Business-Friendly Cyber Info-Sharing Bill Circulating Congress
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence could consider in the coming days
new cyberthreat information sharing legislation that's seen as more to the
liking of the business community than the measure proposed by President Obama. A
discussion draft of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015, or CISA,
being circulated by the leaders of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence -
Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. -
provides broader liability protections to businesses that voluntarily share
cyberthreat information with the government and less stringent privacy
protections than legislation offered by Obama and introduced last month by Sen.
Tom Carper, D-Del.
Feds Indict Three in "One of the Largest Reported Data Breaches in U.S. history"
U.S. federal prosecutors in Atlanta today unsealed indictments against two
Vietnamese men and a Canadian citizen in connection with what's being called
"one of the largest reported data breaches in U.S. history." The government
isn't naming the victims in this case, but all signs point to the 2011 hack of
Texas-based email marketing giant Epsilon. The government alleges the defendants
made more than $2 million blasting out spam to more than one billion email
addresses stolen from several email service providers (ESPs), companies that
manage customer email marketing on behalf of major corporate brands. Epsilon
didn't name which ESPs were impacted, but the voluminous complaints from
consumers about spam indicated that those ESPs served a broad range of major
companies, including JP Morgan Chase, U.S. Bank, Barclays, Kroger, McDonalds,
Walgreens, and Honda, to name but a few.
UK - 57 Alleged Hackers Arrested in Cybercrime-Targeting
"Strike Week" - including suspect in U.S. Defense Dept. hack
British police announced that over the course of this week,
they launched more than a dozen cybercrime raids, which included the arrest of a
man who's been accused of launching a June 15, 2014, hack attack that penetrated
a U.S. Department of Defense network. The man, age 23 - who has not been named
by police - was arrested in Sutton Coldfield, England, on March 4 by officers
from Britain's National Cyber Crime Unit. The arrest was made as part of
a cybercrime-targeting "strike week" launched by NCA officers - together with
police from England, Scotland and Wales, as well as London's Metropolitan Police
Service. The effort comprised 25 raids and resulted in 57 arrests. The raids
were launched in coordination with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation as
well as the U.S. Defense Department's Defense Criminal Investigation Service.
Point-of-Sale Vendor NEXTEP Probes Breach - Pattern of fraud found on credit
cards used Zoup eatery chain NEXTEP Systems, a Troy, Mich.-based
vendor of point-of-sale solutions for restaurants, corporate cafeterias,
casinos, airports and other food service venues, was recently notified by law
enforcement that some of its customer locations have been compromised in a
potentially wide-ranging credit card breach, KrebsOnSecurity has learned. The
acknowledgement came in response to reports by sources in the financial industry
who spotted a pattern of fraud on credit cards all recently used at one of
NEXTEP'S biggest customers: Zoup, a chain of some 75 soup eateries spread across
the northern half of the United States and Canada. Last week, KrebsOnSecurity
reached out to Zoup after hearing from financial industry sources about fraud
patterns indicating some sort of card compromise at many Zoup locations.
Biometric security on the rise
Biometric security is on a sharp growth curve, according to a number of recent
research reports. The technology is on the rise in large part due to the fact
that many mobile users have become comfortable using tools such as fingerprint
identification for access. Juniper Research, in a recent report, says more than
770 million biometric authentication applications will be downloaded each year
by 2019. That's up from just 6 million this year. The report cites Apple's
combination of its Touch ID authentication to tokenization in NFC payments as an
example of high profile adoptions of biometrics. Another report, by Acuity
Market Intelligence, forecasts that rising demand for smartphones, tablets and
wearable mobile devices that incorporate biometrics will drive a global market
of 2.5 billion users with nearly 4.8 billion biometric devices by 2020. Within
three years, biometrics will become a standard feature on smartphones as well as
other mobile devices, Acuity says.
Lumber Liquidators Scandal A Short-Selling Wake-Up Call For Retailers
Last week, a scandal struck flooring retailer Lumber Liquidators that is pushing
the discussion of how much retailers need to know about their products to the
front of the headlines. An
episode of "60 Minutes" featured an exposé on the company, which has been
accused of selling Chinese-made laminate flooring that contains levels of
potentially carcinogenic formaldehyde exceeding the legal limit in California.
Lumber Liquidators CEO Tom Sullivan claims that the negative attention was the
work of short-sellers and lawyers looking to sue the company. Short-sellers were
in fact the people to first bring attention to the issue. According to a
Bloomberg article, hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson, who was shorting the
stock, pitched the story to "60 Minutes".
PetSmart to go private
PetSmart's investors have officially approved a buyout of the company by a
private equity firm, setting up a payout to stockholders of $83 per share. In
December, PetSmart announced it accepted a bid on the company for $8.7 billion.
The company expects the transaction to close on March 11. The buyout means
PetSmart will become a private company. PetSmart is the largest specialty pet
retailer in the United States, with 1,404 pet stores in the United States,
Canada and Puerto Rico.
Cache will cease operations
A little more than a month after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection,
specialty women's apparel retailer Cache is throwing in the towel. Advisory and
valuation services provider Great American Group (GA), which won a bid for
Cache's assets at a March 3 bankruptcy auction, has begun
"going-out-of-business" sales for all Cache's retail locations in the U.S., the
Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

