Weight Loss Scams [Video]

Weight Loss Scams byline AARP Nearly half of American adults and well over half of American women are trying to lose weight, according to a 2018 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Those figures fuel a $70 billion weight-loss industry — and a widespread trade in dubious products that will reduce only your bank account. Diet scams rank No. 1 among health care frauds reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with on-the-make marketers deploying a variety of tricks to get people to purchase their wares. Some create websites that look like those of legitimate magazines and news organizations and fill them with phony articles claiming that celebrities have achieved amazing results from their products. The FTC recently obtained a $500,000...

Explosion of online child sexual abuse imagery [Video]

Child sexual abuse images and online exploitation surge during the pandemic With tech companies' moderation efforts constrained by the pandemic, distributors of child sexual exploitation material are growing bolder, using major platforms to try to draw audiences. The coronavirus pandemic has led to a spike in reports of child sexual exploitation material on the internet, with some of it lurking on major tech platforms. Claire Merchlinsky / for NBC News Michael Oghia was on a Zoom videoconference with about 20 climate activists last week when someone hijacked the presenter's screen to show a video of explicit pornography involving an infant. "It took me a moment to process it," said Oghia, advocacy and engagement manager at the Global Forum for Media Developments. "At fi...

Any Indian DigiLocker Account Couldve Been Accessed Without Password

The Indian Government said it has addressed a critical vulnerability in its secure document wallet service Digilocker that could have potentially let a remote attacker bypass mobile one-time passwords (OTP) and sign in as other users.Discovered separately by two independent bug bounty researchers, Mohesh Mohan and Ashish Gahlot, the vulnerability could have been exploited easily to unauthorisedly access sensitive documents uploaded by targeted users' on the Government-operated platform."The OTP function lacks authorization which makes it possible to perform OTP validation with submitting any valid users details and then manipulation flow to sign in as a totally different user," Mohesh Mohan said in a disclosure shared with The Hacker News. With over 38 million registered users, Digiloc...

Magecart Targets Emergency Services-related Sites via Insecure S3 Buckets

Hacking groups are continuing to leverage misconfigured AWS S3 data storage buckets to insert malicious code into websites in an attempt to swipe credit card information and carry out malvertising campaigns.In a new report shared with The Hacker News, cybersecurity firm RiskIQ said it identified three compromised websites belonging to Endeavor Business Media last month that are still hosting JavaScript skimming code — a classic tactic embraced by Magecart, a consortium of different hacker groups who target online shopping cart systems.The unpatched affected websites host emergency services-related content and chat forums catering to firefighters, police officers, and security professionals, per RiskIQ.www[.]officer[.]com www[.]firehouse[.]com www[.]securityinfowatch[.]com The cyber fir...

Security Drift – The Silent Killer

Global spending on cybersecurity products and services is predicted to exceed $1 trillion during the period of five years, between 2017 to 2021, with different analysts predicting the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) at anywhere between 8 to 15%.It is not surprising to see this growth in spending, which is primarily driven by the evolving sophistication and volume of attacks as well as the surmounting costs of a successful data breach.And yet, data breaches continue.The sad news is that about 80% of data breaches can be prevented with basic actions; such as vulnerability assessments, patching, and proper security configurations.The specific reasons vary; but include staffing and resource issues, lack of expertise to optimize complex, multi-vendor security systems, and a host of other ...

Looking at Big Threats Using Code Similarity. Part 1

Today, we are announcing the release of KTAE, the Kaspersky Threat Attribution Engine. This code attribution technology, developed initially for internal use by the Kaspersky Global Research and Analysis Team, is now being made available to a wider audience. You can read more about KTAE in our official press release, or go directly to its info page on the Kaspersky Enterprise site. From an internal tool, to prototype and product, this is a road which took about 3 years. We tell the story of this trip below, while throwing in a few code examples as well. However, before diving into KTAE, it’s important to talk about how it all started, on a sunny day, approximately three years ago. May 12, 2017, a Friday, started in a very similar fashion to many other Fridays: I woke up, made coffee, ...

SMBleed: A New Critical Vulnerability Affects Windows SMB Protocol

Cybersecurity researchers today uncovered a new critical vulnerability affecting the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol that could allow attackers to leak kernel memory remotely, and when combined with a previously disclosed "wormable" bug, the flaw can be exploited to achieve remote code execution attacks.Dubbed "SMBleed" (CVE-2020-1206) by cybersecurity firm ZecOps, the flaw resides in SMB's decompression function — the same function as with SMBGhost or EternalDarkness bug (CVE-2020-0796), which came to light three months ago, potentially opening vulnerable Windows systems to malware attacks that can propagate across networks.The newly discovered vulnerability impacts Windows 10 versions 1903 and 1909, for which Microsoft today released security patches as part of its monthly Patch T...

Misconfigured Databases Targeted Hours After Deployment

Researchers left a poorly configured database open on the Internet to learn who would connect to it and what they would steal.Misconfigured databases are subject to attack hours after they appear online, Comparitech researchers report. The team sought to learn more about how attackers target poorly secured cloud databases, which continue to pose a security risk to organizations around the world. Cloud configuration mistakes, which occur when cloud-related systems or assets aren't properly configured, can grant attackers access to troves of corporate data. In the past few years, several businesses have accidentally left these databases open to the Internet, sometimes exposing up to billions of records. Unsecured and misconfigured servers can leak sensitive user data, which unauthorized thir...
