ISIS Twitter Accounts, IP Addresses Connected To British Government, Hackers Claim

At least three social media accounts belonging to supporters of the Islamic State group have been traced back to the British government, according to the hacking group VandaSec. The group, which is comprised of four male teenagers, says it discovered that the United Kingdom’s Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) owns Internet protocol (IP) addresses used by at least three jihadists to access Twitter accounts and conduct online recruitment and propaganda campaigns, reported the Mirror. The IP addresses, a type of unique identification number that is associated with every computer and mobile phone that logs onto the Internet, appeared to be based in Saudi Arabia, but upon further inspection, the hackers were able to trace them back to DWP’s London offices. The IP addresses, a type of unique identification number that is associated with every computer and mobile phone that logs onto the Internet, appeared to be based in Saudi Arabia, but upon further inspection, the hackers were able to trace them back to DWP’s London offices. “Don’t you think that’s strange?” one of the hackers asked the Mirror. “We traced these accounts back to London, the home of the British intelligence services.” Some have suggested that British officials could […]

Here’s the deal: (NASDAQ: AAPL) is giving away brand new 64 GB iPhone 6’s to UK citizens for only £1. Yes you read that right – 1 pound. As part of a special promotion, they are working with its trusted distribution partner,RockyFroggy for giving away iPhone 6’s that cost 99% off regular retail price. Why are they offering this crazy promotion? Director of Marketing, Joel Branson explains, “Last year, UK market shares dropped to 35% and is losing to Android worldwide. They can recapture British users by giving away extremely low-priced iPhones to people and convert them into repeating customers who will spread the word to their friends”. Sounds too good to be true? That’s what 29 year-old Thomas Davies of Birmingham thought too. He decided to give it a shot and received his iPhone 6 in the mail a couple of days later. Thomas explains, “At first, I thought this was just another internet scam, but then I did some research and saw that RockyFroggy is a legitmate promotions company and partner. I decided to […]

609,239 stolen British personal details on sale for £20 each on Dark Web

Senior UK government officials have revealed that hackers have stolen personal information pertaining to tens of thousands of Britons in 2014, and that these identities are being sold on the Dark Web. The personal identities of 609,239 UK individuals were hacked from either a “government gateway” database that consisted of information from departments like the Department for Work and Pensions and HM Revenue & Customs, or from UK businesses, many in unreported incidents. These details were revealed to the Financial Times by security firm Symantec, and the figure was confirmed by the UK government. Symantec said that the stolen identities include all the bank account details required to steal money from an individual, and each identity is now being sold on the Dark Web for $30 (£20) on average. The Dark Web is a section of the internet not discoverable by conventional means through a Google or Bing search, or by directly entering a website URL. As the websites are hidden, they are perfect for cyber criminals, who put thousands of goods and services for sale on secret underground marketplaces, which include illegal drugs, chemicals, firearms and counterfeit goods, as well as adverts for services such as hacking, gambling and […]

IS hackers intercept secret British government emails

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Islamic State (IS) hackers have intercepted top secret British government emails in a major security breach, a media report said on Saturday. The breach was uncovered by the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), Mirror online reported. An investigation by the intelligence organisation has discovered that IS extremists have been targeting information held by some of Prime Minister David Cameron’s most senior ministers, including Theresa May, the Home Secretary. The extremists could have discovered events that government figures and members of the Royal family were expected to attend as a result of the hacking. the GCHQ said. It is understood that at least one of the plot’s ringleaders was killed by a drone strike in an operation disclosed by Cameron earlier this week. It is still unclear what information the extremists were able to access. However, officials were told to tighten security procedures, including changing passwords. The disclosure shows how the so-called “war on terror” has developed because of IS’ cyber capabilities – computer hackers are known to have been recruited by the group to “actively target the West”.

British hacker for Islamic State killed in U.S. drone strike in Syria: sources

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A British hacker who U.S. and European officials said became a top cyber expert for Islamic State in Syria has been killed in a U.S. drone strike, a U.S. source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. It was the second reported killing of a senior Islamic State figure in the last eight days after the group’s second-in-command was killed in a U.S. air strike in Iraq on Aug. 18. The source indicated that the U.S. Defense Department was likely involved in the drone strike that killed British hacker Junaid Hussain, a former Birmingham, England, resident. A CSO Online report said the strike took place on Tuesday near Raqqa, Syria. Hussain, 21, moved to Syria sometime in the last two years. U.S. and European government sources told Reuters earlier this year that they believed Hussain was the leader of CyberCaliphate, a hacking group which in January attacked a Twitter account belonging to the Pentagon, though the sources said they did not know if he was personally involved. While the American sources said they were confident he was killed in the strike, some people disputed that view. Two Twitter accounts that U.S. intelligence experts say are connected to Islamic State reported […]

Junaid Hussain: British hacker for Isis believed killed in US air strike

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

One of the most prominent members of the Islamic State, British-born Junaid Hussain, believed to have been killed in a US air strike, had been encouraging and directing a series of plots against western targets, security sources have told the Guardian. One of the sources said Hussain, 21, who also went by the name of Abu Hussain al-Britani, was much more than just a computer hacker and was a key figure inside the movement. The source said that in terms of the threat posed he was high up the wanted list of Isis leaders. He is believed to have been involved in plots in the US and in the UK and elsewhere in Europe and his removal was significant. Earlier this year, Isis was generally regarded by western intelligence as a problem primarily for the Middle East, with the main risk of mass attacks still likely to come from al-Qaida. But that assessment has changed, with Isis now seen as being the driving force behind a series of plots including one in Belgium in January in which Kalashnikovs, explosives and police uniforms were uncovered as part of an alleged imminent attack on police. After the man known as “Jihadi John”, […]

Ashley Madison hack suggests British government workers used official email accounts to find sex

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

British government staff and council workers used their official email accounts to sign up to affairs website Ashley Madison, it has been claimed. Dozens of email addresses linked to top Westminster departments and some of the nation’s biggest local authorities have now been published online, suggesting public servants may have tried to arrange affairs whilst they were supposed to be working. The names and email addresses have been extracted from a huge data cache released by a hacking squad called The Impact Team, before being published on easily accessible web forums. Ashley Madison generally requires an email account to be verified before it can be used to arrange affairs, suggesting wannabe cheaters would use a real address. However, the list includes several emails which are obviously fake, including one entitled “tblair@labour.gov.uk” – which is quite clearly not genuine. Up to one million Brits are thought to have signed up to Ashley Madison, which claimed a total global membership of 37 million people. The effect of being named and shamed is likely to be so devastating that experts have warned cheaters could be driven to suicide if their secret shame is exposed. The full 10gb data cache is available on the […]
