PIN and password can be hacked via Wearable Device

A study reveals that the wearable device is prone to hacking. Unmitigated, ATM PINs and passwords can be hacked through these devices. These results revealed from the study titled “Friend or Foe ?: Your Personal Wearable Devices Reveal Your PIN”.

Scientist at Binghamton University and Stevens Institute of Technology collected data sensors in wearable devices, such as smartwatch and fitness trackers using the algorithm. The goal is to open a gap to obtain a PIN or password.

Researchers conducted an experiment in (key-entry) as much as 5,000 times in 20 adults who use the keyword-based security systems, such as ATMs, for 11 months.

The result is very accurate with an accuracy rate of 80 percent on the first try, and 90 percent after the third attempt.

Researchers have little information recording until the slightest movement of the accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnometer that is in wearable devices without the need to pay attention to his pose.

Researchers consists of Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Yan Wang, followed by Chen Wang, Guo Xiaonan, and Bo Liu of Thomas J Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University and Head of Research Yingying Chen of Stevens Institute of Technology.

They reveal, this is the first way that can reveal the PIN to exploit information from wearable devices without the need for contextual information

In internal attacks, hackers accessing wearable sensor devices worn on the wrist with malware. Malware will wait until the victim access security system with a password and sends back the sensor data.

In other attacks, hackers put a sniffer on the wireless security system to ‘eavesdrop’ sensor data that is sent to a Bluetooth mobile phone to the victim.

This study is fairly still at an early stage to understand the fragility of the security system of wearable devices.

Although they have yet to find a solution, the researchers suggest to the developers to inject some kind of ‘noise’ so that hackers can not read hand gestures. Developers are also advised to encrypt wearable devices and operating systems. “

Twitter Invest $70 Billion in SoundCloud

Twitter has invested approximately US $70 million in one of the music streaming service provider, SoundCloud. Value investing is called can still grow up to US $100 million.

Unfortunately, CEO TwitterJack Dorsey did not mention the details of the investment and the specific reasons behind the company’s decision. Even so, he agrees that Twitter now has a stake in SoundCloud.

SoundCloud spokesman also ensures Twitter has invested in SoundCloud. According to him, the two companies will facilitate and inspire today’s contemporary culture at the same time attract more people around the world.

This investment allows SoundCloud remain focused on building value-added, both for creators and listeners as well as continuing other initiatives such as launching a paid service called SoundCloud Go.

Although the plan has not been established Twitter through this investment, some analysts estimate this is how social media to attract more users.

Meanwhile, SoundCloud can see this investment as a move to introduce a new paid services to more people.

On the other hand, the condition of the two companies is also less well known. Twitter has just convicted Wall Street because it was unable to add users quickly.

So even with SoundCloud called not increased valuations, so it is rumored some investors are concerned with the growth of the company.

Actually, this is not the first time Twitter reportedly close to a streaming music service from German. Two years ago, Twitter was rumored to be buying SoundCloud, but the measure nevertheless turned out to do.

Worst hacker attacks in various countries

Worst hacker attacks

Fears the government in a number of countries over hacker attacks that would cripple critical infrastructure occurred in December 2015, when a further constant threat (advanced persistent threat, APT) attacks on the government of Ukraine.

Worst hacker attacks

The incident became the first cyber intrusion drop and turn off the power of a nation.

Using BlackEnergy malware, hackers remotely disconnect the power 225,000 users and flooded customer service with numerous phone calls to prevent the original customer calls.

In 2015 alone, the government of the United States, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Turkey became prey to DDoS attacks, which intends to create chaos and disrupt operations.

In January 2015 in Thailand, some demonstrators angry about the government’s court verdict and launch malicious attacks against 300 government websites.

In the same month, hackers affiliated with Anonymous also initiated a similar attack against the government of Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.

Web applications and virtual DDoS violations that exploit vulnerabilities in the public sector has become more frequent and damaging.

Global risk consultancy Control Risks (Control Risks Global Risk Consulting) in the map for 2016. The annual risk report said a third of the 36 percent of cyber attacks now targeting the government sector.

DDoS attacks are becoming a weapon of destruction to digital extortionists and terrorists. DDoS attacks come in different forms.

Some of them are intended to disrupt the system, while others flood the system with requests for multiple resources (bandwidth, processor time, disk space, etc.).

In Asia, the faster the APT attacks. Territorial dispute between China, India and Southeast Asian countries continues to increase.

