Ransomware, bogus emails from your ‘boss’ mark growing skill of cyber-criminals

Cyber-criminals are hacking into corporate computer systems and using the public profiles of top executives to fine-tune email scams that are duping Canadians out of hundreds of millions of dollars each year, a CBC News investigation has discovered. “It came on the scene in a massive way, from virtually nothing to $19 million in 2014” in losses reported, said Daniel Williams of the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, a federal government agency. He also says that research by the CAFC and police suggests that less than three per cent of these email scams ever gets reported, meaning the incidents and the losses are probably much higher. “Most probably in the range of $500 million to $1 billion,” Williams says. “It’s big, big money. It’s very organized, very sophisticated crime groups with a lot of resources putting a lot of effort … really on an industrial scale.” Source: http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/ransomware-cyber-scams-bogus-emails-1.3314221

Australian dad posed as crime boss to find his late son’s illegal drug suppliers

An Australian father whose only son died while under the influence of a synthetic recreational drug has infiltrated the Chinese criminal gangs exporting the substances to our shores.

Rod Bridge’s son Preston died in February 2013, after leaping from a Perth balcony while on the synthetic drug, 25i-NBOMe.

It is believed the 16-year-old was under the impression he could fly before he plunged to his death.

“The hallucination for some reason caused him to think he could fly or jump.

“Witnesses have come forward and said he didn’t just fall off a balcony, he ran.”

One hit of 25i-NBOMe is the size of six grains of salt and is up to 60 times more potent than LSD.
