    As stated by Corliss Tech Review Group, a malware is a type of software that is specifically created to gain access or damage user's sensitive data.

    Android has long been seen as vulnerable to malware because it is an open platform and several devices run older versions of the mobile operating system. Android is also one of the world's most popular mobile platform where it powers hundreds of millions of mobile devices in more than 190 countries worldwide, but its popularity has also made it a magnet for malwares based on Corliss Tech Review Group.

The Corliss Group Latest Tech Review Security experts offer online shopping tips

    As Americans spend billions on holiday shopping this month, online security experts say a little caution can go a long way when it comes to avoiding identity theft.

    "In general online shopping is good. It's safe for the most part, but it's the safest when you initiate the contact, when you log onto a known website," said Rick Avery, president of Boston-based Securitas Security Systems.

    Directly visiting trusted, reputable online retailers is just one way to attempt to avoid the cyber criminals who try to steal sensitive information from vulnerable computers and unsuspecting consumers.

    "There is a risk in commerce …" said Sam Ransbotham, an information systems professor at Boston College. "There is also a risk from walking around with a wad of cash. We've got years and years of experience walking around with wads of cash that we just don't have with these newer mechanisms."

    Purchases at brick-and-mortar stores aren't immune to data breaches either. Last year, hackers stole data from 40 million credit cards from Target, while cyber thieves got information from 56 million credit cards from Home Depot earlier this year.

    To reduce the chances of fraud, Avery advises that shoppers be wary of offers sent via email. Criminals, he said, may send legitimate-looking emails that appear to be from online merchants or banks. Rather than clicking on a link in an email, he recommends directly typing the website address into your browser.

    "One of the most dangerous ways people get involved with credit card fraud or theft on the Internet is they get emailed a link offering 50 percent off, or saying it's from the bank, and it's actually a false website made to look like the authentic website," he said.

    Cyber criminals can use fraudulent websites to gather financial information from a person or install malware on their computers.

    "If you're shopping around and find an extra, extra really good deal, that might be the online equivalent to buying cheap speakers out of the back of a truck," Ransbotham said. "If it's too good to be true, it is."

    Avery also recommends using credit cards or one-time use credit cards instead of debit cards.

    "Some banks have protections on a debit card, but not all do at the point of an ATM," Avery said. "Usually, your debit card is tied to your other banking accounts, and it's a lot more difficult to get your money back. It may be weeks before you get your money back."

    In some cases, a victim might never get that money back.

    Med alle rapporter om sikkerhetsbrudd, føler du at det er bare et spørsmål om tid før din identitet blir stjålet? Og hvis det er sant, vil registrere deg for en beskyttelse mot identitetstyveri tjeneste redde deg fra den tid, kostnad og forbitrelse med å rydde opp en identitet tyv rotet? Du har sikkert blitt tilbudt disse tjenestene, men det er vanskelig å vite hva som er verdt prisen. Trenger du virkelig en beskyttelse mot identitetstyveri tjenesten? Her er en titt på hva noen av de mest kjente identitetstyveri beskyttelse tjenester tilby, hvor de kommer til kort, og hvor mye de koster.

    1. ID Essentials fra TrustedID

    Mange beskyttelse mot identitetstyveri tjenester er tilgjengelig som frittstående tjenester gjennom et selskap som spesialiserer seg på ID-tyveri beskyttelse. TrustedID startet ut på den måten. Det har siden blitt kjøpt av Equifax, men Equifax har også sin egen separate, kjente merker ID-tyveri beskyttelse service. Vi valgte en anmeldelse TrustedID siden det har vært mye omtalt i nyhetsartikler om ID-tyveri, som kan øke sannsynligheten for en forbruker å registrere deg for denne tjenesten. Her er hva ID Essentials fra TrustedID tilbyr forbrukere.

    Kreditt-rapporter, kreditt score og kreditt overvåking: TrustedID sin beskyttelse mot identitetstyveri tjenesten overvåker kreditt daglig med alle de tre store kreditt-byråer. Du vil også få Equifax 3-Bureau kreditt rapporten og scorer; men dette er resultatet et pedagogisk score og ikke er den samme långivere og kreditorer bruke.

    Trusselvurderingen og reduksjon: TrustedID skanner offentlige databaser og Black Market Internett sider for ulovlig bruk av Social Security og kredittkortnumre. Det er tvilsomt hvor nyttig denne informasjonen er siden du ikke kan unexpose en kompromittert personnummer eller kontonummer.

    Tjenesten gir også en identitet Threat poeng for å hjelpe deg å vurdere risikoen for å bli en identitetstyveri offer. Identitet Threat Resultat ser på hvor mye av informasjonen er offentlig tilgjengelig - og hvor det er tilgjengelig - for å finne ut om du er på lav, moderat eller høy risiko for identitetstyveri. Basert på risikonivået, vil tjenesten anbefale tiltak for å redusere risikoen. Tjenesten prøver også å få din offentlig tilgjengelig personlig informasjon fjernet fra Internett, selv om det ikke kan garantere at nettstedene vil hedre forespørsler om fjerning eller ikke vil gjeninnføre din informasjon senere.

