#Anonymous Declares War on Mainstream Media: Attacks Fox, CNN, NBC and More:

As of June 1st, Ghost Squad Hackers – the same group leading #OpIcarus – have launched a series of coordinated attacks against leading members of the corporate mainstream media. Giving credit where credit is due, Tec.mic and Softpedia were the first to report the operation. But their reports only tell a portion of the whole story, we will explain why in a moment.

Broadly speaking, the goal of the #OpSilence is to attack all the corrupt major news networks that mislead and censor information from the general public. More specifically, the news agencies who conceal the crimes of Israel, while misleading the population about the mistreatment of the Palestinian people. The operation is off to a quick start, Ghost Squad has successfully” carried out DDoS attacks on CNN and FOX News” already just this month. More attacks are promised, NBC and MSM appears to be their next target. Continue reading »

Hacker Arrested and Jailed After Exposing Flaws in Election Website:

Lee County, FL — A hacker in Florida exposed security vulnerabilities in one county’s elections web domains so officials could fix the problem — but, instead, he ended up behind bars.

Hacker David Michael Levin, owner of Vanguard Cybersecurity, was arrested on Wednesday after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement received a referral from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office after his apparently misguided attempt to help prevent election fraud by pointing out online vulnerabilities.

Romanian hacker Guccifer: I breached Clinton server, ‘it was easy’:

Anonymous Threatens To Expose Ted Cruz Prostitution Scandal:

There were many shots fired yesterday as the “wife feud” between Donald (and Melania) Trump and Ted (and Heidi) Cruz hit new lows, dragging none other than the National Enquirer tabloid into it and escalating the #CruzSexScandal into one of the most talked about topics on social media.

To be sure, Trump washed his hands of the affair saying “I have nothing to do with the National Enquirer and unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence. Ted Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about O.J. Simpson, John Edwards, and many others, I certainly hope they are not right about Lyin’ Ted Cruz.” Continue reading »

Mystery Man Behind $100 Million Central Bank Heist Revealed As Bangladesh Moves To Sue Fed:

The incredible story behind the cyber heist that resulted in an $81 million loss for the central bank of Bangladesh continues to get more intriguing. Bangladesh is looking to sue the NY Fed for lapses in protocol, while Philippine officials race to untangle a complex web of bad actors and shady go-betweens that looks like it may lead back to one Kim Wong, who 15 years ago was accused of connecting then-Senator Panfilo Lacson to drug lords. Meanwhile, a cyber security expert who spoke to the police and the media was kidnapped from a motorized rickshaw by men in plainclothes who blindfolded him, threw him in a vehicle, and drove away.

How Anonymous Just Fooled Donald Trump, the Secret Service, and the FBI:

United States — Anonymous just pulled a fast one on Donald Trump, his campaign staff, the Secret Service, and the FBI — in one brilliant and telling fell swoop.

To support the White Rose Society and the White Rose Revolt, which began as a response to fascist leanings by Trump and his supporters, Anonymous launched #OpWhiteRose — and the billionaire presidential hopeful fell right into the ‘trap.’

On Friday, Anonymous announced it had released Trump’s personal information online — including such details as his cell phone number and Social Security number. Backlash from the Trump front promptly followed, as well as an announcement from the Secret Service and FBI that an investigation had begun.

However, the information had not been hacked or leaked. In fact, everything Anonymous posted had been online — and available for anyone to see — for years. Continue reading »

“Security is an illusion… We don’t get out of life alive — none of us, so there can be no absolute security. That’s the certainty.”

Andrew Demeter is a young American political activist, amateur filmmaker, entrepreneur, journalist, and author. His documentary ‘We The People, Genetically-Modified?’ won first prize in C-SPAN’s 2014 StudentCam competition. To collect the award, he visited the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. where he met and questioned former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, on matters concerning the National Security Agency’s metadata collection. He recorded the short confrontation with his mobile phone, and the video subsequently went viral online. American radio host and documentary filmmaker Alex Jones has glorified Demeter as “a successful, young journalist…just by asking real questions!”.

