The Security Box, podcast 195: What Are .env Files and why should I care?
Hello folks, welcome to podcast 195 of the security box. Let's start off with a set of questions that came out of something we did not cover as part of last week's box. If you listen via the podcast, please submit your guesses before the answers are revealed. I'll personally give you credit where credit is due, and we can work out what you will get upon correct answers. The questions are: What 8 companies, 1 of which was part of the big ticket master breach were attacked? What small time actor group took responsibility for these 8 company attacks?which two companies disputed the hack? Finally, what was the most recent company that came out with confirming they were part of the actors fiasco? We also are going to cover the news, the landscape, Lastpass' recent fiasco that can happen to anyone and more. Our topic this week will be the talking about environment files that are used to store secrets including keys, usernames and passwords. Apparently these files, known as .env files are wide open and can be taken for use. Enjoy the program and thanks so much for listening! Our Scam of the Week Kelly, formerly Kelly Services has been targeting users who know the JRN's work. Kelly informed the JRN that this scam has been going around in this form for at least 5 months. The first report came from TSB's participant, Preston Gaylor. The second came from another subscriber who assists me in another capacity. Please read this blog post titled New scam from work provider, Kelly (formerly Kelly Services) for complete details on this. We link to the official web site where you too, can alert them about this scam. The representative informed me that they have over 500 copies of this and asked about the version that is going around. We'll be discussing this as part of the program, don't worry! Our Question If you intend to play, please do not look at the answers given below. We also are linking to sources of further reading too. Our Question What 8 companies, 1 of which was part of the big ticket master breach were attacked? What small time actor group took responsibility for these 8 company attacks?which two companies disputed the hack? Finally, what was the most recent company that came out with confirming they were part of the actors fiasco? The Answer: Skip if you intend to participate and win Answer: Snowflake, Anheuser-Busch, State Farm, Mitsubishi, Progressive, Neiman Marcus, Allstate, and Advance Auto Parts. Progressive and Mitsubishi disputed the threat actor’s claims while Advance Auto Parts recently came out with details of their breach. Sources from the blog: Live Nation confirms breach at Ticketmaster Advance auto parts confirms breach, numbers don’t match Snowflake’s breach may be bigger than we think, let’s add yet another company to the mix The links lead to our blog, where you can read more. Lastpass needs a break here, this can happen to anyone This can happen to anyone. While people want to jump ship because of this most recent outage, I don't blame them. It turns out, it was because of their chrome extension that somehow went completely ape and could have sent a DDOS attack. I don't want to go that far, but it was a 12-hour outage if not longer. I recently had to sign in and I was successful, and this happened on Thursday, June 6, 2024. This can happen to anyone, lastpass had a bad extension causing havoc is the blog post that leads to the story. I believe this could happen to anyone. Other News This is crazy, more snowflake news: “We aren’t going to require MFA” 23andMe now being investigated for the 2023 breach Exposed tokens equals getting owned Google sends large check, google avoids jury trial Christie’s notifies people of ransomware attack, ransomhub takes them and Frontier telecom We thought TikTok was bad, News Break seems to be worse What are .env files and why should I care? Why should I care about .env files in the first place? Our main topic discusses this and it isn't a good thing if you don't. The JRN tried to take paragraphs that disclosed information which supports why it is a bad idea for this file to be in the open and we also tried to take data that showed what these files contain. Websites exposing over a million secrets, leaving visitors at risk is the blog from Cybernews that we'll take from to lead this discussion.