Largest mall in the nation proposed for Miami area - $4B
cost - 25K jobs
The company that owns and runs the largest mall in America wants to build an
even bigger one in northwestern Miami-Dade, a roughly 200-acre entertainment
complex with submarines, a Legoland, sea lions and an artificial ski slope.
Backed by the owner of Minnesota's Mall of America, American Dream Miami is
proposed for land at the intersection of Florida's Turnpike and Interstate 75
near Miami Lakes. It's projected to cost as much as $4 billion to build and
employ 25,000 people once opened, more than enough to give it Miami-Dade's
largest private-sector payroll. It also would bring the largest mall in the
United States to what's now pastureland in Miami's congested suburbs, using
vacant real estate flanked by two of the region's busiest highways.

Shoplifters Given a Choice - Pay $320 or Deal With the Police
Having worked in retail, I can tell you that shoplifters are a worker's worst
nightmare. Catching someone in the act can be difficult especially when most
stores have policies that prohibit employees from approaching and accusing a
suspected thief, out of concern for their employees' safety. That can lead to
lost merchandise and repeat offenders. But, now, a Utah based company has an
alternative. It gives shoplifters a choice: sign an admission of guilt and pay
$320 for an online theft education course or the store will call the cops.
Corrective Education Company (CEC) is a private loss prevention company that was
started in 2010 by two Harvard business graduates looking to give shoplifters a
second chance instead of a rap sheet. It's starting to gain popularity with
retailers because it doesn't charge for the service, but instead operates solely
on the funds generated from offenders. Retailers can collect a small cut of CEC's $320 fee for every offender to whom they present the option to sign up for
the program. According to CEC's VP for account management, some big name
retailers already using its services including Bloomingdale's, Burlington Coat
Factory, DSW, Whole Foods, and H&M.

eBay's Global Asset Protection team helps Law Enforcement get IT Whizz 12 months
computer expert cost Sky TV almost 30,000 pounds ($45,307) after he exploited
his IT knowledge to sell pirated pay-per-view packages on eBay. University
graduate Aron Lees, 29, made 3,000 pounds ($4,530) a month after he tampered
with Sky decoder boxes so one legitimate account would work again and again in a
process known as 'card sharing'. He used his younger brother Sean's eBay account
to sell the "hacked" boxes - complete with one year subscriptions to Sky Premium
TV - for just 110 pounds ($166) a time. BSkyB investigators busted the bedroom
business empire after they posed as a customer to purchase a box from the
brothers and traced it to Aron's IP address following a tip-off from eBay
moderators. Sky calculated that they would have charged around 700 pounds for
each box with subscription for a year - meaning they lost around 590 pounds
($891) on each eBay sale. Over 338 transactions between March and December 2013,
a total of 28,176 pounds ($42,552) was deposited into qualified mechanic Sean's
bank account. He was given 12 months jail suspended for 18 months and ordered to
carry out 100 hours of unpaid work. A separate hearing will take place to
determine how much money he must pay back.

Banks Changing Apple Pay Procedures After Fraud, Consultants Say
Some banks have begun to make changes in how they activate customers'
credit-card accounts to use Apple Inc.'s new mobile-payment system after reports
of fraudulent transactions, according to industry consultants. The effort is an
attempt to thwart criminals who have been typing stolen credit-card numbers into
Apple Pay and trying to make purchases with their iPhones. Some banks are now
requiring users to call them to activate Apple Pay, to ensure that their
identities haven't been stolen.
US consumers consider Bitcoin more secure than mobile wallets, survey finds
In a survey of 1,400 online consumers across the US, a study found that
respondents consider mobile wallets and applications the least secure form of
payment, ranking behind digital currencies such as Bitcoin. Asked which forms of
payment they feel is most secure, the majority of respondents picked cash (56
percent), followed by credit card (22 percent), debit card (16 percent),
cryptocurrency (3 percent), check (2 percent), and mobile wallet or app (1
percent). Despite little confidence in mobile wallet security, the study
observed a significant jump in the use of mobile payments. Forty percent of
respondents said they have used a mobile payment application in the past year,
up from 8 percent in 2013. Among those who have used mobile payments in the past
year, 45 percent have used Google Wallet, 41 percent have used a banking payment
app, and one-third have used a retailer payment app.
Wal-Mart Open To Accepting Apple Pay
Former Amazon employee stole over $18K from 315 customer gift cards, thought
thefts were untraceable Police said an employee transferred more than
$18,000 from Amazon.com customers' gift cards into her accounts, thinking the
thefts could not be traced. Amanda Budurka, who worked at I-Gourmet on Delaware
Avenue where Amazon rents space, provided a signed statement and admitted
stealing from the gift cards for more than a year, police said. Martin
Rakaczewski, loss prevention manager for Amazon.com in Breinigsville, said
Budurka has been stealing gift cards from the company's fulfillment office in
I-Gourmet. Budurka began working as temporary employee in April 2011 and was
promoted to an Amazon associate in August of that year. Rackaczewski said Amazon
investigator Sheila Hamm contacted him on Feb. 23 after receiving calls from
customers whose gift cards were either not working or had no funds applied to
them. The cards were tracked and Budurka was identified as the person who
shipped them. Between September 2013 and Feb. 25 a total of $18,259 from 315
cards were transferred to two Amazon accounts Budurka had opened. When
questioned by Rackaczewski on Feb. 24, Budurka admitted stealing the funds. In a
signed statement she said, "I have been taking gift cards since around Christmas
time two years ago when it was brought to my attention that they were
untraceable by another associate."