The hacker group known as APT 30 in recent years have been using modular malware to obtain sensitive data from their targets, including government classified secret network.

Some cyber attacks consist of emails written in the language of the recipient containing documents looks legal, but contain malware.

The attackers also made Encryption worm-like, which is attached to the hardware, such as USB thumb drives and hard disks. Once these components are in contact with other systems, such attacks would spread.

Protection against DDoS and risk APT

Derek Manky, Global Security Strategist of Fortinet said a comprehensive approach and multi-layered is one of the best ways to improve the defense of cyber threats.

Effective defense is often found when building a cohesive framework of protection and additional protection.

This framework, he added, is very important because it combines the capabilities of today’s security – technology that began to emerge and have a learning mechanism – creating a follow-up of security intelligence of the new threats detected.

Other measures include the environmental aspects of the network and devise response plans. It’s important to secure the potential narrowing, network monitoring, and make sure they go beyond major attacks and mitigation plan.

It aims to complete removal of all DDoS traffic, the strategy should seek to maintain services – especially essential services – with little disruption.

Detailed plans should include backup and recovery, additional oversight, as well as ways to restore service as quickly and efficiently as possible.

A multi-layer strategy for DDoS protection also involves a dedicated on-premise solutions that are designed to maintain and reduce the threat from all corners of the network.

“IT administrators need to remember that it is not necessary for every employee to have access to certain resources that may contain sensitive data. By limiting access whenever possible, the organization can reduce a lot of attacks,” he added.

Governments need to carefully

A strong partnership with the service provider of security, said Manky also important. Partners can provide information up-to-date and threat intelligence to the IT staff, and determine when an incident reporting channel is detected.

The government agency also should partner proactive cyber security organizations and solution providers to share threat information, so that collectively, the industry can have a more comprehensive view of the global cyber threat landscape and respond better to attack.

Lastly, although the assessment and comprehensive plan can be developed, educate government officials on cyber threats is very important.

Employees with access to sensitive information should be specially trained to know how to handle such data. For example, limiting employee access to the USB drive is a good option to protect the network.

Because, APTs, worm outbreaks, DDoS, botnets, or inbound and outbound attacks today are more sophisticated and intrusive.

“Governments need to carefully consider their security posture, proactive and adopt a multi-layered approach to minimize the risks they face,” Manky lid.

In fact, the age of the application made by Evan Spiegel was only 4 years old. While Twitter is now treading the age of 10 years in cyberspace.

Based on Bloomberg lapaoran, Snapchat now has the number of daily active users were 150 million users.

While the number of active Twitter users is less than 140 million people per day. However, both Snapchat and Twitter has not made its comments on this.

Even so, the strong suspected that Twitter’s growth is not so high that one of the factors Twitter defeat on Snapchat.

In fact, it is considered a major factor Twitter has recorded a dismal performance on Wall Street. The growth of social networking users that Twitter was reportedly dropped dramatically compared to the past two quarters.

Meanwhile, Snapchat become one of the social networking service that diligently releasing new features and filters to attract the attention of users.

End of April 2015, Bloomberg also reported that all Snapchat users watched 10 billion videos per day. This figure rose dramatically from February 2015, in which as many as 8 billion videos are viewed by all Snapchat active users per day.

This month, the company is headquartered in Cupertino that employ a security expert who was given the task of strengthening the security features in Apple products.

A guy named John Callas was the founder of several companies such as PGPCorp communications security, Silent Circle, and Blackphone. A spokesman for Apple reveal, Callas began to join Apple in May of this. Actually Callas was once worked at Apple in the 1990s and between 2009 and 2011. At that time, he designed an encryption system to protect data storage on a Macintosh computer.

Even so, Apple does not disclose details on what position Callas will work. Callas himself refused to comment on this.

Previously, Apple had an argument with the US government over whether the company should facilitate access of law enforcement in relation to encrypting customer information stored in iPhone devices.

In the case of the shooting in San Bernardino, Apple refused to cooperate with the FBI and the government. Finally, the government is authorized to use the services of third parties to dismantle the encryption Apple.

Both the FBI and law enforcement alike asked technology companies to help the government in an effort to catch criminals. In response, Apple and other technology companies said that the opening of the encryption efforts it will endanger the continuation of the product and makes it vulnerable to hacker attacks.

Meanwhile, unknown Callas was an opponent of coercion by the government to the company technology to unlock the encryption products.

Apple itself has previously said that the company will improve the security of its products, as was done by WhatsApp encrypt messages so that more private and closed.
