The Risks of Outdated Situational Awareness



It's been two months since I analyzed the proprietary email and personal information harvesting tool targeting major career web sites - "Major career web sites hit by spammers attack", received comments from Seek.com.au and Careerbuilder.com, communicated all the actionable intelligence in terms of the bogus accounts used and the related IPs to the career web sites that bothered to show interest in the attack, to come across a ghost story today - Jobsite hack used to market identity harvesting services :



"A Russian gang called Phreak has created an online tool that extracts personal details from CVs posted onto sites including Monster.com, AOL Jobs, Ajcjobs.com, Careerbuilder.com, Careermag.com, Computerjobs.com, Hotjobs.com, Jobcontrolcenter.com, Jobvertise.com and Militaryhire.com. As a result the personal information (names, email addresses, home addresses and current employers) on hundreds of thousands of jobseakers has been placed at risk, according to net security firm PrevX."
