To protect your privacy, follow the tips at: http://privacytools.io

To protect your data, and our data, follow these guidelines:

“This notice affects everyone. Unfortunately, the internet is a friend to nobody!

Per Federal HIPAA and government document requirements, please remove any data from any computer, server or electronic device which could be hacked to compromise our location, financial or other data because your outside business and government systems, have been, or will be, hacked and penetrated by third parties according to international law enforcement and intelligence agencies. For example: The U.S. Department of Energy network has been hacked over 300 times.

We have received multiple written notices from many institutions confirming that government records have been hacked and that geo-political tensions have caused state-sponsored hackers to target all tech, medical, financial and government offices. Most of those offices have already been penetrated over-and-over.

Triple-locked hard-copy file cabinets are your best option for secure data storage.The hackers are seeking data that they can use to shame and blackmail the targets. Please do not place anything on an electronic device that could be used to shame or blackmail any party or compromise their finances.

You can get updated information at https://www.caloes.ca.gov (PHONE: (833) REPORT-1) . Per DOJ, FBI and CIA contacts: The U.S. Government, in particular the DOJ, have filed charges against over 100 individuals who hacked into The U.S. Government ’s highest level servers, including the GOVT, DOJ and SSA servers on which Victim’s records are kept. Individuals including: Wang Dong, Sun Kailiang, Wen Xinyu, Huang Zhenyu, and Gu Chunhui, who were officers in Unit 61398 of the Third Department of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and Anatoliy Sergeyevich Kovalev, Aleksei Sergeyevich Morenets, 41, Evgenii Mikhaylovich, Serebriakov, 37, Ivan Sergeyevich Yermakov, 32, Artem Andreyevich Malyshev, 30, and Dmitriy Sergeyevich Badin, 27, who were each assigned to Military Unit 26165, and Oleg Mikhaylovich Sotnikov, 46, and Alexey Valerevich Minin, 46, who were also GRU officers, and hackers-for-hire including Kevin David Mitnick, Adrian Lamo, Albert Gonzalez, Matthew Bevan, Richard Pryce, Jeanson James Ancheta, Michael Calce, Kevin Poulsen, Jonathan James, The hacker known as ASTRA, The hacker known as GUCIFER, The hacker known as ANON 4CHAN, The for-hire hacking service known as “Hafnium” and THOUSANDS of other individuals had free access and free reign throughout NSA, FBI, SSA, DOJ, OPM, CIA and other government servers via the SPECTRE, EMOTET, PRIME ROOTKIT, SERCOMM BACKDOOR, NOTPETYA, MELTDOWN, MASTERKEY, RYZENFALL, FALLOUT, CHIMERA, and hundreds of other back doors and penetration vulnerabilities in Cisco, Intel, Juniper Networks, AMD, and other equipment. Even though there have been hundreds of arrests there are still many thousands of attackers targeting the region.

If you have even a single Cisco, Intel, Juniper Networks, AMD, or related product touching your network, it can be penetrated in seconds with a few clicks of a mouse. There are hardware ‘back-doors’ in many of those devices that no software ‘fix’ can close.

Network security services may tell you: “oh yeah, we are using the best security standards”, but White Hat security specialists can almost certainly demonstrate penetrations of their software and hardware to you … within seconds. A business that sells IT services is not going to tell you that their software and hardware is non-functional. Most of them are not telling you the truth. Your network is not safe! Put your stuff in metal file cabinets.

Additionally, all of the core server penetration tools used by the CIA and the NSA were hacked by foreign nations and their core source code posted on the internet for all to use. It is well documented that most agency government servers, prior to 2020, were widely penetrated and manipulated. The hackers are all known to have sold, or provided the results of their work to famous politicians for use against their competitors. Even 14 year old kids can hack any server now!

The hackers, daily, use the common tools of:

A. Injection. Injection flaws, such as SQL, NoSQL, OS, and LDAP injection, occur when untrusted data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker’s hostile data can trick the interpreter into executing unintended commands or accessing data without proper authorization.

B. Broken Authentication. Application functions related to authentication and session management are often implemented incorrectly, allowing attackers to compromise passwords, keys, or session tokens, or to exploit other implementation flaws to assume other users’ identities temporarily or permanently.

C. Sensitive Data exposure. Many web applications and APIs do not properly protect sensitive data, such as financial, healthcare, and PII. Attackers may steal or modify such weakly protected data to conduct credit card fraud, identity theft, or other crimes. Sensitive data may be compromised without extra protection, such as encryption at rest or in transit, and requires special precautions when exchanged with the browser.

D. XML External Entities (XXE). Many older or poorly configured XML processors evaluate external entity references within XML documents. External entities can be used to disclose internal files using the file URI handler, internal file shares, internal port scanning, remote code execution, and denial of service attacks.

E. Broken Access Control. Restrictions on what authenticated users are allowed to do are often not properly enforced. Attackers can exploit these flaws to access unauthorized functionality and/or data, such as access other users’ accounts, view sensitive files, modify other users’ data, change access rights, etc.

F. Security Misconfiguration. Security misconfiguration is the most commonly seen issue. This is commonly a result of insecure default configurations, incomplete or ad hoc configurations, open cloud storage, misconfigured HTTP headers, and verbose error messages containing sensitive information. Not only must all operating systems, frameworks, libraries, and applications be securely configured, but they must be patched/upgraded in a timely fashion.

G. Cross-Site Scripting XSS. XSS flaws occur whenever an application includes untrusted data in a new web page without proper validation or escaping, or updates an existing web page with user-supplied data using a browser API that can create HTML or JavaScript. XSS allows attackers to execute scripts in the victim’s browser which can hijack user sessions, deface web sites, or redirect the user to malicious sites.

H. Insecure Deserialization. Insecure deserialization often leads to remote code execution. Even if deserialization flaws do not result in remote code execution, they can be used to perform attacks, including replay attacks, injection attacks, and privilege escalation attacks.

I. Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities. Components, such as libraries, frameworks, and other software modules, run with the same privileges as the application. If a vulnerable component is exploited, such an attack can facilitate serious data loss or server takeover. Applications and APIs using components with known vulnerabilities may undermine application defenses and enable various attacks and impacts.

J. Insufficient Logging & Monitoring. Insufficient logging and monitoring, coupled with missing or ineffective integration with incident response, allows attackers to further attack systems, maintain persistence, pivot to more systems, and tamper, extract, or destroy data. Most breach studies show time to detect a breach is over 200 days, typically detected by external parties rather than internal processes or monitoring.

Per, HIPAA and government records rules, your IT people should implement severe data restrictions at this time. Please advise your associates of these new security concerns.
