SPAIN: Anonymous Hackers Arrested

Posted: February 29th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Hack!, Technoid Computer News | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on SPAIN: Anonymous Hackers Arrested

SPAIN Anonymous Hackers ArrestedSpain and three South American countries have arrested 25 suspected hackers associated with the Anonymous activist group on accusations of defacing government and corporate websites, officials said. Spanish police also accused one of four suspects picked up in the cities of Madrid and Malaga of releasing personal data about police officers and bodyguards protecting Spain’s royal family and the prime minister.Other arrests were in Argentina, Chile and Colombia, and 250 items of computer equipment and mobile phones were seized across 15 cities, Interpol said.

It said Colombia’s Ministry of Defence and presidential websites as well as Chile’s Endesa electricity company were among the targets of the hackers. The loosely organised group Anonymous is suspected of being behind coordinated computer hacking against institutions, multinationals and government organisations across the world.

“These cyber attacks were sometimes individual actions but they were supported by many people who joined forces and knowledge to commit them,” Spanish police said in a statement. “Those arrested … had a high level of knowledge of information technology.”

Earlier this month, anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks began publishing more than 5 million emails from US-based global security analysis company Stratfor believed to have been obtained by Anonymous supporters. Read the full article »»»»


Apple Factory Hacked In Global Protest

Posted: February 15th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Hack!, News From the web, Technoid Computer News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Apple Factory Hacked In Global Protest

Apple Factory Hacked In Global ProtestAsher Moses from SMH Digital-Life is reporting that the world’s biggest tech manufacturer Foxconn has been hacked and highly sensitive data leaked online amid a global protest stunt against working conditions in the factories that make Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

The hacktivist group know as Swagg Security broke into Foxconn’s systems using a vulnerability contained in an old version of Internet Explorer that had been installed on a staff member’s computer.

SwaggSec published a file on the open internet containing much of the pilfered information including the username and password used by Foxconn boss Terry Gou.

The leak also meant miscreants could place bogus orders with Foxconn, which has since shut down affected servers. Foxconn has been at the centre of a sustained storm around working conditions in Chinese factories. It has numerous partners including IBM and Dell but Apple has received by far the most flack from activists looking to press the company into taking leadership on the issue :: Read the full Digital Life post »»»»

UPDATED: Indian Hackers Set to Release Full Symantec-Norton Antivirus Code

Posted: January 6th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Technoid Computer News, UPDATED! | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on UPDATED: Indian Hackers Set to Release Full Symantec-Norton Antivirus Code

UDATED Indian Hackers Set to Release Hacker the Full Symantec-Norton Antivirus CodeIndia has had some serious issues dealing with technology over the past decade, the country has gone from a potential tech behemoth to an open joke. An Indian hacking group, calling itself the Lords of Dharmaraja, has threatened to publicly disclose the source code on the internet. So far, there have been two claims related to Symantec’s source code.

A document claiming to be confidential information related to Norton AntiVirus’s source code was posted on Pastebin. Symantec says it has investigated the claim, and  rather than source code, most of the hackers booty  seems to have been documentation dated April 1999, the documentation is related to an API – application programming interface – used by the product.

In a later posting to Pastebin, the hacking group shared what it said was source code. However, it seems the code is related to what appears to have been the 2006 version of Symantec’s Norton AntiVirus.

Almost as quickly as the Hackers post documents, accounts are closed, documents removed and the smoke and mirror game goes no-place. The hacking group claim that they are working on creating mirror sites for their content, though nothing of any real substance has come through.

The group are claiming that they have been “pressured and censored by US and Indian government agencies.” It’s important to underline that there is presently no reason to believe that Symantec’s own servers have been compromised in any way.

It appears that the data leak has occurred on Indian government servers, which are notoriously unsecured, the implication is that Symantec, and perhaps other software companies, may have been required to supply their source code to the Indian authorities. The source code the hackers have released is NOT relevant to ANY of Symantec’s current anti-virus products, the source code is 6 years old.  This is very likely a case of over-excited Indian Hackers.

The serious question now is: Has Symantec misled the Indaina government by feeding it old, redundant code, or are Indian Hackers truly going the way of Indian call center operators? :: Read the full article »»»»
