Report Details Problems With and Solutions for Supply Chain Attacks
"It departments need to assess the cybersecurity maturity of the software and hardware products. They buy. That's the recommendation of the european union agency for cybersecurity which looked at the increasing number of cyber attacks that are going through the supply chain. These include attacks on applications like microsoft exchange solar winds o. Rien and most recently kosei say through one supplier and attacker can spread malware too many unfortunately. It departments have to rely on the trustworthiness vendors which means not only end user organizations. Have to be tougher on suppliers. Creators of hardware and software products have to be tough on their cyber security and application development processes so the report says buyers should document their suppliers define risk levels for each and monitor them for risks and threats software and hardware developers should ensure their infrastructure and processes can't be manipulated. There's a full linked to the report which looks at twenty four supply chain attacks in the text version of this podcast at it world. Canada dot com. Here's one of the latest examples of a possible and unusual vector for a supply chain attack. A hospitals pneumatic tube system. A warning has gone out to hospitals using the swiss log. Trans logic t. s. pneumatic tube system for distributing lab specimens and medications the software running. The system has critical vulnerabilities. They were discovered by a security firm called armies. It says the problems could allow an attacker to take over the systems control panel disrupt the system and hold the hospital to ransom. Another possibility is data theft of sensitive patient health. Information swiss log says vulnerabilities could only be leveraged if an attacker i gets into the hospitals. It system
More Corporate Ransomware Victims
"A canadian company that runs several medical clinics across the country may have been victimized by data theft the marchetto criminal marketplace one of the places where crooks sell stolen data is listing the company on its website. The company hasn't responded to my requests for comment. The website has posted copies of what it says is part of what was stolen as proof of the hack. A security researcher sent me one of the documents which looks like contact information between the healthcare chain and and alberta university as if the windows print spoiler vulnerability wasn't enough of a problem. Now there's news. Possibly millions of printers may by hp xerox and samsung have a printer driver vulnerability. That's been around for over fifteen years. Researchers at sentinel labs are urging it administrators and individuals with printers from these companies to make sure they have the latest printer drivers hp issued fixes in may. The report says three hundred and eighty hp and samsung printer models as well as at least a dozen xerox models are affected. The good news is researchers have seen no evidence yet that hackers know about and have exploited this problem to compromise computers
Ransomware Gang Reportedly Drops Encryption
"The babic ransomware gang says it's dropping the encryption of data of victims as a tactic instead will focus strictly on data theft and blackmail to enrich itself until now the gang did both stealing data from victim organizations and then encrypting the data on the corporate servers. The threat to the victim was pay for the decryption keys. Or the copy data will be released embarrassing. You and your customers. If the company didn't have a good data backup it faced to threats embarrassment and loss of business and the loss of data this double extortion. Tactic started being adopted by ransomware groups about two years ago but creating and maintaining encryption isn't easy some cyber security companies have cracked the encryption of a few gangs and are giving away the decryption keys to any victims m saw off is one of the companies that crack the babba code now. Barbeque has apparently decided that is easier and perhaps just as lucrative to only steal data and hold it for ransom a researcher adam soft doubts that other ransomware groups will follow this strategy by the way last week the babak gang gone into the computer systems of the washington dc police department and stole data. It is still threatening to release the names of police informants unless it is paid in an interview with the new site in poland babba claim. The police departments virtual private network was hacked. With a zero day vulnerability that is vulnerability that hasn't been disclosed. That claim hasn't been confirmed.
