Malware automatically uploading stolen data to the File sharing sites

Malware automatically uploading stolen data to the File sharing sites Roland Dela Paz , a threat response engineer with Trend Micro have discovered a piece of malicious software that automatically uploads its stolen data cache to the SendSpace file-sharing service for retrieval. File-storage services offer several advantages for cybercriminals. SendSpace accepts files and then generates a link that can be shared with other people to download the content in the files. The malware has been configured to send files, copy the download link and send it to a command-and-control server along with the password needed to access the archive, Dela Paz wrote. Here is a screenshot of the Sendspace page leading to the archive of collected documents. Malware utilizing free online services are definitely not unheard of. Utilizing a public file hosting site is yet another clever way for cybercriminals to store stolen data as they do not need to set up a server that will store large amount of dat

#SOPA - The Hacker News say " NO WAY " Get mad and take action as you read how your internet privacy and freedoms are about to be taken away in our editor Patti Galle 's article on SOPA…….coming to your personal rights soon. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), or H.R. 3261, is a bill that was introduced on October 26, 2011 in the United States House of Representatives, by right-wing Texas Republican, Representative Lamar Smith and twelve initial co-sponsors. The Stop Online Piracy Act dramatically broadens the capacity of United States law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods. Proponents of bill H.R. 3261 state SOPA protects the intellectual property market and related industry, jobs and revenue, and is essential to reinforce and strengthen enforcement of copyright laws particularly against foreign websites. Opponents of the bill forcefully deem that the bill infringes on First Amendment rights, is e

SOPA in US and Censorship in India: A cocktail to destroy Internet Freedom !

January 19, 2012Mohit Kumar
SOPA in US and Censorship in India : A cocktail to destroy Internet Freedom ! As US senators mull over the SOPA(Stopping Online Piracy Act) and PIPA(Protecting Intellectual Property Act) bills, the world stands witness to a historic moment. Almost all big IT companies like Google, Wikipedia, Facebook, Mozilla, Godaddy, etc are speaking in one unanimous voice against SOPA and Internet Censorship. The draconian provisions of SOPA/PIPA are bound to create the deathbed of internet freedom and free speech, and if a careful reading of the proposed legislation is done, one realizes that it is likely to have the same impact on India. In the disguise of protecting copyrights and stopping piracy its completely clear that the US government is trying to assert its control over the free flow of information on internet which is some time uncomfortable to them. Giving power to Attorney General to direct search engines like Google to filter particular search results, or asking an ISP to manipulat

Breach confirmed in GlobalSign, SSL certificates not compromised

December 15, 2011Mohit Kumar
Breach confirmed in GlobalSign , SSL certificates not compromised GlobalSign said on Tuesday that the SSL certificate and key for www.globalsign.com may have been exposed after a hack on an external server in September. However, the company said that after investigating the breach it has found no evidence of rogue certificates being issued following the hack. A hacker known as " Comodohacker " compromised other certificate authorities including Comodo and DigiNotar. " I have access to their entire server, got DB backups, their linux / tar gzipped and downloaded, I even have private key of their OWN globalsign.com domain ," the hacker said in a Pastebin at the time. The investigation revealed that the compromise was limited to a peripheral Web server hosting the CA's website and did not affect the part of its network that deals with digital certificates. Companies use digital certificates as a cryptographic online trust technology. A stolen digital certificate can all

DUQU – Another Stuxnet in the Making ? Article by :   Nidhi Rastogi is a Cyber security professional based in New York. Article shared from THE HACKER NEWS magazine - November Edition. You can download Complete Magazine here . Barely a year into discovering Stuxnet, the world recently saw its powerful variant in the form of Duqu. It is believed that a Hungarian blogger was the first to have a tryst with the virus in early September at an ISP hosting service. Why it is important: Duqu has gained a lot of attention because of striking similarities with its famous predecessor, Stuxnet. Several Security researchers have concluded that 99 percent of Duqu software rules are same as Stuxnet including source code and keys for encryption. There is reasonable evidence by now that the damage caused by Stuxnet was real. Hence, Duqu is of concern to every security professional at the moment. How it functions: Duqu camouflages its own data behind normal web traffic to avoid suspicion from n

Duqu Trojan found in Indian Server

October 30, 2011Mohit Kumar
Duqu Trojan found in Indian Server Last week we update you about Duqu when Symantec said it had found a mysterious computer virus that contained code similar to Stuxnet, a piece of malware believed to have wreaked havoc on Iran's nuclear program. Two workers at a web-hosting company called Web Werks told Reuters that officials from India's Department of Information Technology last week took several hard drives and other components from a server that security firm Symantec Corp told them was communicating with computers infected with Duqu. The equipment seized from Web Werks, a privately held company in Mumbai with about 200 employees, might hold valuable data to help investigators determine who built Duqu and how it can be used. But putting the pieces together is a long and difficult process, experts said. " This one is challenging ," said Marty Edwards, director of the US Department of Homeland Security's Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response
