  1. Hackers have been attempting to gain access to Spotify accounts using a database of 380 million records with login credentials and personal information collected from various sources. For years, users have complained that their Spotify accounts were hacked after passwords were changed, new playlists would appear in their profiles, or their family accounts had strangers added from other countries. Spotify users stating their accounts were hacked A new report detailing how a database containing over 380 million records, includi
  2. Facebook revealed more details about how hackers exploited three distinct bugs to get the ability to control up to 50 million users’ accounts. On Friday, Facebook revealed that hackers broke into the company’s servers and potentially stole the data of up to 50 million people. The social network forced 90 million people—around 50 million victims plus an additional 40 million that may have been affected, according to the company—to log out and log back in again. That’s because the hackers stole their “access tokens,” a sort of digital key that Faceboo
  3. Note-taking and archiving app Evernote has announced that its discussion forum has been hacked, compromising some users’ passwords, dates of birth and email addresses. The hack was revealed yesterday afternoon in a post by an Evernote forum admin, saying that “The vendor that operates https://discussion.evernote.com has notified us that they had been hacked. The hacker was able to retrieve our forum members’ profile information. We don’t believe that the hacker accessed any private forum messages.” The company was at pains to emphasise that only forum passwords dating from 2011 or earlier were
  4. A father Googled “Nest + camera + hacked” and found out that this happens frequently It was an unremarkable Wednesday afternoon when our nanny texted my wife and me asking if we were speaking through one of the Nest cameras in our house. We both replied that we were not. Then the nanny texted that a voice was coming through the kitchen camera and using bad words. I immediately pulled up the video feed and began reviewing: I hear the familiar chime, which means someone is about to talk through the camera. Then, to my horror, a
  5. In this day and age, online account security is constantly under attack by nefarious parties that are looking to settle scores, makes a few bucks, or simply trying to make a name for themselves. 2K Games found this out the hard way last night after a number of its social media accounts were hacked in a massive security breach for the game publisher. Not only was the company's Facebook account compromised, but its Twitter profile was also taken over by foul-mouthed pranksters. One social media account being compromised is bad enough, but this was a coordinated attack across multiple
  6. A glitch with Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB)’s online ticketing system caused severe disruptions during the first day of advanced ticket sales on Monday, and measures are already being put in place to avoid a repeat situation. According to The Malaysian Reserve, Chief Executive Officer Datuk Kamarulzaman Zainal said that the main cause of the disruption was the sheer volume of users attempting to buy tickets. This was exacerbated by around 400,000 visitors on the site, with 30,000 transactions being completed on Monday. To better handle the load in the future, the CEO s
  7. Breach Of Popular Audio Streaming Site Exposes 20 Million Accounts The popular audio streaming site Mixcloud has reportedly been hacked. Account information belonging to as many of 22 million of its users is for sale on the Dark Web. Zach Whittaker of TechCrunch reports that the breach occurred earlier this month. The individual claiming responsibility for the breach provided Whittaker with a sample of the data — something hackers will often do to prove the validity of the ill-gotten data. In fact, the very same hacker cont
  8. Facebook's Twitter and Instagram accounts hacked, 'OurMine' claims responsibility Facebook’s Twitter and Instagram handles were compromised earlier today, as tweets and posts began showing up that said: “Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security better than Twitter”. A group called OurMine claimed responsibility for the hack, which reportedly was also responsible for the NFL’s Twitter account hack last month. The hackers began posting tweets from Facebook and Messenger accounts, which were constantly being deleted by the company (as seen in
  9. This is the same exchange that reportedly sold Mt Gox’s bitcoin last year on behalf of its trustee. Japanese crypto exchange Bitpoint has become the latest exchange to suffer a major loss of funds. Its loss of $32 million—in five cryptocurrencies—was announced today. The majority of the coins stolen were from customer funds, with just over a quarter belonging to the exchange itself. The funds stolen were in bitcoin, ethereum, XRP, litecoin and bitcoin cash. Bitpoint has not yet said whether customer’s funds will be recouped. Hacked exchanges typ
  10. Croatian government targeted by mysterious hackers Government agencies targeted with never before seen malware payload — named SilentTrinity. A mysterious hacker group has targeted, and most likely infected, Croatian government employees between February and April this year. Attackers, which are suspected to be a state-sponsored unit, have targeted victims using a spear-phishing campaign that mimicked delivery notifications from the Croatian postal or other retail services. Emails contained a link to a remote website with a lookalik
  11. London's Metropolitan Police has apologised after its Twitter, emails and news pages were targeted by hackers and began pumping out a series of bizarre messages. After a series of messages late last night that read simply "test" or seemingly random letters, the police sites began using foul language with anti-police sentiment and calling for a jailed rapper to be released. "Free Digga D," said one such message. The Met Police's Twitter account has 1.22 million followers. Scotland Yard police headquarters said its internal IT
  12. Hackers breach FSB contractor, expose Tor deanonymization project and more SyTech, the hacked company, was working on research projects for the FSB, Russia's intelligence service. Image: 0v1ru$ Hackers have breached SyTech, a contractor for FSB, Russia's national intelligence service, from where they stole information about internal projects the company was working on behalf of the agency -- including one for deanonymizing Tor traffic. The breach took place last weekend, on July 13, when a group of hackers going by the name of 0v1r
  13. Few people had ever heard of Perceptics, a Tennessee-based subcontractor that sells license plate readers to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, before last month, when news emerged that the company had been hacked and that sensitive data — including images of license plates and drivers — had been released on the dark web. The hack is just the sort of privacy breach that civil liberties advocates have long warned could come from massive government data collection, especially when it is contracted out to private firms. And it comes at a time when the CBP is under
  14. Are you using Komodo's Agama Wallet to store your KMD and BTC cryptocurrencies? Were your funds also unauthorisedly transferred overnight to a new address? If yes, don't worry, it's probably safe, and if you are lucky, you will get your funds back. Here's what exactly happened… Komodo, a cryptocurrency project and developer of Agama wallet, adopted a surprisingly unique way to protect its customers' funds. The company hacked its customers and unauthorisedly transferred nearly 8 million KMD and 96 Bitcoins from their cryptocurrency
  15. Alt-currency's value tumbles amid malicious mining mishaps The Verge cryptocurrency has seen its value drop by 25 per cent after hackers exploiting a bug in the alt-coin's software forced its developers to hit the reset button and hard-fork the currency. Programmers on Wednesday confirmed that the fun-bux had been on the receiving end of a "small hash attack" that caused its value to drop from $0.07 to $0.05 per XVG. The developers claimed they had cleared up what was portrayed as a minor hiccup.
