From the cyber wire studios at data tribe I'm Elliot peltzman in for Dave Bittner with your cyber wires summary for Monday June, twenty-ninth. Twenty, twenty. The University of California has decided to pay a gang that infected quote, a limited number of servers at its University of California San Francisco Unit with Networker ransomware computer business review reports. The university said the encrypted data were quote important to some of the academic work. We pursue as a university serving the public good. We therefore made the difficult decision to pay for a tool to unlock the encrypted data and the return of the data they obtained. and quote. The public good claim appeared to suggest that covid nineteen research was impeded, but Bloomberg, which put the amount of ransom paid at one point four million says the university maintains its work on the virus was unimpeded. The BBC has an account of the negotiations between UCSF and the gang, in which the extortionists explicitly threatened to release stolen student information. There wasn't extended negotiation between the criminals and the university. The initial demand was for three million, but UCSF succeeded in getting the amount knocked down to a million and a half with the extortionists eventually settling for slightly less than that. Payment and even post negotiation for the net walker operators was of course made him bitcoin. The university is working with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies on the case. In India business systems were affected by an unspecified cyber attack against the Jammu and Kashmir Power Development Department, but the Kashmir. Observer says the utility is well on its way to recovery. The most prominent of the affected systems had been the utilities bill paying APP, which was unavailable to customers along with certain other online services. Power. Generation and distribution were apparently unaffected in this incident. In an update on last week, cyber attacks against Ethiopian targets prompted by an ongoing dispute between Cairo and Bob over Theo Bia's construction of a dam on the Blue Nile. Courts reports that there is still no sign of any connection between the hacktivists and the Egyptian government. The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam Gard has been under construction since two thousand eleven. Most of the attackers claimed to be adherence of the cyber. Horace Group. Their activities have for the most part involved website defacements. One of those affected the homepage of a regional police. Training Centre. It threatened war for the Nile uttered a pharonic curse upon Ethiopians. The hacker left messages on the homepage of an Ethiopian Regional Police Force Training Center threatening war over the Nile and a pharaonic curse upon Ethiopians. Most of the hacked websites included the pharonic implication. Quote if the rivers level drops, let all the pharaohs soldiers hurry in return, only after the liberation of the Nile, restricting its flow and quote. The PHARAONIC ICONOGRAPHY is there in images. The cyber hoariest group used to markets victims pages. A skull, wearing fair head-dress to skeletal hands, clutching a knife, and a sickle crossed bones beneath at all. Imagine a middle. Kingdom version of the talking skull on the pirates. The Caribbean ride at Disneyland. The one that chatters dead men tell no tales to distract you just before your boat drops down a flu and you'll get the effect. In any case, the UN is seeking to broker negotiations among the three involved countries Egypt if yo- PIA and Sudan. The hacktivism seems and courses viewed to be having little effect if any.

That accelerates business. It's about time go to McAfee dot com slash time from the cyber wire studios at data tribe. I'm Elliot peltzman filling in for Dave bittner with your cyber wire summary for Thursday march fifth twenty twenty. Today's news include several disclosures of data breaches and ransomware attacks. First clothing retailer. J. Crew has warned affected customers that sustained a data breach in April of Twenty nineteen. The store has disabled an unknown number of accounts that were exposed in the attack. It's asked the affected customers to contact customer care to restore those accounts. Bleeping computer's says the incident was a credential stuffing attack in credential stuffing attacks. The bad actors use big collections of username and password combinations which they try against targeted accounts. Sometimes they get hits. The tactic works because people tend to use the same user names and passwords across multiple accounts. If one account is compromised the credentials can be tried elsewhere. There's a thriving underworld market for stolen credentials and credentials stuffing is a big reason. Why that particular crime pays. In addition to writing affected customers. J. Crew has also notified California's Attorney General Tech Crunch Wonders. Why it took. J. Crew almost a year to disclose the breach. A spokesman told the news outlet that routine web scanning detected improper access and customers were quote promptly notified and quote. There's some vagueness there. It's not clear for example when the scanning took place or win the anomalies were detected. Credential stuffing has also bothered consumers in the UK. The Big British supermarket chain. Tesco has responded to a credential stuffing campaign against shoppers. Who use its loyalty cards by reissuing? Some six hundred thousand new cards to its customers. Tesco told the BBC that its own systems had not been breached but that customer loyalty accounts had been back in the US Connecticut headquartered industrial conglomerate M core has disclosed that. It sustained a ransomware attack. This specific strain involved is real. Amcor