  1. Russian company Arusoft has released a new version of its DeUHD ripping tool which bypasses AACS 2.1. The new encryption version appeared last month on the UHD Blu-ray discs of Fury and The Patriot and couldn't be bypassed with existing tools. The new version makes it possible for pirates to rip the discs in question, which happened soon after. The ongoing battle between copyright holders and pirates is often described as a cat and mouse game, especially when it comes to content protection. Hollywood studios release their movies with copy protection. Pirates break it. New protection is released. Pirates break it again. And so forth. With UHD Blu-rays, copyright holders have long had the upper hand in this game. The discs are protected with AACS 2.0 encryption which was long believed to unbreakable. This changed late last year. While the encryption technically wasn’t ‘cracked,’ at least not publicly, various pirated UHD Blu-ray movies were released. After several years behind, the ‘pirates’ were in front again. Not much later, another breakthrough came when a Russian company released a Windows tool called DeUHD that could rip UHD Blu-ray discs. While this was initially another win for pirates, bad news was on the horizon. Last month, the UHD Bluray releases of the movies Fury and The Patriot came out with a new encryption version, labeled AACS 2.1. This addition made it impossible to rip the discs and some feared that bypassing the protection could take a long time. Yesterday, however, Arusoft released a new version of its DeUHD ripping tool that is now able to rip AACS 2.1 discs. TorrentFreak reached out to Arusoft who informed us that the AACS 2.1 discs come with a crucial difference. The main file has a fmts extension, an encrypted m2ts format, which contains forensic information. “t’s extension is fmts instead of m2ts because it contains some extra info used by studios to track the player used for decryption, which is the major difference from aacs2.0 discs,” Arusoft notes. “It is not too difficult to bypass this protection, just takes some time to do it,” they add. While Arusoft doesn’t condone piracy, as MyCE notes, the new DeUHD release opens the door for pirates to share releases to a wider audience. And indeed, a few hours ago several UHD Blu-ray rips of Fury have appeared online. Interestingly, there is some concern among the broader public whether this would be ‘safe’ or not. It’s obviously illegal, but the main worry is that AACS 2.1 presumably added forensic watermarks could help to identify the source of a leak. DeUHD’s developers, however, suggest that these data have been stripped. “All redundant data has been cleared from the disc,” Arusoft tells TorrentFreak. In a similarly worded statement, MyCE was informed that DeUHD “clears the garbage from the file” but other than that no definite claims were made. TorrentFreak previously reached out to the licensing outfit AACS LA to find out more about the new encryption. The company said it would review our request but has yet to comment. Source

  4. Facebook has started rolling out an update to its photo tagging system that will now scan newly uploaded photos and alert all the users it recognizes in that image by default. "These new features help you find photos that you’re not tagged in and help you detect when others might be attempting to use your image as their profile picture," said Joaquin Quiñonero Candela, Director, Applied Machine Learning at Facebook. Feature may actually prove helpful The Facebook photo tagging system works by scanning each image users upload on the site, looking for human faces. The system detects faces and computes a string of numbers (called template) for each face. It then compares this template to the face templates of other Facebook users and uses the results as friend suggestions for the photo tagger system. If a user wishes to tag a friend in the photo, that friend will receive a notification. The new system that Facebook has started rolling out will send notifications to all users found in newly uploaded photos, not just those that have been actively tagged. Facebook hopes this new tool will help curb abuse, bots, and account impersonators. A variation of this facial recognition system will also be deployed for users with visual impairments as well. Facebook will use the same facial recognition scanner to detect people not tagged in an image and inform the user who's in the photo. Rollout information The system will roll out to all countries except Canada and the EU, where the company has not deployed its photo-tagging mechanism —a basic facial recognition algorithm— due to local user privacy laws. The state of this new facial recognition system will be synced to the photo tag suggestions feature. Facebook says that if a user has photo tagging notifications disabled, he won't receive notifications when others upload photos of the user. The user must visit the Facebook settings page and change the status of the new Face Recognition option to his liking. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/technology/facebook-will-alert-you-when-someone-else-uploads-a-photo-of-you/

    AppGuard v4.1

    New Generation Protection Against Malware AppGuard is a revolutionary new software product that stops computer viruses and malware – even zero-day malware – from harming you and your PC. Developed by Blue Ridge Networks using patented cybersecurity technology, AppGuard provides advanced protection without scanning and updates. It isolates and contains malicious code, allowing users to work, bank, shop and surf online without concern about exposure to viruses on the public internet or on trusted websites. Numerous studies have confirmed there are literally dozens of new viruses and malicious software (zero-day malware) attacking users every minute. Current antivirus tools are unable to detect and stop these attacks for days during which time users are exposed to data theft, ID theft, and disruption. Until updates are downloaded to the antivirus software, users continue to be exposed to harmful exploits. AppGuard doesn’t need to identify the threat, scan for viruses, update its software, or disrupt your activities to provide its protection. It easily and transparently extends its protection to your complete computing and network environment including documents, attachments, downloads from the web, social network applications, and removable media like thumb drives, without disrupting their use. It is also compatible with most antivirus and whitelisting software which you can continue to use for off-line maintenance eliminating the need for burdensome real-time scanning overhead that offers no real protection from zero-day malware. AppGuard’s protection methods have been proven through several years of use by government, enterprises, and consumers without any reported failures. A leading IT industry analysis firm recently named AppGuard to its best practice Containment category for protection against malware. Get AppGuard if you want the peace of mind that you have the best zero-day malware protection in the marketplace.

