‘Our servers are secure’ — NIMC responds as hacker claims he gained access to NIN database – TheCable

The issue of data security has been at the forefront since the federal government introduced the national identity database.

In December 2021, Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy, had announced that 71 million Nigerians had been captured on the database.

As more Nigerians registered, is the NIN database free from hackers?

On Monday, a hacker identified asSamclaimed he successfully found a bug on the server of Nigerias National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) revealing how easy it was for him to breach the server and access the personal information of millions of people.

According to Sam, he came across these data while sourcing for something else to help him decompile some applications he was working on.

As usual, I am hunting for something in the source code of the application, As the scope is huge, So I collected all the applications and decompiled them all at once with apktool with this command:find . -iname *.apk -exec apktool d -o {}_out {} ;he said.

Now I started to look for something juicy in decompiled files, but as there are about 50+ applications, I cant look at each of them manually right? I just got an idea of nuclei, and boom I knew there are templates for android applications, I just downloaded them and, started nuclei on the whole directory,

After 1819 mins of a run, Nuclei gave an output saying S3 Bucket Found,I tried to access it via AWS CLI, and its like:Acess denied, No luck there.

Then after a few mins of running, Ive got one more output for s3 bucket, I casually tried to access it without any hope, and damn! the s3 bucket is full of juice.

And I was just like: I just simply got access to their data of internal files, Users, and everything they have, I can download everything, Even the whole bucket.

The hacker also posted the data he obtained in the process a copy of the national identity slip from NIMC but defaced it to hide vital information.

A security expert explained that Amazon secures S3 buckets by default but for a bucket to be publicly accessible to any hacker, as was the case with Sam, someone must have leaked it.

Hours later, the hacker recanted that the leaked sever was not from any Nigerian portal but Tecno Mobile.

He said he reported the case to Tecno, and the bug fixed.

He also edited the article published on Medium and removed a copy of the national ID posted as a screenshot in the story but failed to explain why he mentioned Nigerias ID database in the previous version.

Speaking with TheCable on the development, Boye Adegoke, senior program manager at Paradigm Initiative, said there is the possibility of negligence on the part of NIMC.

If the story is true, it is negligence on the part of NIMC, but what is more worrisome is the fact that after this, what happens next? Are we going to talk and act as if nothing happened? Will someone get punished? Adegoke asked.

The data privacy activist noted that the approach and attitude of NIMC toward the management of national data is poor.

I wouldnt really be surprised if this is true because I have always believed that the cyber security approach and our attitude show we dont understand the process and how it works, he added.

In a statement on Tuesday, NIMC said its servers are secure for identity management and optimised.

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) wishes to inform the public that its servers were not breached but are fully optimised at the highest international security levels as the custodian of the most important national database for Nigeria, the statement reads.

The NIMC Director-General stated that the Commission does not use nor store information on the AWS cloud platform or any public cloud despite the usefulness of the NIMC Mobile App available to the public for accessing their NIN on the go.

How this Mumbai startup is carving a niche for itself in the crowded ecommerce delivery space – YourStory

With the third wave of the pandemic upon us, life has moved online again. While there are a number of ecommerce delivery startups trying to make life easier for customers, Mumbai-based edobo is carving a niche for itself in the space.

edobo is an ecommerce grocery and household supplies app that is working to meet the needs of customers from the comfort of their homes.

Launched in 2019 by Ravi Narayan Jadhwani, the startup offers over 3,500 products to residents in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and parts of Thane across 120 pin-codes through its app and website.

Ravis family has been running a successful infrastructure business for over forty years. However, he personally felt drawn to the technology space. Labelling the power of the internet and the accessibility provided by smartphones as a boon for businesses everywhere, Ravi was keen to take advantage of the opportunities provided by modern technology.

He began his journey by setting up an outbound call center named 'Xzines Diligent, which unfortunately shut operations after the 2008 recession. He then joined his family business but kept an eye out for developments in technology.

In the last decade, the use of smartphones has skyrocketed, and people are relying increasingly on mobile friendly apps to meet their needs. It is the perfect medium for revolutionary service delivery. This inspired me to get into ecommerce by establishing edobo, shares the founder.

