GPS satellite networks are easy targets for hackers

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A pivotal network of GPS satellites doesn’t properly guard its communication, making devices back on Earth susceptible to hacking, according to new research. Lots of companies — everything ranging from overseas shipping containers to oil drilling rigs — use location data beamed from GPS trackers to ensure that equipment never goes off course. But Colby Moore, a researcher with cybersecurity firm Synack, has found that it’s easy to crack Globalstar’s GPS satellite network. This is a company that bills itself as “the world’s most modern satellite network.” GPS trackers beam data to satellites, which send them back to base stations on Earth. Using cheap hardware and small planes, Colby successfully intercepted and decoded data — none of which was encrypted. He also found that there are no safeguards to check that data is shared only between real trackers and base stations. With that access, Moore was able to decode the transmissions and create fake GPS data. The result? High-tech thieves could steal a freight truck full of precious cargo without setting off alarms. Rescuers responding to a sinking cruise ship could be redirected far away from the actual wreckage. Aviation is especially at risk. Lots of planes transmit their location […]

Hackers developed a new tool that can flood networks with spam phone calls

Hackers are selling a new tool that lets anyone flood a phone network with spam phone calls. The Register reports that Eastern-European hackers have developed a new piece of kit that is being sold online. The TNT Instant Up can be used to flood phone numbers with calls, stopping the phone from being used until the device is turned off. You can buy the device online, if you’re so inclined. The TNT Instant Up works by flooding a phone number with calls, crippling any phone system. It uses several connected modems and SIM cards to repeatedly dial numbers. IntelCrawler reports that hackers are selling the device for prices between $560 and $1,200. You might think that the Instant Up device is perfect for pranks, but it actually has a far more sinister use. Hackers can use TDoS (telephone denial of service) tools to take down crucial systems. IntelCrawler says that the FBI has identified TDoS attacks taking place last summer, and they were aimed at the healthcare sector. It also says that hackers have blocked a 911 emergency service in the US through the use of a similar device. source: http://www.businessinsider.com/tnt-instant-up-phone-hacking-tool-2015-2

Israel Military to set up own Cloud Networks by end-2014

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is developing its own military cloud computing networks, which will be up and running by the end of the year, according to Their senior Army sources.

 http://www.israel-catalog.com/sites/default/files/products/images/israel-flag-big.jpg

The networks, being developed by the C4i Corps, will allow commanders in any particular combat arena to log in to the network and receive real-time intelligence on the location of enemy targets, as well as streaming information on the position of friendly forces, which can be instructed to assist in strikes. C4i signifies command, control, communications, computers, and (military) intelligence.

“This is our operational Internet. We are setting up the infrastructure to back up the information,” one source said.

A second source said the military computing cloud was one of a number of teleprocessing upgrades under way, designed to increase the effectiveness of the IDF’s firepower and shorten the sensor-to-shooter cycle.

The IDF General Staff has recently approved a program to convert the military into a network- centered fighting organization by 2025, and the changes going on now are part of this vision, he said.
This is the technology that enables decisions to be taken,” the source said.
