  1. Cybersecurity isn't easy. If there was a product or service you could buy that would just magically solve all of your cybersecurity problems, everyone would buy that thing, and we could all rest easy. However, that is not the way it works. Technology continues to evolve. Cyber attackers adapt and develop new malicious tools and techniques, and cybersecurity vendors design creative new ways to detect and block those threats. Rinse and repeat. Cybersecurity isn't easy, and there is no magic solution, but there are a handful of things you can do that will greatly reduce your exposure to risk and significantly improve your security posture. The right platform, intelligence, and expertise can help you avoid the vast majority of threats, and help you detect and respond more quickly to the attacks that get through. Challenges of Cybersecurity Effective cybersecurity is challenging for a variety of reasons, but the changing perimeter and the confusing variety of solutions don't help. Long ago, during a time that is all but a distant memory by tech standards, cybersecurity was built around a concept of inside vs. outside, and us vs. them. The servers, applications, users, and data inside the network were inherently trusted, and everything outside of the network was assumed to be a potential threat. The advent of free public Wi-Fi, portable laptops, mobile devices, and cloud computing have eroded the idea that there is any sort of perimeter, and most attacks leverage valid credentials and appear to be legitimate users, so the old model of defending the perimeter is no longer valid. Meanwhile, as new platforms and technologies are developed, cybersecurity vendors inevitably create targeted point solutions for each one. The result is a confusing mix of tools and services that protect specific facets of the environment, but don't play well with each other and don't provide a holistic view of the whole infrastructure so you can understand your security posture as a whole. The constantly expanding and evolving threat landscape doesn't make it any easier, either. Attacks are increasingly complex and harder to identify or detect—like fileless or "Living off the Land" (LotL) attacks. The complexity of the IT infrastructure—particularly in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment—leads to misconfiguration and other human error that exposes the network to unnecessary risk. Attackers are also adopting machine learning and artificial intelligence to automate the process of developing customized attacks and evading detection. Improve Your Cybersecurity All of that sounds daunting—like cybersecurity is an exercise in futility—but there are things you can do. Keep in mind that your goal is not to be impervious to attack—there is no such thing as perfect cybersecurity. The goal is to increase the level of difficulty for an attacker to succeed in compromising your network and to improve your chances of quickly detecting and stopping attacks that occur. Here are 5 tips to help you do that: Assess your business objectives and unique attack surface — Choose a threat detection method that can address your workloads. For instance, cloud servers spin up and spin down constantly. Your detection must follow the provision and deprovision actions of your cloud platform(s) and collect metadata to follow events as they traverse this dynamic environment. Most SIEMs cannot do this. Eliminate vulnerabilities before they need threat detection — Use vulnerability assessments to identify and remove weaknesses before they become exploited. Assess your full application stack, including your code, third party code, and code configurations. Align data from multiple sources to enhance your use cases and desired outcomes — Collect and inspect all three kinds of data for suspicious activity: web, log, and network. Each data type has unique strengths in identifying certain kinds of threats and together present a whole picture for greater accuracy and actionable context. Use analytics to detect today's sophisticated attacks — ensure your threat detection methods look at both real-time events and patterns in historical events across time. Apply machine learning to find what you do not even know to look for. If you use SIEM, enlist machine learning to see what correlation missed and better tune your SIEM rules. Align security objectives to your business demands — There is more than one way to improve your security posture and detect threats. While SIEMs are a traditional approach, they are most useful for organizations that have a well-staffed security program. A SIEM alone is not the best solution for security monitoring against today's web applications and cloud environments. 5 Recommendations to Strengthen Your Security Program Jack Danahy, Senior Vice President, Security for Alert Logic, recently presented a webinar titled "Five Recommendations to Strengthen Your Security Program." If you want to learn more about the challenges organizations, face today with cybersecurity, and what you can do to improve your security posture, check out the recording of the webinar. Source
