Boston Business Journal: CSI Cyber brings cybersecurity into the spotlight

David Harris writes in the Boston Business Journal that "CSI: Cyber" is over the top, but it might be a good thing for Boston's cybersecurity scene.

The new CBS series is trying to make technology — specifically cybersecurity — more dramatic and relatable. The first episode of the show, which debuted on Wednesday and takes place in Baltimore, starts out with some mysterious person or group of people hacking into a wirelessly-connected baby monitor and watching a baby. The baby's parents then discover the kid is gone. It's a parent's worst nightmare.

And it's a good reminder that cybersecurity is a major issue around the world as we get more and more connected.

Dark Reading: Newly Discovered Master Cyber Espionage Group

Kelly Jackson Higgins reports in Dark Reading that a newly uncovered cyber espionage operation that predates and rivals Stuxnet has been underway since at least 2001. The Equation Group is armed with advanced tools and techniques that include hacking air-gapped computers and a first -- silently reprogramming victims' hard drives, such that malware can't be detected or erased.

Last week researchers from Kaspersky Lab, at the Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit in Cancun, gave details of the hacking operation, which they describe as the most sophisticated attack group they have seen thus far of the approximately 60 such groups they currently track.

The Equation Group also has ties to Stuxnet and Flame, but outranks those attacks, having deployed in 2008 two of the zero-day exploits that were later used by Stuxnet. That suggests the Equation Group provided those exploits to the Stuxnet gang and is the "masters" over them, according to Kaspersky Lab.
