The Dirty Dozen Spampionship: Who's who in the global spam-sending league?

The Dirty Dozen Spampionship: Who's who in the global spam-sending league? | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it
It's once again time for our quarterly Spampionship charts.

We looked at the sending countries for all our spam in the first three months of 2014, and turned the figures into a League Table - the sort of league you don't want to win!...


That's because cybercrooks don't send their own spam: that would be expensive, and easy to track, and would point the finger of law enforcement right back at them.

Instead, the crooks co-opt innocent third parties - like you and me, or our friends and family - to send spam for them.

The criminals use malware-infected computers as remote control "spam robots," better known as bots or zombies, to churn out unwanted and illegal emails on their behalf.

You end up paying for the bandwidth, carrying the risk, and contributing to your country's standing in the Spampionship.

The Future of the Internet of Things [infographic]

The Future of the Internet of Things [infographic] | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it

Ever wonder why Google is installing extreamly fast gigabit internet infrastructure when the average person needs 200x less speed? It is because of the future of the Internet of Things. In less than 10 years, the internet will not just be for your phone or laptop, everything will be online.

I’m talking about your car, fridge, tv, blender, air conditioner, front door, and even your wallet. This inevitable future is why google is starting today with affordable gigabit internet. This new wave of device overload will open up revenue and advertising streams to a whole new level.

Today’s infographic states that in 2020, every human being on earth will be connected to 10 separate devices.

I know I’m already using five and I bet one of the most prominent technology coming up soon will be wearable tech. If its for exercising, sports, general information or just making phone calls, wearable tech will be an exciting addition today’s digital arsenal.

Quick! Where were you last Tuesday at 6:35 PM? If you’re anything like me, your answer is probably along the lines of “I… have absolutely no idea.”..

 

But odds are, Google knows. They probably know where you’ve been most other days, too. And they’ll happily show you, letting you relive your life one step at a time.

 

If you carry any Google-filled gear (like, say, an Android phone or tablet), there was a prompt during the initial setup that asked if Google could transmit your location data back to the mothership. This is that data. You know how Google Now can auto-magically figure out where you work and warn you about traffic?

 

This is the data that makes that possible (or at least a good chunk of it.)

Chaos Computer Club breaks Apple TouchID | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it

 

The biometrics hacking team of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) has successfully bypassed the biometric security of Apple's TouchID using easy everyday means. A fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID.

 

This demonstrates – again – that fingerprint biometrics is unsuitable as access control method and should be avoided.

#Ransomware 101: FAQ for computer and #smartphone owners

#Ransomware 101: FAQ for computer and #smartphone owners | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it

What is ransomware?
Ransomware is the generic term for any malicious software that, as its name suggests, demands a ransom be paid by the computer’s user.

Why would you want to pay a ransom?
Because the ransomware has done something unpleasant to your computer, and potentially to your data.

.

For instance, it might have encrypted your documents and demanded that you pay a ransom to unlock access to them. This type of ransomware is known as a filecoder.

.

The most notorious filecoder is Cryptolocker. (Numerous versions of this are detected by ESET antivirus products as Win32/Filecoder).

.

Read our FAQ to become more clued-up about the ransomware threat, and ensure that your systems are properly protected.

.

#Metadata is surveillance: my online metadata actually reveals where I’ve been | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it
In an attempt to simulate the NSA's capability, Ars tracks its own editor for 11 days.


“Facebook knows if you hit any page that has a Like button it,” he said. “Same with TweetThis, unless the site goes out of the way to mask them, then these are specifically reporting them to social networks. This is why NSA loves it, is because they can go along for the ride.

.

“One thing that we know that the NSA does on their non-US wiretaps is bind usernames to cookies so if you see a request for LinkedIn or YouTube or Yahoo, these are all sites that have user ID in the clear, all you need to do is see a request, and say I don't know who this is or I know who this is, but then you look at the HTML body and look for the username. This is why the NSA went after Google ad networks, include user identification [broadcast] in the clear: ‘I am person X at this location.’

.

Despite the vast amount of data, it's just as easy to store as it is to interpret. “It works out to only a few kilobytes per person for everyone on the planet,” Weaver added. In other words, if I had the access, it'd cost just a few thousand dollars to have enough consumer-grade storage to keep data on everyone in the United States. It would comfortably fit on my desk.

Java-based malware driving DDoS botnet infects Windows, Mac, Linux devices

Java-based malware driving DDoS botnet infects Windows, Mac, Linux devices | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it
Multi-platform threat exploits old Java flaw, gains persistence.

 

Researchers have uncovered a piece of botnet malware that is capable of infecting computers running Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux that have Oracle's Java software framework installed.

 

The cross-platform HEUR:Backdoor.Java.Agent.a, as reported in a blog post published Tuesday by Kaspersky Lab, takes hold of computers by exploiting CVE-2013-2465, a critical Java vulnerability that Oracle patched in June. The security bug is present on Java 7 u21 and earlier. Once the bot has infected a computer, it copies itself to the autostart directory of its respective platform to ensure it runs whenever the machine is turned on.

 

Compromised computers then report to an Internet relay chat channel that acts as a command and control server.

Scammers in a Wi-Fi Wonderland | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry—you’d better not use that public Wi-Fi. The holiday season is upon us and in addition to more flash sales, baked goods, and travel time—this meansmore online scams. A recent survey of American travelers revealed that the majority of us are not taking measures to protect ourselves when using public Wi-Fi. Numerous forms of malware can be delivered over unsecured connections, so when traveling for the holidays you’re more vulnerable than ever to a cyber break in.

 

That’s why on the road, in the air, or otherwise on the go this holiday season, it’s more important than ever that you watch where you connect.

* When BYODs bypass inbound filters normally applied to corporate devices, they’re vulnerable to malware
