Ransomware customer service: Negotiation is always on the table

Cyberattackers running ransomware campaigns are usually willing to negotiate if it means exhorting any payment at all from victims, researchers claim. Ransomware is a particularly nasty breed of malware which, once downloaded and executed on a vulnerable system, will encrypt files and bar access to the PC. Victims are then issued with a demand for […]

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Headline grabbing hacks such as Sony and Talk Talk previously had both personal and corporate data increasingly at risk as these companies failed to keep personal information secure. Last week, hackers stole contact information of business customers of Verizon’s B2B unit, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. Verizon’s B2B unit provides cybersecurity solutions and consulting to a majority of the Fortune 500 companies. It is popular for its annual Data Breach Investigations Report, also known as DBIR in the industry. Verizon said that an attacker exploited a security vulnerability in its enterprise client portal to steal the contact information of 1.5 million enterprise customers. Verizon’s B2B unit provides cybersecurity solutions and consulting to a majority of the Fortune 500 companies. It is popular for its annual Data Breach Investigations Report, also known as DBIR in the industry. KrebsOnSecurity, which first broke this news, reported that since Verizon Enterprise reportedly works with 99 percent of Fortune 500 companies, so many of those enterprises could find themselves the victims of targeted attacks or phishing scams. The post on KrebsOnSecurity finds Verizon admitting that it had identified a security flaw that had allowed hackers to gain access to customer contact information. The company said that that […]

Godaddy didn’t helped his Hacked Customer

This is not the first time that Godaddy is being accused of no help. This time an owner of a high profile website, RamshackleGlam.com, Jordan Reid, say that GoDaddy did not help him in restoring his hijacked website in spite of several pleads. 

Jordan Reid, said. few days before, she came to know that someone with the nick of bahbouh was selling her website on flippa.com. He was demanding $30,000 (€22,000) in return for providing the domain name of the website along with all its data. 

Reid said she immediately contacted the HostMonster , the company that operated her website. They told that website is out of their control and they could not do anything. She then told flippa.com and inform them that she was the actual owner of the website. That too did not worked as they told her that she was no longer the owner of the website, after someone used the company’s email confirmation system to authorize the transfer of the domain to a private GoDaddy account. 

 It’s worth noting that Reid is also a customer of GoDaddy. She then asked GoDaddy for help, but that too in vain. GoDaddy maintained that because the account was private and the person had obtained ownership of the domain through a transfer from HostMonster, there was nothing they could do. She turned to FBI, they interviewed her but could not do anything. Finally, she phoned The Hijacker Bahbouh and broke a deal. 

She convinced him that she will pay the money after he gave him the credentials of websites. Initially he refused but later agreed and handed over the domain. Once in possession of her website she immediately called the company responsible for the fund transfer to cancel the transfer. 

Thus, she tricked the hijacker and it took her 3 days to get her website back. She is highly disappointed and displeased with GoDaddy and HostMonster.

TalkTalk today revealed that 1.2 million customer email addresses, names and phone numbers were accessed, along with around 28,000 obscured credit and debit card details, and fewer than 15,000 customer dates of birth. ‘Even though the scale of the attack is significantly smaller than initially suspected, we continue to advise customers to be vigilant, and to take all precautions possible to protect themselves from scam phone calls and emails,’ a spokesman said. Earlier, the Metropolitan Police revealed that a second boy has been arrested in connection with the alleged attack.

Sales and customer service teams ‘most vulnerable to cyber attacks’

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A report from McAfee found that the UK is one of the countries most vulnerable to risk across Europe, since one in ten UK organisations do not provide the necessary online protection training for their staff. With 82 million new suspect URLs found in 2014, staff who frequently engage with the public on a are more prone to attack. The threat is more significant since 52 per cent of UK organisations fail to train their customer service teams and 60 per cent do not train their receptionists. The number of potentially harmful URLs has increased by 87 per cent between 2013 and 2014, therefore the risk of staff without IT security training clicking on these links and leaving the company open to a cyber attack is high. The McAfee report, Dissecting the Top Five Network Attack Methods: A Thief’s Perspectivefound that there were 54.6 million network attacks in Q1 2015. The urgency for a high standard of online protection is lacking, the report finds, since 30 per cent of organisations assess their security strategy once a year. 75 per cent of UK IT professionals believe their organisations’ security strategies always consider the latest threats. 42 per cent of cyber attacks came under network and […]
