitan Police said Saturday it had submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service last month. Prosecutors confirmed they had “received a full file of evidence for consideration of corporate liability charges” relating to phone hacking. A decision about whether to prosecute rests with Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders. Meanwhile, the Financial Times reported that former News of the World editor Brooks, who quit News Corp. when the hacking scandal broke four years ago, would return to head Murdoch’s British newspaper division, which includes the Times, Sunday Times and The Sun newspapers. News Corp. confirmed holding talks with 47-year-old Brooks but said it had no announcement. Murdoch shut down the News of the World, Britain’s top-selling newspaper, in July 2011 after the revelation that it had hacked into the phone of a 13-year-old murder victim. Brooks, a close confidante of Murdoch and a friend of British Prime Minister David Cameron, was […]

Charges dropped in suspected Lancaster County drug stop

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

LINCOLN, Neb. —Prosecutors in Lincoln dropped criminal charges in a case involving suspected drug money seized from a traffic stop. [Video: Charges dropped in suspected Lancaster County drug stop] A judge ruled the defendant had the right to independently test the cash for traces of narcotics, but found out the money was already gone. A traffic stop in Interstate 80 in April 2014 led to the seizure of $20,000 in neatly bundled cash and a small amount of suspected cocaine. Months later, when the attorney representing one of the defendants — Joseph Hacker, 29 — wanted to test the cash, it wasn’t available. “Unfortunately the cash had gone to the bank and back into the stream of commerce before we had the opportunity to independently test it,” John Berry said. A judge ruled that under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment, the state had a duty to preserve the evidence. Since it didn’t, it couldn’t use at trial the information that a drug dog detected the odor of narcotics on the cash. Last week, prosecutors dropped felony charges against Hacker. “I think as we see more and more interstate drug stops where cash is being seized, we’re going to […]

Accused British hacker caught, faces charges in N.J.

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

An accused hacker was arrested in England Wednesday and is facing extradition to New Jersey where he’s facing charges of breaking into the computer systems of NASA and other federal agencies to steal reams of confidential data, federal prosecutors say. Lauri Love, 29, was arrested in Stradishall, England on an extradition warrant issued by federal prosecutors in the U.S., authorities say. Love was indicted in New Jersey in October 2013 on a charge of accessing the computer of a U.S. department or agency without authorization. New Jersey federal prosecutors say Love managed to infiltrate computer networks for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency, causing millions of dollars in losses. At the time of his arrest, New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said the computer breach included personal information belonging to U.S. servicemen and women as well as military data. “Such conduct endangers the security of our country and is an affront to those who serve,” Fishman said. Prosecutors say that once Love and others broke into the computer systems, they placed hidden “shells” or “back doors” in the systems, which enabled them to return at a later date so they could steal confidential […]

Lizard Squad Teen Hacker Convicted On Over 50K Charges Of Cyber-Crime

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A teenage member of the notorious hacking group Lizard Squad has received a two-year suspended sentence for numerous cyber crimes. All tallied, he was convicted of 50,700 charges related to computer crimes, and in addition to his two-year suspended sentence, he must also undergo monitoring of his online activities. He will not serve any time behind bars. His name is Julius Kivimaki, or “Zeekill” if going by his online handle. The 17-year-old played a role in the distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on Microsoft’s Xbox Live and Sony’s PlayStation Network in December of last year. Ironically enough, it was Kim Dotcom who convinced Lizard Squad to call off the attacks, which he did by offering the hacking organization 3,000 lifetime premium Mega accounts worth $99 each. Not long after, British law enforcement agents nabbed 22-year-old  Vinni Omari, a self-professed member of Lizard Squad, and raided his home. He was one of two individuals that cybersecurity reporter Brian Krebs identified as being responsible for the attacks, Kivimaki being the other. Even though Kivimaki was convicted on more than 50,000 computer crimes, the lack of jail time is disturbing to some. Count Blair Strater among them. Strater claims to be a victim of Kivimaki’s […]

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — Former D.C. Fire inspector Kimberley Pinkney, who is accused of misusing work credit cards, accepted a plea agreement Monday. Pinkney is charged with second-degree felony fraud for misusing government credit cards. Investigators said Pinkney used gas cards that were intended for fueling up her work vehicle to buy gas for her personal car, as well as other things. The amount was more than $11,000 dollars. PREVIOUS STORY: DC Fire employees investigated for fraud Investigators said the fraud occurred over a three year period. Suspicious activity such as filling up more gas than the vehicle could take and getting gas more than once a day raised red flags. Pinkney could face up to three years and be forced to pay restitution. Terrell McCray, another D.C. Fire employee, is also facing fraud charges. His case is still pending. Pinkney’s sentencing is set for May 5th. Pinkney was arrested in January following an investigation. Officials say she has since resigned from the D.C.
