Cryptocurrency exchanges increasingly targeted by cyberattacks

Hacks on cryptocurrency exchanges seem to be on the rise.

Youbit, a cryptocurrency exchange in South Korea, filed for bankruptcy after losing 17% of its assets in the second cyberattack it has suffered in the last year. In April 2017, Youbit lost nearly 4,000 bitcoins in the first attack — worth about $5 million at the time of the theft but now valued at tens of millions of dollars.

Youbit has said that its customers’ cryptocurrency assets will be marked down to 75% of the full value and has stopped all trading in an attempt to minimize any further losses to the company and its customers.

Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA), the South Korean government agency responsible for internet security, linked the April cyberattack to North Korea, though there’s no word yet on who may be behind the most recent attack. Attacks on other cryptocurrency exchanges Bithumb and Coinis this year have also been blamed on North Korea.

Youbit is one of the smaller cryptocurrency exchanges in South Korea, while Bithumb has about 70% of the bitcoin trading market share in the country.

A different cryptocurrency exchange, EtherDelta, took to Twitter to alert its customers to a cyberattack on its systems.

EtherDelta shut down its site and services when it learned of the cyberattack. In its tweets, the exchange warned that its DNS server was compromised by malicious actors. Since the initial tweets, EtherDelta followed up Thursday morning saying it is “in the last step to bring the service back.”

EtherDelta is ranked as the 85th largest cryptocurrency exchange, according to CoinMarketCap. It is known for offering a selection of alternate cryptocurrencies before they become widely available and is only a cryptocurrency-to-cryptocurrency trading platform; customers cannot convert cryptocurrency holdings to fiat currencies through EtherDelta.

DNS hijacking attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges aren’t unusual either, as the websites of Classic Ether Wallet and Etherparty initial coin offering also both suffered similar attacks this year.

Hackers were also recently able to steal nearly 4,700 bitcoin, worth almost $80 million at the time of the theft, from Slovenian bitcoin exchange NiceHash.

In other news:

  • The facial recognition authentication technology in Windows 10, called Hello, can be bypassed with a simple photograph, according to security researchers. Matthias Deeg and Philipp Buchegger of the penetration testing company SySS GmbH, based in Tubingen, Germany, posted a warning about the issue with the Hello program earlier this week. “Due to an insecure implementation of the biometric face recognition in some Windows 10 versions, it is possible to bypass the Windows Hello face authentication via a simple spoofing attack using a modified printed photo of an authorized person,” the researchers explained. They listed seven different builds of four different versions of Windows 10 Pro that are affected by the vulnerability. The researchers also noted that enabling “enhanced anti-spoofing” on the system makes the spoofing attack less reliable, but it doesn’t actually stop the attack.
  • Facebook introduced a new anti-phishing security feature this week that enables users to check if the emails they receive from the company are legitimate. Facebook notifies its users when there is a suspicious login attempt or authentication activity on their account by sending them an email. Malicious actors often try to spoof those emails and trick Facebook users into clicking on a malicious link or going to a phishing site. Now, when users receive an email, they can log in to their Facebook account, check their security settings, and see any recent emails Facebook has sent them. If an email is listed as sent, they know what’s in their email inbox is legitimate. If no email is listed, users know that what they received is malicious. This new feature is the latest attempt by Facebook to prove that it takes user security seriously. The company came under fire when it was discovered that malicious actors tied to Russia placed thousands of ads on Facebook in an attempt to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Mark Zuckerberg followed up by saying, “We’re serious about preventing abuse on our platforms. We’re investing so much in security that it will impact our profitability. Protecting our community is more important than maximizing our profits.”
  • Five hackers were arrested in Romania this week due to ties with international ransomware attacks. Romanian law enforcement worked with authorities from the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the U.S., as well as Europol and security company McAfee to bring in the suspects who allegedly spread ransomware through Europe and the U.S. They seized hard drives, laptops, external storage devices, cryptocurrency mining tools and documents from the suspects’ houses in connection with strains of ransomware known as CTB-Locker or Critroini and Cerber. The suspects are not thought to be the authors of the ransomware, but distributors of it. CTB-Locker ransomware is known to be difficult to detect and often spreads through phishing messages. It was one of the first ransomware families that used the Tor network to hide its command-and-control infrastructure.

