  • Reform-government-surveillance-open-letter_177_

    Kashmir Hill reported here at the end of October, to taking their case to President Obama and members of Congress directly in anopen letter published today. At risk is the public’s trust in the internet itself and all of the economic and cultural benefits it contains.

    The letter, signed by AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter and Yahoo, urges the U.S. to “take the lead and make reforms that ensure that government surveillance efforts are clearly restricted by law, proportionate to the risks, transparent and subject to independent oversight.” Microsoft’s general counsel, Brad Smith, released a statement asserting that, “People won’t use technology they don’t trust. Governments have put this trust at risk, and governments need to help restore it.”

    This is a striking development given the varying degree to which these same companies have cooperated and/or collaborated with the NSA’s data collection efforts. Clearly the balance has tipped and America’s tech companies now feel emboldened to call for sweeping reforms even as the Democratic chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein of California, is sponsoring a bill maintain the security agencies’ right to continue to collect bulk data.

    The Big-8, with a combined valuation of $1.4 trillion, are trying to convince their billions of users worldwide that they can still trust American tech companies. “For our part,” the open letter reads, “we are focused on keeping user’...

  • Vårt syn: Stivne cyber forsvar

    Når Internett-tyver oppdaget hvor enkelt det er å stjele en persons kredittkortnummer og annen verdifull informasjon, var det uunngåelig ville de søker større og mer potensielt lukrativ ofre. Den amerikanske regjeringen, for eksempel.

    Et teknologiselskap for sikkerhet ansatt av The Washington Post nylig rapportert at 115 amerikanske myndigheter og private selskaper hadde blitt hacket av kinesisk cyber spioner som opererer fra en Shanghai kontorbygg People's Liberation Army cyber-kommandoen boenhet.

    Hackere har trengt vår nasjons mest kraftfulle institusjoner, inkludert føderale byråer, militære kontraktører, congressional kontorer, nyhetsorganisasjoner og advokatfirmaer. De har infiltrated systemer som styrer våre power grid og vann systemer.

    Det reiser spørsmål om potensialet for fremtidige høyteknologiske terroranslag. Men tyvene har onde hensikter, eller var de stjele forretningshemmeligheter av ledende amerikansk innovatører i vitenskap, romfart og energi? Ingen synes å vite.

    Vi vet at hackere i mange land, inkludert vår egen, har vært snusing og stjele i år. Men kinesiske angrepet har vært utsatt som de nyeste og mest aggressive noensinne oppdaget.

    Obama-administrasjonen har bestilt forbedringer i USA cybersecurity, og Pentagons egen Cyber Command unit tar aggressiv mottiltak. Vi kan ikke flytte raskt nok til å styrke våre cyber beskyttelse og forsvar.

    Kanskje er Kina bare engasjert i gammeldags industriell spionasje å få en økonomisk overtake...

    Cyber-misdaden waren van mening dat een van de belangrijkste redenen waarom phishing-aanvallen ongebreidelde waren was dat mensen bereid waren te gemakkelijk het onthullen van persoonlijke informatie ondanks herhaalde waarschuwingen van de autoriteiten.

    "Banken nooit vragen om persoonlijke gegevens via e-mail. Uw mobiele-serviceprovider niet bellen u op uw telefoon van onbekende nummers voor informatie,"zei cyber-deskundige Vijay Mukhi.

    Mukhi zei dat in de meeste het probleem ligt tussen het toetsenbord en de stoel - de gebruiker de meeste gevallen.

    Een voorbeeld hiervan is Shirish Sadani die niet alleen een antwoord op een frauduleuze e-mail gegeven maar ook gaf Details van zijn mobiele nummer telefoonnummer. In geval van Sadani, meende de fraudeurs iemand ofwel in de aanbieder bedrijf dat zijn SIM geblokkeerd of gewoon benaderd een van hun winkels met een nep bewijs van identiteit beweren dat Sadani zijn telefoon, had verloren omgekocht deskundigen toezicht op dergelijke misdaden.

    Een andere cyber deskundige Vicky Shah zei dat in gevallen van speared phishing ook bekend als smishing waar mensen e-mails, tekstberichten of telefoongesprekken ontvangen, zij onmiddellijk moeten controleren met de betrokken instantie.