The Security box, podcast 192: Open Forum
Hello folks, welcome to program 192 of the security box. This week, its going to be an open forum. We'll cover the news, we'll answer any questions that people have, and we'll traverse the landscape. No major topic, but a big piece of news about an arrest. News, Notes and the landscape Incognito The biggest news coming out of the landscape is incognito's demise for good. the main man was arrested at a New York Airport. If convicted, he's going to spend a lot of time in jail. Each article is written a bit differently, and we want to be fair in our coverage and give you different perspectives. Owner of Incognito dark web drugs market arrested in New York Bleeping Computer The Press Release from the Justice Department: “Incognito Market” Owner Arrested for Operating One of the Largest Illegal Narcotics Marketplaces on the Internet The Justice Department 23-year-old man accused of running $100 million online narcotics marketplace | Ars Technica. Ars Technica AI CSAM This blew my mind. I don't know about anyone else, but this was wild. FBI Arrests Man For Generating AI Child Sexual Abuse Imagery comes from 404 media. This will prove that doing something like this, even if you start with other perps will eventually get you in trouble. An Arrest out of Arizona Arizona woman arrested and charged in North Korean IT worker scheme comes to us from Cyberscoop. She was not alone, there's another suspect mentioned and it goes in to details on who gets what if convicted. More potential news The following are linked from the blog. Accompanying articles are linked within. Windows 11 recall AI coming to a Windows 11 near you IOS and Ipad 17.5.1 PuTTY, Winscp targeted in Malware campaign Do you use Quick Assist? I’ve never heard of it! Our Things to ponder segment It seems as though Better Help is more in trouble than we thought. Besides the potential breaches, we spotted a video that talks about all kinds of stuff. Its 16 minutes, but I feel that this is of value. This is the link to the Youtube Video that we linked to from our blog post. If you want to see it, you may. This came from the mastodon account, Today I learned. Also read: Better help shares data to facebook as this is mentioned in the video. Our complete moron of the podcast This has to be the moron of the podcast. While you can carry around cards like drivers licenses digitlly, this guy who is named in the article did not. He also either stopped after starting a chase, or the owner was able through the app to stop the truck. Besides theft, the suspect has no license at all. Nice going! Tesla’s Cybertruck thief chase cut short by Delaware police is the article. Have fun with a fine, and other penalties that are coming with no drivers license.

The Security box, podcast 190: Is Age Verification Legal?The Security box, podcast 190: Is Age Verification Legal?
Hello everyone, welcome to podcast 190 of the security box. The big question is here on this week's podcast, and it is: "Is Age Verification legal?" Besides finding out the answer to this, we'll have the news, the notes and the landscape. Hope you'll enjoy the show as much as we are bringing it to you. LockbitSupp identified Huge news coming out of the press in regards to the mastermind of Lockbit. Don't be surprised if you find more coverage, but these are the articles from our sources. LockBit ransomware admin identified, sanctioned in US, UK, Australia Bleeping Computer LockBit gang leader exposed in FBI ransomware breakthrough CyberNews U.S. Charges Russian Man as Boss of LockBit Ransomware Group KrebsOnSecurity Ransomware mastermind LockBitSupp reveled in his anonymity—now he’s been ID’d Ars Technica As stated, there may be more than this around the web and the JRN will be blogging two, possibly all three or more if we find them. In the second, we not only know who he is, but what he's charged with. At the time of writing this in to the show notes, the JRN has not read Brian's article yet and only spotted signs of it on Mastodon as he does. Other Newsy things from the blog These items may be braught up as part of the blog and news segment. They are in no particular order. Are we surprised that TikTok will sue the U.S. Government? Chinese banks hit again Jack Dorsey praises Twitter for being “freedom technology” Fake tech support scams and sponsored search results The Yahoo boys are people you need to be aware of: Scripts, scams and more await Notice from Dropbox There may be others not listed here, and this could be a subset. Is Age Verification Legal? This segment may contain adult themes. According to an article that was read and blogged, age verification has been found to be legal. With Coppa in various parts of the world, and sites that need to make sure they're dealing with adults per content law, we think that this is a clear and cut open and closed case. But how do we do this now that most do the bear minimum but yet nothing in place to verify anything entered? For example, staff that do this show could say they're over age on a site like Live Journal when for example, the mix opened its blog there but yet the mix was not even of age. This could be an example used. What to read Age Verification is lawful the technology blog and podcast Court makes it clear – age verification on adult sites is constitutional Cybernews What do you think? If this is now the case, how to enforce such provisions that are already in place or adopt and follow new ones?

ESIM and sim swapping ESIM is relatively new, but one of my buddies has it. He says its much better since you don't need a Sim card. But is it? The blog post is titled E-sim is not as safe as you think and the article is titled SIM swappers hijacking phone numbers in eSIM attacks.

The Security Box, podcast 188: Incogni
Incogni claims that it can remove your personal info. How? We'll talk about it with an article that talked about them and I'll talk about where the JRN first heard of this valuable service. We'll also talk about the news, any notes, we've got corrections to xposedornot.com and the work I'm doing with them as testing is going well, and more. Xposed or not I'm not employed at Xposed, but I found some thing that got fixed. The table as well as tree view of the exposures page not properly giving correct dates, I.E. the table was showing 2023 items while the default view was not quite showing current dated items added to the site. We learn about the news page and its purpose while asking questions. We found a very interesting post about data exposures and their categories. At the time of writing, I don't have a blog post on this yet. Incogni I earlier blogged There are many data brokers, only one company that might help which links to an article titled Your data, their profit: the data brokers you know nothing about goes in to what's going on and who might be able to help. Yes, Incogni might just be the one that might do the job. Step on forward and learn.