    TrustedID sjekker også Facebook-profilen og personverninnstillinger for å avgjøre om de setter deg i fare for ID-tyveri. TrustedID også får ditt navn av søppelpost og forhåndsgodkjent tilbudslister. Du kan håndtere disse oppgavene selv gratis gjennom optoutprescreen.com og DMAchoice.org.

    Assistanse Oppløsning: TrustedID sier sin restaurering prosessen omfatter gjennomgang kreditt-filer med deg for å sjekke for unøyaktigheter og svindel, varsle tilbyderne av den berørte kontoer (finansinstitusjoner, kredittkortselskaper, nytte tilbydere og handelsmenn) og varsle de aktuelle offentlige organer. Det sier også du kan bli pålagt å varsle store kreditt-byråer, Federal Trade Commission Identitetstyveri hotline og hensiktsmessig politimyndigheter hvis du ønsker å dra nytte av forsikring, så det er uklart hvor mye av oppryddingsarbeidet må du gjøre selv.

    Forsikring: TrustedID tilbyr opp til $ 1 million i dekning for ut-av-lomme kostnader du kan pådra deg hvis identiteten din er stjålet. Mistet lønn dekning maxes ut etter 4 uker eller totalt $ 5.000. Forsikringen, som tjenesten kaller en "garanti", også dekker administrative utgifter du pådrar deg i å rydde opp ID-tyveri (som porto og kjøpe flere kreditt-rapporter, med en grense på 6 rapporter i 12 måneder) og juridisk forsvar avgifter til godkjent advokat.

    Penger stjålet fra bankkontoen din og andre direkte tap er utelukket fra garantien. Tapt lønn for selvstendig næringsdrivende ser ikke ut til å være dekket, men ansatte kan bli refundert for ferie eller personlige dager treffes for å løse ID-tyveri. Du må varsle tjenesten innen 30 dager oppdage identitetstyveri for å være kvalifisert for forsikringsdekning. I motsetning til enkelte ID-tyveri tjenester, betyr TrustedID ikke ut til å kreve at du bruker noen annen forsikring som kan dekke ditt tap før forsikrings spark i. Imidlertid ikke forsikringen ikke dekker ID tyveri hendelser som skjedde før du abonnerer på tjenesten.

    Priser: Planer koster $ 14,99 i måneden eller $ 125 per år (. $ 10,42 / mnd) for enkeltpersoner; familie planer som dekker to voksne (pluss "barn" og "andre slektninger som bor i din husholdning") er $ 27,99 per måned, eller $ 240 per år ($ 20 per måned).

Planer fornye automatisk.

    2. Experian sin ProtectMyID

    Hver av de tre store kreditt-byråer - Experian, Equifax, og Transunion - tilbyr sin egen beskyttelse mot identitetstyveri service. Vi valgte tilfeldig å evaluere Experian tallet.

    Kreditt-rapporter, kreditt score og kreditt overvåking: Experian sin beskyttelse mot identitetstyveri tjeneste, kalt ProtectMyID, gir deg online tilgang til din Experian kreditt rapporten og scorer. Den overvåker dine Experian, Equifax og Transunion kreditt-rapporter og varsler deg om potensielt bedragersk aktivitet som nye kreditt eller lån kontoer eller nye forespørsler om kreditt.

The Corliss Group Latest Tech Review: New Algorithm Finds the Most Beautiful - 1 views

  •  
    The way we navigate in cities has been revolutionized in the last few years by the advent of GPS mapping programs. Enter your start and end location and these will give you the shortest route from A to B.

    That's usually the best bet when driving, but walking is a different matter. Often, pedestrians want the quietest route or the most beautiful but if they turn to a mapping application, they'll get little help.

    That could change now thanks to the work of Daniele Quercia at Yahoo Labs in Barcelona, Spain, and a couple of pals. These guys have worked out how to measure the "beauty" of specific locations within cities and then designed an algorithm that automatically chooses a route between two locations in a way that maximizes the beauty along it. "The goal of this work is to automatically suggest routes that are not only short but also emotionally pleasant," they say.

    Quercia and co begin by creating a database of images of various parts of the center of London taken from Google Street View and Geograph, both of which have reasonably consistent standards of images. They then crowdsourced opinions about the beauty of each location using a website called UrbanGems.org.

    Each visitor to UrbanGems sees two photographs and chooses the one which shows the more beautiful location. That gives the team a crowdsourced opinion about the beauty of each location. They then plot each of these locations and their beauty score on a map which they use to provide directions.

