Leaked credentials of Congress members by Anonymous hacker are inaccurate

Leaked credentials of Congress members by Anonymous hacker are inaccurate

Jul 19, 2013
Anonymous claimed it had stolen and leaked over 2,000 usernames and passwords for Hill staffers in an anti- PRISM protest, calling the move a pivotal moment for Congress. The Twitter handle @OpLastResort which claims to be affiliated with the famous hacktivist group posted the data and also tweeted: " We mean it. This is a pivotal moment for America, and we will not tolerate failure ." Congress actually fosters decent password best practices, requiring a special character, an uppercase letter, a lowercase letter, and a number to make up a code between 6-10 characters. What is perhaps most interesting about the hacked passwords is that they exemplify, in many cases they are just dictionary words with numbers tacked on to the end, the names of the staffers' bosses, or their favorite sports team, so the claimed hack and leaked database was probably outdated or fake.

AI Solutions Are the New Shadow IT

AI Solutions Are the New Shadow IT

Nov 22, 2023AI Security / SaaS Security
Ambitious Employees Tout New AI Tools, Ignore Serious SaaS Security Risks Like the  SaaS shadow IT  of the past, AI is placing CISOs and cybersecurity teams in a tough but familiar spot.  Employees are covertly using AI  with little regard for established IT and cybersecurity review procedures. Considering  ChatGPT's meteoric rise to 100 million users within 60 days of launch , especially with little sales and marketing fanfare, employee-driven demand for AI tools will only escalate.  As new studies show  some workers boost productivity by 40% using generative AI , the pressure for CISOs and their teams to fast-track AI adoption — and turn a blind eye to unsanctioned AI tool usage — is intensifying.  But succumbing to these pressures can introduce serious SaaS data leakage and breach risks, particularly as employees flock to AI tools developed by small businesses, solopreneurs, and indie developers.
