The attack took place last week and the intruder accessed administrative functions and information from one of 4Chan's databases.According to the blog post, the intruder stated that their motive was to expose the posting habits of a user who they dislike.
"After careful review, we believe the intrusion was limited to imageboard moderation panels, our reports queue, and some tables in our backend database. Due to the way the intruder extracted information from the database, we have detailed logs of what was accessed.

We are tired of watching our own fall.
We are tired of banks, corporations, and it's figureheads, deciding the outcome of a country, when it should be the people who decide their countries history.
We stand alongside the occupy movement, we stand with them in this fight. This is a call of general strike; against the 1%
We ask the citizens of all nations to refrain from banks, to refrain from shopping, to boycott films, music, video games and others of category.
The 1% need to realize the essential, and that essential, is that without the 99%, without us; they are nothing.
We encourage the citizens of all nations to both organize and plan this week, and to execute their movements on May 1st.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Reader Hacked [Video]

Security researchers from SRLabs posted a video on YouTube demonstrating how they tricked the scanner with a fake fingerprint made of wood glue.They stated in the video that the same approach was used in the iPhone 5s Touch ID last year.According to the researchers, fingerprints left by the owner on the phone can be snapped with a camera giving an image of sufficient quality to print a usable mold.The wood glue is then poured into it and the replica received is then swiped on the scanner.After authentication, the attacker can use sensitive application on the phone,such as PayPal. The video below shows how the security researcher managed to trick the fingerprint scanner and uses PayPal.
PayPal responded to this video by issuing the following statement,
"PayPal never stores or even has access to your actual fingerprint with authentication on the Galaxy S5. The scan unlocks a secure cryptographic key that serves as a password replacement for the phone. We can simply deactivate the key from a lost or stolen device, and you can create a new one. PayPal also uses sophisticated fraud and risk management tools to try to prevent fraud before it happens. However, in the rare instances that it does, your eligible transactions are covered by our buyer protection policy."

Beware of Heartbleed Spam

Users are being advised to stay alert because cybercriminals are taking advantage of the heartbleed vulnerability to get victims. They did this using their old technique, that is, spamming. Rob VandenBrink from SANS Institute published a reminder to warn users to be on their guard. He stated that he started receiving emails asking him to change his password on services where he does not have any accounts. These emails had helpful links, back-ended by malware or credential harvesting.
He is also advising users not to click on links in emails,
" Helpful emails with links in them are in most cases NOT helpful.  Don't click that link!
If it's legitimate, and especially this week, by all means browse to the affected site and change your password.  That's always a good idea.  But following an email link to a password change page is a good way to get your credentials stolen, or a good way to pick up a nice "gift" of malware.

What is The Heartbleed Bug?
This flaw was discovered by Neel Mehta of Google Security on Monday [07 Apr 2014].
"The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).
The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.

We advise all our readers concerned to apply the fix released.

Hackers Are After Journalists

BlackHat Conference Official Website

Two Google researchers, Shane Huntley and Morgan Marquis-Boire, reported that 21 of the top 25 news organisations in the world have been victims of hackers. These hackers either work for, or support, a government. The two researchers have been talking about this on Friday at the Black Hat hackers conference in Singapore.

Huntley told Reuters:
"If you're a journalist or a journalistic organization we will see state-sponsored targeting and we see it happening regardless of region, we see it from all over the world both from where the targets are and where the targets are from,"

Marquis-Boire said that these attacks normally come through emails and according to him, this is only the "the tip of the iceberg" because state sponsored hackers can find several other ways to attack journalists.
