    Please help us with a fraud situation

    Please help us with a fraud situation

    We had some identity thefts situations with our credit cards and Bank
    accounts.
    People using our credit cards and writing checks against our account.

    How can I set up a really secure internet connection in my home ?

    I use a Windows XP - wireless laptop to access the internet I have
    in my home.
    We use Comcast cable.
    We have a WPA secure internet. We use a Netgear Rangemax MIMO
    and the Comcast modem.

    Somehow some people have managed to get both our credit card numbers
    and bank account numbers and even driving license number.

    I use this internet to access all our bank accounts etc.

    Because of the fraud that occurred, we want to make sure that
    we have a really secure internet connection.

    What additional hardware, software etc do I need, if any ?
    Since I am not a techie, pls help me with as much detail as possible.


    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Irfan Smith

    You won't have a 100% secure connection.

    1. check you computers for malware
    2. check who has access to you network (people) and how does they handle
    with sensoble data
    3. check what you throw to the garbage (receipts, old
    bills etc.)

    I don't think you loose your informations only on the internet connection.

    cheers

    I agree,

    You probably did not loose all this info due to your wireless
    connection. your info probably got nabbed because someone hacked a
    merchant you use, or someone who uses your computer from within your
    house opened an email attached which contained malware like maybe a
    key logger on your computer.

    1 Make sure you have active and up-to-date Anti Virus/Anti Spyware
    installed and are doing regular scheduled scans.
    2 So your using WPA. What encryption/authenication mechanisim are you
    using. IE TKIP/AES for encryption or Pre-share or Radius for
    authentication?
    3 Wireless will never be 100% secure. Due to the fact that your
    broadcasting data over the air it will always have a hicher risk of
    attack
    4 Hide Your SSID
    5 Don't use identifyable comment for your SSID. IE, Dont make your
    SSID your house address or your family name or anything else that can
    link your house/name to your wireless connection. it makes it to easy
    for someone to camp outside your house and hack away.
    6 Dont open attachments or emails from anyone you dont know
    7 Use a Statefull Inspection Firewall. Packet switching firewalls do
    not track the state of the data.
    8 Disable services you dont need. If your not running a web server
    uninstall IIS.
    9 Dont respond to any email which asks you to verify your username/
    passwords, banking information, or any other personal info which
    appear to be coming from your banks fraud department. Banks will never
    ask you for your passwords in an email. If you get information like
    that call the bank directly to confirm if there is an issue.
    10 Stop using cordless phones to communicate personal information
    during telephone conversations unless the conversation is encrypted.
    If you ever want to know what your neighbors really think of you, go
    out to radio shack and spend 50.00 on a police/fire scanner. Depending
    on the frequency your cordless phone is using many of these types of
    scanners can also pickup cordless phone conversations and play them
    out the speaker in plain text.
    11 If you want 100% security on your pc then erase the data on the
    computer and unplug it and put in a box. there is no such thing as a
    100% secure computer because they are inherently at risk due to
    physical and logical theft. As soon as you plug it into the internet
    that risk is elevated.
    12 For god sakes if your using microsoft wallet....stop it. Dont click
    on the box to remember your usename and passwords either.

    good luck.

    ********. In fact, the SSID should exactly be identifiable due to imposing a
    clear privacy restriction.

    Why not? I expect my mail client to be able to handle this, since it
    generally can't be avoided.

    firewalls any more.

    • Not all security issues are related to internet access, so make sure
    your other sources of information are secure also.
    o Do you print out copies of your account information?
    o Does your teenager (therefore their friends) have the password to
    your computer?
    o Do you keep all of your account information in a special folder or
    notebook?
    • It wasn’t clear to me if all of your accounts were hacked. If it is
    a single bank or charge account, then maybe the security problem in on
    the other side, where you used the business services. I’ve had 3
    charge card numbers get out into the wild in the last 10 years (my
    personal and my business cards were compromised at the same time
    after an online book store was hacked)
    • As for internet and computer security do these things:
    o Install and run good spyware detector such as adaware(lavasoft.com)
    or spybot(safer-networking.org) for starters.
    o Install a good two way firewall, one that tells you about your
    programs accessing the internet. You may find that you have spyware
    reporting home.
    o Install and run updated antivirus programs.
    • Personal habits:
    o Make sure that anytime you are entering your information the address
    line of your browser shows ‘https://’ and there is a ‘lock’ icon on
    your browser window.
    o This will ensure that the communications between your computer and
    their computer is encrypted even if you are using wireless.

