Pro ATM Hacker ‘Chao’ Gives Out ATM Hacking Tips

Keep on Guard!


It seems like ATM hacking is still the way to go for those into a bit of hardware hacking. One of the most notorious and well known ATM hackers was recently arrest in Turkey and a list of his tips discovered online where he also sold the ATM skimming equipment.

Well his tips can’t be THAT good if he got caught can they?

A bank-machine hacker who reportedly was arrested earlier this month in Turkey gave would-be fraudsters tips on how to install rogue card-reading devices, including advising them to target drive-through ATMs (automated teller machines) and avoid towns with fewer than 15,000 residents.

The hacker, who went by the handle “Chao,” reportedly was arrested earlier this month in Turkey. He was one of the most well-known ATM hackers in the world, according to Uri Rivner, head of new technologies for RSA Consumer Solutions.

Chao sold fake faceplates that fraudsters could attach to the card slots in ATMs. These “skimmer” devices can read the magnetic stripe of every customer’s ATM or credit card, and are often used in conjunction with a hidden camera that watches people enter their PINs (personal identification numbers), Rivner said. Alternatively, criminals can attach an extra keypad on top of the one in the machine and capture the PIN that way, he added.

It seems like the old methods are still prevailing but the kit used is probably lot smaller, neater and unobtrusive. They skim your card, record your pin on the number pad with a micro dot camera and usually beam it all to a wifi PC nearby which will pipe it back to the owner over the net with a 3G phone or similar.

Just be careful where you use the ATM machine and cover the numberpad with your other hand when you are typing to the PIN to be extra vigilant.

  • don’t install a skimmer in the morning, because people are more vigilant then;
  • determine where a person would have to stand to keep an eye on everything happening on that block;
  • avoid blocks where more than 250 people per day walk through, because of the danger of detection;
  • don’t install skimmers in towns with fewer than 15,000 people, because people in those towns know what their ATMs look like;
  • avoid areas with small shops open 24 hours a day, because there may be surveillance cameras and vigilant shopkeepers;
  • don’t set up in areas where a lot of illegal immigrants live;
  • places with a lot of tourist traffic are good;
  • look for affluent neighborhoods and drive-through ATMs;
  • ATMs near cash-only bars are a good bet for lots of customer activity.

The tips are really nothing ground-breaking, but interesting to read nevertheless. Most of them could be considered common sense, but some like not targeting really small towns are quite interesting.

I would have thought busy times would have been the best time to go in as long as there is no-one else queuing at the ATM machine.

dnsscan – DNS Open Recursive Resolver Scanner/Scanning Tool

Keep on Guard!


Dnsscan is a tool for finger printing open recursive resolvers. It runs in conjuction with a small server that knows how to reply to queries forwarded from probed resolvers. For example, assume that you have delegated osd.example.org:

On 10.0.0.1, you would run:

On the client that initiates the DNS probes, you would run

Progress of the dnsscan tool can be monitored via a web browser on port 8080. If the tool crashes or gets terminated, it can be restarted from the checkpoint file.

Both of the tools log their output into files, the output can be inspected with the dnsreader tool.

If this does not mean anything to you, you should probably not use this tool. This tool has been released to support repeatable research, some of the results obtained with tools such as these have been published at NDSS’08.

Notice

Use of dnsscan across a large network block requires coordination with your network provider. In all likelihood, you will receive (and must manage) abuse complaints due to the volume of DNS queries. You should consult RFC 1262 for suggestions on how to conduct such Internet-wide studies.

Brits Give Up Passwords For a £5 Gift Voucher

Outsmart Malicious Hackers


So it turns out you don’t need any fancy password cracking software like John the Ripper or Cain and Abel you just need a handful of £5 gift vouchers for Marks and Spencers!

But we had discussed this in part before, some people will give out their passwords if you just ask, some if you offer chocolate and this time in the guise of a ‘survey’ for a gift voucher.

Although the majority (60 percent) of 207 London residents were happy to hand over computer password data which might be useful to potential ID thieves in exchange for a £5 M&S gift voucher, the public at large take a hard line on firms who fail to keep tight hold of customer data.

In exchange for the voucher, a number of those quizzed during a street survey in Covent Garden earlier this week went on to explain how they remember their password and which online websites (from a range of email, shopping, banking and social networking sites) they most frequently use. A sizeable chunk of those surveyed (45 per cent) said they used either their birthday, their mother’s maiden name or a pet’s name as a password.

Perhaps it’s just as well that stolen identities are worth a lot less than £5, fetching as little as 50p on the underground black market, according to Symantec.

It seems like rather than giving out the actual password they answered questions put together in such a way that a profiler could easily work out what their password was and which sites they used it on.

