    Krebs on Security
    Earlier this month I wrote about Antidetect, a commercial tool designed to help thieves evade fraud detection schemes employed by many e-commerce companies. That piece walked readers through a sales video produced by the author of Antidetect showing the software being used to buy products online with stolen credit cards. Today, we'll take a closer look at clues to a possible real-life identity of this tool's creator.
  • Tax Fraud Advice, Straight from the Scammers

    Krebs on Security
    Some of the most frank and useful information about how to fight fraud comes directly from the mouths of the crooks themselves. Online cybercrime forums play a critical role here, allowing thieves to compare notes about how to evade new security roadblocks and steer clear of fraud tripwires. Few topics so reliably generate discussion on crime forums around this time of year as tax return fraud, as we'll see in the conversations highlighted in this post.

  • OpenSSL Patch to Plug Severe Security Holes

    Krebs on Security
    The world is about to get another reminder about just how much of the Internet runs on technology maintained by a handful of coders working on a shoestring budget. OpenSSL -- the software used by thousands of companies to encrypt online communications -- is set to get a security makeover this week: The OpenSSL Software Foundation said it plans to release new versions of its code to fix a number of security weaknesses, including some classified as "high" severity.
  • Dark Web’s ‘Evolution Market’ Vanishes

    Krebs on Security
    The Evolution Market, an online black market that sells everything contraband -- from marijuana, heroin and ecstasy to stolen identities and malicious hacking services -- appears to have vanished in the last 24 hours with little warning. Much to the chagrin of countless merchants hawking their wares in the underground market, the curators of the project have reportedly absconded with the community's bitcoins -- a stash that some Evolution merchants reckon is worth more than USD $12 million.

    Premera Blue Cross, a major provider of health care services, disclosed today that an intrusion into its network may have resulted in the breach of financial and medical records of 11 million customers. Although the company isn't saying so just yet, there are independent indicators that this intrusion is once again the work of state-sponsored espionage groups based in China.

    Krebs on Security
    If an ATM you'd like to use is enclosed in a vestibule that requires a card swipe at the door, it might be a good idea to go find another ATM, or at least use something other than a payment card to gain entry. Thieves frequently add skimmers to these key card locks and then hide cameras above or beside such ATMs, allowing them to steal your PIN and card data without ever actually tampering with the cash machine itself.

    Krebs on Security
    As a greater number of banks in the United States shift to issuing more secure credit and debit cards with embedded chip technology, fraudsters are going to direct more of their attacks against online merchants. No surprise, then, that thieves increasingly are turning to an emerging set of software tools to help them evade fraud detection schemes employed by many e-commerce companies.
