Police Cuff Comelec Hack Suspect

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Philippine police have arrested one of three individuals suspected of hacking the website of the national election commission (Comelec) at the end of March and exposing the details of over 50 million voters. The country’s National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) announced the arrest last week, having worked with Comelec and other government agencies on the case, according to the Manila Bulletin. They’re currently analyzing the computer of the 23-year-old IT graduate, who apparently hails from Sampaloc, Manila. The man has been named as Paul Biteng, a security researcher listed in Facebook’s Security Hall of Fame and Microsoft’s Security Researcher Acknowledgments page, according to the paper. He is said to have taken part in the arrest in order to highlight vulnerabilities in the Comelec site, however, Biteng may now face prosecution under the Cybercrime Prevention Law. The site compromise led to the personal details of up to 55 million Filipinos – all the registered voters in the country – being exposed online. Security firm Trend Micro claimed at the time that these details included 1.3 million records of overseas Filipino voters, which featured passport numbers and expiry dates. Also publicly available online were hundreds of thousands of email addresses, plus names, […]

Six men who were arrested during the unrest in Baltimore last year have filed a police brutality lawsuit.

The plaintiffs say the Baltimore Police Department violated their constitutional rights during the protests.

The men also claim that police actions led to them suffering abrasions, contusions, nerve damage, swelling and other injuries.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the police department and Attorney General Brian Frosh are not commenting on the pending litigation.

Police websites Hacked Seaham man charged on suspicion

lawcrime

A man is due to appear before magistrates charged with hacking into a number of corporate websites, including a police force’s.

This morning officers from the cyber crime unit based in North East Regional Special Operations Unit (NERSOU) charged 22-year-old Paul Dixon, from The Avenue, Deneside, Seaham, with offences under the Computer Misuse Act.

He has been charged with five offences relating to attacks against various websites, including Durham Constabulary, Police Scotland and British Airways in mid-late October 2014.

Detective Sergeant Rachel Lewis, from the cyber crime unit at Durham Constabulary, said “The impact of the attacks disrupted the level of services provided to the public for significant periods of time and also caused a loss of revenue to the businesses affected.”

Dixon has been bailed to attend South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, May 17.

Police step up use of technology to solve gun crimes

gun-technology_1460516048330_1567886_ver1.0

Viewers of TV crime shows are familiar with plots that involve police investigators solving gun crimes with high-tech ballistics tests.

But while these tests are a popular with Hollywood script writers, the real life technology has not always been a favorite of police departments in the Puget Sound region.

A 2013 KING 5 Investigation revealed that many Washington State police departments submitted only a small percentage of the guns seized in their work for ballistics tests.

Three years later, it’s a very different story, thanks to a renewed push from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab and Seattle Police.

“My goal was to make it better than what it had been in the past. It had been underutilized before in the past by all law enforcement from federal, state and local levels,” said Special Agent Douglas Dawson, who heads the ATF office in Seattle.

For the two and half years that he’s been in charge, Dawson has ramped up use of the Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS). He said his office has charted a six fold increase in the past few years in the number of ballistics “hits” that IBIS has detected in Seattle-area gun cases.

IBIS stores and analyzes images of shell casings – the brass casing that is left behind when a bullet is fired from a gun. Each gun makes unique tool marks on the casing. IBIS can find matches among millions of shell casings from crime guns across the country – and link together cases where there was no known connection.

When cases are linked, investigators gain a wealth of new information that can lead to a break.

Dawson says there used to be 25 or 30 IBIS hits a year in Seattle.

“Last year we were up to about 180 – I think 179 was the official record,” said Dawson.

Dawson said one reason police departments don’t use IBIS is because it can often be time consuming for them to test fire all the guns they seize, and then hand deliver the shell casings to the crime lab.

Dawson urges departments to test all guns and casings they come across, because investigators never know when one was used in another crime. The ATF now offers its personnel to help with firearms testing.

The State Patrol crime lab in Seattle addressed another complaint that detectives have had about IBIS. Lab techs are trying to give detectives speedier results so that they get useful information from ballistics tests in days – not weeks or months.

“Ideally, within 72 hours or less is when we have that prime window,” said IBIS technician Jennifer Tardiff of WSP’s Seattle crime lab.

By streamlining the process and producing results, Dawson hopes that police agencies submit more shell casings – and solve more cases big and small.

Last year, Byron Vierling spied a handgun stashed in the seat in the back of the Metro bus he was riding.

“The gun was pointed towards me with the stock up in the air,” Vierling told KING 5. “I was very nervous,” he said.

Vierling called Seattle police to report the firearm.

IBIS determined that shell cases retrieved when the gun was test-fired matched shell casings from a “shots fired” call in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood.

Police had questioned a woman who boarded the bus two days before Vierling rode it. The woman was seen walking away from a man who had fired shots in the air.

However, when police questioned her on the bus they could not find and gun – or any evidence that she was connected to the shots fired call.

When IBIS linked the two cases, police reviewed Metro bus video that appeared to show the woman reaching down behind a seat to hide something.

“It looks like she’s putting the gun right where I found it,” Vierling said when KING 5 showed him the video.

When confronted with the video a month after Vierling found the gun, the woman confessed to police that she’s stashed it on the bus to help out the friend who fired it.

After the woman’s confession, that friend — Sean Summers, a felon who was not allowed to have a gun — pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm.

Dawson credited Seattle police officers who submitted the shell casings from the shots fired call and the casings from the gun on the bus.

“Had that gun been taken into custody two years ago it may have sat in an evidence vault on a shelf and never been tested,” said Dawson.

Of course, IBIS can solve the most serious crimes as well.

When one-year-old Malajha Grant was killed in a drive by shooting in Kent last year, police and the ATF submitted shell casings they found at the scene to the WSP crime lab in Seattle.

In 24 hours, IBIS spit out a lead that led to the arrest of a suspect.

The shell casings matched those found at a shooting 24 hours earlier in Seattle that was recorded on video.

“We were able to obtain a video that had two people in it that had weapons and at least one of those weapons was used in our murder less than 24 hours later,” said Kent Police Chief Ken Thomas.

Cyber-crime to be fought by Police and University

The 18 month project will be closely watched by The Home Office, who are keen to use the lessons learnt here to fight cyber-crime nationally. The West Yorkshire Police (WYP) and Leeds Beckett University are to team up to fight cyber-crime. As part of a £640,000 project, members of the Leeds Beckett University’s Cyber-crime and Security Innovation Centre, also known as the CSI Centre, will be training police to better tackle cyber-crime and cyber-enabled crime. The 18-month project will allow security researchers at the university to closely look at the operations of law enforcement and law enforcement to look at the gaps in cyber-crime investigations. Dr Z Cliffe Schreuders, senior lecturer in Computer Security at Leeds Beckett university told press that: “Cyber-enabled crime is a rapidly emerging and ever-evolving threat. As technology changes and improves, so do the criminals – which is why the work we’re doing with WYP is ambitious and challenging.” Schreuders added: “Our role is to work with West Yorkshire Police, helping to identify areas where they are strong and where they can be improved. We have collaborated with all levels of WYP in the last six months to identify potential areas for improvement and the challenge […]
