Cell phone security on Apple and Google -operated devices help criminals duck justice

The answers to the shooting death of a Louisiana woman could be locked in her iPhone 5, but without a password not even Apple can access the data. It’s an unsolved murder from April that law enforcement officials say is symbolic of a growing number of cases stalled by amped-up security features on Apple and Google-operated devices. Brittney Mills, 29, was 8 months pregnant when she opened the door to someone who wanted to borrow her car in Baton Rouge on April 24. She refused and was shot several times. Her baby, Brenton Mills, died a week later. Mills had the iOS-8 operating software on her phone, but the encryption system — intended to protect users’ privacy — has made owners’ text messages, phone calls and contact lists inaccessible since September 2014. In the Louisiana case, cell phone data, including a personal diary, was not backed up on iCloud. A subpoena seeking the data resulted in a missive from Apple saying that because the phone is “running iOS version 8 or a later version” the “extraction cannot be completed.” About 1,300 miles northeast of Baton Rouge, frustrated prosecutors in New Orleans have an ally in Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance […]

Prison phone company recorded private lawyer-inmate calls, hack reveals Bills

Concerns about civil liberty violations are spreading after an unidentified hacker recently breached Securus Technologies and released the audio of an estimated 70 million phone conversations of USA prisoners -including communications between attorneys and their clients. “It is very important to note that we have found absolutely no evidence of attorney-client calls that were recorded without the knowledge and consent of those parties”, the firm said. Each call record included a link to a downloadable recording of the call. However, it is common practice to monitor prisoner phone calls for the objective of protecting individuals working in the prisons as well as those on the outside. Securus had been previously breached in 2014, the publication additionally revealed, “when someone hacked three calls made by an inmate named Aaron Hernandez, presumably the former player for the New England Patriots, who was awaiting trial for [allegedly] killing a friend”. It’s not the first indication that Securus may have been recording calls with attorneys. In a statement to the press, Securus Technologies officials say the company found no evidence of a hack, claiming its more likely someone with authorized access leaked the records. The cache of phone records was leaked via SecureDrop by […]

70M Private Phone Calls Leaked in Prison Hack

70M Private Phone Calls Leaked in Prison Hack

An anonymous hacker has accessed 70 million phone calls placed by inmates in at least 37 states by breaching Securus Technologies, a prominent telecommunications provider for correctional institutions. Of these, at least 14,000 were confidential conversations between inmates and their attorneys. The Intercept, an investigative news site, first reported the attack after receiving insider information from the hacker. The site states the telecommunications hack spans a nearly two-and-a-half year period, beginning in December 2011 and ending in the spring of 2014. Securus records all inmate phone calls to uphold security standards within these facilities; however, they are not allowed to record and store conversations between inmates and their attorneys in many states. The hacker claims they released these records to expose the recordings of attorney-client communications, an act that potentially impedes an inmate’s right to effective assistance of counsel. This hack comes approximately a year after a group of Texas lawyers sued Securus for illegally recording privileged conversations. Securus’ protocol is for attorneys to register their phone numbers for exemption; however, unregistered numbers, despite the nature of the conversation, will still be recorded. Securus is currently cooperating with law enforcement to investigate the incident. In a company statement, Securus suggests […]

Prison phone company recorded private lawyer-inmate calls, hack reveals NYSE Post

Calling it “the most massive breach of the attorney-client privilege in modern US history”, the American Civil Liberties Union told The Intercept that while prisoners lose many of their constitutional rights, the right to speak privately with an attorney — related to the Sixth Amendment — must be protected. Today, the Intercept published a report on Securus Technologies-a jail telephone service provider that is heretofore best known for gouging the shit out of detainees and their families-based on a cache of metadata and recordings of tens of millions of calls provided to the outlet by an anonymous hacker. According to The Intercept, the hacker was concerned that inmates’ constitutional rights had been violated and submitted the phone records to the online news organization. The breach highlights two major issues, the first being that Securus’ systems aren’t as well protected as they claim; the second is that the current system for preventing attorneys’ calls from being recorded isn’t watertight. (The Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s offender phone system is subcontracted to Securus, according to a TDCJ spokesman). “Although this investigation is ongoing, we have seen no evidence that records were shared as a result of a technology breach or hack into […]