  2. Hi guys, I'm here with a general topic which concerns everybody.

  3. Gotcha Data Backup This is a tool I created many years ago to provide Data Backup capabilities from within the WinPE Environment as well as within a running Windows Environment. It can also detect Windows installations on External or slaved drives as well. It is useful for users that will be reinstalling a computer or when they need to transfer their data to a new computer. GotchaDATA.exe is a completely portable file. It should work in any windows version from Windows 2000 and newer. It should work in most if not all WinPE Environments. It does not require any .NET installations. Gotcha Data Backup is meant to backup all of the most important areas of the user profiles. For instance... Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Videos, Music, Pictures, Favorites, Internet Favorites/Bookmarks, Microsoft Office PST Files and profile settings, Mapped Drives, and more. It also has the ability to backup some important System Files and settings. For instance... Windows and Microsoft Office Product Keys, System Drivers, Fonts, WiFi Profiles, and so on. A great advanced capability is the option to Move files instead of Copy files. This comes in handy if you will be reinstalling a computer without formatting the drive. Since Gotcha will quickly be able to move the files you need backed up into a folder on the same drive very quickly. This can save you hours gathering the backup if you use the normal copy operation that other backup tools use. Once you have created your backup you will notice it creates a folder in the location you chose called "Gotcha!". In this folder you will have a new file called GotchaRESTORE.exe which is what you will use when you are logged into the Windows User account you wish to restore data to. It will ask you for the path of the Backup. Just browse into this "Gotcha!" folder and select the Dated folder of your backup. Next you just select the profile you will be backing up. Now select any System or User files you wish to restore. Gotcha does not restore Product Keys... so you can browse through your dated backup folder and find the "System\Keys.ini" file which has the keys in it. Also Drivers are backed up in "System\Drivers". You will be able to restore them using the built in Windows method for restoring Drivers. Changelog: Recently added code to scan desktop shortcuts to remove internet browser shortcuts that are routing to an external website. To help prevent the spread of viruses to the new system. This is only in beta at the moment and will be improved upon in the future. I plan to use code from my Uninfector program to implement virus scanning into the backup process Re-Compiled GotchaDATA.exe with a new digital signature to help prevent false positives in some antivirus programs. If you get any false positives from your antivirus programs please submit it to them so they can whitelist GotchaDATA.exe. HOMEPAGE DOWNLOAD regards
  4. Master Keys for Wallet Ransomware Posted to BleepingComputer Forums (May 18, 2017) Decryption keys for Wallet ransomware have been posted to the BleepingComputer online forums. It is not clear exactly why the malware creators have released the keys. The ransomware family of which Wallet is a part often releases keys when it has switched to a new extension. The attackers may also have surmised that they are not going to make any more money from that particular variant. Source
  5. Users are reporting success activating clean installations of Windows 10 using old license keys, and specifically those that apply to Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. This method continues to work even after the Creators Update, which is the second major upgrade to Windows 10 since it was made available to the public in July 2015 (the first one was the Anniversary Update). Microsoft made it known that Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 users would have a full year to upgrade their PCs to Windows 10 at no cost. Technically that offer expired around nine months ago. Be that as it may, users have been finding ways to install Windows 10 for free or at a lower cost than purchasing a brand new license. One of those ways is by taking advantage of Microsoft's grace period for anyone who uses assistive technologies. Microsoft continues to offer free upgrades in such cases, and since this is based on the honor system—Microsoft does not take any steps to verify that a user qualifies—it is up to each user's own moral compass whether to go this route or not. With Microsoft still allowing Windows 10 to activate with old Windows keys, users may find it less expensive to purchase a Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 license online. We did a quick web search and were able to find a Windows 7 Pro OEM key for less than $10. Whether using an old key is completely legal or not is up for debate. There is also the risk of Microsoft could update its servers to block Windows 10 activations with old Windows keys. We'd be surprised if it did, as Microsoft seems much more interested in getting as many people on Windows 10 as possible. It has a longer term game plan in mind, with a stated goal of having 1 billion active Windows 10 devices in the next 15 months. At present, there are 400 million active Windows 10 devices, according to Microsoft's latest official update. Article source