    I dont abuse MSIE.

    Not all SOHO routers you buy at Best Buy/Circuit City/Comp USA or
    other type stores are statefull.

    > ********. In fact, the SSID should exactly be identifiable due to imposinga

    I would like to see a non-commercial use router that gives you
    spot to put a confidentiality banner.... Linksys, Netgear and the
    alike dont make them like that, or atleast I have not seen one Yet.
    Security through Obscurity is not a fool proof Security practice. It
    does however make it more dificult to hack what cant see. If given the
    chance to hack client A which is easy to discover versus client b
    which is not. Some might say they would go after client a. some might
    say they would go after client b because client must have something to
    hide. it will take you longer to hack client b because it may take
    more work. In the extra time you may get caught.

    In the most states in the US it is a crime to intentionally connect to
    any computer or network that you do not have direct ressponablity
    over.

    Good luck with that! Must be some hell of an email client that can
    differentiate what is a malicous attachment and what is not.

    Good luck, have a great day.

    If you use it as a webbrowser, then you're obviously abusing it for a
    totally unintended, unsuitable and trivially insecure functionality.

    Routers, by their very own nature, aren't firewalls. By their very own
    nature their NAT implementation is stateful.

    An access point without SSID broadcast can be easily seen.

    Yeah, those milliseconds really count, especially in comparison to
    self-created Denial of Service.

    Unless it directly implements offering such service.

    Why? It doesn't have to. I could open all this spam and malware stuff as I
    please, because my mail client is ****ing secure and doesn't do anything
    else but decoding the headers and then displaying the stupid plaintext.

    I really wonder why some people thing that security holes in mail clients
    would be acceptable...

    That is precisely my point about your comment on mail clients. A mail
    client has no idea if the attachement that is attached to the email is
    malicious or not. I dont know what OS or applications your using.
    However, no application or OS can be trusted to 100% secure. Day 0
    vulnerabilities are vulnerabilities that have not been found yet by "
    THE VENDOR" who made them. I would geuss there are day 0
    vulnerabilities in every application. Hence the need for defense in
    depth.

    I am glad we are on the same page about that. I was starting to get
    confused as to your point.

    Unless it directly implements offering such service.
    In many cases these days, the states that have made connecting to
    another networks or computers you do not directly own would require a
    banner or other advertisement giving explicit permission. Just because
    you can camp outside of somebodies house(or in reletive distance to
    pickup their signal) for a day or 2 and use kismit or other like tools
    to hack somebodies key does not give you permission to do so without
    explicit permission.

    In some states like California there are laws being passed which make
    having the tools of the trade to do such activity is a crime in
    itself, Acting on and using those tools is in some cases is the same
    felony as murder.

    An access point without SSID broadcast can be easily seen.
    Ok. Any access point can be seen. It is radio waves. There is no
    absolute plays to hide or exact procedure to protect yourself on
    wireless.. you want secure wireless turn it off, then it is secure.

    If you use it as a webbrowser, then you're obviously abusing it for a
    totally unintended, unsuitable and trivially insecure functionality.
    And I bet you use firefox because you think it is better and more
    secure. We all know there have never been any vulnerabilities in
    Firefox right? <wink>
    Like these CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0777,CVE-2007-2870,CVE-2007-1362
    CVE-2007-1558 CVE-2007-1562 CVE-2007-2867 CVE-2007-2868 CVE-2007-2869
    CVE-2007-2870 CVE-2007-2871,CVE-2006-4253, CVE-2006-4340,
    CVE-2006-4565, CVE-2006-4566, CVE-2006-4567, CVE-2006-4568,
    CVE-2006-4569, CVE-2006-4571- that only took me about 3 sec to find
    those.... I sure if I went on SANS's site I could find more, but why
    bother.

    because my mail client is ****ing secure and doesn't do anything
    Why do you have to curse potty mouth? What mail client are you using?

    have a great day.

    Actually, it achieves frustration on the part of OTHER people trying to
    ensure their devices don't tramp on the channel(s) you are using.

    Like Sebastian implies, don't hide your SSID. But do give it a label that
    doesn't obviously tie it to you. Something like "apeoi4nfmcx" could work.

    Better would be something like "PRIVATE_XYZ", which clearly tells people
    that this is a private network and any offence is punnishable.

