Cyber Strategies for a World at War

OPEN SOURCE AGGREGATION & ANALYSIS

Adaptive Security

Digital innovation

Security is a huge topic that always appears as a top priority in the agendas of governments and companies, because it plays an important role in various contexts of our society. For example, we need security in the context of economics and politics, security for houses and enterprises, security for people in the streets, security in our jobs, security in some of our relationships and of course, security for our digital information (a.k.a. cyber-security). Throughout history, people have always craved for security, because it’s the only logical solution to one of the most primitive instincts we have: fear. The cavemen invented fire to protect themselves against physical threats, as the contemporary men invented firewalls to protect themselves against cyber-threats, and security keeps evolving as the world keeps spinning.

Cyber Security – Chinese Net Users Top 731 Million In 2016: Report

Site Title

China has 731 million Internet users as of December 2016, roughly the size of Europe’s population, according to a report released by the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) on Sunday.

The number of Web users grew by 42.99 million in 2016, or 6.2 percent from the previous year, accounting for 53.2 percent of China’s total population, the report said.

Li Yi, a Shanghai-based independent IT expert, told the Global Times the surge in the number of smartphones was the primary reason for the growth in Net users. Some 695 million netizens used mobile phones to access the Internet in 2016, with a growth rate exceeding 10 percent for the third straight year, the report said. Smartphone-based Internet use accounted for 95.1 percent of all Internet users, up from 90.1 percent in 2015.

The report noted that 201 million people or 27 percent of Internet users were from rural areas…

Cyber Threats Posed To the Middle East after the Rebirth Of Shamoon

Technical Assessment

Rebirth of Shamoon:

A computer virus can be so dangerous that it can flush away all your data and clean up all your disk spaces. One example of it is the newest and latest Shamoon virus which is reported to be active in Saudi Arabia. Its Shamoon’s rebirth! First it attacked Gulf and mainly KSA to espionage the energy sector in 2012. The attack was so severe that it infected and destroyed the data of 35000 computers only in Saudi Aramco.

Shamoon 2:

It is believed that the rebirth of Shamoon named as Shamoon 2 can be more vigorous now and it can destruct ten times more what it did in 2012. Already in the very initial stages it has started dismantling the networks of big governmental and private sectors.

Moving towards a secure digital economy

Cyber Security News OrfOnline

 Demonetisation,Digital Economy,Digital Payments

Even as incessant political bickering is polarizing opinion on demonetisation, India is making a significant transition to a digital payments ecosystem. This project endeavours to breach the urban-rural divide, geographical exclusions of the real world, and income criteria that privileged only a few with access to certain private and public services. This new digital payments ecosystem is brutal in its attempt to alter the way India transacts, trades and is taxed.

A wider adoption of digital payments will invariably change the dimensions of risks, crime and security as well. If pickpockets were a common menace some decades ago, cybercriminals may dominate conversations in the days ahead as they eye digital and online transactions. While the “pickpocket” had to select a relatively “fat target” to make the effort and risk worthwhile, the cyber thief will have a low-risk environment (lack of forensic…

DevSecOps Putting Security at the Heart of DevOps

auspiciousagile

DevSecOps RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco and DevSecCon in Singapore will both take place in February, and point to the trend toward merging DevOps and security, a combination called DevSecOps.

DevSecOps – the combination of DevOps and Security (or SecOps) – is a new trend making its presence known across the internet, industry and conferences.  With DevSecOps RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco and DevSecCon in Singapore coming up in February 2017 we take a closer look at this new trend.

DevSecOps puts security squarely in the middle of DevOps.  No longer treating security as an afterthought, or as a one time review in a traditional or waterfall project context.  So what is DevSecOps?  

DevSecOps.org says that “The mindset established by DevSecOps lends itself to a cooperative system whereby business operators are supplied with tools and processes that help with security decision making along with security staff that…

Hong Kong securities brokers hit by cyber attacks, may face more

Hong Kong’s securities regulator said brokers in the city had suffered cyber attacks and warned of possible further incidents across the industry.

[HONG KONG] Hong Kong’s securities regulator said brokers in the city had suffered cyber attacks and warned of possible further incidents across the industry.

Regulators in Hong Kong have been stepping up efforts over the past year to combat the growing menace of cyber attacks on companies. A survey in November showed the average number of such attacks detected by firms in mainland China and Hong Kong grew a whopping 969 per cent between 2014 and 2016.

In a circular to licensed firms late on Thursday, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) said it had been informed by the Hong Kong police that brokers had encountered so-called “distributed denial of service” (DDoS) attacks targeting their websites and received blackmails from criminals.

POTUS Password Problems…Epic Security Fail!

Life Bytes: Thoughts of a Digital Forensic Analyst

So following the inauguration of the now President Trump, there was a lot of talk of Cyber Security being a priority for the new US Government.  Whether you support Trump or not, putting financial backing into improving Cyber Security can only be a good thing for the global population, not just the US, so fair play to that!

