Not All Hacks Are Created Equal

Hacks, breaches and security intrusions are in the headlines on a day-to-day basis, but these hacks aren’t all created equal. According to new analysis from HackerOne, the kind of intrusion differs by industry and breach type.

The Hacker-Powered Security Report 2018 compiled comprehensive analysis on the hacker-powered security environment, including a deep dive into different types of hacks across a wide variety of industries. The report also looked at the prevalence of each attack and found that cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities were the most common across every industry.

The report data was derived from the hacker community and from HackerOne’s platform data from May 2017 to April 2018. The company analyzed 78,275 of the security vulnerability reports it received in 2017. It’s worth noting that ethical hackers reported those vulnerabilities to over 1,000 organizations through HackerOne.

The total number of critical vulnerabilities reported increased by 26% over 2017. There were 38 times more insecure storage vulnerabilities reported in 2017 than in 2016. Many of these insecure storage vulnerabilities resulted in major breaches.

For healthcare and technology industries, of the top 15 vulnerability types reported, nearly 8,000 were related to information disclosure. The results of the analysis suggested that organizations are “vastly underprepared for effective discovery, communication, remediation and disclosure of vulnerabilities as 93% of the Forbes Global 2000 list do not have a policy to receive, respond and resolve critical bug reports submitted by the outside world. It means we are less safe as a society.”

In contrast, the analysis suggests that hackers and enterprises have much reason to be optimistic. The potential to earn a living as a hacker has grown substantially, with hackers in over 100 countries taking home $31m. Top earners brought home 2.7 times the median salary of a software engineer in their home country, with some reportedly earning up to 16 times more.

Other key findings that bode well for hackers is that governments are paving the way for widespread adoption of bug bounty programs and many enterprises are adopting vulnerability disclosure policies (VDPs).

“Latin America had the largest uptake of VDPs and bug bounty programs, with an increase of 143% year over year. North America and the Asia Pacific region each increased 37%, and Europe, the Middle East, and Africa saw a combined 26% increase in the past year,” the report wrote.

Cyber threats are on the rise in Singapore, mirroring global trends

In 2017, the global cyber landscape continued to evolve. Cyber threats continued to grow in frequency and impact. Notably, there was a shift from profit-motivated attacks towards those aimed at causing massive disruptions, such as the WannaCry ransomware campaign.

As a highly-connected country, Singapore’s cyber landscape mirrored these global trends, according to the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore’s (CSA) “Singapore Cyber Landscape 2017” publication, which highlights facts and figures on cyber threats that Singapore faced in 2017, as well as the need to build up cyber resilience.

Common cyber threats such as phishing, website defacements, and malware infections also showed no signs of abating in 2017.

  • Website Defacements. 2,040 website defacements were observed in 2017. Many defacements were part of global mass defacement campaigns. The defaced websites belonged mostly to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) from a range of sectors such as manufacturing, retail, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
  • Phishing. 23,420 phishing URLs[2] with a Singapore-link were found in 2017. Phishing emails are one of the simplest and most effective methods that hackers use to steal sensitive personal data (e.g. passwords, contact information, credit card details), by tricking users into opening dubious links or attachments. The websites of technology companies such as Apple and Microsoft were commonly spoofed, making up about 40 per cent of the observed phishing
  • Malware Infections.   
    • Compromised Systems. In 2017, CSA observed about 750 unique Command & Control (C&C) servers in Singapore, and a daily average of about 2,700 botnet drones with Singapore IP addresses. Of the more than 400 malware variants detected in 2017, five were observed to have caused the majority of the infections. Conficker, Mirai, Cutwail, Sality, and WannaCry accounted for more than half of the systems infected daily. The majority of these malware are not new, suggesting that many victims are not scanning for viruses and cleaning up their systems.
    • Ransomware. Singapore was relatively unscathed by major ransomware campaigns such as WannaCry. 25 cases of ransomware were reported to SingCERT in 2017. Besides WannaCry, victims were infected by ransomware such as CerberDharma, and Sage, and faced ransom demands ranging between S$2,000 and S$4,000.

Cybercrime on the Rise

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) reported that cybercrime continued to rise in 2017, with 5,430 cybercrime cases reported. Between 2016 and 2017, cybercrime cases grew from 15.6 per cent to 16.6 per cent of total crimes, even as overall crime fell.