Stolen password leads to loan company hack
"Citywide home loans. Which lends money in. The united states is now notifying people that it was. The victim of ransomware and data theft attack in november information on a number of employees and customers was copied according to letters filed with several states and attacker got hold of employees log in credentials for the company's virtual private network. It isn't explained how that happened. One possibility is vpn. Software was hacked in the past twelve months. The software of corporate vp ends of at least two manufacturers have been cracked to expose user names and passwords. These are being sold on criminal websites. There have been many warnings so. It administrators recently to install the latest vpn security updates and have users changed passwords in order to fight this other possibilities. Are the loan company. Employees password was guessed or they were tricked into revealing it no matter the method experts say the proper use of multi factor. Authentication is a good way to add extra protection to log ins now. The next to items take a bit of explaining so please be patient organisations. Worry that personal data of customers and employees can be violated in two ways through a hacked by outsiders or abuse by an insider but who is an insider an employee for sure but it also includes employees of partner contractor or supplier firms with data access and as an article this week on the new site data breaches dot net points out. It can also include the subcontractors of contractors the author gave the following example. An american health insurance provider fought risk management software and services from firm. Alcohol company to this firm subcontracted some work to affirm call company three one of company threes employees with access to the insurers data had aside business training people how to do data coating. This person was using the insurance company's data for training material with those people without permission so unapproved people. We're seeing patient data. That's the data breach so far just under one thousand people have been notified. Their personal and medical data may have been involved. This incident raises a number of questions. Why didn't the insurance provider anonymous is. The data sent to company too so the risk of compromise was if that wasn't possible. Why didn't company to anonymous the data. That was by company three. What other security measures could have been used to prevent company three employees from seeing real data and did the health insurer realize all the risk it was taking opening. Its data to several companies as the author notes organizations can force employees of contractors and subcontractors to sign business associated agreements the cover the proper data handling and privacy however compliance with those agreements has to be regularly policed. Finally crooks have been manipulating the results of search engines like google for years to spread malware. The idea is to get a high result of a search to be an infected website. A security company sophos said this week it recently found a gang using one of those techniques. Not only for spreading viruses but also ransomware. It works like this. You ask the search engine to find the answer to a specific question that the crooks think people are likely to want answered high up on the list of returns our links to what looks like legitimate companies. Click on a link and you go to a forum with a message that offers a file downloading with the answer to the question. Download that file and you get like similar. Search engine scams crook start by secretly placing code on the websites of unsuspecting companies. So their site will call them up high enough. Search that fools people because they'll trust legitimate-looking web address in one example. The report says the question was do. I need a party wall agreement to sell my house. The first on the list of search engine responses was the website of canadian medical practice underneath. That address was linked to do. I need a party wall agreement to sell my house.

He added that microsoft believed at least a thousand engineers were involved in mounting the attack. How microsoft arrived at that figure is unclear.

"The law Marginal legal advice. Sean. Hello, Sean. Welcome. Thank you for taking my call. Bill. Um, my husband was falsely accused of rape and we had gone down to the police station and all the DNI testing in such and everything came back negative, and now they're finally a temporary restraining order, and I didn't know if we have any recourse on any of this. Who's filing the temporary restraining order. The person who had accused him of rape in the first place. OK s o the accusation of rape, and he did not commit the rape that's falling a fight of false police claim. S o. I would. I would go with the police on that one saying there was no rape here is well, theoretically, the proof Just because there is a negative doesn't mean that a rape did not occur. Just means it probably didn't occur because in order to have rape I mean, you know, and I don't even know Is it possible to raise some somebody without leaving any didna? On. I don't know the answer to that Unless there was DNA's left by some other person and let's not get into particulars here. But if there was plenty of DNI from someone else, and it was not, it was not your husband's. Then there's the issue of the Then there was the issue of whether the rape took place or not by him, then