Apple and Google Roll Out Support for Their Coronavirus Exposure Notification System, Three U.S. States, Twenty-Two Countries Sign Up

In a move that makes digital contact tracing one step closer to reality in the U.S. and other countries, Apple and Google rolled out support for their coronavirus exposure notification system, as implemented in an update to iOS and Android. The joint system uses a complex BLE Beacon protocol to allow users to track recent exposures to other users who have tested positive for COVID-19. Both tech giants pledge not to monetize the data and to shut down the system once the tracking is no longer needed. Three U.S. states have come forward to announce their own notification systems based on the app – Alabama, South Carolina, and North Dakota. The companies say 22 countries have separately received access to the API, although it declined to name specific nations.

Zoom CEO Apologizes for Security and Privacy Glitches, Says Company Will Implement 90-Day Feature Freeze and Work with Third-Party Experts to Produce Transparency Report

Wildly popular videoconferencing app Zoom has been battered with a series of privacy and security controversies since its meteoric rise during the COVID-19 crisis even as the company has quickly signed up 200 million new users. In the wake of these controversies, CEO Eric S. Yuan has written a lengthy blog post to address some of the concerns around Zoom. In particular, Yuan said that Zoom is enacting a 90-day feature freeze during which the company won’t ship any new feature until it is done fixing the current feature set. Zoom will also work with third-party experts and prepare a transparency report. Yuan apologized for the glitches saying that “We did not design the product with the foresight that, in a matter of weeks, every person in the world would suddenly be working, studying, and socializing from home.”

Virgin Media Database Containing Personal Data of 900,000 People Was Left Unsecured on Public Internet for Ten Months

British telephone, television, and Internet giant Virgin Media said that a database containing the personal details of 900,000 people was left unsecured and accessible online for ten months and was accessed on at least one occasion by an unknown user. The marketing database contained phone numbers, home, and email addresses. Virgin Media was notified of the problem after a security researcher at TurgenSec spotted it. The database consisted almost entirely of customers with television or fixed-line telephone accounts. However, it also included some Virgin Mobile customers as well as potential customers referred by friends as part of a promotion. U.S. cable company Liberty Global owns Virgin Media.

Germany’s Merkel Confirms She Was Hacked by Russia’s Fancy Bear Group, Says It ‘Pains’ Her But She Still Wants Good Relations With Russia

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has confirmed that she was targeted by hackers who are part of Russian military intelligence (GRU) group Fancy Bear, also known as APT28. She said that although the hacking was “outrageous” and “pains” her, she will seek “to strive for good relations with Russia.” The 2015 hack was reported by Der Spiegel magazine and involved the theft of data from computers in the German parliament. The Russian hackers also reportedly obtained emails from two of Merkel’s email accounts spanning 2012 through 2015.

Researchers Flag Wide-Ranging Security Flaws in UK’s COVID-19 App Currently in Trial on Isle of Wight

Wide-ranging security flaws have been flagged in the COVID-19 contact-tracing app being piloted in the Isle of Wight, according to a team of academic researchers. The researchers are calling for new legal protections to prevent officials using the data for purposes other than identifying those at risk of being infected or holding on to it indefinitely. They’re also urging the UK’s NHS running the trial to consider switching from a centralized version to a decentralized version of the app. Among the flaws identified by the researchers are weaknesses in the registration process that could allow attackers to steal encryption keys, storing unencrypted data on handsets that could potentially be used by law enforcement, generating a new random ID code for users once a day rather than once every 15 minutes, as is the case with Apple-Google’s decentralized app.

Man Behind the ILOVEYOU Virus is 44-Year-Old Filipino Onel de Guzman, Says He Didn’t Expect the Malware to Spread Globally

The man behind the ILOVEYOU virus, which infected millions of machines around the world twenty years, has been identified as Filipino Onel de Guzman, now 44. DeGuzman says he unleashed the Love Bug computer worm to steal passwords so he could access the internet without paying and never expected it to spread globally. Back in 2000, victims received an email attachment entitled LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU, which contained malware that would overwrite files, steal passwords, and automatically send copies of itself to all contacts in the victim’s Microsoft Outlook address book. The virus overwhelmed computer systems around the world and led to damage and disruption that cost billions of dollars.

UK Spies Will Need to Fight AI Attacks From Adversaries With AI Technology of Their Own, Report

UK spies will need to use artificial intelligence (AI) to counter a range of threats because adversaries are likely to use the technology in their attacks, a report from the Royal United Services Institute (Rusi). Among the future AI threats the UK may face are deepfakes, as well as efforts to mutate malware for cyber-attacks, making it harder for conventional systems to detect – or even to repurpose and control drones to carry out attacks. The report says that the adoption of AI will be gradual augmentation of existing processes rather than the arrival of innovative futuristic capabilities.

Hackers Are Registering Domains With ‘Zoom’ in the Name to Lure Victims Into Downloading Malware

Researchers at Check Point recently discovered a technique that could have allowed a threat actor to identify and join increasingly ubiquitous active Zoom meetings. Since the beginning of the year, more than 1700 new domains were registered with the name Zoom in them, and 25% were registered in the past week. Out of these registered domains, 4% have been found to contain suspicious characteristics indicating that hackers see the rise of Zoom as an opportunity to deceive, lure, and exploit. Some of the domains lead to the downloading of malicious files that, when executed, installed potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) such as InstallCore, a bundleware application that’s known to install other kinds of malware. The CheckPoint researchers said they also discovered phishing sites masquerading as the legitimate Google Classroom website, another distance communication application that is soaring in the time of coronavirus, to trick unwitting users into downloading malware.

EasyJet Says Personal Data on Nine Million Customers Were Accessed in ‘Highly Sophisticated’ Cyberattack, Over Two Thousand Customers’ Credit Card Details Stolen

European budget airlines EasyJet has revealed that the personal information of 9 million customers was accessed in a “highly sophisticated” cyberattack on the airline. The company said that email addresses and travel details were accessed, and it would contact the customers affected. Of the 9 million people affected, 2,208 had credit card details stolen, but no passport details were uncovered. Those customers whose credit card details were taken have been contacted, while everyone else affected will be contacted by 26 May. EasyJet offered no details of the hack but said it had “closed off this unauthorized access” and reported the incident to the National Cyber Security Centre and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the data regulator.

Likely DDoS Attack Took Down Minneapolis Police Department and City of Minneapolis Websites, Hacktivist Group Anonymous Said to Be Attacker

In what was likely a DDoS attack, the website of the Minneapolis Police Department, as well as the website of the City of Minneapolis, became inaccessible on Saturday night with the decentralized hacker collective Anonymous widely considered to be the source of the assault. The outage of the sites came after a Facebook page claiming affiliation with Anonymous posted a video on May 28 warning the Minneapolis PD that it “will be exposing your many crimes to the world” and that “this week’s brutal killing of George Floyd… is merely the tip of the iceberg in a long list of high-profile cases of wrongful death at the hands of officers in your state.”