Ravi claims there was no single app that fulfilled the needs of consumers while focusing on safety and timely delivery, which made him establish edobo.

edobo is thoughtfully designed to adapt to new challenges, be it lockdowns or remote work. Customers can now grocery shop from home as easily as they work from home. Unlike other ecommerce providers, edobo ensures that our products remain 99.9 percent bacteria-free. This extends the shelf life of the products and promises safety for our customers, Ravi says.

There are multiple delivery slots in a day and each slot lasts for three hours, allowing customers to choose the slot, which is most convenient for them. Customers can also opt for a 30 minute express doorstep delivery.

To maximise efficiency and ensure customer satisfaction, the startup claims to offer over 3,500 products priced lower than its counterparts sold in supermarkets and local grocery stores. It plans to include over 17,000 products in various categories soon.

Ravi shares that edobo is committed to empowering small and medium businesses (SMBs) in the neighbourhood.

edobo says it delivers to these MSMEs early in the morning in the exact required quantities, which also allows them to save money by preventing wastage of resources and capital.

We also give them backend remote support by providing credit, which they can pay back by accepting QR payments directly from the customers and crediting straight to their partner wallet to re-procure daily needs, Ravi says.

Edobo provides around 14 categories of products to customers, including fresh fruits and vegetables, grocery staples and oils, organic items, eggs, meat and fish, snacks and packaged foods, beverages, desserts and ice cream, cleaning and household goods, personal care items, health and wellness products and pet food as well.

According to the founders, its delivery executives wear uniforms and are trained at regular intervals for enhanced customer experience.An in-house customer support team handles customer communication and delivery queries.

Ravi stresses on the fact that one can enjoy the lowest prices and frequent discounted offers on every product. He shares, We provide fast and secure payment solutions through UPI, net banking, credit and debit cards, and cash on delivery. edobos heart is in the most secured cloud servers on earth. We use AWS infrastructure for scalability.

According to a Statista report on the market size of the ecommerce industry across India, theaverage retail ecommerce revenue collected per user in Indiain 2018 was more than $50. It is estimated to cross $75 by the year 2024. Hence, going by the projection of this report and general consumer preferences, localised players like edobo are well-placed for growth.

Ravi launched the business with an initial investment of Rs 3 crore, the startup claims to have seen significant growth since then. Currently, edobo has over 20,000 active customers.

He says, The pandemic changed the ecommerce industry tremendously. People have completely changed their buying behaviour from experiential buying to virtual buying. The Indian ecommerce industry has witnessed a drastic shift in the number of online buyers and this is continuously increasing.

Ravi Narayan Jadhwani, Founder, edobo

Ravi shares they rely heavily on social and digital media to reach their customers. Word of mouth form satisfied customers and society activation measures in selected locations are other ways of organic advertisement about their services.

While edobo sees no direct competitors due to its smaller scale, it says, apart from same-day delivery because of smaller area to service and hand-picked products, its USP is the UV sanitisation of products to keep them 99.9 percent bacteria-free.

All the products undergo UV sanitisation at its warehouse to maintain the hygiene levels. It is one of the mandatory steps of the delivery process, claims the founder.

When asked about challenges, he says, Our biggest challenge till now has been to provide quality products in categories like fresh fruits, vegetables, and other groceries. Further, it has been our constant endeavour to keep our employees and staff members hygienic and healthy in the current situation, which has also been challenging.

Looking to the future, edobo is ready with plans to expand to other cities and also for opening its own brick and mortar stores. It is also looking for investors to raise funds in the near future.

What begins with a ‘B’ and is having problems at tsoHost? Hopefully not your website – The Register

Updated Beleaguered customers of UK hosting outfit tsoHost have been thrown a fresh curveball. Sites starting with the letter B on its cloud (Gridhost) platform are struggling to load.

Issues began just over a week ago when the company reported "temporary loading issues" that were hitting B websites on its legacy cloud-hosting platform.

