Hacker arrested for attacking classic music website

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A male suspect was arrested on May 1 for hacking into a popular local classic music website, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) announced yesterday. The police raided the apartment of the suspect, surnamed Shih (施), and seized his computer.
Investigators allege that the suspect used the computer in his hacking attempts.
During initial investigations, Shih confessed to the police that he hacked into the website's customer database and made unauthorized changes to customer data, the CIB said in a statement.
Shih also confessed that he has used a hacking technique called SQL injection to attack the website's database.
SQL injection is a code injection technique that exploits a security vulnerability in an application's software, the CIB said.
The investigation was launched by the bureau after it received a report from the website's operator who said its site was hacked in March.
The CIB urged local website operators to stay on alert regarding similar hacking attempts.

Thailand prime minister's homepage defaced with insults

Thai prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra's official homepage was hacked on Wednesday, defaced with messages and a doctered picture deriding her on her homepage.
The PM Office's site was hacked around noon, Thailand time and was taken down for several hours soon after, The Bangkok Post reported. Checks by ZDNet showed the site was still down at press time.
One message appeared beside an edited image of Yingluck laughing, and made derogatory remarks about the premier's intelligence and sexual morality.
At the bottom of the page, a message in smaller words read, "I know that I am the worst prime minister ever in Thailand's history!!!", along with the name "Unlimited Hacked Team!!!". However, the group posted a message on its Facebook page denying responsibility for the hack.
The Web site was defaced with a doctored image of Yingluck Shinawatra laughing and the message "I know that I am the worst Prime Minister ever in Thailand history!!!" (Source: The Bangkok Post).
The cyberattack appears to be a direct response to Yingluck's request for Thailand's Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Ministry to take action against people spreading groundless accusations against her online.
She had made the call to growing online criticism after her decision to file a defamation suit against newspaper cartoonist Chai Ratchawat, who called her an "evil woman" on his personal Facebook page, a separate report on The Bangkok Post noted.
The ICT Minister Anudith Nokornthap said his ministry was working with the Thai police to track down those responsible and will conclude the probe on Thursday, but said he did not believe the incident was related to the ministry's clampdown of people posting insulting messages against Yingluck.
The PM Office's secretary-general Suranand Vejjajiva said gains in technology had made it easier to hack a Web site, and also for authorities to track down those responsible. Those found responsible will be prosecuted according to the law, he said.
This is not the first time Yingluck had been targeted by hackers. In July 2012, Yingluck's Twitter account was hacked and eight tweets criticizing her policies posted, according to a BBC report.
Last year, up to 2,960 Web sites were hacked from September 2012 to January this year, of which 1,250 belonged to the government, the report noted. Thailand's government is in the midst of reforming the country's computer crime law as it does not address current IT security issues and is planning a public hearing for citizen participation in the law revision, which is expected to take up to three years.

ACLU says FBI snooping emails without warrants

Officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) do not need a warrant to read citizens private emails, according to documents uncovered by the ACLU.
Documents came to light following an ACLU Freedom of Information Act request. According to the documents, FBI agents can use a loophole in the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to read private emails without a warrant.
"If the contents of an unopened message are kept beyond six months or stored on behalf of the customer after the e-mail has been received or opened, it should be treated the same as a business record in the hands of a third party, such as an accountant or attorney," read an FBI handbook uncovered by the ACLU.
"In that case, the government may subpoena the records from the third party without running afoul of either the Fourth or Fifth Amendment."
The ACLU reports that officials within the FBI use a loophole in the ECPA to circumvent the use of a warrant. The loophole allows government agencies to snoop through private emails that are older than 180 days.
"These records show that federal policy around access to the contents of our electronic communications is in a state of chaos," said ACLU Speech, Privacy & Technology Project staff attorney Nathan Freed Wessler in a blog post.
"The FBI, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, and Department of Justice (DOJ) Criminal Division should clarify whether they believe warrants are required across the board when accessing people's email."
The loophole was also discovered to be used by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) last month. ACLU staffers uncovered that the IRS was snooping through personal emails without a warrant following another Freedom of Information Act request.
IRS officials have denied any wrong doing. They said in a recent statement that the IRS does not use email to target taxpayers.
The ECPA, the legislation that features the loophole, has recently been called on to be amended. Senate Judiciary Committee (SJC) recently earmarked an updated version of the bill for a Senate vote.
