Cryptolocker Ransomware Being Described As ‘The Perfect Crime’

BOSTON (CBS) — It is being called the perfect crime and it has law enforcement around the globe baffled.
It all starts with a simple email.
“They are scared and they are angry. It is a real terrible experience for them.”
Joe Ruthaford is talking about computer users who mistakenly launched a potent internet phishing scheme.
He recently saw one of those ravaged computers in his Beacon Hill repair shop.
“It is extremely damaging. It is one of the worst ones.”
It’s called cryptolocker ransomware.
Kevin Swindon is with the FBI in Boston.
“I would think about this particular type of malware as what would happen if your computer was destroyed,” Swindon said.
In the past 90 days, thousands of people worldwide have opened a seemingly innocuous link to track a holiday package. Suddenly, all the files on their computer are encrypted.
Joan Goodchild is the editor of “CSO,” Chief Security Officer magazine based in Framingham.
“This is a criminal operation. They are holding your folders and files ransom. We call this ransomware because that is exactly what it is. You need to pay in order to have access to them once again.”
And that is exactly what happened last month at the Swansea Police Department.
Cryptolocker ransomware took over the department’s entire computer system and the police were forced to pay a $750 ransom to get back control.
As the ransomware takes over your computer, a countdown clock appears and shows victims how long they have to pay up. That means purchasing a key, or software, to reverse the process. And victims must do that using the online virtual currency known as bitcoins.
“Once you have purchased a bitcoin, then the transaction that you use that bitcoin in is encrypted, and therefore you cannot trace it,” explained Goodchild.
Swindon says it appears to be the perfect crime.
The FBI tells WBZ-TV they are very worried about this spreading in 2014.
The scheme could be the work of organized gangs overseas. So far, no one has been caught

AT&T to disclose government requests for customer data

Following Verizon's decision to tell the public how many government requests for customer data it gets, AT&T now says that it, too, is planning a transparency report.

AT&T has joined Verizon Communications in publishing a report that details how many surveillance requests it gets from law enforcement.
The company announced Friday that it will begin publishing a semiannual report offering details of requests it has received from law enforcement. This comes one day after Verizon announced a similar plan. AT&T and Verizon have each come under pressure from shareholders to disclose to their customers how many requests they get a year.

These reports will include information about the total number of law-enforcement data requests they receive from governments in criminal cases including the number of subpoenas, court orders, and warrants. And they will also disclose the total number of customers affected by these requests. The first report will include information for 2013.
What the reports will not do is disclose information that the government prohibits it from disclosing. For example, the company is legally prohibited from detailing requests from National Security Letters or FISA warrants.
These announcements from AT&T and Verizon come days after a federal judge ruled that a US National Security Agency surveillance program that collects phone record metadata on all US citizens is likely unconstitutional.
The lawsuit was filed after it became public in June that the NSA had been collecting records of millions of phone calls made in the US under a top-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order. The information came to light in documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
