Computer-Savvy Casper Man Sentenced To 10 Years On Child Pornography Charge Read More: Computer-Savvy Casper Man Sentenced To 10 Years On Child Pornography Charge

A federal judge last week ordered a Casper man with sophisticated computer skills to 10 years of imprisonment for possession of child pornography.
U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl also ordered Kyle Steven Hebert to strict probationary terms when he is released during his sentencing hearing Thursday.
A federal grand jury indicted Hebert in February 2016, alleging he possessed child pornography from May 2012 to February 2016, according to court documents.
Hebert had previously been convicted of misdemeanor charge of sexual battery in Georgia in 2000.
He used a sophisticated method of obtaining child pornography through a program called FreeNet, which is different than the traditional peer-to-peer networks used by those to exchange pictures and videos, according to the pretrial memorandum written by Assistant U.

OpenSSL vulnerability allows hackers to read 64k of memory on target server

A potentially critical security vulnerability in OpenSSL has been discovered that allows an attacker to read up to 64kilobytes of memory from the server running a vulnerable OpenSSL version.

As a normal user, you may not aware what is OpenSSL.  It is cryptographic library which is used for encrypting communication between web server and users – used by plenty of websites including Google, Yahoo, Twitter.

The bug( CVE-2014-0160), dubbed as ‘HeartBleed‘, was independently discovered by Neel Mehta from Google Security team and Codenomicon.  The bug appropriately named HeartBleed because vulnerability is located in HeartBeat extension and it leads to memory leak.

The attacker can read only up to 64k of memory during one iteration of the attack.  However, according to Heardbleed.com, an attacker can “keep reconnecting or during an active TLS connection keep requesting arbitrary number of 64 kilobyte chunks of memory content until enough secrets are revealed”.

An attacker can retrieve the private key used for encrypting the communication that will allow to read all information passed to server and user like it wasn’t encrypted at all.

How to fix it?
If your server is using OpenSSL 1.0.1 and 1.0.1f, then better upgrade to 1.0.1g. If you are using 1.0.0 and 0.9.8, you are not vulnerable to this bug.  As a temporary fix, users can remove HeartBeat extension by recompiling OpenSSL with -DOPENSSL_NO_HEARTBEATS

Check whether Your server is vulnerable or not:
http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/” allows to find whether your server is vulnerable to this bug or not.

Details about the Bug:
TLS Heartbeat extension is to ping from one end to another end – a specific message with size of it is being sent from client to server and server responds with the same message.

But, if an attacker send a small size of data(Let’s say 1 kilo byte) and claims it’s large size(64k), then the server(running vulnerable OpenSSL) will respond with 1 kilo byte of attacker’s data + 63 kilobytes of data read from memory of the server.

NSA spying: judge tosses out case because Wikipedia isn’t widely read enough

Wikipedia’s parent org — has had its case against the NSA dismissed by a Federal judge who said that the mere fact that the site is one of the most popular destinations on the net was not a basis for assuming that the NSA had intercepted data between Wikipedia and its users. US District Judge T.S. Ellis III wrote “plaintiffs insist that Wikipedia’s over one trillion annual Internet communications is significant in volume… but size is always relative. For example, one trillion dollars are of enormous value, whereas one trillion grains of sand are but a small patch of beach.” The ACLU represented Wikimedia in court, and its analysis points out glaring errors in the judge’s reasoning. Previous cases of this nature were dismissed because there wasn’t enough information about the nuts and bolts of NSA mass surveillance in the public domain, but since the Snowden revelations, we’ve learned a lot more about “upstream” surveillance, which is the NSA’s cute term for tapping into the fiber-optic backbones that carry most of the Internet traffic in the world. At present, there’s nothing in the ACLU’s materials about an appeal, but it seems likely that they’ll try it. All the NSA mass […]

Expert hacker: Hillary doesn’t know who read her personal email

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

At a press conference on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton tried to assure the public that there were “no security breaches” on the private server she used to send and receive emails during her time as secretary of state. But cyber experts are saying that there is no way she could know whether her account was ever compromised by hackers, who constantly attempt to detect security holes in email servers and stealthily exploit them. “There have been times when I’ve hacked into a customer’s server, collected data, and gotten out, and the customer never had any indication that their system had been compromised,” ethical hacker David Chronister of Parameter Security told Business Insider. “There’s this misconception that if someone is attacked they’ll know right away, but unless the hacker really screws up, the target won’t know until it’s too late.” The 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner also said that the personal server “was on property guarded by the Secret Service.” However, the former secretary of state did not provide details about the technical team that oversaw the personal system, which would involve several experts constantly looking for hackers if it was a government system. “You can never lock down a network enough to fully avoid […]

How do you put an international spotlight on an issue like child sexual abuse which people often don’t like to hear about?

Have the leader of one the largest organized religions in the world stop by for a visit.

That’s what staff of the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance (PCA) are hoping will happen come September.

The nonprofit, which offers care to sexually abused children and works with police to bring their abusers to justice, penned a letter to Pope Francis asking him to visit their facility when he travels to Philadelphia for the upcoming World Meeting of Families conference.
