Soon other Panama Leaks?
The hackers who broke into the Mossack Fonseca servers they have covered other companies? Cybersecurity experts fear it. If the author of the leak of documents that led to the scandal of Panama Papers shaking the planet "finance" since Monday is not yet known ... the firm Mossack Fonseca said that the latter did not come to an employee (or former employee of the firm), but a hacking its servers. Its founder, Ramon Fonseca told Reuters, April 6, he complained after an intrusion of its information systems ... recognizing the authenticity of the documents published! He said he was surprised that "no one can say that the first scandal in this case is the fact that people have broken into our hard drives." The law firm specializing in domiciliation of individuals and companies in tax havens, has also filed a complaint against X. "An investigation is underway," provide the Panamanian authorities. "In this case, it's as if everyone had given up on the field of privacy and confidentiality," said Ramon Fonseca.
According to several experts in digital security, it is through the email box of the undertaking, that the hackers allegedly introduced in the networks of the Panamanian law firm before siphoning its servers and extract nearly 4.8 million messages revealing the depravity of a handful of political leaders, bosses of large groups, athletes and great fortunes worldwide. But "complicity" inside would have been required to extract, at the same time, some 3 million additional documents stored on its servers.
"The e-mail is the main gateway for hackers. In most cases it is infected with a message that corporate information systems are visited ", says Tanguy de Coatpont, CEO of Kaspersky Lab France, a subsidiary of Russian giant hexagonal, antivirus editor. For years, Mac users have believed that their operating systems were safe from computer viruses. It's wrong. For five years, companies specializing in cybersecurity and see increased malware designed specifically to exploit the weaknesses of brand operating system at the apple. "And because Apple does not want to entrust the source codes of its programs to third parties, it is difficult for us to develop dedicated antivirus," says Tanguy de Coatpont.
Among the targeted users in recent months with attacks include a large number of lawyers who appear not to have taken the measure of danger. The consulting firm Flashpoint confided to the Wall Street Journal last week, as many law firms of international scope were not sufficiently protected on the digital front.
The New York law firm Cravath Swaine & Moore LLP paid the price last summer. This bicentenary company, which employed over 450 lawyers and performs each year about $ 700 million in revenue, has indeed been "robbed" virtually by a hacker. "A minor incident", evacuated the spokesman of the firm, specializing in business law (and especially in mergers and acquisitions). The FBI nevertheless would investigate the intrusion suffered by the computers in the office. More recently, another "giant" cabinet as only the United States know how to produce (Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, $ 1.2 billion of turnover) made the experience. Several computers of some of its 1200 employees have been hacked. In Europe, the British giant CMS (3 000 experts in 60 cities around the world), a reference in tax law, also suffered hacker attacks. "We intercepted fraudulent emails that offered to bribe some of our employees in exchange of confidential information," said the BBC, Stephen Tester, partner at CMS.
Dozens of much smaller size law firms have also been targeted by hackers in 2015 and early 2016, according to Flashpoint. "Most small enterprises (TPE) handling confidential data has not yet integrated the risks of failure of their systems," notes Robert Jerome, director of strategy at Lexsi, a consulting firm specializing in cybersecurity. This would result from several factors. "A first major problem these TPE not always have the means to have someone dedicated specifically to monitor their computer networks. A managerial problem, then: these companies are often run by people who belong to a generation that has not grown up with the Internet, "Robert Jerome analysis. A final aspect, more psychological, finally takes to the ego of some of these professionals who, because of their media sometimes have a sense of invulnerability.
Still, the majority of leaks observed in recent years are the result of employees (or former employees). "The danger comes mostly from within: that is, employees or corporate contractors," says Sébastien Faivre, CEO of Brainwave, a software company. "This is mainly the result of blunders: downloading an infected possibly a ransomware file, the virus in fashion right now. This can also come from malicious behavior of individuals eager to settle scores with their hierarchy leaving fuiter confidential information, "says Jean-Yves Pronier, marketing director of the company founded in 2010. To guard against such behavior, businesses should encrypt their most sensitive files. "Cryptography has a bad reputation, because we know it is to cover the exchange email terrorists. But it is not less a way to effectively secure the data of companies and government, "argues Serge Binet, CEO of the company that Prim'X all French departments have entrusted their servers encryption late 2015.
Most companies handling "sensitive datas" also resorted to access management tools. "The purpose of our programs is to ensure that people who connect to certain files are properly authorized to do so because of their responsibilities and they do it in a professional setting," expresses Jean-Yves Pronier, Brainwave. Which adds that the current challenge is to sensitize employees to the risks they are taking by using their tablets or mobile phones when handling business records. "It is these mobile interfaces that are now most at risk," he whispers. Swiss industry, too late, will struggle to stay in the race for connected watches, says Thierry Stern, the head of the mythical factory.
When Thierry Stern, the head of one of the most iconic watch brands that are in the world, says the Swiss daily Le Temps, what he says does not take lightly. Indeed, the head of Patek Philippe roundly on some loans colleagues, he said, to get "anything to turnover". For him, "it is usually the same people who complain of competition in China. While Asians are capable of doing much better! " For the legendary giant discreet that the Swiss fine watchmaking, no question of panic to the crisis: "This goes for Patek Philippe, but it's hard for most others. [...] When you have experience, you know that hard times come and go. Still, if the latest crisis lasted 37 months, this one could be longer. And there will be fewer brands at the end - which is bad news for everyone. Because retailers can not live with Patek and Rolex, although some achieve 50% of their sales with these two brands. "
The main errors of Swiss watchmakers? First, have rushed into China, relying "on huge sales that became huge stocks when the Chinese economy has slowed." But mostly rushing on connected watches. Indeed, Thierry Stern "estimates illusory to want to fight against Apple, or Asian groups more powerful in this area, since they already have experience in this market. In the 80s, adolescents, we already had all of the Casio with many features. Our industry is far behind in this area. The first version of the Apple Watch was not completely successful, but she still made a buzz. The second will be better and one can think that the third is downright awesome. Apple and others have the capacity to create objects that the watch world simply does not. It will be hard to stay in the race. " Of course, Patek Philippe will never connected from watches, it is neither his job nor his DNA. "By cons, all the bosses of these technology companies are among our customers! They tell me to wear a Patek puts their feet on the ground, "is he fun. Morality, the success of high-tech giants also creates new clients for luxury watches!
