France increases spending on equipment, cyber defence

France's 2018 defence budget includes increases in funding of new equipment, cyber defence, and research and development (R&D), a member of the National Assembly has said. Speaking during technology demonstrations at Nexter in Versailles, part of his election district, on 17 October, Didier Baichere, member of the assembly's national defence committee, said the EUR34.2 billion (USD40.2 billion) defence budget allocates EUR18.5 billion for equipment, a 7% increase over the EUR17.3 billion in 2017. It also includes EUR4.67 billion for R&D and EUR720 million for studies, "financing demonstrators for technological breakthroughs, and, more broadly, budgetary support of the ground defence industrial and technological base".

China accused of being behind recent cyber attack on Scottish Parliament

China accused of being behind recent cyber attack on Scottish Parliament | DISE | Scoop.it

CHINA has been accused of being behind the recent cyber attack on the Scottish Parliament by senior Holyrood figures. What was described as a 'brute force' attack last month caused days of disruption, just weeks after a similar attack on email accounts at Westminster. Senior Holyrood sources told the Sunday Herald that China, which is estimated to have a “hacker army” of up to 100,000 people, is suspected of being behind the attack. Experts suggest that 'hack attacks' of this sort can be a “test” designed to learn about foreign governments' IT security systems.

EU Defense Ministers Put to Test in Mock Cyberattack | SecurityWeek.Com

EU Defense Ministers Put to Test in Mock Cyberattack | SecurityWeek.Com | DISE | Scoop.it

A major cyberattack targets European Union military structures, with hackers using social media and "fake news" to spread confusion, and governments are left scrambling to respond as the crisis escalates. This was the scenario facing a gathering of EU defence ministers in Tallinn on Thursday as they undertook a exercise simulating a cyber assault on the bloc -- the first mock drill of its kind at such a senior level in Europe. With countries around the world heavily reliant on computers for everything from defence systems to hospital equipment to critical infrastructure such as power stations, the cybersphere is seen as the next major theatre for conflict. NATO now considers cyberspace to be a conflict domain alongside that of air, sea and land.

Mystery surrounds malware attack that forced German state parliament offline

Mystery surrounds malware attack that forced German state parliament offline | DISE | Scoop.it

According to media reports, a malware attack has managed to disrupt the operations of parliamentary business in the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. The problem at the Saxony-Anhalt Landtag appears to have started after a state parliament employee opened a malicious email attachment on Wednesday that proceeded to infect their PC. The computer network of the parliament in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt is said to have been “crippled”, as employees and representatives have been told by the IT team to take their PCs and phones offline as a “contingency measure”. Deutsche Welle describes the malware as a strain of ransomware, which – if true – might explain why the rest of the network has been taken offline as a precaution.

U.S. Government Cybersecurity Ranks 16th Out of 18 Industry Sectors | SecurityWeek.Com

U.S. Government Cybersecurity Ranks 16th Out of 18 Industry Sectors | SecurityWeek.Com | DISE | Scoop.it

The U.S. state and federal government's cybersecurity standing is ranked 16th of 18 industry sectors in a new report. This is a very small improvement on last year's comparable position, which was 18th out of 18; but it still paints a grim picture of public sector readiness to fight cybercrime and cyber espionage. The 2017 U.S. State and Federal Government Cybersecurity report (PDF) was just published by SecurityScorecard, a firm that seeks to help business manage third- and fourth-party risk (the supply chain). It does this by collecting and analyzing subject data through its own data engine, ThreatMarket -- which uses 10 categories such as web applications, network security, DNS health, patching cadence and what it calls 'hacker chatter'. SecurityScorecard is based in New York. It was founded in 2013, and raised $12.5 in Series A funding led by Sequoia Capital in 2015. Its stated mission is "to empower every organization with collaborative security intelligence."

