Federal prosecutors: Southern New Jersey faces child pornography charges, could face 20-year sentence

A southern New Jersey man is facing child pornography charges.

Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Eric Ziegler got the images and videos through a website that operated on an anonymous online network. The Williamstown man is charged with receiving child pornography and faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

The charges stem from a search warrant executed Thursday at his home. Investigators say they found 41 computer discs containing child sexual abuse, including images and video files of men having sex with young girls.

Prosecutors say law enforcement officers learned in February that a user of an online account registered at Ziegler’s home was linked to an online community of people who regularly sent and received child pornography.

Federal Bureau of Investigation seeks hacker after 1.2 billion logins are stolen

That hacker, known as “mr.grey”, was identified based on data from a cybsecurity firm that announced in August 2014 that it had determined an alleged Russian crime ring was responsible for stealing information from more than 420,000 websites,THE DOCUMENTS said. Court documents made public last week, and seen by Reuters, name a mysterious force called “mr.grey” as the hacker, or group of hackers, behind last year’s attack, which is regarded as the biggest cyber heist to date. The FBI is now on the heels of a “mr.grey”, a Russian hacker who announced on hackers forums that he is selling users’ data hacked from thousands of websites, including Facebook and Twitter; the U.S.SECURITY AGENCY has linked the foreign hacker through a Russian email id to the breach of about 1.2 billion users’ data across the internet. Hold Security’s chief information security officer, Alex Holden, told Reuters that he believes the 2011 message proves the hacker, or group of hackers, has access to a large database of stolen data.

Hacker/troll “weev” was charged in the wrong federal court – say The Third US Circuit Court of Appeals

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A federal appeals court Friday reversed and vacated the conviction and sentence of hacker and Internet troll Andrew “weev” Auernheimer. The case against Auernheimer, who has often been in solitary confinement for obtaining and disclosing personal data of about 140,000 iPad owners from a publicly available AT&T website, was seen as a test case on how far the authorities could go under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the same law that federal prosecutors were invoking against Aaron Swartz. Auernheimer was accused of passing along the e-mail addresses to Gawker, which thereafter published the information in redacted form in 2010. Auernheimer was convicted in a New Jersey federal court of a felony under the CFAA for conspiracy to access AT&T’s servers against the company’s will. The government argued that the New Jersey court was a proper venue for the case because 4,500 e-mail addresses were obtained from residents there. The authorities claimed that even if the venue was improper, is should be disregarded because it did “not affect substantial rights.” The court disagreed and suggested that Auernheimer’s home state of Arkansas, where the alleged illegal activity took place, was the proper location for trial Auernheimer’s  helped co-defendant Daniel Spitler […]

Debit card fraud impacts South Carolina Federal Credit Union

Debit card fraud impacts South Carolina Federal Credit Union

The South Carolina Federal Credit Union sent out a letter to members this week alerting them of multiple people spotting fraudulent transaction on debit cards recently and are warning them to be cautious. In the letter, the South Carolina Federal Credit Union says the security of some of these debit card users has been compromised, but the credit union itself has not been hacked. The US Secret Service tells News 2 this information could have been compromised due to the increased use of card skimmers. US Secret Service Agent in Charge of the Charleston Office, John Kenney, says, “You want to make sure that it’s the actual device that you’re using, whether it’s the ATM or the gas pump. You want to make sure that there aren’t any skimmers attached to it because we have seen an up-tick in skimmer activity. So if the device doesn’t look like it belongs to the gas station or the bank, if it looks like it’s been added on, if you see any cameras over your shoulder, you want to be very careful about using that and in fact you want not to use it and to contact local police.” He says card users […]

No Notification Given To Millions Of Federal Employees About Security Data Hacking