says it's investigating but that operations continue and there appears to have been no data-breach and mobile carrier t mobile has warned customers that an attack on its email provider resulted in the compromise of a relatively small number of employees email accounts this is of concern to customers because some of the employees emails that could have been accessed by the attackers contained customer information. That information might have included. T mobile said quote customer names and addresses phone numbers account numbers rate plans and features and billing information end quote credit card and social security numbers. Were not the company added at risk. They've closed the breach and are working with federal law enforcement to investigate historically SEASO's have turned to the government and said defend us from other countries that want to wage war on a country. But how do you defend against a country that wants to wage war against a business joining us as bill? Har- see so at secure off. Who spoke with Dave about the New Challenges? Seaso's face helping businesses stay ahead of these threats. The world of bringing systems people companies online into a digital environment that has no gates. No controls has a pathway from anywhere to anywhere in milliseconds. And if if you think sort of historically or even currently an ICBM takes thirty to thirty five minutes to make it from Russia to the US Right now you onto dos attack in milliseconds and now it's encrypted technology so with everything going to SSL you have nice private communications between some point somewhere and the targets are after today with the attack that we see Equifax Marriott opium anthem. None of that data showed up on the dark web for sale. And that's because you know somebody nation state and I think it was yesterday. The they charge the the P. L. A. With The equifax hack. They're looking for massive amounts of data. They need as much data as they can because then they can start. They can quite comfortably sitting in a secure facility somewhere in China or Russia wherever it is start running analysis on who would be a good attack or good target who would be a good victim. Who could they turn? And it doesn't have to be that typical one where you're looking for the one person that has access to everything you can. Now look for somebody who has access to someone who has access to someone who has access and you know in sorta going down the line. So it's it's a it's a really really messy place. The there were sitting right now. You know I've heard folks say that. Imagine it had the Sony breach in a physical breach. Had you know a a nation state Broken in rifled through the file cabinets and taking things back to their country We'd be talking about a different situation in terms of how we would describe that or label that You know could be considered not just espionage. Perhaps an act of war. How do we contend with that? How do we contend with that difference? That in the end it seems to me like the results are the same. The the the bad guys have your information. They have your data. What's the responsibility of our nation to help? Protect us against these things That is that is a really good question. Because it extends I think farther than just stealing information you know a DOS attack takes people take systems out causes economic disruption well the USO had isolation right friends to the north friends to the south and historically if you look at something like Britain Britain had the Rif they had the anti aircraft guns. They had Boats in the Water. Patrolling the shores. And that's how they defended so you know. Planes came over tried to carpet bomb the citizens of the factories or destroy the the economy. They had a defence against it. And right now we don't And the problem with that is to bring in. Defense creates a lack of privacy For lack of a better way to put it but to try and put up those barriers to try and put geopolitical barriers on Internet. Is it does work. We know it doesn't work. There is a responsibility. I believe by the government to provide some sort of protection. What that is. I'm not sure yet. What about coming at this from the other direction? I I think These days particularly with ransomware attack sometimes You'll see organizations who've fallen victims of these things will they'll stand in front of the microphone in the cameras and they'll throw their arms up and they'll say well there's nothing we could do. This was a nation state attack. And it's sort of if nothing else. It's a rhetorical. Get Out of jail. Free Card Yeah It's a tough one. It is very much a telephone because a nation state attack is not predicated on making money. Right ransomware Or typical ransomware. Where they're looking to get bitcoin out of it and make some money out of it. That's an economic ground. And if you stop paying ransomware ransomware goes away because it's no longer profitable so it is a bit of a get out of jail free card because if the if someone points back and says hey nation state attack will what can I do. I think eventually that's going to wear thin. I think we're going to have to start looking at ways to protect people and that's ultimately I think what it is because they need the people. They need those user identities they need to pass credentials. They need people to do things. So we're moving to a place where I've for a long time. Said there's no longer a work life balance their simply balanced life because a mobile phones because of telecommuting companies are going to have to start finding ways to extend the security that they have at the office to the person not to the building not to the physical location but to the person always at all times because even that person that works in. The factory.

