Facebook’s new alert system warned the US about Iranian hackers

Facebook’s new alert system warned the US about Iranian hackers

How do you think the US would find out about a state-sponsored hack from Iran? SophisticatedSECURITY SOFTWARE? Surveillance? Nope — Facebook. According to the New York Times, State Department officials were tipped off about an Iranian hacking campaign thanks to Facebook implementing a government attack alert system just last month. They knew something was up when they got messages about being the victims of “state-sponsored actors.” Reportedly, the cyberattackers were hoping to use the social networkingACCOUNTS of younger government staff to compromise other, more prominent staffers in the government division. Iran is no stranger to online spying, including through social links. It once created a fake news site to trick officials into compromising theirACCOUNTS, and it launched a hacking campaign last year that targeted everyone from government higher-ups to dissidents. However, this latest attempt was clearly very sophisticated, an unnamed official tells the NYT. The intruders were aware of which people were working on Iranian policy following its nuclear agreement with the US, and the bottom-up approach is considerably smarter than the all-out Russian attacks from recent memory. From allINDICATIONS, Iran is trying to get away with as much hacking as it can without wrecking its nuclear deal — it’s […]

Hacker hits 24 sites to ‘alert’ govt

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A national hacked more than 24 government websites Saturday morning in just two hours after those in charge of these websites ignored messages of a possible attack, said an online newspaper. Through his Twitter account, the hacker “Cyber of Emotion” said that after the government websites ignored his messages about a possible attack, his group announced that it was going to attack those websites lacking strong protection and security. The Saudi hacker and his team with the Arabic hashtag #minna_wala_min_ghairena (from us and not from others) said these hackings would not harm the data. “We are just creating a hurdle in the entry till these websites are corrected,” he said. After attacking the sites, the hacker wrote both in English and Arabic: “We do not want to disrespect the website. We do not want anything. But if an enemy attacked it, your data about e-mails and users would be compromised. We are informing you that we want government websites protected from enemies before any major incident happens.” Some of the targeted sites belong to the office of the kindergarten education, Qunfuda Health City, Misan Municipality, Center of Social Development of Al-Aflaj, Al Mahani Municipality, Al Ghat Municipality, office of the […]

FDA alert advises hospitals and med centers stop using hacker-vulnerable networked IV pumps

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued an alert advising hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical care centers to stop using the Symbiq Infusion System of intravenous pumps, which deliver IV medications with dosages programmed over a hospital’s wireless network. As the FDA’s release says: “The FDA, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), and [pump manufacturer] Hospira are aware of cybersecurity vulnerabilities associated with the Symbiq Infusion System. FDA strongly encourages health care facilities transition to alternative infusion systems, and discontinue use of these pumps. Hospira and an independent researcher confirmed that Hospira’s Symbiq Infusion System could be accessed remotely through a hospital’s network.” If a hacker did gain such illicit remote access, it would be trivially easy to change the programmed drug doses, with results that could be harmful or even fatal to patients. However, the FDA stressed that thus far, there’s no evidence any hackers actually have taken advantage of this although “due to recent cybersecurity concerns, the FDA strongly encourages health care facilities to begin transitioning to alternative infusion systems as soon as possible.” Healthcare hacking poses major problem Those unnamed “recent cybersecurity concerns” surely refer to the near-constant […]

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The National Cyber Security Alliance is reporting that 84 percent of Americans feel the need to protect their personal information. From the sudden awareness of hacking incidents involving cars to a person’s identity, the Florida Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) is reminding Florida residents to learn more about cyber security with a few tips: Stop: Personal information is like money — value it. Protect it. Do not share online account access with anyone who is not a joint owner of the account, and never share personal account passwords with anyone. Take time to learn the risks and ways to spot potential problems. One common way to protect your personal information is to keep your passwords strong and safe by regularly changing them and never using the same password for multiple accounts online. It is also important to use trusted vendors at all times, and regularly perform virus scans on your computer system using up-to-date security software. Think: Share with care — what you post online can last a lifetime. Consider how your actions online can affect you and your family’s safety. Connect: Demand privacy — you deserve it.
