A US military contractor was allegedly hacked by those associated with the Chinese military. The company reportedly ignored signs of security breaches, allowing hackers to access military technology and classified documents for three years.

The company is known for its contributions to national security – including software used by US forces in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Emails about Boston Marathon explosions may contain malware
Sadly, it’s no surprise that cybercriminals are using the tragic explosions that took place at the Boston Marathon to try to scam you. Beware of emails with subject lines such as “2 Explosions at Boston Marathon” or “Boston Explosion Caught on Video” even if the email appears to come from someone you know.

(April 8, 2013) The Cutwail botnet is sending out spam that attempts to infect Android devices with a Trojan horse program. The malware, which is being called Stels, also takes steps to infect other operating systems. When users click on the provided link in messages that appear to be from legitimate sources, such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a script checks to see if the user is on an Android device. If Android is detected, users are shown an Adobe Flash Update page, which installs the malware.

It should be noted that on 3 separate occasions we have received calls from a company with three separate phone number claiming to be from Google verifying business listings. The key to realizing that it's not Google is the fact that they use VOIP and that the person on the other end of the line ask who they are speaking with today. It appears as though these telemarketers are using Google maps to get numbers of business, they call and state that they are verifying Google business listings but it's a scam.

The massive Cutwail botnet has been pushing out spam containing malicious links in an attempt to spread Android malware, marking a significant milestone in the evolution of the mobile threat, security researchers have warned.
Dell SecureWorks discovered the new ‘Stels Trojan’, which can steal users’ contacts, text messages, install additional malware and make calls. Its delivery method is particularly rare for an Android threat – traditionally attackers have used official and unofficial app stores to push malware, disguised as legitimate apps.
