Oz privacy comish says breaches could double this year

dhcp pump


The irony of this new " governing body is that its all after the fact,after all the information is slurped!.

Fines are required if they do not pass the regulatory standards and a A breach of standards

is required, if there were any for private companies who don't fit into the existing standards framework,which is really thousands of AU businesses and websites.

More emphasis is required in the pre-emptive policies of the infosec industry standards for AU and a Governance and Audit framework ( not SOX or COBIT -slight fail) for Australian Companies ,small and large who hold or present Internet data to the public.

As with vehicle manufacturing and AU regulation safety standards a new Governing Standard is required for all Internet hardware imported or manufactured in AU,there is none at present.

Imported routers as we know are riddled with issues ,even the best of them ( Cisco) but a look at all the others shows shellcode,dns and insecure wireless OOT Box along with other issues which pose a massive instant risk of data disclosure when powered on and a business network is connected.

Specific standards ( regulations)are required in the AU place for all SQL and DB's that are Internet facing ,there should be a minimum standard NOW ,with bi-yearly reviews or testing executed as is done for high risk vehicles such as trains,buses,and the trucking industry.

The DOD regulation standard should be a minimum regulation standard,with higher standards for data retention companies ,and those storing full profiles or information on persons ,such as the health Industry ,CPA's and the private company loan market.

BlackEnergy crimeware coursing through US control systems

most !,: cough industrial control systems have a hardware lock and physical lock on the processor ,if this is applied and the controlling code has safeguards then it near impossible to change the actual control system unless the cs parameters are modified.

As mentioned the gui or win interface is only that ,able to control and monitor ( hmi ,scada) of the actual plant which isnt controlled by windows ,ie : if the windows box goes down the system wont stop or change.

if the systems integrator has the code on the scada for the plc etc and doesnt lock the processors then that could be trouble if the PMI /win box is comprimised ,now who would do that ???.

Cough Up

IF they want/need this service why should the isp pay for it ?,the gov will have to pay .

This requirement is like another tax if passed onto the consumers,when we pay out enough


the ISP's have already estimated the cost which will grow each year !.

Cough Up for the extra work and equipment required!.

On top of this what form of security governance framework will exist to allow this ?, the costs just keep growing as each ISP will have to engage in a secrecy agreement .

Who the $ can guarantee the security of this data when transmitted through the existing internet ?.

This will cost a substantial amount ,have the governement budgetted for the $Billions this will cost ?

in the current budget for the agencies ,i bet you they havent .

They cannot even provide the roads,hospitals and education system for the people that have elected them !.

This concept of the ISP again storing and providing the data is hogwash and is wasting too much money on this when transmission interception for overseas routes is simpler,technology is already there ,3-5 major points from AUS plus satellite feeds to be monitored.

Lest We Forget !

Take a step back in time before the overwhelming surveillance we have now.

Reasons for surveillance increase .

1 - Massive import of "freedom" seeking persons from terrorist states ,or from breeding grounds for said terroristista,eventaully leading to a groundswell of "like minded " individuals emerging as what would have been termed in ww2 as sleepers,and even then categorised as a threat to the country.

Said persons dont seem tio like the peace and freedom and must create chaos or rebellion in their new country ,which they think they have the right to do ,well they dont !.

2 - Increase in terrorism events ,911,Bali , and recent.

Over-surveillance is the result of knee jerk reactions to past events unfortunately,and often miscalculated,over cooked and often are not as effective as a long term strategy, of educating the people as to the "why's".

If you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to worry about !.

It'll make you think.

PLS Fix It Redmond

As the OP mentioned most of the exploits are rehashed OLD ( 10 years +) ,yes the year 1985-2002.

Somewhat strange that MS hasnt heard of regression testing,and ffs normal release testing.

And due to the entwinement/entrapment of the OS with the stupid browser nobody uses anymore,

most of the bloated apps are affected by the exploits in a roll on affect.

For crying out loud the browser was the cause of most of the issues for the last 10 years ,remove it

or make it an add-on for those who need to use it :?.

Re: El Reg a bit slow


Must have the dirt first and then the tools first before you digg.

And what disclosure policy do you think they have ? ,its not like the public domain,and

its all after the fact by a lead time of 30 days at a minimum,if at all.

Much like the LTPT and the private keys previously lifted from the company that generated

and protected the keys,how many sites and secure areas do you think that affected ?,and

the question again is what was the disclosure period ?.

Encrypt compile :hash ; yes .

Proprietary Siemens DTE lab required to determine proprietary payload ,without source or decompile availability.

AV vendors will have a time de-mangling encrypted code w/o said keys,even with a rs485 sniffer

on some of the end points.

If the AV vendor can disassemble the code,they can find out the author ,now who wishes this to happen ?,nobody ,so AV vendor wont ,all they can do is look for the network signatures,ie payload .

MYSTERY programming language found in Duqu

dhcp pump

Most likely written and compiled on with the same proprietary platform that the siemens drive software is written,assembler derivative ,so that any other payloads which the av vendor,i doubt the av vendor knows what the payload is ,unless they have a lab full of siemens drives and controllers and the closed source code they are trying to work out .

Read proprietary compiler /;..and where did the authors get that from ? ,reeks of .

As with symantec the source is the key ,and if the av vendors have the source ,or they are playing dumb ?and have the source .....

Hidden Dragon: The Chinese cyber menace

I somewhat agree..

Agree +1,

Subnet blocking can be required if you are running a service on a port ,most spi firewalls are set to block.,not very useful for half open connections and scans that are usually not done via the interested parties actual position /source country.

As anon mentioned $ billion of business are carried out with legitiamate CN businesses,most of which are external countries with MF bases in the CN.

Either way its hard to prove that it actually eminated from their subnet,although dns A' records

show it to some CN uni etc .

Where dns poisoning has been used in the past and a LOT of dns records showed ownership from cn suubnets ,doesnt mean cn were carrying out the attacks.

To accurately determine that ip is attacking your system requires more investigation and other parties involvement outside of your subnet.

Attacks appearing to be from the uk can be made via others in any country and vis versa,whether botnets are used or not .

Public internet needs a revamp on the old arpanet,isp's need to allow people to configure their service for in traffic and out ,some have gone this way as it does save the isp data $ as you mentioned ,and also protects the end point customer .

Most decent ' corporate services also provide this form of sla .
