Well Known Credit Card Company Describes a New Skimming Method

#Visa Describes New #Skimming Attack Tactics | #TpromoCom #CreditCard #Criminals | Cybercriminals Using Web Shells to Control Retailers' Servers (govinfosecurity.com) https://bit.ly/3mywxNu

The web shells enable fraudsters conducting digital skimming attacks on e-commerce sites to establish and maintain access to compromised servers, deploy additional malicious files and payloads, facilitate lateral movement within a victim's network and remotely execute commands, Visa says.

In February, Microsoft reported spotting 140,000 web shells per month on servers from August 2020 to January 2021, which it said is almost twice the number from the same period the year before. These web shells, however, were not being used for retail attacks. (read more)

Linux Systems in Peril of Hacking Hackers? Find Out Here!

New Bugs Could Let Hackers Bypass Spectre Attack Mitigations On Linux Systems
| #TpromoCom #Hacker #Linux #CyberSecurity | Cybersecurity researchers on Monday disclosed two new vulnerabilities in Linux-based operating systems that, if successfully exploited, could let attackers circumvent mitigations for speculative attacks such as Spectre and obtain sensitive information from kernel memory (thehackernews). https://bit.ly/3fn8fof

Discovered by Piotr Krysiuk of Symantec's Threat Hunter team, the flaws — tracked as CVE-2020-27170 and CVE-2020-27171 (CVSS scores: 5.5) — impact all Linux kernels prior to 5.11.8. Patches for the security issues were released on March 20, with Ubuntu, Debian, and Red Hat deploying fixes for the vulnerabilities in their respective Linux distributions.

| #TpromoCom #Hacker #CyberCrime #CyberSecurity | Every cyberattack varies in cause and damage. Despite this, they all contain key components that are applicable to both external and insider threats (informationsecuritybuzz).  
https://bit.ly/3fnBkQk

The tried and tested formula involves cyberattackers finding a way in, navigating the system, extracting information, and then exiting and covering their tracks. Learning these steps to understand the journey cyberattackers take will help you better protect your organisation from these kinds of attacks.

Why It's Important to Take Down Dark Web Sites

The Case for Taking Down Dark Web Sites

Why It's Important to Take Down Dark Web Sites | #TpromoCom #DarkWeb #CyberSecurity #CyberCrime #Hackers | Taking Down Dark Web Sites May Cause Headache for Both the Bad Guys and the Good Guys (Idan Aharonihttps://bit.ly/2QDTO4J

It’s law enforcement’s main goal to apprehend criminals, and considering it takes time to build a case of evidence, dark web boards can be a treasure trove of leads and relevant data for a case, one that keeps growing as criminals post new content. 

It makes sense for them not to touch a board until they are ready to make their move and apprehend the bigger players on a certain site, usually an international operation involving multiple local agencies.

Microsoft cyber-attack turns into global crisis


Microsoft cyber-attack turns into global crisis | #TpromoCom #CyberSecurity #CyberAttack | In this edition, we tell you more about the vast cyber-attack on Microsoft Exchange. What started as an alleged state-sponsored attack is quickly becoming a global crisis, claiming at least 60,000 victims worldwide, mainly small and medium-sized businesses (france24). http://bit.ly/2OycsKS

Several days ago, Microsoft was targeted by a massive cyber-attack. Allegedly, it all began as a Chinese state-sponsored espionage attack against specific individuals using vulnerabilities in its email software. But now, it has escalated into a devastating global hacking scheme as criminal groups rush to compromise victims before they have time to secure their systems.

We ask Adrien Gendre, associate director at Vade Secure, to tell us more about the attack and what the hackers are hunting for. (read more)

China Hijacked an NSA Hacking Tool in 2014—and Used It for Years

China Hijacked an NSA Hacking Tool in 2014—and Used It for Years | #TpromoCom #ShadowBrothers #CyberSecurityt #CCP | The #hackers used the agency’s EpMe exploit to attack Windows devices years before the Shadow Brokers leaked the agency’s zero-day arsenal online (wired). http://bit.ly/3aK443b

MORE THAN FOUR years after a mysterious group of hackers known as the Shadow Brokers began wantonly leaking secret NSA hacking tools onto the internet, the question that debacle raised—whether any intelligence agency can prevent its "zero-day" stockpile from falling into the wrong hands—still haunts the security community. 

That wound has now been reopened, with evidence that Chinese hackers obtained and reused another NSA hacking tool years before the Shadow Brokers brought it to light. (read more)

Editorial Comment:
As business people, we must take inventory of our situation in order to take advantage of every advantage. Now that Joe Biden is president, considering his recent comments upselling the value of the CCP to the American way of life, it's more important than ever to remember the things we learned over the past four years concerning China's aspiration for global dominance. We must take this in consideration when making decisions that are integral to the success or failure of our businesses and our nation. --Al Colombo

Cybersecurity expert warns about the dangers of working from home


Cybersecurity expert warns about the dangers of working from home
 | #TpromoCom | Nuclear war would require billions of dollars and years of development. But someone in a basement can pull off a devastating cyberattack that takes down the critical infrastructure for practically nothing (wrcbtv
). https://bit.ly/3a8LKQN

On computer monitors at cybersecurity companies around the country, animated world maps show live cyber-attacks happening around the world. The attacks targeting the United States are often directed at health care systems, government offices, and regular people who are working on their computers. The attacks are often administered through email attachments and links, and websites that contain links to malware. It's easy to look at those animated maps and realize we are at war.