JPMorgan’s databases hacked, financial system vulnerable:

Three people have been charged this week in connection to “the largest theft of customer data from a U.S. financial institution in history.”

Those are the words of Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney involved in the case involving a major cyber hack on JP Morgan in July 2014, among many others.

Despite the media initially speculating that the hack came from Russia, it turns out the men involved were all from Israel; Gery Shalon, 31, Ziv Orenstein, 40, and Joshua Samuel Aaron, 31.

The trio have been charged on 23 counts relating to the computer hacking of multiple financial institutions and financial news publishers; including the Wall Street Journal and stealing the personal data of 83 million JP Morgan customers. Continue reading »

Description:

Mozilla yesterday detailed a security attack on its bug tracker and testing tool Bugzilla, as well as the steps it is taking to mitigate a repeat incident. In short, a hacker compromised the service, stole security-sensitive information, and used it to attack Firefox users.

Bugzilla is open-source software that has been adopted by a variety of organizations in addition to Mozilla: WebKit, the Linux kernel, FreeBSD, Gnome, KDE, Apache, Red Hat, Eclipse, and LibreOffice. While Bugzilla is mostly public, access to security-sensitive information is restricted so that only certain privileged users can access it. Following the attack, Mozilla has now beefed up security on those accounts.

Ashley Madison Hacked: America’s 37 Million ‘Cheaters’ About To Be Exposed (ZeroHedge, July 19, 2015):

Two months ago, AdultFriendFinder was hacked, exposing fuck buddy friend-finding federal employees among its 3.5 million user ‘exposure’. Today, as KrebsOnSecurity reports, large caches of data stolen from online cheating site AshleyMadison.com have been posted online by an individual or group that claims to have completely compromised the company’s user databases, financial records and other proprietary information (including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies). The hacker group “The Impact Team” manifesto concludes, “too bad for those [37 million] men, they’re cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion.”

UK Government Quietly Rewrites Hacking Laws to Give GCHQ Immunity (Ars Technica, May 17, 2015):

The UK government has quietly passed new legislation that exempts GCHQ, police, and other intelligence officers from prosecution for hacking into computers and mobile phones.

While major or controversial legislative changes usually go through normal parliamentary process (i.e. democratic debate) before being passed into law, in this case an amendment to the Computer Misuse Act was snuck in under the radar as secondary legislation. According to Privacy International, “It appears no regulators, commissioners responsible for overseeing the intelligence agencies, the Information Commissioner’s Office, industry, NGOs or the public were notified or consulted about the proposed legislative changes… There was no public debate.” Continue reading »

hdr22@clintonemail.com – How A Romanian Hacker Exposed Hillary Clinton’s Secret Email Life (ZeroHedge, March 3, 2015):

While the Hillary Clinton email fiasco is sure to be the talk of the town for the next few days, weeks, and months and may have seriously jeopardized the former SecState’s chances at becoming America’s next president, an even more important story is how the revelation that Hillary exclusively used a private, unencrypted and unsupervised email for 4 years of state-level, official business communications, emerged in the first place.

The answer, shockingly, comes courtesy of a Romanian hacker who was known by the handle “Guccifer”, and who is currently serving time in a Bucharest prison for his online attacks against countless public figures including the infamous leaks of George W. Bush personal paintings. Continue reading »

1bn online bank heist

Remote ATM control: Kaspersky Lab details $1bn online bank heist (EXCLUSIVE) (RT, Feb 16, 2015):

Internet security company Kaspersky Lab says the banking industry could be experiencing “a new era in cybercrime.” The company has been investigating a $1 billion attack on financial institutions by a sophisticated hacking group.

The IT security firm says the hackers from the Carabanak group used a complex virus system which was later named after them. It is not like the simple Trojan horse malware used to by-pass security systems, but something much more complex and unique, according to documents exclusively seen by RT.