    "Als u ontvangt een SMS-bericht of een e-mail van iemand zeggen dat er een probleem met uw bankrekening is en dat u details moet bijwerken, moet u de bank op het officiële nummer contacteren. Als gebruikers niet waakzaam, je niet kwalijk nemen d...

    Studenter av tekniske kurs på lavere og høyere nivå nå studerer et nytt emne: cyber sikkerhet og informasjonssikkerhet. Universitetet tilskudd Commission (UGC), ta merke til den økende bruken av datamaskin og informasjonsteknologi i ulike deler av hverdagslivet, har utstedt et varsel til høyskoler å innføre dette temaet.

    Brevet sier at avgjørelsen er tatt i henhold til anbefalingene fra task force på nasjonale sikkerhetssystem. "UGC og AICTE ville sikre at cybersikkerhet / informasjonssikkerhet er innført som et emne i universiteter og teknisk institusjoner på lavere og høyere nivåer."

    Her, deler noen studenter sine tanker om dette problemet.

    I dag, håndtere vi milliarder av sider med informasjon på Internett. Vi har online bankvirksomheten og pengeoverføringer, online shopping, sosiale nettverk, e-post, kredittkortnumre, passord og så videre. Med alle disse sensitive dataene bare roaming rundt på Internett, er det svært enkelt for en hacker å få tak i denne informasjonen og bruke den til ulovlige formål.

    Cybersikkerhet er å sikre at alle data i nettverket er sikkert. I dag, bruker selv tenåringer Internett mye, uten å vite farene de kunne ansikt. Jeg tror at cybersikkerhet er et viktig tema for ingeniører. Det lærer dem hvordan usikkert data på Internett kan være, det lærer dem kravet til sikkerhet, hva skade data de laster opp på Internett er sannsynlig...

  • http://www.luuux.com/technology/abney-and-associates-cybercrime-be-wary-public-wi-fi-while-vacation Abney and Associates MONTREAL - Travellers should be wary of cyber threats on vacation as they access free wireless networks with their smartphones, tablets or laptops, says software security company Symantec Corp. Canadians travelling for March break and into the summer season shouldn't be doing things like pulling up their bank accounts on Wi-Fi networks, said Symantec Canada's Lynn Hargrove. "What people don't realize is that there's no security on those Wi-Fi networks for the most part," she said. "It's a great way to keep in touch while you're on vacation, but there are some inherent risks that come with it that people just aren't thinking about." Symantec has found that two in 10 Canadians pull up their bank accounts on free Wi-Fi networks in Canada. Young men are most at risk for cybercrime because they are "fearless" and access risky Internet sites, said Hargrove, director of consumer solutions, from Toronto. According to Symantec's 2012 Norton Cybercrime report, travellers are often victimized through their mobile devices while abroad, often by text messages. "We're seeing a lot of fraudulent texts asking you to click on a link or go and dial a number to retrieve a voice mail," Hargrove said. And the wealth of information stored on a smartphone - pictures, texts, emails, contact lists, work documents, banking information - can be...

    http://abneyassociates.org/2013/01/29/android-befall-ios-in-popularity-in-singapore-hk/ When it comes to Smartphones, It is clearly a battle between Android and iOS. But signs are emerging that Apple might be losing grip in the two Asian markets. Conforming to Reuters report, most of the well-off smartphone users in Singapore and Hong Kong are turning to Android handsets, mostly Samsung, rather than iOS of Apple. The trouble that iPhone is their desire to be different that causing them as weakness and in turn an advantage to competing device. Reuters states that Apple’s share of mobile devices in Singapore–iPad and iPhone–fell from a peak of 72 percent in January 2012 to 50 percent this month. As for Android devices, they now account for 43 percent of the market, up from 20 percent in the same month last year. Hong Kong shows no different aftereffect, iOS devices declined from 45 percent to 30 percent in a year, while Android accounts for about two-thirds of smartphones used. These findings are not surprising at all, maybe not foreseen but definitely not shocking. We are used to long lines for the new iPhone but we are seeing longer lines for the Samsung Galaxy S III and Note II LTE in Singapore. With the support of our familiarity, we can safely claim that the interest in the apparent S4 will surely come as another hit in the market for the coming months.
