This is fucking embarrassing.
Carders operating the BackOff point of sales malware are hacking IP cameras to make sure their targets are worth attacking, says researcher Rotem Kerner says. The research plugs a "critical" gap in a July disclosure by the US CERT, which warned the popular carder malware was being flung at businesses using remote desktop …
Attackers appeared to be located in India according to analysis of requests made to command and control servers which revealed a web browser clock set to GMT+0530, and a new unpacked BackOff malware sample confirmed to have been developed in the country.
I'm not sure what "web browser clock" refers to in this context, but if it's something which indicates the OS time zone or locale, then I'd think it would be prudent to spoof it. I do that as part of what I consider private browsing, but perhaps I'm not understanding the intended meaning here.
Well I Googled it and found nothing. Then I checked about:config in Firefox. Now I ran the EFF Panopticlick test. I'm getting nothing that uses the word clock. The only thing that I know which is browser related is an actual clock display on a desktop, and of course there are also plugins to display a clock right in some browsers. Both of those would require a screen shot as far as I know, so how would that tie into the article? A clock showing in the IP camera video would likely show the time in the store. If you actually know what the reference in the article is specifically talking about, I would appreciate you telling me what it is.
