one once again in Canada, a firm has been targeted by cybercriminals who wanted it personal data.

It was the Media Outlet Radio-Canada that informed us that the industrial insurance company Alliance had recently been hacked, thereby compromising the personal data of some of its customers.

the because of this hacking would be a long way off. Indeed, the industrial firm Alliance Financial Group, had announced that some of its representatives had been victims of a phishing attack. It is true that it is 3 cases have nothing in common, however this could have facilitated the attack that the group has recently undergone. Two of his employees had seen control of their e-mail to them. However it should be noted that the search for the hacker computer science is taking its course, and that there are chances are we'll be able to find him. that which is reassuring in this story is that apparently none of the data stolen ones does not appear to have been used at this time. And also on no site of the black market, this data is for sale, so we can estimate that the hacker had other intentions that security teams are looking to update.

the company did not hesitate to apologise to its customers who were affected by the cyberattack. In a letter of apology she "assures to take the situation very seriously (…) Measures additional requirements were quickly put in place to strengthen the protection personal information. ».

The company as to redeem itself will offer to its customers who have been affected by the attack exactly the number of 2864, a subscription package that will extend over 5 years related to the service of credits and insurance. New provisions have been updated and they will have special customer service to them. Interviewed on the issue Steve Waterhouse, who specializes in cybersecurity security, says, "The privacy commissioners of Quebec and Canada still have no teeth to make a legal intervention (…) i.e. lay charges based on investigations (…) Surveys often take too long to be done to be able to do something that makes sense or can actually make a positive change."

He 'believes that the authorities are taking too much of their time and not giving their all when this kind of problem is becoming more and more frequent. a set of mechanisms should be instituted that will not only protect but also investigate who is at the root of this disorder. Supported in his logic by the parliamentarian Gaetan Barrette who notes: "Data, whether it is public or private, is the same procedure and the same environment. As far as I am concerned, we have to deal with everything all at once now. »

U.S. accused of hacking Chinese group Huawei

Since last May, Chinese digital giant Huawei has accused Uncle Sam's country of trying to hack it several times.

The objective, he said, was for the government to infiltrate its system to monitor its economic activities.

You'll love it too: Chinese giant Huawei is allegedly involved in a hacking case in Africa

the In a statement on 3 September, Huawei said: "The Government of United States has used its political and diplomatic influence to make pressure on other states to ban Huawei's equipment."

the U.S. government, for its part, has not issued any denials either. We've got that he even confirms this accusation. For the government of Donald Trump, the measures taken against Huawei are normal, as it for its justification, the defence of national security. Let us not forget that the US President, very recently, had qualified the Chinese group saying that "This is a threat to national security. ». The obvious idea in the U.S. president is to take the company China hostage in the economic crisis between the United States and the China. Huawei, which suffers every day, continues to complain and each time: "None of the charges laid by the government U.S. have so far been proven. We strongly condemn the efforts U.S. government to discredit Huawei."

According to the Chinese firm's claims the U.S. government use methods legal for the purpose of intimidating and putting pressure on her. Indeed it mentions illegal detentions of its employees, unannounced searches without foundation or arrests at any point. "Searching, detaining and even unlawfully arresting Huawei employees" has become the daily lot of the Chinese giant's entourage.

that aggressive behavior of the U.S. government to the detriment of the Chinese group was all the more pronounced because of the recent scandal the patent theft of a Portuguese researcher by Huawei. Even if the flight denied, the shadow of suspicion still hangs over the Chinese giant that continues to suffer the attacks of the Americans.

concerning the case of the Portuguese researcher, the Chinese group had mentioned that the latter being one of his former employees had wanted to take advantage of the economic to extract money from him. This is all the more understandable given the time it took the researcher to denounce the theft of his patent.