"And joining me. Once again has Kayla Barlow he is the CEO at Synergistic Caleb. It's always great to talk to you. I wonder if touch today on ransomware. Specifically targeting targeting hospitals and what that can do to the business side of a hospital that may get hit with this sort of thing. Well Hey Dave it's always fun to talk about some of these interesting ways to think about common cyber security problems and you if we look at ransomware and let's face it we kinda read about this. It seems like every week or two and it's typically targeting either healthcare institutions or kind of state and local government. So I thought it would be kind of interesting to look look at what happens in a hospital when they're shutdown with ransomware. And what does that impact really kind of look like and the reality is it's pretty harsh harsh. What goes down? Well take me through. I mean a hospital gets headed starts working its way through the systems. First of all is there. Is there a a pattern of of where it usually begins. Is there a common ground zero. Well unfortunately the Common Ground Zero is often healthcare so if we look at Six hundred twenty one ransomware attacks that occurred in the first part of last year so Q.. One through three of twenty nine thousand nine hundred Seventy nine percent of them or four hundred ninety one attacks targeted healthcare. So the first thing that happens and we've seen this in several recent cases is if they hit the E. HR The electronic healthcare record system that hospital for all intents and purposes pretty much doubt. Now here's the next thing that happens happens. which is that you kind of closed down the ER to anything? That is not urgent and you cancel anything that's scheduled scheduled so now you're just doing the stuff where you know. There's a life threatening situation emergency. Well Nice start using lots of paper because is the HR doesn't work. My Typical Hospital will create fifty thousand patient notes at day. All of that now has to be done on paper over. And here's the other thing to keep in mind. They don't get paid on paper anymore so anybody's paying. Whether it's the insurance company Medicare Medicaid paid. They have to submit those claims electronically. So this Literally Shave Mountain of papers growing and you're dependent on on the older nurses and doctors still remember how to chart on paper right. I was going to ask you about that I see. Where are we heading reheating a time where? It's been long enough since that was standard operating procedure that that that legacy knowledge is fading into the distance. Well one of our guys was asking a couple of clinicians about this. The comment was thank God for older nurses right because they see them. How To? You know if you think about when you used to write out a medical record on paper you a document in proce. I saw a patient of this age with this medical condition. And you kind of write everything and you know all the questions to ask. You don't have to remember the questions to ask an electronic system because the systems asking you but of course the real worry we all have. Is that one hospital. Spital isn't independent anymore. You know I don't know about where you live Dave but where I am throw connected together. They're all owned by the same entity. We're this gets really scary. And we we saw little bit of innocent of this in Alabama. We also saw this happened last year. With a hundred on nursing homes that were using the same system and that system which was a cloud provider got locked up and they all went down right So the opportunity here for a somewhat catastrophic regional impact hacked is very real so okay. We're writing stuff on paper. Were diverting patients were doing things manually. But we're also starting to impact the business because if we're now a month and a half into this we've done no claims processing for a month and a half. Is that a realistic time. Nine for this sort of thing would a hospital typically find itself down for that long. Well here's where this also gets interesting. Dave they all seem to pay now there are a few that have it so the Wisconsin based VPN virtual care provider those hundred nursing homes. I was talking about. They didn't pay. Hey and actually you know there's news reports out of just over the last week or two that now they're being extorted by the bad guy. So we're we're kind of waiting to see what happens. Is there right and the other challenge here. Is that even when you do get things back online. So let's say two months go by you start restorick story from scratch you start bringing systems back online. You're not going to be able to capture everything that you did because you wrote it on paper you know a couple things happened happen. One doctors probably write down everything who can read their handwriting. Who can read their handwriting? Real concern and the second can figure is. You're going to start to run out of time to build this stuff right. Yeah so so you really start to run into a longer term scenario. That becomes really problematic so I think the recommendation here is that continuing to just go out get insurance and hope you can pay the ransom awesome. That's probably not a good plan. All these hospitals now are planning on and exercising. What are they gonNA do is the corona virus spreads right? Well what are you GonNa do if you get hit with a ransomware where incident because it's going to be just as devastating to the community and could also result in a similar impact for patients. Yeah all right well. It's certainly l. e. sobering information Thanks for sharing those insights.

