Dark Web Analysis By Anna Chung, Principal Researcher at Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks

 

Within the Deep and Dark Web, ransomware attacks are expected to continue in 2020. This year, my team and I came across an increasing number of threat actors selling ransomware, ransomware-as-a-service, and ransomware tutorials. Underground products and services like these enable malicious threat actors who are not technically savvy to enter the game.

Threat actors will continue exploring new methods to monetise compromised IoT devices, beyond IoT botnets and IoT-based VPNs, due to the uncapped profit potential. IoT devices remain a popular target among hackers, mostly because IoT security awareness and education is not as prevalent as it should be, and the number of IoT devices will continue to grow at an exponential rate as 5G develops and becomes mainstream.

We’re continuing to see instances where the failure to configure containers properly is leading to the loss of sensitive information and as a result, default configurations are posing significant security risks to organisations.

Misconfigurations, such as using default container names and leaving default service ports exposed to the public, leave organisations vulnerable to targeted reconnaissance. The implications can vary greatly, as we’ve already seen simple misconfigurations within cloud services lead to severe impacts on organisations.

Dark Web Analysis: Authentication Mechanism

When a company is beginning to address or prepare for these types of attacks, it’s important they never expose a Docker daemon to the internet without a proper authentication mechanism. Note that by default the Docker Engine (CE) is not exposed to the internet. Key recommendations include:

  • Incorporate Unix sockets – Using these allow you to communicate with Docker daemon locally or use SSH to connect to a remote docker daemon.
  • Leverage the firewall – Whitelist incoming traffic to a small sets of sources against firewall rules to provide an extra added layer of security.
  • Caution against the unknown – Never pull Docker images from unknown registries or unknown user namespaces.
  • Employ always-on searches – Frequently check for any unknown containers or images in your system.
  • Identify malicious containers and prevent cryptojacking activities – When a new vulnerability in the internal container environments is revealed, it is critical to patch it up quickly as attackers will be on a race to exploit any systems they can access. Having tools that actively scan your environment for known vulnerabilities and provide alerts on dangerous configurations can help to maintain the security of all container components consistently and over time.
  • Integrate security into DevOps workflows – This will allow for your security teams to scale their efforts in an automated way. Developers have a lot of power in the cloud, and your security needs to be able to keep up.
  • Maintain runtime protection – As your organisation’s cloud footprint grows, being able to automatically model and whitelist application behavior becomes a powerful tool for securing cloud workloads against attacks and compromises.

Many data breaches today are driven by financially motivated cyber threat actors, and this type of attack prefers targets that have rich personal identifiable information (PII), including financial institutes, hospitals, hotels, airlines, and almost all e-commerce sites.

From an underground economic perspective, this is data that can be quickly monetised and resold multiple times. Different data has different buyers, but overall speaking in regard to PII, payment information is preferred due to the card-not-present type of fraud. Therefore, sites that process and collect individual payment information typically are more attractive to attackers in this instance.

While we have seen a certain amount of cyber-offensive behavior using AI, such as identity impersonation by using deep faking, we are still in the very early stages of seeing the full potential of AI-enabled attacks. On the flipside, we are seeing an increase in cyber defenders using AI to detect and mitigate threats.

Dark Web Training

Businesses and CSOs should prioritise security awareness training for all employees, going beyond just explaining how cyber-attacks occur and how they may impact an organisation as a whole, but educating their workforce at individual level  on proactive steps they can take to identify and prevent security attacks. Simple exercises like issuing phishing email detection tests or software update reminders, help raise security awareness among employees to make for more secure daily operations and help reduce the success rate of attacks.

One of the major security challenges facing today’s digital age is the fact that there are too many devices and security policies in place, making it difficult to monitor and maintain. Prioritising highly-automated security solutions that cover multiple environments will increase visibility and control over the entire operational environment by simplifying the management process, reducing costs and freeing up more time to identify the existing pain points and future roadmaps.

You Season 2 Review: What’s It About? & How’s The Screenplay?

You Season 2 Review: Go, Take A Dive In Joe’s Deep Dark World, But Come Out Of It Before It’s Too Late

After Candace comes back Joe’s life to seek revenge, he immediately leaves New York and goes to Los Angeles and roots for ‘A Fresh Start’. He changes his name. Now he is Will Bettleheim. Finds new love in Love Quinn and new family in her brother Forty Quinn and starts working at their bakery only.

Joe Goldberg aka Will Bettleheim has huge baggage of past on his mind now and he wants to change himself completely. To make the necessary changes in his life, he does everything possible but how easy or difficult it is to get out of the dark world once you are sucked in in? Or is it possible?

Watch out You Season 2 to know about that.

