Hackers release documents showing NSA monitored global bank transfers

Montez Delgado | 16 Abril, 2017, 15:05

Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft's Windows operating system has been the victim of a number of zero-day exploits leaked by Shadow Brokers, which were being used by the National Security Agency (NSA). Since, by their own admission, the hacker group has not been paid by anyone to "shutup [sic] and going [sic] away", they have released another cache of tools, this time targeted at Windows systems. Some of the records bear NSA seals, but Reuters could not confirm their authenticity.

If the leaked files which are claimed to be NSA's spy tools are real, the information will pose a serious threat to the SWIFT network.

The leaks provided information showing that SWIFT bureau in the Middle East, EastNet, made some very poor security choices, which would've allowed the NSA to easily attack essentially all of the banks on the network, as soon as they had compromised the first one.

"The reports of an alleged hacker-compromised EastNets Service Bureau network is totally false and unfounded", it said.

Regatas no tuvo piedad en el clásico correntino ante San Martín
Ramírez Barrios (20 tantos), Martina (20) y Sims (15) también se lucieron dentro de un equipo que no tuvo fisuras. Regatas volvió a mandar 34 a 20, a los cuatro minutos.

Criminal hackers could use the information released on Friday to hack into banks and steal money in operations mimicking a heist a year ago of $US81 million from the Bangladesh central bank.

"The EastNets Service Bureau runs on a separate secure network that can not be accessed over the public networks".

[This] means that customers running Windows 7 and more recent versions of Windows or Exchange 2010 and newer versions of Exchange are not at risk.

In the Swift network, smaller banks often make use of service bureaus to handle transactions on their behalf.

But Mr Tillerson repeated the administration's new belief that "the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end". The United States' top diplomat is in Moscow meeting with top officials there including President Vladimir Putin .

The exploits, published by the Shadow Brokers yesterday, contained vulnerabilities in Windows computers and servers. They did admit, however, that it was possible that the local networking systems of some individual SWIFT users may have been breached.

Cris Thomas, a security researcher with Tenable, said analysis of the leaked files suggested the USA government had the capability "to monitor, if not disrupt, financial transactions to terrorists groups". Security researcher Kevin Beaumont, who examined the exploit, said in a tweet that the tool was "very well" built. EastNets has, however, denied that its servers were hacked.

"The EastNets Network Internal Security Unit has run a complete check of its servers and found no hacker compromise or any vulnerabilities".

The NSA has previously shown interest in targeting SWIFT, according to documents leaked by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

Some of the documents released by the Shadow Brokers were dated 2013, but others were not dated.