"And I'm pleased to be joined once again by Robert Emily he is the CEO at Dragos Rob it is a new year here and I thought it'd be a good opportunity for you. And can I just take a look back at two thousand nineteen Some of the things that caught your attention that we're on your radar How was twenty nineteen from your point of view? Yeah I always loved these like look at Twenty nineteen review or whatever else and they're always like cyber attacks are bad and people are good so I yeah so I like to have a little bit more metrics with them and we've been hard at work on the the Drago's year in review as relates to industrial control. These are things we just about the community that talks about. And what were they actual vulnerabilities and everything else right. And so as we're starting to compile these and actually have an answer here in the New Year I think one of the things that stands out me with regards to the industrial controls isn't that I'll talk about the the enterprise. It community but does controls isn't community. Is I think think we've reached a critical turning points or inflection point I should say In the industrial controls is a community where there's an executive level awareness that this is going to require a actual strategy for industrial security. That's different than the enterprise and why I say that is twenty eighteen. I did a lot of board presentations of these companies. That was very endearing and it was exciting to see them having these conversations but I probably did. I don't know fifteen to twenty of them in this year this past a year I have started to see all of the board members that talked to board members who did spread network and sems the does have the same talking points. I'm seeing an executive level buying. We've always had kind of his practitioner level awareness. But executable buying that this is something that needs to be done in can be done I would like to think that twenty nineteen is GonNa be that inflection point of the buying. Not necessarily. We've got everything figured out. But but actually in the industrial controls the the community at large especially and electric oil and gas and in some sub sectors of manufacturing and actually starting to get in rail now a little bit as well. But we're starting to really really see a better community wide understanding and so I think we'll move past. You Know Kinda my twenty twenty predictions if you will which I hate predictions but but move past. Ask the. Let's do the standard and framework checklist and moving towards. Let's think about this critically now. is every company going to get a right of course not but but I think as a community were starting to see that awareness. Now I mean personally for you at Drago's Twenty nineteen was certainly a year of a lot of growth for you which I mean can we look at that as being saying that There's a lot of demand out there for the types of the types of work that you all are doing from from Dragos and other companies in the space. Yeah and so this is where and one of my day. I'm a hyper competitive person. And if you're in my staff meetings you would hear me like cool. What are we doing against them? And how do we do this. I'm truly competitive but I step back for a second under so damn proud of the fact that there's multiple ICS security vendors. There's multiple on vendors going through massive growth like it's just just a good things at to your point that the demand is there. The market is moving which means the community is growing which means work is getting done. And even though there's different views work needs to get done. Those will relate to lessons learned to figure out whose views are better accurate for different environments. And and. I think we're going to get a much better place for it. And the ad for us. We still do like three hundred percent growth every year. I mean I I have over one hundred seventy employees now in this time last year I think goes at like sixty or something It's just every year. Is this massive growth. I'm excited I. I don't know I've always been kind of an optimist. There's plenty of things that scare me or make me upset and you know. I think some people have listened to me before go. You have off this optimism but look at all these bad things. I don't know the reason I say this though is I've always been the intimately aware of the bad things but I'm seeing the good things and that's something to get excited about. It's not my under appreciation for how terrible some of these things things are including threats. That could literally people but it's my appreciation that our community is just amazing and it's growing and it's good for everybody.

