According to the Cyberint the financial industry is the most targeted industry worldwide, accounting for more than one third of all targeted attacks, and the retail industry is the third most targeted worldwide, behind manufacturing in the Americas and government targets in APAC and EMEA.

Banking trojans top the most prevalent malware families observed during 2019, and the volume of attacks is increasing due to the sale of “As a Service” platforms allowing less sophisticated attackers access to more complex tools for as low as several US dollars a month.

MILWAUKEE – It seems the system worked fine until last week when Samantha Lamont said she returned home from work Tuesday and discovered the temperature inside her home was 90 degrees. She told WITI-TV she thought it was a glitch and reset the thermostat, but what followed was anything but a glitch.

“My heart was racing,” she said. “I felt so violated.”

The hacker reset the couple’s thermostat to 90 degrees and even spoke to them through their kitchen camera before playing vulgar music, they said.

Cisco ‘Knowingly’ Sold Hackable Video Surveillance System to U.S. Government

The Hacker News

Cisco ‘Knowingly’ Sold Hackable Video Surveillance System to U.S. Government | #TpromoCom #Hacker #VideoSurveillance #Legal | Cisco Systems has agreed to pay $8.6 million to settle a lawsuit that accused the company of knowingly selling video surveillance system containing severe security vulnerabilities to the U.S. federal and state government agencies.

The lawsuit began eight years ago, in the year 2011, when Cisco subcontractor turned whistleblower, James Glenn, accused Cisco of continue selling a video surveillance technology to federal agencies even after knowing that the software was vulnerable to multiple security flaws.

According to the court documents seen by The Hacker News, Glenn and one of his colleagues discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Cisco Video Surveillance Manager (VSM) suite in September 2008 and tried to report them to the company in October 2008. (click here)

Editor’s Note: For many years, I sought to warn security dealers of the risks of using specific brands recently named by the U.S. Government as being off limits to all federal applications. At the time, as the administrator with the CCTV Security Technicians Forum on Facebook, many members suggested that this only pertains to government use, which is correct, so they were going to continue selling those specific brands. My message to all dealers now as it was then, is that in the end analysis, if a CCTV system you sold and installed is hacked, and you knowingly sold it to the client, you could possibly be susceptible to legal action on the part of the client. –Al Colombo
