25 Most Notorious Hackers To Ever Get Caught - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
James Scott's insight:

"Hacker" is a term used to refer to a variety of individuals and communities. Generally  a hacker is somebody whose mission is to break into remote computers without proper authorization through the use of communication networks, the most common of which is the Internet. Though the term "hacker" essentially refers to somebody (normally computer programmers) who can subvert computer security without any malicious purpose, the definition of the word has evolved into a term referring to computer criminals who exploits their computer savvy abilities to illegally access computer systems for malicious purposes. Here is a list of the top 25 most notorious  hackers to ever get caught.

Cyber Security - Android Apps on Google Play

James Scott's insight:

Since 2002, there has been an enormous increase in the number of known server vulnerabilities, leaving the traditional defensive solutions far behind. Today, attackers have improved on the sophistication used and the nature of the crime has changed. For example, web attacks between 2008 and 2010 caused 53 Seattle-based enterprises to face damages worth $3 million. Most such attacks are because of complacency and not remaining alert to the threat. The CEO's Manual on Cyber Security teaches you how to educate employees as well as develop a framework for security management against social engineering, keeping your corporation one step ahead of the attackers. It also details how enterprises can implement defenses against social engineering within their security policy. In this book you will learn how to avoid and prevent all of the following and more: • Web Attacks • Social Engineering • Denial of Service caused by botnets • Cloud Hacks • Attacks via the Universal Serial Bus • Clickjacking and cross-site scripting • Phishing attacks from trusted third parties • Data Exfiltration • SSFR Attacks and CRIME (Compression Ratio Info-Leak Made Easy). Don't let your company fall victim to the thousands that will try to compromise its security and take it for all they can.

Cyberattacks becoming a plague upon healthcare organizations

Report sheds light on vulnerability of healthcare companies to hackers
more...
James Scott's curator insight, March 23, 2014 11:02 AM

According to a recently released report conducted by SANS, an organization devoted to IT security training, certification and research, and Norse, a provider of live threat intelligence-based security solutions, the healthcare industry has been inundated by cyberattacks. Between September 2012 and October 2013, the SANS-Norse Healthcare Cyberthreat Report recorded nearly 50,000 unique malicious events at healthcare organizations. Additionally, networks and devices at 375 U.S.-based healthcare-related organizations were found to be compromised during this period, some of which are still compromised.  

Compromised devices included everything from radiology imaging software to firewalls, web cameras and mail servers. The most frequently compromised systems were virtual private networks (VPNs), which accounted for more than 30 percent of all compromised connected end-points detected. The size of healthcare organizations examined in the report ranged from small providers, to health plans, pharmaceutical companies and other types of medical organizations.

Although the types of organizations studied were vast, the majority of malicious traffic emanated from healthcare providers (72 percent), followed by healthcare business associates (9.9 percent), health plans (6.1 percent), pharmaceutical companies (2.9 percent), and healthcare clearinghouses (0.5 percent). Other healthcare-related entities accounted for 8.5 percent of malicious traffic.

In examining the data, Norse CEO Sam Glines said he was struck by the lack of “basic security protocols” in place at organizations on the provider side, which would have prevented the simplest of attacks.

“What I mean by that is firewalls and edge devices that were running with a default password sent by the manufacturer, and that was fairly common, as well as public-facing IP addresses and firewalls with very simple passwords. The dichotomy between the data being protected and the lack of rigor and basic security 101 that was not present for these organizations, that was the biggest surprise for us,” said Glines. “The second surprise I guess was the number of embedded devices or what we would call Internet-of-Things-type devices that were attacking our infrastructure and had been compromised. We knew there would be some, but it was significant enough to where it allowed us to conclude that CISOs today are just awash with a mass influx of new technology connected to IP addresses that might not be considered as part of the overall security architecture for an entity.”

Many in the IT security community have also raised concerns about the ability of hackers to gain access to vital medical devices. According to an article published by Forbes, one of the sessions at last year’s Black Hat conference highlighted the vulnerability of devices such as insulin pumps and pacemakers, which could potentially be accessed and manipulated by hackers.

CEO’s: Strategies for Enhancing Cyber Resilience

James Scott's insight:

The operational resiliency or cyber resilience helps a network recover rapidly and continue with its operations even when disaster strikes. Disasters come in many forms such as a malicious invasion, an accidental spilling of coffee on servers, equipment failure or even an extended power outage. Your network should rebound and continue operating even when it has been battered with totally unknown operational variables that normally would have brought the system and your company to its knees.

