Hi guys! I'm new on this forum and i'm going to write about hacking activity. And today i'd like to begin with Palestinian hackers 'Fsecurityteam'. In late December, 2017 this team declared cyberwar on Israeli government websites. Hackers announced that they downloaded 10,000+ Emails and passwords of Israel ministry of defense personnel.

We are aware about #OpIsrael and this is the right time to say that the Israel ministry of defense have been hacked. (http://www.mod.gov.il) we have downloaded 10,000+ Emails and passwords of Israel ministry of defense personnel. Data will soon be released. ~ #FSecurity

Now hackers continue to deface Israeli government websites:

Italian hacking organisation CPY has announced that it has cracked Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which means that people with pirated copies of the game will now be able to bypass its various DRM protections. The announcement was made on the CrackWatch subreddit, where Assassin’s Creed Origins has featured heavily, following Ubisoft’s decision to shroud the game with an unusually high number of anti-piracy protection measures. Namely Denuvo 4.8, VMProtect and Ubisoft’s built-in UPlay protection.

A bot Smominru which infected 500,000 computers has earned the hackers responsible over $3m from mining cryptocurrency. According to different sources  Smominru’s operators had mined approximately 8,900 coins – worth somewhere between $2.8m and $3.6m. This means the operators were mining 24 Monero coins every day, averaging at $8,500 a week. Smominru uses an exploit code which was developed by America’s National Security Agency. The code, dubbed ‘EternalBlue’, was published online by the Shadow Brokers hackers back in April 2017. Although the bot can use other techniques, EternalBlue appears to be the fallback option for spreading machine-to-machine across business networks or when other infection techniques fail.

Hackers defaced Brazilian Teresina town prefecture portal. This portal contains sites of the Municipal Secretary of Education, the Municipal Secretariat of Environment, the Municipal Department of Economic Development and the Municipal Transit Authority. The portal was targeted by criminals on Saturday night.  On the homepage you could see a message from the group responsible for the invasion. "Starting 2018, the firm will come back," was the message . According to officials, the invasion was detected immediately and the group did not have access to sensitive data or information from the PMT.

Russian white hacker Volodymyr Pikhur has presented and exploit of the PS4’s Rest mode a couple days ago at the Recon Brussels hacking conference. Volodymyr could hit PS4’s in a Rest mode using vulnerability in sys_kldload. There is probably enough in the presentation for people to take this information some step further. According to Volodymyr: 'The custom Southbridge silicon, responsive for background downloads while main SoC is off, didn’t help to secure Playstation 4. We explain how a chain of exploits combined with hardware attacks will allow code to run in the context of the secure bootloader, extract private keys, and sign a custom kernel'.

According to cybersecurity firm Netlab360 hackers have infected thousands of Android phones and smart TVs, turning the devices into miners r cryptocurrency Monero. The attack affected 7,000 devices in China, which were hacked into a network that harnessed the processing power of the connected devices to mine, or digitally create, the Monero cryptocurrency. Netlab360 said the attack took advantage of an open port, a part of the operating system that allows a device to communicate with the internet. Hackers searched for devices connected through port 5555, which helped them find unsecured Android phones and TVs. They then infected them with malicious software, known as a worm, that looked for more devices to infect.

Today American sources announced that allegedly Russian hackers from Fancy Bear team hunt US hi-tech secrets. An Associated Press investigation has found that criminals pursuing secrets of military drones and other sensitive US defense technology tricked key contract workers into exposing their email to theft. What ultimately may have been stolen is uncertain. But the hackers clearly exploited a national vulnerability in cybersecurity: poorly protected email and barely any direct notification to victims. Fancy Bear went after at least 87 people working on drones, missiles, rockets, stealth fighter jets, cloud-computing platforms or other sensitive activities. The AP analysis indicates that as many as 40 percent of them clicked on the hackers' phishing links.

Fancy Bear hacking group published a report on its website accusing Canadian national sports organizations of conspiring against Russian athletes at the behest of the country’s government. The report, called "Canada uses every trick in the book to own the podium," notes that Canada launched the Own the Podium program in 2005 after the country's poor performance in the first two Olympic Games the country hosted. The Canadian Olympic Committee, which funds the program along with the government, according to Fancy Bears, pledged to make Canada the top medal-winning nation at the 2010 Games in Vancouver. That mission was accomplished, but Canada once again failed to crack the top three of the medal count at the London 2012 Games, in Sochi in 2014 and in Rio in 2016.

According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap News, servers belonging to Olympic organizers were hacked during this year's Feb. 9 opening ceremony. As a result, the TVs at the main press center are said to have malfunctioned. What's more, in response to the attack, organizers briefly shut down their own servers — temporarily knocking the Pyeongchang 2018 website offline in the process. At present, not much is known about the individual or individuals behind the attack. However, that the Olympics and related organizations are a prime target for hackers is nothing new.

The Information Commissioner's Office took down its website after a warning that hackers were taking control of visitors' computers to mine cryptocurrency. Security researcher Scott Helme said more than 4,000 websites, including many government ones, were affected. He said the affected code had now been disabled and visitors were no longer at risk.
