Hacking for Good: The Not-So-Scary Side of the Hacking World

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

When you think of hacking, maybe you envision someone malicious in a dark room, breaking into government or corporate websites to expose private information to the world. You might think of common code-focused hacks, hacktivist groups like Anonymous (NSFW), or maybe even the 414s from back in the 1980s. These images aren’t incorrect; however, they are just one side of the hacking world. To quote Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, “the word ‘hacker’ has an unfairly negative connotation from being portrayed in the media as people who break into computers. In reality, hacking just means building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done.” Hacking is neither malevolent nor mischievous at its core. You could argue any creative-type thinking on his or her feet is a hacker. We hear about “life hacks” all of the time. It’s even been argued that Ben Franklin was one of the greatest hackers in American history. These aren’t scary ideas. Hacking computer code doesn’t have to be either. How familiar are you with these lesser-known spheres of hacking? Ethical Hacking What better way is there to combat the bad guys than by beating them at their own game? Now as a college […]

3 On Your Side: College Student Identity Theft Concerns

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As college students begin to head back to school, they’ll get lots of reminders on how to keep their personal belongings safe.  But a different kind of theft could be far more costly.  3 On Your Side Consumer Reporter Jim Donovan has some advice for keeping personal data safe on campus. Students pass around a lot of personal information in the first days of the school year, everywhere from the registrar’s office to the bank, and that poses risks. From the federal government to massive retailers — data breaches have become more prevalent in the last few years, and academic institutions haven’t been immune.  Michael Kaiser with the National Cyber Security Alliance says, “You have student data, people coming and going to school for the first time and they’re registering for classes and they’ve got all this information they have to give the institution.  That’s all very valuable data to cybercriminals.” Kaiser believes that exchange of information, plus data from things like medical research, and other scientific contracts can make these institutions a big target.  And some, are only just catching up to that idea.  He says, “They may not always be aware of how much data […]

Bitcoin’s Dark Side Could Get Darker

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Some of the earliest adopters of the digital currency Bitcoin were criminals, who have found it invaluable in online marketplaces for contraband and as payment extorted through lucrative “ransomware” that holds personal data hostage. A new Bitcoin-inspired technology that some investors believe will be much more useful and powerful may be set to unlock a new wave of criminal innovation. That technology is known as smart contracts—small computer programs that can do things like execute financial trades or notarize documents in a legal agreement. Intended to take the place of third-party human administrators such as lawyers, which are required in many deals and agreements, they can verify information and hold or use funds using similar cryptography to that which underpins Bitcoin. Some companies think smart contracts could make financial markets more efficient, or simplify complex transactions such as property deals (see “The Startup Meant to Reinvent What Bitcoin Can Do”). Ari Juels, a cryptographer and professor at the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech, believes they will also be useful for illegal activity–and, with two collaborators, he has demonstrated how. “In some ways this is the perfect vehicle for criminal acts, because it’s meant to create trust in situations where […]

Frank Abagnale: Technology’s dark side – surge in con artists

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The man who made $2.5 million in the 1960s as a teenager faking identities as an airline pilot, lawyer and doctor now works with the FBI and others on cybercrime. He even had a role in the investigation into last year’s JPMorgan Chase & Co. hack, he said in an interview this week near Trafalgar Square in London. Abagnale became famous after the 2002 Steven Spielberg movie “Catch Me If You Can,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, based on his autobiography. He’s spent the past four decades working with the FBI spotting fraud, and says the advances in technology and the over-sharing trends propagated by social media sites like Facebook have made it much easier to create false identities with a few personal details. When he did it, he had to assume an entirely new identity and life. “What I did 50 years ago as a teenage boy is 4,000 times easier to do today because of technology,” Abagnale said. “Technology breeds crime. It always has, and always will.” Abagnale said he was in London to speak with government officials about fighting fraud. He declined to detail what he did for the FBI on the hacking case, or whom he met with […]

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 11, 2015) — Four suspects are in custody after an officer-involved shooting that occurred Wednesday on the city’s northwest side.

At about 3:25 p.m., IMPD officers were dispatched to a residential burglary in progress in the 3100 block of Gerrard Avenue.

“Someone did exactly what we ask every time. If you see something call us, and that’s exactly what this witness did,”said Rafael Diaz, a spokesperson for IMPD.

“I just heard gunshots and it sounded like it was coming from right here so I had my kids jump down and get on the ground,” said witness Lamonica Radford.
