FTC Privacy Probe Settlement Imposes $5 Billion Penalty, New Restrictions and Modified Corporate Structure on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg Held Personally Responsible for Privacy Programs Compliance

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that Facebook will pay a record-breaking $5 billion penalty and submit to new restrictions and a modified corporate structure to hold the company accountable for the decisions it makes about its users’ privacy. The fine and new restrictions settle an FTC investigation into whether Facebook violated a 2012 FTC order by deceiving users about their ability to control the privacy of their personal information specifically in regards to the data of  87 million Facebook users used without their permission in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Under the settlement between Facebook and the FTC, Mark Zuckerberg is held personally responsible in a limited fashion and will have to personally certify his company’s compliance with its privacy programs. False certifications could expose him to civil or criminal penalties.

Treasury Department Imposes Sanctions on Three North Korean State-Sponsored Hacking Groups

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced sanctions targeting three North Korean state-sponsored malicious cyber groups, Lazarus Group and two of Lazarus Group’s sub-groups known as Bluenoroff, and Andariel, which the government said is responsible for North Korea’s malicious cyber activity on critical infrastructure. All three groups are controlled by the U.S.- and United Nations (UN)-designated RGB, which is North Korea’s primary intelligence bureau. Lazarus Group was, among other things, involved in the destructive WannaCry 2.0 ransomware attack which the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom publicly attributed to North Korea in December 2017. Bluenoroff has attempted to steal over $1.1 billion dollars from financial institutions and, according to press reports, had successfully carried out such operations against banks in Bangladesh, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, Chile, and Vietnam. Andariel has committed a host of financial crimes and was observed by cybersecurity firms attempting to steal bank card information by hacking into ATMs to withdraw cash or steal customer information to later sell on the black market, the Treasury Department stated in its announcement.

Google’s Bid to Encrypt Domain Names Through DNS over TLS Catches Antitrust Attention After Cable, Telcos Complain About Losing Access to Consumer Data

Google’s effort to encrypt domain names through DNS over TLS in Chrome has caught the attention of U.S. antitrust investigators because of concerns that it could give the company a competitive advantage by making it harder for others to access consumer data.  The House Judiciary Committee is investigating the “decision regarding whether to adopt or promote the adoption” of the protocol, which Google plans to implement to improve Internet security. The Justice Department said it has “recently received complaints” about the practice. Cable and phone companies fear being shut out of user data if browser users move wholesale to this new standard. They also fear that Google may compel its Chrome browser users to switch to Google services that support the protocol, something Google said it does not plan to do.

Employees in Capital One’s Cybersecurity Unit Raised Concerns With Auditors, Human Resources and Senior Executives Prior to Recent Major Data Breach, Sources

Even before the recent massive data breach at the company, employees inside Capital One’s cybersecurity unit raised concerns with the bank’s internal auditors, human-resources department and other senior executives about what they saw as high turnover in the unit and a failure to promptly install some software to help spot and defend against hacks, according to people familiar with the matter. About a third of the unit’s employees left in 2018.

FISA Court Found FBI’s Efforts to Conduct Warrantless Database Searches on Americans Violated the Law and the Constitution

In a rare rebuke to U.S. spying programs, a secret surveillance court, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court, last year found that the FBI’s efforts to search for data about Americans violated the law authorizing the program, as well as the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches. The ruling was just made public by the intelligence community after the government lost an appeal of the judgment earlier this year before another secret court. The latest decision found that there were improper searches of raw intelligence databases by the bureau in 2017 and 2018 that was part of a warrantless Internet surveillance program. One fundamental problem was the breadth of the searches, which sometimes involved queries related to thousands or tens of thousands of pieces of data, such as emails or telephone numbers. The court found the FBI strayed from its mandate to search only for evidence of a crime or for foreign intelligence information. In one case, the FBI conducted searches to vet its personnel and cooperating sources.

@attackerman: NEW: It was kept secret for a year, but the FBI’s backdoor searches of NSA dragnets for Americans’ info were the subject of a big court fight the government lost. On one day in 2017 alone, FBI warrantlessly searched 6800 times using Social Security #s.
@trevortimm: Wow. The FISA Court secretly ruled last year that the FBI made *tens of thousands* of unconstitutional searches into Americans' private data, as part of its surveillance program that supposedly targets people overseas.
@snowden: Wow: The @FBI is running a warrantless internet surveillance program so flagrantly unconstitutional that even the secret, rubber-stamp "court" that approved 99.967% (!) of surveillance requests over 33 years (!!) felt they couldn't turn a blind eye. https://wsj.com/articles/fbis-
@dnvolz: BREAKING NEWS: The FBI's use of a controversial foreign surveillance tool violated Americans' constitutional privacy rights, FISA Court finds, dealing a rare rebuke to U.S. spying activities.
@ronwyden: Last year, when Congress reauthorized Section 702 of FISA, it accepted the FBI’s outright refusal to account for all its warrantless backdoor searches of Americans.

Barr’s Request for Facebook to Postpone End-To-End Messaging Encryption, New Data-Sharing Pact With UK Revive Encryption Backdoor Fight

Reigniting a long-standing fight between the government and the tech community, U.S. Attorney General William Barr has asked Facebook to hold off on plans to add encryption throughout its messaging services until it figures out a way to provide government access to the services for investigative purposes. Barr also signed an agreement with the U.K. that would make it quicker for British police to request data from internet companies by circumventing the Justice Department and going to firms directly. Both of these moves promise another high-stakes clash over encryption, a battleground that has been relatively calm since James Comey high-stakes fight with Apple’s refusal to decrypt an iPhone used by the San Bernardino shooter in 2016. Tech companies have long argued that any technique that would give the government access to encryption systems would undermine their overall security. The government says that as more criminals flock to encrypted communications, law enforcement is in the dark regarding criminal activities.

European Central Bank Said One of Its Websites Was Hacked and Injected With Malicious Software via Externally Hosted Website, Contact Information of 481 Subscribers Possibly Stolen

The European Central Bank, which supervises data protection at Europe’s largest banks, said that it temporarily shut down one of its websites after it was hacked and injected with malicious software via its Banks’ Integrated Reporting Dictionary (BIRD) website, which is hosted by an external third party.  The central bank said neither its internal systems nor market-sensitive data were affected but that contact information of 481 subscribers of the site’s newsletter may have been obtained.
