DMU experts work with police to tackle cyber crime

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Cyber security experts at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) are working with the police to fight the increasing threat of cyber crime. Officers from across the East Midlands came to DMU to learn more about digital forensics and the latest research being carried out to profile those who commit cyber crime. DMU’s Psychology and Technology Research Group and the Cyber Security Centre work to understand both how victims view cyber crime as well as the psychology and techniques used by the cyber criminals. Cyber crime is a growing issue. In 2014, more than half of 2,075 Britons who took part in a UK Government survey had been victims of cyber crime. A separate poll showed that for the UK as a whole, more than £670m was lost in online fraud in the 12 months to August 2014. Recent cases in Leicestershire have included a man jailed for eight months for a cyber attack on a Leicester business. He cancelled online orders and hacked into the website in the attack which cost the company £41,000. “The cyber environment is used to commit and facilitate all types of crimes and even people committing more traditional crimes like burglary will still leave a […]

Police force pioneers new technology to catch criminals on the roads

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A NEW generation of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras are being rolled out across North Yorkshire as part of a £1m investment to catch travelling criminals. The first phase of new, moveable cameras, known as re-deployable cameras, has been introduced following an announcement of substantial investment in ANPR technology by the force last year. The cameras use the very latest technology to produce enhanced images and have the ability to capture distinguishing marks on a vehicle. North Yorkshire Police force is the first in the UK to use this model of ANPR camera. It works by reading the registration number of a vehicle and after checking the number against a database of information will issue an alarm if the vehicle is linked to criminality. They are used by the police to prevent and detect crime, as well as helping search for vulnerable missing people, wanted criminals and to target uninsured and untaxed vehicles. The cameras will be used by local police teams to tackle crime issues in their area. If an area is experiencing a spate of crime such as burglaries, the local policing team can request ANPR cameras in that area until the issue has been resolved. The […]

Police just arrested 4 men suspected of running scams tied to one of the biggest data breaches in history

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

US and Israeli law enforcement officials have arrested four men for suspected involvement in cyber blackmail and stock manipulation scams believed to be tied to the 2014 JPMorgan data breach. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported the arrests of Anthony Murgio, Yuri Lebedev, Gery Shalon and Ziv Orenstein and late on Tuesday. Bitcoin ‘ransomware’ Murgio and Lebedev are believed to have run an illegal Bitcoin money laundering exchange. (Bitcoins are a cryptographic currency that facilitate semi-anonymous transactions online.) The exchange was reportedly in violation of US federal anti-money laundering (AML) laws and made money by charging customers, many of which the FBI believe are engaged in criminal activity, to swap cash for Bitcoins. The FBI claims Murgio specifically exchanged cash for Bitcoins for victims of “ransomware” — a form of malware that locks victims out of their computer and demands they pay an unlock fee, often in Bitcoins. If true this would make him a co-conspirator in the illegal cyber blackmail operations. The FBI estimates the exchange earned the two at least $1.8m between October 2013 and January 2015. The specific charges against the two are: Conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business. Operating an unlicensed money […]

Anonymous Declares War Against Canadian Police And Launches Attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The notorious hacktivist group Anonymous has reportedly attacked national police websites in Canada, following vows of retaliation. The campaign was aimed at getting revenge for the unlawful shooting of a man in a “Guy Fawkes mask” in British Columbia on Thursday. The individual died as a result of his injuries. According to RT, the man was shot after having been mistaken for a suspect local police were searching for. In a video upload on YouTube, titled “Anonymous Operation AnonDown”, members affiliated with the hacktivist group declared war on Canadian police in British Columbia. The video, now gone viral, speaks of the group wanting to seek revenge for the shooting outside of the Fixx restaurant in Dawson Creek, in what Anonymous is calling “Operation Anondown.” The man was shot without probable cause or provocation, according to a statement made by Anonymous. Furthermore, the group is attacking “killer cops” who are shooting individuals without any cause, the Vancouver Sun reports. In the video, Anonymous makes the following statement about its new operation. “This RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] officer must be named, fired and charged for the murder of our brother. If we do not receive justice, rest assured there will be […]

