NICE, France (AP) – President Emmanuel Macron traveled to the French Mediterranean coast on Monday to talk about internal security, making a stop in the city where an extremist drove a freight truck into the Bastille Day crowd in 2016, killing 86 people and injuring hundreds more.

Macron has yet to officially confirm that he is running for a second term in this spring’s elections, but his visit to French Rivera has had campaign overtones in a stronghold of Valérie Pécresse, a conservative who is seen by many as his challenger. The most important.

He was meeting with law enforcement officials, magistrates and city officials, to check on the progress of security-related projects put in place in 2017 when he was elected.

Monday’s appointments were set for the former Saint Roch hospital, a 19th century building in the heart of Old Nice. Macron will lay the foundation stone for a state-funded police complex where more than 2,000 national and municipal officers will work with cutting-edge technology, including what Macron’s advisers have called an “urban center of hyper- vision ”which will be based mainly on video surveillance.

Work is expected to start next year and become operational in 2025.

In September, Macron announced measures to make the police more transparent, including the publication of internal investigative reports and the creation of a parliamentary oversight body, with the aim of improving public confidence eroded by the scandals. of recent years.

He also called for more training and education for the country’s police force and dealing with victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse and assault, and detailed the application of a controversial law. to fight radicalization after a series of extremist Islamic attacks.

Australians have fallen victim to an upsurge in cybercrime and crooks looted more than $ 33 billion last year alone.
At Cyber ​​Security Center in Australia, a pandemic has forced more employees to work from home, increasing the number of reported online crimes by 13%. There was also a self-reported loss of over $ 33 billion. The ASCS says in its annual report that fraud, online shopping and online banking fraud are the most popular schemes. “Australia has lost money and personal information in more than 75% of cybercrime reports linked to a pandemic,” he said.

“It just goes to show that it must be pretty easy to do, create a fake profile… their profile is there and then it’s just gone and you haven’t got any trace of them.” “Usually we go to the person’s profile and see if they’ve sold anything on certain groups before, how many friends they have, just to make sure they’re legit. This person seemed like a legitimate person, so I thought it was okay. It wasn’t until a few days after paying her money that the woman and her partner discovered that her seller’s profile and ads had been removed. At first, she said she suspected there might be other reasons for the profile to disappear until the same group image, a component sold at double the price, was found on Gumtree.

“Almost 500 reports of ransomware cybercrime, an increase of almost 15% from the previous fiscal year.” Earlier this month, a Victorian woman lost hundreds to a Facebook Marketplace scam. The avid cyclist, who wished not to be named, transferred $ 600 for the component of a bicycle she was building and $ 25 for shipping, only for the seller, who was posing as a father of family from the Victoria area, delete their profile and be deleted. internet. “I was really annoyed with them and I guess with myself that this happened,” the woman told news.com.au, adding that she was a regular buyer on the platform and that she considered herself cautious.

By the end of November this year, Scamwatch had received 1,232 fraudulent reports mentioning the marketplace from Facebook and lost $ 781,774, according to 4,444 data from Australian consumer protection agencies. This number can be high because not everyone is reporting their experience on the website.

More worryingly, a third of Australian companies affected by the ransomware attack pay the ransom. “The average business ransomware costs $ 280,000, and every 11 seconds a ransomware attack occurs and escalates,” said Phil Parisis, chief product officer of Business Australia. “Both methods are very common, very easy for many businesses, very simple and sedentary ducks.” From this story, Business Australia has 11 seconds of ransomware attacks against small businesses. He warns that this will happen every time. Industry groups say cybercriminals are taking advantage of pandemics and remote shift changes, increasing attacks by 30% in the past six months and making Australian SMEs the number one target for cybercrime. discovered.

Norton 360 now comes with a cryptominer – Krebs on Security https://pjmagic.net/norton-360-now-comes-with-a-cryptominer-krebs-on-security/ Thu, 06 Jan 2022 22:57:34 +0000 https://pjmagic.net/norton-360-now-comes-with-a-cryptominer-krebs-on-security/ Norton 360, one of the most popular antivirus products on the market today, has installed a cryptocurrency mining program on its customers’ computers.

