Obama Lets NSA Use Zero-Day Exploits by labeling it as ‘National Security Need’

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

On Saturday, the Senior Administration Officials cast light on the subject of Internet Security and said President Obama has clearly decided that whenever the U.S. Intelligence agency like NSA discovers major vulnerabilities, in most of the situations the agency should reveal them rather than exploiting for national purpose, according to The New York Times.OBAMA’s POLICY WITH LOOPHOLE FOR NSAYet, there is an exception to the above statement, as Mr. President carved a detailed exception to the policy “Unless there is a clear national security or law enforcement need,” which means that the policy creates a loophole for the spying agencies like NSA to sustain their surveillance programs by exploiting security vulnerabilities to create Cyber Weapons.After three-month review of recommendations [PDF-file], the Final Report of the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies was submitted to Mr. Obama on last December, out of which one of the recommendation on page no. 37 states that, “In rare instances, US policy may briefly authorize using a Zero Day for high priority intelligence collection, following senior, interagency review involving all appropriate departments.”Obama took this new decision in January this year, but the elements of decision disclosed just one day after the story of HeartBleed […]

New free tool detects Hacking Team exploits

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A security company has released a free tool to users who suspect they may be a victim of Hacking Team’s exploit cache. Hacking Team is a secretive Milan-based firm which specializes in the sale of surveillance tools, malware and exploits to governments, law enforcement and private firms worldwide. The firm hit the spotlight in recent times after becoming the victim of a cyberattack, in which a hacker walked away with over 400 gigabytes in stolen corporate data. The investigation is yet to reveal who is responsible for the data breach — although suspicions have turned toward the possibility of an insider job. Among leaked financial reports, customer lists and service presentations, emails detailing zero-day exploits and proof-of-concept examples are being analyzed as researchers dig through the firm’s stolen data. Software vendors are racing to patch previously unknown vulnerabilities in their systems. Adobe andMicrosoft, among others, have issued security patches to make Hacking Team’s exploits and tools obsolete. In the meantime, users are left to wonder if they have been infected with Hacking Team malware, of which some tools are so virulent they stay on a system even after hard disk wipes and removals. Researchers at Rook Security have decided to […]

Cyberspies love exploits from Hacking Team leak

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The leaked files from surveillance software maker Hacking Team have proven to be a great resource for cyberespionage groups, which have used at least two Flash Player exploits from the company’s arsenal. Last Tuesday, security researchers from security firm FireEye detected targeted attacks against organizations in Japan, with the attackers using an exploit for CVE-2015-5122, a Flash Player vulnerability patched by Adobe Systems that same day. The vulnerability was publicly known before that date because an exploit for it was found in the 400GB data cache recently leaked by a hacker from Milan-based Hacking Team. An unknown hacker broke into the computer network of Hacking Team, a company that sells computer surveillance software and intrusion tools to government agencies worldwide. The attacker released email communications, client lists, files, source code, documentation and previously unknown software exploits. The group of attackers that targeted the Japanese organizations did so through strategic Web compromises, also known as watering hole attacks. The tactic involves compromising websites that are typically visited by organizations from particular industries. Two websites compromised in this case belonged to Japan’s International Hospitality and Conference Service Association (IHCSA) and Cosmetech, a Japanese cosmetics company. Once victims visited those websites, malicious scripts […]
