Several New Players With No Prior Cyber Espionage Experience Jump Into the Hacking Game

(TNS) — WASHINGTON — Russian state hackers get the headlines, but nations across the globe are pouring money into cyber espionage units, a development, security experts say, that is allowing smaller nations to close the espionage gap without the satellites or tech muscle of big nations.

“It’s very inexpensive. It’s very efficient,” said John Hultquist, a cyber espionage analyst who’s studied the growth of hacking among smaller nations for iSight Partners, a division of FireEye, a Milpitas, Calif., cybersecurity firm.

Hultquist said his firm was tracking several new players, which he declined to identify — “I’d get in trouble for naming them” — that had no prior experience in cyber espionage.

“These would be smaller developing countries that would appear to be building out their own capability,” Hultquist said. “It’s not just the Chinese anymore or the North Koreans. Some of them are quite good.”

Hackers steal 2.5 million PlayStation and Xbox players’ details in major breach

PlayStation and Xbox gamers are at risk of having had their private information stolen following a data breach involving 2.5 million accounts.  

Hackers stole the information from two popular gaming forums back in 2015, and managed to take details including email addresses, passwords and IP addresses, it has recently been revealed. 

The forums called Xbox360 ISO and PSP ISO let gamers share and download free and pirated copies of games.

Such communities are prime targets for hackers, with many younger hackers beginning to play with internet security because of an interest in competitive gaming. The forums are unofficial and not associated with Sony or Microsoft. 

PlayStation and Xbox users have suffered cyber attacks before, but the most recent incident is by far the most severe. Back in 2014, hackers leaked the details of 13,000 PlayStation users

It’s open season for ‘death threats’ on tennis’ top players

Today’s top tennis players blame the rise of gambling for the increase in cyber-bullying, saying they constantly receive death threats and are helpless as big gambling companies snatch up huge sponsorship deals throughout the sport.

A number of women’s players, including Madison Keys, Nicole Gibbs and Eugenie Bouchard, shared their online-troll experiences with CNN.

“I don’t think people realize,” Keys told the network. “For all these matches, we get death threats.”

Late last year, the budding American star posted on Instagram a confrontation with a troll, who relentlessly lobbed slurs and derogatory comments at Keys, calling her a “monkey” and saying she’s the “cancer of tennis.”

“The amount of abuse we get after losing a match is ridiculous,” Keys said in the post, which featured several screen grabs of the troll who commented on over a dozen pictures. “As if we’re not trying as hard as we can to win matches. Maybe stop betting on
