    Digital payment providers at great hacking risk, need upgraded security: Experts

    By:Economic Times8th December, 2016

    With more and more people logging into e-wallets or m-wallets for daily payments, the target for hackers has increased exponentially, experts warn, suggesting that upgraded security is the only way to safeguard millions of first-time users and small and medium businesses from losing their hard-earned money. The government's demonetisation drive and the resultant cash crunch have led to digital wallet firms witnessing an unprecedented rise in their usage and popularity -- with people using them for everything from buying groceries and vegetables to local travel. According to Vidit Baxi, Director (Technology) at the IT risk assessment and digital security services provider Lucideus, e-wallets are at greater risk than ever as users grow and hackers identify digital payment gateways as a lucrative opportunity. "That being said, let's understand that even the largest banks on the planet have been digitally hacked, so there is nothing like 100 per cent security. It's all about managing the risk and minimising it to whatever extent possible. It is clear that the benefits of digital payments far outweigh the risks but, at the same time, such risks have to be continuously monitored and managed," Baxi told IANS.

    After Rahul Gandhi, Now Congress Twitter Handle Hacked

    By:Zee News5th December, 2016

    A day after Rahul Gandhi’s hacked Twitter handle put out offensive and homophobic posts on Wednesday evening, the Congress party’s account has also been hacked and abusive tweets have been posted on Thursday morning. The matter of the Congress Vice-President’s hacked account was taken to cyber cell on Thursday. Over 200 congress accounts were suspended on Thursday and the leaders were asked to not use them for a few days, NDTV reported. The co-founder and CEO of Lucideus, Saket Modi, told The Quint about how the hacking could have been done. Modi said: The social media hack of both the accounts can be a result of any one of the following two possibilities: It can either be a potential backdoor(malware) being present on a computer system on which both the accounts might have been simultaneously accessed or this can be a long persistent and targeted attack - spear phishing in most cases on either the email account that was used to create the twitter handle or directly of the twitter account - on the political party. He added that he believed that there was more data in the hands of the hackers which they had not put out yet. He also said that it was Twitter and the owner of the account are responsible for the safety of the account and since only two accounts were hacked, so it might not have been a problem on Twitter’s end.

    As India goes digital, hacking targets multiply

    By:The Hindu5th December, 2016

    Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account was hacked and some expletives-laden tweets were posted. A day later, Congress Party’s official Twitter account got breached. “In either of the case I am certain there is more data in the hands of the hackers than just account access that might be released in due course of time,” said Saket Modi, co-founder of cybersecurity start-up, Lucideus Tech. At a time when an increasing number of Indians are going digital and doing transactions online, these hacking incidents expose the country's cybersecurity vulnerabilities. In India, there has been a surge of about 350 per cent of cybercrime cases registered under the Information Technology (IT) Act, 2000 from the year of 2011 to 2014, according to a joint study by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Mr. Modi of Lucideus said the hacking of the social media networks of Mr. Gandhi and Congress Party can be a potential backdoor malware being present on a computer system on which both the accounts might have been simultaneously accessed. He said this can also be a long persistent and targeted attack called 'spear phishing'. It is an e-mail spoofing fraud attempt that targets a specific organisation or individual. It seeks unauthorised access to confidential data.

    Congress slams govt over Twitter hack attacks, fears of server breach loom

    By:Hindustan Times1st December, 2016

    The Congress is livid. The party’s official Twitter account allegedly fell prey to hackers who posted offensive messages on Thursday morning, just 12 hours after vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s account faced a similar ordeal. But the bad news doesn’t end there. The hackers indicated the breach was much bigger and a cache of confidential internal party emails and correspondence might land up on a public platform such as Wikileaks soon. Sources said the server that hosted the Congress website and e-mail accounts was hacked, indicating confidential data had been compromised. “Coming up is a full dump of inc.in congress emails, stay tuned for Christmas special,” one of the tweets allegedly posted by the hackers via @INCIndia read. The offensive tweets were erased in a matter of minutes. Experts feel it is futile for the Opposition party to try and corner the government over the hacking of Twitter handles, even in countries with most advanced cyber protection laws, hackers still make a living. “A hack on Twitter cannot be blamed on the government’s cybersecurity laws as Twitter has its own set of encryption and protection measures which is uniform for all countries,” Saket Modi, co-founder and CEO of cybersecurity firm Lucideus, said.

    After Rahul , Congress party’s twitter handle hacked; police file FIR

    By:New Indian Express2nd December, 2016

    Legion shall prevail, justice shall strike!” and “Coming… to shred you…” sort of ominous tweets were pinned on @INCIndia, the Indian National Congress’ official twitter handle, just a day after Rahul Gandhi, the party vice president’s account was hacked with a slew of racist and homophobic obscenities. According to INC’s official twitter-handler-at-large, the hackers first cracked Rahul’s email ID and through it accessed his twitter handle and the party’s thereafter. If profanities were piled on Rahul’s handle, the hacker(s) lobbed threats at the INC. Surjewala added, the hacker of both the accounts could have used a “potential backdoor (malware) present on the computer system on which both the accounts might have been simultaneously accessed or it could be a long persistent and targeted attack — called, spear phishing”. Reiterating Lucideus CEO Saket Modi’s views, the Congress leader feared that either way “there could be more data in the hands of hackers than just account access that might be released in due course of time”.

