That's because, like many businesses, hotels often do little to segment their networks. Those who have poked around a little on hotel Internet access know that many hotel chains—especially smaller ones—lack any division of their networks, with systems often easily identifiable simply by browsing the network's advertised systems. "That happens everywhere, not just in hotels," Corrons noted. "I have been in some retail hubs where they have free Wi-Fi, and [when you connect] you have access to everything. Even the [network] names of everything show this is a point of sale system and that is a server." And while some of the larger hotels have better security teams, Corrons noted, "the smaller ones don't even have a security team in place." … [Read more...] about Checking in with spear phishing, criminals check out with hotel credit card data

The bar-mitzvah attack requires adversaries to sample about one billion RC4 encryptions to infer a credit card number, password, or authentication cookie key. The known weakness exploited involves a flaw found in one out of every 16 million (224) RC4 keys that leads to "structures" in the "least significant bits" of the keystream. The attack is subject to a significant limitation, however, since the leaky plaintext is contained only in the first 100 bytes of ciphertext. Despite the limitation and the challenge of sampling so many encryptions, the attack may be enough to drastically reduce the cost of doing an exhaustive attack that guesses passwords, credit card numbers or similar data. Rather than try every possible combination, the bar-mitzvah attack allows attackers to hone in on a much smaller number of candidates. … [Read more...] about Noose around Internet’s TLS system tightens with 2 new decryption attacks
