Huge NSA-exploit born botnet turns to mining cryptocurrency

Cyber hackers are coming up with more and more cryptocurrency mining malware and someone has spread their malware using the EternalBlue exploit which was developed by the infamous NSA (this is the same exploit method used to spread the WannaCry ransomware attack that occurred months ago). Over half a million Windows computers have now been forced to mine the virtual currency and is probably going to end up being very profitable for the cyber criminal. It’s almost as if that majority of people benefiting from this cryptocurrency bubble is...

After reports out of Africa on how the Chinese government had been spying on the African Union’s headquarters based within Addis Abada had spread, China has responded by calling the report “preposterous” and “very difficult to understand” all while strongly dismissing the “absurd” report. All of this was brought to surface before the 2018 AU Summit, a twice yearly meeting which was being held within the AU headquarters built by the Chinese as a “gift” to their “Friends of Africa”... 
 

Online Pharmacy & NFL Jersey Scams Pollute the Internet

We were hacked! We do an audit of seczine.com every now and then, obviously not often enough based on what we found. Essentially a year ago, Feb 2017, there was a version of WordPress that allowed the bad guys to edit your posts remotely, we updated our site a few weeks after the fix was made widely available, our bad. In the meantime the bad guys had been busy, a huge number of our web pages were updated, we caught the obvious stuff pretty quickly because it was script kiddies defacing entire webpages, so the impact was very noticeable. We were...

How My Bank Got Hacked!

I work for a US bank in their security operations team, a couple of years ago we got hacked. This is my story I how we got hacked, how we tracked down the breach, what we did wrong, what we did right and the lessons learnt. I got the call on an early summer morning I was still asleep when all hell broke loose, we had been hacked, we had lost millions of our users personal identification details, including emails, addresses and phone numbers. As we would find out later our users would be targeted in penny stock pump and dump scams, targeted emails... 
 

My WordPress Site Has Been Hacked! Help!

Don’t Panic! Keep Calm, sort it out step-by-step. Recently our website was hacked and defaced. We should have been on alert as the Google Webmaster website sent us a message to update our WordPress site to the latest version, which is the first time they sent us a warning in all the years we have been registered with them. That alone should have been enough to get us to do something, but alas we had other things on the agenda, and didn’t get around to it. Bad move. We were hacked and most likely you were hacked by a script, an automated... 
 

Cyber Security Conference – cyph3r

As a cyber security guy I always start the year looking at what security conference are coming up in the next 12 months, just so I can plan my itinerary. You always get the SANS events which are always good quality, especially their training sessions, although they can be a tad expensive. You also get the specialist events, those focused on encryption, those focused on regional forums and more recently those focused on Crypto-currencies like BitCoin or DodgeCoin, which, if you are interested in those fields that’s great, but not of an interest...
