EQIFAX DATA BREACH.

The Equifax data breach is one of the deadliest cyberattacks in the modern times not only in terms of affected people but also due to the intensity of accessed personal data. Equifax reported that between mid-May and June 2017, their system was hacked and the personal information of 173 million customers was exposed. Below we highlight some incites about this breach and then take a look at exactly how this was accomplished at the bottom.

Accessed information

According to Equifax, the hackers were able to access customer’s names, Social Security Number, customer’s date of birth, card numbers, addresses and driver’s license numbers.

Why this breach is one of the deadliest attacks

The Yahoo data breach in 2016 had 1 billion customers affected where only the passwords and phone numbers were accessed. But in the case of Equifax, sensitive data was accessed which means that:

Criminals can use the Social Security number to other credit accounts using a customer’s names.
Hackers can also maneuver their way and shop online using the credit card details obtained.
The hackers can sell the data to other criminals which makes the effect very grave.
An accessed customer’s data is not immune to future’s fraud, extortion and blackmail. The accessed information can haunt a customer forever.
How to find out if your information was exposed

Equifax has established a “Potential Impact” tab on its website (www.equifaxsecurity2017.com) that helps …

This was literally copied and pasted from hackingloops.

Let's go to a "Security" site from a company that hid the fact that they had a massive data breach that affected (more or less) everyone with a credit score in the US. Let's plug in our SSN anyway (fun fact, it doesn't matter if you are on a secure system or using encryption if the destination isn't secure).

This is my school project / assignment scenario - I have to draw a Logical Network Design...NEED HELP

The rollout of the wireless network has been suspended for now, but the stock analysis tool is being implemented. It is to be called My Stock Analysis Tool (MSAT). MSAT is going to use a three-tier client-server architecture. The tiers will be a web browser at the client end, a separate web server tier, and the MSAT server that performs application logic and all the data storage and access logic. In this way, there is no issue with installing/supporting a software client on end-user computers. Both customers and DRUB staff will use MSAT through a web-based interface, although staff may see extra options. Apart from accessing MSAT, staff also use Microsoft spreadsheet and word processing software on their computers (Windows XP PCs and laptops) for preparing reports, with work-in-progress files stored on staff computers.

Cyber News Rundown: Edition 11/10/17

UK-Based Cryptocurrency Hit By Cyberattack

Prior to the official launch of Electroneum, a UK-based cryptocurrency that uses smartphones for its mining process, was targeted by a DDoS attack that shut down both the website and the app for several days. The attack effectively blocked all users from accessing their accounts, as the entire network was forced offline, to ensure the safety of investors’ funds.

Canadian University Held for Ransom

In the past week, officials have been working with affected students to secure their personal information after hackers breached the university’s systems and gained access to student records. The university has since taken its email system offline, as the hackers were spreading the leaked information throughout the email lists. Along with the data circulation, the hackers also demanded the university pay a large ransom of roughly 23,000 USD within 48 hours, though officials are still uncertain when the breach itself occurred.

WaterMiner Cryptocurrency Mod for GTA 5

As more cryptocurrency miners are embedded in software, one Russian hacker has gone a step further by exploiting a mod for the popular game Grand Theft Auto 5. The exploit silently uses a computer’s power to mine digital currency and, with the help of a modified version of the XMRig miner, can hide itself if it suspects monitoring software is active.

Rigzone Founder Caught Stealing Data

Over the last few months, officials have been piecing together the case against Rigzone founder, David Kent. After selling the Rigzone domain several years ago, Kent used several backdoors he’d implemented to access account information for over 700,000 customers, which he then attempted to sell back to Rigzone. By setting up several dummy accounts, Rigzone staff determined the specific IP address Kent used and apprehend him.

Criminals Hack Eastern Europe Bank for Millions

In the last year, banks in several Eastern European countries have seen a drastic rise in fraudulent charges at ATMs that have allowed hackers to make off with nearly $40 million dollars. Attackers start by manipulating the banks overdraft protection and setting up proxies to allow accomplices in other countries withdraw massive quantities of money from separate accounts. In addition to spoofing the overdraft system, the attackers also installed remote access software on bank computers to enable further intrusion to the institution’s systems.

This may be better raised as a question rather than a post using the Networking topic (assuming it is network access to which you refer). Use the big blue button at the top of the screen to start question. At the bottom of the question screen there is an option to add topics; same as you have done here with Microsoft Access.

I have googled "access point products" and see numerous suppliers but not one that gives an overview of different items, except Amazon who will have their share of reviews for specific products.

Adjust the google search to "access point reviews" and you get some links that may be of use.

I recently passed my Microsoft 70-346 Exam.  As part of my revision I used Flash Cards that I created to help memorise key information.  The Flash Cards have been created on Cram and I've recently made them public.  You can access them from here:

http://www.cram.com/flashcards/70-346-8863906

I've gone overboard on the amount of information on there but It might help those attempting to pass this exam.  Obviously this is to be used in conjunction with other courses.  I can recommend the course on Platform Scholar.

The information on the Flashcards are valid as far as I am aware.  Obviously I take no liability for incorrect information.
