Book Fair, Stop Selling All That Crap

It’s Book Fair Season and that should be a good thing but for those of us whose kids immediately do a beeline for the “non book” items, it’s not nearly as pleasant as it used to be.

In fact, the fair just might need to change its name to “Books and Random Crap Fair.” Yup, that would be a much more apt description of the modern book fair.

It’s already tiring enough to explain, again, why you will not buy your 7 year old the $40 hardcover ‘History of the Lightsaber’.

Vietnamese computer hacker gets 13 years for selling data of 200 million Americans

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A computer hacker who peddled the stolen personal data of 200 million U.S. citizens to other cybercriminals from his Vietnamese home was sentenced Tuesday to 13 years in prison. Hieu Minh Ngo pleaded guilty to a string of federal charges including wire, identity and computer fraud, reports NBC News. The 25-year-old ran a sophisticated international identity theft scheme, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. He sold the names, birth dates, Social Security numbers and bank account details of millions of Americans to other cybercriminals via shady online marketplaces. The scam, which he operated for six years from 2007 to 2013, generated about $2 million, authorities said. He was arrested when he entered the U.S. in February 2013. “Specifically, Ngo admitted he offered access to PII (personally identifiable information) for 200 million U.S. citizens, and that more than 1,300 customers from around the world conducted more than three million ‘queries’ through the third-party databases maintained on his websites,” the Justice Department said in a press release. Ngo was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Paul J. Barbadoro in New Hampshire. “Criminals buy and sell stolen identity information because they see it as a low-risk, high-reward proposition,” said Assistant Attorney General Leslie […]

How a Russian hacker made $45,000 selling a zero-day Flash exploit to Hacking Team

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

If you’re a Moscow-based zero-day exploit seller, all you have to do is e-mail a spyware company like Hacking Team out of the blue. You can go from initial, unsolicited message to getting paid tens of thousands of dollars in just a matter of weeks. After Hacking Team, the Italian spyware vendor, was itself hacked and 400GB of its internal data released onto BitTorrent, Ars reviewed internal e-mails from the company. The chain of e-mails that follow offer a rare look into exactly how new security vulnerabilities get sold to companies and governments around the globe. The Moscow vendor’s first e-mail, dated October 13, 2013, was short and to the point: Hi, is your company interested in buying zero-day vulnerabilities with RCE exploits for the latest versions of Flash Player, Silverlight, Java, Safari? All exploits allow to embed and remote execute custom payloads and demonstrate modern techniques for bypassing ASLR [address space layout randomization] and DEP [data execution prevention]-like protections on Windows, OS X, and iOS without using of unreliable ROP and heap sprays. The e-mail contained no identifying information about its sender except for the e-mail address: tovis@bk.ru. The Hacking Team response, direct from CEO David Vincenzetti, came within 24 hours: Absolutely. Would […]