    If you connect to it and it lets you connect, even offers you a per-session
    encryption key and hands out IP addresses via DHCP, this is clearly an
    explicit permission on the technical level, which in any sane jurisdictation
    directly implies explicit permission by the owner.

    Firefox, unlike IE, has no inherent, design-based and unavoidable security
    issues. So far all security issues were due to *random* programming errors.

    I know Microsoft has turned out some crap over the years. Do you
    really think they are deliberately turning out crap. I dont think so.
    If that was true then they would have never achieved the status they
    are today. Do you agree that all exploits found are due to *random*
    programming errors. I mean who really makes a vulnerable product on
    purpose these days. I cant think of any CEO that wakes up in the
    morning and says lets go design a pile of crap today so we can be in
    the news more than TJX.... This does not mean that I like Microsoft
    products any more or less than I like Linux. It is just applying a
    little logical thinking. Most companies want to make money so the
    executives get rich. You dont do that by deliberatly putting bugs in
    your software....

    I like the idea of the SSID as being "private_XYV"


    I believe Netstumbler still shows channels even without the SSID being
    displayed.

    I didn't claim that they're turning out crap. IE is perfectly suited for its
    intended usage scenario: as an ActiveX Rich Platform Client.

    No. With IE, you can break security by simply working through the front
    door, using well-documented mechanisms in their exact functionality. It was
    never supposed to be secure in first place.

    Unfortunately not.

    It's certainly not proven that your accounts were hacked via the
    internet. There are many ways people get access to your account. Do you
    shred paper copies rather than put them in the trash for someone else to

    Even it it was via the internet, it is by no means certain that it is
    technical failure in your hardware or software, but you may have been
    tricked into going to a site that is not your bank, but you think it is.


    The usual process they use is

    1) Send you an email that asks you to log into your account - various
    reasons are given for why they want you to do this.

    2) Send you to some dodgy site, but make it appear ok, so you enter your
    login details.

    3) Say the password is wrong, then redirect you to the real site, having
    taken your password and other information.

    4) You enter your data for a second time, and your bank lets you in and
    all looks normal. But the dodgy site has taken your details.


    But personally I would not use a Microsoft operating system - there have
    a long string of security issues with them. On the whole, UNIX based
    operating systems are more sucure. OSX on a Mac is one, but of course
    you need to buy a Mac. Solaris on a PC is another option. There are no
    known viruses for Solaris. It also happens to be free, which makes it
    cheaper than using a Mac.

    Given a lot of attacks are done by tricking people into giving details,
    I'm amazed that banks don't implement a "security test" for people to
    undertake and pass before they are allowed access to internet banking. A
    bank could send you 20 emails, 10 spoofs and 10 real ones. If you
    managed to log into the real ones, and not be tricked by the spoof ones,
    then you have passed. If instead you don't get to all the real ones, or
    get tricked into one of the others, then you should fail the test and
    not be allowed to use internet banking until you have improved your
    knowledge. You can't drive a car without proving your knowledge of
    driving. I'm surprised banks allow one to use internet based banking
    until you can prove your competance.

    Although I admit to doing it myself, if possible it would be better to
    used wired connections and not WiFi. I think WPA is quite secure, but a
    wired connection would be more secure.

    A while back I got a letter from the VA stating that a laptop
    had been stolen and that the laptop had all my military records
    on it. Credit Bureaus, banks, etc routinely have break ins as well.

    Most likely, your information was stolen from somewhere else.
    However, I would still recommend Shredding anything that is
    paper. Get a shredder that can shred CD/DVD's as well. People
    actually roam around in landfills looking for old backups and
    CDs with information on them. Don't us a cell phone to order
    pizza as anyone with a radio scanner can listen in (They can
    be easily modified and most cell phones are in the 700-900MHz
    range which hand helds can pick up).

    Create a Faraday cage around your house so that electronic
    bugs won't work.

    Put in extra insulation and sound proofing so that your neighbors
    cannot listen to you saying your credit card information with
    an audio amplifier.

    From Absolute OpenBSD : UNIX for the Practical Paranoid by Michael
    Lucas
    the security on wireless internet is really bad and can be broken
    quite easily. I would switch to a wired network if you can. If you
    cannot live without wireless, get a copy of the book and setup an
    OpenBSD server to do your wireless.

    No need, a quick five seconds in the microwave will render anything on
    them un-recoverable, make a nice lace lightening effect too.
