More than two-thirds of German industrial companies have been victims of digital crime in the past two years, according to a survey carried out by Bitkom, Germany’s IT, telecoms and new media industry association. The most common offence was the simple theft of equipment such as computers, smartphones or tablets, but a fifth of companies surveyed reported that sensitive documents, components or designs had been stolen, while 18 percent said their production had been sabotaged with the aim of damaging or paralyzing it. Such crimes cost German manufacturing industry more than 22 billion euros ($25 billion) a year, Bitkom estimated following its survey of 504 German manufacturing companies with at least 10 employees. “With the digitization of production and the networking of machines over the Internet, new contact points arise that are vulnerable to attack,” Winfried Holz, a Bitkom executive committee member, said in a statement issued at the Hannover Messe industry trade fair. “German industry, with its numerous hidden champions, is an attractive target for cybercriminals and foreign intelligence services,” he added.

$21mn contract to protect Chinese hacking victims broke gov’t rules, IG memo finds

The Inspector General of the Office of Personnel Management found “significant deficiencies” in the process for hiring contractors to protect millions of federal employees whose personal information was accessed by hackers linked to China last year. “We determined that the [Office of Personnel Management] did not award the … contract in compliance with the [Federal Acquisition Regulation] and [Office of Personnel Management] policies and procedures, which led to [the agency] selecting the wrong contracting vehicle,” Patrick McFarland, OPM Inspector General, wrote to OPM Director Beth Cobert, according to the Washington Post. “While we are unable to determine whether the issues we uncovered are significant enough to have impacted the award of the contract…it is evident that significant deficiencies existed… over the contract award process.

Jury finds Apple infringed on a Univeristy of Wisconsin patent with the A7, A8 and A8X chipsets

A jury has ruled that Apple infringed on a patent owned by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s licensing arm, and could be forced to pay as much as $862 million in damages. The patent covers a method used to make processors run more efficiently, and was found to be used by Apple on its A7, A8 and A8X chipsets.

The A7 is found inside the Apple iPhone 5s, while the A8 is employed by the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus and Apple iPad mini 4. The Apple iPad Air 2 is powered by the A8X. Apple’s legal team tried to convince the jury that the patent in question was not valid. The tech titan …

Study finds that Android lock patterns tend to be too simple, just like passwords

A study conduced by a woman named Marte Løge, a graduate of Norwegian University of Science and Technology, found that Android users choose to set similar lock patterns that might be too easy for others to figure out. The study looked at 4000 patterns created and discovered that 77% of the patterns started from one of the four corners. 44% of the patterns created began from the top left corner.

Obviously, the more nodes used in the creation of the pattern, the larger the number of possible combinations and the harder it is for someone to discover your lock screen pattern. The average number …

Georgia Tech Finds 11 Deep Security Flaws in Chrome, Firefox

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The security researchers developed a new cyber-security analysis method that discovered the holes buried deeper in the systems. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology College of Computing earlier this year found 11 previously undiscovered flaws in two of the most widely used Internet browsers—Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Worry not, however: The flaws have long been fixed.The security researchers developed a new cyber-security analysis method that discovered the holes buried deep in the systems. They were rewarded for their work with the Internet Defense Prize, an award presented by Facebook, in partnership with USENIX, at the 24th USENIX Security Symposium that ended Aug. 14.Ph.D. students Byoungyoung Lee and Chengyu Song, along with Professors Taesoo Kim and Wenke Lee(pictured), received $100,000 from Facebook to continue their research to make the Internet safer.Their research paper, “Type Casting Verification: Stopping an Emerging Attack Vector,” explores vulnerabilities in C++ programs—such as in Chrome and Firefox—that result from “bad casting” or “type confusion.” Bad casting enables an attacker to corrupt the memory in a browser so that it follows a malicious logic instead of proper instructions. The researchers developed a new, proprietary detection tool called CAVER to catch them. CAVER is a run-time detection […]

European Commission reportedly finds no evidence of collusion between Apple and record labels

Apple Music has certainly cast a spotlight on Apple over antitrust concerns, but a new report claims that European regulators have looked into the tech giant’s deals with music labels and found no evidence of collusion. From Re/Code:

Investigators examined whether the labels conspired with one another or with Apple on Apple’s new streaming music service in a way that would hurt rivals. The probe failed to turn up any illegal activity, though the EU will continue to monitor the market, sources said.

Apart from the European Commission, Apple Music is also being scrutinized by concerned consumers and regulators in the U.S.. In late July, U.S. Senator Al Franken penned a letter to the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission urging the agencies to look into Apple’s licensing agreements. At the same time, consumer advocacy group, Consumer Watchdog, also called for an investigation by the agencies.

For its part, the FTC is said to already be leading an investigation to determine whether Apple’s 30% cut of subscription fees from apps on its App Store, particularly from music streaming services like Spotify, is anticompetitive.

Risk Evaluation Report Finds Mobile Banking Leaves Some Banks More Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

While mobile banking is no doubt convenient for customers – and banks – there’s a significant downside to the fact that more and more financial institutions are using the technology: an increased risk that your personal information will fall in the hands of a cyber criminal. A new report [PDF] from the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency suggests that banks’ strategies to implement mobile technology often leaves their infrastructure open to cyber attacks, the Chicago Tribune reports. According to the OCC’s semiannual risk perspective report released on Tuesday, banks are increasingly embracing the use of technology such as cloud computing and mobile banking to stave off the competition. While the ease of mobile banking and other advances can not only save customers time but save banks money, the OCC found that these systems can “increase exposure to technological and operational risk.” “Banks and their employees, customers and third-party service providers continue to be vulnerable to cyberattacks that can compromise data or systems or allow criminals to illegally obtain personally identifiable information,” the report states. The report also found that many banks lacks sufficient response plans if they find themselves on the wrong side of a cyber attack. “There are […]
