Apple's Mac is Open Source Now

Apple's Mac is Open Source Now
Now everyone one turning to Open Source, as earlier Microsoft have announced that it is bringing Linux to Windows 10 by adding Bash Shell for porting SQL Server.

Here's again competition going and Apple won't going behind it. Apple announced open sourcing its Swift programming language last year. Now it has shocked the world by announcing that it is going to open source its flagship Mac OS X operating system.

Speaking at Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), on April 1st, Apple CEO Tim Cook said:
At Apple, we have always valued Open Source. We used BSD Kernel without even using BSD license. That was the first step towards Open Source. With Swift going Open Source, it is time to take the next big step and open source OS X. This will ensure our position as the leader of Open Source innovation.
The Free and Open Source version of OS X will be called FOSX.

Tim Cook further added that the OS X always meant Open Source X and the new F in FOSX stands for Free as in ‘weekly FREE App on Apple Store’. He also said that open source version of OS X will be fully compatible with Apple hardware. and if you buy a MacBook or iMac, it will come free with it.

Warning! First iOS malware found

Warning! First iOS malware found
Its been seen that iOS device is much effective as compared to Android regarding security issue. But now iOS device is also in danger.

Security company Palo Alto Networks announcedit found a Trojan that exploits flaws in Apple’s DRM without needing to abuse enterprise certificates, and they’re calling it “AceDeceiver.” Currently, AceDeceiver only activates when the device’s geotag is in China.

The process for how the malware works is a little complicated. According to Palo Alto Networks, AceDeceiver uses a mechanism called FairPlayMan-in-the-Middle, where attackers purchase apps and save the authorization code needed for it to work on an iOS device. People who download the client AiSiHelper, a program that mimics iTunes, will now be in possession of an infected computer. When they plug in their iOS device, attackers can send an authorization code to trick a victim’s device to make it believe it purchased the app, and then it will download it.

Once the app has been downloaded on a victim’s phone, it will prompt them for their Apple ID and password, which the attacker's then have access to.

According to Palo Alto Networks, this method has been used to pirate apps before, and this is the first time FairPlay MITM has been used maliciously. It also said the method is pretty simplistic, and is likely to be copied by other attackers. AceDeceiver could also be easily changed to work in regions besides China, although the security company said its region-locked activation makes it harder to be discovered by Apple or security firms.

Palo Alto Networks said that it notified Apple about AceDeceiver in late February and the AceDeceiver apps were promptly removed from the App Store.

Team GhostShell founder came with his Identity

Team GhostShell founder came with his Identity
Hackers group, hacking FBI, Pentagon, security
World's most nitrous hackers group Team GhostShell - which are behind some major cyber attacks including attacks on the FBI, NASA and the Pentagon as well as a leak that saw 2.5 million Russian “government, educational, academic, political and law enforcement” accounts compromised, now came forward and gives its own identity.

GhostShell was most active in 2012, penetrating the aforementioned hacks on US and Russian intelligence agencies, but the silence that came in the three years between their last public attack and the subsequent return wasn’t quite the death of the group that many thought it would be.

G Razwan Eugen, was the man behind the Team GhostShell. Eugen came forward with a generic email address named White Fox that claimed to be the leader of the infamous hacker collective.

He contacted to TWN security writer Bryan Clark, and Clark joined some other security journalist of wired, telegraph on the discussions. 
Without wasting a time all started discussions and verifying the claim (hacker). Verifying hackers is and always has been a tricky proposition. While it’s simple to verify that this person is a member of GhostShell, tying his true identity to that of a hacker pseudonym is infinitely more difficult.
Hackers, after all, are notoriously careful about keeping the two identities separate — OpSec mistakes in this crucial step are generally what lead to arrest.

To prove the true identity, he wrote story on mail (check below image), and also provide couple of account login screenshots like Twitter and Pastebin.

Group Pastebin account

Official Twitter account

Twitter account was used by the official GhostShell Twitter account (@TeamGhostBin) to disseminate leaked information before its suspension.

As this is not enough to prove the true identity, hence we can't relay on this.
Eugen told Bryan-
“I just want to own up to my actions, face them head on and hope for the best. What I really want is to continue being part of this industry. Cybersecurity is something that I enjoy to the fullest even with all the drama that it brings and legal troubles.
In return I hope other hackers and hacktivists take inspiration from this example and try to better themselves. Just because you’ve explored parts of the internet and protested about things that were important to you doesn’t mean you should be afraid and constantly paranoid of the people around you.”

The Pentagon Wants You to Hack It
Hacking Pentagon system, Pentagon system hacked
US Defense team know as Defense Digital Service(DDS), which was established last year to bring US technology experts into the military, initiate the competition is called ‘Hack the Pentagon’, where they invites security experts and hackers to hack the Pentagon system.

The Pentagon has announced that it’s going to welcome outside hackers to help identify vulnerabilities in US Defense Department websites.

Currently US Defense Department has used internal “red teams” to test its networks but it hopes that by calling on external hackers, it will be able to deliver more comprehensive solutions.

Mean while the Pentagon hasn’t revealed any details of how the competition will work, it has said that it expects thousands of qualified applicants to get involved. There is also the possibility that it will involve a financial reward.

But to get into the competition is also not easy, as hackers have submit there background expertise to get into it.
Given that the DDS wants to bring more technology experts into the US military, it’s not out of the question that the winning hackers may end up with a change in career by the end of the project as well.

Know what Security Scanning of 396 Open Source Web application says: Infographic

Know what Security Scanning of 396 Open Source Web application says: Infographic
According to the latest reports of NetSparker , where they mentioned that since 2011 they had scanned 396 Open Source Web Applications with there automatic Web Application Vulnerability Scanner. In the vulnerability scanning they identified 269 issues and released 114 zero-day advisories. On this test conducted, only 30% of the open source web applications we scanned had some sort of direct impact vulnerability.

Top Most Vulnerabilities are:
Out of the 269 vulnerabilities the Netsparker web vulnerability scanners identified:
180 were Cross-site Scripting vulnerabilities. These include reflected, stored,DOM Based XSS and XSS via RFI.

55 were SQL Injection vulnerabilities. These also include the Boolean and Blind (Time Based) SQL Injections.

16 were File Inclusion vulnerabilities, including both remote and local file inclusions.

The rest of the vulnerability types are CSRF, Remote Command Execution, Command Injection, Open Redirection, HTTP Header Injection (web server software issue) and Frame injection.

Security test of Web Applications
Again XSS and SQLi are on top
Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities amount to 67% of all the identified vulnerabilities. SQL Injection vulnerabilities amount to 20% of the vulnerabilities. Together, these two vulnerability types amount to 87% of all the identified vulnerabilities.

Cross-site scripting and SQL Injection vulnerabilities have been included in the OWASP Top 10 since the project started, mainly because they are very easy to find and also very easy to exploit. And yet, even after years of raising awareness about these vulnerabilities, the majority of the web applications we use are vulnerable to these type of vulnerabilities.
