Ransomware, bogus emails from your ‘boss’ mark growing skill of cyber-criminals

Cyber-criminals are hacking into corporate computer systems and using the public profiles of top executives to fine-tune email scams that are duping Canadians out of hundreds of millions of dollars each year, a CBC News investigation has discovered. “It came on the scene in a massive way, from virtually nothing to $19 million in 2014” in losses reported, said Daniel Williams of the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, a federal government agency. He also says that research by the CAFC and police suggests that less than three per cent of these email scams ever gets reported, meaning the incidents and the losses are probably much higher. “Most probably in the range of $500 million to $1 billion,” Williams says. “It’s big, big money. It’s very organized, very sophisticated crime groups with a lot of resources putting a lot of effort … really on an industrial scale.” Source: http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/ransomware-cyber-scams-bogus-emails-1.3314221

Cybercriminals Targeting Real Estate Transactions

Small real estate businesses, agents and their clients are fast becoming the targets of sophisticated cyber scammers. That’s according to panelists at the Risk Management and License Law Forum yesterday at the 2015REALTORS® Conference & Expo, who discussed potential threats and offered tips for agents to protect themselves and their businesses and clients from cyber-attacks. Melanie Wyne, National Association of Realtors® technology policy expert said that while we often hear in the news about large companies falling victim to hackers, small businesses, which often lack the vast technology and legal teams of larger businesses, actually account for the majority of attacks. “Small businesses need to pay just as much attention as large companies to possible cyber threats,” she said. Darity Wesley, founder of the Lotus Law Center, said hackers are seeking personally identifiable information, data that could potentially identify a specific individual, such as credit card or bank account information, login credentials, employment details or a physical address, e-mail address, and phone or social security number. “Most people don’t know the vast amount of data stored about them in a variety of systems,” said Wesley. “Identity thieves can do a lot of damage with this information; your credit and whole life could […]

TalkTalk hack was just friends having a laugh: Cyber-criminals who witnessed data breach said there were no criminal mastermind behind attack… and they just did it

Hackers have claimed ‘at least 25’ cyber-criminals had access to TalkTalk customers’ personal information following the attack on the company. Four people who claim to have witnessed the attack unfolding, including one who said they were involved, told Channel 4 News that it was ‘fun’ to carry out the hack which has affected more than a million customers. An expert told the programme that a flaw in TalkTalk’s security was easily found by hackers using Google. The hackers claimed there was no criminal mastermind behind the attack, it was merely a group of friends ‘laughing’ about a flaw they had exposed in the company’s security. They said the break in took place days before TalkTalk uncovered it on Wednesday, October 22. One hacker said: ‘It was in a Skype group call…with a lot of laughing and making fun of TalkTalk.’ They added: ‘There was no group, it was just a few friends laughing about a company with bad security. It’s fun for us.’ Another said he was ‘shocked’ that such a major company did not have adequate security. He said: ‘I tweeted TalkTalk about an hour before everything happened and they weren’t interested, so I thought f*** them, their security […]
