“We will not stop until the police state becomes a free state and Palestine is free.”

On a website dedicated to the event, – AnonGhost – posted a video which said that the attack will target every possible Israeli website and take them down, in order to show solidarity with Palestine.

U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman in a statement said that both the men had been involved in a campaign to “cash out” bank accounts and pre-paid debit cards opened in the names of others.

Hackers use security camera DVRs for bitcoin Mining

Security researchers at the SANS Institute’s Internet Storm Center has reported that hackers are using DVRs, a device which receive and process images from security camera, as Bitcoin mining rigs. 

The malware is compiled for ARM CPUs, so it’s a specialist nasty. They hackers have created a custom code which can be injected into DVRs. For this hackers will have to brute force or social engineer the passwords. 

In case of security cameras the password is usually easy can be brute forced with in short period. After getting administerative privileges, hackers will install a simple yet nasty malware on the host machine. 

This malware scans for vulnerable Synology Disk Stations as well as attempting tomine BitCoins. “The malware is an ARM binary, indicating that it is targeting devices, not your typical x86 Linux server,” explains SANS Institute researcher Johannes Ullrich in a write-up . 

The malicious code is only scanning for vulnerable Synology Disk Stations and not doing anything on these insecure networks attached storage devices, at least for now.

WinRAR File Extension Spoofing helps Hackers to Hide Malwares

WinRAR , a tool which is mostly used by 90% of the people around the world to compress files or to extract ZIP files which are already compressed. WinRAR is even the most famous and much popular than other tools which compress or extract ZIP files.

Imagine that you opened a RAR file which had some images or some mp3 music files but when you played or opened any single of them , it installed a malware on your system. Wouldn’t that be dangerous ? Yes ! obviously it will be ! This file extension spoofing vulnerability was discovered by a Israeli security researcher Danor Cohen (An7i)

The WinRAR File Extension Spoofing was done by an Israeli security researcher , he used a hex editor in which he noted that WinRAR adds two things in an archive file , it adds first name and second name of file. First name of the file contains the name of the original file and the second name contains the file name with extension which shows in WinRAR GUI window. Danor Cohen just edited the second name to “FAX.png” as the original malware name and extension was “FAX.exe“.

This helped him to get victims trapped easily as when they open any format file which is shown in WinRAR GUI window , it shows some other file extension but it runs a malware with .EXE extension and the attacker successfully gets access to the victims computer.

Hackers Can Unlock Tesla Cars by Stealing Owners’ Passwords 

Corporate security consultant and Tesla owner Nitesh Dhanjani said that hackers can potentially unlock Tesla cars by stealing owner’s password. Tesla cars are password protected. When a customer buys the car he will be required to obtain a password from Tesla’s official website.
 The password that’s set by Tesla owners when they create an account is six characters long, and it must contain at least one number and one letter. This makes the password easy to obtain with brute-force attacks. Since it’s only 6 characters long, it’s not difficult to crack. 
Furthermore, there are no account lockout policies for incorrect login attempts. Nitesh Dhanjani says hackers can also employ certain other methods to obtain the password which may include phishing and social engineering. Nitesh said the if hackers get access to password they can lock and unlock the car can steal valuables placed inside. 
Hacker can also flash lights and can remotely locate the cars. Nitesh has submitted the findings to the company. Tesla assured that it will consider all possible risk and take the necessary measures accordingly.

Watch out Journalists! Some journalists are after you.
 C-net article by Don Reisinger , ” Watch out, journalists: Hackers are after you claims many of the journalist-turned hackers are spying on other journalists to steal reports and classified information of their media outlet. 
Report is followed Google research which claimed that hackers are increasing targeting journalist to steal sensitive information. However its not just hackers who are behind journalists, but some Journalists are also behind other journalists. 
The revelation was made at the Black Hat Conference convenrd at Singapore in which three French journalists were expelled after they were accused of spy on the journalists’ email accounts. All of these three French journalists work for the French publication Global Security Magazine. 
The French journalists captured what they claimed were usernames and passwords of reporters from at least two media outlets — eWeek and CNET News, according to that March 28, 2014 article, ” Watch out, journalists: Hackers are after you .”
 The eWeek reporter told organizers his login credentials looked like they were legitimate, while the CNET information appeared to be bogus, the C- Net article reported. Black Hat attendees are warned that the conference’s public wireless network is being monitored by hackers. This is most shocking to have surfaced so far about online security.
 For the first time WhoGotHacked has come to learn that its not just hackers who target journalists, but Journalists are also targeting other journalists and their personal information. The fact will greatly undermine the credibility of journalism and media franchise around the world.