The Security box, podcast 187: What's going on with our drinking water?
Hello everyone, welcome to program number 187 of the security box. On this program, we're going to talk about our drinking water. No, not the fact that it could taste bad or that it is the best water ever, we'll talk about the security aspect of where our drinking water comes from. Besides that, the news, the notes and the landscape. Remember to contact us with your questions, comments or concerns. If we don't know, we've got people that do, so get those questions in. Open forum: A New Service Recently, the Jared Rimer Network discovered a service in which we are happy to use. While haveibeenpwned.com is good, I do find some things that don't work well accessibly. While I got the domains to work, and those instructions were easy to follow, I did have issues with the service I'm about to recommend. I got it to work and it is more accessible. Even the exposed breaches may not be that extensive, both services get their breaches through verification. To learn more about the service Exposed or not, please view the latest blog post We have a new service up, accessible too for complete details. The service is spelled xposedornot. Drop the E. Some of the newsy items Unconfirmed, trust wallet could be at risk with a zero day Bot attacks as a top threat this year was supposed to be posted earlier but it missed its schedule Sans News Bites for April 16, 2024 Lawfirms now have AI Generated lawyers? Some may bring these up, but may bring other things as well. We'll have to see. Keep on reading! Topic: Our Drinking Water I've never really liked the taste of water. Especially from our faucets. But this podcast isn't talking about whether we like water, which we're told we should drink to keep ourselves healthy. I know, I know, I'm just as guilty as the rest when it comes to that. But this podcast isn't about whether we like the stuff, its about the security of how it gets to us. We know it goes through pipes, but do we honestly know how it gets to those pipes to how we drink it, cook with it, or use it in our coffee? There's an elaborate system, but is it as secure as it can be? Apparently, hackers can get in to these systems, and this is where we could be in some real trouble. The latest blog post I penned on this subject is titled Hackers interrupting critical drinking water which links to the CyberNews article US officials warn of hackers disrupting the “critical lifeline” of drinking water which was an interesting read. If you search for water by itself, you'll find other blogs like: Cyber Attack cuts off Water for 2 days Iran hits Pennsylvania water fascility Water treatment facility breached by California man and The Security box, podcast 52: The Security of our Water Supply, news notes and a very interesting robery story to boot The last item is a podcast where we talked about this before. There may be others including group names that may have water in its name, but the items above are the highlights of what I want to bring about for this discussion. With this knowledge and the article from CyberNews, where are we in this space? I guess we'll find out.

TSB podcast 185: AcidRain and AcidPour
Welcome to the security box, podcast 185. We have several things in Erata that we'll read, one coming in just before I was supposed to leave although that trip got postponed. While that thing we'll read is a week old, its still valuable. We also put in the Facebook thing I saw prior which might get people to chuckle. Our topic today is one dealing with Russia, and another Wiper Malware. The article we take from is from CyberNews, and we also blogged the thing. We'll have news, notes and more. Common Vector Tactics While I still seem to be a week behind, I'm going to sites on my own to find things of value so I can try to keep up. In my perusal of Mastodon, I found this, and thought it should be posted. Here are common vector attacks behind data breaches is the blog post, where Diva on Breaches takes us through 7 different items in her post. This is also in our show notes and will be read out for those who listen but do not read the blog on a regular. Thanks Devanand for continuing to share the knowledge we can share. We recently read one of her recent posts in a prior podcast. Knowledge is power! Our Topic: Acid Rain and Acid Pour Our blog post New Malware, AcidPour has a link to the Cybernews article. As usual, we'll take some of the paragraphs to aid in the discussion.If you just want the article without going to the blog, no problem. Russia unleashes dangerous new wiper is the article.

TSB podcast 183: An update on Pig Butchering
After a week off, we're back with another podcast. We hope you enjoy! Hello everyone, welcome to the Security Box, podcast 183. On this program, we're going to catch you up on the landscape from the last couple of weeks. We've also got an update on what's going on with our favorite topic called Pig Butchering. Of course we'll take your comments as well and of course those questions. Thanks so much for listening! Our topic: What's going on with Pig Butchering? Pig Butchering is not necessarily going anywhere, but there have been some studies and money recovered. The article US moves to recover $2.3 million from “pig butchers” on Binance is the latest article we've seen on the topic. Of course, we had a topic but seemed to have lost it, but that's what happens some times. This article will be taken apart to help the discussion and of course comments and questions are welcome. As a side note, we can probably tie this in to Phishing as a whole, as the deployment of the beginning of how this works is an email, text, or other platform of communication. What are your thoughts on that? We even talk about it as part of Throwback Saturdaynight for the 16th in our first segment.
