Yesterday at its annual F8 Developer Conference in San Francisco, Facebook officially turned its Messenger app into a Platform. Facebook's Messenger Platform allows third-party app developers to integrate their apps with Facebook messenger app. However, other popular messaging apps are already offering similar features, like Chinese WeChat, but Facebook release is much bigger than any other platform. At F8 Developer Conference, Facebook released SDK v4.0 for iOS and Android along with Graph API v2.3 that enable app developers to add new messenger platform features to their custom apps quickly. Facebook users can install these compatible third-party apps from the messenger app, which offers users to send animated GIFs, images, videos, and more content within the Facebook Messenger app easily. BOON FOR BOTH FACEBOOK AND THIRD PARTY DEVELOPERS Facebook Messenger Platform will offer third party app developers to reach out Facebook’s 600 Millions of users. So, the move will be a boon for third-party app developers. On the other hand, the move will help Facebook to integrate its messaging service directly into the vast ecosystem of Android and iOS apps. BUSINESSES ON MESSENGER The Social Networking giant also announced "Businesses on Messenger," feature that will soon let users connect directly with companies and make direct conversation, replacing the need for retailer chat windows in the process. When customers place an order for goods or services, they will be prompted to head to Facebook Messenger for communications including modifying orders, tracking orders, returning merchandise and getting answers to questions. Third party app developers who are interested in learning more and integrating their apps with the new Facebook Messenger Platform can grab the SDK on Facebook’s website. LAUNCH PARTNERS The new Messenger Platform is open to all developers, but Facebook launched 40 different apps initially with its partners, including ESPN, Giphy, Imgur, The Weather Channel and Bitmoji. The complete list of Messenger Platform launch partners are as follow: Action Movie FX Bitmoji Cleo Video Texting Clips ClipDis Ditty Dubsmash Effectify EmotionAR Emu ESPN FlipLip Voice Changer Fotor GIF Keyboard GIFJam Giphy Hook’d Imgur Imoji JibJab Kanvas Keek Legend Magisto Meme Generator Noah Camera Pic Stitch PicCollage GIF Cam PingTank Pyro!

Kaspersky malware probers have uncovered a new 'operating system'-like platform that was developed and used by the National Security Agency (NSA) in its Equation spying arsenal. The EquationDrug or Equestre platform is used to deploy 116 modules to target computers that can siphon data and spy on victims. "It's important to note that EquationDrug is not just a trojan, but a full espionage platform, which includes a framework for conducting cyberespionage activities by deploying specific modules on the machines of selected victims," Kaspersky researchers say in a report. "Other threat actors known to use such sophisticated platforms include Regin and Epic Turla. "The architecture of the whole framework resembles a mini-operating system with kernel-mode and user-mode components carefully interacting with each other via a custom message-passing interface." The platform is part of the NSA's possibly ongoing campaign to infect hard disk firmware. It replaces the older EquationLaser and is itself superseded by the GrayFish platform. Kaspersky says the newly-identified wares are as "sophisticated as a space station" thanks to the sheer number of included espionage tools. Extra modules can be added through a custom encrypted file system containing dozens of executables that together baffle most security bods. Most of the unique identifiers and codenames tied to modules is encrypted and obfuscated. Some modules capabilities can be determined with unique identification numbers. Others are dependent on other plugins to function. Each plugin has a unique ID and version number that defines a set of functions it can provide. Some of the plugins depend on others and might not work unless dependencies are resolved. Kaspersky bods have found 30 of the 116 modules estimated to exist. "The plugins we discovered probably represent just a fraction of the attackers' potential," the researchers say. Executable timestamps reveal NSA developers likely work hardest on the platform on Tuesdays to Fridays, perhaps having late starts to Monday. Modules detected in the tool include code for: Network traffic interception for stealing or re-routing Reverse DNS resolution (DNS PTR records) Computer management Start/stop processes Load drivers and libraries Manage files and directories System information gathering OS version detection Computer name detection User name detection Locale detection Keyboard layout detection Timezone detection Process list Browsing network resources and enumerating and accessing shares WMI information gathering Collection of cached passwords Enumeration of processes and other system objects Monitoring LIVE user activity in web browsers Low-level NTFS filesystem access based on the popular Sleuthkit framework Monitoring removable storage drives Passive network backdoor (runs Equation shellcode from raw traffic) HDD and SSD firmware manipulation Keylogging and clipboard monitoring Browser history, cached passwords and form auto-fill data collection.

