A third of pirated movie sites spread malicious software, report says

You might want to think twice before you try to watch a pirated copy of of the new Star Wars movie online. Aside from the fact that the film will probably be way better on a big screen with surround sound, a new report finds that many websites set up to distribute pirated movies and TV shows spread malicious malware. Cybersecurity firm RiskIQ probed a sample of 800 piracy websites and found that one in three contain malware that can expose a user to identity theft, financial loss, and hackers taking control of their computer. Internet users who visited piracy sites were 28 times more likely to get malware from so-called torrent sites than from licensed or mainstream media websites. Almost half the time, the malware was delivered by “drive-by downloads,” meaning the malicious software was triggered just by visiting a site — users did not have to click again or actually download a video to get infected. Once hackers gain access into a computer, they can steal bank and credit card data or personal information, which can be sold in an underground market. Another tactic some hackers use is to lock a person out of their computer and demand […]

A GAMERGATE MOVIE IS COMING. HERE’S THE QUESTION ON EVERYONE’S LIPS

A GAMERGATE MOVIE IS COMING. HERE’S THE QUESTION ON EVERYONE’S LIPS

According to this report, rights to the movie have been won by Amy Pascal, a former Sony Pictures executive who “likened movie stars on TV to ‘the new black baby.’” Funny, if injudicious for the head of a major studio. Pascal is perhaps best known for a series of what progressives called “racist” emails that eventually lead to her downfall at Sony, after unknown parties hacked Sony’s servers and suggested it was due to Seth Rogen and James Franco’s North Korean satire The Interview, though that’s now disputed. Pascal is also the woman behind the upcoming all-female Ghostbusters reboot. It remains unclear if the inevitable bankruptcy caused by the movie will affect the production of Quinn’s biopic. Whether it will even get out of development, or into anywhere other than the bargain DVD bin in your local Walmart, is an open question. Like Quinn’s ill-fated Rebel Game Jam, it’s likely to just be vaporware. Still, it’s impressive that Pascal won the bid. I hear five other guys five other studios were also furiously, passionately, vigorously bidding for the biopic. The report says that “several actresses” are interested in playing Zoe Quinn, with Scarlett Johansson said to be “the keenest,” although that could just mean she laughed the least when […]

Dope’s Rick Famuyiwa is making a hacker movie

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

As reported by Deadline, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa will be writing, producing, and directing a movie about hackers. With the world still hyped on Mr. Robot from over the summer and the Sony hack a distant memory, this seems like a pretty good time for a studio to jump on this big “hacking” craze that computer geeks have been talking about for the last 30 or so years. Famuyiwa’s film reportedly revolves around a kid from the projects of New York who “finds a reprieve from his his tumultuous life in the world of the dark web.” Thanks to his hacking skils (or “skillz,” in the hacker parlance), he “makes a name for himself among his peers and the federal authorities.” That last bit is a reference to the fact that this isn’t just any hacker kid, as this hacker kid is actually “the founder of a notorious hacker group.” As we said before, Mr. Robot was pretty popular this summer. Plus, there are only so many stories that can be told about hackers, and The Matrix and War Gameshave already been done.

Woman pleads guilty in ID theft; seniors promised movie roles

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

An Antelope Valley woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in a mail fraud scheme that used personal data stolen from elderly victims in an effort to defraud the state’s unemployment insurance program out of nearly $300,000. Dena Buttram of Littlerock, 32 — who also uses the last name Peterman — pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud pursuant to a plea agreement filed Tuesday in Los Angeles federal court, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Over the course of two years, Buttram and co-conspirators stole Social Security numbers and other personal identifying information that was used to defraud the California Employment Development Department, which administers the state unemployment insurance program, prosecutors said. Buttram targeted senior citizens as part of the scam, obtaining the data from elderly victims in California and elsewhere by telling them that they had an opportunity to be cast in remakes of popular movies, court documents show. To further the scheme, Buttram and others created bogus companies supposedly related to the movie industry with names such as Nine Maids Movie Production, Western Film Animation and High Desert Productions. Using the stolen personal information, a co-conspirator filed fictitious wage reports with the EDD and then fraudulently sought […]

‘Hackers’ Director: Rollerblading Didn’t Hold Up, But the Rest of the Movie Does

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

On September 15, 1995, Hackers was released in the theaters to a relative thud, recovering less than half its production budget at the box office. But the tale of a group of high school hackers—with cool-sounding hacker handles like “Zero Cool” and “Acid Burn”—stumbling upon a grand corporate conspiracy found a second life on home video, becoming a cult classic two decades later. Directed by Iain Softley—who’d previously made the Beatles dramatization Backbeat, and subsequently directed K-PAX and The Skeleton Key—the film is all sorts of dated. There’s heartthrob Jonny Lee Miller doing his best to put on a New Yorker accent, there’s some unknown punk named Angelina, there’s the nebulously famous Fisher Stevens. Matthew Lillard’s in it, and so is Marc Anthony. Everyone rollerblades or skateboards. It’s probably the most 90s movie of all time. But despite its residence in an era of phone booths (that sometimes twirl) and modems that go “reeeeee-unnnhhhhhh!” it’s also prescient portrayal of the approaching promises and dangers of this internet thing. I woke up at the crack of dawn to chat with Softley about the 20th anniversary of the movie. MOTHERBOARD: How long has it been since you watched Hackers? Iain Softley: I […]
