BREACH: Hackers charged with stealing over $100m in US army and Xbox technology via OSINT-X Newswires

Four men have been charged with breaking into the computer systems of Microsoft, the US army and leading games manufacturers, as part of an alleged international hacking ring that netted more than $100m in intellectual property, the US Department of Justice said on Tuesday.

The four, aged between 18 and 28, are alleged to have stolen Xbox technology, Apache helicopter training software and pre-release copies of games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, according to an indictment dating from April that was unsealed on Tuesday.

Two of the hackers pleaded guilty earlier in the day, the DoJ said.

“These were extremely sophisticated hackers ... Don’t be fooled by their ages,” assistant US attorney Ed McAndrew said after a court hearing on Tuesday.

According to prosecutors, the defendants stole intellectual property and other proprietary data related to the Xbox One gaming console and Xbox Live online gaming system, and pre-release copies of popular video games. The Department of Justice (DoJ) claimed the technology was worth between $100m and $200m, a figure hotly disputed by one of those facing charges.

The four charged in the US were named as Nathan Leroux, 20, of Bowie, Maryland; Sanadodeh Nesheiwat, 28, of Washington, New Jersey; David Pokora, 22, of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada; and Austin Alcala, 18, of McCordsville, Indiana. The DoJ also said a man faces charges in Australia in connection with the same allegations. It did not name him in the announcement, but he was identified by Australian media earlier this year as Dylan Wheeler, 19, from Perth.

Pokora and Nesheiwat each pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy to commit computer fraud and copyright infringement. They face up to five years in prison when sentenced in January.

The four in the US had been jointly charged with with conspiracies to commit computer fraud, copyright infringement, wire fraud, mail fraud, identity theft and theft of trade secrets. They were also individually charged with individual counts of aggravated identity theft, unauthorised computer access, copyright infringement and wire fraud. The charges were based on a federal grand jury indictment returned in April.

The hackers are alleged to have accessed the computer system of Zombie Studios, which allowed them to access a Apache helicopter training simulation program that the company had developed for the US army.
Other targets of the alleged hacks included Microsoft, and game companies Epic Games and Valve, the DoJ announced. It said the US has seized $620,000 in proceeds “related to the charged conduct”.

“As the indictment charges, the members of this international hacking ring stole trade secret data used in high-tech American products, ranging from software that trains US soldiers to fly Apache helicopters to Xbox games that entertain millions around the world,” said assistant US attorney General Caldwell.
McAndrew said FBI officials in Delaware were alerted to the hacking operation in January 2011 by a confidential informant, and that the gaming companies cooperated in the investigation.

Authorities began obtaining arrest warrants last year, and Pokora, who McAndrew said was looked to by other group members as a leader, was taken into custody in March at a border crossing in Lewiston, New York.

A copy of part of the sealed indictment, obtained by thesmokinggun.com in April, detailed the charges against three of the four alleged hackers: Leroux, Nesheiwat and Pokora. Alcala was not mentioned in the leaked document.

Pokora’s plea is believed to be the first conviction of a foreign-based individual for hacking into US businesses to steal trade secret information, authorities said.

The DoJ also said that “an Australian citizen has been charged under Australian law for his alleged role in the conspiracy”. It did not name Wheeler, who attracted attention in 2012 when he listed a home-made development prototype of the Xbox One, which at the time was still in development by Microsoft, on eBay. He was 17 at the time.

Wheeler is currently on bail awaiting trial for charges relating to these allegations. which he denies. He told the Guardian that he disputes the DoJ’s estimated value of the alleged thefts - $100m to $200m - as “meaningless”. He also said that the $620,000 seized was from an act of theft by a single hacker in an “extremely disorganised group.”

“Apart from that, the group made nothing,” he said. “It was just curiosity.”

BREACH: ACME financial data breach at NJ stores via OSINT-X Newswires UPDATED 3:42PM EST

Malicious software installed on ACME Markets networks in late August or earlier this month may place financial data of shoppers at risk, according to 6ABC.

Stores in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were potentially affected, according to ACME's website.

"Based on the information we currently know, it is not believed that any customer data was stolen. However, out of an abundance of caution, if you used your credit or debit card in a potentially affected store between June 22, 2014 and July 17, 2014 or between August 27, 2014 and September 21, 2014, you should monitor your credit and debit card account and promptly contact the bank that issued your payment card if you see suspicious activity," according to the company.

Stolen data may include names, account numbers, expiration dates or other numerical information. However, social security numbers, birth dates or driver’s license information was not affected because "that information is not collected as part of the payment process," according to the company.