However, several security blunders recently from major US officials, including the POTUS himself, have cast doubt over the awareness of good security practices within the administration, and also how serious they actually are about cyber security (or are they more concerned about posting copious amounts of controversial Twitter posts…?!).

Today I was ready several different articles, all detailing several blunders.  Firstly, it turns out that Trump is still not only using his insecure Android device to Tweet from the Whitehouse, but the @POTUS twitter account has actually been linked to a private…

Cyber terrorism is a very real thing and it looks like Kontrol Magazine may be the latest victim of it! Apparently, the sprawling Atlanta based publication had its website, www.Kontrolmag.com, hacked today by the notorious Turk Hack Team! As you may recall, back in 2013 this organization single-handedly immobilized over 400 American websites. It all went down early this afternoon when one of Kontrol’s writers’, Ronda Brooks, tried to log on to the site and received the following notification.

Respect the Hackers! Or: Why we all should care more about IT Security

Digital Strategy now!

Last Wednesday, I started my 10 Week IT Security Challenge on Twitter ( CdtConsulting ) and Instagram ( cdt_on_tour ). The first tasks looks super easy: Make a list of all technical devices in the room. So, how does your list look like?

  • Laptop/ PC
  • Tablet
  • Smartphone
  • Smartwatch

What about those?

  • Router
  • Printer/ Scanner/ Fax
  • Fixed Telephone
  • Audio System/ Speakers
  • Monitors/ TV Screens
  • Server

And if you are an Internet of Things enthusiast, living in a Smart Home:

  • Heating
  • Light
  • Air Condition
  • Alarm System
  • Access Control

Yes, all these devices use your local network or the internet to communicate with other devices. Therefore, you should put them all on your IT Security list. No matter when you bought a device and who sold it to you – most come without any Security applications. That makes it easy for hackers to gain control of your data – and…

The Death of the Password & the Future of Consumer Protection

Eclipse

There’s a revolution happening and we don’t even know it. And, I’m not talking about the Women’s March, because we are all well aware of that revolution.

I’m talking about a revolution of passwords. How many passwords do you have written down in a notebook somewhere? Bank passwords, WiFi passwords, Spotify passwords and about a hundred more passwords for various things we sign up for.

What if I told you, that in the near future, we won’t be using a single password to sign into anything? You would call me crazy, especially for online banking, right? Wrong.

Who has the time, memory, or even an abundance of notepad paper to keep all these passwords? Companies like Gigya are ridding the world of passwords. You will have noticed that anything you sign up for, you have the option to create an account with a single push of a button – “Sign in…

Data Breaches: An Employer’s Duty to Protect Employees’ Personal Information

8560628By Aaron Wais

Recently, there has been much discussion about the Superior Court of Pennsylvania’s ruling in Dittman v. UPMC, which affirmed a lower court’s order dismissing an employee class action against their employer over a data breach.  While this was a significant victory for employers, non-Pennsylvania employers should temper their enthusiasm.  As one recent federal court decision in California makes clear, the reasoning of Dittman may not extend far beyond, if at all, the borders of Pennsylvania.  Moreover, regardless of their outcomes, both cases also reinforce the need for employers to maintain legally compliant, written policies for safeguarding private information and responding to data breaches.

In Dittman, a data breach resulted in the theft of the personal information (e.g., names, birth dates, social security numbers, banking information) of approximately 62,000 UMPC current and former employees.  The information was used to file fraudulent tax returns and steal tax…

Russian Computer Experts Arrested for Treason

Two men were arrested on Wednesday, January 25 in December by Russia’s FSB on charges of treason. The men are Sergei Mikhailov, a senior officer of the Federal Security Service, or FSB, and Ruslan Stoyanov, the head of computer incident response investigations at Kaspersky Lab, which makes antivirus programs. [Update: The arrest was just announced; it appears the men were arrested in December.]  Earlier, the firing of the director of the Center for Information Security, Andrei Gerasimov, was announced, reportedly related to an investigation into the agency’s cooperation with Kaspersky on criminal hacking cases. Moscow Times is now reporting that two more men have been arrested: Dmitry Dokuchaev, who worked in the same FSB unit as Mikhailov, and another whose name has not been released.

Ransomware app hosted in Google Play infects unsuspecting Android user

The Cyber-Secret Futurist

Google Play, the official market for Android apps, was caught hosting a ransomware app that infected at least one real-world handset, security researchers said Tuesday.

The ransomware was dubbed Charger and was hidden inside an app called EnergyRescue, according to a blog post published by security firm Check Point Software. Once installed, Charger stole SMS contacts and prompted unsuspecting users to grant it all-powerful administrator rights. If users clicked OK, the malicious app locked the device and displayed the following message:

You need to pay for us, otherwise we will sell portion of your personal information on black market every 30 minutes. WE GIVE 100% GUARANTEE THAT ALL FILES WILL RESTORE AFTER WE RECEIVE PAYMENT.

Private Email Addesses: Trump, Clinton and Bush

Reporting San Diego

300px-white_house_north_and_south_sides

Jan 26, 2017 (San Diego) One of the major points made during the campaign was that Hillary Clinton broke the law with the use of a private server. It went around, we are told, the preservation of documents. In fact, it was one of the reasons why many screamed “lock her up” at Donald Trump rallies.

