Do you have a #jailbroken #Apple TV running #Kodi? You are in #danger of being #hacked!

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The Apple TV has long been a wonderful device for consuming media on your big-screen television. From video to music, it is a great experience. Some people weren’t satisfied with the default functionality, however, opting to jailbreak Apple’s media box. In fact, the jailbroken Apple TV 2 was one of the most popular XBMC/Kodi boxes for this reason.

Are you running one of those jailbroken Apple TV 2 devices? You should be worried then. You see, as the folks over at TVAddons warn, the jailbreak process installed OpenSSH by default. This means your network could be compromised by the fairly outdated media box. A hacker only needs your ip address to attack you.

“Under normal circumstances, most people are aware of the need to set a strong password on their computer. However, in this circumstance, most users aren’t aware that their jailbroken Apple TV 2 is a computer that can be programmed for any purpose. Anyone who gains access to your insecured [sic] jailbroken Apple TV 2 device could run code to do things like send spam, DDoS, or even infiltrate your phone and personal computer,” says TVAddons.

The group also says, “Who’s to blame? We hate to say it, but the company behind the popular Seas0npass jailbreak for Apple TV 2 should have known better. For years Firecore distributed what was the only method of jailbreaking the Apple TV 2, and knowingly chose to include OpenSSH with the jailbreak. They should have seen this coming, and given the user the chance to change the SSH password at the time of jailbreak. Instead they likely turned a blind eye in order to make things simple for the average joe, to whom they also tried to upsell other premium apps.”

Before you get too scared, just know that disconnecting the jailbroken Apple TV 2 from your network will take away the threat. In other words, if you don’t use it, just get rid of it — it is outdated anyway. If you are still using it, however, you can just change the default root password to secure yourself — easy peasy.

Stop Everything And Watch This Baby Running Off With A Recording Phone

It’s one thing to have your cell phone stolen; it’s another to have it done by a laughing baby.

An endearing YouTube video captured a wobbly-legged bandit leading a frantic, giggle-filled chase while running through a home with the recording phone pointed at the baby’s hysterical face.

At one point the baby stumbles and nearly loses the prized possession before getting back up with a smile and taking off again. Trailing close behind is the baby’s presumed mom who can’t help but laugh along.

Hacker gets Windows RT 8.1 (WinPE) running on a Lumia 520

Hacker gets Windows RT 8.1 (WinPE) running on a Lumia 520

Recently, we reported about Windows Phone Internals, a new tool from Heathcliff. The tool allows users to unlock the bootloader of a few Lumia devices and flash custom ROMs on their Lumia device. The tool currently supports a few Lumia devices, including the Lumia 520, 521, 525,  620, 625, 720, 820, 920, 925, 928,  1020 and 1320. Obviously, the tool is pretty risky, and may damage your device if you don’t have much knowledge about custom ROMs and bootloaders. With that being said, the tool can allow users to do some crazy things on their Lumia devices. It seems like XDA member Wack0Distractor was able to getWINDOWS 8.1 RT (6.3.9600 WinPE) running on their Lumia….520. For those unfamiliar with WinPE, it’s theWINDOWS Preinstallation Environment. Thanks to @Heathcliff74 and co. for WPinternals, without that, this wouldn’t have been possible! After patching signature checks out of winload, and adding the halexts andREGISTRY ENTRIES for those, I had to patch 1 byte in the kernel, without which a SECURITY_SYSTEM bugcheck happens during boot. I haven’t fully added any drivers yet, other than the halexts, i’ll be doing that soon. So right now touchscreen doesn’t work etc. I will probably try to get some driversWORKING in this WinPE then nothing more, this was […]

Talk Talk has conceded that it could face a compensation bill running into millions for customers whose bank accounts were raided after the telecoms company was targeted in a huge cyber-attack. The company, which has been accused of ignoring warnings that it was vulnerable to such attacks, has admitted that personal data belonging to all its four million customers could have been compromised. Talk Talk says it is now preparing to investigate thousands of cases in which customers say they have either had their bank accounts raided directly, or have lost money after being persuaded to hand over access to their home computers. It emerged last night that: * The latest cyber-attack on Talk Talk began as early as September 10, but have only just been made public * There have been at least three attacks on data belonging to Talk Talk customers in the last ten months * Victims have told The Telegraph they have lost life savings and valuable possessions as a result of being scammed following the data breaches * Scotland Yard has launched a major investigation into the hacking attack, including a ransom demand sent to the firm’s chief executive Talk Talk revealed on Thursday evening […]

Police just arrested 4 men suspected of running scams tied to one of the biggest data breaches in history

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

US and Israeli law enforcement officials have arrested four men for suspected involvement in cyber blackmail and stock manipulation scams believed to be tied to the 2014 JPMorgan data breach. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported the arrests of Anthony Murgio, Yuri Lebedev, Gery Shalon and Ziv Orenstein and late on Tuesday. Bitcoin ‘ransomware’ Murgio and Lebedev are believed to have run an illegal Bitcoin money laundering exchange. (Bitcoins are a cryptographic currency that facilitate semi-anonymous transactions online.) The exchange was reportedly in violation of US federal anti-money laundering (AML) laws and made money by charging customers, many of which the FBI believe are engaged in criminal activity, to swap cash for Bitcoins. The FBI claims Murgio specifically exchanged cash for Bitcoins for victims of “ransomware” – a form of malware that locks victims out of their computer and demands they pay an unlock fee, often in Bitcoins. If true this would make him a co-conspirator in the illegal cyber blackmail operations. The FBI estimates the exchange earned the two at least $1.8m between October 2013 and January 2015. The specific charges against the two are: Conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business. Operating an unlicensed money […]