This Sounds Familiar: Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, ACME, Shaw's Hit By Second Credit Card Data ...
When someone wrote me to say there was a data breach at the company behind several major supermarket chains — including Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, ACME, Star Markets, and Shaw’s — I thought, “That happened about six weeks ago, didn’t it?” Alas, the company has announced it is the victim of a new, separate attack.

BREACH: Supervalu hit with second data breach, including four metro Cub Foods stores via OSINT-X Newswires

Supervalu said Monday that it was the victim of yet another customer payment card data breach -- this one affecting four Twin Cities Cub Foods stores.

The Eden Prairie-based grocery chain said the breach likely began in late August and ended Sept. 21. This is the second such breach the company has suffered in recent months, and the first was much broader.

The four affected Twin Cities stores are in Hastings, Shakopee, Roseville (Har Mar) and White Bear Lake. Supervalu said credit and debit card information may have been stolen, including card numbers, expiration dates and cardholders' names. The company did not say how many accounts may have been affected.

Supervalu is among several retailers to be victimized by cyberthieves in the past year. High-profile payment card data breaches at Target, Home Depot, Dairy Queen and others have left tens of millions of consumers vulnerable to financial theft. Stolen card numbers have been found for sale en masse on clandestine websites, presumably posted by the thieves.

Supervalu has never said how many accounts may have been compromised at its stores.

The grocery company was in the process of installing "enhanced protective technology" on its point-of-sale terminals when hackers installed malicious software on the network that processes transactions for the company's Shop 'n Save, Shoppers Food & Pharmacy and Cub Foods stores, according to Supervalu's news release.

These security measures are designed to prevent malware uploaded to the company's network from collecting any payment card data.

BREACH: Jewel Osco parent company discloses new data breach via OSINT-X Newswires

For the second time in less than two months, hackers have targeted Jewel-Osco.

The parent company said it is too early to tell just how many people have been affected, but did say that malicious software was installed in the networks that process debit and credit card transactions. Many stores have been affected in several states, including Indiana, Illinois and Iowa.

It seems like every week hackers infiltrate another company. Monday, it's the parent company of Jewel-Osco. Last week, it was Jimmy Johns.

"Fraud never sleeps," said Governors State University professor Bill Kresse. "While we're in bed here in the U.S., there is someone on the other side of the globe trying to separate you from your money."

Jewel's parent company says the most recent breach happened in late August or early this month.

It stresses there is no indication anything was stolen, but it may have accessed account numbers and expiration dates.

"It's a dangerous thing," said customer John Piazza. "I think it certainly needs to be addressed. Data security is very important and it's a very relevant concern today."

Identity theft and fraud expert Bill Kresse says this will keep happening until chip and pin cards replace magnetic stripe cards.

"The bad guys have not figured out a way to put that information on the chip embedded in the new style credit cards," said Kresse.

Fraud experts say that banks, credit card companies and retailers can no longer protect your credit card information, so it is best that statements and credit card information is checked on a daily basis.

BREACH: Lost Pizza Co in North Mississippi exposed to data hack via OSINT-X Newswire

The data hack that exposed the customers of more than 216 Jimmy John's locations has also netted two Lost Pizza Company locations, both in North Mississippi.

Credit card authorization and point-of-sale technology company Signature Systems, Inc. recently revealed that the customer data at 216 Jimmy John’s stores and 108 other restaurant locations including the Lost Pizza Co. locations in Tupelo and Southaven, Mississippi, had been exposed by cyber criminals.

"We have determined that an unauthorized person gained access to a user name and password that Signature Systems used to remotely access POS systems," a statement on Signature Systems website said. "The unauthorized person used that access to install malware designed to capture payment card data from cards that were swiped through terminals in certain restaurants. The malware was capable of capturing the cardholder’s name, card number, expiration date and verification code from the magnetic stripe of the card."

Raw Stats

According to ID Theft Center there were 4,816 major breaches between 2005 and September 23, 2014, with a total of 667,201,105 records stolen. That is not even including last week’s Jimmy John’s breach! With figures like this it’s easy to panic. For every American that is 2.1 stolen credit cards.

NEWS: Inventor of World Wide Web warns of threat to internet - Via OSINT-X Newswires

London (AFP) - The British inventor of the World Wide Web warned on Saturday that the freedom of the internet is under threat by governments and corporations interested in controlling the web.

Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist who invented the web 25 years ago, called for a bill of rights that would guarantee the independence of the internet and ensure users' privacy.

