A third of pirated movie sites spread malicious software, report says

You might want to think twice before you try to watch a pirated copy of of the new Star Wars movie online. Aside from the fact that the film will probably be way better on a big screen with surround sound, a new report finds that many websites set up to distribute pirated movies and TV shows spread malicious malware. Cybersecurity firm RiskIQ probed a sample of 800 piracy websites and found that one in three contain malware that can expose a user to identity theft, financial loss, and hackers taking control of their computer. Internet users who visited piracy sites were 28 times more likely to get malware from so-called torrent sites than from licensed or mainstream media websites. Almost half the time, the malware was delivered by “drive-by downloads,” meaning the malicious software was triggered just by visiting a site — users did not have to click again or actually download a video to get infected. Once hackers gain access into a computer, they can steal bank and credit card data or personal information, which can be sold in an underground market. Another tactic some hackers use is to lock a person out of their computer and demand […]

Third party tracking ‘still legal,’ according to FCC

Third party tracking ‘still legal,’ according to FCC

Third-party web tracking is still legal, a new ruling has found. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has dismissed a petitionby Consumer Watchdog that would forbid Internet companies from tracking consumers. According to the FCC, the petition was inconsistent with its rules on Internet bias. The petition was part of an ongoing movement to protect consumers who don’t want to be tracked by third-party web trackers, and aimed to provide consumers with a “Do Not Track” setting in theirWEB BROWSERS. Some companies are already committed to honoring “Do Not Track” requests sent in by consumers. But others, like Google, Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, Netflix, and LinkedIn rely on third-party tracking to store data on consumers for data analytics, advertising networks and social networking platforms. For example, you click on a cat video, and soon yourFACEBOOK PAGE will be advertising cat products to you. How does third-party tracking work? It all begins with an innocent “cookie,” a small bit of data loaded onto aWEB BROWSER. Every time a user opens a new web page, a cookie is sent back to the browser to monitor any previous activity. For the most part, cookies are safe: they can’t contain viruses and help store data. But, […]

Hacker/troll “weev” was charged in the wrong federal court – say The Third US Circuit Court of Appeals

A federal appeals court Friday reversed and vacated the conviction and sentence of hacker and Internet troll Andrew “weev” Auernheimer.

The case against Auernheimer, who has often been in solitary confinement for obtaining and disclosing personal data of about 140,000 iPad owners from a publicly available AT&T website, was seen as a test case on how far the authorities could go under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the same law that federal prosecutors were invoking against Aaron Swartz.

Auernheimer was accused of passing along the e-mail addresses to Gawker, which thereafter published the information in redacted form in 2010. Auernheimer was convicted in a New Jersey federal court of a felony under the CFAA for conspiracy to access AT&T’s servers against the company’s will.

The government argued that the New Jersey court was a proper venue for the case because 4,500 e-mail addresses were obtained from residents there. The authorities claimed that even if the venue was improper, is should be disregarded because it did “not affect substantial rights.”
The court disagreed and suggested that Auernheimer’s home state of Arkansas, where the alleged illegal activity took place, was the proper location for trial

Auernheimer’s  helped co-defendant Daniel Spitler who discovered a security vulnerability in the website used to register iPad users who signed up for AT&T’s 3G service. A script on AT&T’s servers would accept an iPad’s ICC-ID—a unique identifier embedded in the device’s microSIM card—and return that user’s e-mail address. Spitler figured out that ICC-IDs come in a predictable range, allowing him to enumerate the tens of thousands of them and obtain the corresponding e-mail addresses. And Auernheimer was accused of providing Spitler with advice and encouragement over IRC, and later disclosed the information Spitler obtained to the media.

Spitler pleaded guilty and was sentenced in January to three years probation.

While the court would not resolve whether Auernheimer’s conduct was illegal, it commented that “no evidence was advanced at trial” that “any password gate or other code-based barrier” was breached.
A day before his sentencing, Auernheimer commented last year that his only “regret is being nice enough to give AT&T a chance to patch before dropping the dataset to Gawker. I won’t nearly be as nice next time.”

Now Auernheimer is waiting to listen his charges when the right court will be chosen for him against his crime.

Third suspect in Northampton credit card fraud arrested, cops say

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Northampton Borough police have arrested the third person sought in a credit card fraud scheme, and they say he also broke into a vehicle and stole belongings. Cullen C. Konya, 19, of the 1700 block of Lincoln Avenue in Northampton, remained Friday in Northampton County Prison facing 22 charges in three separate incidents in the borough, records say. In the vehicle break-in, residents on Northampton Avenue reported seeing a male — later identified through a photo lineup as Konya — park July 19 across the street from their home, walk south and reappear carrying a backpack and large purse, court records say. One of the residents recognized the purse as belonging to a neighbor, and told police the male put both bags into his car, records say. Konya then tried a door on the residents’ car parked in their driveway but ran when one of the residents yelled at him, according to Northampton police. Police responded, and the woman whose purse was believed stolen identified the purse and her work bag inside Konya’s vehicle, a white Toyota, court records say. Investigators also confirmed her vehicle had been entered. Police said they also found in the car a wallet with identification […]