Norton 360, one of the most popular antivirus products on the market today, has installed a cryptocurrency mining program on its customers’ computers. Norton’s parent company said the cloud-based service that activates the program and allows customers to take advantage of the program – in which the company keeps 15% of all currencies mined – is “opt-in,” which means that users must agree to activate. But many Norton users complain that the mining program is difficult to remove, and reactions from longtime customers range from unease and disbelief to “Dude, where’s my crypto?” “

Norton 360 is owned by Tempe, Arizona NortonLifeLock Inc. In 2017, the identity theft protection company LifeLock was acquired by Symantec Corp., which was renamed NortonLifeLock in 2019 (LifeLock is now included in the Norton 360 service).

According to the FAQ posted on its site, “Norton Crypto”Will mine Ethereum cryptocurrency (ETH) while the customer’s computer is idle. The FAQ also states that Norton Crypto will only work on systems that meet certain hardware and software requirements (such as an NVIDIA graphics card with at least 6 GB of memory).

“Norton creates a secure digital Ethereum wallet for every user,” the FAQ reads. “The wallet key is encrypted and stored securely in the cloud. Only you have access to the wallet.

NortonLifeLock began offering the mining service in July 2021, and the program’s first media coverage did not immediately gain attention. That changed on January 4, when Boing Boing’s co-editor Cory doctorow tweeted that NortonCrypto would run by default for Norton 360 users.

NortonLifeLock indicates that Norton Crypto is an optional feature only and is not activated without user permission.

“If users have enabled Norton Crypto but no longer wish to use the feature, it can be disabled by temporarily disabling ‘Tamper Protection’ (which allows users to modify the Norton installation) and removing NCrypt.exe from your computer, ”NortonLifeLock said in a written statement. However, many users reported difficulty in removing the mining program.

Reading posts from users on the Norton Crypto community forum, it appears that some long-time Norton customers have been appalled that their antivirus product installs coin mining software, which the Norton service provides. mining is or is not disabled by default.

“How on earth could someone at Norton think that adding crypto-mining to a security product would be a good thing?” Read a December 28 thread titled “Absolutely Pissed Off.”

“Norton should DETECT and eliminate crypto-mining hijacking, not install theirs,” the post read. “The product that people need to get. What’s the next “bright idea”? Norton botnet? And I was about to reinstall Norton 360 too, but that literally made me lose faith in Norton and their management.

It is an open question whether Norton Crypto users can expect to gain much from participating in this program, at least in the short term. Cryptocurrency mining is basically using your spare computer resources to help validate the financial transactions of other crypto users. Cryptocurrency mining causes the computer to consume more power, which can increase overall electricity costs.

“Norton pretty much amplifies energy use around the world, costing its customers more in electricity use than the customer does on mining, while still allowing Norton to achieve a ton. of benefits ” tweeted security researcher Chris Vickery. “It’s disgusting, disgusting and a mark of suicide.”

Then there is the matter of getting paid. Norton Crypto allows users to withdraw their earnings to an account on the CoinBase cryptocurrency platform, but as the Norton Crypto FAQ rightly points out, there are coin mining fees as well as costs of transaction to transfer Ethereum.

“The coin mining fee is currently 15% of the crypto allocated to the miner,” the FAQ explains. “Cryptocurrency transfers may incur transaction fees (also known as ‘gas’ fees) paid to users of the cryptocurrency blockchain network who process the transaction. Additionally, if you choose to exchange cryptos for another currency, you may need to pay fees to an exchange that facilitates the transaction. Transaction fees fluctuate due to cryptocurrency market conditions and other factors. These charges are not set by Norton.

Which might explain why so many Norton Crypto users have taken to the community’s online forum to complain about having trouble withdrawing their earnings. These gas fees are the same regardless of how much crypto is moved, so the system simply blocks withdrawals if the requested amount cannot cover the transfer fee.

