Security: Firefox "Breach Alerts", Uber Crack, and Intel Back Doors

  • Firefox “Breach Alerts” Will Warn If You Visit A ‘Hacked’ Website
    One more thing is coming to add to the capabilities of the recently released Firefox 57 aka Firefox Quantum. Mozilla is working on a new feature for Firefox, dubbed Breach Alerts, which will warn users when they visit a website, whether it was hacked in the past or not.
  • GCHQ: change your passwords now even if Uber says it contained the breach
    Uber claims to have paid $100,000 to secure 57 million accounts exposed in a breach last year, but the UK's spy agency, GCHQ, suggests consumers don't place too much faith in Uber’s claim. The GCHQ's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) on Thursday published guidance for Uber users, reminding those affected by the firm’s just revealed 2016 breach they should take precautionary action even if their personal details may not have been compromised. The agency warned that Uber drivers and riders should “immediately change passwords” that were used for Uber.
  • Drive-By Phishing Scams Race Toward Uber Users
    Indeed, hardly any time elapsed after Uber came clean Tuesday about the year-old breach it had concealed before crack teams of social engineers unleashed appropriately themed phishing messages designed to bamboozle the masses (see Fast and Furious Data Breach Scandal Overtakes Uber).
  • EU authorities consider creating data breach justice league to tackle uber hack
    Multiple investigations prompted by Uber's admission that it concealed a hack could join together for one big mega-probe into the incident. An EU working group which has responsibility for data protection will decide next week whether to co-ordinate different investigations taking place in the UK, Italy, Austria, Poland and the Netherlands.
  • Intel Didn't Heed Security Experts Warnings About ME [Ed: Intel refused to speak about back doors until it became too mainstream a topic, then pretended it's a "bug"]
    For nearly eight years, the chip maker has been turning a deaf ear on security warnings about the wisdom of Intel Management Engine.