  11. Scientists have developed an innovative firewall programme that can protect smartphones from malicious codes and security threats. Earlier this year, researchers from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in Israel discovered a security vulnerability in the internal communications between Android cellphone components and a phone's central processing unit (CPU). They alerted Android developer Google and helped the company address the problem. "Our technology doesn't require device manufacturers to understand or modify any new code," said Yossi Oren from BGU. "It's a firewall that can be implemented as a tiny chip, or as an independent software module running on the CPU," said Oren. Some 400 million people change their phone's components, such as touchscreens, chargers, and battery or sensor assemblies, which are all susceptible to significant security breaches and attacks. These components, referred to as "field replaceable units (FRUs)," communicate with the phone CPU over simple interfaces with no authentication mechanisms or error detection capabilities. A malicious vendor could add a compromised FRU to a phone, leaving it vulnerable to password and financial theft, fraud, malicious photo or video distribution, and unauthorised app downloads. "This problem is especially acute in the Android market with many manufacturers that operate independently," researchers said. "An attack of this type occurs outside the phone's storage area; it can survive phone factory resets, remote wipes and firmware updates. Existing security solutions cannot prevent this specific security issue," they said. "There is no way for the phone itself to discover that it's under this type of an attack. Our solution prevents a malicious or misconfigured FRU from compromising the code running on the CPU by checking all the incoming and outgoing communication," said Omer Schwartz from BGU. The research team uses machine learning algorithms to monitor the phones' internal communications for anomalies that may indicate malicious code. The software allowed them to identify and prevent hardware-generated data leaks and hacks. The researchers are seeking to further test the patent-pending technology with phone manufacturers.

  12. It is hard to believe that Google, a company that makes billions of dollars via advertising would ever think of blocking ads. However, for Google, it has always been a matter of ethics. One of the most ‘beloved’ brands and a company with international goodwill and credibility, Google recently announced that they now intend to block all ads on a website that does not meet certain advertising standards. And yes, this includes their own ads as well! Chrome Ad Blocker: A Game Changer Even if one ad on the website is not following the advertising standards, Google will block all ads on the website. How, you ask? Google plans to do this with the Chrome ad blocker. Google Chrome, the most popular web browser when it comes to the global markets is being used as a tool that will force unethical advertisers out of the markets, or to start adapting global advertising standards. Google has now taken the lead towards bringing in better advertising standards – the company tried throwing a couple of easy ones at the advertisers, but its now time for curve-balls. Google is now forcing unethical advertisers to mend their ways. While some believe they are taking an approach that is too strict by blocking all ads, sometimes this level of control is necessary. With the Chrome ad blocker, Google has taken a stance that places them at a moral high ground compared to competition such as Apple, Mozilla and Microsoft. While Google has announced this, Google has given advertisers time till early 2018 to fix all these ads that do not match the standards. Starting early 2018, Chrome ad blocker will make its debut which will ensure ‘ethical advertising’, if there is any such thing at all. This is the time the aforementioned competition can make use of to pull the rug from under Google’s feet. However, it would be interesting to see how they respond. For now, all eyes are on Google, and the company has indeed placed itself on a moral high ground. If Not Google, Who? Mozilla Tracking Protection, Maybe? Rumors of an ad blocker on Microsoft Edge have been around since 2016 but there has been no movement on this since. Apple, as we know them to be, are pre-occupied with various other major launches in the next few months, and going by Safari’s update history, it is unlikely that we might get to see something major like an ad blocker in the next few months. Mozilla however still has the chance. The Mozilla Tracking Protection has been around for a long while. A feature that works in the back end since 2015! Firefox, which is updated every month, is likely to rival Google’s Chrome Ad Blocker with their Mozilla Tracking Protection feature. This feature helps the users stay safe on the internet. Firefox browser automatically blocks all ads, analytics trackers and social share buttons that might lead you being tracked by the advertisers. While this has been a salient feature of the Mozilla Firefox web browser for about two years now, this is the time Firefox needs to take things out in the open, and present the Mozilla Tracking Protection feature as a rival to Chrome ad blocker from Google. The one limitation this has is that it works only on private browsing. Reports have said that Mozilla is working on taking it out of that mode, but there have been obstacles. Mozilla, you have 6 months to one-up Google and gain the moral high ground. In this age of intense competition, it would give Mozilla a major boost in its credibility if it were to do so!