    Cyber cops in touch with Congress after Rahul Gandhi's Twitter account is hacked

    By:ET Tech2nd December, 2016

    Top government agencies are investigating the hacking of Twitter accounts belonging to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s and his party, after abusive tweets and screenshots from the two accounts went viral on Wednesday. Even as the Computer Emergency Response Team (Cert), under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) is in touch with top Congress leadership and Twitter, the Congress late on Thursday deactivated around 200 Twitter accounts that had the ‘inc’ domain, as all of them were hacked. Most senior Congress leaders and party outfits have Twitter handles with ‘inc’ domain. It is not clear whether this is the work of the same entity. “It is not easy to nail a hacker in seamless internet today because there is a good chance I may be sitting with you in the same room and executing a hack on you, but can make it look like the request came from China or Russia,” said Saket Modi, CEO of cybersecurity firm Lucideus Tech Private Limited.

    Indian Android Smartphone users In India Too at Data Theft Risk: Experts

    By:Gizmodo24th November, 2016

    News that security firm Kryptowire identified a "backdoor" spyware in Android smartphones in the US which collected sensitive personal data and transmitted it to servers in China has shaken cybersecurity experts in India -- a country where one in five smartphones are of Chinese make. Jump-started by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Kryptowire last week revealed that these Android devices were available through major US-based online retailers like Amazon and BestBuy and included popular smartphones such as BLU R1 HD devices. The devices actively transmitted user and device information including text messages, contact lists, call history with full telephone numbers, and unique device identifiers to third-party servers in China without user-consent, Kryptowire claimed. According to Rahul Tyagi, Vice President (Training) at IT risk assessment and digital security services provider Lucideus, Indian users share the same threat as China continues to be a major exporter of smartphones. "Given the current market, there are a lot of new phone companies/models being launched every day with advanced features at a low price, most of them being manufactured in China -- which may put user-privacy at great risk," Tyagi told IANS. Owing to the competition, companies are trying to give the best hardware experience to consumers but what is lacking is proper security auditing in their custom-operating systems and firmware.

The devices actively transmitted user and device information including text messages, contact lists, call history with full telephone numbers, and unique device identifiers to third-party servers in China without user-consent, Kryptowire claimed. According to Rahul Tyagi, Vice President (Training) at IT risk assessment and digital security services provider Lucideus, Indian users share the same threat as China continues to be a major exporter of smartphones. "Given the current market, there are a lot of new phone companies/models being launched every day with advanced features at a low price, most of them being manufactured in China -- which may put user-privacy at great risk," Tyagi told IANS. Owing to the competition, companies are trying to give the best hardware experience to consumers but what is lacking is proper security auditing in their custom-operating systems and firmware.

    The thrill of saving India from cybercrime

    By:The Hindu20th November, 2016

    Saket Modi loves long flights. The 26-year-old hacker likes to do most of his reasoning while criss-crossing the world. It was on one such flight from the United States to India that the co-founder of cybersecurity start-up Lucideus Tech read about India's largest data security breaches. While surfing the in-flight Internet he came to know that the security of about 3.2 million debit cards had been compromised. “I was not surprised but I started thinking about how it would have happened. What was the ‘exploit’ used, how long was it there,” said Mr. Modi. Soon after reaching New Delhi, he received multiple requests from several banks and organisations to protect them from the hacking incident, which is just one of the thousands of cybercrimes that the country is facing. In India, there has been a surge of approximately 350 per cent of cybercrime cases registered under the Information Technology (IT) Act, 2000 from the year of 2011 to 2014, according to a joint study by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has also reported a surge in the number of incidents handled by it, with close to 50,000 security incidents in 2015, noted the Assocham-PwC joint study.

    Malware alert! Extortion now very much in digital world too

    By:Financial Express06th November, 2016

    The worrying bit is that a ransomware attack can affect anyone. Not just personal computers or laptops, smartphones, tablets, servers and wearable devices are all prone to it. This means that individuals and large-scale businesses are at equal risk. “If you have downloaded a pirated software from the Internet, you see only that on your computer. But there might be a ransomware in the background. It’s not necessary that it attacks as soon as you download it. It might take a couple of days… and one fine day, you will wake up to find all your data gone,” says Vidit Baxi, director, technology, Lucideus Tech, a New Delhi-based IT risk assessment and digital security services provider, which has also worked on government projects, the most recent of which was to supervise the end-to-end security of the Unified Payments Interface (a payment system that allows money transfer between any two bank accounts using smartphones).

    Major Indian bank debit cards hit by malware, banks play it cool

    By:CIO India21st October, 2016

    CIO India spoke to Vidit Baxi, director technology, Lucideus, a cyber security services company. Baxi observed, "It’s not all bad news for the industry, when it comes to taking measures to cyber security, the financial organizations today in India are very matured, especially the banks. You will see them proactively list security do’s and dont’s on their website.”
    Baxi looks at reports of banks sending alerts to their customers to change their ATM pins as a powerful move. “Though it is a reactive step, but if you look at it the other way, the cyber- security was strong enough to detect a possible fraud which made the bank take required measures like blocking the cards. It is a bold step to take for any bank, imagine the amount of business that might have been affected,” he said.

    Saket Modi, co-founder of cyber security firm Lucideus, suggests that instead of having just one debit card, consumers should keep at least 3-4 cards and use the one with the least balance while shopping outside. Mr. Modi recommends using the safe banking features that provide the option of generating virtual credit or debit cards with a set spending limit, valid only for one-time use. Alternatively, switch to the United Payments Interface, which is considered safer than debit cards.
