It's getting frustrating being a Nigerian..

It's another annoying and frustrating moment.

Went online to purchase a product for my website. Guess what?

Nigeria is the notable only country deleted or eliminated from the list.

Now let's see how this affects me and us.
#1. It affects my business, completely confused on what next.

#2. It affects my immediate environment : if my fam depends on me and I can't purchase a product for my website - work - and make money then lack is on the way.
#3. It affects the economy. No flow of cash which starts from the immediate environment.

#4. It affects emotional health being.

#5. It affects moralistic living - how many times will one regret being a Nigerian?

I never chose to be a Nigerian...

Phishing data analysis can provide an insight into victims and discreet campaign targeting tactics.📊

The following data has been extracted from multiple campaigns from the same SMS based phishing campaign targeting UK victims.📲


#phishing #security #cyber Image
There is a total of 433 victims data analyzed in the research; however, not all fields were submitted or valid so total data ranges will vary throughout. Image
Chart 1 - Age of impacted victims 🎂

The year of birth for the victims with the most impacted being aged between 21-30yrs old. Notably it is not just elderly people who get impacted by phishing which is often assumed.

The second most impacted are victims aged 31-40yrs old. Image

QUESTION: The terrorist responsible for the #Pensacolashooting on 6 Dec, 2019 had been linked to Al Qaida for almost a decade. We asked Hans Jakob Schindler @FightExtremism, "What does this say about Al Qaida's current activities in the 'West'?" Follow this thread for the answer.
ANSWER: "The newly obtained evidence form the two phones of the perpetrator apparently show not only his long standing association with AQAP (at least since 2015) but that he planned and prepared the attack for a long time, potentially years.
This demonstrates that AQAP remains the al-Qaida affiliate that is most geared towards attacks outside the immediate conflict zone, in particular attacks on US, European and other Western targets.

New National Security Strategy of #Poland is quite a solid and healthy document, with an adequate understanding of the current and near-future threats. it identifies the "neo-imperial policy" of #Russia as the most serious threat, "pursued also by means of military force". 1/13
2/13 It warns of an outbreak of a conflict "originating from a violent escalation as a result of an incident" due to the #Russia/n "below the threshold of war" activities that could provoke such a conflict, including an international one.
3/13 The document explicitly highlights the increase in internal tensions within the #EU/#NATO as well as actions undertaken by external entities as a "noticeable risk of undermining the coherence of the positions and actions of the member states of NATO and the EU".

Hackers spearphished U.S. government agency with North Korea-related content last year

The dates match up with a period when tensions mounted over flagging denuclearization talks between the Trump administration and Kim Jong-un’s regime.… #cyber
The contents of the emails, which were sent with malicious files attached, touched on North Korean geopolitical topics, such as the possibility of a dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang or Russian-North Korean trade issues.
The report does not say whether the spearphishing attempts were successful.

#OTD in 1988, a graduate student launched the first major cyberattack on the internet—later dubbed the Morris Worm—delaying emails and slowing military and university functions to a crawl.
Within 24 hours, the #cyber worm hit an estimated 6,000 of the approximately 60,000 computers then connected to the internet, prompting victims to disconnect their computers from the network or wipe their systems.
The Morris Worm drove developers to create vital computer intrusion detection software, but it also inspired a new generation of hackers who continue to threaten our digital systems. Learn how to protect your computer from modern-day cyberattacks at

Heres Aharon Almog-Assoulin, a retired Israeli security official who until recently served on the town council in a suburb of #TelAviv. He was one of the undercover agents used by #BlackCube hired by #NSOGroup to #spy on #CitizenLab journalists exposing #Pegasus among other jobs.
Heres a partial list of #cybersecurity firms linked directly to #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup that targeted Indian journalists and activists using #Pegasus. Almost all of them spawned out of Israeli intelligence #Unit8200. #WhatsApp #WhatsAppSpywareRow
Acc to 2016 price list, #NSOGroup charges customers $650,000 to hack 10 devices on top of $500,000 installation fee. If 41 Indians were targeted it will be 4 times the fee + installation. That comes to a whopping 31,00,000 USD equals 21,96,80,725.00 INR. Thanks to @Kodungolan737

#Pegasus was created by Israeli #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup whose parent company Francisco Partners also owns #CrossMatch contracted by #UIDAI for #Aadhaar. This was revealed by us already in 2017. Took almost 2 years for Indian media to catchup. #RIP…
Hopefully @Swamy39 alerted the PMO as promised regarding this threat from Israeli #cyber weapons firm #NSOGroup that created spying tool #Pegasus and whose sister concern with links to #CIA was awarded #Aadhaar contract.
Above article was written in 2017. Blackstone made a deal to buy NSO Group but was dropped after heavy protests. So backed by Novalpina Capital stakes were bought back by NSO Group in Feb 2019. The #Aadhaar contract and the spying happened when Francisco Partners owned NSO Group.

Die #IT-Umgebung des indischen #AKW's Kudankulam wurde nicht nur gehackt, sondern als Command and Control Server benutzt.

Hoffentlich war die #OT nicht auch öffentlich am Netz!

#KRITIS Sektor #Energie #nuclear #nuclearsafety #Resilienz #Cyber #Security

Zur Unterscheidung:

IT sind Informationstechnische Systeme (#PC #Laptop #Windows #Office, #Buchhaltung...)

OT sind Operative Systeme (#ICS #SCADA #SPS #HMI #PLC #Steuertechnik...)
Angemessener Stand der Technik #SdT wie in #KRITIS gefordert wurde offenbar im #AKW nicht eingehalten.

Strikte #Trennung zwischen #OT-Steuersystemen und #IT ist eine wesentliche #Sicherheitsmaßnahme!
