Description: The article is about boa login. The article talks about the news that hacktivist reveals Bank of America secrets. It has released 14 GB of data to prove that Bank of America is investing in spying. They claim the bank employed security firms to monitor hackers and activists across the Web.
While they’re raking in the profits,they’re also battling off hackers. Paranoia is a group tied to the hacktivist group. Anonymous claims it has released 14 gigabytes of data that shows that Bank of America was investing in spying on hackers.
They claimed that the bank employed security firms to monitor hackers and activists,paranoia says the documents show a company called tech systems kept a close eye on hacker forums and social media sites. Has Bank of America taken their spying too far?
It’s a good time to be a banker unless you’re Bank of America. Some very unsatisfying information for them was released today. It’s a tremendous amount of stuff to sift through. We’re talking about 14 gigabytes,it’s digital world,that is a lot of information. It contains some innocuous stuff such as details on corporate executive pays.
It shows how Bank of America is trolling internet sites such as Facebook,Twitter,social media,chat rooms. They’re trying to collect information that would tell them the public sentiment on themselves. They are always wondering who those trolls are. Bank of America is one of them.
Does the information obtain by these activist group? Does it suggest that Bank of America has gone too far? We have gotten into an area where there are privacy concerns. Apparently,they haven’t gone too far in terms of protecting their databases because they could be hacked into rather easily.
They’re collecting information on the public,maybe it’s in an aggregated sense but they can also use personal information in various ways. Is this something that Bank of America customers should concern about? I’m not a hacker,I’m not a hacktivist as it’s called. It doesn’t concern me,what do you think?
There’s one scenario. I have a bad experience at Bank of America and I put my views on my Facebook page or Twitter. When I go out to take a loan,I am not sure if that information can be used to make that loan decision. I don’t know. Bank of America has a tremendous amount of data from these sites,it might concern the public.
There’s a lot of information,we don’t even know this,we haven’t scratched the surface of what is in there. Is there any indication of what they’re looking for? Are they looking for any keywords or anything in particular? It’s interesting. They have thousands of keywords,there’s a specialized software that was created for Bank of America to sip through this stuff,the source code was posted in this release too.
It looks a little bit sloppy,that’s another aspect to this. Bank of America is probably vastly overpaid for this data. It shows that a lot of data is not useful,it isn’t point to anything suspicious. I’d like to get back to where it was released,it was found in an open server in Tel Aviv. The significance of that is interesting. Why this information as vast treasure trove of data can be openly accessible in someplace?
This is another security concern. The group wanted to make it clear that this was not a hack,they wanted to show that this was something they obtained. When you are thinking of hacking,you have to forge passwords,you have to hack through it,but this was sitting there.
Unfortunately that’s symptomatic of the way that a lot of big companies treat their data nowadays. There was another incidence with Stratford,it was a security consulting firm and anonymous hacked them. This data was out there. It’s ready for people to take. Customer data could be exploited the same way. We don’t know that at this point.
You are wondering that if this is the information that is obtained by this group,but how much does it go on aside from Bank of America? Do other big banks do it? What companies do it? It raises these other questions.All the big companies are concerned about their self image,if Bank of America is doing it,the other big banks are doing it,other big corporations are doing it,there are a lot of privacy concerns.
