More than 100 millions stolen to Bangladesh's people

Internet is increasingly seeming to wild west. As a sample, the announcement of the Bangladesh finance Minister: 100 millions have been stolen from the account located in the USA Federal Reserve. We'll explain the information and also a new trojan for Android, considered the most dangerous by now, the CVE vulnerabilities database malfunction and the last "CIBER Elcano" edition.

According to the Bangladesh Central Bank, cybernetic thieves would have stolen Indian funds of the USA Federal Reserve. Experts have follow the money clue to Philippines. The Bangladesh government will denounce the USA government to recover the stolen money. By the way the Federal Reserve deny this robbery has happened. Like in the movies.

Dangerous trojan

What is also incredible is the last Android malware discovered. It's a malicious, powerful and the most advanced code seen until now, according to Kaspersky Lab. It installs itself as administrator, takes the total control and infects all the apps in the smartphone. It's distributed via malicious ads and it's designed to redirect financial transactions which use SMS.

CVE doesn't work

As we see, the "bad guys" work better and better while the "good guys" sometimes get it complicated: the famous database Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) failed recently. Some researchers have waited for 6 months to CVE assign a number to the fails discovered. A hacker group has started an alternative initiative: the DWF system (Distributed Weakness Filing).

Ciber Elcano

We finish recommending the read of the last "CIBER Elcano" edition, the magazine created in the Elcano Royal Institute, dedicated to cybersecurity and cyberwar. This time it highlights the interview to CaixaBank Information Security Director and the analysis of the 2016 Cyberdefense Sessions.
