Nonghyup Computer Error Caused by North Korea

first_img By Kim Tae Hong – 2011.05.02 3:47pm Nonghyup Computer Error Caused by North Korea News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China AvatarKim Tae Hong The South Korean Supreme Prosecutors’ Office has provisionally concluded that North Korea is behind the April 12 incident in which the computer system of Nonghyup, the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation, was temporarily paralyzed, and it has announced that it will release the official results of its investigation tomorrow. According to the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office, through its investigation, the Seoul Central Prosecutors’ Office has reached the provisional conclusion that the Nonghyup system error was caused by a North Korean cyber terrorism group, which mobilized highly-trained professional hackers. The investigation team confirmed that the structures and performance properties of the malignant codes used in the attack are similar to those used in the North Korean DDoS attacks on July 7, 2009, and March 4 of this year. The similarity was discovered during an analysis of the malignant program that deleted the Nonghyup server’s OS system. Additionally, the investigation revealed that some of the China-based IP addresses used in the attack correspond significantly to the IP addresses used in the previous DDoS attacks. The Supreme Prosecutors’ Office stated that the laptop used in the attack to delete the Nonghyup OS system was utilized as a “Zombie PC.” It was also reported that the two previous North Korean DDoS attacks were initiated from China-based IP addresses obtained by North Korea’s Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications.

Lenexa completes extension of Ridgeview Road between Prairie Star Parkway and K-10 Highway

first_imgLenexa has completed construction of Ridgeview Road to connect Prairie Star Parkway to K-10 Highway.The two-year design-build project included construction of a four-lane arterial roadway with curb and gutter, asphalt surfacing, storm drainage, traffic signal installation, intersection improvements, and the addition of a bridge across a Little Mill Creek tributary.Ridgeview opened to traffic on Thursday. Construction began in March 2018.Other portions of the project included construction of the following:99th Street from Ridgeview Road to Britton Street98th Street east of Ridgeview to MeritexA new access road to the Little Mill Creek TrailheadThe project cost an estimated $23.1 million, $6 million less than the city’s budget for it. City Manager Beccy Yocham said the design-build method saved the city money, facilitated efficiency and allowed the project team to “bring a lot of creativity to how to accomplish it in the best way possible,” especially on terrain that can be challenging to develop.The city also repurposed the mine tailings (leftover material from mining operations) from the old limestone quarry in the area, as fill for the project. Ben Clark, project manager, said this saved on construction costs and also remediated a blight.The project was originally slated for November 2019 completion but the wet spring and summer, coupled with early freezing temperatures in the fall, slowed construction. As with other roadwork projects, completing portions of the project was weather dependent and required warmer temperatures, such as asphalt surfacing and pavement markings.Yocham said the project is a “big piece” of the city’s transportation plan.“It opens up a rather large portion of our community for development,” Yocham said. “It’s an area that is really not served by roads today and without this roadway, would remain undevelopable. So we’re really excited to open up this area of our community because we’re really running out of developable land in a lot of portions of the community. This will be a big opportunity.”Four private developments are underway in the area, including:Jayhawk Ridge — Five-story residential development with 151 multi-family units on about 22 acres at the southeast corner of Ridgeview Road and Prairie Star Parkway. Other proposed uses include a three-story climate controlled storage building and retail and restaurant spaces.Viracor — Commercial development with a single, 109,000 square foot building for office, laboratory and warehouse space, with room for expansion.Meritex Lenexa Executive Park — First phase of surface development above the Meritex underground facility, located on about 18 acres and includes two buildings of 120,000 square feet each, for office, manufacturing, storage, warehousing, distribution or logistical uses.Ten Ridge — Commercial development with eight buildings for restaurants, a convenience store, a hotel, and retail or service uses, on about 14 acres with more than 45,000 square feet of building area.last_img read more

Another iPhone Vulnerability: Access iOS Backups Data with iPhone Password Breaker (Updated)

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#enterprise#mobile#news#Products 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… klint finleycenter_img Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Russian computer forensics software company ElcomSoft offers a product called iPhone Password Breaker that enables uses to access backup data from iOS devices. Today the company announced an update to the software that enables users to crack iOS 4 keychains – which may include e-mail and other passwords – without altering the phone’s content. ElcomSoft claims to be the first company to be able to crack keychain passwords. According to the company’s press release, “Prior to the release of the updated iPhone Password Breaker, the keychains were considered impossible to obtain.”iOS 3 devices used hardware encryption unique to each individual device to encrypt keychains, even when the keychains were exported to an external device. Apparently, this is not the case in iOS4. The keychains can be unlocked with only the backup password, which iPhone Password Breaker can recover. If an online backup has not been performed, the keychains aren’t accessible.Enterprises using iPhones may wish to avoid the use of offline backups until Apple fixes the issue.iPhone Password Breaker uses ATI and NVIDIA video acceleration hardware to recover backup passwords faster than traditional CPU-only approaches. ElcomSoft uses the same technology in its other products for recovering passwords from a variety of software, but does not offer any other products specifically designed for recovering smart phone passwords. According to ElcomSoft, the company’s tools are used by most of the Fortune 500, various branches of the military and many governments.Update: ElcomSoft CEO Vladimir Katalov wrote us to say:To be honest, I would not call that a “vulnerability”. If Apple wants to have an ability to restore from backup to another/new device, there is no solution, i.e. keychain cannot be encrypted based on hardware keys anymore. So we have to choose between security and usability, as always 🙂 The only recommendation is to select long and complex passwords to backups.last_img read more

first_imgChelsea manager Lampard announces Jorginho as vice-captainby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea manager Frank Lampard has announced Jorginho is the club’s vice-captain.Last season Gary Cahill was selected as club captain whenever he was on the pitch by Maurizio Sarri, with Cesar Azpilicueta named as vice-captain – but the Spaniard has now become the club captain.Speaking ahead of the game against Southampton on Sunday, Lampard said: “Yes, Jorginho is vice-captain as it stands. [Azpilicueta] is the captain and that was clear at the start of the season and I think his professionalism and career here speaks for itself. “Jorginho, I keep talking about him, is a character and a driver. It is very evident to see on the pitch. That’s the situation as it stands.” While the 27-year-old is not fluent in English, he has been boosting his language skills in a bid to improve his standing as a leader. Lampard says he believes Jorginho is “a character and a driver” on and off the pitch.”It is obviously important, we always try here to push that along as soon as players come in because communication is key on and off the pitch,” Lampard said. “He crosses the borders as it is easy when you come in sometimes to stay within groups of nationalities. Jorginho doesn’t. He is a driver on and off the pitch.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
