More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

#opPetrol did launch, but with such limited effect it must be judged another Anonymous fizzle. Other hacktivists—US-based TeamBerserk—attack Hong Kong's CITIC Telecom unit.

Denial-of-service attacks hit Boston's public transit system (via its Network Solutions host) and British lender Amigo. Morningstar suffers a data breach affecting 182,000 clients' information.

Venerable remote administration tool PoisonIvy improves its stealth by hiding in a legitimate application. In the criminal economy a subscription-based service supports DIY Bitcoin mining, even as underground boutiques increasingly accept payment in Bitcoins. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is found vulnerable to smishing. Puppet automation software is vulnerable to remote code execution.

This week's LinkedIn DNS issue turns out, as suspected, to be an error, not a hack.

Businesses, particularly their boards, are advised to take cyber crime seriously—a Naked Security opinion piece gives it good treatment. A Quartz essayist, seeking to place PRISM in context, thinks pervasive data collection and big data analytics mean privacy is irretrievably lost.

Others are less willing to surrender, as evidenced by more privacy and do-not-track products hitting the market. Some privacy tools, as Ars Technica notes, may actually pique governments' surveillance interest. Others call for a "Nuremberg Code"—informed consent rules—to govern big data.

The US Congress considers "Aaron's Law" modifications to CFFA, and a bill to foster FISA court declassification is also introduced. The Guardian releases more leaked PRISM documents. Senators accuse security investigation contractors of background investigation fraud as the Office of Personnel Management pleads an impossible investigatory workload.

Notes.

Today's issue includes events affecting Australia, Canada, China, European Union, Germany, Indonesia, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, United States..

Cyber Trends

Who needs the NSA? Your dishwasher is already watching every move you make (Quartz) In the aftermath of Edward Snowden's disclosures about alleged surveillance programs by the National Security Agency, it's tempting to undertake a wholesale rethink of your online behavior, get a burner phone and install new e-mail tools, or just cut the cord entirely—except even that may not keep away the gaze of surveilling parties. Just living in a modern, equipped home is enough to create multiple peepholes for the government, or even foreign hackers, to figure out what you're doing

Bid protest process cost effective way to promote private sector confidence, says Gordon (FierceGovernment) The benefits of bid protests outweigh costs because protests provide a low-cost way for disgruntled participants to air their complaints, former Office of Federal Procurement Policy Administrator Daniel Gordon says in a paper to be published this year in the Public Law Contract Journal

Microsoft's Bug Bounty Program and the Law of Unintended Consequences (Threatpost) The Microsoft bug bounty program has been nearly a decade in the making and it is clear from the shape and size of it that the company did not simply slap the program together in order to join the cool kids. Rather, Microsoft's security team spent years watching the way other programs work, seeing what incentives attract good researchers and looking for a system that made sense for Microsoft's specific goals. The result is a well thought-out reward system that likely will reward good research while making customers safer at the same time. But the program may also create some unintended consequences and ripples in the security world

Will SAIC Stock Rise From Its Impending Split?

Technologies, Techniques, and Standards

Data Classification Can Boost Risk Management (Dark Reading) The trouble is organizations must execute on classification and retention policies to gain benefits. The effectiveness of data classification and retention policies can have strong ripple effects across an organization's entire IT risk management framework. After all, how data is classified can determine what risk management priorities are placed on it and the less data that is retained long-term, the less volume the organization has to sift through to determine appropriate protection levels

Why Are We So Slow To Detect Data Breaches? (Dark Reading) Poor instrumenting of network sensors, bad SIEM tuning and lack of communication between security team members allows breaches more time to fester

Use of Tor and e-mail crypto could increase chances that NSA keeps your data (Ars Technica) When it comes to surveillance rules, some US people are more equal than others.

Visualization, predictive analytics top tools for cyber defenders (FierceBigData) Cyber criminals are launching more sophisticated attacks every day but thanks to big data tools, they can no longer operate undetected.

It's All about the Applications (SecurityWeek) In my previous SecurityWeek column, I wrote about Managing Security with the Business in Mind and discussed briefly the importance of taking an application-centric approach to security policy management. I'd like to drill down into that a bit more because critical applications fuel the business and oftentimes there is a disconnect between the business requirements and the security policy. Aligning the two will ultimately improve security (i.e. safely remove firewall rules no longer in use by decommissioned applications) and allow IT to keep up with the dynamic needs of the business (i.e. process changes much more quickly and enable faster service delivery). The problem is, it's not that simple

NIST guide aims to make industrial control systems more resilient (FierceGovIT) Industrial control systems, such as those used by utilities and manufacturing, are integrating new capabilities that promote connectivity and remote access, but also necessitate unique security solutions, says the National Institute of Standards and Technology in an updated special publication issued May 15

Crackdown On Leaks Has Chilling Effect (Miami Herald) Even before a former U.S. intelligence contractor exposed the secret collection of Americans phone records, the Obama administration was pressing a government-wide crackdown on security threats that requires federal employees to keep closer tabs on their co-workers and exhorts managers to punish those who fail to report their suspicions

CIO empowerment isn't just for department CIOs, says Szykman (FierceGovIT) Recent congressional testimony and White House oversight has further fueled the discussion around strengthening federal chief information officer authorities. While the focus has largely been on centralizing programs under the department CIOs, Commerce Department CIO Simon Szykman says greater authorities should be given to component CIOs as well

We Need a Nuremberg Code for Big Data (Slate) The world of social-engineering surveillance is growing rapidly. Recent revelations about the federal government's PRISM program have sparked widespread debate about the benefits and harms of state surveillance of Americans in the name of national security. But what about the surveillance we submit to in the service of more mundane activities, like improving children's vocabularies or increasing student engagement in the classroom? This growing world of social-engineering surveillance has garnered far less attention and controversy but poses significant challenges to the future of privacy