as far as the restraining order. What do you care? You're not gonna be near that person anyway? Seriously? What is he came exactly? Yeah, I just You know, you won't believe that I would leave that alone and I would go after both the criminal and the civil There's two issues here. If the cops don't want to do anything, if the D A doesn't want to do anything, fine, But I think there's a civil lawsuit there, too. So that's where I would go and just ignore the restraining order. I mean what you're gonna do. Well, I wanna be near you G Don't stop me from doing that. I mean, that's completely crazy. Mel. Hi, Mel. Europe Welcome. Oh, hi, Bill. I thought I'm in the middle of refinancing the house. And I just found out that my ex husband's lawyer put a lien on my house. On them. And when I'm reading my divorce agree, it says there that each responsible party is responsible for the attorneys cost. When they called his attorney. I found out that his story is not working there anymore. But they still the one who removed the lean because they said that it was put on before the divorce. When I called my divorce lawyer You want another $1000 for him to write a letter to my, um, my husband's lawyer. $1000 for a letter. Yeah, that's pretty pricey. Um, l let me ask Was the house and both of your names at the time. Itwas. Okay. So the lawyer can put a lien on the house for unpaid bills by your husband, so the lean can be legitimate. How much is the lawyer asking for the first lawyer? His lawyer. Well, because the divorce was 2011. He didn't say $18,000. So now I found now that the lien is 36,000. But in the divorce, I got the house. My God. The house 100%. Yeah, I don't know if that removes the lean. Yeah, you're gonna have to have Ah, Family law attorney on this, But if any, if your existing lawyer is charging you $1000 to write a letter. I want that business. Mel, You have to find another family law attorney. I hate to say that but you have to have the lean removed, especially since the house is in your name. I'm surprised they were able to do that They didn't stop the transfer of the house. With a lean on it. But just in inter spousal transfer, of course s Oh, yeah. Gotta get me some real issues today. Why didn't anybody just You know my neighbor's trees falling on my property Thieves are all fairly complicated, but I mean, that's You know what happens when you know you go through life and life tends to be pretty complicated except in my life, which is not complicated, all because no one talks to me and it's real easy.

"That's that's how easy it is. It's really interesting is is that you know. Consumer demand and these amazing new products called smartphones. That have emerged in the last fifteen years have put in everybody's hands a very very capable and strong security device that that they can use and yet. What's really interesting is the many organizations still yet are not leveraging that to improve their own access security and i think we're seeing that in the evidence of that in the news stories now about the russian hacks on on. Us government agencies high security agencies. Many of which have relied on the theft and reuse of credentials to move laterally and not only within the government networks but also to federated networks cloud-based the applications. And so on. Like the way i look at amity factor authentication or a second level of penetration to fa mfa whichever you want to call it. Validate that person is who they came to be when they put in a password or you certain credentials is such a simple thing to do in terms of you know present that challenge to the on if day accepted and they validate that they are who they claim to be Lender in and you have a significantly higher level of confidence that is barry mcmahon who is entering the network. We continuously see best data-breach report. You know that more than eighty percent data breaches are lying to poorer password hygiene etc by doctors will get in if they really really really really wanted in. You know they have a lot of resources and we've seen that in the recent press right. They're going to get in. How do you. How do you slow them down. How do you make sure that they starts at alarm bells when they get in there. Right if somebody can get into your network. Isn't it better that you have a way on.

Pretend to be me moving around your network that they could challenge for an mfa Can't meet on then. I get a notification that i didn't request an i report that to. It you know. Yeah and i mean. I think your report the top concerns that you that you're respondents identified. Were you know password. Reuse leaked passwords and weak passwords. Right so. I mean all you know all three of those Very solvable problems. Alternately shoes assaulted the problems as long as the end user has the right tools after disposal. You know you mentioned some of the frustrations with it. Assets on on on the ultimate area of them managing passwords now for five hours a week and reset and crashes five hours a week like it. The the the funny thing about this is that the frustrations while they're different from I t to employee's they're actually based on the exact same thing. Which is the password right you know. It frustrations around oxford reuse hostile weakness. And then it by socioeconomic leaking of company data right and then employees are just just as an item frustration but having to change password regularly which remembering multiple passwords trying to remember long complex passwords.