The best and most critical place to implement resiliency in your network is in its firewall. Implementing some strategies can help the network to stay up and continue operating even through what otherwise would have resulted in a full compromise.

The battle to maintain freedom of the web | Chatham House: Independent thinking on international affairs

The battle to maintain freedom of the web | Chatham House: Independent thinking on international affairs | Cyber Security | Scoop.it
James Scott's insight:

There is another digital revolution in the air. The NETmundial conference in Sao Paulo this April is shaping up to be the flashpoint at which the United States loses control of the internet.

Expect newspapers to be filled with nationalistic rhetoric and accusations of bad faith and Western hegemony, as international negotiations begin to decide the successor to ICANN, the US-funded and California-based Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which controls a core function of the internet.

While the debate will be a proxy for other frustrations related to the structure of the global economy, it is certain that much of the discussion of the future of ICANN, and ‘who controls the internet’, will suffer from a lack of understanding of the actual powers and responsibilities under debate.

From the rhetoric, one would be forgiven for thinking that the internet was a centralized system, run like a giant factory, with a control room somewhere in the basement of ICANN’s offices regulating the flow of information as if opening and closing electronic valves of censorship: that there was an organization somewhere somehow in charge of things.

That other organizations – governments, especially – might think like this can be forgiven. For the classically trained bureaucrat, the decentralized, haphazard collection of ‘rough consensus and running code’ that makes up the network upon which the modern world relies is painfully contradictory. Surely someone must be in charge!

To understand the issues more fully, however, requires a quick primer in the architecture of the internet. Here we go, grossly simplified: for the data moving around the internet to reach its desired destination, every single device connected to the internet needs to have an address. This is a number, called an ‘IP Address’, and today consists of four numbers each between 0 and 255, separated by dots. The Chatham House website’s server, for example, has the address of 193.164.13.110. This is a pleasingly curvaceous set of figures, but not very memorable, so to make it friendlier the internet has the Domain Name System, the DNS. The IP Address 193.164.13.110 is better known as chathamhouse.org, and anyone typing that domain name into their browser sets off a series of queries from their machine to a DNS server, asking for it to be translated back to the raw IP address. Only when that has happened can your browser then go and ask for the data you want.

With so many computers connected to the internet, and so many domain names demanded by their users, it is necessary for someone to manage the whole thing – to ensure that everyone has a fair share of the range of IP addresses that they can use for their computers, and that the DNS servers all agree on which domain names point to which IP addresses.

The key point here is that this is nothing whatsoever to do with the content of the data flowing around the internet. It is only concerned about it getting to the right place. This is analogous to the systems that allocate phone numbers. There is a specific range for your country and city (00 44 20 7 for central London, for example), but the system that assigns you that number and ensures it is yours and yours alone doesn’t care what you then say over it – just as the people who compile the Yellow Pages are not responsible for the work of the plumber you find through the directory.

Originally, the responsibility for managing this whole thing sat with the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, IANA, an organization funded by the US Department of Defence, and based at the University of Southern California.

The DoD funding reflected the historical fact that the internet has evolved out of the Arpanet, itself originally funded by the US military, but the IANA was anything but a military organization.

For the first three decades of the internet, it was run by Jon Postel, a Grand Old Man of the early internet, whose position developed by the unique qualification of him being the guy who had always done it, and that he had the good faith and reputation of someone who had written much of the technical specifications that underlie the net. (It was in the 1980 paper detailing Transmission Control Protocol, one half of the TCP/IP networking standard that the internet relies on, that Postel wrote a phrase known as Postel’s Law: ‘Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others.’ Guidance for networking engineers, but good advice for all).

By 1998, it was clear that the IANA responsibilities needed to be managed by a formal organization and the US Department of Commerce, which had taken responsibility for the internet from the Department of Defence, issued a proposal to contract the IANA function to a private sector non-profit organization. Postel died suddenly that September, soon after the IANA responsibilities were tendered out to an organization of which he was to have been a founding member: ICANN.

To this day, ICANN remains the overseer of the IANA functions. It is responsible for divvying up the available IP addresses, overseeing the domain name system, regulating the domain name registrars in each country (every country has one or more of their own to look after their country-specific domains (.uk for the UK, .fr for France, and so on), and for maintaining the stability of the overall system.

At first glance, and to much of the international community, the historical US monopoly on the IANA functions – that they remain a contract awarded by the US government to a US-based organization, yet affect the whole internet everywhere – is unsatisfactory and undemocratic and potentially open to abuse. Various proposals have been put forward over the years for moving the IANA functions to a more representative body, for example the Geneva-based UN agency, the International Telecommunications Union, but traditionally the US has opposed such a move.

