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 […]

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

tr

A federal appeals court reversed and vacated the conviction and sentence of hacker and Internet troll Andrew “weev” Auernheimer. How strange is this that the criminal has to wait for his call from court when it is still not confirmed which is the right venue for his case. 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 …continue reading
