The Digital Threats in Cyber Life
by Mohd Noor Amin, Chairman & Philip Victor, Director of Policy and International Cooperation, IMPACT

More sophisticated cyber threats and attacks are on the horizon. International efforts and significant resources are needed to fight such malicious cyber activities. The solution is not
to decouple from the cyber community but rather to develop a holistic strategy that will mitigate these threats. Simple but effective measures can be implemented in order to safeguard governments and business.

Flame: Most Advanced Cyber Weapon  

ITU-IMPACT industry partner Kaspersky Lab found what might be the most sophisticated cyber weapon yet unleashed. The ‘Flame’ cyber espionage worm shares many characteristics with notorious cyber weapons Duqu and Stuxnet: while its features are different, the geography and careful targeting of attacks coupled with the usage of specific software vulnerabilities seems to put it alongside those familiar ‘super-weapons’ currently deployed in the Middle East by unknown perpetrators. Flame can easily be described as one of the most complex threats ever discovered. It is big and incredibly sophisticated. It redefines the notion of cyberwar and cyberespionage.

Flame: Most Advanced Cyber Weapon

IMPACT Calls for Cyber Threat Response Acceleration
Alliance with (ISC)2® inked to foster greater cybersecurity collaboration
 
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 20th November: The International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT) renewed its commitment towards partner countries today by calling for greater escalation to form in-country Computer Incident Response Teams (CIRT).

Mohd Noor Amin, Chairman, Management Board, IMPACT, said that this drive to step up in-country response time was overdue, in light of the number of glaring cyber threats, particularly targeted at emerging markets in Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.

“There is a need to promote national-level commitment for cybersecurity. With greater connectivity comes graver risks. The rate of IT infrastructure and broadband acceleration will require swift cybersecurity response teams, who can aptly overcome cyber threats that have the potential to cripple economies,” Mr. Amin said.

According to the Internet World Stats, as of 30th June, 2009, Asia Pacific boasted 42.2 per cent of the world’s Internet users; Africa hosted 3.9 per cent; and the Middle East laid claim to 2.9 per cent. During the World Economic Forum in Davos, experts called for a new system to tackle well-organised gangs of cybercriminals, claiming online theft costs US$1 trillion a year, and attacks continue to rise.

“Without the minimal level of cybersecurity infrastructures, response teams, compliances and policies in place, the potential damage from cyber threats by malicious attackers leveraging the Internet will be unimaginable.” Amin added.

IMPACT’s Global Response Centre (GRC) verifies this grim landscape. From 11th to 17th November 2009, more than 14 million computers globally were newly infected with bots – bots are software applications that run automated tasks over the Internet and are often associated with malicious intent. The Conficker bot had infected 210,000 new computers in that period. On 16thNovember 2009 alone, the GRC detected eight new malicious bot types.

Feeds coming into the GRC saw a 17 per cent spike from October 2009, as compared to this month.
