Clusit warns: dangerous escalation of cyber attacks all over the world!

cybercrime

In the newest 2018 report of Clusit, the Italian Association dealing with information security, it appears a really worrying state of affairs: between 2011 and 2017 have been occurred almost 7,000 serious cyber attacks all over the world, 1,100 of which only in the past year. Furthermore, also in 2017, we have seen an intensification of cyber attacks that we can define as important from a qualitative point of view, so much to push rapporteurs into asserting that “the 2017 has been the year of Malware triumph as well as of those industrialized attacks realized on a planetary scale against multiple targets “.

The attacks against companies, institutions, or people in general, have suddenly jumped from 11% of 2016 to 28% of 2017, totally about 240% more than those ones occurred in 2011, the first year of Clusit’s studies. Even Italy, usually considered at a low risk of cyber hacking, has risen to the headlines for hacking incidents, like the attack made on Foreign Ministry, the one that hit the Department for Public Administration, the malware phishing which involved over 200thousand people or the theft of almost 200million cryptocurrencies from an Italian Exchange.

In general, the main victims of the mentioned cyber attacks have been banks, financial institutions, health, education, hardware/software industry and governments, in this latter case straddling the American and French presidential elections. About economic impact the global costs generated by cybercrime have gone indeed from 100billion dollars of 2011 to over 500billion of 2017. So what about the types of viral attacks? On this point it is worth stressing the huge increase of Malware (over 94% more than those occured in the last year if compared to 2016), Account Cracking (+13% approximately), Phishing and Social Engineering (+34% approximately), and Multiple Technique / APT (almost 7% more on average). Clearly in the report there will be found other important informations you can read by downloading it from the Clusit website.

Actually what we would outline here is a worrying picture that comes out of the phenomenon, so much to force ourselves to consider the anti-hacking defense tools a top priority for the years to come. In other words, you can’t turn a blind eye to problem anymore! Maybe the vast majority of cyber security tools put in place so far by companies or institutions have not been as efficient as we thought. For the same reason we will never insist enough on matter reaffirming that actually the right solution is on hand. Perhaps, what is needed is just a little more technological “literacy” so that to identify the right instruments to achieve our security objectives.

gps-gprs-tracking-system

Real time tracking of cars, motos, trucks, containers etc. Extremely resistant, waterproof/weatherproof device!

Are you looking for a compact, efficient and professional GPS tracker to find a vehicle position? Well, in this case Quad Track is the best choice you can make. This brand-new quad band real-time locator system has indeed a higher gear than other similar devices on the market today. For example, it allows to follow the path of a vehicle with a very impressive accuracy (it can diverge only 5m from the real position), by using the combined action of GPS/GPRS signal (A-GPS) able to redress the time latency necessary to detect the first vehicle position. Thus the system can be effectively used as an alarm tracking system too!

QUAD-TRACK is at the same time very simple to program as well as to be placed under a vehicle. In fact all waypoints and coordinates are saved and sent to your chosen telephone number, so no other action is required on your side. Not only. You can also choose to automatically forward the positions to a control server, which can be reached via the Internet or app. From here you can track the vehicle movements with a very impressive accuracy. So Quad Track is not only able to withstand the most extreme vehicle vibrations, but also to operate in the most adverse weather conditions, because of its 3 powerful neodymium magnets and waterproof outer casing.

Main strengths of the tracker

  • Able to directly detect the signal reflected from ground for a better position gain;
  • Integrated motion sensor, operating both on vibration and activation via programmed mode (alert function);
  • Low consumption: you can set the device to make it work when needed;
  • Ultra-resistant device thanks to its 3 neodymium magnets;
  • Can be supplied directly from the car by means of a micro-adapter for continuous and intensive use;
  • Can be set and programmed remotely.

Here we are to talk about a great brand new handheld device, one of a kind, which allows you to shoot and transmit live video streaming via mobile network without needing to use additional peripherals or video capture cards. Not only. HD-STREAM also comes with the uncommon benefit to work without any memory cards for data storage, since it can upload video directly on an external server.

