#hacking | International police arrest two after WeLeakInfo takedown

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Search engine for leaked passwords shut down

Police have seized WeLeakInfo.com, an online service that turned selling access to data exposed by breaches into a business.

The site offered subscription-based access to billions of compromised user login credentials, essentially offering a search engine for breached personal data including names, email addresses, phone numbers, IP address, and passwords.

A joint law enforcement action led by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), in collaboration with international law enforcement partners including the FBI and the East Netherland Cyber Crime Unit (Politie), has led to the seizure of the domain and the arrest of two suspects.

A 22-year-old male was arrested in Fintona, Northern Ireland by the country’s police service on suspicion of fraud and serious crime offences before being released on bail, pending further inquiries.

Another man, also 22, was arrested in Vriendin, The Netherlands, by Dutch authorities.

Neither suspect has been named but police allege the duo made £200,000 ($261,000) through the dodgy site they ran together.

The pair became suspects after police traced online payments for hosting and other services linked to the site back to IP addresses used by the two men.

Police also established “links between the purchase of cybercrime tools, such as remote access Trojans (RATs) and cryptors, and weleakinfo.com.”

Robert Ramsden-Board, VP EMEA at Securonix, commented in a press release: “Weleakinfo.com was a useful resource for threat actors.

“Hackers could perform unlimited searches for exposed data for as little as $2 a day.

“Hence, providing them with all the information they would need, such as exposed usernames and passwords, to be able to perform credential stuffing attacks and phishing attacks.”

The FBI took ownership of the WeLeakInfo.com domain name and added a notice stating it was seized.

Prior to the takedown, police allege that the site hosted credentials taken from around 10,000 data breaches. The details were used in subsequent cyber-attacks in an unspecified number of cases.

Although WeLeakInfo.com has been taken out of commission, other similar services exist and may well expand to fill the gap in the market occasioned by a rival’s takedown.

In a blog post, security industry veteran Graham Cluley explains the difference between WeLeakInfo and legitimate services like Troy Hunt’s HaveIBeenPwned. The latter only offers warnings – free of charge – that a person’s email address and associated info has been part of a breach without ever storing or offering access to passwords.

International Workshop on Future Information, Security, Privacy and Forensic for Complex Systems (FISP)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 August 13 – 15, 2018 | Gran Canaria, Spain

Cybersecurity Conference Description

Availability, integrity and secrecy of complex information systems are increasingly important requirements for modern society as well as nations as with every passing day computers control and administer more and more aspects of human life. We entrust much of our lives to information and computer technologies (ICT’s). However, it is difficult and challenging task to understand security risk and to provide effective security solution as attackers only need to find a single vulnerability but developers or system administrators need to find and fix all vulnerabilities. In addition, cyber space is considered as fifth battle-field after land, air, water and space.

The aim of FISP-2018 is to provide a premier international platform for wide range of professions including scholars, researchers, academicians and Industry people to discuss and present the most recent challenges and developments in “Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems” from the perspective of providing security awareness and its best practices for the real world. After the high success of the previous edition (FISP’2017) in conjunction with 12th International Conference on Future Networks and Communications 2017 (FNC-2017), Belgium, the fourth International Workshop on Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems (FISP-2018) will continue to open to submit novel and high quality research contributions as well as state of the art reviews in the field of information security and privacy. We anticipate that this workshop will open new entrance for further research and technology improvements in this important area.

International Conference on Smart Grid and Internet of Things (SGIoT)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 July 11 – 13, 2018 | Ontario, Canada

Cybersecurity Conference Description

The IoT is a grand vision as it ascribes the concept of millions of interconnected intelligent devices that can communicate with one another, and thereby control the world around us. Technically speaking, the smart grid can be considered to be an example of the IoT composed of embedded machines, which sense and control the behavior of the energy world. The IoT-driven smart grid is currently a hot area of research boosted by the global need to improve electricity access, economic growth of emerging countries, and the worldwide power plant capacity additions. GlobalData, a renowned consulting firm, forecasted that the global power transformer market is anticipated to increase from $10.3 billion in 2013 to $19.7 billion in 2020, with an astounding compound annual growth rate of 9.6 percent due to the phenomenal rise in energy demand in China, India and the Middle East. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest research initiative, e.g., through our event, in the IoT-dominated smart grid sector.

In addition to its timeliness, the event comprises a broad range of interests. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of resources based largely on the IoT-based machine-to-machine (M2M) interactions of millions of smart meters and sensors in the smart grid specific communication networks such as home area networks, building area networks, and neighborhood area networks. The smart grid also encompasses IoT technologies, which monitor transmission lines, manage substations, integrate renewable energy generation (e.g., solar or wind), and utilize hybrid vehicle batteries. Through these technologies, the authorities can smartly identify outage problems, and intelligently schedule the power generation and delivery to the customers. Furthermore, the smart grid should teach us a valuable lesson that security must be designed in from the start of any IoT deployment. Since there is an alarming lack of standards to address the protection of the secret keys and/or the life-cycle security of the embedded smart grid devices, intruders could use conventional attack techniques to breach the security just as in any other IoT deployment.