Online cheating accounted for the majority of cybercrime cases, with other cases involving compromised social media and SingPass accounts, impersonation scams, ransomware and unauthorised access. These are offences under the Computer Misuse and Cybersecurity Act. Singapore’s first conviction of a Dark Web-related crime took place in November 2017.

Cyber Threats Singapore Faces

Threats to Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) Sectors. CII sectors deliver essential services and a compromise of their systems can have a debilitating impact on Singapore’s society and economy. CII sectors such as Banking & Finance and Government remain prime targets for cyber-attacks, because of the sensitive information held by organisations in these sectors. In September 2017, the website of a Singapore insurance company was breached, compromising the personal data of 5,400 customers, including their e-mail addresses, mobile numbers and dates of birth. Government agencies also faced a range of cyber threats, including system intrusions and spoofed websites. To better protect Government systems and citizens’ data, Government agencies separated Internet surfing from Government networks in 2017.

Threats to Businesses. Businesses are common targets of cyber-attacks. SMEs are especially vulnerable, as they often lack the resources or know-how to adopt appropriate cybersecurity practices.  Almost 40 per cent of the 146 cases reported to SingCERT in 2017 involved businesses, particularly SMEs, and most of the cases involved phishing attacks and ransomware. Businesses are encouraged to invest in cybersecurity solutions to protect themselves from cyber-attacks.

Threats to Individuals. The three most common cyber threats reported to SingCERT by individuals were phishing, ransomware and tech support scams. A public awareness survey of 2,035 respondents conducted by CSA in 2017 showed that most respondents recognised that everyone had a role to play in cybersecurity, and were concerned about cybersecurity risks. However, there were still gaps in habits when it came to password management and updating of software. To encourage adoption of good cybersecurity practices, the publication highlights four cyber tips o help readers go safe online.

Building up Singapores Cyber Resilience

A cyber-attack is inevitable. When it happens, it is important that Singapore is able to respond and recover expediently. CSA works closely with partners from the public and private sectors to build up Singapore’s cyber resilience. Efforts include the introduction of the new Cybersecurity Act to strengthen the protection of CII sectors, conducting regular cybersecurity exercises to raise CII sector readiness in responding and dealing with cyber incidents, as well as initiatives to develop a professional cybersecurity workforce.

CSA also reaches out to businesses and individuals to raise cybersecurity awareness and adoption through campaigns and platforms such as GoSafeOnline, SingCERT website and social media channels. Other efforts include the push for cybersecurity research and development to accelerate the growth of the industry to support Smart Nation initiatives.  CSA also collaborates with international partners to build cyber capacity and drive the adoption of voluntary cyber norms for a “rules-based” international order in cyberspace.

David Koh, Commissioner of Cybersecurity and Chief Executive of CSA, said, “Given Singapore’s connectivity, what happens globally is often immediately felt here. As we continue our Smart Nation push, we have to raise our cyber hygiene and defences, especially against cyber-attackers who are getting better resourced and skilled. We need to play our part by being vigilant and adopting good cybersecurity practices to keep Singapore’s cyberspace safe and trustworthy for all.”

THE WORST CYBERSECURITY BREACHES OF 2018 SO FAR

LOOKING BACK AT the first six months of 2018, there haven’t been as many government leaks and global ransomware attacks as there were by this time last year, but that’s pretty much where the good news ends. Corporate security isn’t getting better fast enough, critical infrastructure security hangs in the balance, and state-backed hackers from around the world are getting bolder and more sophisticated.

Here are the big digital security dramas that have played out so far this year—and it’s only half over.

Russian Grid Hacking

In 2017, security researchers sounded the alarm about Russian hackers infiltrating and probing United States power companies; there was even evidence that the actors had direct access to an American utility’s control systems. Combined with other high-profile Russian hacking from 2017, like the NotPetya ransomware attacks, the grid penetrations were a sobering revelation. It wasn’t until this year, though, that the US government began publicly acknowledging the Russian state’s involvement in these actions. Officials hinted at it for months, before the Trump Administration first publicly attributed the NotPetya malware to Russia in February and then blamed Russia in March for grid hacking. Though these attributions were already widely assumed, the White House’s public acknowledgement is a key step as both the government and private sector grapple with how to respond. And while the state-sponsored hacking field is getting scarier by the day, you can use WIRED’s grid-hacking guide to gauge when you should really freak out.

