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.

Dropbox Engineers Were So Concerned About Zoom’s Security in 2019 That The Company Launched a Bug Bounty Program to Find Holes in the Video Conference App, Report

Despite what Zoom and some of its advisers say, the meteoric video conferencing app’s security woes don’t solely stem from the company’s scorching growth since the coronavirus crisis hit. Former Dropbox engineers say the company’s current security plight can be traced back two years or more, and they argue that the company’s failure to overhaul its security practices back then put its business clients at risk. The Dropbox engineers grew so concerned that vulnerabilities in the videoconferencing system might compromise its corporate security that the file-hosting giant took on the unusual step of policing Zoom’s security practices itself, launching in early 2019 a bug bounty program through a HackerOne Singapore to find holes in Zoom’s software code and that of a few other companies.  The engineers say they were “stunned” by the volume of bugs the bounty program uncovered in Zoom’s system.

Australia Accuses Foreign Nation-State of Cyberattacks on Political Parties, Parliament Ahead of May Elections

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that Australia’s political parties suffered cyber attacks alongside the Parliament House computer network several weeks ago by a “sophisticated state actor,” fueling speculation that China was involved in the attacks just three months before the country’s federal elections in May although Morrison didn’t specify the source of the attacks. The Liberal, Labor, and Nationals were affected by the attacks which are understood to bear the hallmarks of Chinese hacking efforts although it’s possible that other attackers might have sought to emulate China’s techniques. Morrison said he has instructed “the Australian Cyber Security Centre to be ready to provide any political party or electoral body in Australia with immediate support, including making their technical experts available.” There is no evidence that any data had been taken or altered nor is there evidence that Australia’s voting infrastructure was affected.

Australian Census Site Hit With Four Attacks By Foreign Hackers, ABS

The Australian Census website was brought down today, the deadline for census form completion, by four attacks attributed to foreign hackers, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). Although the nature of the attacks are uncertain, many cybersecurity specialists say they were probably DDoS attacks. Australia’s Census Bureau has come under criticism for plans to pursue opt-out online form submission and to maintain personal data for four years rather than 18 months.

Police Raid Home of Journalist Who Wrote About Potential for Spy Agency to Access Australians’ Digital Records Without Warrants, Hack Into Critical Infrastructure to Disrupt and Remove Cyber Threats

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) raided the home of political journalist Annika Smethurst following a story she wrote that was published by the News Corp Australia publication the Daily Telegraph. The article detailed a discussion between two government agencies on the potential for new surveillance powers for Australia’s electronic spy agency, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). The article included photographs of top-secret internal documents that detailed a proposal to allow the ASD to target Australians if approved by the Defence and Home Affairs ministers. A source told Smethurst that the proposal would allow government spies to access the digital records of ordinary Australians, such as financial transactions, health data, and phone records, without a warrant and that it would grant authorities the ability to forcibly coerce government agencies and private businesses to comply with an order to provide information on Australian citizens. Moreover, the plan under discussion would reportedly allow the ASD’s hackers to “proactively disrupt and covertly remove” cyber threats within Australia by “hacking into critical ­infrastructure.” The AFP confirmed the raid and said the documents published in the article represent a national security breach.

Australia Introduces Bill to Force Tech Providers to Provide Encrypted Message Access

Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull this morning announced that a new proposed cybersecurity law that would force tech companies, such as Apple, Facebook and Google, to provide access to encrypted messages sent by suspected terrorists or cyber criminals, a move that would jeopardize any security protections that encryption provides. The new law, slated for introduction in Parliament by November, would be modeled on Britain’s Investigatory Powers Act, or Snooper’s Charter. Facebook has already announced that it would resist this measure and it’s likely that many tech giants will follow suit.

Private Data of Nearly 100,000 Customers of Australia’s Westpac Bank Exposed in Enumeration Attacks on Real-Time Payments Platform PayID

The private details of almost 100,000 bank customers of Australian bank and financial services providers Westpac have been exposed in a cyber attack on the real-time payments platform PayID, which allows the instant transfer of money between banks using either a mobile number or email address. PayID operates like a telephone book, allowing anyone to type in a mobile number or email address and have it confirm the name of the corresponding account holder, leaving it open to an enumeration attack that allows numbers to be changed at random to access names and phone numbers of thousands of bank customers. In a confidential memo, the bank said it discovered on May 22 that around 600,000 PayID lookups occurred from seven compromised Westpac Live accounts and the attacker was successful in accessing 98,000 of the lookups. The attacks, which are still ongoing on a “semi-daily” basis according to the memo, have been occurring since April 7 and that the logins indicate the fraudsters are based in the U.S.

The Long Reach of the Yahoo Breach: Worry About Flickr, Tumblr, Other Yahoo Sites

The just emerging implications of the massive Yahoo breach are vast, starting with the fact that other Yahoo-owned properties such as Flickr, Tumblr and fantasy football site Rivals.com have likely also been compromised. Experts are advising any users of other Yahoo-owned properties also change passwords for accounts with those sites as well.