manager on Feb. 23.

is dead after a shooting in southwest Atlanta. The shooting happened inside a
store called the West End Food Mart and Grocery near the corner of Lee Street
and Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard. Police said a man in his mid-20s was shot
in the face. Sunday, police identified the victim as Martrell Gay, 25, of
Atlanta. Investigators believe Gay was a customer at the store. "We're looking
through surveillance footage trying to see what it captured, but it appears
there were multiple people inside the store at the time," said Lt. Charles
Hampton, with the Atlanta Police Department. Gay died at Grady Memorial Hospital
shortly after he was transported there. Even though police may have some
surveillance to help identify the shooter, they're asking for the public's help.

3 arrested in West Towne shooting, 1 also suspected in attempted homicide
Three people have been arrested in the investigation of a shooting at West Towne

and charged with recklessly endangering safety with a dangerous weapon,
attempted first-degree intentional homicide, receiving a stolen firearm,
obstructing an officer and three counts of possession of a firearm by a felon.

endangering safety with a dangerous weapon, possession of firearm as a felon and
bail jumping. Jacob Greer, 17, was charged with obstructing an officer. Koval
said the Russett Road shooting is most concerning, because an 18-year-old was
shot repeatedly. A criminal complaint states that the victim in the Russet Road
shooting was shot in the face and arm. He was shot again in the back when he
tried to run away.
Suspicions surround last week's $5M Gold Heist - Truckers questioned in what may
have been an 'inside job' Detectives suspect the $4.8 million gold
heist Sunday on Interstate 95 may be an "inside job," they said in a search
warrant application. Sheriff Calvin Woodard was reluctant to label the robbery
suspicious but admitted that some of the circumstances surrounding the robbery
were suspicious. Woodard publicly detailed how a mechanic couldn't find anything
wrong with the truck after the victims had reported mechanical issues. They had
also reported the smell of gasoline; that couldn't be detected either, Woodard
said. It was also revealed in the press conference that the only thing that
stood between the three robbers and $4.8 million in gold was a small Master lock
that anyone could buy at a Lowe's. That information received a chuckle from the
media in attendance.

Myrtle Beach man arrested after attempted theft, physical altercation with Walmart LP
Myrtle Beach police charged a man with shoplifting after chasing him outside a

fiber snack bars, and a bath sponge among other items, and pushed store
employees who tried to stop him. Marlon William Chestnut, 21, was arrested once

Roommates fake Git-N-Go robbery in Pleasant Hill, IA
A pair of roommates were charged with third degree theft after staging a robbery
at a Pleasant Hill Git-N-Go in February. Kieran Tyrell Davis, 19, and store
clerk Eric Bernard Simmons, 19, faked a robbery for a surveillance camera at the
Git-N-Go said Officer Adam Choat. Simmons, who worked at the store, wrote a
statement for police explaining how Davis forced him onto the floor and demanded
money. Additionally, Simmons wrote the direction he saw the suspect's vehicle
flee. Upon further investigation however, Pleasant Hill Detective Ron Zimmerman
noticed discrepancies between the store's surveillance video and Davis's story.
Zimmerman didn't see Davis's lips give commands, and Simmons didn't look out to
see which way Davis fled. Additionally, the detective said it appeared Simmons
volunteered extra money, and he pointed out money that fell to Davis.
Man used electric cart to steal over $4,000 of goods from Gainesville Target -
Reason for stealing? He's "gotta eat" An Alabama man was arrested in
Gainesville on Saturday after police say he twice entered a Target retail store
and used an electric cart to make off with thousands of dollars in merchandise.
Lee Andrew Kennedy, 55, of Phenix City, Alabama, entered the Target store at
about 3 p.m. on Saturday, according to a Gainesville Police Department report.
Once inside, Kennedy secured an electric cart and grabbed a gray storage bin. He
then drove the cart around the store and began filling the bin with more than
$2,000 worth of items, the report said. Once he had collected the stolen goods,
Kennedy drove the cart past the registers and left the store. Kennedy was not
caught in the act of shoplifting the merchandise at that time, but he returned
about six hours later and again drove a cart around the store placing items into
a bin, this time attempting to make away with almost $2,400 in stolen
merchandise. As Kennedy attempted to drive past the registers and exit the
store, he was stopped by a Target loss prevention employee and a GPD officer.
According to the report, Kennedy told the arresting officer that he stole the
merchandise because "I gotta eat."

mere phrase not reinforced by actions.
