EU Cyber Alert: Joint action day targets counterfeiters on the Darknet

EU Cyber Alert: Joint action day targets counterfeiters on the Darknet | New Technologies in Law Enforcement | Scoop.it
A joint action day carried out by seven EU Member States and coordinated by Europol has resulted in the arrest of 53 criminals active on the Darknet. The arrestees were involved in buying and/or selling counterfeit euro banknotes on illegal Darknet marketplaces, such as AlphaBay and Hansa Market. In February 2017, Austrian authorities dismantled an illegal euro banknote print shop in Vienna and arrested one person. The data retrieved from this operation mainly related to illegal euro banknote counterfeiting on the Darknet. Among the documents seized, investigators found details of 33 different European and non-European countries to which the arrested person had sent counterfeit money.

Hackers Have Already Started to Weaponize Artificial Intelligence

Hackers Have Already Started to Weaponize Artificial Intelligence | New Technologies in Law Enforcement | Scoop.it
Last year, two data scientists from security firm ZeroFOX conducted an experiment to see who was better at getting Twitter users to click on malicious links, humans or an artificial intelligence. The researchers taught an AI to study the behavior of social network users, and then design and implement its own phishing bait. In tests, the artificial hacker was substantially better than its human competitors, composing and distributing more phishing tweets than humans, and with a substantially better conversion rate.

Our technology is now being used against us by the machines we built to help us. Tests show that AI-directed hacking programs are more effective and efficient than human hackers.  Get ready for singularity.

Last year, two data scientists from security firm ZeroFOX conducted an experiment to see who was better at getting Twitter users to click on malicious links, humans or an artificial intelligence. The researchers taught an AI to study the behavior of social network users, and then design and implement its own phishing bait. In tests, the artificial hacker was substantially better than its human competitors, composing and distributing more phishing tweets than humans, and with a substantially better conversion rate.  The AI, named SNAP_R, sent simulated spear-phishing tweets to over 800 users at a rate of 6.75 tweets per minute, luring 275 victims. By  contrast,  Forbes staff writer Thomas Fox-Brewster, who participated in the experiment, was only able to pump out 1.075 tweets a minute, making just 129 attempts and luring in just 49 users.

EU Crime Alert: Intellectual property crime: counterfeit goods increasingly sold on Darknet marketplaces

EU Crime Alert: Intellectual property crime: counterfeit goods increasingly sold on Darknet marketplaces | New Technologies in Law Enforcement | Scoop.it
Darknet markets are becoming increasingly attractive for both criminals vendors and buyers of intellectual property (IP) infringing material as they allow for anonymity, a poly-criminal environment and high profits. In addition, certain measures taken on the surface web against IP crime, such as frequent monitoring of online marketplaces, may prompt criminals to move the trade into the Darknet. Illicit goods, including counterfeit goods, will continue to be distributed via parcel and postal services; however, the concealment and shipment methods may become more sophisticated to increase anonymity and avoid detections.

EU DataProtection Alert: Privacy International: 21 EU member states violate the e-privacy directive

EU DataProtection Alert: Privacy International: 21 EU member states violate the e-privacy directive | New Technologies in Law Enforcement | Scoop.it

Phone companies in Europe retain vast amounts of data on the “who,” “what,” “when,” and “where” we communicate. At once, someone with access to this information can know an individuals’ location, age, gender, racial profile, sexual orientation, financial situation, health condition, and belief system. This amount of data is illegal for the state to demand and for companies to keep, according to a report by Privacy International (PI). The report suggests that 21 EU member states unlawfully retain citizens’ personal data, violating the e-privacy directive and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.


These states are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The remaining seven member states were not reviewed, which could mean that no EU member state data retention regime in the EU respects individual privacy.
