A third of pirated movie sites spread malicious software, report says

You might want to think twice before you try to watch a pirated copy of of the new Star Wars movie online. Aside from the fact that the film will probably be way better on a big screen with surround sound, a new report finds that many websites set up to distribute pirated movies and TV shows spread malicious malware. Cybersecurity firm RiskIQ probed a sample of 800 piracy websites and found that one in three contain malware that can expose a user to identity theft, financial loss, and hackers taking control of their computer. Internet users who visited piracy sites were 28 times more likely to get malware from so-called torrent sites than from licensed or mainstream media websites. Almost half the time, the malware was delivered by “drive-by downloads,” meaning the malicious software was triggered just by visiting a site — users did not have to click again or actually download a video to get infected. Once hackers gain access into a computer, they can steal bank and credit card data or personal information, which can be sold in an underground market. Another tactic some hackers use is to lock a person out of their computer and demand […]

Child abuse royal commission: George Pell ‘crestfallen’ after call with abuse victim, priest John Walshe says

In the phone call, Cardinal Pell and the victim, David Ridsdale, discussed the fact that Mr Ridsdale had been sexually abused by his uncle, Father Gerald Ridsdale.

In May, Mr Ridsdale told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse the conversation ended acrimoniously after Cardinal Pell allegedly said: “I want to know what it will take to keep you quiet.”

Cardinal Pell denies ever trying to bribe Mr Ridsdale and rejected the suggestion the phone call ended acrimoniously.

Father John Walshe was living with Cardinal Pell in 1993.

He told the royal commission he remembered Bishop Pell, as he was known then, coming out of an office after the phone call.

Russian hacking suspect says he thought arrest was abduction

A Russian man charged with hacking into U.S. businesses testified Friday that he thought he was being kidnapped when three federal agents put him in handcuffs at a Maldives airport last year and led him from the building. A former Maldivian prosecutor and expert on the country’s laws testified later in the day that the arrest of Roman Seleznev by U.S. agents was conducted in an unlawful manner and violated the country’s constitution. Hussian Shameem also said the Seleznev’s rights were violated when they did not offer a lawyer and searched his luggage without a warrant. Seleznev, who spoke through an interpreter in federal court, said one of the agents shoved him into a room and forced him onto a couch before telling him he was under arrest. The son of a Russian Parliament member said he asked to see a lawyer and call the Russian embassy, but the agents refused. They searched his luggage without permission and refused to tell him where he was going, he said. When they covered his handcuffs with a T-shirt before walking him to a chartered airplane, “it looked very strange to me,” Seleznev said. “I thought that really they were kidnapping me,” he […]

Microsoft and US Army Hacker flees overseas, says his case is going no where after 3 years

Meet Dylan Wheeler. He is the hacker who allegedly hacked into Microsoft, Valve and US Army websites and has been in the Australian law enforcement agencies radar for past 3 years but they have not been able to arrest him. Wheeler, an Australian teenage hacker from Perth, was able to flee easily despite having been ordered to take his passport into custody. Mr. Wheeler, was only 17, when he and his hacker gang was accused of hacking and stealing at least $US100 million ($A108.2 million) worth of software and data from Microsoft, Valve and the US Army. He was under police radar following a joint international investigation into five suspected hackers, most of them US-based. Facing a possible sentence of ten years, Mr. Wheeler fled the country almost after three years later. He says that it was really scary how easily he made way and was able to flee the country. Currently, residing in the Czech Republic, Mr. Wheeler told 7.30, “I left Australia because my case went on for about two to three years and it was getting nowhere.” “What they really wanted to do was take away my freedom and keep me confined into a room and I was not prepared […]

Maine among the states ‘least vulnerable to identity theft and fraud,’ research site says

Maine among the states ‘least vulnerable to identity theft and fraud,’ research site says

Identity theft and fraud remain problems everywhere, and Maine is no different. However, in the latest data analysis by the prolific number crunchers at the finance site WalletHub, identity theft and fraud have been less of a threat to Maine residents than folks living in all but two other states. WalletHub, of course, runs regular data analyses comparing cities and states based on wide ranges of criteria, from public safety to education to sports to health. The resultant rankings often lack nuance, as they’re based on broad, nationwide statistics, but they provide interesting comparisons of places with that disclaimer in mind. When it comes to identity theft, the site’s researchers looked primarily at complaints per 100,000 residents, cybercrime related dollar losses per capita, data breaches per 100,000 residents and the rate of credit card fraud in each state. Maine had the least employment fraud complaints per 100,000 residents in the country, as well as the lowest trackable financial losses due to cybercrime, based on WalletHub’s review.