"It comes to the analytics. What vendors are forced to do today is to is to be very precise in how the approach this problem. you can't just apply m l. As this data science approach other sort of one size fits all approach. You're going you're just gonna get up end up with a lord of noise. So what vendors like us to do is to curate these use cases and know precisely what detection technique or algorithm to lie in order to drive a specific outcome. And so on one end of the funnel you know. You're you're pumping in betty large volumes of data. But after all the processing your the output is in a very manageable size because you also understand we have the people of the staffing problem right. You don't have all all the staff in the world to look at this so you need to be very precise in video officiant in solving this problem indeed. The next russian is once you've once you've spotted some behavior that seem suggestive or worrying. I guess maybe the bigger messier problems. What do you. what do you do with and you build internal processes around managing that information enacting. That's a very interesting question of a important one. Because i think this is where a lot of insider threat programs fail because The assume just technology alone can solve this problem. I can tell you for sure. This is just like anything else A people process and technology problem and as a matter of fact the process and the people aspects are equally if not more important in this regard and the reason why is that when it comes to insider threat behavior. It's a black white situation right. It's always a shades of gray situation. Which what i mean by that. Is that you really need to have your policies and procedures I and out very clearly. With all concerned parties there needs to be consensus by and large not saying and everything between hr legal the working groups lines of business and so on and so forth so that when a particular nefarious behavior surfaced. They know how to deal with that. And i've seen inside. Threat programs fail because that type of a policy and procedure wasn't out in the first place so so they don't know what's right from right and wrong from.

"Staff from companies in sectors like retail travel and hospitality whose businesses have been up ended by the pandemic. Millions of americans have lost their jobs. Since the onset of twenty twenty and if data compiled by our next guest is to be believed. Many of those departing workers are taking company data and intellectual property with them out the door. Sheriff ben is the executive director of field engineering at the company. Secure on expend notes. That evolving technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence are making it easier to spot patterns of behavior that correlate with data theft in this discussion sharon. I talk about secure onyx. Study on data theft and data loss. How common the problem is. and how. Covert and the layoffs stemming from the pandemic are exacerbating the insider data theft problem. My name is sharon. then i'm the executive director of field engineering at secure onyx. The second onyx is a next gen. Sim and euboea company You know we've been doing this for the last ten years. We started as a company even before that we were looking at just identities and profiling identities and behavior and that started while naturally in dude looking at other types of lock sources such as mail proxy endpoints infrastructure in a sense Next sim is has the standard traditional capabilities. Plus the euboea capabilities built into it and also sore capabilities for automation and so on. So that's that's company in a nutshell and you're welcome to security ledger. Podcast thank you and Happy happy to be. We're talking to you Because we're we're digging. Deep on the problem of insider threats and particular the risk that employees pose you know in that period where they may have decided to move on to another job or are leaving or government getting fired for some reason secure onyx came out with a report on insider threat behavior. This was Data that you'd kinda it from across your customer base and analyze particularly around this issue. Can you kind of give us a high level on What that report found some of the kind of high level takeaways from from that report. Yeah so let me start by answering the question. What we've observed is that most often. When an employee leaves the company they end up taking some data with them right. I think it has just human tendency to do. So because the employee feels a sense of entitlement ownership especially if particular artifacts or document is Is something they worked on So this has always been an a problem with respect to whether that particular action is is benign or serious. it really depends on the impact. For example legislate employees ended up taking an excel sheet with mackerels built into it so that they can be more efficient than the next job they go to. Is that a big deal. Yes or no that depends right but let's say you have a a a high profile researcher who ends up taking with them the formula on how to make a leading drug anti the next competitor and uses that for accelerating their time to market now. Is that a big deal. Obviously i think it is so it's not just a matter of what they take. It's a matter of the impact that it actually has and who determines that is. Obviously you know.

