Today’s Cyberthreats: Mac Apps Malware, Estonia’s Cyber Army
Each weekday morning, TechNewsDaily’s colleagues at SecurityNewsDaily give us a roundup on what’s worrying the guardians of cyberspace. Here’s what’s happening today.
Mac Apps Malware? Apple’s brand-new Mac Apps Store doesn’t check to see if the person using an app actually paid for it. This opens up a second-hand market, and a huge opportunity for hackers to exploit.
Estonia’s Cyber Army: The tiny Baltic nation, already crippled once by Russian hackers, is forming what it calls the Cyber Defense League to ward off future attacks.
Miley’s Hacker Busted: The man who allegedly posted photos of Miley Cyrus in her underwear in 2008 has now been nabbed for a more serious crime: having 200 stolen credit-card numbers.
Your iTunes for Sale: Chinese hackers are selling off Western iTunes accounts, complete with $200 lines of credit, for $30 a pop. “Of course they’re stolen,” one sales rep said.
