Hacker Publishes Waves of Facebook Logins

Facebook Passwords LeakedA hacker who calls himself Hannibal has posted thousands of alleged login email addresses and passwords of Arab Facebook users.

Emails and passwords for the social network Facebook have been published on Pastebin. Hannibal claims he has more than 30 million credentials of Arab users that he will publish regularly.

The hacker backs Israel and said, “State of Israel, not to worry, you’re in the hands of the world’s best hacker that I am. I will continue to support the government of Israel will continue to attack the Arab countries.”

In addition to the Facebook details he claims that he has possession of 10 million bank accounts and four million credit card details, which he warns he will publish if Iran continues to threaten Israel.

The most recent post said, “Unfortunately today I received an email from Mohammad Reza Rahimi [an Iranian politician] who threatens that would raise most of his men to find me and kill me. I assure you Mr. Fool, you can keep looking as you want, you will not find me even if you have a staff of 1,000 people who search for and carry out search for information about me.”

A spokesman for Facebook said, “This does not represent a hack of Facebook or anyone’s Facebook profiles. We have spent time investigating the information and have determined less than a third of the credentials were valid and almost half weren’t associated with Facebook accounts.”

“Additionally, we have built robust internal systems that validate every single login to our site, regardless if the password is correct or not, to check for malicious activity. By analysing every single login to the site we have added a layer of security that protects our users from threats both known and unknown. Beyond our engineering teams that build tools to block malicious activity, we also have a dedicated enforcement team that seeks to identify those responsible for threats and works with our legal team to ensure appropriate consequences follow.”

BozoCrack – MD5 Password Hash Cracker

BozoCrack is a depressingly effective MD5 password hash cracker with almost zero CPU/GPU load. Instead of rainbow tables, dictionaries, or brute force, BozoCrack simply finds the plaintext password. Specifically, it googles the MD5 hash and hopes the plaintext appears somewhere on the first page of results.

It works way better than it ever should.

How?
Basic usage:

$ ruby bozocrack.rb my_md5_hashes.txt

The input file has no specified format. BozoCrack automatically picks up strings that look like MD5 hashes. A single line shouldn’t contain more than one hash.

Example with output:

$ ruby bozocrack.rb example.txt
Loaded 5 unique hashes

Why?
To show just how bad an idea it is to use plain MD5 as a password hashing mechanism. Honestly, if the passwords can be cracked with this software, there are no excuses.

EPPB – BlackBerry, iPhone Password Recovery Tool

EPPBElcomsoft Phone Password Breaker (EPPB) enables forensic access to password-protected backups for smartphones and portable devices based on RIM BlackBerry and Apple iOS platforms. The password recovery tool supports all Blackberry smartphones as well as Apple devices running iOS including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices of all generations released to date, including the latest iPhone 4 and iOS 4.3.

The new tool recovers the original plain-text passwords protecting encrypted backups for Apple and BlackBerry devices. The backups contain address books, call logs, SMS archives, calendars and other organizer data, camera snapshots, voice mail and email account settings, applications, Web browsing history and cache.

BlackBerry Password CrackerBut, there is a catch. The new feature requires Media Card encryption to be switched on and set to either “Security Password” or “Device Password” mode. If this condition is met, EPPB will be able to run password recovery against device security password. What is also important and rather exciting is that you don’t need the BlackBerry device itself. All that is needed is a media card that was used in that device. Actually, that only need one specific file from that media card, so yes, the recovery can be off-loaded and the password can be recovered offline.

Zeus For Android Steals One-Time Banking Passwords

Android ZeusResearchers have discovered a new variant of the insidious Zeus trojan that is designed to run on Google Android smartphones, security researchers have warned.

The malicious program is a new version of Zitmo, a mobile trojan application first discovered last year that stands for “Zeus in the mobile,” Derek Manky, a senior security strategist at network security firm Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs, told SCMagazineUS.com on Tuesday.

It is designed to steal mobile transaction authentication numbers (mTANs), or one-time passwords that some banks, mostly in Europe, send via SMS message to mobile users as an additional layer of security.

The malware poses as a legitimate banking security application called Rapport, which is made by web security firm Trusteer. Once installed, the bogus app intercepts all incoming SMS messages and forwards them to a remote server.

Mickey Boodaei, CEO of Trusteer, told SCMagazineUS.com on Tuesday that Zitmo’s masterminds leveraged his company’s name to gain users’ trust. The program spread for four to five days during late May and early June, but the servers supporting the operation were taken offline more than a month ago.

The Zitmo variant for Android worked in conjunction with Zeus version 2.1.0.10, Boodaei said. Once a user’s PC was infected with Zeus, the malware tried to trick them into downloading Zitmo on their smartphone.

The Zitmo family of malware has also previously targeted Symbian, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile phones, Boodaei said.

Zitmo is the first malicious mobile application designed to work in combination with a Windows trojan.

It is based on NiX Proxy Checker.

Features:

  • Basic Authorization & FORM support in both standard and HTTPS (SSL) mode
  • HTTP/SOCKS 4 and 5 proxy support
  • FORM auto-detection & Manual FORM input configuration.
  • It is multi-threaded
  • Wordlist shuffling via macros
  • Auto-removal of dead or unreliable proxy and when site protection mechanism blocks the proxy
  • Integrated proxy randomization to defeat certain protection mechanisms
  • With Success and Failure Keys results are 99% accurate
  • Advanced coding and timeout settings makes it outperform any other brute forcer
