Ars reports that last week’s hack of Boxee revealed the data, including username, email address, passwords and forum messages of over 154000 users. The data is published online in a massive MySQL file of about 800 MB in size which is still circulating online.
Boxee.tv is a web based tv service that was acquired by Samsung last year. Ars reports that the breach occurred no later than last week, when a full copy of the purloined forum data became widely available, Scott A. McIntyre, a security researcher in Australia, told Ars.
On Tuesday, officials from password management service LastPass began warning customers with e-mail addresses included in an 800 megabyte file that’s still circulating online.
The file contains personal data associated with 158,128 user accounts, about 172,000 e- mail addresses, and the cryptographically scrambled passwords that corresponded to those Boxee accounts, LastPass said.
The dump also included a wealth of other details, such as user birth dates, IP addresses, site activity, full message histories, and password changes. All user messages sent through the service were included as part of the leak.
Security research at Infosec claims he had found a serious bug in eBay ProStores that enabled him to see the cradit card details of the customers in plain text. Mark Litchfield, an infosec pro at Securatary, told he discovered a flaw in eBay-owned ProStores that not only opened the door to store account hijackers, but also leaked “full access to all their customers PII [Personally identifiable information] as well as their full credit information in clear text.”
ProStores hosts online shops for eBay sellers to use to flog their stuff, and provides a wizard for creating the traders’ websites.
Mark Litchfield said it was a very serious bug. I had reported it to eBay in Feb but it took them almost two months to fix it on March 20. He said that in order to gain control of a victim’s eBay ProStores site, the attacker must create her own ProStores account – there’s a handy 30-day free trial available – and then use that as a springboard to infiltrate the victim’s web bazaar.
”In short, it was possible to change the password of another administrator, then you could log in as that user with full administrative access to the store,” Litchfied claimed. ” With this attack I guess I was more shocked than anything to find the credit card information being displayed back in clear text. If people are buying things online, why would the full card information need to returned in clear text to the administrator?”
LinkedIn is a social networking site for professionals to connect and communicate. The site has been very popular among professionals as it was relatively secure and reliable. However, a Google chrome website browser’s ad-on tool known as Sell Hack can expose the email address linked with the profiles of LinkedIn Users. This Google extension has created a legal controversy between LinkedIn and Sell Hack. Sell Hack is available as a free extension to the Chrome browser that, once installed, will pop up a “hack in” button on LinkedIn profiles. Users can then find the email address associated with the account even if they are not connected. LinkedIn has told it is taking legal action against the Sell Hack. However Sell Hack denies that it had any intention to expose the privacy of LinkedIn users. It is just incident which we had no intention of. Says Sell Hack. Meanwhile, LinkedIn has advices users to uninstall the ad-on,”LinkedIn members who downloaded Sell Hack should uninstall it immediately and contact Sell Hack requesting that their data be deleted.” “We are doing everything we can to shut Sell Hack down. On 31 March LinkedIn’s legal team delivered Sell Hack a cease-and-desist letter as a result of several violations,” a spokesman told the BBC.
According to “The Guardian” United Kindom’s ministry of defense had started a multi million pound research which will be the new face of cyberwarfare in near future.
The research includes how social media like twitter and facebook can be used to win a psychological war and how to change public beliefs for military purpose. Researched woring under UK’s minitry of defense are working on the impact of live video-sharing , which is being funded by the Uk government in partnership with different Defense contractors.
The guardian said: “We have seen a list of those hired to deliver research projects, which have titles such as Understanding Online Avatars, Cognitive and Behaviour Concepts of Cyber Activities, and Novel Techniques for Public Sentiment and Perception Elicitation , centre of excellence” managed by BAE Systems, which has received about £20m-worth of MoD funding since 2012. The MoD plans to procure a further £10m-worth of research through the centre this year.
Situation is pretty critical government is spoiling Internet along with social media to turn public in favor of there negative propaganda. it seems there is a need of a new revolution to stop these governments from turning internet into a “HELL”.
