10 July 2014 As we keep going deeper into this case on Intellectual Property Theft we have now identified 65 sources on the internet that contain this stolen logo. Less than 5 website owner have apologized for the unauthorized use of this logo. But many website owners and business are failing to report, until they realize that we are serious about getting local law enforcement involved.

Biggest Cyber Takedown in History

 

On November 8, a long-living botnet of more than 4,000,000 bots was taken down by the FBI and Estonian police in cooperation with Trend Micro a leader in the field of IT Security. This operation was known as Operation Ghost Click. As part of Operation Ghost Click two data centres located in New York and Chicago were raided and a command & control (C&C) infrastructure consisting of more than 100 servers was taken offline. At the same time the Estonian police arrested several members.

 

 

This e botnet consisted of infected computers whose Domain Name Server (DNS) settings were changed to point to foreign IP addresses. DNS servers resolve human readable domain names to IP addresses that are assigned to computer servers on the Internet. Most Internet users automatically use the DNS servers of their Internet Service Provider.
DNS-changing Trojans silently modify computer settings to use foreign DNS servers. These DNS servers are set up by malicious third parties and translate certain domains to malicious IP addresses. As a result, victims are redirected to possibly malicious websites without detection.

A variety of methods of monetizing the DNS Changer botnet is being used by criminals, including replacing advertisements on websites that are loaded by victims, hijacking of search results and pushing additional malware

Where do we draw the line between protecting user and putting users at risk? Has data protection stepped across the line and because our data protection experts have been so busy protection our data that they have now put laws in place the protect criminals and buy putting our data at risk?

Attackers have infected over 1 million cell phones in China with a malware virus. The virus sends out text messages automatically. When the malware infects the phones, it sends out information about the infected device SIM cards to the attackers. With the SIM information, the hacker can remotely send messages from the infected mobile phones.

The criminal behind this virus appear to be using this as way to make money because the phones are texting premium-rate numbers.

The virus spreads by texting everyone in the user’s phone book. So far it has been estimates that this virus has cost users over €220,000 Euro
