FTC Opens Probe into Equifax Data BreachApache Struts flaw was known to be critical and should have been addressed, security researchers say.The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has launched a formal investigation into the massive data breach of Equifax, which yesterday confirmed its failure to address a previously disclosed Apache Struts vulnerability that was exploited in the attack.Meanwhile, Equifax share prices continued to plummet this week - now 35% lower than before the breach - in an ominous sign of the breach's potential finanical devastation to the credit-monitoring firm.

In the future, intelligence services might use the internet of things for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and targeting for recruitment, says James Clapper, US director of national intelligence.

MIGHT USE INTERNET TO SPY?
WASHINGTON WikiLeaks on Tuesday released thousands of documents that it said described sophisticated software tools used by the Central Intelligence Agency to break into smartphones, computers and even Internet-connected televisions.
If the documents are authentic, as appeared likely at first review, the release would be the latest coup for the anti-secrecy organization and a serious blow to the C.I.A., which maintains its own hacking capabilities to be used for espionage.

RANSOMWARE EXPLODINGRansomware is profitable PCs and MACs both attacked Encrypts data to deny access to data users Half of financially motivated malware is ransomware Average ransom: $300 2015, $1000 2016 70% of Enterprise victims paid 45% of Enterprise victims paid over $20K
Defense: App white listing or trust lists (top defense US-CERT) Use OpenDNS and similar tools Backups; however, cloud backups and storage are
also being attacked (airgap?)

APP CONTROL RECOMMENDED AS #1 MITIGATION STRATEGY
Run only known trusted apps
The Australian Government issued mandatory application whitelisting usage requirements to protect their high value systems
NEXT GENERATION WHITE LISTINGTRUSTED APP TECHNOLOGY
Run only trusted apps or scripts
Pull rather than push trust lists to ensure updates
Handles application updates automatically
Allow trust of applications, application families (e.g., Microsoft Office), or software publishers
Crowdsourcingallow individuals and organizations to publish their own trusted app lists
Allow organization to control which lists to use

RISK FROM CONNECTED MEDICAL DEVICES

SMART TV SECURITY CONCERNS
Microphone may always be on (for voice commands)
Risk that attacker could turn on webcam
Activity on Smart TV is tracked and may be shared with social media
Like with smartphones, malicious apps could be downloaded
Smart TVs in the office: Consider not connecting to Internet; if you do, connect to a
Guest network Take care as to which features and apps are enabled Turn off or disable microphone and webcam If possible, lockout others from changing TV settings
CLOUDPETS TEDDY BEAR HACKED
Hackers hold MILLIONS of voice recordings to ransom after creepy CloudPets teddy bears leak private data of parents and children Leak left private messages of families exposed online
for several days Leak also exposed 800,000 account email addresses
and passwords The company 'Spiral Toys' has chosen not to tell
affected families Hackers have now taken the database down and
demanded a ransom of $1190 in bitcoins from parents

The exposed database was easy for cyber-criminals to find using a search engine called Shodan, which is designed to find unprotected websites and databases
VULNERABLE SMART THERMOSTAT RISKS
. . .The HVAC system dormant hoursin other words when the climate control is off or in standbywould at the minimum be a security risk because it could give a potential robber times when the home may be empty.
An expensive problem that could be created through a thermostat hack is that malicious damage could be launched by raising temperatures too high or low. Winter-time damage could include freezing, burst water pipes.

CONNECTED CARS ARE AT RISK
As the researchers stated, the remote hacks likely work on all Tesla models, but on the parked Model S P85, the researchers remotely opened the sunroof, turned on the turn signal, and changed the position of the drivers seat.

THERE IS A DARK SIDE
INSECURE IOT DEVICES AND PRIVACY
All too often for other pieces of major industrial machinery, the controls are sitting there in plain sight or hidden behind the most rudimentary credentials. In 2012, simply attempting to log in as root or admin, with the password being the same again, was sufficient for another group of anonymous internet explorers to gain access to over 400,000 devices. With the rise of internet-connected devices since this study was conducted, that number is likely to be far higher.