That’s the reason why the product has become in a short time such an essential tool for cameramen, TV technicians, police forces engaged in undercover operations, military, video reporter, civil protection operators or in general anyone who needs a real time high quality video transmission with very low latency. Not to mention that the server through which data is passed is absolutely free of charge. Anyway let’s see how the device is made up.

Although it is light and compact, HD-STREAM is equipped with everything needed to work as all-in-one system for professional high definition video broadcasting. On the other hand, the device holds a multichannel selector for simultaneous use of 2 to 8 SIM cards LTE / UMTS in parallel, useful both to increase upload bandwith and to ensure the transmission smoothness without any loss of quality or frame rate. It makes use as well of a special algorithm able to process and balance video streaming according to the uploading ability of the mobile operator in use. In any case the system works on 3G UMTS/4G LTE network both on battery and continuous power to be suited for quick interventions or long video monitoring sessions.

Another peculiarity of this smart video streaming equipment is that it can be easily managed remotely via the WiFi network, as well as to be led from touch screen, allowing the user to set video channels, bandwidth, camera controls, connection network and broadcasting parameters. Along with the device you will take advantage of a free training course in order to use the product in the best right way!

Spy listening bugs for cars: which device is best to use?

marzo 23, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti
gsm-spy-listenig-device-bug-car

Not everyone is able to install a listening device bug inside a car, since the work in question requires special skills that if not well taken into account can undermine your results. Not to mention that there are some smashing bugs which can operate more effectively than others in restricted or enclosed environments as well as in those ones on the move, just as a car may be. In any case it is always better to opt for miniaturized GSM bugs, working on mobile network, so as to make sure that you achieve immediate results not caring whether the bug signal is close enough to be detected.

One of the best GSM bugs suited to doing the work is surely the quadband GSM-001 bug, equipped with voice-activated sensor and a special anti sweep system, which uses a SIM card enablig investigators to listen from any distance. Anyway let’s look at benefits provided by this kind of transmitters trying to figure out how they can help you in investigation.

A very small technologically advanced spy bug

The GSM-001 bug can be easily concealed inside courtesy lights, dashboards or any other car recesses easily reachable by 12V power suply, thanks to its small size (39mm in width, 40mm in length and 9mm in height). The spy bug also has a powerful DSP processor, able to filter and reduce those background noises or rustling that may occur on a moving car. The DSP can be indifferently set on different parameters and levels as well.

Maximum audio quality, automatic microphone switch-on and anti-detection security

The investigator can also make use of special functions in order to achieve much greater effectiveness in operations, such as: the Dynamic Mic function that can automatically activate the microphone on three programmable audio levels, the MOX function suited for moving vehicle detection and finally the very useful anti-sweep system, able to protect the bug against scanner equipments. In this latter case, the GSM mode turns off looking “dead” from the outside for a certain period of time set by the operator. Anyway after that time it turns on automatically.

Further advantages of GSM-001 bug

The wonders of this amazing spy bug do not end here certainly. Here are some other benefits that can be achieved from the GSM-001 bug use:

  • Remotely programmable via SMS
  • Virtual lock that reduces accidental or non authorized reprogramming
  • Single listing functionality that eliminates non authorized user on listing the unit
  • Motion (start and stop) SMS alarm functionality
  • Fast reset to factory default settings
  • Remote stealth functionality that immediately switches off the unit for a specific time
  • Recall functionality on movement or VOX
  • “Infinity” function for a continue call listening, also without the presence of events (movement or VOX)
  • Remote diagnostic including unit IMEI, main cells and all other secondary cells with signal straight
  • DTMF tone emitted in case of SMS reception
  • “Ring Alarm” function towards base station with voice call and succeeding self-breakdown by module
  • Diagnostic LED remotely switchable OFF through SMS

Investigations: is it better to use a spy bug transmitter or a micro recorder?

marzo 14, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti
kit-radio-uhf-listening-system

According to our survey about audio surveillance systems, many investigators and security operators have showed more interest in voice recorders rather than bug transmitters. At first glance, it would seem that a bug, working on radiofrequency or GSM network, is less valuable than a recorder. Not to mention those surveillance operators who still stuck on the rosy notion that a bug transmitter must necessarily concern only few specific investigational needs. But is it really like that? Let’s see below what are the benefits of using both devices in your investigations.

