Banks: Credit Card Breach at Home Depot
Multiple banks say they are seeing evidence that Home Depot stores may be the source of a massive new batch of stolen credit and debit cards that went on sale this morning in the cybercrime underground. Home Depot says that it is working with banks and law enforcement agencies to investigate reports of suspicious activity. Home Depot spokesperson Paula Drake confirmed that the company is investigating. can confirm we are looking into some unusual activity and we are working with our banking partners and law enforcement to investigate,” Drake said, reading from a prepared statement. “Protecting our customers’ information is something we take extremely seriously, and we are aggressively gathering facts at this point while working to protect customers. If we confirm that a breach has a occurred, we will make sure customers are notified immediately. Right now, for security reasons, it would be inappropriate for us to speculate further – but we will provide further information as soon as possible.” There are signs that the perpetrators of this apparent breach may be the same group of Russian and Ukrainian hackers responsible for the data breaches at Target, Sally Beauty and P.F. Chang’s, among others. The banks contacted by this reporter all purchased their customers’ cards from the same underground store – rescator[dot]cc — which on Sept. 2 moved two massive new batches of stolen cards onto the market.

Fast-Food Workers Seeking $15 Wage Are Planning Civil Disobedience Thursday in 100 cities- Near any of your stores?  The next round of strikes by fast-food workers demanding higher wages is scheduled for Thursday, and this time labor organizers plan to increase the pressure by staging widespread civil disobedience and having thousands of home-care workers join the protests. The organizers say fast-food workers — who are seeking a $15 hourly wage — will go on strike at restaurants in more than 100 cities and engage in sit-ins in more than a dozen cities. “On Thursday, we are prepared to take arrests to show our commitment to the growing fight for $15,” said Terrence Wise, a Burger King employee in Kansas City, Mo., and a member of the fast-food workers’ national organizing committee. At a convention that was held outside Chicago in July, 1,300 fast-food workers unanimously approved a resolution calling for civil disobedience as a way to step up pressure on the fast-food chains.  (Source nytimes.com)

Hired Hacker Gets His Own Credit Card Stolen in Retail Penetration Test - They'll be stealing numbers for years to come  While conducting a penetration test of a major Canadian retailer, Rob VandenBrink bought something from the store. He later found his own credit card number buried in its systems, a major worry. The retailer, which has hundreds of stores across Canada, otherwise had rock-solid security and was compliant with the security guidelines known as the Payment Card Industry's Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS), said VandenBrink, a consultant with the IT services company Metafore. But a simple configuration error allowed him to gain remote access. From there, he found the retailer was vulnerable to the same problem that burned Target, Neiman Marcus, Michaels, UPS Store and others: card data stored in memory that is vulnerable to harvesting by malicious software. So why are the data thieves winning? Security analysts say point-of-sale malware is neither new nor particularly sophisticated. But the latest security specification, PCI-DSS version 3.0, doesn't mandate that merchants use technologies that encrypt card data from the moment a person's card is swiped, referred to as point-to-point encryption. The PCI Security Standards Council, which develops PCI-DSS, did recommend last Wednesday that merchants switch to using that kind of encryption technology. But retailers often have long technology refresh cycles, so it could be five to seven years before most move to it. Fraud is expected to migrate from big retailers that resolve the weaknesses to smaller ones who have not. "In general, I think we are stuck with these point of sale breaches for many years," Litan said. (Source csoonline.com)

More Workers Are Claiming ‘Wage Theft’
Some federal and state officials agree. They assert that more companies are violating wage laws than ever before, pointing to the record number of enforcement actions they have pursued. They complain that more employers — perhaps motivated by fierce competition or a desire for higher profits — are flouting wage laws. Many business groups counter that government officials have drummed up a flurry of wage enforcement actions, largely to score points with union allies. If anything, employers have become more scrupulous in complying with wage laws, the groups say, in response to the much publicized lawsuits about so-called off-the-clock work that were filed against Walmart and other large companies a decade ago. David Weil, the director of the federal Labor Department’s wage and hour division, says wage theft is surging because of underlying changes in the nation’s business structure. (Source nytimes.com)