It is not hard to imagine why, though the flavour of your reason may depend on your level of conspiracy theory. On the one hand, a truly democratic IANA would mean the majority of its decisions being dominated by states rather less dedicated to freedom of speech and self-expression than the US. The internet users of China and Russia far outnumber those protected by the First Amendment, and even European states, Britain included, are seeking internal powers to censor the internet within their borders. Such control over IANA functions would enable a deeper level of infrastructure to be forced into existence that would make this possible. This is both unacceptable to the US, and entirely contrary to the spirit of Postel and the other internet pioneers.

On the other hand, revelations by Edward Snowden of mass surveillance of the internet by the US National Security Agency have increased calls for the IANA functions to be ‘globalized’. For example Neelie Kroes, the European Commissioner in charge of the digital agenda, has called for a greater role for Europe, and a rapid transition to a multi-stakeholder international framework. But not, she said, based on the International Telecommunications Union: ‘Some are calling for the ITU to take control of key internet functions. I agree that governments have a crucial role to play, but top-down approaches are not the right answer. We must strengthen the multistakeholder model to preserve the internet as a fast engine for innovation.’

For its part, ICANN itself has agreed that it must be reformed. Again post-Snowden, in October 2013, the leaders of ICANN and the other major organizations responsible for the management of different parts of the internet (including the Internet Engineering Task Force, the Internet Architecture Board, the World Wide Web Consortium, and the Internet Society) issued the Montevideo statement on the future of internet cooperation. In that, they called for ‘accelerating the globalization of ICANN and IANA functions, towards an environment in which all stakeholders, including all governments, participate on an equal footing’ while also noting ‘strong concern over the undermining of the trust and confidence of internet users globally due to recent revelations of pervasive monitoring and surveillance’.

This, casually speaking, is the problem facing the internet community. ICANN’s contract is running out and it would be very bad form for the US to unilaterally decide to renew it without changing the structure of the arrangement. Especially since Snowden, the rest of the world will not stand for a US-dominated IANA structure, even if the First Amendment explicitly prohibits the US government from doing anything that might restrict freedom of speech, because the same US government has been shown to be using the internet as a tool of mass surveillance.

The IANA functions are technically nothing to do with surveillance. The snoopers at the US National Security Agency won’t care who runs the DNS either way. What has changed is that the US has lost the moral high ground.

On the other hand, truly international internet governance could be dominated by states that themselves would find a free internet quite problematic. China, for example, might object to any domain name containing the word ‘Tibet’ being owned by the Free Tibet movement.

It is clear that any alternative arrangement would need to have both freedom of speech and freedom from political interference enshrined in its charter, and be financially independent of any single nation. It could be funded at arm’s length, for example, by the ITU, but it should not be subject to any outside pressure other than a legal requirement to abide by its constitution.

Over the coming months these issues will be thrashed out in a series of meetings that promise to be more delicate than necessary. Regardless of the technical facts, the idea of governance invokes the idea of power, and no one wants to lose power, or others to gain it freely.

The Brazil summit, and further talks later this year, will be dominated by these primal desires to gain influence, even if the calls for it come from people who don’t know what they’re asking for. Such is the moral fallout if a state, such as the US, breaks Postel’s Law.

James Scott's insight:

What Is Shoulder Surfing?

Sneakily watching over a person’s shoulder as they type can reveal sensitive information, usually the username and password. However, not many know there is a ‘listening’ aspect to the act as well. Listening to the buttons clicking can be used to distinguish the password the user is typing in, when each button outputs an audio frequency when pressed. In the case of the XBox 360, each button outputs a unique audio frequency. Someone listening in can discern and translate, thereby potentially cracking the user’s password.

The Art of War Sun Tsu Full Documentary. (Educational). - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
James Scott's insight:

The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise that is attributed to Sun Tzu (also referred to as "Sunzi" and "Sun Wu"), a high ranking military general and strategist during the late Spring and Autumn period (some scholars believe that the Art of War was not completed until the subsequent Warring States period. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it is said to be the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time, and is still read for its military insights.
The Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics: "for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name.It has had an influence on Eastern military thinking, business 
tactics, and beyond.

Sun Tzu emphasized the importance of positioning in military strategy, and that the decision to position an army must be based on both objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective beliefs of other, competitive actors in that environment. He thought that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through an established list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a changing environment, competing plans collide, creating unexpected situations.
