Men who used fake identities wanted by police

POLICE have stepped up the hunt for two men who were using fake identity cards around Europe and wiring money to relatives of the Paris attacks ringleader. It was discovered the men, who disguised themselves as Samir Bouzid and Soufiane Kayal, sent more than AUD$1000 to Hasna Aitbouchlachen, the cousin of ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the day before she was blown up in a police raid in Paris last month. The real identity of the men using the fake IDs is not yet known. The ID of Kayal was used to rent a house in Aurvelias, a town in southern Belgium, which was used as a hide-out to plan to Paris attacks, police said. Bouzid’s ID was used to wire the money. Belgian prosecutors have warned people about the suspects. “These men are armed and dangerous,” they said. “Anyone who sees those men is asked not to undertake any initiative and to contact immediately the police.” Salad Abdeslam is also wanted by authorities and it is believed the men disguised as Bouzid and Kayal helped him travel to Hungary in September. Abdeslam’s brother blew himself up outside the cafe Comptoir Voltaire but his own involvement in the Paris attacks is still […]

Popular Navigation App hijacked with Fake Bots to Cause Traffic Jam

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Beware! Hackers can cause Traffic jams with just a navigation Smartphone application. Two Israeli students were assigned by college to hack Google-owned Waze GPS app, an Israeli-made Smartphone app that provides directions and alerts drivers to traffic and accidents.Shir Yadid and Meital Ben-Sinai, fourth-year students at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, with the help of two advisers created a virtual program that successfully caused the popular navigation application Waze to report fake traffic jams, Haaretz reported.They successfully launched a demo cyber attack against the popular navigation app, with no evil intention to cause any damage to the app, instead it was a simple assignment handed over to these students to demonstrate up to what a malicious hacker could do by creating a fake traffic jam on any popular app, like Waze that provides real-time traffic updates and notifications to users on the road.To carry out their project, the students created and used a virtual program that enacted Smartphones and registered thousands of fake Waze users with false GPS coordinates. Then this army of fake users crowdsourced false road conditions to the app claiming to be stuck in traffic jam at the false GPS coordinates, potentially causing scramble. Doctoral student Nimrod Partush came up […]

In the world of Smart devices where our Smartphones knows more than we know ourselves.To keep our device protected from harmful viruses, malware or spyware, we totally depend on various security products such as antivirus, firewall and privacy guard apps, that we typically install from some trusted sources, Google Play Store.

Report: Iran-based hackers spy using fake LinkedIn profiles

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Washington (CNN)A group of suspected Iranian hackers are using a sophisticated network of fake LinkedIn profiles to spy on unsuspecting targets worldwide — including the U.S. — according to a new report. The fake personas fell into two groups: one set that were fully developed profiles posing as recruiters for major worldwide government contractors and international corporations, and another set that were less developed and designed to lend legitimacy to the primary accounts through endorsements and connections. The report from computer company Dell’s Secure Works unit identified the group behind the profiles as “TG 2889,” and researchers said there was strong circumstantial evidence pointing to the group operating out of Iran. The hackers employed a number of companies matched to computer domains used in attacks that had previously been attributed to cyberattackers from Iran, and the spread of targets in the Middle East, Arab states, North Africa and the U.S. would be consistent with an Iranian source. Researchers said the cyberspies were posing mainly as recruiters from major international companies including Northrop Grumman, General Motors, Teledyne Technologies, Doosan and Airbus. The crew seemed to be having success — more than 200 legitimate LinkedIn users had connected with the 25 fake […]

Cuomo to college students: fake IDs pose identity theft risk

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is warning college students about the risks of buying fake IDs online. Cuomo says state investigators have discovered “dozens” of cases of identity theft that occurred after the victim tried to purchase fake IDs online. Officials say the victims went online to buy fake driver’s licenses and handed over their name, address, date of birth and other personal details to scam artists who used the information to commit identity theft. Cuomo notes that the effects of identity theft can linger for years and says getting a fake ID isn’t worth the risk of getting caught or of being victimized by identity thieves. The warning from the Democratic governor comes as thousands of students return to college for the start of fall classes.

DEF CON wraps up its 23rd year in Las Vegas today, and the first wave of news reports show the notorious hacker conference’s non-technical and sensational talks grabbing the first round of headlines. As closing ceremonies wrap up, media reports about DEF CON 23 make their way online. While we’ll see more analysis in the coming week, the first wave of news gives a taste of what happened at the biggest DEF CON yet. Previously: Death certificates, safes, weapons and Teslas: DEF CON 23 Preliminary estimates have attendance around 20,000 at the conference’s new, expanded digs across both Paris and Bally’s hotels on the Las Vegas strip. The conference packed attendees, talks, contests, expo and hacking areas into many sprawling (huge!) ballrooms in both hotels and on multiple floors. There was so much going on, it was very difficult (if not impossible) to see everything. The first reports, below, show just how diverse the event’s range has become.