China’s Xinhua says U.S. OPM hack was not state-sponsored

China’s official Xinhua news agency said on Wednesday anINVESTIGATION into a massive U.S. computer breach last year that compromised data on more than 22 million federal workers found that the hacking attack was criminal, not state-sponsored. In an article about a meeting in Washington between top U.S. and Chinese officials on cyberSECURITY issues, Xinhua said the breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) was among the cases discussed. The report did not give details of who conducted the investigation or whether both U.S. and Chinese officials agreed with the conclusion. The Cyberspace Administration of China, the country’s Internet regulator, did not immediately reply to a request for comment. In Washington, OPM referred inquiries to the U.S. Department of HomelandSECURITY, which also did not immediately respond to a request for comment. White House spokesman Josh Earnest would not comment on the results of the U.S.-Chinese talks but called the dialogue “an importantSTEP” toward addressing longstanding U.S. concerns about Chinese cyber espionage. U.S. intelligence chief James Clapper in June said the OPM cyber attack was carried out by Chinese hackers but did not specifically accuse China’s government. Clapper told a Washington intelligence conference: “You have to kind of salute the […]

China Confirms OPM Hack, Says Criminal in Origin

China has admitted for the first time that a massive hacking attack on U.S. government databases was carried out by Chinese hackers, but denies it was a state-backed operation. Chinese state media say the incident was among several others discussed during high-level cyber security talks in Washington this week. The revelation was mentioned almost in passing in a Xinhua state media report this week on the talks. The report did not provide any other details about the hackers or if they have been arrested. “Through investigation, the case turned out to be a criminal case rather than a state-sponsored cyber attack as the U.S. side has previously suspected,” the report says. Hackers arrested According to a report in The Washington Post Tuesday, China says a handful of hackers were arrested in connection with the case, shortly before President Xi Jinping visited Washington in September. The identities of those arrested and whether they are connected to the Chinese government remains unclear, the report adds. The hacking attack on the Office of Personnel Management’s computer systems led to a massive breach of the personal information of nearly 22 million current and former U.S. federal employees, job applicants and their families. U.S. officials […]

The NSA Says It Will Finally Stop Spying On Millions of Americans at Midnight on Saturday

At midnight on Saturday, the federal government’s bulk data-gathering program for American phone conversations will come to an end at last. The move comes more than two years after former government contractor-turned whistleblower Edward Snowden released thousands of classified documents to Guardian journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill. His disclosure triggering a movement that demanded the National Security Agency (NSA) stop spying on its own citizens. The story of the spying scandal was turned into the 2014 documentary Citizenfour, which won an Oscar the following year. According to NBC, after Saturday night the government must make a formal request to the telephone company any time it wants to examine a phone number that it suspects is linked to a terrorism case. The agency also cannot hold recorded phone calls without need. The move, granted by the passing of the USA Freedom Act last summer, was called “a first step but a modest one”by The Guardian’s MacAskill, adding that the NSA still has a huge capacity for surveillance: The problem – and it is a major one – is the reform applies only to phone records. The NSA can continue to harvest bulk communications from the internet and social […]

Wanted teen hacker says it’s ‘scary’ how easily he was able to leave Australia

At a time of heightenedSECURITY fears, a teenage hacker has left authorities red-faced and raised serious questions about borderSECURITY. Dylan Wheeler was just 17 when police charged him with being part of a group that allegedly hacked into theCOMPUTERS ofMICROSOFT and the US Army. He ended up fleeing the country, facing a possible 10-year jail sentence, even though he’d been ordered to surrender his passport. Now he’s told Lauren Day he has no regrets and no plans to return. DYLAN WHEELER, HACKER: To be honest, I don’t see it as on the run. I mean, what’s coming out of Australia now, I don’t really want to be associated with the politics. All these draconian laws, I don’t feel comfortable calling myself Australian. Really, I feel a lot better being free. LAUREN DAY, REPORTER: Dylan Wheeler’s not your average opinionated 19-year-old on a gap year. He’s wanted by police and his name is on a Europol list. If found guilty, he faces up to 10 years in jail. DYLAN WHEELER: At this point in time, I don’t plan to return to Australia. This is on the advice of human rights lawyers I’ve spoken to. Basically because I am not guaranteed a […]
