Air force tested European personnel with real cyberattacks

In November 2018, the Air Force targeted its personnel at bases in Europe with spear-phishing attacks to test their awareness of potential online threats.

The tests were coordinated with Air Force leaders in Europe and employed tactics known to be used by adversaries targeting the US and its partners, the Air Force said in a release.

The U.S. national security planners are proposing that the 21st century's critical infrastructure - power grids, communications, water utilities, financial networks- be similarly shielded from cyber marauders and other foes.

Spear-phishing, which targets specific users, has already been used in the real world with profound effects. Spear-phishing differs from normal phishing attempts in that it targets specific accounts and attempts to mimic trusted sources.

Spear-phishing is a "persistent threat" to network integrity, Col. Anthony Thomas, head of Air Force Cyber Operations, said in the release.

"Even one user falling for a spear-phishing attempt creates an opening for our adversaries," Thomas said. "Part of mission resiliency is ensuring our airmen have the proficiency to recognize and thwart adversary actions."

Just before Christmas in 2015, Russian hackers allegedly used spear-phishing emails and Microsoft Word documents embedded with malicious code to hit Ukraine with a cyberattack that caused power outages — the first publicly known attack to have such an effect.

This month, the US Department of Justice charged two Chinese nationals with involvement in a decade-long, government-backed effort to hack and steal information from US tech firms and government agencies.

Their group relied on spear-phishing, using an email address that looked legitimate to send messages with documents laden with malicious code.

For their test in November, Air Force cyber-operations officials sent emails from non-Department of Defense addresses to users on the Air Force network, including content in them that looked legitimate.

The emails told recipients to do several different things, according to the release.

PUBG Corp. Bans Over 30,000 Players Including Professional Players

Following the release of the fourth and the most awaited, snow map- Vikendi, PUBG Corp. has taken effective measures to track down radar hack cheaters and has permanently banned 30,000 players using the same to get an unfair advantage over other players; it holds certain significance in a battle royale game which puts the name of the top players in global and regional rankings.

What is Radar hack?

Radar hack is a cheat which lets the players (cheaters) locate other players (opponents) through a second monitor or mobile application redirected via a VPN server which made the detection of the hack complex but PUBG Corp. effectively handled the issue employing ‘BattleEye’.

In a game which is preferably played in TPP (Third Person Perspective), positioning and encampment is the key as the third person view allows players to have more options to effectively manipulate the camera angles and uneven 3D terrains, which explains how potential of a cheat radar hack can be, given, it will be updating the user with the live location of the enemies on the map.

PUBG has resorted to anti-cheat software ‘BattleEye’ to track down the suspected hackers, as a result of which certain PUBG professional players have also been banned. 

The list includes Can Ozdemir, aka TEXQS, ezk0, Houlow, Kraqen, Papaya, Cageman, PlayerJones, and Hoffmann88, to name a few.

TEXQS played for 'Pittsburgh Knights', an e-sports team which has issued a statement on Twitter stating that TEXQS has been suspended and an investigation has been instigated while they await more details from PUBG corp.

This development has only affected the players playing the game on PC, PS4, and XBOX. There are no reports of the ban encompassing PUBG mobile players. At times, innocent players suffer collateral damage, it has happened in the past and therefore, we can expect the regular players being unbanned any time soon.
