European Cyber Army Start Targeting Syria

In a Pastebin post entitled “ECA vs. Assad | Part 1,” Zer0Pwn published sample data, along with a SendSpace link to the full databases.

The sample data includes full names, user names, encrypted passwords, e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

The file on SendSpace includes more than 60,000 full names, user names, phone numbers and home addresses, along with encrypted passwords for Jobs.sy and clear text passwords for RealEstate.sy.

Cyber War News notes that other recent targets of the European Cyber Army have included syrianmonster.com, syria-courts.com, sana.sy, moj.gov.sy, and banquecentrale.gov.sy.

Syria needs to work hardest on their websites security when they are already warned.

Talk Talk hackers start raids on customers’ bank accounts

The gang, who have dubbed themselves ‘CYBER JIHADIS’ sent a ransom demand after successfully hacking the entire customer data base of the to the communications giant.

The phone and broadband provider said credit card, bank details other personal information were stolen.

TalkTalk said it was “too early to say” how many of its four million UK customers had been affected by the attack.

But today it emerged that already attempts – strangely low-level attempts – had been made to raid customers’ cash.

Discussing the identity of the hackers Adrian Culley, a former detective in the Metropolitan Police’s cyber crime unit, told the BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme:

Before MORE Website’s Heart start bleeding it’s Better to Encrypt the entire Internet

The Heartbleed bug crushed everyone’s faith in the secure web, but a world without the encryption software that Heartbleed exploited would be even worse. In fact, it’s time for the web to take a good hard look at a new idea: encryption everywhere.

Most major websites use either the SSL or TLS protocol to protect your password or credit card information as it travels between your browser and their servers. Whenever you see that a site is using HTTPS, as opposed to HTTP, you know that SSL/TLS is being used. But only a few sites — like Facebook and Gmail — actually use HTTPS to protect all of their traffic as opposed to just passwords and payment details.

Many security experts — including Google’s in-house search guru, Matt Cutts — think it’s time to bring this style of encryption to the entire web. That means secure connections to everything from your bank site to Wired.com to the online menu at your local pizza parlor.

Cutts runs Google’s web spam team. He helps the company tweak its search engine algorithms to prioritize certain sites over others. For example, the search engine prioritizes sites that load quickly, and penalizes sites that copy — or “scrape” — text from others.

If Cutts had his way, Google would prioritize sites that use HTTPS over those that don’t, he told blogger Barry Schwartz at a conference earlier this year. The change, if it were ever implemented, would likely spur an HTTPS stampede as web sites competed for better search rankings.
A Google spokesperson would only tell us that the company has nothing to announce at this time. So this change won’t happen overnight.

The Dispute Against Total SSL

But if HTTPS is so great, then why don’t all websites use it already? There are several disadvantages to using HTTPS everywhere, the World Wide Web Consortium’s HTTPS expert Yves Lafon told us in 2011.

The first is the increased cost. You have to purchase TLS certificates from one of several certificate authorities, which can cost anything from $10 dollars per year to about $1,000 dollars a year, depending on the type of certificate you purchase and the level of identity verification it provides. Another issue is that HTTPS increases server resource consumption and can slow sites down. But Marlinspike and Butler say the costs and resource overhead are actually greatly overestimated.

An issue for smaller sites is that it’s historically been hard to set up unique certificates on sites that use cheap shared hosting. Also, sites that used content delivery networks — or CDNs — to speed up their responsiveness also frequently faced challenges when implementing SSL. Both of these issues have been largely resolved today, though the costs, performance and complexity varies from host to host.

But even if the entire web isn’t ready to switch completely to HTTPS, there are plenty of reasons that more sites should start using HTTPS by default — especially sites that provide public information and software. And given how far we’ve already come since the days of FireSheep, we can expect HTTPS to continue to continue to spread, even if Google doesn’t start prioritizing sites that use it.

Crime down after Hampshire police start wearing body cameras

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

That’s the conclusion of researchers at Portsmouth University’s Institute of Criminal Justice Studies. They found that public order and assault crimes dropped by 18 per cent, from just over 1,700 to 1,400 in the year that police on the Isle of Wight were wearing cameras. It also found that assaults on police went down by a third. The 160 cameras were issued to officers on the Island on 1 July 2013 and the detailed study evaluated the year prior to the issue of BWVs and the year after. Five hundred more body-worn BWV cameras will be rolled out to frontline officers in Hampshire over the next three months and the effects of that on crime rates will also be evaluated by the University of Portsmouth. Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Hayes said: ’This report identifies clear benefits to victims of crime, plus officers, and should be of some reassurance to society as a whole. In particular, outcomes for victims of domestic abuse on the Island appear to have been significantly improved as a result of evidence captured through BWV.” The impact the cameras had on public order and assault was quite impressive – a sure sign that they are […]
