Alleged bank vault robber posed with cash on Instagram, Facebook – Naked Security

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Somebody really needs to write a rap about yobs who show off piles of loot in their social media feeds.

The alleged crook du jour: Arlando M. Henderson, 29, of Charlotte, North Carolina, whom the FBI has arrested and charged with supposedly stealing more than $88,000 smackers from the vaults of his employer, Wells Fargo Bank.

If he’s innocent, Henderson is going to have to explain why his Instagram rap shows him holding an AK-47 and large stacks of cash… and how in the world he found the wherewithal to pick up that Mercedes-Benz in his Facebook posts.

On Friday, the US Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina said that the FBI arrested Henderson on 4 December in San Diego and charged him with stealing cash from Wells Fargo’s bank vaults, from deposits made by its customers, and with using some of that beautiful green spray-o-cash…

 

…for a down payment on the sweet Mercedes-Benz, and then lying to get a car loan to pay the balance. He allegedly convinced the loan company that he was good for the dough by showing them bogus bank statements.

Instagram stalker app Ghosty yanked from Play store – Naked Security

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Ever wanted to view hidden profiles on Instagram? To stalk users who’ve chosen to make their profiles private?

Up until Tuesday morning, you could do that by using a stalker service called Ghosty. Here’s what the app developer promised on versions available on Google Play and Apple’s App Store:

Ghosty – View Hidden Instagram Profile. You can view all the profiles you want to view including hidden profiles on Instagram. You can download or share photos or videos from your Instagram profiles to your gallery. In addition, you will soon be able to access many new features related to your instagram account.

“Soon” won’t come for the app, the logo for which was the profile of snooper extraordinaire Sherlock Holmes. Ghosty was removed from Google’s Play store after Android Police found the service creating what the publication called a “stalker paradise.” Nor could I find it on Apple’s store.

In that stalker paradise/privacy dystopia, anyone could view the many private profiles Ghosty amassed by signing up users who handed over their own accounts’ data – including whatever private accounts those users follow.

As Android Police tells it, this was the deal you had to make with the devil: in order to view whatever private accounts Ghosty had managed to crowd-source, you handed over your Instagram login credentials. You also had to invite at least one other person to Ghosty in order to view private profiles. Thus did Ghosty keep expanding the pool of content it could show its users: if any of those users followed a private account, that profile got added to the content Ghosty would make available.

Android Police noted that when it looked into the app, the media outlet managed to skip past that invitation step and was still able to view at least one private profile.

Not only was the service brazenly exploiting users’ desires to get at private accounts; it was also charging them for bundles or flinging ads at them.

Ghosty isn’t new; it appeared on the Play Store in April 2019. It had been downloaded over half a million times as of 13 November.

That’s a long time for an app to be amassing content while breaking Instagram’s rules. The relevant terms of service clause that forbids what Ghosty was up to:

You can’t attempt to buy, sell, or transfer any aspect of your account (including your username) or solicit, collect, or use login credentials or badges of other users.

As Android Police points out, during the half year that Ghosty was operating, neither Facebook (Instagram’s owners) nor Google apparently did anything about it – at least, not until now.

#deepweb | Instagram now supports dark mode on iOS 13 — here’s how to enable it

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.

Instagram has joined the dark side. Well, not really, sort of. The Facebook-owned social media platform has updated its app for iOS 13 with support for dark mode.

The setting is an extension of iOS‘ system-wide dark mode, and Instagram has basically revamped its UI to match the theme.

In case you haven’t already caught a glimpse, here’s what it looks like:

No surprises there, it’s the standard combo of black and grey, mixed with white text and icon layouts.

How to turn on dark mode

To get the dark look, you’ll need to enable iOS 13‘s own dark mode. That seems to be the only way for now, since Instagram has yet to include a native switch in its app.

Anyways, here are the steps you need to follow:

  • Pull the control center on your iPhone
  • Long-press on the brightness indicator
  • Select dark mode from the toggle options below to enable it
  • Boom! You’re done

Alternatively, you can ask Siri to enable dark mode by uttering the magic phrase “Hey Siri, turn on/off the dark mode.”

A third way to do it is by going to Settings > Display & Brightness, and then tapping on the “Dark” theme option. As easy as that.

Once you’ve used any of these three approaches, Instagram will automatically switch to dark mode too.

Unfortunately, Instagram‘s dark mode is currently exclusively available on iOS. Don’t fret, though: it seems that the Facebook subsidiary is testing the feature on Android, so chances are it’ll make its way to Google’s operating system soon.
