Harvard University issues cyber alert

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Harvard University has discovered an intrusion on the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and Central Administration information technology networks which could have exposed user’s login credentials to cyber criminals. The breach was discovered on June 19th, but Harvard University decided not to announce the intrusion until they were confident that notification would not jeopardize their efforts to secure systems and limit damage. In a Q&A on the universities website it is advising people potentially impacted to change passwords. It states: “At this time, we have no indication that research data or personal data managed by Harvard systems (e.g. social security numbers) have been exposed. There is no indication that PIN credentials, used to access University systems and web resources, have been exposed. “It is possible that Harvard login credentials (computer and email passwords, including Office 365) stored on the compromised FAS and Central Administration networks have been exposed. In order to further secure your data, the University is requiring some members of our community to change their Harvard passwords.” Source: Business Reporter

Plane safe? Hacker case points to deeper cyber issues

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

BY JEREMY WAGSTAFF, Reuters Security researcher Chris Roberts made headlines last month when he was hauled off a plane in New York by the FBI and accused of hacking into flight controls via his underseat entertainment unit. Other security researchers say Roberts – who was quoted by the FBI as saying he once caused “a sideways movement of the plane during a flight” – has helped draw attention to a wider issue: that the aviation industry has not kept pace with the threat hackers pose to increasingly computer-connected airplanes. Through his lawyer, Roberts said his only interest had been to “improve aircraft security.” “This is going to drive change. It will force the hand of organizations (in the aviation industry),” says Jonathan Butts, a former US Air Force researcher who now runs a company working on IT security issues in aviation and other industries. As the aviation industry adopts communication protocols similar to those used on the Internet to connect cockpits, cabins and ground controls, it leaves itself open to the vulnerabilities bedevilling other industries – from finance to oil and gas to medicine. “There’s this huge issue staring us in the face,” says Brad Haines, a friend of Roberts […]

Costly shift to new credit cards won’t fix security issues

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

New technology about to be deployed by credit card companies will require U.S. consumers to carry a new kind of card and retailers across the nation to upgrade payment terminals. But despite a price tag of $8.65 billion, the shift will address only a narrow range of security issues. Credit card companies have set an October deadline for the switch to chip-enabled cards, which come with embedded computer chips that make them far more difficult to clone. Counterfeit cards, however, account for only about 37 percent of credit card fraud, and the new technology will be nearly as vulnerable to other kinds of hacking and cyber attacks as current swipe-card systems, security experts say. Moreover, U.S. banks and card companies will not issue personal identification numbers (PINs) with the new credit cards, an additional security measure that would render stolen or lost cards virtually useless when making in-person purchases at a retail outlet. Instead, they will stick with the present system of requiring signatures. Anre Williams, president of global merchants services at American Express, cited cost and complexity as reasons for not issuing PIN numbers, which would require a much larger investment by card issuers. “It is the PIN management […]