About a day later, the problems were fixed. But not for long! Four days ago the issue reared its ugly head once more, and the company's engineers attempted to resolve it. As of yesterday, the team was still working on what had befallen the Bs.

A Register reader affected by the outage reported: "If it appears in your Cloud Dashboard as its own entry, i.e. is an actual server, and the first character of the name is a B then it will be affected.

"It affects all virtual servers on their Cloud Hosting platform who start with B," they claimed.

So, if your site was '' and on its own virtual server, then you'll likely have a problem. However, if bobbins was just a subdomain of the virtual server, then you're probably going to be OK.

We asked the company for its take on the matter and will update should an explanation be forthcoming.

A glimpse at social media indicates that our reader is not alone. Devon glamping outfit Brownscombe reported that its website was down, although at the time of writing it seemed to be up again if one feels the need to be at one with nature without having to face the ordeal of erecting a tent in a gale.

"tsoHost can confirm that some customers have reported issues with their websites," it told The Register.

"The issue is intermittently affecting certain websites on our pod of servers that serve websites starting with the letter B. We have identified high load as the root cause of the issue.

"This only affects a small subset of our customers, and we are working on applying a fix today which should alleviate remaining problems for those customers affected. We advise customers who may still be experiencing issues to contact our support team who will be able to assist. tsoHost would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."

How these 3 Companies Leverage the Hybrid Cloud – TechGenix

The Covid-19 pandemic sparked a boom in user and operational requirements that could only be fulfilled by cloud-native solutions. To increase operating efficiency and cost-savings, businesses began looking to shift the bulk of their operations to the cloud. However, the way forward was not always immediately apparent, since the shift to hybrid cloud often needs specialized support and resources. Since each business has its own unique existing infrastructure, there was a need for tailored solutions for migrating apps and services from on-premises architecture to the hybrid cloud.

Several companies have managed to make the transition to hybrid cloud successfully, with minimal downtime or disruption in services, and their strategies can offer businesses today a way forward. Lets take a look at three companies that efficiently leverage the hybrid cloud for their business operations.

Global travel company Hotelbeds, headquartered in Spain, connects nearly 180,000 travel service providers worldwide to around 60,000 different travel sellers through their advanced online platform. As the worlds leading bedbank, they need to ensure that their services are running smoothly so that travel providers have seamless access to distribution channels and sources of revenue.

Hotelbeds initially built their infrastructure by tightly coupling their legacy on-premises architecture with a single cloud provider. While this approach worked for them for a while, they found themselves facing rising costs and realized that they were missing out on the benefits of a distributed architecture. As the cloud computing landscape evolved to support more hybrid and multi-cloud strategies, Hotelbeds decided that they, too, needed to jump on the bandwagon and develop their own hybrid cloud strategy that leveraged the best offerings among cloud service providers.

Hotelbeds partnered with Rancher, an open-source multi-cluster orchestration platform that delivers Kubernetes-as-a-service (KaaS) in order to make this transition. With Rancher handling deployments and workload distribution, Hotelbeds began to run Kubernetes clusters in production in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This gave them greater flexibility in managing and scaling their workloads, while also allowing them to offer more reliable and performance available services.

In addition to dodging vendor lock-in, Hotelbeds also managed to reduce cloud migration time by 90% and deployment time by 80%. Through their new hybrid cloud strategy, the company found that they were able to scale and deploy their workloads in just minutes, guaranteeing more reliable service and increasing their operating efficiency.

Similar to Hotelbeds, Easybook is in the travel industry, and is the largest online transport booking site in the Southeast Asian region, having sold over 5,000,000 tickets since it was established in 2005 in Singapore. Easybook connects travellers to ticketing services for buses, trains, and ferries as well as car rental services and local tours, while also providing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) back-office solutions to the local transportation industry.

Easybooks IT infrastructure was originally located in the public cloud, which allowed them to quickly scale their services up to meet demand. As the company expanded its user base and grew into new markets, the public cloud approach no longer became cost effective. In order to continue its expansion while controlling costs, Easybook started looking toward a hybrid cloud solution that allowed it to continue maintaining its core business applications in Microsoft Azure.