Another Target Stores Data Breach - Hacking Crew Figured Out Target's Red Card Sequencing System - Hundreds of Customers Impacted for $200K+  Postal inspectors served two search warrants in Stockton, California, Thursday seizing everything from computers inside the homes to the contents of vehicles outside. The search warrant affidavit details a sophisticated scheme to obtain Target Red Card holder's credit card numbers. Suspect Boone B. Khoonsrivong was tracked down in April. He allegedly told investigators he had a degree in computer science and had figured out Target's credit card sequencing system, which allowed him to make counterfeit cards. The cards were used to buy at least $200,000 in merchandise and may have compromised hundreds of customer's accounts. (Source news10.net)

The Downside of Mobile Commerce
Retailers love M-Commerce in all of its forms, whether it’s in-store barcode scanning, shopping while riding the subway or trying out a mobile payment methods. But an alert from Seeking Alpha points out the payments dark side of that mobile madness: the very real potential for huge margin shrinkage. The alert specifically focused on the popular price comparison mobile apps. The impact is that retailers—both physical and virtual—are feeling pressured to shave off however much they can from prices, to look better to the pricing bots and slashing margins in the effort.

The New Mafia: Battling Hackers Like Organized Crime  Recruiting and researching the hacker community could boost cybersecurity. Hackers can be tough opponents because the best of them share ideas online about new ways to attack networks and how to hide from law enforcement. Gangs in nations like Russia or China can be particularly resourceful and dangerous, especially since governments there are secretly sponsoring hackers' efforts and protecting them from international law enforcement, a former top FBI official tells U.S. News. To counter well-connected hackers, the FBI and other agencies have been treating them like “a new kind of organized crime” by chasing, researching and recruiting them with methods similar to those used against the Mafia.

The widespread number of POS terminals allowing admin privileges are dangerous for retailers - "Permissions are the low hanging fruit"  Remote management tools used to maintain payment systems are consistently targeted by attackers to infect systems. But one of the biggest problems, and the most serious lapses, is the widespread number of terminals configured to run with administrative privileges. Once a successful malware infection takes place, a remote attacker can do just about anything as long as they keep their activity stealthy. "Permissions are the low hanging fruit," says Nir Valtman of security testing firm Crowdome. "Memory scraping works because there are high privileges and it means that sometimes it allows specific read-write access for certain applications." Target was the victim of a custom version of the BlackPOS memory-scraping malware. (Source crn.com)
 

 


 

Partnership between police and local retailers nets organized retail thieves trafficking stolen property  Yesterday morning Renton police seized more than 200 cans of baby formula destined for the black market of Vietnam, following a year-long investigation. The formula, valued at about $5,400 is back in the hands of Safeway and QFC, just two of the many retailers targeted by thieves in recent months. The suspect, Nguyen Tran Nguyen, has been booked for Felony Investigation of Attempted Trafficking in Stolen Property 1st Degree. Utilizing undercover officers investigators contacted a couple, Whitney Dale-Benson and Christopher Gannon, who offered to sell investigators several cans of stolen baby formula. The investigators developed a relationship with the couple, known thieves in the area of Organized Retail Theft, who stole thousands of dollars’ worth of merchandise during the course of this investigation. The relationship led to the identification of Nguyen as the person who had previously purchased their stolen goods. During a five month period in 2014, Nguyen purchased from investigators more than $26,000 in what she believed to be stolen merchandise. She told investigators that she shipped the stolen baby formula to “her sister in Vietnam.” “Organized Retail Crime is a growing issue for retailers and for law enforcement. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Safeway and QFC; without their assistance this case would not have come to fruition,” said Chief Kevin Milosevich. Thanks Denny Dansak for this story!

They had a formula for making money. Cops have charged a Brooklyn couple with using phony credit cards to buy more than $100,000 worth of Enfamil baby formula from a wholesale chain and shipping it to China.
