cyber criminals Reports Say Russians Hacked Irs Identities Posted By: Robert Siciliano CNN recently reported that the data breach of the IRS, which occurred between this past February and May, originated from Russia. The crooks were able to steal tax returns from over 100,000 people. The thieves filed a total of $50 million in tax refunds, having obtained personal data to get ahold of the data. In other words, this crime wasn AND rsquo;t a hacking job. The Russians didn AND rsquo;t hack into the IRS AND rsquo;s network through some AND ldquo;back door AND rdquo; or social engineering scheme. They actually entered through the front door, using the personal data they had obtained. Just how the breach came about is not yet known. The IRS AND rsquo;s Criminal Investigation Unit, plus the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, are trying to figure it all out. The FBI is also involved. Americans have no reason to feel secure about the protection of their tax data. For years, there have been security concerns by the leaders, and this latest Russian incident has fueled the flames. Orrin Hatch, the Republican Senate Finance Committee Chairman, has stated: AND ldquo;When the federal government fails to protect private and confidential taxpayer information, Congress must act.

CEH-001 Coaching Kits How Hackers Use Linkedin To Scam Posted By: Robert Siciliano Hackers love LinkedIn because it links them in AND mdash;straight through the portal of the targeted company. Geez, how much easier could this be, what with all the publically-exposed e-mail addresses of key players (and also worker bees) in big companies that someone wants to hack. An article on blog.sungardas.com was written by a white-hatter (his job is to try to hack his clients AND rsquo; systems so that they know how to make them more impenetrable to the bad guys). The author says he AND rsquo;d make a beeline to LinkedIn if he became a black-hatter. In addition to all of those revealed e-mail addresses, the hacker could also learn (without hacking, of course) what a business AND rsquo;s e-mail structure is. He can then compile a list of employees for his social engineering attacks. (Can you just see him watering at the mouth over this AND mdash;like putting a sizzling steak in front of a dog.) A phishing campaign could trick the targets into giving up crucial information AND mdash;essentially handing the company key to the hacker. The crook, however, knows better than to pull this stunt on IT employees.

And the chief way that the cybercriminals do this is via AND nbsp;phishing AND nbsp;scams AND mdash;that are designed to take your money. The fact that two-thirds of all the emails out there on this planet are phishy tells me that there AND rsquo;s a heck of a lot of people out there who are easily duped into giving over their money. I AND rsquo;m riled because many of these emails (we all get them) scream AND ldquo;SCAM! AND rdquo; because their subject lines are so ridiculous, not to mention the story of some befallen prince that AND rsquo;s in the message I bet there AND rsquo;s a dozen phishing emails sitting in your junk folder right now. Unfortunately, a lot of these scam emails find their way into your inbox as well. McAfee Labs AND trade; has declared that there AND rsquo;s over 30 million URLS that may be of a malicious nature. Malicious websites are often associated with scammy emails AND mdash;the email message lures you into clicking on a link to the phony website.

CEH-001 training material Very Effective Social Engineering Scams Posted By: Robert Siciliano It AND rsquo;s amazing how ingenious cybercriminals are, but the victims also need to take some responsibility for falling for these ruses, especially when the victim is a business that has failed to train its employees in cybersecurity measures. Ransomware The stuff of science fiction is here: Who would have ever thought there AND rsquo;d ever be a such thing as criminals remotely stealing someone AND rsquo;s personal information (word processing files, any kind of image, etc.), scrambling it up via encryption, then demanding ransom in exchange for the remote AND ldquo;key AND rdquo; to AND ldquo;unlock AND rdquo; the encryption? Payment is remotely by Bitcoin which can AND rsquo;t be traced. The payment is usually at least $500 and escalates the longer the victim waits. The virus that poisons a computer to steal someone AND rsquo;s files is called ransomware, a type of malicious software (in this case, AND ldquo;Cryptolocker AND rdquo; and AND ldquo;CryptoDefense AND rdquo;). But how does this virus get into your computer in the first place? It AND rsquo;s called social engineering: tricking users into allowing their computer to be infected, or duping them into revealing personal information. Often, a phishing e-mail is used: It has an attention-getting subject line that entices the user to open it.

Cloud Computing Solutions Mobile Employees Are A Security Risk Posted By: Robert Siciliano Not too long ago, the office computer filled an entire room. Now, it fills the palms of one-third of employees AND mdash;those workers who use only the mobile device for their jobs. Security, however, lags behind in keeping up with this growing trend. This is the BYOD generation: bring your own device (to work). IT departments need to keep one step ahead of this fast-growing trend. It AND rsquo;s here to stay, and one reason is because it AND rsquo;s responsible for significantly pumping up productivity. Employers love this. More productivity = higher profits. You AND rsquo;d think that some of these increased profits would be reinvested in security training that correlates to the BYOD movement, since the BYOD movement strongly correlates with an increase in data breaches and risks of breaches. But it AND rsquo;s not. Organizations still aren AND rsquo;t seeing the light. A recent Ponemon Institute survey reveals that for a large portion of employees, the mobile device is a first-line medium for conducting business. That one-third figure mentioned earlier is forecasted to jump to 50 percent over the next 12 months. With all the improvements in productivity comes a corresponding jump in the risks of data breaches AND mdash;both intentional and accidental.
