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

    By:BGR7th December, 2016

    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.

    By:Zee News5th December, 2016

    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.

    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. “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.

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”.

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.

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.
