Half the population of Turkey potentially opened up to identity theft and privacy violations after information posted to server hosted in Romania A database posted online allegedly contains the personal information of 49 million people on the Turkish citizenship database, potentially making more than half of the population of the country vulnerable to identity theft and massive privacy violations. The database, which has not been verified as authentic, was posted to a server apparently hosted in Romania on Monday with an introduction reading “Who would have imagined that backwards ideologies, cronyism and rising religious extremism in Turkey would lead to a crumbling and vulnerable technical infrastructure?” As well as the national ID numbers for all of the entrants in the system, it also contains a large amount of other personal information, including full name and parents’ names, full address, and date of birth.

Earlier, the Metropolitan Police revealed that a second boy has been arrested in connection with the alleged attack. The 16-year-old, from Feltham in west London, was held on suspicion of computer misuse after a search of his home yesterday. The teenager has been bailed to a date yet to be confirmed.

The funds would go towards providing police with body-worn video cameras, tablet computers and mobile fingerprint scanners.

The Cyber Academy – part of the force’s Crime Prevention Academy initiative – is a public seminar running one night a week over a four-week stretch and is designed to teach participants tips and tricks to help avoiding becoming victims of criminals operating in cyberspace. More than 40 spots are available per session and the courses are taught at the Emil V. Kolb Centre for Police Excellence. “(The Cyber Academy) actually started six years ago when we started seeing an increase in crimes being run on the internet,” said Const. Yvette Logan of the crime prevention services unit. “Nowadays, pretty much any crime can be run on the internet.” “We run different academies out of this facility that deal with personal safety, home safety and things like that, but we thought we needed to isolate it and run a program that deals strictly with technology crimes and what’s happening on the internet,” she added. The program is broken up into eight sections spanning four three-hour lectures given by officers from […]
