Former NY Hospital Employee Admits to Stealing …

Richard Liriano pleads guilty to compromising hospital computers and co-workers’ email accounts, as well as stealing personal files and photos.

The former IT employee of a New York City-area hospital has pled guilty to stealing colleagues’ credentials and logging into various accounts to steal private and confidential files, the Department of Justice reports. He used this access to view photos, videos, and other data.

Between 2013 and 2018, the allegations state, Richard Liriano abused his administrative access to log into employee accounts and copy his colleagues’ personal documents, including tax records and personal photographs, onto his own machine. To do this, he installed malicious programs, including a keylogger, onto victims’ machines so he could capture their credentials.

Over the course of this time frame, Liriano stole the usernames and passwords of about 70 or more email accounts belonging to hospital employees or people associated with them. He then obtained unauthorized access to password-protected email, social media, photography, and other online accounts where the victims were registered.

“Liriano’s disturbing crimes not only invaded the privacy of his coworkers; he also intruded into computers housing vital healthcare and patient information, costing his former employer hundreds of thousands of dollars to remediate,” US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement. Liriano’s intrusions into the hospital networks caused more than $350,000 in losses.

 Green Bay Police say they are investigating the hacking of a local corporation’s computer network, resulting in the theft of “significant amounts of money” from victims in the organization.

Police did not immediately identify the company that was attacked. Action 2 News will work to find that out.

Officers say the hackers stole human resources information.

“In this case, it appeared the cyber actors utilized a known vulnerability to access the company’s computer systems and human resources software to steal personal identifying information from employees,” reads a statement from Capt. Jeremy Muraski.

Police say the vulnerability was a known issue and a security patch had not been installed and updated.

“This incident demonstrates how vital it is to maintain public facing computer systems with the latest security patches from the server companies as cyber actors will attempt to use exploits as long as they are finding vulnerable systems,” reads the statement from Capt. Muraski.

Another IRS employee charged with literally robbing taxpayers

Another IRS employee charged with literally robbing taxpayers

The IRS has had its share of scandals over the past decade and the ones which seem to draw the most attention are the partisan battles over “extra scrutiny” given to conservative groups. But what about the non-partisan, completely unbiased crooks who are just looking to rip off the government and the taxpayers to line their own pockets? There is yet another case of such alleged activity unfolding this week. The Department of Justice announced yesterday that an arrest had been made in the case of an IRS worker who allegedly engaged in identity theft, using the personal information of taxpayers to file bogus returns “on their behalf” and keeping the money for herself. (Department of Justice website)

A federal grand jury sitting in the Northern District of Georgia indicted an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employee today for wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, announced Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart M. Goldberg of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney John A. Horn for the Northern District of Georgia.

According to the indictment, since November 2010, Stephanie Parker of Atlanta, Georgia, worked at the IRS and had access to taxpayers’ personal identifying information, such as social security numbers and dates of birth. The indictment alleges that between September 2012 and April 2013, Parker exploited her IRS accesses to steal such personal information, which she then used to file tax returns seeking refunds in the names of other individuals. Parker allegedly directed the fraudulently obtained refunds into nominee bank accounts and used some of those funds to purchase money orders.

An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
First of all, well done to the Criminal Investigation and Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and the DoJ for uncovering this and taking action. But in addition to identifying this one particular (alleged) instance, perhaps the new administration can take a fresh look at the hiring procedures and screening in place at the IRS. These are people who are placed in positions where they have unfettered access to all manner of private information on citizens, including all of their financial data and identification. Whether a dishonest employee is looking to score political victories or simply feather their own nest, letting any bad apples through is a huge risk.

I’d compare this to anyone wanting a job as a truck driver, just for one example. If you want to go and do short haul deliveries of bread from the bakery to the grocery store you’ll probably have a good shot at the job if you simply have a clean driving record and show up for the interview sober. But if you want a job with Loomis or Brinks driving an armored car, be prepared for a comprehensive criminal background check, interviews with anyone who has ever known you and personal monitoring of your every move. Are we exercising this level of precaution when placing new government workers at the IRS? If so, great. But if not, the new broom may want to sweep even more cleanly at the Internal Revenue Service.

Americans are forced to pay taxes. They are also given no choice in entrusting this task and all of the responsibilities for safeguarding their private data to the federal government. They have a right to know that the best possible practices are in place to ensure that trust is deserved.

A former Goldman Sachs employee built a dating app that matches you based on what you hate — and it’s just launched in the UK

A former Goldman Sachs employee has found a new way to connect people through online dating — mutual hatred. Instead of trying to find common hobbies and interests, 29-year-old Brendan Alper suggests those looking for love should instead focus on the things they hate. New dating app, Hater, is the first to work under the principle that mutual dislikes bring people closer than shared interests. Created by Alper, it allows people to select how much they like, dislike, love, or hate over 2,000 things — including Donald Trump, cargo shorts, or paying extra for guacamole — using a swipe system.
