[ISN] Small-time security threats bigger concern

http://www.autonews.com/article/20150309/FINANCE_AND_INSURANCE/303099941/small-time-security-threats-bigger-concern By David Barkholz Automotive News March 9, 2015 The biggest threats to a dealership’s data aren’t Russian hackers breaking through electronic firewalls or robots trying a thousand passwords on security codes until they finally crack into the system. It’s more likely the mundane stuff that will cause a breach that enables personal consumer data to slip out of the store, said Brad Miller, director of legal and regulatory affairs for the National Automobile Dealers Association. Watch out, he said, for laptops that may contain sensitive files being stolen out of cars. A thumb drive that contains code capable of capturing passwords or data can be plugged into the laptop. Also, software vendors long ago dropped by a dealership may retain active pass codes that enable data to be taken from the dealership, unbeknownst to store employees, Miller said. Or pirates may send dealership employees a “phishing” email hoping to fool one into giving out information or a password that opens the system to the thieves. […]

[ISN] Cyber-hacking SI student changed grades from his smartphone: cops

http://nypost.com/2015/02/27/cyber-hacking-si-student-changed-grades-from-his-smartphone-cops/ By Frank Rosario, Erin Calabrese and Natalie O’Neill The New York Post February 27, 2015 He’s pretty brilliant for a kid with bad grades. A tech-savvy Staten Island high-school student who studied advanced computer programming at an NYU camp used his skills to hack into a secure computer system and improve his scores, sources told The Post Thursday. Eric Walstrom, 16, a junior at New Dorp HS, made it past a password barrier and software security system using a computer in the school and set up the network so he could access it from his smartphone, the sources said. Between Dec. 14 and Feb. 9, he pulled up his report cards and transcripts and “changed those grades,” according to a criminal complaint. “You’d think a kid smart enough to hack his school’s computers would already have good grades. Maybe the DOE should hire him to expose weaknesses in their security firewalls,” a law-enforcement source said. […]

[ISN] Australian infosec budgets are probably wrong: Deloitte

http://www.zdnet.com/article/australian-infosec-budgets-are-probably-wrong-deloitte/ By Stilgherrian ZDNet News February 4, 2015 Australian organisations are lagging when it comes to shifting the focus of their information security efforts from merely securing their networks to detecting intrusions, responding to them, and building resilience, according to senior security and risk executives from Deloitte, the international consulting firm. Deloitte divides an organisation’s infosec spend into three areas, each labelled with an adjective. “Secure” is the technology that protects critical assets against known and emerging threats across the ecosystem. This includes traditional network protection capabilities such as firewalls, anti-malware and anti-spam systems, and intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS). “Vigilant” is about having the intelligence and monitoring capabilities to detect both known and unknown bad-guy activities, and understanding the extent to which they’re a risk to the business.
