Hackers steal Dell 1000's customer information !

Apr 07, 2011
Hackers steal Dell 1000's customer information ! The personal information of thousands of Australians has been stolen by hackers who raided a US-based database company, in what some experts are calling the biggest data theft in US hist ory. Dell Australia says customer data was "exposed" by an unauthorised entry into the computer system of email service provider Epsilon. The information includes the names and email addresses of Dell Australia's customers. In a statement, Dell assured its customers that credit card, banking and other personally-identifiable information was not at risk and remained secure. Australian Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim says Dell has informed him of the data breach. "Dell Australia have also advised all of its customers affected by the data breach and have set up an advice service that those customers can use to obtain further information if needed," he said in a statement. Mr Pilgrim has launched an investigati

Stolen data may be sold on cyber black market !

Apr 07, 2011
Hackers behind what computer security experts believe could be the biggest data theft in US history may be planning to sell the information to cyber criminals for targeted scams. And while the tens of millions of names and email addresses swiped from online marketing firm Epsilon do not appear to have been used yet for cyber crime, the experts said it may just be a matter of time. Major US banks, hotels, retail outlets and other companies have been warning customers to be wary of fraudulent emails after Epsilon acknowledged last week that hackers had gained access to the Texas-based company's email system. Epsilon, which provides email services for some 2,500 companies around the world, has said that customer data for about two per cent of its total clients was exposed in what it called an "unauthorized entry." Epsilon, which sends out over 40 billion emails a year, did not identify the firms whose customers' names and email addresses were taken but dozens of
WiFi Hacking Is Now Legal in Dutch !

WiFi Hacking Is Now Legal in Dutch !

Mar 19, 2011
Breaking in to an encrypted router and using the WiFi connection is not an criminal offence, a Dutch court ruled. WiFi hackers can not be prosecuted for breaching router security. A court in The Hague ruled earlier this month that it is legal to break WiFi security to use the internet connection. The court also decided that piggybacking on open WiFi networks in bars and hotels can not be prosecuted. In many countries both actions are illegal and often can be fined. The ruling is linked to a case of a student who threatened to shoot down everyone at the Maerlant College in The Hague, a high school. He posted a threat on the internet message board 4chan.org using a WiFi connection that he broke into. The student was convicted for posting the message and sentenced to 20 hours of community service, but he was acquitted of the WiFi hacking charges. The Judge reasoned that the student didn't gain access to the computer connected to the router, but only used the routers internet con

SHQ Response Platform and Risk Centre to Enable Management and Analysts Alike

May 13, 2024Threat Detection / SoC / SIEM
In the last decade, there has been a growing disconnect between front-line analysts and senior management in IT and Cybersecurity. Well-documented challenges facing modern analysts revolve around a high volume of alerts, false positives, poor visibility of technical environments, and analysts spending too much time on manual tasks. The Impact of Alert Fatigue and False Positives  Analysts are overwhelmed with alerts. The knock-on effect of this is that fatigued analysts are at risk of missing key details in incidents, and often conduct time-consuming triaging tasks manually only to end up copying and pasting a generic closing comment into a false positive alert.  It is likely that there will always be false positives. And many would argue that a false positive is better than a false negative. But for proactive actions to be made, we must move closer to the heart of an incident. That requires diving into how analysts conduct the triage and investigation process. SHQ Response Platfo
Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter Account Hacked By Geek Activist !

Ashton Kutcher's Twitter Account Hacked By Geek Activist !

Mar 03, 2011
Hey, look: Ashton Kutcher's Twitter  account  was hacked in the name of Internet justice. Someone broke into his account and tweeted the messages above. Judging from their message, they probably used the notorious "Firesheep" application, which makes it easy for anyone to hijack other people's unsecured browsing sessions over wi-fi. The point the mysterious hacker(s) was making is that many of our favourite web applications, like Twitter, don't use high-security "SSL" encryption to protect their data. This makes it easier for people to snoop on users for nefarious means, like cracking down on Internet activists. Facebook recently enabled SSL, to the praise of human rights advocates and consumer groups. Kutcher's at TED right now, so he's probably been the victim of some well-meaning nerd. Kutcher should feel lucky that the person didn't feel like picking fights with random celebrities. Unless he's in on the prank…

Facebook, Youtube & Twitter Officials Keep Quiet on Its Role in Revolts that toppled governments in Tunisia and Egypt !

Feb 15, 2011
With Facebook playing a starring role in the revolts that toppled governments in Tunisia and Egypt, you might think the company's top executives would use this historic moment to highlight its role as the platform for democratic change. Instead, they really do not want to talk about it. The social media giant finds itself under countervailing pressures after the uprisings in the Middle East. While it has become one of the primary tools for activists to mobilize protests and share information, Facebook does not want to be seen as picking sides for fear that some countries — like Syria, where it just gained a foothold — would impose restrictions on its use or more closely monitor users, according to some company executives who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing internal business. And Facebook does not want to alter its firm policy requiring users to sign up with their real identities. The company says this requirement protects its users from fraud. Howev

Finally U.S. Policy to Address Internet Freedom !

Feb 15, 2011
 Days after Facebook and Twitter added fuel to a revolt in Egypt, the Obama administration plans to announce a new policy on Internet freedom, designed to help people get around barriers in cyberspace while making it harder for autocratic governments to use the same technology to repress dissent. The State Department's policy, a year in the making, has been bogged down by fierce debates over which projects it should support, and even more basically, whether to view the Internet primarily as a weapon to topple repressive regimes or as a tool that autocrats can use to root out and crush dissent. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who will lay out the policy in a speech on Tuesday, acknowledged the Internet's dual role in an address a year ago, and administration officials said she would touch on that theme again, noting how social networks were used by both protesters and governments in the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and other Arab countries. The State Department plans to fina
