New Mirai Variant Comes with 27 Exploits, Targets Enterprise Devices
on March 18, 2019 at 6:15 pm
A new Mirai variant comes with eleven new exploits, the enterprise WePresent WiPG-1000 Wireless Presentation system and the LG Supersign TV being the most notable new devices being targeted. A previous report by Palo Alto Networks' Unit 42 from September saw a strain of the Mirai botnet switching targets to attack Apache Struts servers using an exploit also employed during last year's Equifax breach, while a new Gafgyt version was observed while assailing SonicWall firewalls, as part of a larger move against enterprise assets. Mirai attacks against enterprise devices mounting up This time, as previously mentioned, the researchers found that, besides its usual marks represented by routers, network video cameras, modem routers, and wireless controllers, the Mirai version detected during January 2019 is now also scanning for and exploiting LG Supersign TVs and WePresent WiPG-1000 Wireless Presentation systems present in enterprise environments.

Avoid these Google Play Store apps that promise to update your Android phone
on March 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm
Apps in the Google Play Store purport to upgrade your phone to Android 9.0 Pie, but an app cannot perform that task. Open-source LineageOS 16 based on Android 9.0 Pie improves privacy and security Phones supporting LineageOS can enjoy a cleaner, more predictable Android experience with security patches often delivered faster than the default Android version on many phones. Apps in the Google Play Store from unscrupulous developers that purport to upgrade your phone to Android 9.0 Pie or older versions have been spotted by Android Police. Some of the apps, which are predictably named things like "Update to Android P - 9.0" or "Updates for Samsung," are designed to ensnare users searching inside the Google Play Store for updates to their phones, though the Play Store does not handle OS updates. There are aftermarket, third-party Android ROMs, like LineageOS, that provide the latest version of Android for select phones, though these third-party ROMs lack the same visual theming of the stock Android installation provided by the device OEM. Ultimately, Android device manufactures are responsible for providing OS updates for phones and tablets. […]

We are on the edge of a new ‘cyber’ space age. This is how we make it a success
on March 18, 2019 at 5:15 pm
And success will require the same ingredients; public-private collaboration and a focus on security and protection against the risks. One example is the World Economic Forum’s Center for Cyber Security, which brings together experts and thought leaders to further address systemic cyber-risks and create tools to better understand it. Risk transfer is only one part of the tapestry for cyber insurers, and Zurich Insurance has invested in a new, state-of-the-art Cyber Fusion Center to establish collaboration between highly-skilled cyber threat intelligence, response, forensics, and vulnerability management teams. Achieving resilience also means monitoring and improving incident response on a global level, particularly to systemic cyber events. Global cyber governance could also be improved via the use of networks to allow national cyber governance entities to interact; creating trust, increasing coordination and facilitating joint responses. These discussions must find the right balance between a sustainable cyber insurance industry and the natural demand for mitigating these risks for consumers and the economy. […]
Build defenses against cyber-attacks through public-private cooperation
on March 18, 2019 at 4:30 pm
Central government offices, local governments and private firms are exposed to severe attacks in cyberspace. The government will shortly establish a cybersecurity council consisting of government offices, local governments and critical infrastructure operators, including power utilities, railway firms and airport operators. The planned panel will also look at establishing a system in which the government or a business detects cyber-attacks and sends alerts instantly so that information can be shared. The National Center of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity, which serves as a control center, must take the lead in working out countermeasures by providing firms with the knowledge and information obtained through information exchanges with Western countries.Work with allies The internet of things (IoT), which connects a diverse range of devices to the internet, has spread to such an extent that care must be taken to guard against familiar devices being exploited for information theft. From fiscal 2019, the government will revise the contract process for procurement of information and communications equipment to take national security into account. […]
