La popularidad de Fortnite, con una audiencia de más de 200 millones de usuarios activos al mes, también acaparó la atención de actores malintencionados, y no solo de aquellos que buscan estafar a los usuarios para obtener un rédito económico, sino también de acosadores que utilizan la plataforma contactar a jóvenes y extorsionarlos. En el caso de las estafas, como ya hemos hablado anteriormente, incluso en etapas previas a que se desatara la polémica cuando la empresa desarrolladora de Fornite anunció que no estaría disponible en Google Play, con las consecuencias para la seguridad que eso podría tener, las estafas alrededor del juego vienen desde hace ya un tiempo.

“Fortnite” has become so popular it is now a new playground for cyber-criminals, a new study has found. The game, which has an online audience of more than 200 million players and monthly revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars, can also make the dubious claim of a burgeoning criminal ecosystem, according to research from cybersecurity firm Sixgill. Fraudsters use stolen credit cards to purchase Fortnite-related goods and then unload those goods to unsuspecting buyers, receiving clean money in return.

Most people, according to Sixgill VP of Marketing Barry Spielman, know “nothing” about the dark web – an issue that he added is increasingly problematic as a lack of dark web security in cybersecurity frameworks puts data at risk.

Now that the hype has died down after the much anticipated midterm elections, Sixgill, the cybersecurity leader which analyzes the Dark Web to detect and defuse cyber attacks, discovered that the U.S. voter database tracing back to the 2008 Vermont election was being offered for sale on a top-tier forum on the Dark Web. The alert that came from Sixgill also stated that it allegedly contained data from as recently as September of this year.

Some of the most potent forms of ransomware of 2018 are being offered for sale in a cut-price bundle deal on the dark web that also contains one of the most dangerous forms of file-encrypting malware to terrorise organisations this year. SamSam is part of the 23 ransomware bundle — significant because previously it’s only been deployed by a highly specialised group. Other well-known forms of ransomware available in the $750 ‘2018 ransomware pack’ include Magniber, Satan, CryBrazil, XiaoBa, and more. The pack has been uncovered by researchers at cyber security firm Sixgill.

Four clear trends are dominating the cybersecurity reality. The growth in digital devices is driving risk management. Business leaders see new risks tied to emerging technologies. Cyber threats to the integrity of data are a rising concern and current employees remain the top source of security incidents.

For this year’s PwC Cybersecurity Day, which falls within the Luxembourg Cybersecurity Week, the focus will be on why businesses are vulnerable to cyber disruptions and how leaders who participate at the event can help their organisations build resilience to sustain operations and boost economic performance. It is imperative that in the post GDPR world we protect data privacy and revitalise trust.

Focus on next-gen solutions: eight top companies compete

One of the agenda’s highlights will be the pitch competition. Eight top companies – CounterCraft, CybeReady, Detectify, Hacknowledge, Jemmic, NormShield, Sixgill and Venafi – will present how they meet cybersecurity challenges head-on with next-generation solutions.

We’ve come to rely on online services for nearly every aspect of our lives: communicating with friends and family, filing taxes, shopping, ordering food, hailing a ride, and for those with smart homes, even turning on the lights. Those services we rely on, however, also leave a breadcrumb trail of information about ourselves online and expose us to cyber-criminals. More than 16.7 million Americans became victims of fraud in 2017, losing a total of $16.8 billion, according to a report by advisory firm Javelin Strategy & Research. What’s especially frightening is that criminals obtained at least $5 billion of that amount through online identity theft, robbing their victims from the comfort of their desks, without the need to even get close to them. As our lives become more connected, the threat of our personal information ending up on the dark web is becoming more rampant, and anyone can become a victim. In many cases, we can’t even quantify the damage of online identity theft. Here’s what you need to know about online identity theft, the dark web, and how to protect yourself.

Facebook has approved a $10 million annual security allowance for its co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, citing “specific threats” to his safety.

The allowance, worth £7.6 million, has increased by about 25 per cent from last year, and relates to threats “arising directly as a result of his position as Facebook’s founder, chairman and CEO,” the company said in a filing to US regulators.

The award will pay for more bodyguards, improved security at Mr Zuckerberg’s homes and the use of private aircraft. It follows the circulation by an Isis cyberunit of faked images featuring Mr Zuckerberg in an orange jumpsuit and his severed head, with the message “Go to hell, Mark.”

Sixgill, a security firm, told the Daily Star: “We assume that Isis is targeting Facebook to retaliate against its measures to censor pro-Isis content and groups, and because Facebook is seen as a western symbol.”

CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) is a list of publicly known cybersecurity vulnerabilities and exposures. Its purpose is to facilitate the sharing of data and to alert users of required actions to mitigate potential threats in the cyber world. Although the practice of alerting the public with new CVEs is a crucial component in contemporary cyber-security strategy, Sixgill has identified a common practice in the Dark Web underground which indicates that publishing CVEs could turn out to be a double-edged sword. From what we are seeing, cyber threat-actors are continuously searching for new vulnerabilities and they invest considerable effort in finding ways to exploit these vulnerabilities.

For example, Sixgill recently identified such a criminal behavior involving CVE-2018-7600.

The healthcare industry is under attack, according to the cyber intelligence community, and dark web black market activity shows hackers are gung-ho on targeting hospitals, medical devices and healthcare systems in order to get their hands on sensitive and personal information.

This is a global epidemic; no country is protected.

“The more confidential and sensitive, the more valuable,” says Gilad Israeli, a Sixgill cyber intelligence analyst. “Fraudsters are looking for the most sensitive data because it is more valuable, and they can ask for more money. If they offer super hard-to-get medical device ID or a way to hack it, it means they are very good at what they’re doing and it heightens their reputation. And, reputation means money in the longer term.”

The Russia World Cup that has kicked-off for almost a week is seen as a success so far as 32 countries fight their way to be at the top of their respective groups, but terror group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) says they will rain on the globe’s biggest sporting event’s parade soon.

Over the week, ISIS has been threatening to attack and disturb the ongoing World Cup. And in its latest propaganda, they have released a series of posters showing bomb blasts at the stadiums.

A video also captions for its supporters to be “ready and steady for the season of hunting is soon.”

Argentine star Lionel Messi has also become a target, as a mock image shows him clad in an orange jumpsuit, kneeling before a masked terrorist in the middle of the stadium, as the large crowd watches him being executed.

The dark web — the part of the web not indexed by search engines such as Google and used for nefarious purposes — isn’t actually that big. One estimate suggests are only around 7,000 sites on the TOR network, while the FBI has said there are only around 800 criminal internet forums worldwide.

But while there may not be massive amounts of these forums, it is where the vast majority of underhanded online activity takes place. And for any company wishing to stay on top of its security obligations, getting a window into what happens on the dark web could prove invaluable.

Luckily, a new wave of companies such as Webhose, RepKnight, Terbium labs, Massive, Recorded Future, Sixgill, Hold Security, and Alien Vault are adding a new layer to traditional threat intelligence and trying to make the dark web as easily searchable as any normal, Google-able website.

Cybersecurity is big business in Israel, which is home to several of the world’s top companies working in the field. For a fun illustration of Israel’s standing as a cyber superpower, search Google images using “Israeli unicorns’’ (tech industry slang for start-up companies with a $1 billion-plus valuation) and then “Australian unicorns’’.

As far back as 2013, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set a goal for the country to become a world leader in an industry estimated to be worth $US100 billion and growing in importance with the increasingly connected nature of governments, business and society.

Sixgill, named for the primitive shark that feeds in the deep waters of the ocean floor, trawls the “dark web”, used by terrorists, drug dealers and others, to un-cover and monitor threats to banks, insurers and other corporate customers that are the target of frequent attacks.

Like many college students who cram the night before a test – and some writers who test the limits of their editors’ patience with their procrastination – many companies have pushed off GDPR compliance, believing either it doesn’t apply to them, it’s too costly or overwhelming or they can afford to wait and see just how serious regulators are about admonishing and fining companies who falter on privacy.

Big mistake.

Sixgill is among the finalists of the InfoSec Awards for 2018 which will be announced at RSA.

It’s been nearly six months in the making – our annual review of the hottest, most innovative, best, market leaders, next-generation and cutting edge INFOSEC companies offering incredible products and services.

This year we decided to also include and give credit to a small list of public relations firms that do a great job to help get the word out about these innovators and we’ve included a small list of very important people to keep an eye on – because they are making a difference.

We scoured the globe and found nearly 3,000 companies who create and offer the most respected InfoSec products and services.  Some of them you have never even heard of until today.  Some are startups and some are early stage.  Some are bigger known players.  But what they all have in common is a drive for innovation.  They truly want to help you get ahead of the next breach.  They are on a mission to help you comply with regulations, stop the cyber-criminals, hackers, hacktivists, cyber terrorists and threats against critical infrastructure.

It is now no-brainer that you literally get anything from the dark web.

Recently, Sixgill, an Israel-based dark web research company, came across a significant data dump up for sale on a primarily Russian-language dark web forum. What particularly set this dump apart from the rest of the large chunk of data available was that for every record, there was an accompanying selfie of the said user.