We covered that during the campaign, and now we find ourselves with an administration aping their predecessors in the White House. In 2007 there was a controversy for the George Bush staff using private Republican National Committee email addresses. It turns out the Trump administration is doing the same.

This is where partisan politics plays a critical role. All those republicans who were screaming “lock her up,” are silent on this. It seems that they do not care. There are real issues with this. For starters, the one raised by the national archives over the…

NIST Releases Update to Cybersecurity Framework

noTheNORM

Jan 09, 2017

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a draft update to the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity—also known as the Cybersecurity Framework. Providing new details on managing cyber supply chain risks, clarifying key terms, and introducing measurement methods for cybersecurity, the updated framework aims to further develop NIST’s voluntary guidance to organizations on reducing cybersecurity risks.

The Cybersecurity Framework was published in February 2014 following a collaborative process involving industry, academia and government agencies, as directed by a presidential executive order(link is external). The original goal was to develop a voluntary framework to help organizations manage cybersecurity risk in the nation’s critical infrastructure, such as bridges and the electric power grid, but the framework has been widely adopted by many types of organizations across the country and around the world.

Microsoft to continue to invest over US$1b a year on cyber security

US software firm Microsoft Corp will continue to invest over US$1 billion annually on cyber security research and development in the coming years, a senior executive said.

[TEL AVIV] US software firm Microsoft Corp will continue to invest over US$1 billion annually on cyber security research and development in the coming years, a senior executive said.

This amount does not include acquisitions Microsoft may make in the sector, Bharat Shah, Microsoft vice president of security, told Reuters on the sidelines of the firm’s BlueHat cyber security conference in Tel Aviv.

“As more and more people use cloud, that spending has to go up,” Mr Shah said.

CSA Issues Cybersecurity Disclosure Expectations

Cybersecurity Canada

By: Imran Ahmad, Peter Dunne & Pierre Soulard

Increasingly, cybersecurity is a top of mind issue for most organizations. Senior management, board members and investors are particularly concerned given the potential
negative impact a major cyber-attack can have on organization from a financial, legal, reputational and operational standpoint.

It is therefore no surprise that the Canadian Securities Administrators (the “CSA”) has been active in the area of cybersecurity in recent months. Last week, it issued Staff Notice 51-347 (the “Notice”), an updated notice on cybersecurity expectations for issuers regarding the disclosure of cybersecurity risks and incidents. The Notice also includes a summary of the CSA’s review of the most recent annual filings of 240 constituents of the S&P/TSX Composite Index, focusing on whether and how issuers addressed cybersecurity
issues in their risk factor disclosure.

Ransomware – Quick Tips

Techie.Buzz

One of the growing cyber threats that got a lot of attention last year was ransomware with a variety of high profile victims.

What is it?   

Ransomware is a computer malware that installs itself covertly on a computer, carries out an attack that encrypts the files on that computer and then demands a ransom payment to decrypt the files for the user to regain access to them.

Typically, the ransomware could be bundled with legitimate software much like a Trojan horse. Often times the Trojan installs some form of scareware that claims the victim’s machine is at risk or has been found hosting illegal content.

The end result is eventually to coerce the victim into paying for the decryption key in order to gain access to his files.

How would I get infected?

There are 2 main ways ransomware spreads itself. A compromised website that contains the payload or a…

Internet of Things (IoT) & Issues

Welcome to the World of Cyber Security

1What Is the Internet of Things (IoT).

In the past, technology was relatively simple; you just connected your computer to the Internet and used it for your daily activities. However, technology became more advanced when mobile devices came into our lives, devices such as smartphones and tablets. These devices put the power of desktop computers into our pockets. While far more mobile, these devices also brought their own, unique security challenges. The next big technical advancement is the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things, often shortened to IoT, is all about connecting everyday devices to the Internet, devices from doorbells and light bulbs to toy dolls and thermostats. These connected devices can make our lives much simpler; for example, having your lights automatically activate as your phone recognizes when you get close to home. The IoT market is moving at an amazing pace, with new devices appearing every week…

"The nature of conflict is changing. The risk of conflict will increase due to diverging interests among major powers, an expanding terror threat, continued instability in weak states, and the spread of lethal, disruptive technologies. Disrupting societies will become more common, with long-range precision weapons, cyber, and robotic systems to target infrastructure from afar, and more accessible technology to create weapons of mass destruction."

A World at War

The World is at War. It is a world war that is being fought right now, in real time, virtually everywhere on the planet. It is a world war that is, perhaps, more encompassing and global in nature than any other world war in history because, not only is it being fought by nations and their governments, it is also being fought by non-state actors such as terrorists, organized crime, unorganized crime, and many other known and unknown entities. It is a total world war being fought every day on the hidden and dark battle fields of the cyber domain. It is a war that, according to some intelligence estimates, has the potential to be as nearly as serious and as deadly as a nuclear war... [MORE]
