Governments cannot protect personal records, can the blockchain?

Governments cannot protect personal records, can the blockchain?

On June 4 of this year, a larger than usual privacy breach happened to the US government  Office of Personnel Management (OPM). This major hack resulted in the entire user database being stolen, including the records of more than 21 and a half million people’s most detailed government identification. The OPM does not merely keep the personnel records of government employees. The agency does every background check that the government needs, mostly for sub-contractors of businesses that supply labor to government projects. “We conduct background investigations for prospective employees and security clearances across government, with hundreds of thousands of cases each year.” James Anderson, a former engineering contractor and bitcoin user from Atlanta, was among the 21.5 million. Although he wasn’t a government employee, six months after the event he received a letter from the OPM stating that they had been hacked, and his entire identity was compromised. Brave New Coin spoke with Anderson and confirmed that it was a worst-case scenario data breach. His stolen information was gathered long ago, during a background check on in 2011. The job was a contractor position, for an engineering firm whose primary customer was the US Navy. “I had a background check […]

Teen hackers strike again, allegedly gain access to U.S. arrest records database

A group of teenage hackers going by the name of “Crackas With Attitude” (CWA) are on a rampage, breaking into federal systems to embarrass the U.S. government. Network jobs are hot; salaries expected to rise in 2016 Wireless network engineers, network admins, and network security pros can expect above-average pay READ NOW After gaining access to the personal AOL email account of CIA Director John Brennan last month, the teenagers reportedly broke into the Comcast email account of FBI Deputy Director Mark Giuliana‘s wife, dumped personal details of thousands of government employees and then claimed to have gained access to the national Joint Automated Booking System, JABS, a database of arrest records, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center and the FBI’s Virtual Command Center. “Cracka,” one of the hackers who also claims to be a stoner, told Motherboard the CWA targeted FBI Deputy Director Mark Giuliana because the FBI is investigating the hacker group and plans to “make an example” out of them. CWA “hacked” into the email account of Giuliana’s wife, found Giuliana’s phone number and then called him. Giuliana allegedly told Cracka, “I don’t know you but you better watch your back.” The hacker tweeted that Comcast and […]

Health care records make fertile field for cyber crime

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Those seemingly harmless medical forms everyone fills out before seeing a doctor can lead to identity theft if they get into the wrong hands. Names, birthdates and – more importantly – Social Security numbers can help hackers open fake credit lines, file false tax returns and create false medical records. And health care businesses can lag far behind banks, credit card companies and retailers in protecting such sensitive information. “It’s an entire profile of who you are,” said Cynthia Larose, chairwoman of the privacy and security practice at the law firm Mintz Levin in Boston. “It essentially allows someone to become you.” The danger of cyberattacks was highlighted last week when Anthem, the nation’s second-largest health insurer, said hackers broke into a database storing information on 80 million people. That hack led to a particularly valuable trove of data because it exposed Social Security numbers, a key to a range of identity thefts. Those numbers were created to track the earnings history of workers in order to determine Social Security benefits. Now, health care companies are, in some cases, required to collect the numbers by government agencies. They also use them because they are unique to […]

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Health insurer Anthem is admitting hackers breached its computer database and stole personal data from millions of its current and former members. The attack was only discovered last week. It impacts health plans provided by Anthem Blue Cross, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Amerigroup, Caremore, Unicare, Healthlink, and DeCare. Anthem, which is the country’s second-largest health insurer, says the hackers gained access to a database containing the personal information for approximately 80 million of its customers and employees. The stolen data includes names, birth dates, medical and Social Security numbers, street addresses, e-mail addresses, as well as employment and income data. Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish says there is no evidence the hackers accessed bank or credit card numbers, or medical data such as claims information, test results or diagnostic codes. The company says the external cyber attack was “very sophisticated” and once it was discovered they contacted the FBI. So far there is no indication as to whom may have carried out the attack. Anthem has hired cyber security firm Mandiant to evaluate their systems in an attempt to prevent hackers from breaching […]