Prepare for an upgrade to Exchange 2016 with these pointers

As a new version of Exchange Server draws near, an enterprise with an on-premises messaging platform must decide…

“;
}
});

/**
* remove unnecessary class from ul
*/
$(“#inlineregform”).find( “ul” ).removeClass(“default-list”);

/**
* Replace “errorMessageInput” class with “sign-up-error-msg” class
*/
function renameErrorMsgClass() {
$(“.errorMessageInput”).each(function() {
if ($(this).hasClass(“hidden”)) {
$(this).removeClass(“errorMessageInput hidden”).addClass(“sign-up-error-msg hidden”);
} else {
$(this).removeClass(“errorMessageInput”).addClass(“sign-up-error-msg”);
}
});
}

/**
* when validation function is called, replace “errorMessageInput” with “sign-up-error-msg”
* before return
*/
function validateThis(v, form) {
var validateReturn = urValidation.validate(v, form);
renameErrorMsgClass();
return validateReturn;
}

/**
* DoC pop-up window js – included in moScripts.js which is not included in responsive page
*/
$(“#inlineRegistration”).on(“click”,”a.consentWindow”, function(e) {
window.open(this.href, “Consent”, “width=500,height=600,scrollbars=1”);
e.preventDefault();
});

if it will upgrade, migrate to the cloud or wait until the next major release of Exchange.

Many organizations that choose to stay on premises generally make this determination due to business requirements or to prolong a significant investment in infrastructure. Some enterprises might hold off on an upgrade to Exchange 2016 since Exchange 2019 isn’t far off — Microsoft says to expect a final release at the end of 2018.

If a business recently moved to Exchange 2013, it may prefer to stay on premises until this new version arrives. But the tradeoff is the company must wait a bit longer to get more modern features and enhanced security capabilities that can benefit the organization now.

But the choice to upgrade also brings challenges. Administrators must prepare their environment, their teams and end users for the substantial change.

So, what are some areas IT must prepare for when they consider an upgrade to Exchange 2016 from a legacy version? And, once the upgrade is done, what can they do to ensure they can adequately support the platform?

Plan and define the Exchange 2016 requirements

Whenever administrators look to upgrade the messaging platform, they should right-size for the latest Exchange environment to ensure the new version functions appropriately, and can accommodate changes and growth. Administrators can use several online resources, but most rely on a useful calculator from Microsoft. The Excel template, named the Exchange Server Role Requirements Calculator, offers IT a way to quickly assess the numerous requirements around the following critical areas:

  • Role requirements
  • Volume requirements
  • Backup requirements
  • Replication requirements
  • Storage design
  • Distribution
  • Activation scenarios

Get ready for the new Exchange Server

After designing the environment in the design phase, IT can then build it with the latest updates and patches on all the servers. Microsoft recommends either Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2016 as the server OS for Exchange 2016.

Make sure to update the .NET Framework; it is a crucial component of Exchange 2016 that determines the performance and reliability of Exchange functions.

If responsiveness is an issue after the upgrade to Exchange 2016, administrators will need to dig through the usual suspects. Check the storage and networking hardware configurations, power settings for the CPU or network interfaces, and review the sizing and architecture of the Exchange environment.

Keep up with monitoring and health checks

Once the business completes its upgrade to Exchange 2016, admins must keep the new environment healthy with regular maintenance. This doesn’t require expensive software — just due diligence. Many admins stick with simple tools, such as Paul Cunningham’s Health Report for an Exchange Server PowerShell script, System Monitor (Perfmon) counters and other utilities to keep an eye on Exchange logs and monitor the overall health of the system.