"Set up a firebomb to destroy the evidence. SPITING daredevil. Can't stop it from detonating a firestorm starts taking down the building with our heroes inside. Doc these goons look pretty familiar. Yup Back to the Beatles It will be really cool if there were like stickers or shirts of them squatters. Oh I see what you're saying. I thought you meant nation have cool t shirts for team building teething so these are clearly early. Daddy fisk these are clearly daddy fisk goons as opposed to Dickie Fisk pay for play hardboard outfit it goods like yeah they needed the official goons for this specific job. They needed it done right. And that's who they hired. Yeah they're pretty pink firebomb. I don't know why it's got that colored do it but Sherwin Autumn matches their outfits. That's that's the only color scheme they can see so spiderman goes and grabs one of the game. And he's just like this you think that one of the goons with the would even know like just like a lowly goon US knowing yeah. That's that's his name but I mean like we saw with Dickie. He was just throwing the my father around all like Willy Nilly so yes true punt semi intended but do your point. These guys are pros because has inspired. He gets over there he gets the drop on these goons and he and he webs them up right next to this firebomb and if that was me I would lose my shit immediately. There would be still on my behalf. I start this. I just started the detonation sequence on this bomb. I can't move fuck tuck this and I would piss them and just are worming my way out of there. The professional since offset no. They're keeping their cool. It is weird that they like a big willing would bring a fire on like as opposed to like some sort of detonation. You know what I mean. Yeah I guess because you need a lot of charges in order to bring down a building like a properly whereas a big fire is. I don't really know that much about firebombs. If that's even a thing aren't all bombs firebombs. I think it's like supposed to be like napalm. But if all the evidence is digital couldn't they have just you know had a big magnet earn. EMP just to like fry out ignorant slob just interests that the diagnostic being. Let me hit you guys with some knowledge. First of all Oh firebombs firebombs. So I if I'm also looking at the wikipedia trigger so destroying data actually isn't as easy as you think it is. I know you can wipe the drives but there are ways to recover it. There are ways of scrubbing the data. That being said what they also do is they sometimes just fucking drill a hole through the hard drive so it's unreadable. I've seen that yet just vera. Saw Me do that in the backyard. Yeah physically destroying the storage device is a totally totally legitimate. Way of doing it using a firebomb to destroy a fucking building to do that is probably inefficient. Well I think maybe then the thing is if they just blew it up you know the stuff. On the periphery. It might fall down but you could maybe recover it. You know what I mean like you could sift through the scraps and it might not be completely destroyed whereas a fire the the heat of it will destroy everything you can still recover drives from fires like sn. Yeah realistically the reason they're doing. It is so that they can have spiderman and daredevil near the bomb and it won't instantly killed him like it's a plot that's why they're doing and other news skin cares damage one. He's he's getting the students become the master. It's all worth it because we got that perfectly synchronized running away from an explosion from our two heroes so cute well I guess that means. It's time for us to adjourn. Because that is it for this episode. Which means it's time to file some arbitrary spider ratings where we ranked the episode using whatever idiotic metric we can come up with off the top of our heads and we will start with breath? Peter so I will rate this episode. Four out of five hotdogs with lots of mustard gross errors. There's some good action scenes. The animation was actually Pretty Crisp It was good seeing another hero in there. That's just as Agile Spiderman and I really like the way that they did dare-devils calls the way he perceives things. I that his like Red Vision or whatever the heck it was your overall good cliffhanger looking forward to the next one go and bureau. I give this episode nine. Peel away radioactive barrels out of ten. It's jam packed with full of action and a pretty solid. The plot dare-devils intro is really sweet. But I will say that. It's a shame that it's such a big chunk of this episode. There's only he's really only featured in two episodes you mentioning that. This is a pilot. Potential pilot like kickoff makes a lot more sense but it does eat away on the run time that being said who doesn't love a good team up episode and I think the two of them kick a Lotta but nice and Matthew I would give this episode thirteen bags of smoke. Bonds Out of also sixteen which is about seventy five seventy six reset reset. Oh we make the listener. Do the math here as high as Iranian. I think that this episode really sets the next one so far to look at it in isolation leads a lot of questions of in the air but I I I really liked the introduction dared at all I like a few things right about the law especially for children searching and and I think apart from from the finger is certainly a lot of questions in leaves the viewer up into combat for more for the next nice as for me. I'm going to give this episode. Three and three quarter awkwardly tender hand holds out of five daredevil is pretty sick and I really likes likes that they did a Peter Parker centric episode. You need those every so often. I think it was a little extreme with the treason and I mentioned that the animation was up and down at times TMZ but all in all it was really fun adventure and as you guys mentioned. It was a lot of questions things that they set up. I'm pumped to see how they pay them off. So it was quite a cliffhanger. Matt you do you WanNa take a guess as to how things are going to shake out for our hero cannon your say but the Google is all the record that I need personnel. Some big scuba moment on America has been waiting for today's issue with Byu Brock's big school biggest school big news to.
