If you have a BCA, HSBC, Bank Danamon, Citibank, OCBC NISP, Panin, BII, Bank Standard Chartered or CIMB Niaga bank account, you’d best check your account activity for anything unusual. The Jakarta Police recently announced they had busted a criminal enterprise in which scammers bought data from a hacker who had acquired ATM card information and PIN numbers for customers of the nine above banks. The scammers then used that data to create fake but usable ATM cards. The police are still looking for the hacker or hackers that got the data, although authorities suspect the computer criminals were operating outside of Indonesia. The customer data was sold through several shady websites includingwww.kanxxxx.com, www.valxxxxxx.sul and www.tonyxxxxxxx.cc. However police were able to arrest some of the scammers using the stolen data in Jakarta. Authorities said one of the suspects arrested in the case, a 32-year-old identified as W, was caught despite the precautions he took while using the fake ATM cards. “W withdrew money from several ATMS while using a wig and false mustache to obscure his identity,” said Police Assistant Commissioner Didik Sugiarto on Sunday, as quoted by Tempo. In addition to the disguise, W also used forged documents to […]

Police want white hat hackers to catch Ashley Madison criminals

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Toronto police have appealed to the ‘white hat’ hacker community for help in tracking down Impact Team, the perpetrators of the Ashley Madison data breach, after revealing two people may have taken their own lives due to the leaks. “Team Impact,” Superintendent Bryce Evans said at a press conference, directly addressing the criminals behind the hack, “I want to make it very clear to you — your actions are illegal and will not be tolerated.” Evans said the suicide reports were unconfirmed as yet, and it is unknown if it was members of the site or other persons who had been killed. But Toronto Police stressed the “enormous social and economic fallout” caused by the hackers, who published the usernames, real names, street addresses and partial credit card numbers of some 36 million dating site users. Evans thanked the open source tech community for its help so far, and told journalists that Avid Life Media — owners of Ashley Madison and sister dating site Established Men — is offering a reward of $500,000 to anyone providing information that leads to the identification, arrest or prosecution of the person or people behind the hack. “You know the Impact Team has crossed […]

China Holds More Than 15,000 For Alleged Cyber Crime: Police

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Chinese police have arrested more than 15,000 people to date for cyber crimes,  including hacking and fraud, while activists said the crackdown is also linked to the ruling Chinese Communist Party’s ongoing war on online public opinion. “More than 15,000 criminal suspects were detained in investigations of more than 7,400 Internet crimes by police departments and agencies,” the country’s ministry of public security said in a statement on its website. Those detained were suspected of “harming national security online” or “infringing the legitimate rights and interests of the general public,” it said. It listed hacking attacks, cyber fraud and the promotion of online gambling among the crimes under investigation. In a case in the eastern province of Jiangsu, seven people were arrested after hackers took control of a company website, filling the pages with online gambling content, the ministry said. The suspects were later found to have hacked into more than 2,000 websites. But China is also deleting content that the government deems offensive and “harmful,” including pornography and gambling, but also posts by citizens about current events that are considered “rumor-mongering” because they offer an alternative view of events. Pan Lu, deputy director of the nascent China Human Rights […]

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

THE government will form a team of experts to go after cyber criminals. Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, in her speech Wednesday during launching and signing of the Implementing Rules and Regulation of the Cyber Crime Prevention Act of 2012, said the government has a lot of catching up to do against cybercrime offenders who had about three decades of head start. “It’s about time that we, in the government, take that step to finally tackle them head on,” de Lima said. “It is our mandate to ensure that while crimes ought not to go unpunished, that wherever cybercriminals may be found, the full force of the law must apply,” she said. The team, de Lima said, will be anti-cybercrime professionals “equipped with the requisite expertise, backed up by adequate resources and operating under an ethical framework to ensure that we can deliver justice.” Last year, the PNP recorded 614 cybercrime-related cases, 22 percent of them were scam-related, 16 percent involved cyber libel, 11 percent were on voyeurism, and 9 percent involved identity theft. De Lima said the capacity building also includes the upgrading of the facilities and equipment of the respective anti-cybercrime unit of the National Bureau of Investigation […]