The Chinese company claims to have filed a complaint against the US state because it, in addition to constantly sabotaging its work, has also launched a wave of hacker attacks on its computer system. She said Trump administration officials wanted to infiltrate her intranet network in order to spy on her. However on the Huawei side, no evidence is availabling to support this argument. it's much more like a Donald Trump technique, but to accuse you have to have evidence. The Chinese state, for its part, has not yet made any statements on the issue. We don't think he'd be happy if this case lasted that long. The witch hunt has lasted long enough.

the personal data that have been stolen and then published are made up of names, credit card numbers and geographic addresses or email addresses and other individual data. This information was supposed to be safe on the bank's website. Consequences MasterCard had to close the offending site.

the the victims of this hacking were, as they were, 'Priceless Specials', which allowed its holders to benefit from the bonuses, discounts or other ancillary services. After the data leak, it was laid bare some too personal information such as personal identifiers such as names and surnames, identification of location or email addresses posed too great a risk MasterCard's affected customers. Some data has been erased as announced MasterCard and the site corrupted by this hacking was also put out line.

The institution international banking has been careful to contact all the victims and has reassured that this matter will be resolved. She informed that she was not neglecting no point in this case and what "very seriously takes the protection and data security. ».

by elsewhere, each victim was asked to be careful and to be on the Alert.

the information that was stolen and then published could be a work of use dishonest. Also the information is passed and everyone is listening. However, so far it may be that the culprits of these cyberattacks have not yet revealed their true intent. Indeed no claim has been made, or even evidence, that such data that they were first stolen and served a purpose. by as a precautionary measure, the financial institution preferred to temporarily block victims' cards whose data has been hacked.

for the institution has not yet revealed the true cause of this data leakage. So it is not possible to say whether it was a sophisticated hacking or negligent neglect, a lack of professionalism of the employees of the financial provider. Nevertheless MasterCard provides for sanctions, and asserts that fraud if there is fraud will be severely punished. He added that this data leak has nothing to do with its financial services network that he proposes.

by elsewhere, there can be no doubt that the banking institution is heavily affected an upcoming sanction from the authorities, as his fault will inevitably be committed in this leak which is entirely his responsibility.

that strongly reminiscent of the case of Capital One bank in the United States, which was impose a record fine of $106 million.

Investigations are currently ongoing and the authorities are expected to respond soon.

he was found to be a lack of transparency in data sharing, which led to a lack of transparency led to an illicit sale conclusion. Because in some cases there is no legal or conventional basis according to the investigation report issued by the charitable institution there was "neither transparent nor honest and often without a clear legal basis" in the actions carried out by these mental health. What is a clear and clear violation current EU rules on the confidentiality of personal data.

by elsewhere having expanded its investigation into the use of cookies by its institutions online mental health, Privacy International has been able to determine the the nature of the data that was collected by these websites. After analysis of 136 sites, the international institution has succeeded in determining that the majority of cookies used in consultations or tests depression was purely for advertising and marketing. It is determined that in France a health site can use up to 44 cookies compared to 7 in Germany and 12 in Great Britain.

among these 136 sites it was detected that about 92 were using internet tracker. Indeed, they tracked their users through Google. fact fairly common for French and British websites. Indeed, it is estimated that that 49% of French sites use traces on Facebook as well as in large Brittany. This amounts to only 23 per cent of UK sites. however thanks to the cookies used by these mental health sites, the powerful digital and web tools such as Google Amazon or Facebook Encore can 'send targeted advertisements to users of these Sites.

if this seems innocuous, unfortunately in our context it is who are seeking mental health care. it literally borders on breach of trust and a lack of professionalism "It is becoming more and more difficult for people to search for mental health information and to use a 'mental health test' depression' for example, without this being followed by a number of incredibly high number of third-party actors. as Frederike Kaltheuner said, expert at Privacy International.

As a result, based on the results of Privacy International, these various websites are in concrete violation of the current European regulations on the management of personal data and confidentiality, the famous GDPR. According to this Community regulation, the requirement is imposed on websites to seek prior permission from their users before collecting personal data. This authorization must be explicit and clear resulting from a perfectly clear request also on its side "Do you accept that we share your health data with this list of advertisers? so should ask for websites. However this is not the case in websites indexed in the report of the international institution Privacy International.
