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.

Hacker who brought down FBI and Home Office websites ‘sorry’

A teenage hacker from Solihull who brought down the FBI and Home Office websites from his bedroom has said that he “honestly regrets” his actions. Charlton Floate, 19, used his internet expertise to target the US and British government sites — but avoided an immediate jail sentence last month. The 19-year-old was given an eight month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, and was ordered to carry out 250 hours of community service. Mr Recorder John Steele QC said that Floate was “highly intelligent” with a deep and clear knowledge of information technology who had taken a lead role in the conspiracy and had recruited others. The self-styled internet and online marketing guru had previously admitted three charges under the Computer Misuse Act and two of possessing prohibited images. The teenager, then aged 16, managed to cripple the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s internet crime complaints centre (IC3) site for more than five hours, by flooding the server with huge amounts of data traffic. Speaking to BBC 5 Live Daily , the reformed hacker expressed deep regret at his actions. He said: “I honestly regret doing that type of thing now. I got caught up in a world that is rather […]

Hacker jailed for eight months after attacking police, council, charity and porn websites

A jobless computer hacker was jailed today for eight months after launching a mass cyber attack on The Met Police, Tory Party and British Airways websites — from his bedroom in his parents’ house. Ian Sullivan, 51, flooded the internet servers for police forces, councils, charities and even porn sites as part of a campaign run by an international hackers’ group called Anonymous. Victims also included Merseyside Police , Trafford and Wirral councils and Crimestoppers during his five week spree, Liverpool Crown Court heard. Other sites targeted were the Bulgarian government and a political party in the oil rich West African country of Gabon, while children’s charity CAFCASS had to close for three days because of the chaos. The tech-wizard targeted official websites in revenge for his children being taken away in the late 1990s and Sullivan had ‘nursed that grievance’ for many years. He also infiltrated random sites including one featuring graphic videos of beheadings and executions related to Islamic extremism. Sullivan, who lives in his elderly parents’ semi-detached home in Farmer Place, Bootle , had admitted 21 charges of committing unauthorised acts with intent to impair the operation of or access to a computer after police from the […]

Google Chrome vulnerability allows Websites to Eavesdrop on You

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Just imagine, you are sitting in front of your laptop and your laptop is listening to your nearby conversations. What if the recorded audio from the system’s microphone is being instantly uploaded to a malicious website?Google has created a speech-recognition Application Programming Interface (API) that allows websites to interact with Google Chrome and the computer’s microphone allows you to speak instead of typing into any text box, to make hands-free web searches, quick conversions, and audio translator also work with them.In January, a flaw was discovered in Google Chrome that enabled malicious websites with speech recognition software to eavesdrop on users’ conversations from background without their knowledge using an outdated Google speech API.A new similar vulnerability in Google Chrome has been discovered by Israeli security researcher, Guy Aharonovsky, claimed that the Chrome’s speech-recognition API has a vulnerability that allows attackers to turn victim’s machine into a listening port without asking for any permission, even if your microphone is completely disabled. “Even blocking any access to the microphone under chrome://settings/content will not remedy this flaw.” he said in a blog post. Reported vulnerability exploits the “-x-webkit-speech” feature of Chrome’s speech-recognition API and allows a malicious web application to eavesdrop in the background […]

Heartbleed – OpenSSL Zero-day Bug leaves Millions of websites Vulnerable

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

It is advised to those who are running their web server with OpenSSL 1.0.1 through 1.0, then it is significantly important that you update to OpenSSL 1.0.1g immediately or as soon as possible. As this afternoon, an extremely critical programming flaw in the OpenSSL has been discovered that apparently exposed the cryptographic keys and private data from some of the most important sites and services on the Internet.The bug was independently discovered by security firm Codenomicon along with a Google Security engineer. The flaw is in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library and its weakness allows cyber criminals to steal the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) or TLS (Transport Security Layer) encryption used to secure the Internet.OpenSSL is an open-source implementation of the SSL and TLS protocols. The core library implements the basic cryptographic functions that enable SSL and TLS encryption. Mostly every websites use either SSL or TLS, even the Apache web server that powers almost half of the websites over internet utilizes OpenSSL.The discoverer of the vulnerability dubbed the bug as ‘Heartbleed bug’, as the exploit rests on a bug in the implementation of OpenSSL’s TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520).This […]

90 Percent of Websites Leak User Data to Third Parties: Study

Internet users’ being tracked by particular websites is not a recent development and has been reported by several studies. However, a new study tries to show the magnitude of user data tracking by some popular websites. It further claims that not only did some of the top websites leak user data to third parties, but at times also shared it on the Web. Timothy Libert, a researcher with the University of Pennsylvania, has published a study that provides an analysis of the privacy compromises on one million popular websites. In his findings, the study adds that almost nine in ten websites leak user information to third-parties and claims that the “users are usually unaware of.” Further, the study suggested that over six websites in ten spawn third-party cookies and over eight in ten load Javascript code from an external party onto a user’s system. “Sites which leak user data contact an average of nine external domains, indicating users may be tracked by multiple entities in tandem. By tracing the unintended disclosure of personal browsing histories on the Web, it is revealed that a handful of American companies receive the vast bulk of user data. Finally, roughly one in five websites […]
