Bipartisan leaders of two Senate committees have called for a whole-of-government approach to supply chain risk management for information and communications equipment through better coordination across all three branches of the government.

The letter from the chairmen and ranking minority members of the Intelligence and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees said asked the Federal Acquisition Security Council to develop a strategic information sharing plan covering Congress and the judiciary as well as the executive branch. That council was created by a law enacted last year with the goal of reducing supply chain risks by facilitating information sharing among agencies.

A letter to OMB says that Congress and the judiciary lack the expertise and resources to replicate that effort, potentially leaving them vulnerable to introducing insecure technology putting national security at risk. “The threat is not hypothetical,” the letter says.

For the judiciary, it cites warnings in the National Cyber Strategy, annual reports from the court systems highlighting the need to counter threats posed by hacking, viruses and other malicious acts, and a Center for Strategic and International Studies report calling for immediate steps to counter threats to the courts.

“Adversaries abroad have similarly targeted Congress, most recently documented in a number of attempted hacks of Senate offices. This threat goes back over a decade, with one notable incident in 2008 involving a number of congressional computers. These adversaries are likely using every tool at their disposal to compromise” the systems used by congressional offices, it says.

Man sought in credit card fraud turns himself in

Tips helped Biloxi police arrest a man suspected of credit card fraud Friday shortly after they asked for assistance, officials said. Police credited a story at SunHerald.com with the quick identification of the two. Matthew Ross Grayson, 21, turned himself in to Biloxi police and was arrested on a charge of felony credit card fraud. He was taken to the Harrison County jail on a $10,000 bond. Investigator Brock Newell said Grayson and another person were identified 45 minutes after the story went online. The two were being sought after a credit card was fraudulently used. Its owner had lost it Oct. 17 in Gulfport. The other person is believed to have fled the state, Newell said. “The victim isn’t sure exactly where he lost the card,” Newell said. “The suspects just found it and charged a bunch of stuff right away.” Source: http://www.sunherald.com/news/local/crime/article41926527.html

LoopPay hackers sought intellectual property, breach adds to mobile payment security challenges

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

LoopPay, the technology acquired by Samsung in its bid to differentiate itself from Apple Pay, was reportedly breached months ago by a Chinese hacking group looking to replicate its technology, Samsung has confirmed. The LoopPay network is physically separate from Samsung Pay, according to Samsung, and neither the phone-based payment service, nor any customer records of the service were impacted by the breach. Multiple reports suggest the breach, believed to be conducted by a China-based hacking group known as Codoso Group or Sunshock Group, was cyber espionage aimed at collecting information on the company’s technology and intellectual property rather than a cyber theft aimed at stealing data and consumer information for accessing payment accounts. Cyber espionage has been a hallmark of the Codoso hacking group. In fact, in February it was reported that the group had breached Forbes and other targets last December with capturing intellectual property as its objective once again. “These guys don’t typically just put drive-bys anywhere. They don’t want anybody’s information,” John Hultquist, senior manager of cyber espionage threat intelligence for iSight, told the site Dark Reading back in January in relation to the breaches on Forbes and others. “What they want is information associated with […]