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

As many as 21.5 million federal employees’ security clearance data has been hacked. The United States government has so far not intimated any of the federal employees whose security clearance data were hacked and the hacking has taken place more than 3 months ago. This is a sad state of affairs as no federal employee is sure as to whether his or her data has been hacked or not. The information that the employees have not been intimated about their account hacking was confirmed by the government officials. The Office of the Personnel Management (OPM) is the agency whose data have become a soft target for the hackers and has been hacked easily. The OPM has said that the Defense Department will be starting to notify the employee and contractors whose accounts have been compromised later this month. The notifications will be sent for several weeks until all the 21.5 million account users are informed and all notifications about the hacking will be sent directly to the impacted staff. The OPM has also now hired a contractor to take care of the credit ratings and to protect the identities of the employees whose personal data and information was hacked. OPM […]

D.C. Federal Court To Hold Hearing On NSA Spy Case

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

WASHINGTON, Sept. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Almost two years ago, on December 16, 2013, Judge Richard J. Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a preliminary injunction barring the continued unconstitutional collection by the National Security Agency and other government defendants, including President Barack Obama, of telephonic metadata of not just plaintiffs Larry Klayman and Charlie Strange, but in effect hundreds of millions of Americans (case number 13-cv-00851). This historic decision, the indirect result of the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden, was then appealed by the Obama administration. Last Friday, the federal appeals court vacated Judge Leon’s preliminary injunction, which had been stayed in any event pending appeal, and sent the case back to Judge Leon, presumably to allow for discovery into the unconstitutional surveillance in violation of the Fourth Amendment. In his order of December 16, 2013, Judge Leon had called this spying “almost-Orwellian.” After the ruling came down from the D.C. Circuit, Judge Leon immediately set a hearing for this Wednesday, but the Obama Justice Department, seeking to again delay the case, asked for a postponement, which Judge Leon rejected just minutes after the government’s motion was filed. It is thus clear that the […]

Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Hit by Cyber Attack

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

According to investigative reporter Brian Krebs, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has acknowledged that its domain name servers were hijacked last month by attackers who redirected Web searches and queries for domains run by the St. Louis Fed to phishing sites. The St. Louis Fed’s advisory states that “on April 24, 2015, computer hackers manipulated routing settings at a domain name service (DNS) vendor used by the St. Louis Fed so that they could automatically redirect some of the Bank’s Web traffic that day to rogue Web pages they created to simulate the look of the St. Louis Fed’s research.stlouisfed.org website, including Web pages for FRED, FRASER, GeoFRED and ALFRED.” The advisory notes that “users who were redirected to one of these phony websites may have been unknowingly exposed to vulnerabilities that the hackers may have put there, such as phishing, malware and access to user names and passwords.” As a result, the St. Louis Fed says, the attackers may have accessed the user name and password of anyone who tried to log into research.stlouisfed.org on April 24, 2015. Passwords have been reset in response. While a St. Louis Fed spokeswoman told The New York Times that she […]

Ravages of Revenge Porn Spur Federal Crime Push

(WOMENSENEWS)– When her high school boyfriend contacted her in 2009, 19 years after they’d graduated and parted ways, Annmarie Chiarini said all of her old teenage feelings came rushing back. “It was that high school fantasy,” said Chiarini, 44, a community college English professor and single mother. “We rekindled the relationship.” They dated for about seven months, commuting between her home in Maryland and his in New Jersey, she said. During that time, Chiarini had reluctantly acquiesced to her boyfriend’s repeated requests to photograph her nude. “At the time I didn’t want to,” she said. “I thought my discomfort was body image stuff, but in hindsight I realize I didn’t trust him.” When her boyfriend began to reveal a jealous controlling side, Chiarini told him it was time to end things. That is when her nightmare started, she said. Her ex accused her of sleeping with the men he saw on her Facebook page and told her if she didn’t confess to the affairs, he’d auction her nude photos on eBay, she said. The eBay posting went up the day after he made the threat. Chiarini’s ex-boyfriend used her eBay and email accounts to tell friends and family about the […]
