Smart gadgets from guns to cars ripe for hacking

Hackers are not just after your computer: connected devices from cars to home security systems to sniper rifles are now targets for actors looking to steal or cause mischief. The rapid growth in the “Internet of Things” has opened up new opportunities for cyber attacks and new markets for cyber defenders. This is among the hot topics at a Black Hat computer security conference that kicks off in Las Vegas on Sunday and an infamous Def Con hacker gathering that follows. http://dlvr.it/Bjp4Ds

United Airlines Flights Temporarily Grounded Nationwide Over ‘Automation Issues,’ FAA Says

United Airlines flights were temporarily halted nationwide this morning after the FAA said a computer glitch – something it called “automation issues” – forced planes to be grounded.

The FAA’s Air traffic Control System Command Center reported that planes have been grounded at all airports, although the system slowly returned back to normal.

New York Stock Exchange Suspends Trading

The New York Stock Exchange unexpectedly shut down trading in all of its listed stocks late Wednesday morning.

The exchange did not immediately give an explanation for what caused the shutdown. In an alert on its website, it wrote: “Additional information will follow as soon as possible.”

The New York Stock Exchange, which is now owned by Intercontinental Exchange, has had, like other stock exchanges, technical difficulties in the past, but the scale of the problem on Wednesday has little precedent.

Nearly 45 minutes after the shutdown, there was still little clarity on what was causing the problem. Stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange continued trading on other exchanges, such as Nasdaq.

What are you guys doing on the other side of the Atlantic? Is this a series of unfortunate events, coordinated cyberattack or just SKYNET achieving sentinece?  

What In The World Just Happened To The New York Stock Exchange? 

Do you believe that the New York Stock Exchange shut down because of a “technical glitch” last Wednesday?  At 11:32 AM on Wednesday morning, trading on the New York Stock Exchange was halted due to “internal technical issues”, and it did not resume until 3:10 PM.  Officials insist that there is no evidence that a cyberattack caused the technical problems even though hactivists had hinted that something may happen the night before.  

Adding to the suspicion is the fact that United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal also experienced very serious “technical glitches” on Wednesday. 

 Others found it very curious that trading on the NYSE was halted just after Chinese stocks had absolutely plummeted the night before.  In fact, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index experienced the largest one day decline that we have witnessed since November 2008.  So is there more going on here than meets the eye?

Overall, the Dow was down 261 points on Wednesday, and the Dow and the S&P 500 both closed below their 200 day moving averages.  Iron ore had its biggest daily price drop ever, and the price of oil continued to decline.  But it was the stunning shut down of the New York Stock Exchange that made headlines all over the world…

Developed by Norse Corp., a company dedicated to monitoring and providing intelligence on global cyber warfare, the Attack Map shows in real-time all the cyber attacks currently happening on the Norse network: where the attacks originate, where they’re going, what kind of attacks they are, and so on. Each shooting streak of light is color coded after a different kind of attack: telnet is green, http-proxy is aqua, unknown is purple, and so on.

New Post has been published on http://rebootingliberty.com/pentagon-email-system-taken-offline-cybercom-investigating/

Pentagon email system taken offline, CyberCom investigating

The Pentagon’s unclassified email network was shut down Tuesday following the detection of suspicious activity over the weekend.

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, makes use of the email network, as do countless other military personnel and civilian contractors, CNN reports.

It’s unclear exactly what occurred, given that officials are providing only scant details on the incident. But according to Pentagon spokesman Army Lt. Col. Valerie Henderson, Cyber Command is currently investigating to extract more information. The origination of the suspicious activity is unknown, though earlier in July, the Department of Defense sent out an email stating that a minimum of five users had been targeted by sophisticated attacks linked back to Russia.

“While I am somewhat comforted to hear that the malware was discovered on some systems, it is a virtual certainty that there are more instances of this malware inside the DOD and whatever other parts of our infrastructure this enemy has targeted,” Michael Adams, a former employee at U.S. Special Operations Command, told The Daily Beast.

Henderson added that the decision to shut down the network was an internal one and not forced by outside actors.

“We continue to identify and mitigate cybersecurity risks across our networks,” Henderson said in a statement to Reuters. “With those goals in mind, we have taken the Joint Staff network down and continue to investigate.”

In the meantime, Dempsey and other personnel have been able to make use of a backup system for unclassified email.

This interactive map visualises captured hacker attempts to break into systems. It is visually appealing experience, but it is also terrifying. What you see on the map is just a fraction of what is really going on in the virtual space. While watching this firework you realise the importance of firewall and antivirus on your computer.