  14. While operating systems and apps are more secure, the need for endpoint security remains. There has been a steady stream of reports and claims lately that many of us no longer need endpoint security, that antivirus (AV) programs on our PCs are worthless. Gizmodo flat out said that you really don't need an antivirus app anymore, arguing that Windows 10 and the browsers have tightened up security to the point that they adequately protect end users. Windows Central asked the same question, but determined that more protection is better than less. Tom's Guide was a little less sweeping, arguing that free antivirus programs are as effective as those charging an annual subscription of $50 per user or more. And security firm KnowBe4 said that most AV programs are useless against ransomware because it's such a different animal. So can you ditch the AV program? Nonsense, say security experts. "Would you tell your mom to remove the antivirus from her computer? No? Ok then," says Randy Abrams, an independent security consultant who previously worked for NSS Labs and ESET, the maker of the NOD32 antivirus program. He acknowledged that antivirus is far from perfect, but said it still protects against most threats. "They've been saying since early 2000s that antivirus is dead, it's not effective. The truth is it's effective against the vast majority of threats but not so much the brand new stuff," says Abrams. Abrams says that most malware is old, and a recent report from security firm WatchGuard confirms this. The company found that 30 percent of malware attacks in the fourth quarter of 2016 were zero-day exploits that couldn't readily be caught by antivirus programs. But that means 70 percent of malware attacks were not zero-days, and often these attacks were from virus strains that have been around for months if not years, which an AV program can catch. David Perry, an independent consultant who has worked for Symantec, McAfee, F-Secure, and Trend Micro, said has heard the 'AV is dead' refrain many times and it's never true. "Pretty much every year someone says antivirus is dead. With endpoint protection, we need to do everything. As good as your gateway protection might be, they still needed to clean up an infection on the desktop," he said. "Who has an alternative to sell that started the rumor this year?" he continues. "There are people in those industries who consider antimalware superfluous, but ask someone at a big bank or Boeing, they will agree that they need some way to clean malware off those desktops. They don’t want to have to flash them every day." Perry thinks we are headed to a future where client PCs will all use virtual desktops, so if you get an infection you simply reimage the PC. "That's what people on my level do but that's not an option for a law firm," he said, although eventually it will be. Abrams also felt ransomware can be handled without a malware product by keeping proper backups, so if a computer is hit with ransomware it can just be wiped and restored. Another proposed solution is whitelisting, where a security program only allows applications from a pre-approved list to run. This is the opposite of the blacklist method of antivirus, where executables are compared a list of known bad players and blocked if there is a match. The security company PC-Matic runs constant ads on cable news channels hyping its whitelisting security, but Perry thinks it's an unworkable solution. "If you do solid whitelisting, you don’t let anything [be] added to your system, so how do you get onto a web page because they all run JavaScript and Ajax. Are you going to stop using Netflix? It downloads Silverlight if you watch it on Windows 7. You're going to frustrate yourself all the time. There isn't one executable in a program. Microsoft Word isn’t one EXE; there are 150," he says. Still, malware continues to hit the internet and end users at an ever-increasing rate, the two say. "When I started, we saw 30 pieces [of new malware] a day. Now it's 150,000 a day if not more. By the time tomorrow comes it's all new again," said Perry. A lot of malware developer kits (yes they have those) allow for the constant generation of new, slight variants of the same malware, sometimes coming just five minutes apart. Abrams says 80 percent of the new malware samples sent in to antivirus companies are seen just once because of all the variants. "It's a zero-day but how many people does it affect? One," he says. Ransomware is a problem because it often involves suckering people into loading a malware package by visiting a website or clicking a link. And technology can't overcome stupidity. "Antivirus programs have improved a lot, but I'd say the level of ransomware hitting people is indicative that there are still problems. Technology has a hard time beating social engineering. To some degree it's perspective. It comes down to educating end users and that's tricky," says Abrams. Article source