The unquestionable application qualities of a bug

When we talk of bugs, the first question that comes to our mind is: how to put it on long time charge? You know, one of the most common problems raised by bug users are linked to power supply, especially if the device must be used for many days straight. In fact, it is not always possible to retrieve the transmitter for changing batteries. So in such cases it would be usually best to connect the bug to the mains directly, so that you will not have to worry anymore about duration time. What are the main advantages of an audio bug? Well, first of all the immediacy of results, I mean the ability to get audio information in real time, as well as miniaturization or unlimited use from any distance when it comes to GSM bug working on mobile network.

The incredible functional versatility of a micro recorder

Now let’s go to analyze the basic advantages of a micro recorder. The main use of a voice recorder to be used in investigative fields is as known the collection of evidence for the defence. Anyway this is not the only reason why it is such demanded: think for example of its ease of concealment, its ability to start voice activation recordings automatically or by calendar, to say nothing of its very low battery consumption. In fact, some micro recorders can be connected to batteries so to allow even up to 45 days of recordings!

Hence from our excursus comes out a rather variegated picture of the two devices, although the issue tips the balance in favour of the recording devices. So how to behave? Is it still worthwhile using a radio bug or a GSM bug? Of course yes! As those investigators who follow us probably know, bug transmitters are substantially different from micro-recorders in their scope. In that case there’s nothing to do but reiterate: if your goal is to immediately start investigating, or you are miles away from your target, well, a GSM bug is fit for purpose!

Finally, for those who are looking for a system owning both a bug and a recorder, we report this kit which provides both functions in a single unit.

Are you also a victim of micro-cheating? Let’s find out!

micro-cheating-phenomena

Do you believe you won’t never be affected by cheating? Do not blindly trust your emotional control efforts! Cause in the past you might have put in place some micro-cheating behavioural actions, without even knowing it.

The question raised on the net some months ago thanks to an interview released to Daily Mail on line journal by the australian psychologist Melanie Schilling, who put a spotlight on the word “micro-cheating”, although actually the term has been taken into consideration by Urban Dictionary since years. Anyway there under the voice “micro-cheating” we read: “Small acts considered disloyal within a relationship, nothing too serious but not innocent either”.

In short, according to the australian scientist, we should actually focus on ourselves to avoid micro-cheating actions caused by the spread of new technologies, especially social network e.g. chatting with other users, sharing online games, making advances on someone by posting explicit content etc. In short, she wanted to underline all those behaviors that somehow could lead to infidelity.

But let’s see how to get out of the phenomena by treating this new sort of psychological “disease” so as not to be overwhelmed by it. The word to consider in this case is always the same: honesty. Whether toward yourself, i.e. avoiding to engage in compromising behaviors whenever possible, either toward your partner, if you instead have made up your mind to make your intentions clear. And what about those victims who are gripped by doubt? Well, in this case you can also rely on private investigator services or use some surveillance devices that, even if ineffective in healing you from your psychological wound, are actually helpful to show you things from another perspective.

Cryptocurrency: beware of mobile security threats!

febbraio 14, 2018 Countersurveillance No Commenti
secure-mobile-phone-cryptocurrency

The past year has been one of the worst ever affected by mobile piracy, especially in financial and cryptocurrency fields. Well, no wonder, cause the creation of new financial products is often accompanied by frauding behaviour.

