Online Tips -Top cybersecurity tips for keeping kids safe online If you’re among the millions of people working from home while also trying to entertain and educate your kids during the coronavirus pandemic, we imagine things have been pretty chaotic. Were it not for the option of sitting your kids in front of a laptop for a few hours to do their schoolwork or play games, things might be even worse. But while the technology gives you a break, do you have complete peace of mind about your children’s safety online?

Why your IT team needs cyber security training

Organisations often fall into the trap of lumping cyber security together with their other IT functions. Although they are obviously connected – anti-malware, firewalls and a host of other technologies are a core part of cyber security – there is a lot more to it. Indeed, organisations are equally at risk of phishing scams, credential-stuffing attacks or other incidents in which human error plays a major role. Your IT team can’t address these vulnerabilities if its members only have a technical background. What they need is a wider understanding of cyber security. What does cyber security training teach you? A cyber security training course will increase your IT team’s awareness of your organisation’s wider defence mechanisms. They’ll learn how technological defe...

5 ways to detect a phishing email – with examples

Phishing is one of the most common methods of cyber crime, but despite how much we think we know about scam emails, people still frequently fall victim. Action Fraud receives more than 400,000 reports of phishing emails each year, and according to Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report, more than two thirds of data breaches involved social engineering attacks such as phishing. In this blog, we use real phishing email examples to demonstrate five clues to help you spot scams. 1. The message is sent from a public email domain No legitimate organisation will send emails from an address that ends ‘@gmail.com’. Not even Google. Most organisations, except some small operations, will have their own email domain and company accounts. For example, legitimate ema...

Privnotes.com Is Phishing Bitcoin from Users of Private Messaging Service Privnote.com

For the past year, a site called Privnotes.com has been impersonating Privnote.com, a legitimate, free service that offers private, encrypted messages which self-destruct automatically after they are read. Until recently, I couldn’t quite work out what Privnotes was up to, but today it became crystal clear: Any messages containing bitcoin addresses will be automatically altered to include a different bitcoin address, as long as the Internet addresses of the sender and receiver of the message are not the same. Earlier this year, KrebsOnSecurity heard from the owners of Privnote.com, who complained that someone had set up a fake clone of their site that was fooling quite a few regular users of the service. And it’s not hard to see why: Privnotes.com is confusingly similar in name...

FEMA IT Specialist Charged in ID Theft, Tax Refund Fraud Conspiracy

An information technology specialist at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was arrested this week on suspicion of hacking into the human resource databases of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in 2014, stealing personal data on more than 65,000 UPMC employees, and selling the data on the dark web. On June 16, authorities in Michigan arrested 29-year-old Justin Sean Johnson in connection with a 43-count indictment on charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. Federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh allege that in 2013 and 2014 Johnson hacked into the Oracle PeopleSoft databases for UPMC, a $21 billion nonprofit health enterprise that includes more than 40 hospitals. According to the indictment, Johnson stole employee information on all 65...

E-Verify’s “SSN Lock” is Nothing of the Sort

One of the most-read advice columns on this site is a 2018 piece called “Plant Your Flag, Mark Your Territory,” which tried to impress upon readers the importance of creating accounts at websites like those at the Social Security Administration, the IRS and others before crooks do it for you. A key concept here is that these services only allow one account per Social Security number — which for better or worse is the de facto national identifier in the United States. But KrebsOnSecurity recently discovered that this is not the case with all federal government sites built to help you manage your identity online. A reader who was recently the victim of unemployment insurance fraud said he was told he should create an account at the Department of Homeland Security‘s myE-Verify web...