US Universities

In March, the Department of Justice indicted nine Iranian hackers over an alleged spree of attacks on more than 300 universities in the United States and abroad. The suspects are charged with infiltrating 144 US universities, 176 universities in 21 other countries, 47 private companies, and other targets like the United Nations, the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the states of Hawaii and Indiana. The DOJ says the hackers stole 31 terabytes of data, estimated to be worth $3 billion in intellectual property. The attacks used carefully crafted spearphishing emails to trick professors and other university affiliates into clicking on malicious links and entering their network login credentials. Of 100,000 accounts hackers targeted, they were able to gain credentials for about 8,000, with 3,768 of those at US institutions. The DOJ says the campaign traces back to a Tehran-based hacker clearinghouse called the Mabna Institute, which was founded around 2013. The organization allegedly managed hackers and had ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Tension between Iran and the US often spills into the digital sphere, and the situation has been in a particularly delicate phase recently.

Rampant Data Exposures

Data breaches have continued apace in 2018, but their quiet cousin, data exposure, has been prominent this year as well. A data exposure, as the name suggests, is when data is stored and defended improperly such that it is exposed on the open internet and could be easily accessed by anyone who comes across it. This often occurs when cloud users misconfigure a database or other storage mechanism so it requires minimal or no authentication to access. This was the case with the marketing and data aggregation firm Exactis, which left about 340 million records exposed on a publicly accessible server. The trove didn’t include Social Security numbers or credit card numbers, but it did comprise 2 terabytes of very personal information about hundreds of millions of US adults—not something you want hanging out for anyone to find. The problem was discovered by security researcher Vinny Troia and reported by WIRED in June. Exactis has since protected the data, but it is now facing a class action lawsuit over the incident.

Cloud leaks pop up regularly, but data exposures can also occur when software bugs inadvertently store data in a different format or location than intended. For example, Twitter disclosed at the beginning of May that it had been unintentionally storing some user passwords unprotected in plaintext in an internal log. The company fixed the problem as soon as it found it, but wouldn’t say how long the passwords were hanging out there.

After the revelation of a data exposure, organizations often offer the classic reassurance that there is no evidence that the data was accessed improperly. And while companies can genuinely come to this conclusion based on reviewing access logs and other indicators, the most sinister thing about data exposures is that there’s no way to know for sure what exactly went down while no one was watching.

Under Armour

Hackers breached Under Armour’s MyFitnessPal app in late February, compromising usernames, email addresses, and passwords from the app’s roughly 150 million users. The company discovered the intrusion on March 25 and disclosed it in under a week—some welcome hustle from a large company. And it seems Under Armour had done a good enough job setting up its data protections that the hackers couldn’t access valuable user information like location, credit card numbers, or birth dates, even as they were swimming in login credentials. The company had even protected the passwords it was storing by hashing them, or converting them into unintelligible strings of characters. Pretty great, right? There was one crucial issue, though: Despite doing so many things well, Under Armour admitted that it had only hashed some of the passwords using the robust function called bcrypt; the rest were protected by a weaker hashing scheme called SHA-1, which has known flaws. This means that attackers likely cracked some portion of the stolen passwords without much trouble to sell or use in other online scams. The situation, while not an all-time-worst data breach, was a frustrating reminder of the unreliable state of security on corporate networks.

One to Watch: VPNFilter

At the end of May, officials warned about a Russian hacking campaign that has impacted more than 500,000 routers worldwide. The attack spreads a type of malware, known as VPNFilter, which can be used to coordinate the infected devices to create a massive botnet. But it can also directly spy on and manipulate web activity on the compromised routers. These capabilities can be used for diverse purposes, from launching network manipulation or spam campaigns to stealing data and crafting targeted, localized attacks. VPNFilter can infect dozens of mainstream router models from companies like Netgear, TP-Link, Linksys, ASUS, D-Link, and Huawei. The FBI has been working to neuter the botnet, but researchers are still identifying the full scope and range of this attack.

Today, most users surf the web unaware of the fact that websites and online services collect their personal information, including search histories, location, and buying habits and make millions by sharing your data with advertisers and marketers.

If this is not enough, then there are governments across the world conducting mass surveillance, and hackers and cyber criminals who can easily steal sensitive data from the ill-equipped networks, websites, and PCs.

So, what’s the solution and how can you protect your privacy, defend against government surveillance and prevent malware attacks?

No matter which Internet connection you are using to go online, one of the most efficient solutions to maximize your privacy is to use a secure VPN service.

In this article, we have introduced two popular VPN services, TigerVPN and VPNSecure, which help you in many ways. But before talking about them, let’s dig deeper into what is a VPN, importance of VPN and why you should use one.