  18. Avira Prime: First Look At Avira’s New Premium Service Avira Prime is a new subscription-based service by security company Avira that can best be described as a cross-platform all-in-one service. First, the basics: Avira Prime is available for 9.95 € per month for up to five devices, or 12.95 € per month for up to 25 devices, or yearly payments of 99.95 € / 129.95€ respectively. The service is available for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS operating systems. The available products differ slightly depending on the device. Windows users get access to Avira Antivirus Pro, Avira Phantom VPN Pro, Avira System Speedup Pro, and Avira Software Updater. Mac users get access to the first two programs. Avira Phantom VPN Pro is also included for Android and iOS; Android users get access to Avira Antivirus Security, Avira Optimizer Pro, and Avira AppLock+ Pro on top of that. Apple iOS device users get access to Avira Vault. Avira notes that the company's free services are also available to Prime users, and that they integrate "fully" with the service. Avira Prime Avira made the decision to integrate Antivirus Pro, and not the Internet Security Suite, or even Total Security Suite, with Avira Prime. Avira Prime is controlled via a central dashboard. It allows you to manage all devices and services, add or remove services, and use remote tools on top of that. Another benefit of being an Avira Prime customer is that Avira promises exclusive access to VIP customer support. You probably wonder how it stacks up against other company products. It is clear that you pay more if you would buy all the Avira products individually. A single device license of Avira Antivirus Pro for instance sets you back 34.95 per year. Add to that the monthly 7.95 € subscription fee for Avira Phantom VPN Pro, and you crossed the requested yearly price for Avira Prime already. If you add the other products, Avira System Speedup, Antivirus Pro for Android or Software Updater to the mix, you will definitely spend a lot more than what Prime costs per year. The question is whether you need all those products. The answer is yes if you are already invested heavily in Avira products. If you use Avira Phantom VPN Pro for instance, you pay about the same for Avira Prime if you make a yearly payment for the 5 devices subscription. It may also be a good deal if you are a user of the Total Security Suite, or a mix of other paid company products. Premium support, being first in any queue before any other support requests, may also be worth it depending on your requirements. Basically, if you pay about the same price already for Avira security products and services, then you may find Prime offering the better deal. Since you may install Prime products on up to five (or 25) devices, you may add them to family member devices as well, and control everything using the online dashboard. The situation is different if you are not invested in Avira products yet. Avira Prime is expensive; Avira advertises it as a premium service, and that it is definitely. Spending $100 for security on a home computer, even if it covers five devices and several products, is something that most computer users probably don't want to spend. Now You: What's your first impression of Avira Prime? Source
  19. Firefox To Get Option To Verify All Binaries To Protect Against Compromise Binary Transparency is an upcoming Firefox security feature that allows anyone to verify that Firefox has not been compromised. Mozilla is working on a new security project for Firefox, called Binary Transparency, currently to allow all Firefox users to verify the binary files of the web browser to ensure that the files are save and have not been tampered with. Firefox is an open source project. This means that anyone may build the browser from source, and even change code before that. Most Firefox users however don't do that. They download pre-compiled versions of the web browser that they download from Mozilla's own website, third-party sites, or even -- once installed -- using the automatic update feature of the web browser. Binary versions of Firefox don't come with any assurance that they correspond to the Firefox source code of that particular version of the browser. While users could in theory build Firefox from source to compare the downloaded binary version of Firefox with the version compiled from source, it is not really something that is very practical. Also, if you have the tools and knowledge to build Firefox from source, there is really no need to download the binary of the browser in first place. Firefox: Binary Transparency Mozilla plans to change that by adding a feature to the Firefox web browser that allows anyone to verify that the binary files are genuine and not compromised. The main idea is to log all Firefox binaries in a publicly verifiable log. Anyone may look it up, and compare the binary files of the local Firefox installation with the log data to make sure that the files are the same that any other user of the web browser got during download. While that is already helpful, plans are underway to implement that functionality in the Firefox updater as well. This means that Firefox's automatic update feature will verify any new update that it discovers before it is downloaded or installed on the user system. Mozilla details the logging and verification steps on the official Wiki entry of Binary Transparency. The process is technical, but it uses certificates, SHA256 hashes, a Merkle tree and unique domain names for each release. You can check out the details on the wiki page if you are interested in additional details. The verification process at its core requires that you verify one, some or all binary files of the release against the hash values of the public log file of that release. Again, there is more to the process than just described, so head over to the wiki for details on that as well. You may be interested in the meta tracking bug over on Bugzilla, as it highlights the progress made to implement the feature. A target milestone has not been announced yet. While you can use the feature to check Firefox binaries before download or updates, the feature may prove useful as well to check existing installations of the web browser. Now You: What's your take on Binary Transparency? Source

