WiFi breach makes devices vulnerable to hacks, but there is a solution

Much to everyone’s concern, there have been discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs), notes krackattacks.com.

The “Krack” attack works by exploiting the “handshake” that a WiFi network and a device give to each other when the latter wants to join. Usually, the two decide on an encryption key for all future traffic, meaning that each device will only be able to read data if it has that key.

“Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected,” wrote security researcher Mathy Vanhoef, whose work was noted by the US government.

Qatar blocks VoIP apps such as WhatsApp and Skype; here’s how to access them

If you are traveling to Qatar these days or maybe are a resident who wishes to communicate more easily with his/her business partners or remote family, recent news points out to a new block on standard Voice over IP (VoIP) apps, such as Skype, Facetime, Duo, Viber, and WhatsApp.

Legally speaking, there are no laws or rules that prohibit VoIP services in Qatar, unlike in the UAE for example. However, it appears that according to the website of Qatar’s Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA), no person or business can sell VoIP calls or services without a license. And currently, only Ooredoo and Vodafone, Qatar’s sole two ISPs, are licensed to do this.

Remote malware – hackers’ newest trend in ATM attacks

Trend Micro (a top cyber security software solutions company) along with Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) have recently released a whitepaper explaining how new types of ATM thefts have started to emerge. These are happening particularly because many ATM networks don’t use updated software, thus don’t receive the latest security updates, which makes them extremely vulnerable when faced with digital frauds.

Hackers initiate the attack from the ATM network

Apparently, the new scheme no longer relies on cyber criminals physically standing in front of an ATM and using skimming devices, but attacking the ATM from inside, through their network. One of the easiest ways to infiltrate the ATM network is by sending phishing e-mails to bank employees; once they introduce a malicious code into the e-mail system, they capture valuable information about the employees’ daily tasks and they can also trace vulnerabilities of the ATM network.

The next and final step is to install malware on the ATM server. Mainly, the hackers use a code that generates a secret-key for each session. When a bank customer uses the same key, the code allows the hacker to empty the ATM.

How to save money with CyberGhost VPN and get the best online deals

Prices vary depending on many factors, from the time of year, device you use to make your purchase to the location you’re browsing from. This is valid for airline ticketing companies, hotel booking websites, car rental services, streaming services, games and so on.

For instance, when it comes to airline tickets, time-wise, the biggest fares can be found when children are off school. Also, the more we look for tickets to a certain destination, the more will that price increase, as it will show growing interest on our behalf.

Bypass the price steering strategy used by e-commerce websites

E-commerce websites also use a technique called “price steering”. Thus, PC users will get a different price from those using iOS devices. For example, Travelocity offered an unadvertised $15 discount for people using Apple’s iOS operating system. The OS we use can be easily identified by webmasters via the fingerprints our browsers leave.

Furthermore, fares also vary depending on location. This can be easily checked if you activate CyberGhost VPN and go to a ticketing website such as skyscanner.net.

Upon looking for tickets from the UK to the US, we got a staggering difference of 91.44 GBP when we looked for tickets from Romania, with a local IP, vs. the UK, with an IP generated by CyberGhost.
