Ontario brothers accused in widespread Inland Valley mail thefts

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

RANCHO CUCAMONGA >> Two Ontario brothers were arrested in connection to several mail thefts across the Inland Empire, officials said Thursday. Terry Jones, 26, and Tony Jones, 24, were booked April 7 after investigators linked them to more than 250 mail theft victims, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s news release. On March 30, deputies investigated several reports of mail theft in the northeastern neighborhoods of Rancho Cucamonga, officials said. They served two search warrants in two weeks and arrested Tony and Terry Jones on suspicion of mail theft, identity theft and forgery. Investigators found check washing equipment, as well as stolen mail from Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, Ontario, Fontana and Claremont during the search, police said. “With the dramatic increase in mail theft, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department urges residents to use extreme caution when sending or receiving banking or personal information through the mail. Mail thieves use this information to forge checks and open fraudulent banking and credit card accounts,” officials said in the release.

TalkTalk hack: industry hits back after Daily Mail targets ‘gaming addict’

TalkTalk hack: industry hits back after Daily Mail targets ‘gaming addict’

The gaming industry has hit back after theDaily Mail claimed a suspect arrested in connection with the TalkTalk hack was a “violent video game addict”. The UKIE, the UK’s games industry body, told WIRED that there was “no link between addiction or antisocial behaviour” and playing games in a “balanced” way. After TalkTalk was hit by a major cyberattack — its second this year — a teenage boy from Northern Ireland was arrested on Monday and charged with offences under the Computer Misuse Act. Although the teenager, who cannot be named, has been released on bail and authorities are still investigating whether he has any connection to the ransom demands sent to TalkTalk, he has become the figurehead for one of the UK’s most significant data breaches. And his actions are already being linked to violent video games. “Games are played by millions of people safely and sensibly every day and the games industry takes its responsibility towards players, especially younger ones, seriously,” Dr Jo Twist, CEO of UKIE said in response to the Daily Mail’s claims. “Just like any other mature medium, games deal with adult themes, but the PEGI age ratings are robust and there to guide parents and children around what content is appropriate for different ages.” Source: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2015-10/28/talktalk-hacker-gamer-blame-daily-mail

HeartBleed – Critical Crypto Bug Exposes Yahoo Mail

OpenSSL is considered as a certificate for security but what when OpenSSL itself have a bug. That’s the reason Yahoo mail’s passwords were exposed. Heartbleed is a bug which is the result of a mundane coding error in OpenSSL.

OpenSSL is for implementing HTTPS encryption in websites, e-mail servers, and applications. The result of a missing bounds check in the source code, Heartbleed allows attackers to recover large chunks of private computer memory that handle OpenSSL processes. The leak is the digital equivalent of a grab bag that hackers can blindly reach into over and over simply by sending a series of commands to vulnerable servers. The returned contents could include something as banal as a time stamp, or it could return far more valuable assets such as authentication credentials or even the private key at the heart of a website’s entire cryptographic certificate.

After this bug and a huge loss to Yahoo Mail, OpenSSL developers have released version 1.0.1g that readers should install immediately on any vulnerable machines they maintain. But given the stakes and the time it takes to update millions of servers, the risks remain high.

This worked as by sending many requests at a time and get an entry into website through a hole because of heavy traffic. The bug allows to eavesdropping in a website who is using OpenSSL library.

The OpenSSL patch is only the starting point on the path of Heartbleed recovery. Website operators should strongly consider replacing their X.509 certificates after applying the update and getting all users and administrators to change passwords as well.
