Das BSI in Freital wird darüber hinaus aber künftig auch Ausgangspunkt für eine enge Kooperation im Bereich der Cyberermittlungen werden. Sachsens Cybercrime Competence Center am Landeskriminalamt, wie auch andere Sicherheitsbehörden werden davon zusätzlich profitieren.“
The People’s Liberation Army Strategic Support Force (PLASSF or SSF ; Chinese: 中国人民解放军战略支援部队) is the cyber-, space-, and electronic-warfare service branch of China’s People’s Liberation Army. It was established in December 2015 as part of the first wave of the People’s Republic of China military reform.
Ebenso wie die Unterscheidung zwischen defensiven und offensiven Maßnahmen der digitalen Kriegführung ist die Unterscheidung zwischen militärischen und zivilen „Cyber-Fähigkeiten“ für die deutsche Staatsführung offenbar längst obsolet. So heißt es bereits in der „Cyber-Sicherheitsstrategie“ der Bundesregierung aus dem Jahr 2016: „Die Verteidigungsfähigkeiten der Bundeswehr im Cyber-Raum sind … wesentlicher Teil der Cyber-Sicherheitsarchitektur. Sowohl die inhaltliche Übereinstimmung bei der technischen Umsetzung von Schutzmaßnahmen als auch die Nutzung und Mitgestaltung von Strukturen, Prozessen und Meldewesen der Cyber-Abwehr … zeigen die enge Abhängigkeit.“
The Guardian says that it was warned earlier this year about efforts by a cybersecurity unit in Saudi Arabia to „hack“ its computer networks.
The British newspaper published an article on Wednesday that says it was alerted by a source in Riyadh that it was being targeted by the unit following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The sources stressed that the Saudi intelligence services have sought to obtain advanced spyware in order to trace the Kingdom’s citizens – both in the country and abroad – amidst increasing criticism of the Saudi royal family.
Saudi Arabia therefore reached out to the Israeli market and struck a deal worth $300m with representatives of Israeli firms, the sources said, adding that both sides met and reached the deal in UK capital London.
The New York Times, the US has increased the number of cyber attacks on Russia’s grid. Moreover, two administration officials had told the newspaper that Donald Trump had not been briefed on the attacks.
Pentagon officials have also described the “broad hesitation” to tell Trump about the details of the operations against Russia.
But in a public appearance on Tuesday, President Trump’s national security adviser, John R. Bolton, said the United States was now taking a broader view of potential digital targets as part of an effort “to say to Russia, or anybody else that’s engaged in cyberoperations against us, ‘You will pay a price.’”
Power grids have been a low-intensity battleground for years.
The U.S. intends to expand offensive operations in cyberspace to counter digital economic espionage and other commercial hacks, White House national security adviser John Bolton said Tuesday, while also dismissing talk of a split with President Trump on North Korea and other hot spots.
And then, by the afternoon, the fort’s Facebook page published a meme that says „Don’t Worry It’s Just A..“MILITARY EXERCISE.““
Saudi dissident Omar Abdulaziz, who lives in Canada, has filed a lawsuit against an Israeli technology company called the NSO Group accusing it of providing the Saudi government with the surveillance software to spy on him and his friends — including Jamal Khashoggi. The program, known as Pegasus, not only allows the monitoring of all communications from a phone — all texts, all emails, all phone calls — but can also hijack a mobile phone’s microphone and camera to turn it into a surveillance device.
Hacktivists are spreading booby-trapped copies of the New Zealand mass shooter’s Islamophobic rantings, in what is being described as an online „vigilante“ operation.
Security house Blue Hexagon claims it discovered a version of the killer’s manifesto doing the rounds online containing Windows malware that, when executed with the necessary privileges, reboots the system and leaves the user staring at an anti-racist message.
The Government has rejected a petition calling for Brexit to be stopped, which has gathered more than 5.75 million signatures.
The BBC spoke to three cyber-security experts about how likely it is that a number of the 3m signatures gathered so far are not genuine.
They all agreed that the petition’s email validation process would be a deterrent.
Before NSO helped the Saudi government track its adversaries outside the kingdom, and helped the Mexican government hunt drug kingpins, and earned hundreds of millions of dollars working for dozens of countries on six continents, the company consisted of two high school friends in northern Israel with one relatively mundane idea.
Using technology developed by graduates of Intelligence Unit 8200 — Israel’s equivalent of the N.S.A.— Shalev Hulio and Omri Lavie started a company in 2008 that allowed cellphone firms to gain remote access to their customers’ devices to perform maintenance.
Word spread to Western spy services, whose operatives spotted an opportunity.
Remainers and Leavers alike have been getting a little too excited about the Revoke Article 50 Petition. Yes, you can sign it as many times as you like with made up email addresses and whatever name and country you care to put in. Yes, there are videos online explaining in detail how to use bots to hijack Parliamentary petitions – exactly what happened with the second referendum petition immediately after the referendum. Is it actually going to stop Brexit? No, that will be MPs…
Over three million people have signed the petition to revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit. But are they all real?
In recent years, automated programs known as bots have come to be used for artificially inflating Instagram follower counts, mining bitcoin or swaying online polls.

The country’s 450 active cybersecurity companies raised a total of $1.19 billion last year, constituting a 47% increase since 2017 and a fourth consecutive record-breaking year of investments. Since 2014, the sector has witnessed a five-fold increase in investments.
Anna Soubry MP (pictured) said the couple “should not have been named in the media”, adding that a new law was “needed” to make it a criminal offence to name suspects before charge unless it is in the interests of justice.
The pair were pictured on the front pages of the Mail on Sunday, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Mirror, Sunday Express and Sunday People yesterday morning, as well as on numerous news websites.
“The way we were initially perceived was disgusting although those who knew us did not doubt us for a second.

A US indictment unsealed on Thursday in unison with a series of British statements accused Chinese hackers of obtaining unauthorised access to the computers of at least 45 entities, including commercial and defence technology companies and US government agencies such as Nasa and the US navy.
The minister noted that the drones switched to manual guidance upon encountering Russia’s electronic countermeasures, indicating that they were not controlled by Syrian forces, but a „technologically advanced country that has access to such tools; they cannot be made in the Syrian desert,“ Fomin was cited as saying.

(29.5.2018) The William Safire column, „You Are a Suspect,” was published in the Times in 2002—two years before Facebook was created. And Safire isn’t talking about social networks or digital advertising—he’s discussing Total Information Awareness, a US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) program that proposed mining vast amounts of Americans’ data to identify potential national security threats. The virtual grand database was to belong to the Department of Defense, which would use it to identify behavior patterns that would help to predict emerging terrorist threats.
(24.4.2018) Space electronic warfare Capt. Andrew „Ghost“ Harris and space weapons officer Capt. Ryan „Pippin“ Foster have an urgent task—to make sure the coming allied strike takes full advantage of U.S. satellites in orbit.
“For something of this scale, this is one of—if not the—first time we have had space guys directly involved in the planning, influencing that mission, and developing effects specifically designed to support its execution,” says Morgan. “I’ve been involved in the Air Force for 24 years and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
The issue had been dealt with by Russian experts, the commander said.
Syrian state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying a number of air defense missiles had been fired but no foreign attack had taken place.
Separately, a commander in the regional military alliance backing the government attributed the malfunction to „a joint electronic attack“ by Israel and the United States targeting the Syrian radar system.
Electronic warfare suppression, a decoy battle group in the Mediterranean and never-before-used stealth missiles were all part of the attack