  6. In 2012, New Zealand police seized computer drives belonging to Kim Dotcom, copies of which were unlawfully given to the FBI. Dotcom wants access to the seized content but the drives are encrypted. A judge has now ruled that even if the Megaupload founder supplies the passwords, they cannot subsequently be forwarded to the FBI. During the raid more than two years ago on his now-famous mansion, police in New Zealand seized 135 computers and drives belonging to Kim Dotcom. In May 2012 during a hearing at Auckland’s High Court, lawyer Paul Davison QC demanded access to the data stored on the confiscated equipment, arguing that without it Dotcom could not mount a proper defense. The FBI objected to the request due to some of the data being encrypted. However, Dotcom refused to hand over the decryption passwords unless the court guaranteed him access to the data. At this point it was revealed that despite assurances from the court to the contrary, New Zealand police had already sent copies of the data to U.S. authorities. In May 2014, Davison was back in court arguing that New Zealand police should release copies of the data from the seized computers and drives, reiterating the claim that without the information Dotcom could not get a fair trial. The High Court previously ruled that the Megaupload founder could have copies, on the condition he handed over the encryption keys. But while Dotcom subsequently agreed to hand over the passwords, that was on the condition that New Zealand police would not hand them over to U.S. authorities. Dotcom also said he couldn’t remember the passwords after all but may be able to do so if he gained access to prompt files contained on the drives. The police agreed to give Dotcom access to the prompts but with the quid pro quo that the revealed passwords could be passed onto the United States, contrary to Dotcom’s wishes. Today Justice Winkelmann ruled that if the police do indeed obtain the codes, they must not hand them over to the FBI. Reason being, the copies of the computers and drives should never have been sent to the United States in the first place. While the ruling is a plus for Dotcom, the entrepreneur today expressed suspicion over whether the FBI even need the encryption codes. “NZ Police is not allowed to provide my encryption password to the FBI,” he wrote on Twitter, adding, “As if they don’t have it already.” Source
  7. Google's Android Mobile operating system for smartphones and tablets have Google's own Play Store that provides its Android users the most visible way to access the world of millions of apps. App developers produce more than thousands of applications each year, but majority of newbie and unprofessional developers use unsafe, unreliable, and insecure coding practices, as many developers store secret keys in their apps that could potentially allow cybercriminals to steal users’ sensitive data. A team of researchers from the computer science department of the Columbia University havediscovered a critical security problem in the Google’s official Android app store from where millions of Android users download various apps. Researchers have found that most of the Android application developers often store their secret keys in their app's code, similar to usernames/passwords information, which could be then used by any bad actor to maliciously steal users’ information or resources from the service providers such as Amazon and Facebook. These vulnerabilities in the implementation of the Android applications can affect users even if they are not actively using the Android apps. Even "Top Developers" designated by the Google Play team as the best developers on Google Play, included these vulnerabilities in their apps, according to the researchers. Google play store contains millions of apps, including free and paid apps, and over 50 billion app downloads. “But no one reviews what gets put into Google Play—anyone can get a $25 account and upload whatever they want. Very little is known about what's there at an aggregate level," said Jason Nieh, professor of computer science at New York-based Columbia Engineering. Researchers built and make use of a tool called PlayDrone, the first scalable Google Play store crawler tool that uses various hacking techniques to deceive the security measures that Google uses to prevent indexing of its Google Play store content. One can successfully download Google Play store content and recover their sources. (Slides) (Download PlayDrone) "We have been working closely with Google, Amazon, Facebook and other service providers to identify and notify customers at risk, and make the Google Play store a safer place," said one of the researcher, Nicolas Viennot. "Google is now using our techniques to proactively scan apps for these problems to prevent this from happening again in the future." PlayDrone managed to download more than 1.1 million Android apps and decompile over 880,000 free applications and analyzing over 100 billion lines of decompiled code. WHAT GOOGLE SHOULD DO? With the widely spread platform of Android operating system in the mobile phones, no doubt it’s become an easy target for cybercriminals. Now, this weakness in the practices of apps development found on the official Google play store is icing on the cake for cybercriminals. I would not call it a vulnerability in the Google play store because its not flaw in their server or network, rather it’s the fault of app developers, who take their users’ data security as granted and Google itself, which approves apps with weak development practices and have never implement any strict guidelines to stop developers from doing so. Google should actively encourage and enforce new policy on the app developers, so that they give top priority to their users’ data security and any violations to the policy could lead to suspension of that developer’s licence.
