US officials blame North Korea, but absolute attribution in Sony hack may be elusive – Yahoo News

“Its like a scientisttheyre doing experiments all the time: trying this, trying that, trying this, trying that,” Canfield says. When companies do detect fraud, its critical to act quickly. “You really have to drop everything and get your engineering department to quickly make adjustments yourself and as quickly as possible find a fraud vendor or a partner who can help protect you,” he says. Startups may tend to focus more on building their products and services than preventing fraud, Canfield says.

Malware believed to hit Sony studio contained a cocktail of badness | Ars Technica

The details are mostly of interest to IT administrators and security people responsible for maintaining and defending the networks of large organizations. The advisory included cryptographic hash digests of each malware component, the IP addresses of outside servers infected machines connect to, and other signs of compromise. The release also included recommendations other US companies should follow to prevent sustaining the same catastrophic attack. The recommendations, however, largely consisted of general advice such as running antivirus software, installing security updates in a timely fashion, and enforcing strong password policies, things all organizations should already have been doing.

Even then, it’s often impossible to assign blame with 100 percent accuracy. By Jaikumar Vijayan 6 hours ago Content preferences Done The speed at which US officials identified North Korean involvement in the Sony Pictures Entertainment hack surprised many experts familiar with the enormous challenges of pinpointing the origins of cyberattacks. Even though unnamed US officials told The New York Times and other media outlets that North Korea was centrally involved, the government has not revealed any evidence, leaving many within the computer security community wondering how and why it came to that conclusion so quickly. These kinds of investigations can take months to piece together, especially one following a major hack such as the Sony attack. Recommended: Inside North Korea: more circus than bread For instance,US indictments against five members of the Peoples Liberation Army of China on various hacking-related charges earlier this year, came only after years of painstaking effort following digital breadcrumbs.

But overall, we’d love to see a thousand Pirate Bays,” Mr 10100100000 told the publication. The future isn’t certain for the website and loyal community which has grown around it, but we aren’t likely to see the website’s image disappear from the Web any time soon. According to The Pirate Bay crew member, talks are going on behind the scenes on how best to proceed. “The people behind TPB are like one big collective mind,” Mr 10100100000 said.

Sneaky Impersonator Robots Are Taking Over the Web – Yahoo Finance

More traffic is coming from impersonator botsrogue bots masked by proxy servers, data-stealing spy bots, bots that hide by making themselves look like legitimate search engine crawlers, and bots designed to knock out network access that have “browser-like characteristics.” Incapsula estimates that traffic from this class of robots swelled nearly 10 percent since last year. It’s the only bot category that’s grown for three straight years, the firm said: “These numbers confirm what many security experts already know: Hacker tools are increasingly being designed for stealth.” Bad bots of all kinds account for 29 percent of all website visits, whereas good bots account for 27 percent, Incapsula found. Yes, bots can solve captchas, they can tweet , they can avoid cookies-based security measures. ( They’re really easy to deploy, too.

Delta is slashing service by 85 percent starting Aug. 1, replacing its daily roundtrip flight between Atlanta and Caracas with one roundtrip weekend flight, according to spokeswoman Sarah Lora. Lora declined to say how much money Delta has stuck in Venezuela. Airlines have been unable to convert their Venezuelan earnings into dollars because of the government’s hold on repatriation of airline revenue.

Security professionals looked at the code structure, the language setting and time zone, and then looked at what infrastructure the malware was using to communicate, the professional said. In the end, a singular IP address in Bolivia seemed to match the server used in the DarkSeoul attack, while two others led to Singapore and Thailand. Because North Korea is highly controlled in its connection to the outside world, links back to it are almost always to proxies or presumed connections to the country, the security professional said. Beyond the technical commonalities, the professional said, the circumstantial evidence was strong, including a June declaration by the North Korean foreign ministry that the movie would be considered an “act of war.” It wasn’t immediately clear how the U.S.

AP source: US probe links NKorea to Sony hacking – Yahoo News

official said Wednesday, though it remained unclear how the federal government would respond to a break-in that exposed sensitive documents and ultimately led to terrorist threats against moviegoers. The official, who said a more formal statement might come soon, spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to openly discuss an ongoing criminal case. A security professional with knowledge of the breach also said investigators had strong circumstantial evidence and technical commonalities pointing to North Korea. Until Wednesday, the Obama administration had been saying it was not immediately clear who might have been responsible for the computer break-in. North Korea has publicly denied it was involved, though it did issue a statement earlier this month describing the hack as a “righteous deed.” The unidentified hackers had demanded that Sony cancel its release of the movie “The Interview,” a comedy that included a gruesome scene depicting the assassination of North Korea’s leader.

Pirate Bay Turns 10

“We, the IsoHunt.to team, copied the base of The Pirate Bay in order to save it to the generations of users,” a blog post said . “Nothing will be forgotten. Keep on believing, keep on sharing!” The mirror site, which was launched in an effort to keep torrents accessible, not to cause confusion, is missing many original Pirate Bay torrents, according to TorrentFreak . VIEW ALL PHOTOS IN GALLERY “We saw a lot of topics where people are looking for something like this,” IsoHunt told the news blog. “For sure it has some bugs and glitches but we are going to improve it. The tool is for the users’ convenience till TPB comes alive again.” VentureBeat, meanwhile, called the new service “much more than just a working archive of The Pirate Bay,” adding that popular searches unsurprisingly reveal content overlaps between isoHunt.to and oldpiratebay.org. The original incarnation of the popular torrenting site was wiped by police during a raid in Stockholm last Tuesday.

previous generation adapters, which is critical to scale transaction-heavy and clustered applications and workloads such as telco, Web-scale and messaging environments. The Lenovo VFA5 adapters support FCoE offload, which accelerates storage protocol processing, and deliver up to 1.5 million I/O operations per second (IOPS), which is 2x better than previous generation adapters, enabling the servers processing resources to focus on applications and improve the servers performance1. The Lenovo VFA5 adapters also support iSCSI offload, providing performance that is superior to iSCSI solutions based on software initiators and standard NICs, and support TCIP/IP and iSCSI or FCoE offloads on the same port (i.e. concurrent storage). FoCE and iSCSI offloads are available through Feature on Demand (FoD), which allows customers to lower their costs by allowing them to initially purchase a NIC and upgrade as their needs grow.

Pirate Bay Blocked, Proxy Servers Shut Down During Swedish Police Raid | The Inquisitr News

But to spare onlookers’ blushes (and a potential brush with the law), those taking part in what was dubbed the #PornProtest on Twitter remained fully clothed. The new regulations, which came into force on December 1, ban various acts being depicted in online pornography produced in the United Kingdom, including face-sitting, female ejaculation and spanking, in part to protect children from being exposed to potentially harmful content. However, they do not make it illegal for people to watch videos produced outside Britain or to perform the acts themselves. One of the protest organizers is Charlotte Rose, winner of the UK sex worker of the year title in 2013 and a free-speech advocate.
