  Trade.io Suffers Breach
Posted by: Sh7ank-Z0id - 4 hours ago - Forum: News - No Replies

      Continuing with the trend of crypto hacks, there has yet another, unknown attackers breached Trade.io and pilfered 50 million tokens worth 11 million dollars. Trade.io is a Swiss based crypto exchange. Investigators found that the attackers breached a cold wallet that belonged to the company. They noticed the breach on Oct, 20th, when they observed a massive transfer from one of the cold wallets reserved for the liquidity pool. Before they could react, there were massive token transfers to multiple exchanges. Trade.io acted and reported the incident to the exchanges, KuCoin, and Bancor. The two exchanges quickly halted the trading of TIO tokens. 



   At the time of the hack, the 50 million tokens that were stolen were worth 11 million dollars, but within a few hours of the breach, it dropped to 7.5 million. Trade.io did confirm that no customer data or wallets were affected in the breach. As a result of the breach, Trade.io has decided to fork the TIO tokens and will be coming out with a new and more secure one. The new forked token is to be called Trade Token X with the ticker TIOx, like the TIO it will be an ERC-20 token. 




   That was the news folks, take it easy, and stay safe out there.

  Global Losses to Hacker at 1.8 Billion
Posted by: Sh7ank-Z0id - Yesterday, 02:22 PM - Forum: News - No Replies

[Image: News.jpg.jpg?width=400&height=225]

    The last several years, the world has seen a major increase in hacking related incidents; this is due to the rising popularity of the trade itself, and to governments, terrorist groups, and organized criminals realizing the importance of a hacker in as an asset. We are entering the digital age, and in this new world we find ourselves walking a tightrope. One that is easily snapped, if the wrong key is pushed at the wrong time. 


  At the HackIT 4.0 conference in Kiev, Ukraine, hackers, tech lovers and all met up to share ideas, see hackers take a go at each other, and also got to go see Chernobyl...seriously..that's pretty cool. At this conference it was also concluded that global losses to hacking related attacks was at 1.8 billion. This was mostly from crypto-currency block chains, wallets, and ICOs. These are popular targets these days; and there is nothing that hackers or criminals love more than untraceable funds. While this is still a volatile currency, its predicted that its value will jump to almost 180 billion by 2025 and almost 3 trillion by 2030. Now those are some attractive numbers, you could see now why its so sought after; the digital age pampers the criminal just as much as the average person. 


  In the coming years, technology as well as hackers will see a great change, in defense and in attack. We could see weaponized AI, utilized for breaching networks, or imagine one designed for social engineering. The possibilities where that is concerned are endless. On top of that, if driverless cars got off the ground, then a world where these could get hacked would cause serious problems. Back to my "bomb scenario", more casualties would mount if the hospital isn't operational, but it wouldn't even matter if the EMTs cannot even get to the hospital because of clogged traffic. There are ways that you could get around it, but the variables are too many, and the process to implement them would be a headache. Sadly we can only predict the context of the event itself, but not an actual event happening, again the digital age is no place for society to be naive. Ten years ago, the most dangerous thing you could give a terrorist was a bomb, give them a hacker then have the two work in tandem, now the doomsday scenarios can be put in motion. 


   But, with this said, there will be innovation on the side of defense, this we know. We are in a Cyber-arms race right now, and as of now the bad guys seem to be winning. The only things we can do, is be safe, stay vigilant, and innovate. 

   That was the news, stay safe out there folks..and have a good week.

  Increase Seen in Tech Support Scams
Posted by: Sh7ank-Z0id - 10-21-2018, 01:54 PM - Forum: News - Replies (2)

[Image: News.jpg.jpg?width=400&height=225]



    Occasionally, something happens on our smartphone or computer, causing panic to ensue and you go and seek a solution, this is where tech support comes in. They are the people who will likely purvey the solution to your problem, but on the one hand, what if you encounter someone who just wants to provide you with more problems? 

  Enter, Tech Support scams, people who just want your money, and likely want to give you a healthy exposure to a nasty virus. How these work is that the user will see a pop-up, telling them there is something wrong with your device, and will offer to troubleshoot the problem, this typically leads the user to download a type of malware, likely a ransomware. Scammers have seen an uptick in recent years; with society becoming so reliant on technology we are too quick to walk into a scam. 

  Scammers utilize a small degree of tactics to spread malware and steal information, and this is all dependent on the user that they have gotten to know too well. Scammers will often pose as an representative from a fake company, will lead you to believe there is something wrong, and that they can provide a solution... for a fee. Now most "actual" tech support outlets will provide their service for free, so one major red flag is them noting a service cost. On top of this, some users who go searching on forums and find themselves lead to a malicious site. Cyber-criminals have gotten pretty smart at getting links to dangerous sites to rank very high on search results. So pay attention to where the link is leading to. There are some ways to see past a lot of the lying: 


  

  • When needing help with any purchased software, look at the packaging which accompanied the software for the accurate web address or customer support line.

  • Be careful when paying for tech support. A large number of tech support assistance is free, so always investigate on this issue.

  • Skip all links and go directly to the source. Manually input  the address of the company you want to contact into the address bar of your browser. The search bar can pull up false results, so be cautious.

  • Links are not trustworthy. Always check links before clicking them.

  • Some scammers will call you first, and impose tech-related problems on you. Be wary of such, and never trust any “support” makes the first call.



     That was the news, have a good Sunday everyone.

    A 21 year old man by the name of Colton Grubbs was sentenced to 30 months in prison, for computer related money laundering, and illegal removal of property in order to prevent seizure. He pleaded guilty to authoring a sophisticated Remote Access Trojan (RAT) called LuminosityLink. He marketed and sold the software, giving unknown customers the ability to use the software as a remote keylogger. Aside from this, LuminosityLink could also perform surveillance on a victim's computer, this includes the microphone, viewing and downloading files, as well as stealing names and passwords. Colton Grubbs admitted to having sold the software to over 6000 customers in the US. 

   As required by law, Colton Grubbs will serve 85% of his sentence, afterwards he will be under 3 years of parole, and will have to forfeit 725,000 dollars worth of bitcoin, which was acquired by the FBI.

  Scottish Ambulance Service Suffers Breach
Posted by: Sh7ank-Z0id - 10-15-2018, 02:22 PM - Forum: News - Replies (2)

    Personal information of workers of the Scottish Ambulance Service was exposed in a data breach today. It is unknown whether it was due to a malicious actor or actors, on October 12th the NHS Ambulance Services Trust emailed all of its staff of the breach. It was stated by BBC news that names and phone numbers of all workers was available on their website that was accessible by the general public. As far as the investigation has revealed, no patients' information was affected. 


  This is yet another hit on the medical sector of a country, whether it was a random bug in the system or a targeted operation by hostile actors, it must be put forth that the medical sectors practice absolute cyber-safety, whilst in the work place and at home. This is imperative in a world where zero trust in necessary. 


  The medical sector is and always will be a target, of malicious actors of every caliber. If there was a bombing, and the hospitals in the surrounding area suffered a massive breach, so bad that they couldn't operate, it would be catastrophic.


  That was the news folks, stay safe out there and have a good week.
