#cybersecurity | #hackerspace | Four Important Steps to Secure the United States 2020 Election

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

It’s an unfortunate reality that cyber attacks on the U.S. 2020 election are likely to happen. However, while this is a potent threat to democracy, an even greater threat is to not take the necessary actions to prevent these attacks until it is too late.

There are many different types of cyberattacks that the U.S. 2020 election could face.

  • Attacks on electronic poll books and registration systems to remove individuals from voter rolls, swap their polling location, or claim they’ve voted when they haven’t.
  • Hacking attacks against election websites that educate the public on voting times, polling locations, and the current status of registrations.
  • Disinformation campaigns that disseminate inaccurate results through election night reporting system attacks.

Preventing these attacks requires clever contingency planning and addressing key issues present in the current systems that voters and their states engage with. This article aims to address these issues.

Upgrade voting machines

The most important step in protecting American elections is securing its voting machines. This is hardly a surprise given that the easiest form of attack to comprehend (and by far the most frightening) is the stealthy introduction of malware into voting machines so that election results are changed without anyone noticing.

The first step (and most important) in this process is giving paperless systems a “paper backup” of every vote, one that is verified by each voter. Without this, there is no way to independently assess whether the digital totals provided by the voting machines are legitimate. While this may seem like a huge step, this is something that the United States has made sizable progress towards achieving, that is, halving the number of paperless machines used before 2017.

In a general sense, most American voting machines pose a security risk just by virtue of their age. At a (Read more…)

#cybersecurity | #hackerspace | Coronavirus: The Unexpected Human Element at RSA Conference 2020

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

It was Sunday, February 23, 2020, and I was packing my bags for an early morning flight from Detroit to San Francisco for another week at an RSA Conference covering all things related to cybersecurity. The conference theme this year was “The Human Element,” which became an ironic choice of words.

While reading-up on the best sessions, pre-conference news and other hot cyber headlines, I noticed that several large companies had pulled out of the conference because of coronavirus fears.  

Here’s an excerpt from the Business Insider article that grabbed my attention: “Verizon pulled out of the RSA Conference on Friday, joining competitor AT&T and IBM as large sponsors with coronavirus concerns abandon the cybersecurity trade show that was expected to draw more than 40,000 to San Francisco next week. …”

The RSA Conference website offered this webpage with coronavirus updates; however, the information was sparse and seldom updated. No new updates were added after February 25, which started with this less than comforting news, “Today, the City of San Francisco declared a State of Emergency to begin preparations around any future coronavirus outbreaks. The City stated that residents and visitors remain at low risk for becoming infected with the coronavirus and that the number of cases within the City remains at zero. …”

My Delta flight was overbooked, and the airport seemed packed on Monday morning as I traversed through TSA security lines in Detroit. Several TSA officials wore face masks, and most of them were wearing plastic gloves, which I had not seen before.

Thankfully, my flight arrived early, and I was able to attend most of the RSA Public Sector Day at the San Francisco Hilton by Union Square. There was an excellent agenda of topics and federal, state and local government speakers on issues (Read more…)

#hacking | Bug Bounty Radar // The latest bug bounty programs for February 2020

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

New web targets for the discerning hacker

Global awareness of hackers continued to ramp up throughout the month of February, with the launch of new and improved bug bounty programs and the realization that some heroes wear… black hoodies.

That was the feeling, at least, in the French city of Lille, which hosted a two-day live hacking event as part of the 2020 Forum International de la Cybersécurité, an annual security conference and trade show.

The event saw 100 hackers finding bugs in the systems of The Red Cross, Oui SNCF, secure messaging provider Olvid, and Cybermalveillance.gouv.fr, a cybersecurity division of the French government.

“Bug bounties are not only for Uber or Deezer, it’s for any organization inspired by cybersecurity and willing to address the bugs in its systems,” Rodolphe Harand, manager of YesWeHack, the bug bounty platform that hosted the live hacking competition, told The Daily Swig.

Not long after the event, French cyber awareness site Cybermalveillance.gouv.fr announced that it was going public with its bug bounty program, one that it had been running privately on the YesWeHack platform since December 2019.

Bounties awarded for high risk and critical flaws are also set to double under the program’s public scope, The Daily Swig reported this month, alongside an interview with the Belgium-based platform intigriti, which has its sights set on global expansion.

If you’re interested in bug bounty market news, February was full of statistics related to payouts and hacker insights, as Facebook highlighted the $2 million it paid out to security researchers through its bug bounty program in 2019.

Dropbox also patted itself on the back, having doled out $1 million in cash to security researchers since its vulnerability rewards program began in 2014.

In related news, HackerOne published its 2020 Hacker Report, which found that although bug bounty payouts across the platform continue to rise, nearly two-thirds of security researchers (63%) have withheld the disclosure of security vulnerabilities on at least one occasion.