"Continued. And just as crabbers were experiencing that terrible first year reporters uncovered something new about climate change. I knew tack in the battle over climate change going after energy companies for alleged financial fraud. Exxon's history has been the subject of recent reporting by inside climate news. The Los Angeles Times and others. The reporting has alleged the company misled the public about what its own scientists found about the risks of climate change and greenhouse gases. He treasure trove of documents revealed the oil companies had known the impact their product would have for decades and had said about discrediting the science and spreading confusion about it. Rule fossil fuel companies plead in stopping action on climate. Change was surprising to crabbers, here's Noah Oppenheim. Again. The deep regulatory capture of federal agencies and represent. Bodies has been the most surprising aspect of this whole discovery phase of the inner workings of the fossil fuel companies the extent to which they have bought and paid for policy, basically coopting democratic institutions in order to get their agenda further. I mean, that's been American politics for generations. But it feels different in. This instance, it feels like it's been effective beyond anyone's wildest dreams. When Cropper's and lawyers I talked about whether or not they might have a case against oil companies. A lot of the fishermen had a similar reaction as been plot. I knew if it sounded like, you know, pretty far fetched. You know, my initial reaction was just like a lot of other fishermen. It's like well I haven't diesel engine in my boat. So why would I wanna sue a fossil fuel company, and I was still fairly skeptical about whether or not I wanted to be involved in it. I was aware that there would be backlash from other fishermen over something like this. We're all going to have whatever opinion we have about whatever particular fishery is you were talking about right now or having a meeting about or strike or whatever, but we're very divided just like the rest of the country on on, national and international politics. So you know, I have to live with all these guys. These guys were my buddies or my friends people I grew up with you know, we share. Communities together, and these coastal communities are tight-knit to not just fishing communities, and if you've been fishing long enough, it's like one big family. A lot of us know each other new parents and brothers and aunts and uncles and sisters, and I have that kind of connection with people from more obey to southeast Alaska. So I'm reluctant to be part of something that might anger a lot of other fellow fishermen. But you know, in the end, you know, you have to stand on principle that you believe in. I mean, I I that's what I was taught in. So if I separate all that from the facts of the lawsuit and went through trying to cheat a believe, it's the right thing to do and the rest of the fleet. Agreed. But the trade federation decided to take on the case just as the Wayland tangle men case began to move forward crabbers decided to take matters into their own hands and sued what they'd come to believe was the real culprit fossil fuel companies knew about the war. Roaming other climate. They knew the effect. It would have on the ocean. And they had all this information along time ago, and they didn't share it with public because it would have affected their bottom line. Next time on drilled a recap of what oil companies did know about climate change and win and what sort of case the crabbers have start doing something. We have a long road ahead of us. And if we don't start we're never going to get there the same time that there's this public promulgation of doubt, you have internally the company's making enormous investments in their own infrastructure in planning for the future. Everybody uses fossil fuel petroleum products in the United States. You can't buy food without it. You can't travel in this country without it, you can't wear clothing without it. So while the products that we as consumers use every day may be produced by this industry that does not negate in any way whatsoever.

"You might remember that opening montage from the discovery channel's deadliest catch. Let me tell you. King crab got nothing on Dungeness. But lately this nominees market fluctuations and the daily grind are the least of their problems. In fact, Ben and Lori hundreds of other California fishing families like them could be facing their biggest challenge yet. And it started about four years ago. Our unseasonably warm weather is also feeding the biggest LG bloom on the west coast in decades. This Eli is having seizures poisoned from Damola Gasset a deadly natural talks and being found in very high levels from California to Washington state. It's not unusual to have warm patches of ocean water. But this one's much larger and hotter than normal by up to seven degrees Fahrenheit, the patch of warm water, something scientists are calling very scientifically the blob appeared on the Pacific coast in the spring of. Two thousand fifteen warm currents or normal, of course. But this was a huge mass of unusually warm water, and it encouraged an abnormal amount of algae to grow. And then to stick around algal blooms would typically start to dissipate in the summer. But these stuck around till fall when the crab season would usually start in California fishing season for the Dungeness crab has been delayed who high levels of dangerous neuro toxin, it's an environmental problem. Scientists blame warmer waters ended economic one Dungeness crab is a sixty million dollars a year industry. The season was delayed that year because the algae had led to build up of what's called demo-. Ick acid a potent neuro toxin in crabs. It was particularly bad timing for Ben we just bought the house that year so taken on the biggest debt of our life. I'd had a good crab season. The winter that we bought the home. But then I elected to take the whole summer off and spend all this money, and then we had the demo Kasat closure. So I'd had my crew. True, come to Windsor savvy gear yard there. So we spent about a month doing gear work, and then we had the shutdown and Laurie was worried about both her own family, and the broader community we could pretty hard hit, and that's money that will never make up again guys with families. The deckhand had no backup to mock acid was first found in muscles off Canada's Prince Edward Island in the late nineteen eighty s when it made a group of people violently ill. Some were vomiting excessively some experienced amnesia along with intestinal issues and four became so ill.