"If a company can control your access to the internet, if they can control which websites they go to, then they have tremendous control over your life," Berners-Lee said at the London "Web We Want" festival on the future of the internet.

"If a Government can block you going to, for example, the opposition's political pages, then they can give you a blinkered view of reality to keep themselves in power."

"Suddenly the power to abuse the open internet has become so tempting both for government and big companies."

Berners-Lee, 59, is director of the World Wide Web Consortium, a body which develops guidelines for the development of the internet.

He called for an internet version of the "Magna Carta", the 13th century English charter credited with guaranteeing basic rights and freedoms.

Concerns over privacy and freedom on the internet have increased in the wake of the revelation of mass government monitoring of online activity following leaks by former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

A ruling by the European Union to allow individuals to ask search engines such as Google to remove links to information about them, called the "right to be forgotten", has also raised concerns over the potential for censorship.

"There have been lots of times that it has been abused, so now the Magna Carta is about saying...I want a web where I'm not spied on, where there's no censorship," Berners-Lee said.

The scientist added that in order to be a "neutral medium", the internet had to reflect all of humanity, including "some ghastly stuff".

"Now some things are of course just illegal, child pornography, fraud, telling someone how to rob a bank, that's illegal before the web and it's illegal after the web," Berners-Lee added.

7 Biggest Healthcare Data Breaches in the US (So Far)

1. Information on 4.9 million Tricare Management Activity beneficiaries was stolen from a Science Applications International Corporation employee’s car in 2011.
2. This year, Complete Health Systems, based in Tennessee, reported that a network server was hacked and personal information was stolen, affecting 4.5 million people around the country.
3. Illinois-based Advocate Health and Hospitals Corporation reported the theft of company computers, which impacted almost 4.03 million individuals in 2013.
4. Health Net in California had a data breach in 2011 that affected 1.9 million people. In that case, IBM alerted Health Net that several unencrypted server hard drives were missing from a California-based data center.
5. Between 2013 and 2014, the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services reported a breach that affected more than 1.06 million people. A network server was hacked and patient data stolen.
6. In 2011, the Nemours Foundation reported it had lost three data tapes containing 10 years' worth of information on 1.05 million patients. The tapes, and the cabinet they were in, went missing from a Delaware facility; the company said it may have happened during a remodeling project.
7. In 2009, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee reported a breach when hard drives were stolen containing information on more than 1.02 million patients.
According to a recent Reuters report, medical information is worth about 10 times more than credit card numbers on the black market. Last month, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) put out an alert to healthcare organizations to be on the lookout for data hackers.

The FBI said it had observed “malicious actors targeting healthcare-related systems, perhaps for the purpose of obtaining Protected Healthcare Information ... and/or Personally Identifiable Information."

NEWS: 'Bash' bug could let hackers attack through a light bulb

Say hello to the bash bug, a lesson in why Internet-connected devices are inherently unsafe.

Computer security researchers have discovered a flaw in the way many devices communicate over the Internet. At its most basic, it lets someone hack every Internet-enabled device in your house -- via something as simple as your light bulb.

That is, if you're one of those tech-embracing types who buys Internet-connected "smart" appliances.
But that includes a rapidly growing number of businesses and governments that use smart devices -- like cameras -- within their internal networks.

Why fear the bash bug? Because it's so pervasive.

According to open source software company Red Hat, it affects any device that uses the operating system Linux -- which includes everything from calculators to cars. But it also affects Apple (AAPL, Tech30) Macs and some Android, Windows and IBM machines.

In a public warning, Red Hat researchers classified the severity of the bug as "catastrophic."

Not every connected device is vulnerable. But it's difficult for the average person to figure out if, for instance, their home security camera is at risk.

The problem is new enough that it's impossible to know if hackers are already using it. But if it's anything like the Heartbleed bug discovered earlier this year, we might not see damage for months. And when we do, it could be disastrous.

In the case of Heartbleed, hackers eventually broke into a hospital network and stole 4.5 million patient records -- including Social Security numbers.

The only solution for the bash bug? If and when a patch becomes available, update every device you have. But that's something that's not likely. Companies don't often update their fleet of devices, and customers rarely pay attention for that sort of thing.

As of 9:00AM EST: We detected mass scanning of servers for the vulnerability in our OSINT-X system. The initial results look like 83% of Internet connected devices are vulnerable.

As of 11:08AM EST: We have been informed that Red Hat's previous patches are not effective against this attack. Oracle, Ubuntu and Juniper are releasing patches to address the issue. Red Hat has not released an update yet.  