The reasons behind this were multifaceted, but the factors that stood out were fear of reprimand, lack of a clear reporting channel, and organizations being unresponsive to previous bug reports.

“I think we really need to disambiguate what people mean by the term ‘bug bounty’,” Casey Ellis, founder of Bugcrowd, told The Daily Swig in a recent chat about the uptake of IoT bug bounty programs.

“They are usually thinking about a public bug bounty, which definitely is the last line of defense.”

FCC FINES TOP MOBILE CARRIERS: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is proposing more than $200 million in fines against the country’s top mobile carriers after a lengthy investigation concluded T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon improperly sold access to their customers’ precise location information. 

The agency is alleging the companies broke the law by failing to protect information about the geolocation of their hundreds of millions of customers. 

“The FCC has long had clear rules on the books requiring all phone companies to protect their customers’ personal information,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai (R) said. “And since 2007, these companies have been on notice that they must take reasonable precautions to safeguard this data and that the FCC will take strong enforcement action if they don’t.”

“Today, we do just that,” Pai said.

The proposed fines — which Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint are now allowed to contest — are some of the largest the FCC has proposed in decades. But since reports began emerging about the fines on Thursday night, consumer advocates and privacy hawks in Congress have accused the regulatory agency of holding back and letting the telecom companies off the hook with fines that amount to a “rounding error” compared to their significant bottom lines.

Sen. Ron WydenRonald (Ron) Lee WydenOvernight Health Care — Presented by American Health Care Association — California monitoring 8,400 people for coronavirus | Pence taps career official to coordinate response | Dems insist on guardrails for funding Schiff presses top intel official to declassify part of report on Khashoggi killing Top Trump advisers discuss GOP need to act on health care at retreat with senators MORE (D-Ore.), who was one of the first to shed light on the companies’ unlawful information sharing, released a statement accusing Pai of going easy on the companies.

“It seems clear Chairman Pai has failed to protect American consumers at every stage of the game – this issue only came to light after my office and dedicated journalists discovered how wireless companies shared Americans’ locations willy nilly,” Wyden said. “He only investigated after public pressure mounted.”

“And now his response is a set of comically inadequate fines that won’t stop phone companies from abusing Americans’ privacy the next time they can make a quick buck,” Wyden said.

Verizon, for instance, boasted a total revenue of $31.4 billion in 2019 and is facing a fine of $48 million.

The FCC is proposing a fine of $91 million for T-Mobile, $57 million for AT&T, $48 million for Verizon and $12 million for Sprint.  

T-Mobile, which is facing the largest fine by far, said in a statement Friday that it intends to dispute the FCC’s conclusions.

“We take the privacy and security of our customers’ data very seriously,” T-Mobile said. “While we strongly support the FCC’s commitment to consumer protection, we fully intend to dispute the conclusions of this NAL and the associated fine.” 

Public Knowledge, a consumer rights group, said the FCC’s fines indicate the chairman is enforcing the law “to the barest degree possible.”

Elections have changed and so has Facebook

Facebook has made large investments to protect elections, including tripling the size of the teams working on safety and security to more than 35,000. But the work doesn’t stop there.

TURN IT IN: House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie ThompsonBennie Gordon ThompsonRussian interference reports rock Capitol Hill Intel officials warned House lawmakers Russia is interfering to get Trump reelected: NYT Top Democrats demand answers on DHS plans to deploy elite agents to sanctuary cities MORE (D-Miss.) on Friday raised concerns around the Department of Homeland Security’s failure to submit a congressionally mandated election security report on time. 

DHS was required under the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act to submit a report to Congress on successful and attempted cyberattacks on U.S. election infrastructure during the 2016 elections, along with any future cyberattacks on elections that DHS anticipates. 

The agency was required by the NDAA to submit the report within 60 days of the bill being signed into law. President TrumpDonald John TrumpThe Memo: Biden seeks revival in South Carolina Congress eyes billion to billion to combat coronavirus Sanders makes the case against Biden ahead of SC primary MORE signed the NDAA on Dec. 20, with Feb. 18 marking the deadline for the report to be submitted to appropriate congressional committees. 

Thompson, whose committee is among those that DHS is required to submit the report to, said Friday that the failure of DHS to submit the report “further obstructs Congress’ abilities to conduct proper oversight,” and noted this was “in direct violation of the law.”

“The threat to our democracy from foreign governments is real, and the Administration’s pattern of denial must stop,” Thompson added. “With President Trump in office, the American people cannot expect our elections to be secure and free from foreign interference or cyber-attacks with status quo measures in place.”

‘WALZ’-ING AROUND: Twitter earlier this month verified an account for a fake 2020 congressional candidate created by a teenager.

The account was for a fictional Republican congressional candidate from Rhode Island named Andrew Walz.

