RUSSIAN CYBER TERRORISM. KGB Yandex revenged Twitter for blockade

Publication time: 16 February 2013, 08:54

Facebook revealed on Friday, February 13, 2013, that its computer system had been "targeted in a sophisticated attack" last month, but that it found no evidence any user data was compromised, reports The Telegraph.

The company said in a blog post that malware came from an infected website of a mobile developer and that "we remediated all infected machines, informed law enforcement, and began a significant investigation that continues to this day".

The attackers used a previously unseen exploit taking advantage of a flaw in Java software made by Oracle, which was alerted to the situation and released a patch on February 1, according to Facebook.

The hackers appeared to be targeting developers and technology firms based on the website they chose to booby-trap with malicious code, AFP reported.

The US intelligence community has concluded that America is the target of a massive cyber-espionage campaign that is threatening its competitiveness, The Washington Post reported just days ago.

Citing unnamed officials, the newspaper said the conclusion is contained in the National Intelligence Estimate, a classified report that represents the consensus view of the US intelligence community.

The administration of President Barack Obama is trying to counter the electronic theft of trade secrets by lodging formal protests, expelling diplomatic personnel, imposing travel and visa restrictions, and complaining to the World Trade Organization, the Post said.

On January 25, 2013, Wired, an American website investigating Russian KGB crimes on Internet, reported that a KGB-controlled Yandex, Russia's reigning internet powerhouse, has found its latest endeavor thwarted by Facebook after Facebook revoked access to its social graph.

Yandex's new mobile social "assistant" Wonder was supposed to coalesce a user's data from Facebook, so that the KGB has access to them, and use the data to help answer questions asked verbally, sort of like the Siri feature on Apple's iPhone. Instead, Yandex is now in a dispute with Facebook, TechCrunch reports, with the two sides at odds over whether Wonder is properly defined as a search engine and thus in violation of rules governing the use of data provided by Facebook through its software interfaces, or APIs. In the meantime, Facebook has cut off Yandex's API access, rendering Wonder significantly less viable.

The Facebook's Yandex blockade is the latest in a series of information embargoes.

It is to be recalled that Russian cyber terrorists from the KGB carry out hacker and DDoS attacks using about 20 million computers worldwide, infested by Russian viruses through an "anti-virus software", delivered by a London-based KGB company Kaspersky Laboratories which is registered under the name of KGB Gen. Eugene Kaspersky, a Russian citizen.

On June 2012, the KGB started an unprecedented uninterrupted massive DDoS attack on the Kavkac Center website. The attack continued almost till the end of 2012 and was suppressed only after the KC moved its hosting from Sweden to the US, and started using modern American technology for counting attacks. At present, the KGB attacks go on periodically but the KC repulse them more or less successfully.
