Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Anonymous hates Kanye West now? It appears that is what the latest news from the hacker group says. According to a March 12 report from Popcrush, a new video posted to the Anonymous Twitter account seems to be targeting Kanye West. When did the hate for West begin? It looks like when he tried to intercept Beck as he accepted the best album award at the Grammys. West has been known to voice his opinions and it appears that the hacker group is going to teach him a lesson. Fans are wondering what Kim Kardashian thinks about her husband being targeted. Kanye West is hated by a lot of people across the globe. Because he often doesn’t think before he speaks, he has made a lot of enemies. Anonymous hating West could lead to a lot of issues not only for him, but also for the Kardashian family. The hacker group wouldn’t think twice before releasing financial information, phone numbers, or other sensitive documents. Fans are waiting for comments about this from the rapper or Kim Kardashian, but nothing has been said yet. There isn’t a long time in between the times Kaney West puts his foot in his mouth. […]

Expert hacker: Hillary doesn’t know who read her personal email

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

At a press conference on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton tried to assure the public that there were “no security breaches” on the private server she used to send and receive emails during her time as secretary of state. But cyber experts are saying that there is no way she could know whether her account was ever compromised by hackers, who constantly attempt to detect security holes in email servers and stealthily exploit them. “There have been times when I’ve hacked into a customer’s server, collected data, and gotten out, and the customer never had any indication that their system had been compromised,” ethical hacker David Chronister of Parameter Security told Business Insider. “There’s this misconception that if someone is attacked they’ll know right away, but unless the hacker really screws up, the target won’t know until it’s too late.” The 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner also said that the personal server “was on property guarded by the Secret Service.” However, the former secretary of state did not provide details about the technical team that oversaw the personal system, which would involve several experts constantly looking for hackers if it was a government system. “You can never lock down a network enough to fully avoid […]

Hacker cites police brutality against Texas State student in attack on San Marcos city, police sites

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A hacker named “Bitcoin Baron” has claimed responsibility for cyberattacking the City of San Marcos and San Marcos Police Department websites in retaliation against a police officer who allegedly assaulted a Texas State University student in 2013. The websites were down as of Tuesday morning. “I am here to say you’re out of line and I’m going to attack your site nonstop until I know Palermo is going to prison for a long time for what he’s done to this lady Alexis Alpha,” the supposed hacker claims in a video posted to YouTube on Monday. Ex-San Marcos Cpl. John A. Palermo pleaded guilty in January to one charge of aggravated assault by a public servant for attacking Alpha, then a 22-year-old Texas State University student, after she walked near his police car while Palermo was conducting a traffic stop in May 2013. The encounter left her with broken teeth, bruises and a concussion. Palermo received 10 years of probation and deferred adjudication in lieu of a conviction for the second degree felony, according to Hays County court records. RELATED: Arrest of San Marcos cops called rarity At around 1:10 am. on May 29, 2013, Alpha walked by a traffic stop made by Palermo […]

Matt DeHart, the alleged Anonymous hacker, deported to U.S. after Canada refused to grant him asylum

Matt DeHart, a former American soldier who sought asylum in Canada claiming torture by U.S. agents probing Anonymous hackers and WikiLeaks, was taken from his Ontario prison cell Sunday morning and delivered to U.S. agents at the border. Mr. DeHart, 30, was allowed to make a quick phone call en route to his parents, who are living in Toronto facing their own removal order, said his father, Paul. “He was peaceful and in good health,” Paul DeHart said in an interview but the family remains deeply worried. “We are concerned about Matt’s safety as he transits,” he said. “We said a prayer together on the phone and gave him into God’s hands for protection.” His claim for refugee protection in Canada, on the basis of his torture claim, was rejected last month by the Immigration and Refugee Board. “I cannot imagine any life in a country which has already tortured me,” he told the National Post last month. “Am I now to be given into the hands of my torturers?” His is a bizarre, high-profile case, featured in a large investigation by the Post in May. It has since been featured in international media, including recent pieces by Germany’s Der […]

Cookie? Spam? Hacker? 11 everyday tech terms and their surprising origins

index

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Many of the words we use in the modern-day tech lexicon have surprising origins. OK, so the mouse is obvious, because it looks like a mouse. But we bet a lot of you didn’t know that the Bluetooth you use to pair your phone with a wireless headset was named after a 10th century Danish monarch who enjoyed blueberries? Read on for a little tech etymology lesson. Spam What is it? Unwanted and persistent emails, messages and communications from content providers or advertisers. Where did it come from? While this sounds like an obvious one – the Spam meat product is as undesirable to many as all those annoying messages and emails – that’s not actually the case. The first usage of Spam in a tech sense originates from a classic Monty Python sketch. During the skit, every item on a café menu features the tinned spiced ham, complete with Spam-obsessed Vikings singing its praises. Spam, wonderful Spam! What is it? An internet or social media user who deliberately posts inflammatory content in order to elicit a response. Where did it come from: Although it can often seem like an apt description, the origin of troll – in the modern […]