Guess what bothers me the most about Norton Crypto is that it will introduce millions of perhaps less savvy internet users into the world of cryptocurrency, which comes with its own set of Unique security and privacy challenges that require users to “improve” their personal security practices in quite significant ways.

Many of my older family and closest friends are long-time Norton users who renew their subscription year after year (although I remind them that it is much cheaper to buy it again every year. as a new user). None of them are particularly interested or expert in securing their computers and digital lives, and the idea that they open CoinBase accounts and navigate this space is terrifying.

Big Yellow isn’t the only brand that is capitalizing on investor fervor for cryptocurrencies and hoping to appeal to a wider (or maybe just older) audience: the venerable electronics retailer. RadioShack, which was relaunched in 2020 as a web-driven brand, now says it plans to prepare for a future as a cryptocurrency exchange.

“RadioShack’s argument is basically that as a very old brand it is willing to sell former CEOs on cryptocurrency,” writes Adi robertson for The edge.

“Too much [cryptocurrency companies] focused on speculation and not enough on putting the ‘old-fashioned’ customer at ease, ”the firm’s website says, claiming that the CEO of a ‘decision-making’ firm needs to average 68 years. “The older generation just doesn’t trust the new ideas of the Bitcoin youth.”

A cyber attack on the UK Defense Academy caused “significant” damage, a senior retired officer has revealed.

Air Marshal Edward Stringer, who left the military in August, told Sky News that the attack, discovered in March 2021, was forcing the Defense Academy to rebuild its network.

He said he was unsure whether criminals or a hostile state like China, Russia, Iran or North Korea were responsible, but the damage has yet to be fully repaired for months over. late, Sky reported.

Stringer said, “It could be one of those or it could just be someone trying to find a vulnerability for a ransomware attack that was just, you know, a real criminal organization.”

He added, “There were costs for… operational production. There were opportunity costs in what our staff could have done when they needed to repair this damage.

“And what could we spend the money we had to bring in to rebuild the network? There are no bodies in the streets, but there was still damage.

Sky News reported that no sensitive information was stored on the academy’s network.

The school, based in Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, teaches 28,000 servicemen, diplomats and civil servants a year and has moved more online during the pandemic.

In the interview with Sky, the first since leaving the military, Stringer said that “unusual activity” was first discovered by contractors working for outsourcing company Serco and that the “alarm bells” had started ringing.

He told the point of sale that there were “outside agents on our network who appeared to be there for what looked like nefarious reasons pretty quickly.”

But he revealed that the attack was unsuccessful and while the hackers may have used the academy as a “back door” to other Department of Defense (MoD) systems, there is had no breach beyond the school.

Stringer – who was also director general of joint force development and led the military to think about how it would adapt to the future of the war – said the attack was in a so-called gray area of prejudice, which sits below the war threshold, according to Sky News.

The site, which looks a lot like a domain for a university, had to be completely rebuilt, a task that is still in progress, Sky said.

The National Cyber ​​Security Center, a branch of GCHQ, has also been made aware of the hack, Sky News reported.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense said: “In March 2021, we were informed of an incident affecting the IT infrastructure of the Defense Academy. We took swift action and there was no impact on the entire Defense Ministry computer network. Teaching at the Defense Academy continued.

From Okwe Obi, Abuja

A civil society organization known as Mothers for United Nigeria (MUN) called on Nigerians to always provide useful information to security personnel that would lead to the arrest of bandits or attempted chaos.

Its publicity secretary, Salamatu Adebayo, said in a statement that in 2021 the military had done its best to fight the insurgency in the northeast, and said the Christmas season in the region was marked by less security tensions.

Adebayo further instructed mothers to deter their children from joining or associating with criminal gangs.

In addition to praising the tenacity of the Nigerian armed forces and praying for their safety in 2022 and beyond, she congratulated the Association of Wives of Defense and Police Officers, DEPOWA led Vickie Irabor for the various programs launched for make military families smile. personal and less privileged.

“2021 has been a challenging year, but Nigeria’s armed forces have stood their ground by refusing to be intimidated.

“We therefore call on mothers to convince their husbands and their children of the need to refrain from having anything to do with the enemies of the country because the AFN will come after them.