Easybook enlisted the services of Equinix, a digital infrastructure company, and InfoFabrica, a hybrid and multi-cloud consulting organization, to move their infrastructure from the public cloud to a hybrid cloud architecture. They managed to accomplish this in less than three months with zero disruptions to service or downtime. InfoFabricas network and database engineers helped Easybook set up their new servers at Equinixs IBX (International Business Exchange) colocation data centers and install their apps, databases, and web portal software, while also offering facilities management services. This freed up Easybook to focus its staff and resources on developing their business strategy.

Since their transition to the hybrid cloud, Easybook has managed to cut costs by 30 to 40 percent and leverage the scalability and security of direct access to Azure cloud from within the colocation data center. This keeps their data secure while ensuring high application performance. Equinix also enables Easybooks access to the offerings of several cloud service providers through its software-defined interconnection platform, Equinix Cloud Exchange (ECX) Fabric.

BP is a British multinational oil and gas giant with operations in nearly 80 countries around the world, employing over 70,000 people. BP also has a network of mega data centers around the globe, which they began to rethink as global cloud service providers entered the market and revolutionized the way companies ran their operations. Realizing that they would never be able to match up to the scale, the scope, the resilience, and the flexibility of public cloud platforms, BP decided to transition out of data center management and shift their IT architecture to the cloud, specifically to Microsoft Azure.

Image Source: Pixabay

The first resource that BP shifted to Azure was a Microsoft SharePoint Server deployment. This experiment made them realize that rather than just transferring on-premises behaviors to the cloud, they also needed to adopt a cloud-native approach in order to reap the full benefits of a cloud-centric infrastructure. As BP shifted to a cloud-first strategy, they realized that they were able to free up resources to focus on innovation at the cutting-edge to deliver business value. This was because they were no longer investing enormous sums of capital in developing the infrastructure to support a new project before starting the project.

The reason why BP hasnt migrated completely to the public cloud is because stringent data protection laws in certain countries require them to maintain some resources on-premises in their data centers. The hybrid cloud approach then meets compliance requirements while ensuring flexibility, scalability, and geographic coverage. BPs hybrid cloud strategy appears to be proceeding according to plan, and it may soon accomplish its goal of decommissioning its mega data centers.

BP has leveraged several of Azures offerings to support their move to hybrid cloud. They used Azure Stack to extend cloud functionality to remote regions, networking service Azure ExpressRoute to connect on-premises data centers to Azure, Azure Active Directory for identity and access management, Azure Security Center to manage their resources in Azure, and Azure Front Door Service to quickly deliver globally distributed application through a single, highly secure entry point.

The case studies explored in this article highlight an important point about adopting a hybrid cloud strategy: no two companies will share an identical hybrid cloud strategy. Whether or not you need a hybrid cloud strategy and the kind of approach you need to take depends on your business strategy, your current IT infrastructure, the apps and services your company uses, your user base, and the direction your company is heading in.

And this is not a transition you will need to make alone. As illustrated in this article, there are several tools, platforms, and organizations that can make the shift to hybrid cloud a seamless and productive experience, while ensuring that your customers are provided consistent and reliable services.

You may employ a KaaS platform as in the case of Hotelbeds, outsource your network and database engineering needs to a digital infrastructure and/or hybrid cloud company like Easybook did, or employ your own teams and resources to make the most of public cloud offerings as BP did.

Make sure to conduct a thorough analysis of your business needs and assess the offerings in the market before you make the switch over from public cloud or on-premises architecture to a hybrid cloud setup. If not, you may miss out on the flexibility, scalability, reliability, and high performance that an effective hybrid cloud strategy can offer you.

Sensory Extends Voice and Visual AI Platform to the Cloud –

on January 6, 2022 at 12:30 pm

Voice and vision AI tech firm Sensory has introduced a new cloud-based platform for companies seeking its biometric and speech recognition tools developed. The beta version released this week is a notable departure from the companys history of on-edge processing, without the use of cloud servers.