Russian cyber-security company Kaspersky Lab was invited to look into the matter, after an ATM in the Ukrainian capital Kiev started giving out cash randomly without anyone inserting a card or touching any buttons in late 2013. Continue reading »

The initiative, announced by US President Barack Obama during a planned visit on Tuesday to the US Department of Homeland Security in Virginia, calls for new legislation to be adopted by Congress in order to enhance the sharing of electronic threat information between the private sector and the government, while also revamping the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, or CFAA – the 1984 federal law that outlines when and what hacking charges can be brought against suspected cyber criminals.

Breaking: Jihadist Group Hacks U.S. Central Command and Is Uploading Pentagon War Game Scenarios and Personal Details of Military Members (SHFTplan, Jan 12, 2015):centcom-hack-th

US Central Command (@Centcom), the unified military command responsible for security across the Arabian Peninsula and into the central Asia region, has had their Twitter account compromised. Cyber Jihadist claiming to be linked to ISIS were actively tweeting and uploading hacked war-game scenarios and other details that include phone numbers and email addresses for U.S. military personnel.

According to the hackers, the documents were obtained from a previous hack of Pentagon defense systems, as well as mobile devices owned by individuals working for or in conjunction with the military.

As of this writing, approximately one hour after the hack was first identified on the Centcom Twitter page, the account has been suspended and all linked data, including pictures releases of war game scenario and personal details of personnel are being wiped, presumably by U.S. National Security teams.

Defiant North Korea Says Can Prove It Is Not Behind Hack “Without Resorting To Torture Like The CIA” (ZeroHedge, Dec 20, 2014):

Just hours after the FBI announced that, with absolute certainty, it had determined that North Korea was behind the Sony hack, a “theory” that has become the butt of global jokes, we learned, in a far less prominent release, that according to an internal inquiry, FBI evidence if “often mishandled.” According to the NYT, “F.B.I. agents in every region of the country have mishandled, mislabeled and lost evidence, according to a highly critical internal investigation that discovered errors with nearly half the pieces of evidence it reviewed.

The evidence collection and retention system is the backbone of the F.B.I.’s investigative process, and the report said it is beset by problems.

It gets better: according to the report, the F.B.I. was storing more weapons, less money and valuables, and two tons more drugs than its records had indicated. Almost as if the FBI was siphoning off cash, while hoarding guns and blow. Continue reading »

–  The Interview Is “Desperately Unfunny”, “Will Flop” If Not Cancelled According To Leaked Sony Emails (ZeroHedge, Dec 19, 2014):

The conspiracy theories surrounding the story of The Interview’s cancellation in the aftermath of the North Korean “hacking” just keep getting stranger by the day, (and will, in 6-9, months lead to the blockbuster drama: “How ‘The Interview’ Got Cancelled“)

First, as we previously reported, at the same time as the NYT reported that according to the US the hack “undisputedly” originated in North Korea, Wired magazine released an article explaining why it is impossible to make such a determination (see Someone is Lying). That, however, did not stop the US on its inexplicable witch hunt, and moments ago Reuters reported that according to the US, it was indeed North Korea who was responsible for the hacks (although, the report adds, North Korea may have had a little help from China so nobody really know but whatever).

“Hey, fellow lizard-people [bankers, khazars, and other parasitic demons of this planet], we seem to be some 18 to 60 trillion dollars in debt. We desperately need a false flag scapegoat to blame for our impending financial collapse, now that BRICS are raining down on us. Let’s set up a global campaign of false flags, including cyberattacks and our pet armies of IS [let’s not degrade the name of the Goddess, please], leading up to our grand finale when we nuke wall street and send a fleet of MiG drones to attack European civilians, then we can implement the endgame of PNAC, because we have already lost to Eurasia economically and must start the main phase of WW-PNAC before BRICS military capability exceeds ours, which will happen very soon at the present rate.”

“For example, what happens if the same group […] decides to

Well, i dunno, why don’t you ask the programmers of STUXNET over at CIA-Mossad?