NATO’s cyber security hampered by old-style cost models and acquisition delays

Officials at the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA), the alliance’s cyber and information and communications technology (ICT) procurement wing, say they intend to push down the cost of NATO’s contracted cyber security products and services by, among other things, targeting the operations and maintenance (O&M) side to cyber security and shifting more of NATO’s ICT functions to the cloud. “NATO’s current multi-year cyber security contracts [with industry] entail low capital expenditure but high operational cost,” Ian West, NCIA’s cyber security chief, told NATO’s annual cyber security conference in Mons, Belgium, on 18 October. “Why is this? Because the mode for industry is to go in low [on multi-year product or service offers] and make the profit on O&M.”

Hackers Can Remotely Access Syringe Infusion Pumps to Deliver Fatal Overdoses

Hackers Can Remotely Access Syringe Infusion Pumps to Deliver Fatal Overdoses | DISE | Scoop.it
Internet-of-things are turning every industry into the computer industry, making customers think that their lives would be much easier with smart devices. However, such devices could potentially be compromised by hackers. There are, of course, some really good reasons to connect certain devices to the Internet. But does everything need to be connected? Of course, not—especially when it comes to medical devices. Medical devices are increasingly found vulnerable to hacking. Earlier this month, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled 465,000 pacemakers after they were found vulnerable to hackers. Now, it turns out that a syringe infusion pump used in acute care settings could be remotely accessed and manipulated by hackers to impact the intended operation of the device, ICS-CERT warned in an advisory issued on Thursday.

U.S. Warship Collisions Raise Cyberattack Fears | SecurityWeek.Com

U.S. Warship Collisions Raise Cyberattack Fears | SecurityWeek.Com | DISE | Scoop.it

A spate of incidents involving US warships in Asia, including a deadly collision this week off Singapore, has forced the navy to consider whether cyberattackers might be to blame. While some experts believe that being able to engineer such a collision would be unlikely, given the security systems of the US Navy and the logistics of having two ships converge, others say putting the recent incidents down to human error and coincidence is an equally unsatisfactory explanation. The USS John S. McCain collided with a tanker early Monday as the warship was on its way for a routine stop in the city-state, tearing a huge hole in the hull and leaving 10 sailors missing and five injured. The Navy announced Tuesday that remains of some of the sailors were found by divers in flooded compartments on the ship. The Chief of US Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson said on Monday he could not rule out some kind of outside interference or a cyberattack being behind the latest collision, but said he did not want to prejudge the inquiry. His broader remarks suggested a focus on "how we do business on the bridge".

North Korea Accused of Stealing Bitcoin to Bolster Finances | SecurityWeek.Com

North Korea Accused of Stealing Bitcoin to Bolster Finances | SecurityWeek.Com | DISE | Scoop.it

North Korea (DPRK) appears to be targeting bitcoin (both users and exchanges) as a means to counter the increasing effect of international sanctions. Earlier this month the UN Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions targeting the country's primary exports. Dwindling coal exports to China will be particularly severe, and DPRK's export revenues will likely be slashed by $1 billion. Recent cyber-attacks against South Korean bitcoin exchanges are now being blamed on North Korea. Radio Free Asia (RFA) -- a non-profit East Asian News Agency -- has reported that DPRK has already launched three cyber-attacks on bitcoin exchanges in South Korea, and one in Europe. Details, including timings, are sparse -- so it is quite possible that the July hack of a Bithumb employee is included, and here attributed to North Korea.

North Korea Denies Role in Global Cyberattack | SecurityWeek.Com

North Korea Denies Role in Global Cyberattack | SecurityWeek.Com | DISE | Scoop.it

North Korea on Friday angrily dismissed reports linking its isolated regime to the global cyberattack that held thousands of computers to virtual ransom. Up to 300,000 computers in 150 countries were hit by the WannaCry worm, which seizes systems and demands payment in Bitcoin to return control to users. The code used in the latest attack is similar to that used in past hacks blamed on Kim Jong-Un's regime, leading some to point the finger at Pyongyang. But the North has now denied the claims, notably but not exclusively advanced by South Korean experts, and hit back Friday to accuse its opponents of spreading propaganda. "It is ridiculous," Kim In-Ryong, North Korea's deputy ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters, suggesting Washington and Seoul were behind the allegation.
