FBI investigating ransomware attack on Steamship Authority

https://www.capecodtimes.com/story/news ... 504952002/
The Woods Hole, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority was the target of a ransomware attack Wednesday morning, and the extent and origin of the attack is under investigation by the FBI and other agencies.

The FBI is now taking lead on the investigation, working in conjunction with the Coast Guard and the Massachusetts State Police Cyber Security Unit, Coast Guard First District Petty Officer Amanda Wyrick said in an email.

There is no impact to the safety of vessel operations since the issue did not affect radar or GPS functions, according to the Authority.

Scheduled trips to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are still happening, and the Steamship Authority posted its schedules on its social media. Customers may experience some delays during the ticketing process, and customers are unable to book or change vehicle reservations online or by phone, according to the Steamship Authority.

nothing new, I bet you have already changed your passwords
Billions of passwords leaked online from past data breaches
Dubbed RockYou2021, the list as revealed on a hacker forum contains 8.4 billion password entries, says CyberNews.

A list of leaked passwords discovered on a hacker forum may be one of the largest such collections of all time. A 100GB text file leaked by a user on a popular hacker forum contains 8.4 billion passwords, likely gathered from past data breaches, tech news site CyberNews said on Monday.

Based on comments from the user, the passwords in the collection range from 6 to 20 characters with non-ASCII characters and white spaces removed. The user actually claimed that the list has 82 billion passwords.

But CyberNews refuted that claim, saying that its own test found around 10 times fewer entries, putting the figure closer to 8.4 billion. That's still a substantial number, especially considering that there are 4.7 billion active internet users around the world.

The forum user named the collection RockYou2021, which CyberNews said it believes is a reference to the 2009 RockYou data breach in which social game developer RockYou was hit by an attack that exploited a SQL injection flaw. In this incident, the 32 million leaked passwords had been stored in an unencrypted format, making it easy for hackers to obtain them through brute force.

Yandex Go hacked, someone orders all cabs in Moscow to the square (Sept. 1, 2022)

Posted on 2022-09-02

Since the invasion of Ukraine, Russia has also been targeted by various hacker groups. The days hackers probably managed to hack the service Yandex Taxi. Then the attackers simply ordered all available cabs to a certain address in the center of Moscow. It is easy to imagine the traffic chaos that must have prevailed there.

I found the first news on reddit.com, with this post referring to a Twitter post about the event. According to Forbes Russia, on the morning of September 1, 2022, motorists in Moscow complained about the unusual accumulation of cabs on Kutuzovsky Avenue in the west of the capital. Motorists were stuck in the traffic jam caused by the accumulation of cabs for about 40 minutes.