As of 12:53PM EST: We are starting to see reports of botnet activity being alerted on as a direct result of this vulnerability. Several clients have called in to ask for assistance in containing the issue.

ALERT: ATM Reader Malware New Focus

Security Researchers at SLC Security Services LLC have been actively monitoring a new potential issue with ATM machines in the US and abroad. We have been contacted by several clients that have complained of blue screen issues with ATM machines over the past few weeks.Upon examination of the operating system logs we are noticing that the machines are blue screening during the read operation of the inserted ATM cards.

One client in particular has seen 4 different ATM locations affected and has had to restart several ATM machines over the past few weeks. Upon examining the ATM machines we have determined that the attack vector is a particular type of overflow in the card reader system. Conventional Anti-Virus software does NOT detect the infection. We have noted that pre-paid credit cards are being used to perform this attempted hack of the ATM machines and the information that is embedded on the magnetic strip is actually binary and attempts to perform some sort of injection of code into the card reader themselves. None of the attempts at our client organization have been successful but this should be a warning that hackers are attempting to attack these machines via the card reader.

We are monitoring the situation for the organization and will post information after law enforcement has concluded their individual investigations.

ALERT: Pharmaceutical Sector

We are getting a large number of reports of targetted attacks aimed at Pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe. We have seen several different variants of a new malware campaign known a "Havex" that are not being detected by AV products.

1. Out of thousands of possible ICS suppliers, the three companies targeted for trojanized software were not primary suppliers to “energy” facilities. Instead, all three offered products and services most commonly used by the pharmaceutical industry.

2. The Dragonfly attack is very similar in nature to another campaign called Epic Turla and is likely managed by the same team. Epic Turla has been shown to have targeted the intellectual property of pharmaceutical companies.

3. The Dragonfly malware contained an Industrial Protocol Scanner module that searched for devices on TCP ports 44818 (Omron, Rockwell Automation), 102 (Siemens) and 502 (Schneider Electric). These protocols and products have a higher installed base in packaging and manufacturing applications typically found in consumer packaged goods industries, such as pharmaceutical rather than the energy industry.

“My research, coupled with my knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry, led me to conclude that it was the target of Dragonfly,” remarked Langill. “The potential damage could include the theft of proprietary recipes and production batch sequence steps, as well as network and device information that indicate manufacturing plant volumes and capabilities.”

ALERT: Citadel Adapted for Espionage

IBM's Trusteer, which develops anti-fraud software used by a number of banks, warns that it's discovered a Citadel variant that's been tweaked for espionage purposes, and which is being used to target a number of organizations, including an unnamed chemical manufacturer.

"While the use of advanced malware that was originally built for financial theft as a generic advanced persistent threat tool is not new, this is the first time we've seen Citadel used to target nonfinancial organizations," says Dana Tamir, director of enterprise security at IBM's Trusteer, in a blog post. Trusteer has declined to name the victims - or confirm whether it could tell if the campaign was related to industrial espionage or nation-state spying. It says only that they victims include "one of the largest sellers of petrochemical products in the Middle East and a regional supplier of raw petrochemical materials." Trusteer says it directly notified all of the fewer than 10 victims it identified.

Based on Trusteer's analysis, tweaking Citadel to spy on non-banking businesses didn't take much customization. "According to an analysis of the configuration file used in this attack, the Citadel malware was instructed to look for user access to certain URL addresses of Internet-connected systems, such as webmail, of the targeted companies," Tamir says. "Once the browser accesses such a URL, the malware is instructed to grab all the information submitted by the user."

Because this type of "form grabbing" attack is happening in the browser, it allows the malware to grab the data being submitted - including usernames and passwords for corporate webmail accounts - before it gets encrypted. But Trusteer says it's not clear if the attackers directly targeted the petrochemical and other firms, or if they just happened to retrieve the valid credentials from PCs infected with the malware, as part of more widespread financial cybercrime activities.

BREACH: Sheplers Western Wear

Sheplers, a western-wear retailer based in Frisco, Texas, says the company's payment systems have been breached by hackers who gained access to some of its customers' payment card information.

The company doesn't believe its online store was affected.
Sheplers said it is cooperating with law enforcement. The company said "although our investigation continues, at the present time, we believe it is safe to use payment cards at Sheplers."
Sheplers said information at risk includes names, account numbers and card expiration dates, and said it has found no evidence that debit card PINs have been compromised.
Private-equity firm Gryphon Investors bought Sheplers for an undisclosed amount in 2007. The store sells items such as boots, hats and home d├ęcor.