SensoryCloud offers a handful of voice and visual AI services as APIs or SDKs. Customers can add speech-to-text, sound identification, wake word confirmation, and biometric verification by face or voice, with others to follow. The solutions are not enormously different from what Sensory has provided before, except for where and how the data is processed.

Sensory is known for its VoiceHub platform where clients could create custom wakewords and voice commands to install on smart devices. Sensorys TrulyHandsfree technology powers the devices and software built by those choosing to avoid Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant in favor of a unique option of their own. There has been plenty of demand for Sensorys tech and the company has pushed out new features and capabilities to entice even more over the last couple of years. Zoom tapped Sensory in July to help shift its voice command system away from the cloud. Sensory further widened VoiceHubs abilities by adding models designed to understand children in October. Sensory even developed voice and facial biometric tools for those with a cold and wearing a mask early on in the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cloud platform doesnt have some of the latency and privacy benefits of on-edge processing, but it offers other compensations that Sensorys clients may prefer. By running the data processing in the cloud, the clients have far more control over how to deploy its AI features and can access and analyze the resulting data to learn what customers want or discover gaps in its services. The API system is also more familiar to many programmers. And Sensory claims it doesnt diminish the capabilities of its software. The speech-to-text program claims a word error rate under 5% and the wake word verification wipes out up to 90% of false awakenings compared to rival options.

We have a history of building fast and accurate AI models, and we paired this capability with some of the brightest and freshest minds in the cloud industry, Sensory CEOTodd Mozer said. The result is a hybrid cloud platform that uses state-of-the-art AI to address customers unique needs for control, flexibility, cost, accuracy, reliability, features, latency, and privacy.

Multi-cloud security doesn’t have to be complicated, just consistent – IT-Online

As organisations in every industry shift infrastructure and services to the cloud by means of a multi-cloud strategy, their business assets, software and applications become distributed across several cloud-hosting environments.

By Kumar Vaibhav, solution architect at In2IT

Despite the many business benefits including agility, flexibility, competitive pricing, scalability, and reliance, to list a few there are several hurdles that must be addressed when adopting cloud across the business. It can be particularly tricky securing a plethora of clouds due to a lack of visibility across services and providers.

With multiple clouds comes multiple layers of risk, such as an increased attack surface, improper user management, constantly shifting workloads, DevOps and automation, all of which can get complicated.

Multiple cloud benefits

However, cloud security shouldnt be as complicated as it has become. Despite cloud having been around for more than a decade, there is still this perception that it is new technology, which makes people uncomfortable.

Cloud is many things, including scalable, reliable and cost-effective, but its no longer new. While on-premise security and own data centres is what most organisations think they need to secure their digital assets, the reality is that this is no longer sustainable its time-consuming and cost-intensive to operate and manage, particularly in comparison to the cloud.

Security must meet in the middle

So how does cloud security compare to on-premise security? Essentially, there isnt that much difference. Its easy to think that on-premise is more secure because one has direct control over all the servers, systems and data living in that data centre.

However, its important to remember when moving to the cloud that all cloud service providers, like Microsoft, Bing and Amazon all have their own security measures in place. The main concern that businesses have when it comes to moving data to the cloud is that theyre uncertain where it will live, but realistically, its possible to have the same controls in the cloud as with on-premise security.

The two go hand-in-hand and security in the cloud is a responsibility that must be shared between the cloud service provider and the customer, depending on the service theyre using.

The service provider has to ensure (in line with the SLA) that customer data is safe in their cloud, while the customer has to ensure everything in their cloud up to the point where it onramps to the service provider is secured and that their users are properly managed.

Users are the weakest link in security

Proper user management is particularly important now that the workforce is split between working at home, in the office or out in the field as 80% to 90% of all cyber breaches or attacks happen because of users.

Whether it is users being tricked into giving out credentials, or credentials being compromised by exploiting vulnerabilities, the effect is the same, making it critical to implement and utilise Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) as part of a stringent Identity Management Program.

Password sniffing or spoofing is easy, and there are thousands of ways that attackers can gain unauthorised access to data, but having MFA drastically reduces the chances of getting defrauded from the inside. In addition to MFA, its necessary to have a proper access control program in place. Role-based access is one of the most important keys to preventing data leaks.

