Vietnamese Government Websites Defaced By Anonymous, AntiSec and HagashTeam Members

Anonymous, AntiSec and HagashTeam members have teamed up to deface several Vietnamese websites. The same defacement page was uploaded on each website on which the following message was written,

" [AntiSec]
Supported in an ambiguous and imprecise legislation, the Vietnamese Executive keeps a few years ago a strong repression against political activists, journalists, bloggers and human rights defenders.
The 1999 Criminal Code is used against those who raise their voices to denounce abuses of power and corruption.
Vietnam announced the release of over 18,200 prisoners, none of them political prisoner on the occasion of 70th anniversary of independence.
Among the released prisoners are murderers and drug traffickers, but none convicted of "propaganda against the state" or "intent to defeat the regime," two charges that the government often used against opponents.
"The Vietnamese President decided to release 18,198 prisoners, but none of them is related to national security," said Vice Minister of Public Security Le Quy Vuong, at a news conference in Hanoi.
Most presidential amnesty was in 2009 with 20,599 released prisoners, reminded the deputy minister.
"The amnesty reflects the humanitarian nature of the state and aims to convince the inmates to become useful citizens," said Gian Son, representative of the Presidency.
The defense of human rights organizations and Western governments often criticize Vietnam for its repression of dozens of jailed dissidents.

Anonymous is a complex idea, but who was born the concept of freedom of expression and has as its main pillar. We will not bring by bandits. We will not bring in by gang leaders.
But we will certainly bring us by those who are being accused of unfair and deceitful way just for expressing their identities and thoughts.

Beware of KFC Gift Voucher Whatsapp Scam

Recently one of my friends sent me a link on Whatsapp. Asking her what it was, she told me KFC was giving away Rs500 gift vouchers. Who wouldn't like to get such a gift?

Once I clicked on the link, I was directed on a page with the official KFC logo where I was asked to complete a 5 questions survey. Below are the screenshots of each page of the survey.

After completing the survey, I was asked to share this with 10 Whatsapp contacts. They even provided a share button for that and below it, a continue button. Clicking on the continue button, you are asked to provide an email address.  Once you enter your email, you would receive a series of emails containing unknown links to unknown websites.
Cybercriminal behind these types of scams usually earn money for each time a person complete the survey. We advise our readers to ignore the KFC Gift voucher, THIS IS SCAM. Below are  the links where i was directed.

Stagefright Vulnerability Exposes 950 Million Android Devices

Mobile security firm Zimperium has identified a series of critical remote code execution vulnerabilities affecting the Android operating system. These vulnerabilities are related to the Android media playback engine Stagefright. The Stagefright vulnerabilities affect 95% of the devices running Android which represents around 950 million devices.

The attack is delivered to the owners of Android devices via simple multimedia text and once it is delivered, hackers are able to write code to the device and steal data from sections which are connected with Stagefright. Attackers can get access to audio, media files or photograph stored on SDcards. Adding to this, hackers can also operate the Android device remotely.

“These vulnerabilities are extremely dangerous because they do not require that the victim take any action to be exploited. Unlike spear-phishing, where the victim needs to open a PDF file or a link sent by the attacker, this vulnerability can be triggered while you sleep,”

Google has already addressed the Stagefright vulnerabilities within 48 hours after they were notified but the firm believes that most manufacturers haven't yet taken reasonable steps to ensure if customer's data are safeguarded.
