Cybersecurity company VPN Overview has discovered a serious vulnerability in Sega’s European resources.
Research Company VPN Overview discovered SEGA keys in the Amazon Web Services public storage. The incident took place back in October, but it was only given publicity now.
Experts found that an incorrectly configured cloud storage basket could be used for hacker attacks on customers and employees of the European branch of Sega.
The landing pages of key projects of the company, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Bayonetta and Total War, as well as the root site of Sega.com, were at risk of hacking. Security specialists were able to run executable scripts at the addresses of these resources, which could have serious consequences.
The API key to the Mailchimp service, which was actually publicly available, provided researchers with a list of more than 250,000 email addresses of users, along with their associated IP addresses and passwords, which they managed to recover from hashes. The researchers argue that “an attacker could effectively spread the ransomware virus through a compromised email address and Sega cloud services.”
However, due to the fact that the first clues were in the possession of the researchers, the problem was quickly corrected. Otherwise, cybercriminals could steal personal data or use sites to distribute phishing programs.
Hacker Hacked Fast Company’s Apple News Account and Spread Racist Messages
An unknown hacker was able to access the business publication Fast Company’s Apple News account and sent out a series of obscene and racist messages via push notifications. Subscribers are the victims.
Fast Company confirmed the hack, and so did Apple. The incident is currently under investigation.
“Fast Company’s Apple News account was hacked Tuesday night. After that, two push notifications with obscene and racist content were sent with a minute interval. The messages are disgusting and do not match Fast Company content. We are investigating the incident and have also paused feed updates and closed FastCompany.com until we are confident the situation has been resolved.“, – noted in the publication.
Shortly before the shutdown, the hacker himself posted an entire article on the Fast Company website, where he described in detail how he managed to bypass the protection. It turned out that the accounts on the site were protected by the same password, this also applies to the account of the site administrator. Having gained access to them, the hacker was able to get to the authentication tokens and log in to Apple News.
At the same time, in addition to hooliganism, no financial losses or manipulations were recorded.
Young hacker who leaked GTA 6 material denies his guilt
The 17-year-old hacker, who was previously arrested in the UK on suspicion of hacking Rockstar Games and Uber, has pleaded not guilty. According to police, he appeared in court over the weekend, but refused to plead guilty to PC misuse. At the same time, he admitted that he violated the conditions of release on bail. Now he is being held in a juvenile detention center.
According to investigators, the 17-year-old is part of the Lapsus$ hacker group and is behind the recent leak of videos and other details of the $2 billion GTA 6 game.
Earlier, a hacker under the nickname teapotuberhacker published an archive with video and source code from an early version of GTA 6, which has already gone viral. Take-Two tried to stop the spread of the leak, but it was only partially successful.
The hacker also said that it was he who attacked the Uber computer system, gaining access to correspondence, email addresses, and so on.
At the moment, the investigation is ongoing, so it is not yet clear how this story will end.
Cloudflare introduces world’s first eSIM with better security than VPN
Cloudflare has introduced a new solution that may be suitable for smartphone and mobile Internet users. We are talking about an eSIM card called Zero Trust SIM. Its peculiarity is that it provides an increased level of security, reducing the risk of number substitution.
In technical terms, we are talking about the transfer of DNS requests through the Cloudflare gateway, which allows you to protect them from interception and spoofing. Also promised is a check of all intermediate nodes through which the device accesses the Internet.
According to Cloudflare CTO John Graham-Cumming, Zero Trust SIM technology can outperform VPNs and other security systems as it provides cell-level protection.
Zero Trust SIM will launch first in the US, where only a virtual card for iOS and Android will be available at first. When activated, it will bind to a specific device and allow you to protect it. Physical maps are also expected in the future.
The company is also launching Zero Trust for Mobile Operators, an affiliate program for telecom operators that will enable them to offer subscriptions to the services and tools of the Zero Trust platform. In addition, a similar project is expected for the Internet of Things.
