Cyber security news of the day – 2024 May 31

Cyber security news by Alexandre Blanc Cyber

2024 Friday 31

Here is what you should be aware of today :

BBC Breach Puts 25K Pension Scheme Members at Risk

Though information such as dates of birth, email addresses, and home addresses were compromised, « the Beeb » assures individuals that financial information is still protected. The cloud leaks, as usual, can’t trust systems you don’t own and manage ! #cloud #clowd #cybersecurity

CISA warns of actively exploited Linux privilege elevation flaw

It’s linux patch time !The U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has added two vulnerabilities in its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog, including a Linux kernel privilege elevation flaw. (Oh by the way, the stupid cloud mostly runs on Linux, so you can just pray that they patch your workloads, otherwise, privilege escalation in shared hosting like public cloud, good luck ! !)

Snowflake compromised? Attackers exploit stolen credentials

Seems that the cloud is leaking and leaking and leaking again ! Have attackers compromised Snowflake or just their customers’ accounts and databases? Conflicting claims muddy the situation.

The linked article share recommendation for Snowflake users to try to reduce the impact of the incident, aside of only praying, as this is the only thing you can do when you use public cloud, and it won’t fix much ! LOL … The cloud is a JOKE !

Another link on this deeply corrupted cloud topic :

Mysterious Cyber Attack Took Down 600,000+ Routers in the U.S.

This is bad, while LinkedIn and Microsoft are busy blocking account from certified and verified security people like me, the real threat actors are taking down more than half a millions routers in the US ! (I’m a bit pissed, yes)

« More than 600,000 small office/home office (SOHO) routers are estimated to have been bricked and taken offline following a destructive cyber attack staged by unidentified cyber actors, disrupting users’ access to the internet. »

And that’s about it for now ! Thanks in advance for sharing, as I’m now the enemy No 1 on Linkedin :P Feel free to share the news yourself using the share buttons below ! Enjoy !

Alexandre Blanc Cyber Kicked out from Linkedin

Edit on 2024 June 8th, Saturday, after the involvement and support worldwide, and a pressure from an incredible amount of people, LinkedIn restored my account. They claimed I got banned because I shared a malicious link (this one : Owasp AI and Security Guide ). This is why they deleted me. And then, they claim that after verification, the link was finally not malicious.

As you can guess, it’s a power game, and they wanted to slap me for something they didn’t like. But the power of communities has been stronger. That’s my take. I can’t express how thankful I am for all the support. Love to you all. Will take a few days to get back on track fully.

Edit on Friday night, after finding a great article linked in the comment
(and here) , lately, as I started my own business, I also started to add many connections and sent a lot of requests. The linked article about LinkedIn account restriction explains that adding too many « unknown » people, will lead to this. So, it seems that looking to expand my network, actually killed my network.
Will edit the post if things move, but I think this is it. Too many connection requests sent. (about 30 I’d say)

So, hopefully you’ll learn from this, don’t fuck it up as I just did.

So I got this email, and got blocked on all my devices. I vanished from the platform, my cyber buddies told me they can’t find me anymore.

I obviously had verified ID, MFA, and all available option for security. At this point, when I try to login, I got the following message :

Which is interesting, because I don’t know what this is referring to, and this is not aligned with the email stating « fraudulent activity detected ». Well, I’m known to fight AGAINST fraud. So, that’s about it.

That’s the cloud, after all, I rant a lot about it, you own nothing, you control nothing, well, here is a plain example. No information, no way to know or recover.

I contacted support via the form 2 times, but nothing there. I’ll wait a bit, and then reach out to insiders.

Fun times ! This happened around noon on 2024 May 30th, so far no news. I guess lunch time :D