What is a VPN & Why You Should Use It?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is nothing but an encrypted tunnel between you and the Internet.

Once you connect directly to your VPN service, every Internet browsing activity of yours will go through the VPNs servers and blocks third parties, including government and your ISP, from snooping on your connection.

  • Secure and Encrypted Web Browsing: VPNs enhance online security by keeping your data secured and encrypted.
  • Online Anonymity: VPNs help you browse the Internet in complete anonymity so that no one can track the origin of your Internet connection back to you.
  • Prevent Data & Identity Theft: VPNs encrypt all data transferred between your computer and the Internet, allowing you to keep your sensitive information safe from prying eyes and significantly reducing the risk of security breaches and cyber attacks.
  • Unblock Websites & Bypass Internet Restrictions: VPN essentially hides your IP address, so your visits to any restricted sites do not register with the third-party, including your government or ISP, trying to block you, ensuring you enjoy the online freedom of speech.
  • Hide Your Browsing History From ISP: VPNs stop your ISP from logging your web visit, as the spying ISP will not be able to see what you are visiting on the Internet.
  • Multiple Device Supported: Many VPN services usually support multiple devices and work on all operating systems, such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. With multiple device support, you can set up your PC, work computer and smartphone to access one VPN at the same time.

List of Firewall appliances Company in India

In general, a computer appliance is a computing device with a specific function and limited configuration ability, and a software appliance is a set of computer programs that might be combined with just enough operating system (JeOS) for it to run optimally on industry standard computer hardware or in a virtual machine.

A firewall appliance is a combination of a firewall software and an operating system that is purposely built to run a firewall system on a dedicated hardware or virtual machine. These include:

  • embedded firewalls: very limited-capability programs running on a low-power CPU system,
  • software-based firewall appliances: a system that can be run in independent hardware or in a virtualised environment as a virtual appliance
  • hardware-based firewall appliances: a firewall appliance that runs on a hardware specifically built to install as a network device, providing enough network interfaces and CPU to serve a wide range of purposes. From protecting a small network (a few network ports and few megabits per second throughput) to protecting an enterprise-level network (tens of network ports and gigabits per second throughput).

Ex-NSO Employee Caught Selling Stolen Phone Hacking Tool For $50 Million

A former employee of one of the world’s most powerful hacking companies NSO Group has been arrested and charged with stealing phone hacking tools from the company and trying to sell it for $50 million on the Darknet secretly.

Israeli hacking firm NSO Group is mostly known for selling high-tech malware capable of remotely cracking into Apple’s iPhones and Google’s Android devices to intelligence apparatuses, militaries, and law enforcement around the world.

However, the phone hacking company has recently become the victim of an insider breach attack carried out by a 38-year-old former NSO employee, who stole the source code for the company’s most powerful spyware called Pegasus and tried to sell it for $50 million on the dark web in various cryptocurrencies, including Monero and Zcash, Israeli media reported.

That’s much higher than the actual NSO Group’s price tag for Pegasus, which reportedly sells for under $1 million per deployment.

If you remember, Pegasus is the same spyware that was used to target human rights activist Ahmed Mansoor in the United Arab Emirates in mid-2016.

Pegasus can hack mobile phones remotely, allowing an attacker to access an incredible amount of data on a target victim, including text messages, calendar entries, emails, WhatsApp messages, user’s location, microphone, and camera—all without the victim’s knowledge.

According to an indictment filed by Israel’s attorney general, which does not name the employee, the accused worked in NSO’s quality assurance department, and upon realizing that he was going to lose his job, he copied top-secret code from NSO’s networks to an external hard drive after disabling McAfee security software on his PC.

Following his dismissal on April 29, the accused contacted an unidentified individual on the darknet, representing himself as a member of a hacking crew who had successfully broken into NSO computers and attempted to sell the hard drive containing the spyware code for $50 million.

Ironically, the buyer himself in turn informed the company about their leaked hacking tools and the sale on the dark web.

NSO Group said the company quickly identified the breach and unnamed suspect and contacted the authorities, adding that no material had been shared with any third-party and that no customer data or information was compromised.

The suspect was arrested on June 5, and the stolen property was secured. He was then charged with an attempt to sell security tools without an appropriate license, employee theft, and attempt to harm property in a manner that could hurt state security.

With 500 employees and valued at $900 million, NSO Group has been in a deal worth $1 billion with US-based software company Verint Systems who’s willing to merge its security division with NSO, revealed in May this year.
