FBI Warned American Companies of Hacker Attacks

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has officially warned American companies that hackers increasingly use malware in order to launch destructive attacks in the country. The warning was issued following a devastating cyber attack at Sony Pictures Entertainment a few days ago. The FBI released a 5-page confidential flash warning to US businesses, disclosing some technical details about the malware used in the attack. Despite the fact that the agency didn’t name the victim, cybersecurity experts are sure the FBI was referring to the attack of the California-based unit of Sony Corp.

The FBI representatives pointed out that they routinely advise private industry of various online threat indicators observed during the course of their investigations. They say that such information is provided in order to help sysadmins protect against the persistent cyber criminals.

According to the FBI report, the malicious software overrides data on hard drives of the machines and can make them inoperable and even shut down networks. Security experts explain that the malware in question can overwrite a victim host’s master boot record and all data files. As a result, it can make it very difficult and costly, if possible at all, to recover the data with standard forensic methods.

It is known that cyber attackers have used similar malicious software to attack businesses in very destructive attacks in South Korea and the Middle East. However, the security experts claimed that if this software was indeed used on Sony, it would be considered as the first large-scale attack of such a type started against a business in the United States.

The FBI warning provides recommendations on how to respond to attacks and asks all victims to contact the Bureau if they identified similar malware.

Datashift avatarNow that is interesting, what does the MBR have to do with the data stored on the HD? Don't you think that the crappy operating system on any system cannot be overridden and the data can be saved? Sure you lose about an hour on the re-install and then about another 3 hours on the software install and then about another two hours on the network install. ANY REGULAR COMPUTER TECHNICIAN CAN DO THIS. Please stop scaring people and trying to up the bill. Malware? Before you reboot check your reg like a good admin and don't cause a fatal attack. Make sure you 0's and 1's are in the right spot. Can I have you job? Sony I'm tired of the gui update on my phone can you please fix the actual glitches with the wifi, mem retrieve and the mem crashes?

KingTubby avatarI am a computer engineer of over 30 years. Simple fact: any RESPONSIBLE business (or high profile one for that matter) would't use any type of microsoft software (hyper v inclusive) AT ALL. Especially where privacy and protection of sensitive information is paramount. They wouldn't use MAC either. (i myself use mac)... They would use UNIX (not linux, that's just watered down unix for home users) such as FREEBSD or something else. Nor would they allow any kind of software onto their servers or workstations that could cause ANY kind of vulnerability. Their main protection would be firewalls and networking setups on the HARDWARE LEVEL, none of this software junk.

I have worked on plenty of systems where everything is unix based, windows and mac won't even be allowed to connect to the network that they are on. Now for those who run any microsoft server OS from 2003 upwards always run the risk of infection. A proper server admin who knows what they are doing can keep it in check, even that by itself is a full time job now. I'm not saying unix is perfect, but it is the closest thing to it. The problem with microsoft servers & workstations is they require full time maintainance and their updates, (wether or not you like it mr gates) DO SLOW THEM DOWN, and they are too frequent.

I am not a fan of microsoft at all. I use OSX as it is derived from UNIX. It's not perfect, it's just personal preference for me. My reason for using it is because there has never been a single time, even with the best hardware money can buy, where i have installed ANY micro$oft OS perfectly. some little quirk has always gone wrong, every time. OSX / UNIX / even WARPOS in the old days: never an issue. People are so dependant on microsoft's junk because its the most widely used, and there's always the criminal element wanting to make a cheap buck by doing the wrong thing.

at the risk of writing a novel, i'll end it there... everyone has their point of view, there's my 2 cents worth.