Use the right tools to troubleshoot other problems

Even with thorough planning and a flawless upgrade to Exchange 2016, administrators might face some issues or challenges with the system after deployment. Be prepared to troubleshoot any problems that could arise by gaining an understanding of PowerShell and Log Parser, and any Exchange-specific utilities that identify the source of errors or email issues.

Set up remote domains to control Exchange messaging

information can land in an external recipient’s inbox if the Exchange admin doesn’t use remote domains.

Most organizations have certain external recipients that users send mail to on a regular basis. Exchange Online administrators can control the types of messages and the email format sent to such recipients — and anyone else in the recipient’s domain — by defining a series of remote domains.

Remote domains enforce the organization’s mail flow preferences for recipients in specific domains. Those domains usually belong to a partner organization or vendor, although some businesses use them to restrict the delivery of messages deemed sensitive or undesirable. For example, the organization might block out-of-office messages or automatic replies from going to the remote domain.

A remote domain almost always corresponds to a domain name that does not belong to the organization. Technically speaking, an organization can own the domain name, but it cannot appear within Exchange’s list of accepted domains.

How to set up a remote domain

To configure remote domains, log in to the Exchange Admin Center, and go to Mail Flow > Remote Domains. To add a remote domain, click the Add icon, and then type a display name and the domain. In addition to individual subdomains, admins can also use wildcard characters. For example, to add the poseylab.com domain and its subdomains, enter *.poseylab.com, as shown below.

The settings here will override any configuration or rules a user sets up through a mail client, such as Outlook or Outlook Web App.

Wildcard characters
Admins can use wildcard characters to add subdomains.

The dialog box also contains a number of different options to configure the behavior of communications with recipients in the remote domain.

The first section relates to out-of-office automatic replies. The admin can adjust settings to control whether automatic replies go to recipients in the remote domain but also whether those recipients should receive external or internal replies.

Admins adjust the automatic replies portion, as well as automatic forwarding, for recipients in the remote domain.

In the message reporting section, the admin manages both delivery and nondelivery reports, as well as meeting forward notifications, for recipients in the remote domain.

Lastly, select whether to allow the use of Rich Text Format, the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension character set and the non-MIME character set. Admins can adjust these settings for users on other messaging platforms that cannot process certain formats and send out a winmail.dat attachment to a message as a result.

Save the changes to add the new remote domain. Admins can always adjust the rules for the remote domain by selecting it and clicking the Edit button.

The remote domains list also contains a default remote domain, which cannot be removed. Exchange uses the default domain to control what happens when mail is received from any domain not on the list of remote domains. Admins can edit the default remote domain, which has identical settings to the custom remote domain.

Support for Open AI Ecosystem Grows as Amazon Web Services Joins ONNX AI Format – Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit

It’s been an exciting few months! In September we introduced the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) format we created with Facebook to increase interoperability and reduce friction for developing and deploying AI. In October a number of companies that share our goals announced their support for ONNX.

Today Microsoft and Facebook are excited to share Amazon Web Services (AWS) is contributing ONNX support for Apache MXNet and joining the ONNX initiative. Amazon recognizes the benefits of the ONNX open ecosystem to enable developers working on deep learning to move between tools easily, choosing ones that are best suited for the task at hand. It’s great to have another major framework support ONNX: Caffe2, PyTorch, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, and now MXNet.

At Microsoft we believe bringing AI advances to all developers, on any platform, using any language, with an open AI ecosystem, will help ensure AI is more accessible and valuable to all. With ONNX and the rest of our Azure AI services, infrastructure and tools such as Azure Machine Learning and the recently announced Visual Studio Tools for AI, developers and data scientists will be able to deliver new and exciting AI innovations faster.

We invite others in the community to visit http://onnx.ai to learn more and participate in the ONNX effort. You can also get ONNX updates on Facebook and @onnxai on Twitter.
