Months after being hacked and getting all its secrets leaked online, the spyware vendor Hacking Team is still in business—but struggling to survive. Now, the Italian government has dealt the embattled company another blow. The government authority who oversees the export of “dual use” technologies, which can be used both for civilian as well as military purposes, revoked Hacking Team’s “global authorization” to export its spyware at the end of March. The Italian Ministry of Economic Development (also known as MISE) said in a press release that the company would now have to get an ”individual” license. Eric Rabe, Hacking Team’s spokesperson, confirmed the news on Tuesday, after the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano first reported of the revocation. “Yes, the global license has been suspended by MISE but Hacking Team still has approvals for all countries within the EU, and the company also expects to be given approvals for sales to countries outside the EU,” Rabe said in an email to Motherboard. “We can sell everywhere in Europe without a license. We can sell everywhere in the world but we have to ask for a license every time we sell.” Years before the hack, researchers were able to reveal […]

In Hacking Team’s wake, FinFisher spyware rises in popularity with government users

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The notorious FinFisher spyware is rising in popularity with government agencies across the world and 32 countries have been identified as users. FinFisher is a sophisticated spyware suite sold exclusively to government agencies and police forces. The user-friendly software is able to remotely control any computer it infects, copy files, intercept Skype calls and log keystrokes, among other functions. Developed by Munich-based FinFisher Gamma Group, the software is touted as a way to “help government law enforcement and intelligence agencies identify, locate and convict serious criminals.” However, a data breach which took place in August last year placed scrutiny on the secretive firm’s business practices and clients. Stolen files placed on the web suggested FinFisher was being used for activities beyond tracking criminals — such as spying upon high-profile Bahraini activists. It is believed that dissidents, law firms, journalists and political opposition in Bahrain and from Ethiopia have also been monitored through FinFisher. Citizen Lab, an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the University of Toronto, is well-known for research into global security and human rights issues. In a fresh investigation tracking users of the spyware suite, Citizen Lab said 32 countries contain at least one government entity who is “likely” using […]

Police Nab Korean-Chinese Hacker Suspected of Developing Mobile Spyware

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

SEOUL, Aug. 20 (Korea Bizwire) — A Korean-Chinese hacker has been arrested on suspicion of developing mobile spyware that can not only steal one’s financial data but also bug Android smartphones, police said Wednesday. Seoul Gwanak Police Station said the 27-year-old Seo was arrested on Aug. 5 in southern Seoul on charges of developing spyware that can be used for various means of crime, including phone fraud, gambling sites and phone-tapping. An online gambling site operator, surnamed Song, was also arrested on the same day for allegedly using the program to manage the Web site from December 2014 to May 2015. After learning computer programming in Yanbian, a Chinese city bordering North Korea, the 27-year-old hacker moved to South Korea, dissatisfied with the pay he earned in China. Seo is also accused of siphoning the personal data of some 180,000 people by hacking into local Web sites from 2012 to July 2014. “Android smartphone users should always update the operating system to the latest version and make sure they don’t click on suspicious links,” a police officer said.
