林日彥's 的頭像

《信報》專欄作家

由科技到政治的WannaCry

《信報》堅‧離地城:「一個WannaCry電腦病毒,搞到全世界人人提心吊膽,科技把人類帶往另一個境界,卻同時可以在頃刻之間,令人類手足無措。然後再有新聞報道指出,美國一些電腦網絡專家查出病毒來源和北韓一個政府旗下的黑客集團曾經使用的電腦病毒來源一致,雖然未能證實WannaCry黑客集團是否來自北韓政府,但卻肯定引起聯想。至於那邊廂受影響的俄羅斯則指出罪魁禍首是美國情報機關。一個電腦病毒卻令我在想其實人類是否有點作繭自縛。」我說。

「林日彥,人類不是作繭自縛,只是聰明反被聰明累,發明科技只是希望幫助人類生活變得更方便、更美好,只是有些人濫用了科技。不過事件亦告訴大家,不要完全依賴科技,否則隨時被『一鑊翹起』。」Fan回應。

人類過分依賴 作繭自縛

「Fan,真心說句,科技一日千里,已經令到我們的生活完全依賴科技,出門忘記帶手機,感覺比死更難受。先別說電腦病毒這種刻意的人為破壞行為,其實科技早已在不知不覺間破壞了一些人與人之間的關係。

「舉例,email誕生後,大家工作變得相當便利,但卻發現同事間的verbal communication變得愈來愈矜貴,有事要問坐在身旁的同事,卻竟然不是轉身親口問句,而是send email。當然有些人只send email是別有用心(辦公室政治伎倆大家明白),但更多是已經習慣了,因而忘卻了有些事情還是親口表達更好,結果很多人與人之間的誤會由此而起。」

Oracle databases at risk because of a leaked NSA hacking tool, researcher says

Chris Bing Apr 20, 2017 | CyberScoop

"The recent leak of NSA hacking tools designed to compromise SWIFT Service Alliance servers comes with a key to pry open thousands of Oracle databases around the globe, new research suggests.

While most of the hacking tools revealed April 14 by the group known as the Shadow Brokers target vulnerabilities in outdated versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems, the release also contained an implant and two scripts apparently engineered by the NSA to breach and exfiltrate data from Oracle databases. Those tools were part of an expansive U.S. espionage operation aimed at hacking into Middle Eastern SWIFT service bureaus.

.......
...........

Because the Shadow Broker’s release provides readers with the executable code for PASSFREELY in full, random hackers can now recycle and redeploy the tool, Suiche explained.

Suiche predicts that criminal hacking groups with an interest in targeting banks and other financial intuitions will likely adopt PASSFREELY in the future.

“The main beneficiary of this tool will probably be Larazus Group, as they have showed and demonstrated extensive and in-depth understanding of Oracle Database and SWIFT Messaging services,” Suiche said. “Developing this sort of capability would take a long time and a lot of resources if someone wanted to do it one their own … that’s what makes this so attractive to pick up.”

The Lazarus Group is an active, sophisticated hacking group believed to be associated with the North Korean government. ..........

Shadow Brokers tease more Windows exploits and cyberespionage data
 May 16, 2017
"........The group first appeared online in August and claimed that it had access to the arsenal of a cyberespionage group known in the security industry as the Equation, widely believed to be a hacking division of the NSA.

On Tuesday, following the WannaCry attacks, the Shadow Brokers posted a new message online in which they claim to have many more Equation exploits that haven’t been leaked yet. .........
........
According to the hackers, data that will be leaked monthly through the new subscription service could include exploits for web browsers, routers, mobile devices, and Windows 10, as well as data extracted by the Equation during its cyberespionage operations. The information is supposed to include data stolen from SWIFT providers and central banks and data from “Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or North Korean nukes and missile programs.”

What subscribers will do with these exploits and data will be up to them, the group said.