“We, MUN, are confident that the Nigerian Armed Forces under the leadership of General LEO Irabor are on the right track to make the country safe for all.

“We cannot stress enough the noble role of DEPOWA in 2021. The group has continued to make us smile, especially the widows of deceased heroes, the families of serving staff and other less privileged Nigerians.

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines has experienced two major cybersecurity breaches in the past 60 days.

One involved displaying information about the customers of a large trading club of members; the other happened a few days ago when a number of customers at one of the country’s largest banks reported that their bank accounts were missing money.

We are entering a new era where the majority of transactions are done digitally, and it is not money, but trust, which is the most valuable currency. Unfortunately, a number of businesses have to learn this the hard way.

Since most transactions take place in the digital world, this is also where threat actors, known and unknown to businesses, thrive and persist in capturing their payload. It is an embarrassing truth whether or not companies are simply aware that they are being violated, or not. It is only a matter of the extent of the violation that differs, and a matter of time until the negative effects are tangibly realized.

IT departments bear the brunt of this challenge the most, as they have now shifted their mandates from traditional suppliers of IT equipment to those of business enablers.

IT organizations must carefully juggle business growth and cost optimization, while ensuring the security of business and customer information. The security of these information assets is no longer an afterthought, but is now a fundamental element in ensuring confidence in the company.

Traditionally, IT organizations have deployed endpoint solutions to protect workstations and servers – places where attackers are expected to exploit the most. In addition, perimeter solutions are deployed to define a protected area for the IT network.

Unfortunately, since they serve as the gateway to the network, there are still malicious transactions that can go through the gate controls. Recently, there has been the emergence of a new method to obtain information about the data passing through the various nodes of the IT infrastructure, and it is thanks to the visibility of the network.

What is network visibility?

Network visibility refers to the ability (facilitated by a specialized network tool) to understand the structure of network traffic in a way that allows network administrators to see bottlenecks, sources of degradation, or the activity of the threats being conveyed. through the network.

The last point, in particular, has recently gained in importance. The increasing incidences of active attacks designed to explore and exploit vulnerabilities in an enterprise’s IT network have demonstrated the urgent need to supplement traditional security solutions with another layer of protection that covers a gap between the perimeter and the points. termination and uses behavior analysis, rather than signatures, to detect malicious activity.

Detect and respond

This approach of detecting anomalies in network traffic with the aim of exposing threat activity on the network is called Network Detection and Response (or NDR). The term is linked to a shift from the traditional mentality of prevention and protection to detect and to respond, which focuses on tracking down threats that go under the radar of traditional security tools.

The non-delivery report is particularly relevant in the context of the new standard; the expansion of the company’s infrastructure beyond the company’s premises has dramatically increased the attack surface. Although security best practices should always be followed, you cannot always rely on known signatures to detect an inbound attack. In such a reality, security solutions based on behavioral analysis become a necessity.

NDR solutions were once the domain of large enterprises, due to the considerable budgetary requirements of these tools. But now the market is also becoming much more accessible to small and medium-sized businesses.

Kemp Flowmon is one of those solutions. It analyzes network telemetry and provides information on network issues as well as the activity of threat actors. Detected security events are then visualized and provide context-rich details to facilitate precise situational awareness and enable straightforward response.

Kemp Flowmon integrates seamlessly with the corporate security ecosystem and offers integration options with other tools such as SIEM or firewalls for automated online blocking. Its AI-based detection engine is among the most powerful on the market and capable of detecting anomalies in normal and encrypted traffic, but the solution is lightweight and flexible enough to be available to businesses of all sizes and structures.

The scalability trait is essential here, as the target base for cyber attacks grows. You no longer need to be tall or vulnerable to draw a breach. As long as you are in cyberspace, you are already a potential target.

Don’t wait for your offense

Kemp currently offers a free network assessment in which an expert network engineer deploys the solution and assesses it for free for operational and security issues.

Have your network assessed and be able to find out what’s going on in your network before threats disrupt your business.