A new survey can help us understand the emerging “cybercrime” phenomenon

According to a survey involving 410 participants (mostly security managers) conducted by Check Point Software Technology, a leader company in cybersecurity market, in the last year 2 companies out of 10 have been hit by hacker attacks of some kind against smartphones or other mobile communication systems. Not only. More than half of the respondents have been forced themselves to admit to being aware of the preponderance of data theft risk from mobile devices compared to desktop or laptop systems. A 60% of them have also raised doubts about the effectiveness of their security systems in preventing this kind of threat, either due to lack of budget or to not actually experienced personnel. In principle it has been emerged the need to use security tools, as well as more financial resources and qualified personnel to eradicate mobile hacking phenomena once and for all.

Cryptocurrency. Mobile security is not properly its strength!

Let’s go back to talking about the sectors most affected by cybercrime, namely financial and cryptocurrency in particular. Well, on January 26 of this year, the japanese cryptocurrency exchange platform, Coincheck, revealed to the world they had been robbed of 523 million in NEM by hackers. This says a lot about dangers deriving from the incautious use of smartphones and tablets used in this kind of operations, aren’t you agree?

Don’t be concerned, the solution is at your fingertips

In order to low the risk of data theft from mobile devices, we have developed some encrypted smartphones for avoiding mobile hacking also in financial field. In particular Crypto CP-500 and Zimmermann Mobile have been proved to be effective in preventing fraud exploits coming along the management of cryptocurrency wallets, besides to ensure secure calls and messages. Put simply, we are finally in presence of two very effective devices, able to provide a total protection against the most common threats in mobile data theft.

Professional spy bugs: why it is important to rely on top expert surveillance companies

febbraio 2, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti
professional-spy-bugs-expert-companies

The ultimate european statistics linked to online commerce are very encouraging. In fact, the revenue of global ecommerce for the past year is around 600 billion euros (24 billion only in Italy!), with an overall increase of almost 15% more of the previous year.

Nonetheless, in this idyllic digital universe studded with e-stores and online products, there is a flaw that, if not properly dammed, can belittle the efforts of those who over the years have made of quality their own battle horse. That’s right, companies with a certain proven reputability are suddenly forced to compete with a lot of newborn realities, most of them endowed of low value assessment and poor product quality.

This trend shows an emerging danger in the sale of electronic surveillance devices. In this specific commercial field, in fact, companies are exposed to the verification of certain technical / commercial skills, first of all a deep product knowledge, quality control and uncommon communication skills. The professional spy bug sales sector, for example, requires a particular approach to customerhip because of its connection with unusual and tricky realities, well known to a top expert surveillance company.

Regarding quality parameters, here are the main characteristics of reliability that a professional spy bug should absolutely have:

  • materials fitting the environment in which it is going to operate
  • optimal audio (or video) reception quality
  • targeted and personalized use
  • small size and ease of concealment
  • long-term operation
  • guarantee of success into investigative strategies

As well as it is important that the vendor can provide a full service assistance, especially of post-assistance, in order to be sure that the client is using the device in a correct way. For e.g. it is essential to determine together whith client which product meets his needs, following him in the early stages of installation, or be ready to solve any request or difficulty found. In some cases, the mentioned request can also be asked at impossible times.

Well, it’s time to go on drawing up a list of which professional bugs are mostly used and their related advantages:

  • GSM/UMTS spy bug: a GSM bug works on mobile network, so it has the advantage of being ‘heard’ from any distance through a simple phone call. A UMTS bug, instead, can additionally capture video if necessary
  • digital radiofrequency/WFM UHF spy bug: this kind of transmitter is very small and work interfaced with a receiver to listen within the bug range. Greater power corresponds to greater listening distance
  • WiFi micro-camera: although this kind of device does not belong to the narrow circle of real bugs, it allows you to have a continuous connection (via smartphone or PC) in order to remotely control any environment

In short, commercializing GSM, UHF, WiFi, etc. professional bugs it’s not for everyone. We need people able to put in place a peculiar approach to sale, or a type of intervention aimed at customers, that most of companies you can see at a glance in search engine results may rarely offer!
