Today, Krebs on Security reported that publicity service PR Newswire was hacked in March 2013. But more interestingly, this hijacked data has surfaced on the same Internet servers where stolen Adobe Systems source code and customer data was recently found.
The location of this lifted PR Newswire data suggests that the same black hats may be behind both hacks. Brian Krebs confirmed the data (usernames and encrypted passwords) with PR Newswire, and the company will start contacting customers about password changes today. PR Newswire told Krebs its investigation into the data is still in progress, but early indications are that the breach affected customers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India in particular.
Krebs and collaborator Alex Holden, chief information security officer at Hold Security LLC, found no evidence of abuse with the stolen data at this time. However, the duo notes that PR Newswire's clientele could be potentially very lucrative targets for hackers to use to manipulate financial markets.
A pair of researchers have uncovered more than two dozen vulnerabilities in products used in critical infrastructure systems that would allow attackers to crash or hijack the servers controlling electric substations and water systems.
The vulnerabilities include some that would allow an attacker to crash or send a master server into an infinite loop, preventing operators from monitoring or controlling operations. Others would allow remote code-injection into a server, providing an opportunity for an attacker to open and close breakers at substations and cause power outages.
“Every substation is controlled by the master, which is controlled by the operator,” says researcher Chris Sistrunk who, along with Adam Crain, found vulnerabilities in the products of more than 20 vendors. “If you have control of the master, you have control of the whole system, and you can turn on and off power at will.”