Met Police chief admits cyber-crime difficulties

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan Howe admits that the UK police are still “skimming the surface” when it comes to tackling cyber-crime, a view that is shared by security experts. In an interview hosted by Sky News earlier this week, and with questions coming in from children’s newspaper First News, Hogan Howe detailed how the police have recruited hundreds of extra officers to fight online crime such as child abuse images, despite the organisation facing continued budget cuts. “I think we’re only skimming the surface,” he said of the Met Police’s efforts with cyber-crime so far. “A lot of it is about stealing money and scamming, sometimes it’s about stealing an idea from a business.” He said that the Met had created a squad of about 300 officers to deal with cyber-crime cases, adding that it would look to add another 200 in the next year. And citing the number of indecent images of children online, he admitted that police resources were continually being stretched. “When there are hundreds of thousands of horrible images of children online and we’re trying to track down all these people, it has proved a logistical problem. “It’s incredibly important but there are other important […]

Staffordshire Police hire digital experts to fight cyber crime

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

DIGITAL experts have been recruited to help police catch cyber criminals. They have joined a dedicated digital intelligence team (DIT) within Staffordshire Police, set up to carry out covert investigations into crime committed online. The new specialists could be helping to tackle offences such as fraud, drug dealing and child sexual exploitation. It comes after The Sentinel revealed in February that the force had established a crack cyber crime unit to catch perverts, fraudsters and other criminals using the internet to target their victims. The new DIT replaces this unit and signals a different approach in Staffordshire to addressing cyber crime. Chief Constable Jane Sawyers said: “These are all people with significant skills, backgrounds, training and levels of qualifications in digital investigation. “We have changed the way we think about investigating crime because society has changed the way that crime is committed.” More than 250 police staff have been trained in how to gather evidence and intelligence from the internet. It is hoped a further 250 will have the training by the end of next year. Assistant Chief Constable Jon Drake said: “The DIT have got really sophisticated technological techniques to help catch offenders who think the internet is a […]

‘Come at me Aussie police’: Hacker behind posts of hundreds of pictures of naked Queensland women taunts authorities and vows to keep uploading them

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A hacker responsible for sharing nude images of up to 700 Brisbane women on a New Zealand-based file-sharing service online, has taunted police after they ordered for the photos to be removed. The freely available images, which showed ‘girls from Brisbane and surrounding areas’ in various states of undress, first emerged on a forum on Friday before being removed on Monday morning and reappearing again later that night, Fairfax reports. A police request led to their removal for a second time on Tuesday, which was followed by the hacker vowing to upload the photos again, posting: ‘come at me Aussie police’. The uploader allegedly named the women in the photos and even shared some of their locations. However, officers are limited in their ability to investigate the cybercrime due to a lack of complaints. ‘The thing is, we don’t have a complaint and the focus has to be on harm minimisation to try and get these things down so people’s lives aren’t ruined,’ Detective Superintendent Brian Hay told Faifax. ‘When you’ve got a complaint then you’ve got an offence.’ The news comes just days after hackers stole and posted scantily clad photos of up to 500 Adelaide women on a […]

Local police chiefs focus on accountability, technology

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The national debate over how police interact with the public hasn’t gone unnoticed by several chiefs in Lake County. It’s the paths they’re taking to increase police accountability that differ. Police chiefs in Hammond, East Chicago, Gary, Griffith and Schererville also face the never-ending challenge of finding funding to purchase a growing list of technologies. Hammond Police Chief John Doughty said his department is currently testing body cameras from four companies. All officers working on patrol, traffic and gang and narcotics units could begin wearing the cameras by this summer. The cameras often are held up as a way to reduce unfounded complaints and increase police accountability. Two controversies last year in which Hammond police were accused of racial profiling and excessive force have decreased initial resistance to the cameras among the rank and file, Doughty said. The department is looking to purchase 125 to 150 body cameras at a cost of about $80,000, he said. The Gary Police Department also is in the process of acquiring body cameras for testing, spokesman Thomas Decanter said. East Chicago police have “an open mind” and are researching the feasibility of body cameras, Police Chief Mark Becker said. One of the greatest challenges […]