The first season of You was loved by the audience for its unique style of presenting the dark side of a man. His creepy yet charming personality looted the audience especially girls’ hearts even though they didn’t want it to be the case. A serial killer, a stalker who has wild senses and absolutely no control over them. When killing someone he doesn’t think he is doing a sin, he convinces himself to think that he is helping his loved one instead. Now that’s something really hard-hitting. How will a person realise that he is doing wrong if he has convinced himself for it with all the heart? Before killing someone he has killed his soul and that’s scary to the core.

In season 2, things get creepier. As Joe, now Will tries to lead a more peaceful and better life, he faces bigger challenges. While trying to make a better future and making peace with the past, there come several situations which will make you hit the pause button and close your eyes, because what are you even watching? Also, the show keeps you hooked and provides you an edge of the seat thrill which makes this 10-episode show worth a binge-watch. Although season 2 seems a little slower compared to the first one that doesn’t turn out to be a major issue.

But watch out the show for its mind fu**ing finale! Don’t miss the last two episodes of the show for anything as they hold most of the juice. It’s unpredictable and shocking to the core.

You Season 2 Review: How Are The Performances?

Penn Badgley lives the character of Joe aka Will. He gets into the skin of the character so much so that it’s impossible to think that Penn and Joe are not the same people. Performing a layered and complex character like this is no child’s play and Penn has done it so effortlessly.

Victoria Pedretti who was last seen in The Haunting of Hill House looks gorgeous and performs very well. She is a natural actor and makes her character of Love Quinn believable.

James Scully as Forty Quinn is effortless. He does his job beautifully and leaves an impression.

Jenna Ortega & Carmela Zumbado are good too. Ambyr Childers as Candace makes the screen look magical. Elizabeth Lail is there too for a small interval as Will keeps on hallucinating her. Basically, American shows have a typical way of keeping their dead characters alive. Someone has to suffer hallucination issues after a person dies and the latter must come in former’s thoughts. After 13 Reasons Why, I’ve seen the same thing in this one as well and have understood why Ekta Kapoor has a thing of bringing back dead people in her serials like anything.

Overall, You Season 2 is a must-watch if you loved the first season. if you haven’t seen the first one yet, make sure you start from there. Go, take a dive in the deep dark world of Joe but make sure you come out before it’s too late.

Rating: 3.5/5

#deepweb | Hulk’s Snap in Avengers 4 Has a Deep Cut Connection to Betty Ross

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Avengers: Endgame features a touching connection to Betty Ross. The character was played by Liv Tyler in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. In the 2008 movie, Edward Norton portrayed Bruce Banner and Hulk for the first and only time. Mark Ruffalo came on board to take over in 2012’s Avengers, and we have yet to see a standalone Hulk movie in the current version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that being said, the Russo Brothers were able to put in a deep cut Easter Egg for Betty Ross in Endgame.

While doing press for Infinity War back in 2018, the Russo Brothers were constantly asked about the victims of Thanos’ Decimation. The Mad Titan was able to wipe out half of the living universe with a single snap, thanks to the Infinity Stones. In an interview, the Russos confirmed that Betty Ross was one of the victims of the Decimation, which leads us to how it was ultimately reversed. But first, we have to go back and see what version of Hulk we have in Avengers: Endgame.

In Infinity War, we saw Bruce Banner and Hulk having an inner battle. Hulk was not willing to come out and do Banner’s dirty work any longer, so he hid. Even when Thanos and his army were destroying Wakanda and killing fellow Avengers, Hulk stood his ground. In the time between the last movie and Avengers: Endgame, we learn that Banner and Hulk have come to an agreement, which introduces Smart Hulk to the big screen. The character is based on Professor Hulk from the comics. It’s this hybrid version of both characters that wields the Stark Infinity Gauntlet and brings back half of the universe, reversing Thanos’ actions.

This means that it was Bruce Banner and Hulk who brought Betty Ross back from the void. It’s kind of romantic when one thinks about it, though it is not explicitly stated if Banner knew about Ross this whole time or not. Smart Hulk took some major damage when he snapped his fingers, showing he was willing to sacrifice it all for the universe and Ross. In the end, Tony Stark wield the gauntlet to take out Thanos once and for all, which ends up killing him. This shows just how strong Smart Hulk is, thanks to the agreement between Banner and the monster.

There have been whispers of Liv Tyler possibly returning as Betty Ross in the upcoming She-Hulk Disney+ series. That has obviously not been confirmed, but Mark Ruffalo has also expressed interest in having at least a cameo. For now, the Liv Tyler talks are nothing but rumors for the time being, but we should receive an update in the near future. The Russo Brothers, along with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, were able to throw a lot into the three-hour movie and fans are still finding connections from within. There are probably a lot more that have yet to be discovered. Marvel Studios’ Infinity Saga Limited Edition Box Set is currently sold out, but it includes some deleted scenes from Endgame and Infinity War that offer even more context. Hopefully they release a general version soon.