Here, its important that not everyone gets the same level of access, and specific users must be granted only the permissions necessary to fulfil their job description.

Countering the DevOps risk

Securing web-based applications to ensure theyre not used as attack vectors is as simple as proper testing. One of the main problems with the DevOps approach thats becoming increasingly popular because of the agility it enables is that the fast pace of work can lead to an increase in coding mistakes, which can result in undetected bugs and errors.

Attackers can exploit these coding mistakes to gain access to digital assets. To counter this risk, it is necessary to pay more attention to thorough vulnerability testing on the web app continuously while following best practices for maps. Although penetration testing can be expensive, this cost needs to be evaluated against the real possibility that a single breach can cause untold damage, both reputational and financial.

Protecting against network threats and vulnerabilities in the cloud isnt much different to securing web apps, and its important to ensure that all applications and operating systems are up to date in terms of security patches, along with proper access control through a firewall and a secure perimeter.

Access must be on a needs basis only, and when vulnerabilities are detected, these must be addressed as soon as possible. In the case of virtual machines, its important to have the appropriate security controls and to pay particular attention to endpoint hygiene. Theres no point in having antivirus protection, or a firewall if its incorrectly configured, malfunctioning or not reporting properly.

Visibility through simplification

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), as defined by Gartner, can make a difference here.

SASE is a security framework specifying that security and network connectivity technologies should come together in a single cloud-delivered platform to enable rapid, secure cloud transformation. In addition to providing a singular point through which services are delivered to the client, this also streamlines network access and security measures, while eliminating operational complexity by reducing the number of vendors involved and helping to protect the business from third-party vulnerability.

This plays a massive role in achieving visibility and transparency in cloud environments, along with the fact that public cloud providers generally have their own compliance requirements to meet such as ISO 20 001, PCI, DSS and HIPAA all of which can be passed onto the customer.

Secure the data wherever it goes

Ultimately, the most effective approach to securing anything in the cloud will be one that focuses on securing data both in transit and in motion.

Asset protection is important, and visibility is critical given the scalability and flexibility of the cloud. Endpoint protection is required to secure servers or workstations or any machine in the cloud, along with operational security which ensures that when any changes are made, these occur without accidentally opening system loopholes.

Monitoring is just as vital, along with vulnerability and penetration testing. Finally, to ensure security and continuity, businesses should avoid putting all their eggs into a single cloud basket. Using multiple clouds ensures that if one goes down, theres another ready to take its place and ensure security through business continuity.

Podcast: why the future of data management sits in the cloud – Central Banking

It is no longeracceptablefor central banks to rely on daily batch processing within their data management frameworks,says Henrik Crone, deputy chief executive of Skysparc.

[Central banks] need to have a data lake, which constantly streams updates to their data analytics platforms, Crone tells Central Banking.

One way to achieve real-time data updates is to migrate from on-premises data centres to cloud-hosted centres.

Historically, central banks have used on-premises data centres which means their IT infrastructure is onsite. These centres include everything from servers that support email to the network hardware connecting them to support infrastructure.

Over the years, however, a larger proportion of central banks are switching to the cloud. Within a cloud data centre, a central bank leases infrastructure from a third party like Amazon Web Service or Microsoft and accesses data centre resources over the internet.

Adopting cloud, Crone says during the latest CB on Air Partners in Focus episode, not only allows central banks access to data from wherever they are in the world, but also allows them to scale up their data platforms.

You can programmatically increase the power of their querying. They can find their business data insights within data platforms using the power of the cloud the storage is also endless, he says.

Having infinite data storage allows central banks to aggregate historical data with real-time data warehousing.

Central banks would also reduce their data maintenance costs should they make the move to a cloud-hosted data network.

When you have traditional frameworks, you have to ensure there is an administrator and partitioning tables, all this technical mumbo jumbo regarding the maintenance, says Crone.

Data partitioning occurs to allow data to be distributed across sites and accessed seperately in order to improve query performance and increase the manageability of an on-premises database. In the cloud, there is zero maintenance, Crone says.