His Twitter bio claimed that Walz was a “proven business leader” and a “passionate advocate for students,” CNN Business first reported.

The owner of the account was a 17-year-old high schooler from upstate New York who, according to the network, made the account over the holidays because he was “bored.”

“During Christmas break I was kind of bored and I learned a lot from history class, but also on the news they were talking more about misinformation,” the high school student told CNN Business.

The teen said it took him about 20 minutes to make the website for his candidate and then another five minutes to create the Twitter account.

He got his profile picture from a website called This Person Does Not Exist, which computer generates realistic photos of fake people.

Then, he filled out a short survey with information about his fake candidate on Ballotpedia, the nonprofit “Encyclopedia for American Politics.” Twitter announced in December that it would be partnering with the nonprofit in an attempt to verify more congressional candidates. 

However, according to the student, neither Twitter or Ballotpedia asked for any further kind of identification to confirm that Walz was, in fact, genuine.

The social media platform has received flak from candidates who say it has been slow to verify them.

REDDIT DINGS TIKTOK: TikTok is under scrutiny from Reddit CEO and co-founder Steve Huffman for practices he calls “fundamentally parasitic,” referring to serious privacy concerns surrounding the app.

The app is a video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based company established in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. TikTok launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in markets outside of China.

Huffman said one of the suspicious practices the company partakes in is fingerprinting, a method of tracking devices for each unique visitor, according to The Verge.

“Maybe I’m going to regret this, but I can’t even get to that level of thinking with [TikTok],” Huffman said at the Social 2030 venture capital conference. “I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic, that it’s always listening, the fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like that on my phone.”

Research by data protection expert Matthias Eberl highlights the fingerprinting Huffman refers to as an aggregate of audio and browser tracking, allowing the company to know the types of content each user is following. TikTok parent company ByteDance claims the fingerprinting methods are for recognizing malicious browser behavior, but Eberl offers his skepticism, as the platform seemingly works fine without the scripts enabled.

“I actively tell people, ‘Don’t install that spyware on your phone,’ ” Huffman said of TikTok’s software.

SCHEMING: Advocates are sounding the alarm over online scams that leave senior citizens particularly vulnerable, urging lawmakers and administration officials to take more steps to protect unsuspecting Americans.

Experts say that threat is heightened during tax season as online options for filing have grown in popularly, opening the door to more scams aimed at obtaining sensitive information or money from victims.

“Consumers should be especially vigilant as we approach tax season,” said Bill Versen, chief product officer at Transaction Network Services, a data services provider.

While there are a slew of scams at tax filing season, experts say that the elderly face a higher risk of being ensnared and experiencing financial hardship.

The most common kinds of tax scams are phishing and calls where a scammer impersonates an IRS official, according to Monique Becenti, a product specialist at cybersecurity firm SiteLock.

Phishing is a tactic used by hackers to get access to private information using fake emails, text messages and social media posts.

These communications are designed to bait unaware users, often the elderly, into giving up their personal information or clicking on links that can download dangerous malware onto computers and phones alike.

But the most common scam between 2014 and 2018 was fraudulent IRS calls, according to a yearly report released by the Senate Committee on Aging.

In those calls, the scammer impersonates an IRS official, demanding payment or sensitive information. In some cases, scammers have been known to threaten to suspend licenses, close businesses or even arrest individuals if they fail to pay fake bills.

“The overall goal is cyber criminals trying to file taxes on behalf of that person,” Becenti told The Hill. And once an individual falls victim, scammers can run further schemes. “Ultimately, they have their Social Security number. … Now they have the ability to open up fraudulent accounts on behalf of that individual.”

CHANGE OF PACE: Facebook sued a marketing company Thursday, alleging in federal court that the firm “improperly” collected data from users of the social media platform.

The lawsuit, filed in the Northern District Court of California, claimed oneAudience paid developers to use a malicious software development kit, or SDK, in their apps.

SDKs are tools that let developers make apps more quickly.

OneAudience’s SDK collected data in an improper fashion from Facebook users who opted to log in to certain apps, the lawsuit alleged.

Facebook claimed the data included names, email addresses and gender, in limited cases.

Facebook said it sent a cease-and-desist letter to oneAudience in November, but claimed the company did not cooperate with a requested audit.

OneAudience did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In a blog post, Jessica Romero, Facebook’s director of platform enforcement and litigation, wrote that the lawsuit was filed to protect the platform’s users.

“This is the latest in our efforts to protect people and increase accountability of those who abuse the technology industry and users,” she wrote. “Through these lawsuits, we will continue sending a message to people trying to abuse our services that Facebook is serious about enforcing our policies.”

“Hey it’s Rob Blagojevich. I’m very excited to connect with you on Cameo. If you want a birthday greeting, an anniversary greeting, motivation or any other kind of shoutout, I can’t wait to hear from you,” the former lawmaker said on his account.