  23. A new technique for combating cybercriminals, developed by a researcher at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), could offer 100% protection against "cyberattacks launched through internet videos or images," the university announced Monday. Despite recent concerns about the safety of connected smart devices and the Internet of Things (IoT), a BGU press release claimed that attacks via internet video are currently a bigger threat to users. Ofer Hadar, chair of BGU's Department of Communication Systems Engineering, said in the release that downloaded photos and videos are increasingly becoming the pathway for hackers to deliver a cyberattack. "Hackers like videos and pictures because they bypass the regular data transfer systems of highly secure systems, and there is significant space in which to implant malicious code," Hadar said in the release. The latest group of WikiLeaks documents claim that organizations like the CIA are relying on IoT devices to spy on US citizens. However, the release said, attacks through video are a more concerning and far-reaching threat. BGU cited a recent Cisco report that claims video will make up 82% of all internet traffic by 2020, adding weight to the potential threat. The technique to combat the threat, which was developed by Hadar, relies on a set of algorithms to essentially keep the attack from extracting personal information through the compromised photo or video. These kind of threats are known as steganography, or attacks that hide malicious content in an unassuming carrier, such as a video or image file. "We are dealing nowadays with the use of steganography to insert malicious codes within videos and photos to attack the viewer," Hadar said in the release. "We have developed algorithms to find a solution to that problem in the 'compressed domain.' The idea is to manipulate the file's 'payload' to remove the malicious code without damaging the data quality." The approach is known as the The Coucou Project, the release said. If basic malware is present on a victim's server and is gathering classified information, the approach can prevent it from embedding that classified information in uploaded content. Additionally, if other types of compromised content are uploaded to a shared server, the technique could prevent them from extracting and running the malicious code embedded in the file, the release said. "Preliminary experimental results show that a method based on a combination of Coucou Project techniques results in virtually 100 percent protection against cyberattacks," Hadar said in the release. "We envision that firewall and antivirus companies will be able to utilize Coucou protection applications and techniques in their products." While its application is fairly broad, the new approach doesn't necessarily account for all types of cybersecurity attacks. However, if successful as a commercial product, the technique could become a valuable weapon in enterprises across the world. Source
  24. Mozilla: People Have No Idea How To Protect Their Privacy And Security Online Privacy and security are major concerns when it comes to life online, but a survey by Mozilla reveals that a worrying number of people do not know how to stay in control of them. The company also found that a third of people feel they have no control over their information online, with a similar number confessing to knowing "very little" about encryption. But these are not the only concerns of internet users. Mozilla also asked about people's greatest online fears. Topping the list is "being hacked by a stranger" (a fear held by 80 percent of people), and "being tracked by advertisers" (61 percent). As well as presenting the results of its survey, Mozilla also has some important advice. The survey results reveal the thoughts of 30,000 internet users. Mozilla notes: "We recycle passwords, we run outdated software and we volunteer personal information for a free coupon. If this same carelessness carried over to the physical world, our wallets might be a lot lighter. And our neighbors might know a lot more about us than we want. Why is that? And what can we do to fix it?" To answer "why?", the answer seems to be ignorance -- perhaps with a dash of laziness when it comes to self-education. 90 percent of people said they don’t know much about how to protect themselves online -- Mozilla says that a good starting point is to ensure that all software is kept fully up to date. Privacy is also a major concern with people feeling a general lack of control over their personal information -- Mozilla suggests using private browsing modes. While a third of people admitted to knowing nothing, or next to nothing about encryption, Germans are usually clued up: 85 percent of German respondents have some knowledge of encryption. Despite a generally poor knowledge of security, most people (two thirds) said they would not be willing to attend a training session to learn about secure tools. We've already mentioned some of the fears people have, and other interesting findings include the revelation that 40 percent of people are concerned about being harassed online. 7 percent fear friends or family accessing private accounts. It seems that the internet -- as well as how it has developed, and how data is used -- has turned us into a paranoid bunch. Asked who they would trust for information about online privacy, 56 percent would turn to non-profits, 13 percent would trust the government, and a mere 5 percent would put their faith in social media. Check out the full results of the survey in Mozilla's post on Medium. Source