    The idea here is that the user enters a start and end location and an algorithm then finds the most beautiful route, rather than the shortest one. It does this by searching through every possible route, adding the beauty scores for each and choosing the one that ranks highest.

Growing fraud detection firm latest tech firm to redesign in Big Pink - 1 views

The Corliss Group Review Growing fraud detection firm latest tech to redesign in Big Pink

    The Corliss Group Latest Tech Review - The leadership team at online fraud detection firm iovation had a choice to make: remodel their existing 18,500 square feet in U.S. Bancorp Tower or move into new, bigger space to accommodate its growing 88-person Portland team.

    They decided to stay, work with their landlord and retool what was previously a very traditional office.
    The new space should hold about 100 people, which is what the company's Portland team is projected to be by the end of this year. The company currently has about 90 people worldwide. The company also expects business to grow 30 percent this year over last year.

    iovation is the latest tech firm to reimagine what a workspace within a corporate tower can look like. The others were New Relic, SurveyMonkey and Webtrends.

    For iovation, the company is reducing the size of workspace cubicles, from roughly eight feet by eight feet to six feet by six feet - though Vice President of Operations and co-founder Molly O'Hearn assures that they will still be roomy. The cubicle walls are also coming down in height allowing for more of an open feel and more sight lines.

    Walls for offices and conference rooms around perimeter will also now incorporate glass so people will be able to see in and see the view from the 32-story perch.

    "We're taking advantage of the views and being efficient," said CEO and co-founder Greg Pierson.
    The company is also paying attention to the amenities in the kitchen - which employees said is an important aspect of the office - and doubling the number of conference rooms.

    While the work is occurring the company has decamped to another floor in the building. The team expects to be back in the space by mid-August. The company has more than 2 billion unique Internet devices in its knowledge base and from a production standpoint the temporary move hasn't been a problem.

    Corliss Tech Review Group Study: External audits not an effective tool for against fraud

    Investors, corporate executives and analysts depend on external audits to maintain honesty in business organizations. However, a fresh study shows audits are .very poor at exposing fraud. In contrast, the study states more than 200% of frauds are uncovered by chance.

    That is one of the findings released recently in the "Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse" study by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, which is considered the world's biggest anti-fraud organization.

    "You should never put the obligation on someone else to keep your surroundings neat," said ACFE faculty member Evy Poumpouras, formerly an agent in the U.S. Secret Service. She stated that internal controls are deemed more significantly effective in exposing fraud as well as preventing it beforehand.

    The report was based on examinations of 1,483 fraud cases as reported by the Certified Fraud Examiners who had investigated the cases.

    "The evaluation of these fraud cases offers important lessons on how fraud is perpetrated, how it is spotted and how organizations can minimize the potential to such danger," ACFE President James Ratley stated in the introduction to the report.

    From the study's estimates, the typical organization loses 5% of its revenues yearly to fraud. Which could mean a worldwide phenomenon to the tune of $3.7 trillion, the report claims. But as appalling as the number might appear, Poumpouras says it is not surprising.

    "Numerous other cases remain uncovered," she said.

    Almost 50% of the fraud cases investigated was committed in the United States, where the most stringent anti-fraud controls are often applied. Yet, the greatest damages were uncovered in Eastern Europe and Central and Western. The median loss in those areas amounted to $383,000, compared to that of the US at only $100,000.

    Workers and junior managers perpetrated the biggest percentage of fraud, with business owners and senior officers sharing only 19% of the offenses. But rather as expected, the study highlighted the fact that the higher up on the ladder the fraudster sat, the bigger the losses.

    Nevertheless, financial fraud is for the most part hard to detect, Poumpouras stated, since the offenders have less of a psychological attachment to the crime they are committing than they do for other forms of illegal acts.

    "Often, the person does not touch or see the money but rather thumbing reports or files. It does not feel as real," said Poumpouras, who has been engaged in many investigations covering financial fraud.

    "Forcing people to admit to committing financial crime is much harder than forcing them to admit to homicide," she said, which could explain why external audits can be next to useless.

    The study reports auditors uncovered only 3% of the fraud offenses reported in the previous year, compared to 7% identified by accident.

    "While separate audits provide an essential aid in organizational management," the report says, "our findings show that they should not be totally depended upon as the organizations' main anti-fraud strategy."

    Rather, the study suggests what it refers to as "proactive detection procedures", including in-house hotlines that provide workers a way to become anonymous informants of fraud and maintain honesty in the ranks. Continue reading…

Your MasterCard Suspended for Fraud? It's a Scam by The Corliss Group Latest Tech Review - 1 views

The Corliss Group Latest Tech Review Your MasterCard Suspended for Fraud? It's a Scam.
started by Franchezca Mindaine on 27 May 14 no follow-up yet

    Scammers are calling unsuspecting consumers on the telephone to steal credit card numbers. If you get such a call, just hang up and do not engage.