  16. from the the-times-we-live-in dept We live in such ridiculous times. The ongoing silly narrative over supposed "political bias" by tech companies is causing all sorts of stupid follow on effects. For instance, Microsoft has now asked the Federal Election Commission for an advisory committee to state that offering its enhanced security features -- known as AccountGuard -- to any political campaign won't be deemed an unfair campaign contribution. At first blush, this seems crazy that they would even need to do so, but it's really a product of the era that we
  17. When we talk about hacking, we usually think of a massive cyber attack on any financial institution. But, from recent hacks and data breach incidents, it seems the hackers have changed their targets. Recently, some crooks tried an not entirely new (and somewhat weird) trick to achieve their goal. These hackers hacked a US gas station to pilfer 600 gallons of fuel worth $1,800 and did so brazenly in the middle of the day. Hackers Hacked A Detroit Gas Station As initially disclosed on Wednesday, individuals hacked a Detroit, Michigan gas station to steal 600 gallons of gas. The Marathon
  18. Hackers are behind bars for stealing $30,000 from accounts, but Vodafone wants their victims to pay the tab. If you use a simple, easy-to-guess password such as "QWERTY" or "1234," you might pay for your mistake by having someone access your online accounts without permission -- and you may also find yourself paying out for subsequent damages and lost funds. That is, if Vodafone reportedly has its way. Recently, a court in Teplice, Czech Republic, sentenced two individuals to jail for compromising the accounts of Vodafone customers in order to ma
  19. Authorities in Russia have broken up a widespread scheme involving dozens of gas-station employees who used software programs on electronic gas pumps to con customers into paying for more fuel than then actually pumped into their tank. The scam shorted customers between 3-to-7 percent per gallon of gas pumped. On Saturday, Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) arrested hacker Denis Zayev in Stavropol, Russia on charges he created several software programs designed to swindler gas customers, according to multiple Russian media reports. The software was found only on gas st
  20. If you are a OnePlus customer and bought their products through their website between mid-November 2017 and January 11, 2018, chances are that your credit card data has been stolen. OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has acknowledged that its website was hacked and breached by hackers who stole credit card data belonging to around 40,000 customers. Background On January 15th, 2017, HackRead published an in-depth report on OnePlus customers complaining about credit card fraud and claiming that their cards had been used to make purchases without their knowledge and
  21. On Dec. 22, 2017, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) charged Jordan Evan Bloom of Thornhill, Ontario for trafficking in identity information, unauthorized use of a computer, mischief to data, and possession of property obtained by crime. Bloom is expected to make his first court appearance today. According to a statement from the RCMP, “Project Adoration” began in 2016 when the RCMP learned that LeakedSource.com was being hosted by servers located in Quebec. “This investigation is related to claims about a website operator alleged to have made hundreds of thousand
  22. A user at Resetera.com has announced that the hack version of PlayStation 4 (PS4 4.05) is now available and hence, the opportunity for targeting the highly sought-after Sony device is ripe. As per DanteLinkX, the user who posted about the hack, it is possible to load or dump PS4 files into ‘.pkg’ format and then load them on firmware version 4.05. Moreover, there are multiple dumps that are compatible with version 4.05 PS4 games and these are being distributed on the internet wildly. “Supposedly a hack for firmware 5.01 is on the way too,” said DanteLinkX.
  23.

  24. When it comes to Samsung’s fingerprint scanner technology embedded in the home button on the new Galaxy S5, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that we have spent plenty of time testing it, and we’ve found that it works very well. The bad news, however, is that it has apparently already been hacked, leaving Galaxy S5 owners’ devices and their PayPal accounts at risk. As noted by German-language security blog H Security, SRLabs has posted video evidence that the fingerprint scanner on Samsung’s Galaxy S5 can easily be spoofed using a lifted print. In mere minutes, the group was abl
  25. Special report Voicemail inboxes on two UK mobile networks are wide open to being hacked. An investigation by The Register has found that even after Lord Leveson's press ethics inquiry, which delved into the practice of phone hacking, some telcos are not implementing even the most basic level of security. Your humble correspondent has just listened to the private voicemail of a fellow Regjournalist's phone, accessed the voicemail inbox of a new SIM bought for testing purposes, and the inbox of someone with a SIM issued to police doing anti-terrorist work. I didn’t need to use nor guess the l