Radware Introduces New DDoS Attack Mitigation Platform
mundy. posted a topic in Stiri securitateRadware, a provider of application delivery DDoS attack protection solutions, this week unveiled its latest attack mitigation platform designed to help carriers and cloud providers protect against high volume DDoS attacks. According to Radware, its new attack mitigation platform provides up to 300Gbps of mitigation capacity and can help protect against volumetric DDoS attacks such as UDP reflection attacks, fragmented and out-of-state floods. Radware’s DefensePro x4420 has the ability to handle 230 million packets per second of attack traffic and was designed for multi-tenant environments with the ability to support up-to 1,000 active policies, separate processing capabilities and customized management & reporting per tenant, the company said. “Cyber-attacks have evolved and reached a tipping point in terms of quantity, length, complexity and targets,” says Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions for Radware. “In 2014, one in seven cyber-attacks were larger than 10Gbps and we’ve seen attacks 100+Gbps in size. The attack landscape is changing and cyber-attackers are getting more and more aggressive with their tactics. It’s not uncommon for mobile carriers and cloud providers to experience extra-large attacks.” “Soon enough, DDoS attacks will eventually reach the 1Tbs level, placing manufacturers in a frenzy to keep up with future volumetric cyberattacks,” Dan Thormodsgaard, vice president of solutions architecture for FishNet Security, said in a statement. More information on the platform is available online. Sursa: securityweek.com
The "Things" Shop
askwrite posted a topic in RST MarketI've developed a platform for selling "things". The "things" shop was developed for selling custom products in the most secure way. You can sell anything like: smtps, servers, websites, backlinks, proxies. Supported payment methods: - Bitcoin - Perfectmoney Features: - Custom categories with custom fields http://i.imgur.com/hwO8tfA.png - Trusted users with categories only for them. (for selling high risk things) http://i.imgur.com/lm6B2Nn.png - Resellers. (you can use other people products and pay them a fee) http://i.imgur.com/jOlftS2.png - Disable registration, disable the entire website. http://i.imgur.com/JtQsrJN.png - Purchased products management. http://i.imgur.com/n3eaPFV.png - Extraordinary tickets system with refunding support. http://i.imgur.com/vqkzaNK.png - Hidden fields (like the smtp password) - Intrusion Detection System - Login Bruteforce Protection This platform is built for a limited number of my clients from this field and it's designed to support an expensive range of needs.

Facebook, with its giant infrastructure and its equally wide view into Internet attacks, has built an information-sharing platform that it hopes will entice other big technology companies to join and contribute threat data and indicators of compromise. The platform, called ThreatExchange, already counts Pinterest, Yahoo, Tumblr, Twitter, Bitly and Dropbox among its early members. The cost is free, and most of the heavy lifting is done by Facebook’s infrastructure. The platform developers were also cognizant of some of the concerns enterprises have about sharing threat data, from both a competitive and risk management standpoint. Privacy controls are built in to ThreatExchange that not only sanitize information provided by members, but also allows contributors to share data with all of the exchange’s members, or only particular subsets. In addition to threat information shared by contributors, open source threat intelligence feeds are pulled into the platform. Mark Hammell, manager of Facebook’s threat infrastructure team, would not identify any of the open source feeds until some legal machinations are worked out. Facebook will homogenize all of those respective feeds’ data formats and make them consumable via ThreatExchange. “We’re able to leverage a huge community doing security research independently and give them a platform,” Hammell said. Hammell said he hopes the initial partner list grows to include other technology companies with a large Internet footprint. Microsoft, for example, has developed its own information sharing platform called Interflow, while the FBI announced last winter that it was releasing an unclassified version of its malware repository in the hopes of spurring public-private sharing of threat data. “If some reasonably large Internet properties cooperate on attacks they’ve seen and responded to, the vast majority of the Internet will be safer,” Hammell said. “We want to bring in more companies like that and eventually broaden it beyond big companies to smaller web properties and researchers. We want to create a forum where we can share attack and threat information in an easy way and share it with as many who want to receive it. “We realize that any problem that affects the Internet affects our products in lockstep,” Hammell said. “The corollary there is that the more we can do to take on larger problems the Internet is facing, the better our products will be and the safer the Internet will be.” ThreatExchange is an API-based exchange; IT admins will be able to consume threat data via the APIs and write signatures and other protections accordingly. Participants can share threat data such as malware samples, lists of malicious URLs and other indicators of compromise that make sense. While participants will be able to see the data, the will not be able to tell where it’s coming from, though everyone will have access to list of members. “You can see URLs that are known as bad, or metadata, but you cannot tell where it’s coming from; there is no attribution in the data,” Hammell said. Privacy controls within the framework allow contributors to publish breach data such as domains used in an attack or malware hashes and select who sees it. Facebook said there was one added use case where a contributor is allowed to select only specific other organizations to share data with. “The classic example is an attack you’re investigating where only you and a few companies are targeted,” Hammell explained. “They can collaborate together on that particular attack and share data, but perhaps they don’t feel it’s appropriate to go wider because it may tip their hand and alert the attacker, or it would not be beneficial to the investigation if others started poking at the infrastructure and possibly disrupt the work they’re doing. It’s an important scenario to get right.” Hammell added that the platform is free, and the intent is for it to stay that way. “We want the platform to be a medium to share what people want to share,” he said.
