National Flight Academy plans first-of-its kind cybersecurity camp for Pensacola-area kids

Instead of swimming, surfing or horseback riding, summer camp for some Pensacola-area kids involves sitting in a room filled with computer screens and learning about cybersecurity. Students will practice writing computer code, encrypting messages and thwarting hacking attempts in a new camp planned by the National Flight Academy in July….

Tinder scammers pose as flight attendants to trick victims into sending cash

Tinder is a pretty good way to find new people to meet, and eventually find a new partner to be with in life (if these things actually happen to work for you). It’s a different story, however, if you come to Tinder hoping for romance, but end up being catfished for money along the way. This has been the fate of a number of Tinder hopefuls in Thailand, with scammers posing as pretty women and draining them of “millions of baht,” in a rather sneaky deceit. Read More….

Hacker holds the key to free flight

A security research and student claims to have developed a method that can enable him to board a flight across Europe generating fake boarding passes designed for Apple’s Passbook app. 

Method has been developed by Andrew Hariton, an 18 year- old computer science undergrad from the University of Crete in Greece. He told that he will explain the proof of concept at the upcoming “Hack in the Box conference” on May 29 event in Amsterdam. 

Hariton (@DaKnObCS ) revealed a bypass he claims to affect the ticket scanners used before passengers step onto the jetway to board a plane. Anyone with knowledge of the bypass can board a plane from a European Union airport to a destination of their choice by creating a fake boarding pass within Apple’ s Passbook app, he said.

 He said the model used in all EU airports to check the validity of tickets was ” malfunctioning” noting they lacked ” direct access to the airliner database”, but wouldn ‘t be drawn on whether he tested his research by boarding a flight. 

Hariton said he developed a ‘simple ‘ technique to produce the boarding passes using CSS and Java within a web browser. The tickets could be passed to the Apple Passbook using an application programming interface built to allow software developers to pass tickets and coupons to the app.

Wireless Hacking In Flight: Air Force Demos Cyber EC-130

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

NATIONAL HARBOR: Matthew Broderick in his basement, playing Wargames over a landline, is still the pop culture archetype of a hacker. But as wireless networks became the norm, new-age cyber warfare and traditional electronic warfare are starting to merge. Hackers can move out of the basement to the sky. In a series of experiments, the US Air Force has successfully modified its EC-130 Compass Call aircraft, built to jam enemy transmissions, to attack enemy networks instead. “We’ve conducted a series of demonstrations,” said Maj. Gen. Burke Wilson, commander of the 24th Air Force, the service’s cyber operators. “Lo and behold! Yes, we’re able to touch a target and manipulate a target, [i.e.] a network, from an air[craft].” What’s more, Wilson told reporters at the Air Force Association conference here, this flying wireless attack can “touch a network that in most cases might be closed” to traditional means. While he didn’t give details, many military networks around the world are deliberately disconnected from the Internet (“air-gapped”) for better security. You can try to get an agent or dupe to bring a virus-infected thumb drive to work, as reportedly happened with Stuxnet’s penetration of the Iranian nuclear program, but that takes time and […]