You Can Now Test Firefox OS On Android Without Hacking Your Phone

You Can Now Test Firefox OS On Android Without Hacking Your Phone

Let’s say you want to give Firefox OS — the mobile operating system made by the same people who make the browser — a try. Until now, that’s meant one of two things: buying one of a small handful of early Firefox OS devices or hacking your existing Android device to pieces to try to get it running. That’s starting to change today. Mozilla is releasing a “preview” build that runs within Android to give you a taste without any real commitment required. The catch? They are shoehorning an OS on top of another OS, so the two might interact strangely sometimes — particularly at this early stage. For example, Mozilla says Android’s back button can cause some weird bugs at times. But fret not: if it’s too buggy or you’re just not feelin’ it, just remove Firefox OS as you would any other launcher, and you’re back to square one. Ready to check it out? Head over to this Mozilla blog post and click the “visit Firefox OS 2.5 Developer Preview” link to grab the APK.

U.S. court will not halt NSA phone spy program before ban

U.S. court will not halt NSA phone spy program before ban

A U.S. appeals court on Thursday refused to immediately halt the government’s bulk collection of millions of Americans’ phone records during a “transition” period to a new federal scheme that bans the controversial anti-terrorism surveillance. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said it would not disturb Congress’ decision to provide a 180-day period for an “orderly transition” to a new, targeted surveillance system from the sweeping National Security Agency program that the court found illegal on May 7. “An abrupt end to the program would be contrary to the public interest in effective surveillance of terrorist threats, and Congress thus provided a 180-day transition period,” Circuit Judge Gerard Lynch wrote for a three-judge panel. “Under the circumstances, we will defer to that reasonable decision.” The NSA program collected “metadata” such as phone numbers dialed and call durations, but not call contents. It was first disclosed in 2013 by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Thursday’s decision rejected a request by the American Civil Liberties Union for a preliminary injunction to stop the program until the narrower scheme begins on Nov. 29. Alex Abdo, an ACLU lawyer, said that while the group disagreed with the latest decision, “all […]

TalkTalk reveals 1.2million customer email and phone numbers along with 21,000 bank details were stolen in hack -- as police arrest another teenager over cyber attack

The data hacked in the TalkTalk cyber attack ‘is significantly less than suspected’ with fewer than 21,000 bank details accessed, the company has said. TalkTalk today revealed that 1.2 million customer email addresses, names and phone numbers were accessed, along with around 28,000 obscured credit and debit card details, and fewer than 15,000 customer dates of birth. ‘Even though the scale of the attack is significantly smaller than initially suspected, we continue to advise customers to be vigilant, and to take all precautions possible to protect themselves from scam phone calls and emails,’ a spokesman said. Earlier, the Metropolitan Police revealed that a second boy has been arrested in connection with the alleged attack. The 16-year-old, from Feltham in west London, was held on suspicion of computer misuse after a search of his home yesterday. The teenager has been bailed to a date yet to be confirmed. A 15-year-old boy from County Antrim in Northern Ireland was arrested on Monday in connection with the alleged data theft. He was bailed until a date in November. The investigation is being carried out by the Met’s cyber crime unit, the PSNI’s cyber crime centre and the National Crime Agency. The latest breach […]

‘Babyface hacker who paralysed a phone giant’: Son of a single mother, TalkTalk suspect, 15, is violent video game addict who rarely leaves his bedroom

The boy of 15 arrested over the TalkTalk cyber-attack is a baby-faced loner and gaming fanatic nicknamed ‘Vicious’ who rarely leaves his bedroom. The reclusive youngster is suspected of being behind the huge security breach that has put the banking details of four million households at risk. Scores of TalkTalk customers have been targeted by fraudsters exploiting the hacked data and the firm’s share price plunged. The boy was arrested in the pebble-dashed property he shares with his single mother on a rundown estate in Northern Ireland. His online blog reveals he is obsessed with violent video games such as Grand Theft Auto. It emerged today that he himself was targeted by hackers who published his personal details on a now-deleted website for young hackers known as ‘skids’ or ‘script-kiddies’, according to The Times. The hackers abused his closest family members and called the ‘fat b****es along with pictures of him with them. Neighbours say he was being taught at home after repeated suspensions saw him kicked out of school. ‘He’s always inside, in there 24/7 and up all night in his bedroom,’ said one. A close family friend said: ‘He never wanted to go to school. He never leaves […]