    Cyber-criminals employ various tools and techniques to launch their scams, including malware, hacked websites, and bots. They also like social engineering, because it is so effective. When you get an email from a friend stranded in a foreign country needing some money to get home, your first instinct is to help. When you are surfing the Web and you suddenly see a pop-up window telling you your computer has been infected, you get nervous at the prospect of losing all your important files. And when someone calls your phone claiming you-or your loved ones-are about to be arrested because of overdue taxes, it's hard not to panic.

    Let's face it, fear sells.

    "Probably the best way to react is to relax first. High pressure situations are exactly how social engineers get you to react too quickly," Robert Hansen, head of WhiteHat Labs at WhiteHat Security, told SecurityWatch in an earlier conversation about phishing scams.

    Give Me Your Card Number

    In this scam, I received a call over the weekend on my cell phone informing me my prepaid MasterCard had been suspended due to fraud. I pressed "1 to unlock the card," and was told to enter my 16-digit card number. Sadly, I didn't have a spare prepaid MasterCard (I keep a few on hand for testing purposes) handy, so I couldn't continue. It was pretty clear by this point that this was a scam, since I don't have a prepaid MasterCard.

    A less paranoid-and more trusting consumer-may have thought, oh, maybe the caller means my regular MasterCard. Here is a tip: If an automated system calls asking for your card information, it's probably a scam. Don't disclose card numbers or other account information during these types of calls.

    I got another call this morning, at way-too-early 6 AM, where a computerized voice said, "This is an official notification from NetSpend. Your prepaid MasterCard has been locked due to suspicious activity. Press one to unlock it." I still didn't have a test card, so when I got to the point where it needed my card number, I pressed 0 and a few other keys to see if I could get a human on the line. The call didn't sound like a recorded message, but rather that the caller was using text-to-speech software.

    Another tip: if you don't have a prepaid card, don't put in your debit card info. If you never use your debit card and get a call about a problem with the card, be skeptical. Even if you do use the card, hang up and just call the financial institution directly.

    No human operator ever answered, so I hung up. I went out and got a card this afternoon, to be ready for the next call. I am actually looking forward to this.

    How the Scam Works

    A quick search on ripoff.com, bbb.org, and other consumer advocacy sites show a handful of complaints from earlier this month from users who received similar calls. The format of the call differs slightly, and the bank name changes, but in general the recipient is directed to "press 1" to fix the issues with their card, and then to hand over information such as the card number and PIN, and sometimes even the expiration date and security code.

    Scammers are calling to get your card information and PIN so they can withdraw money from the account. The proper response is to hang up, call the bank or financial institution directly, and verify their information is secure.

    My caller ID showed the call from 10000000000, which would indicate the caller was spoofing a call over VoIP. According to forum postings on 800notes.com, the scam uses a variety of numbers, with area codes such as 223 and 323. It's not clear how the caller got my number. It could have been random, or it could have been bought off mailing lists or hacked from a database.

    Protect your information. If you get a call asking you to enter your card number-no matter what the reason is-just hang up and call your bank directly. Don't finance the criminal's shopping spree.

The Corliss Group Review on Research and Markets: Global Anti-money Laundering (AML) Software Market 2014-2018 with Fiserv

    Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gzs68x/global_antimoney) has announced the addition of the "Global Anti-money Laundering (AML) Software Market 2014-2018 with Fiserv, NICE Actimize, Norkom Technologies, SAS Institute Dominating" report to their offering.

    The Global AML Software market will grow at a CAGR of 11% over the period 2013-2018.

    The service providers are applying an analytical approach to meet AML compliance and there are different methodologies applied by service providers to identify suspicious activity reports. However, some traditional approaches such as linear regression analysis generate false alerts along with suspicious activity reports, which are not worth investigating. On the other hand, predictive analytics enables enterprises to reduce the false alerts by 60 to 70 percent and reduces the compliance cost of adopting AML software. Predictive analytics is also a better methodology because it can encode more information about an account or customer's activity.

    According to the report, most people are increasingly shifting toward debit cards as a preferred mode of payment because of the ease of use. This leads to data breach by criminals to access huge amounts and acquire debit card information. Large-scale data breaches of major retail chains are currently common. If there are a number of debit frauds against an enterprise customer satisfaction is not met and thus they stop availing the service. To save customers loss and prevent customers from becoming the victim of such activities, many enterprises are deploying AML software.

    Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the inconsistency in the data because of the data in enterprises are collected by the different departments and proper functioning of AML software requires consistency in data.

    The Global AML Software market can be divided into four segments:

    *     Internal Spending

    *     Software

    *     Services

    *     Hardware.

    Key Vendors

    *     Fiserv Inc.

    *     NICE Actimize Inc.