Pretty sneaky methinks, it’s a good way to test how paranoid people are about their data security…it’s ironic really seeing how much they complain but at the end of it they are their own worst danger.

ine in ten (89 per cent) of 1,000 Brits quizzed during a wider survey, commissioned by Symantec and price comparison site moneysupermarket.com, expressed the opinion that “reckless and repeated” data breaches ought to be punished by criminal prosecutions. Sanctions should include the ability to incarcerate directors of negligent firms in jail. Eight out of ten of those quizzed agreed there should be a “one strike and you’re out” rule for data loss.

Almost four in five of those polled reckon their personal data is not secure in the hands of companies that hold it, a finding that probably stems from the steady drip of data breach stories that have followed from the massive HMRC child benefit lost disc bungle last year. Three in four consumers are concerned about the amount of information organisation hold on them, regardless of whether or not this information is held online or offline. Online payments were perceived as the single greatest risk for losing data.

The general public are pretty harsh too when it comes to dishing out punishment, but then again that is human nature and that is why there’s jury service.

It’s not surprising either that people have very little faith in data stored by the government and their greatest fear is carrying out online transactions.

I think we all know well enough to keep ourselves safe…but sadly as always it seems the rest of the world don’t.

Intercage – Spam/Malware Friendly ISP Back Online

Outsmart Malicious Hackers


There has been a big hoo-haa recently about a US ISP called Intercage who have said to have been harbouring spammers and scammers via their largest client an Eastern European webhost called Esthost.

Their plug got pulled 2 days ago by the upstream provider IP transit provider UnitedLayer after weeks of criticism from the community showing IP addresses under the management of Intercage were hosting a number of sites engaged in phishing, malware propagation, and other illegal activities.

It’s a pretty bold move by UnitedLayer..but Intercage and their website is back online now.

A day after security experts celebrated the death of a network provider accused of hosting a large concentration of the world’s cybercrime, California-based Intercage appeared to be among the living again.

IP transit provider UnitedLayer agreed to provide upstream service to Intercage about 36 hours after its last transit provider pulled the plug. UnitedLayer’s move, which is sure to prove unpopular in some circles, came after Intercage agreed to completely sever ties with Esthost, the Eastern European web host believed by many to be responsible for the lion’s share of abusive traffic carried by Intercage.

The dumping of Esthost, if true, would mark a major turning point for Intercage. Esthost, which according to many researchers hosts a large number of sites engaged in phishing, malware propagation, and other illegal activities, has relied on Intercage since 2004 and is responsible for 25 percent to 50 percent of its revenue, according to Intercage president and owner Emil Kacperski.

It looks like it’s going to hurt them with between a quarter and a half of their revenue coming from this one customer! They shouldn’t have put all their eggs in one basket, especially a malware ridden Eastern European basket.

I think Internet Exchanges and upstream providers need to be more vigilant about spam and malware propagation sites, if hosts refuse to sort the problem out – pull the plug!

For its part, UnitedLayer officials said they thought long and hard about the decision to take on Intercage as a customer, and based on the promises they got, they decided it made sense.

“We have been assured by Emil and Intercage that the customer in question that caused this firestorm has been removed,” said UnitedLayer COO Richard Donaldson. “And we have said very unequivocally to Emil that when and if factual evidence is provided to us that puts him in violation of our AUP (acceptable use policy)…then we will terminate them like we would any other client.”

Over the past few weeks, the Intercage saga has at times resembled the wild west, where justice is meted out by an informal network of power brokers rather than duly appointed officials. Given the frequent inability of today’s law enforcement in overcoming a rat’s nest of extra-territorial and technical issues, this form of frontier justice is probably unavoidable. And in any case, the vast majority of the white hats manning the system are honest and have netizens’ best interests at heart.

There is definitely a potential for abuse here and it’s something that needs to be watched. More people need to take time to submit abuse reports, headers and IP addresses to the upstream providers, data centers and hosts involved.

Some may not know what the sites on their network are doing, some may actually be hacked, and some may be complicit with the spammers – but either way people need to report!

It’s an interesting story and definitely one to watch, let’s just hope no-one starts to abuse this with RIAA take-down notices etc.

ohrwurm – RTP Fuzzing Tool (SIP Phones)

Outsmart Malicious Hackers


ohrwurm is a small and simple RTP fuzzer, it has been tested it on a small number of SIP phones, none of them withstood the fuzzing.

Features:

  • reads SIP messages to get information of the RTP port numbers
  • reading SIP can be omitted by providing the RTP port numbers, so that any RTP traffic can be fuzzed
  • RTCP traffic can be suppressed to avoid that codecs learn about the “noisy line”
  • special care is taken to break RTP handling itself
  • the RTP payload is fuzzed with a constant BER
  • the BER is configurable
  • requires arpspoof from dsniff to do the MITM attack
  • requires both phones to be in a switched LAN (GW operation only works partially)

You can download ohrwurm 0.1 here:

ohrwurm-0.1.tar.bz2
