    Through eBay

    If buying through eBay any emails from it will be in your eBay messages folder. Be aware that phishing scams are rife about eBay, along with a host of others including utility providers and banks. Some such scam messages which have been reported on and sent to thousands of internet users say that the intended victim’s eBay account has been suspended. To revive it the recipient is instructed to click into a link which may then display high ticket items supposedly for sale at improbably low prices. Such scams are nothing to do with eBay.

    Also to be treated with deep suspicion are any claims about eBay’s buyer protection for the purchaser of a vehicle or any mention of ‘vehicle protection’. eBay’s ‘buyer protection’ generally only applies to something that can be posted and is being paid for in the required way. It does not cover vehicles in the UK. Also regard with healthy scepticism an eBay seller who says their PayPal account isn’t working as an excuse for the payment to be made in a less secure way.


    If you are uneasy about an email purporting to come from PayPal send it to Log into your own PayPal account and check any messages. PayPal’s customer service line is on 0800 3587911. Often such fraudulent communications style PayPal’s name wrongly or are otherwise of low quality – although if it is right that won’t be proof the email is genuine.

    PayPal adds that one of the ways in which you will kn...


    Although the number of malicious browser extensions has significantly increased in the past year many security products fail to offer adequate protection against them, while others are simply not designed to do so, according to a security researcher.

    Attackers have already used such extensions to perform click fraud by inserting rogue advertisements into websites or by hijacking search queries, but research has shown that this type of malware has the potential to cause much more damage.

    Last year Zoltan Balazs, an IT security consultant with professional services firm Deloitte in Hungary, created a proof-of-concept malicious extension that could be controlled remotely by an attacker and could steal authentication credentials, hijack accounts, modify locally displayed Web pages, take screenshots through the computer's webcam, bypass two-factor authentication systems and even download and execute malicious files on a victim's computer.

    And last week the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) warned in its midyear report: "An increase in malicious browser extensions has been registered, aimed at taking over social network accounts."

    Earlier this year Balazs investigated how various security products protect users against malicious browser extensions and presented his findings at the OHM2013 security conference near...

  • Snowden disclosures prompt warning on widely used computer security formula

    (Reuters) - In the latest fallout from Edward Snowden's intelligence disclosures, a major U.S. computer security company warned thousands of customers on Thursday to stop using software that relies on a weak mathematical formula developed by the National Security Agency.

    RSA, the security arm of storage company EMC (EMC.N) Corp, told current customers in an email that a toolkit for developers had a default random-number generator using the weak formula, and that customers should switch to one of several other formulas in the product.

    Last week, the New York Times reported that Snowden's cache of documents from his time working for an NSA contractor showed that the agency used its public participation in the process for setting voluntary cryptography standards, run by the government's National Institute of Standards and Technology, to push for a formula that it knew it could break.

    NIST, which accepted the NSA proposal in 2006 as one of four systems acceptable for government use, this week said it would reconsider that inclusion in the wake of questions about its security.

    But RSA's warning underscores how the slow-moving standards process and industry practices could leave many users exposed to hacking by the NSA or others who could exploit the same flaw for years to come.

    RSA had no immediate comment. It was unclear how the company could reach all the former customers of its development tools, ...

    New Hampshire Housing has approved over $1 million in funding for the development of Senior Living at Notre Dame in Berlin. The funding will be used by Littleton-based AHEAD (Affordable Housing, Education, and Development) to turn the city’s historic Notre Dame high school into over 30 units of affordable housing for seniors.

    Planned renovations include lead abatement and the installation of an energy-efficient wood chip boiler.

Construction is planned to begin in October, New Hampshire Housing said.

    An email message purporting to be from The Land Registry may actually be a malicious fake and advisers or brokers that arrange mortgages could be particularly at risk, an IFA has warned.

    Neil Liversidge, managing director of West Riding Personal Financial Solutions, received an email claiming to be from The Land Registry telling him a direct debit of £208 would soon be taken from his account.

    The message went on to say details of what was to be paid could be viewed by opening an attached .zip file.

    Thinking something was amiss, Mr Liversidge called The Land Registry only to receive a recorded message warning against scam emails such as this.

    Mr Liversidge told FTAdviser advisers could be at particular risk of falling for this scam because of how genuine the message looks and the fact that intermediaries arranging mortgages would have an account with Land Registry.

    “I wouldn’t mind betting that if you open that .zip file it fishes data from your computer. Anybody who is doing mortgages is going to have some sort of dealing with The Land Registry. It isn’t an impossible amount of money and the [telephone] number [they provide] is genuine.”

    A disclaimer at the bottom of the message sent to Mr Liversidge suggests it came from Middlesborough law firm QualitySolicitors Punch Robson, most likely meaning that a contact...

    Toyota Motor Corp., Asia’s biggest automaker, gained 1 percent.

Consumer-finance company Aiful Corp. surged 18 percent on a report non-bank lending is recovering. Otsuka Holdings Co. slid 2.4 percent after Citigroup Inc. cut its investment outlook on the drugmaker.

Japan’s currency weakened 0.8 percent to 98.93 against the greenback.

    “The yen at the 98-per-dollar level today is positive for stocks,” said Masaru Hamasaki, a senior strategist at Tokyo-based Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management Co., which oversees about 11.2 trillion yen ($113 billion). “China’s PMI is also being taken positively, although whether it can last is questionable.

    Massive scams with a global scope referred to as "the forged international bank transfer order scams" have been targeting for approximately the last two years, the subsidiaries of large French companies located within the European Union or the foreign subsidiaries of companies based in France.

    From a French perspective, this phenomenon represents, over such period, more than 400 attempted or committed offences, for which the damages are estimated to exceed 200 million Euros.

    According to the Serious Financial Crime Office of the French Judicial Police (Office Central pour la Répression de la Grande Délinquance Financière de la Direction Centrale de la Police Judiciaire) (the "OCRGDF"), which has identified with great precision the modus operandi of these crooks, the authors of these offences all operate by telephone. The tracing of the fraudulent transfers has in particular enabled to determine that the funds identified to China for final destination and more particularly banks in the Zhejiang province.

    To organize their "forged international bank transfer order scams," the criminal organizations have broken down their actions into several steps:

    micron associates MA 85230508839 article code,Insight: How Samsung is beating Apple in China

    GUANGZHOU, China/SEOUL (Reuters) - Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook believes that "over the arc of time" China is a huge opportunity for his path breaking company. But time looks to be on the side of rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, which has been around far longer and penetrated much deeper into the world's most populous country.

    Apple Inc this week said its revenue in Greater China, which also includes Hong Kong and Taiwan, slumped 43 percent to $4.65 billion from the previous quarter. That was also 14 percent lower from the year-ago quarter. Sales were weighed down by a sharp drop in revenues from Hong Kong. "It's not totally clear why that occurred," Cook said on a conference call with analysts.

    Neither is it totally clear what Apple's strategy is to deal with Samsung - not to mention a host of smaller, nimbler Chinese challengers.

    Today, in the war for what both sides acknowledge is the 21st century's most important market, Samsung is whipping its American rival. The South Korean giant now has a 19 percent share of the $80 billion smartphone market in China, a market expected to surge to $117 billion by 2017, according to International Data Corp (IDC). That's 10 percentage points ahead of Apple, which has fallen to 5th in terms of China market share.

    Cook said Apple planned to double...