Hacker in a day: why you should learn how to hack a system

 Powered by Max Banner Ads  My name is third from the top on the dashboard. Next to it is a figure somewhere around 200,000 Hong Kong dollars — my bank balance — but I can’t quite keep track because the digits are repeatedly turning red and decreasing rapidly. My only way to combat the losses is to work faster than the eight other people on MacBooks at my table. In HK$15,000 increments, I’m stealing back the cash from their accounts and transferring it to mine. It’s a race to the top of the leaderboard, and every time my numbers turn crimson my face burns and my pulse races. I check the fitness tracker on my wrist. I’ve hit a cardio training heart rate of 139bpm. Hacking, it turns out, is quite a thrill. Monday saw the launch of a new course from London coding school Decoded. It’s called Hacker_in a day — the idea being that it will teach you some basic skills for cyber-attacking and thereby give you a sense of how easily your personal details could be accessed, your accounts infiltrated. After a quick lesson, we have each managed to experiment on an insecure online banking site until […]

The U.S. State Department and FBI on Tuesday announced a $3 million (roughly Rs. 18 crores) reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction of Russian national Evgeniy Bogachev, the highest bounty U.S. authorities have ever offered in a cyber case. The Federal Bureau of Investigation also issued a “Wanted” poster for Bogachev, who is charged in the United States with running a computer attack network called GameOver Zeus that allegedly stole more than $100 million (roughly Rs. 620 crores) from online bank accounts. Bogachev has been charged by federal authorities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with conspiracy, computer hacking, wire fraud, bank fraud and money laundering in connection with his alleged role as administrator of GameOver Zeus. He also faces federal bank fraud conspiracy charges in Omaha, Nebraska related to his alleged involvement in an earlier variant of Zeus malware known as “Jabber Zeus.” Bureau officials said they believed Bogachev was still in Russia. He could not immediately be reached for comment. Joseph Demarest, head of the FBI’s cyber crime division, said the agency is aware of 60 different cyber threat groups linked to nation-states. He did not identify which countries were believer to be behind these groups. Demarest said […]

Told U.S. is hacker, firm probes

Edward Snowden

 Powered by Max Banner Ads BERLIN — Gemalto, the largest maker of mobile-phone cards, said it’s investigating a report that U.S. and U.K. spies allegedly hacked into its computer network to steal the keys used to encrypt conversations, messages and data traffic. The United Kingdom’s Government Communications Headquarters and the U.S. National Security Agency started intercepting the encoders in 2010 as they were being shipped to phone companies, allowing them to monitor wireless communications and bypass the need to get permission for wiretapping, the online publication Intercept reported Thursday, citing documents from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Gemalto is a particularly valuable holder of the key,s as the French company produces 2 billion SIM cards every year, according to the report. “The publication indicates the target was not Gemalto per se — it was an attempt to try and cast the widest net possible to reach as many mobile phones as possible, with the aim to monitor mobile communications without mobile network operators and users consent,” Gemalto said in a news statement Friday, adding that it couldn’t immediately verify the findings in the report. In an emailed statement, the British communications agency said it couldn’t comment on intelligence matters, citing agency […]

A hacking ring has stolen up to $1 billion from banks around the world in what would be one of the biggest banking breaches known, a cybersecurity firm says in a report scheduled to be delivered Monday. The hackers have been active since at least the end of 2013 and infiltrated more than 100 banks in 30 countries, according to Russian security company Kaspersky Lab. Target cyberattack pits banks, retailers against each other Home Depot security hack: What to do if your cards are breached Cyberattack hits South Korean banks, TV networks After gaining access to banks’ computers through phishing schemes and other methods, they lurk for months to learn the banks’ systems, taking screen shots and even video of employees using their computers, the company says. Once the hackers become familiar with the banks’ operations, they use that knowledge to steal money without raising suspicions, programming ATMs to dispense money at specific times or setting up fake accounts and transferring money into them, according to Kaspersky. The report is set to be presented Monday at a security conference in Cancun, Mexico. It was first reported by The New York Times. The hackers seem to limit their theft to about $10 million […]
