US Airways Tweets Very Graphic Porn Image

Turns out companies really are people. News just broke that US Airways has done what so many humans do and sent out a tweet with porn attached to it. And similar to the way people tend to explain their own publicized porn tweets, the airline has a handy excuse.

According to the Baltimore Sun, "US Airways said the image was originally sent to the airline's account and US Airways tried to flag is as inappropriate.

The photo in question is a real doozy, and that's coming from AVN, a family friendly porn magazine. It's so graphic even we can't publish it, showing as it does a young lady on her back, legs over her head, with the nose of a 777 sticking into her vagina. Not a real 777, mind you, but a very nicely sized model of one, though too large by far to fit inside the entire shaft... er, fuselage. BuzzFeed has the graphic goods for those interested in exceptional in-flight entertainment.

It's sure to become a classic. "Although US Airways removed the tweet," reported the Sun, "the image has been posted throughout the Internet as a screen grab.

"The tweet that included the image," it added, "was directed at a Twitter user with the handle @ellerafter in response to her complaint about a delayed flight from Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina to Portland International Airport in Oregon."

Sticking with its story, an airline spokesperson issued a statement today that said, "Unfortunately the image was inadvertently included in a response to a customer. We immediately realized the error and removed our tweet. We deeply regret the mistake and we are currently reviewing our processes to prevent such errors in the future.”

Global Traffic Said to Grow 3 Times in 4 Years

Global Internet traffic will grow nearly three times in the next four years due to an increase in Internet-enabled devices and better video streaming, according to a new report.

The CiscoVisual Networking IndexGlobal Forecast and Service Adoption for 2013 to 2018 said that the majority of IP traffic by 2018 will originate from mobile and portable devices other than personal computers.

Wi-Fi traffic will exceed wired traffic and high-definition video will generate more traffic than standard-definition video, the report said.

Global broadband speeds will reach 42 Mbps by 2018, up from 16 Mbps at the end of 2013.

The report said that in 2013, 33 percent of IP traffic originated with non-PC devices. But, by 2018, the non-PC share of IP traffic will grow to 57 percent. Wi-Fi and mobile-connected devices will generate 76 percent of traffic by 2018.

Wi-Fi will be 61 percent, and cellular will be 15 percent, the report said. Fixed traffic will be only 24 percent of total Internet traffic by 2018.

Gian Carlo Scalisi of adult mobile traffic specialist told XBIZ that for the majority of entertainment content the future is in mobile.

"The adult industry is no different," he told XBIZ. "The mobile is the most personal and interactive one, and the user 'addiction' to it will increase along with the technology development.

"The adult entrepreneurs need to follow the trends, predict and embrace the new technologies, in order to stay on top and evolve together with the market.

New Canadian Antispam Law Hits Violating Companies With $10M Fines

A new antispam law went into effect on Tuesday in Canada requiring email senders to verify that they have the recipient’s consent.

Regulators note that the rules apply to senders in the U.S. or anywhere else in the world who want to communicate with Canadians through email for any service or product — not just sexually explicit material.

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission said that consent can come in two ways — implied or express. When it is implied, a company can assume consent if they have an existing documented relationship with the recipient.

With the new opt-in law, which will be phased in over three years, sending just one commercial email without permission could result in fines of up to $1 million (Canadian) for individuals and up to $10 million (Canadian) for companies.

After three years of implementation, the law will make it be possible for individuals and class-action groups to sue companies, organizations and directors for sending spam.

Russian SMS Trojan Pushing Porn App Hits United States

For the first time, researchers have detected an active SMS trojan in the United States. The malware program, Trojan-SMS.AndroidOS.FakeInst.ef, "dates back to February 2013 and was originally designed to operate in Russia," reports PCWorld.

"According to Kaspersky," adds InfoSecurity, "FakeInst disguises itself as an application for watching porn videos, and is capable of sending messages to premium-rate numbers. Once installed on the phone, the trojan can intercept incoming messages and then perform various actions, including steal messages, delete them or even respond to them.

"As well as sending unauthorized text messages that cost around $2 each," it continues, "the trojan can send an SMS from an infected device with a preset text to a number specified in a command and intercept incoming messages."

Kapersky Lab Expert Roman Unucheck, in a blog post today, also noted that "14 various versions of [FakeInst] have emerged," and includes in a post the names of all the countries that appear on the versions' "support list."

More problematically, Unucheck writes of the sophisticated malware:

* "FakeInst disguises itself as an application for watching porn videos. The application asks the user to agree to send a text message to purchase paid content. However, after sending the message the Trojan opens a free-access website."

* "In order to send the message, the Trojan decrypts a configuration file which contains all phone numbers and prefixes."

* "From this list, FakeInst selects the appropriate numbers and prefixes for the user’s mobile country code. For instance, for an MCC within the range 311-316 (which corresponds to the USA), the Trojan would send three messages to the number 97605, each costing about $2."

* "The Trojan also contacts its C&C server for further instructions. Of all the commands that it can receive and process, we’d like to highlight the ability to send a message with specific content to a number listed in the C&C command, and intercept incoming messages. The Trojan can do various things with incoming messages – steal all of them, delete them, or even respond to them."

He adds, "We believe that FakeInst was created by Russian-speaking cybercriminals. Firstly, its early versions were only designed to operate in Russia. Secondly, all its C&C servers are registered with and hosted at Russian providers.

“It appears that the cybercriminals have built up sufficient resources to expand their illegal business on a global scale,” Unuchek concluded.

Report: Bad Bots on the Rise

Following a year-long study into the state of bot traffic, website security firm Incapsula found that "bot traffic went from consisting of 51 percent to 61.5 percent of all Internet traffic, a 10.5-percent increase," has reported. More worrisome, however, is the fact that data from the study indicates that thirty-one percent of the bots are malicious.

"For this story, a bot is a malicious mobile, social, porn, or spam robot that lives on the Internet and unsuspecting users’ devices," adds David Geer for CSO. "People errantly install mobile bots on smartphones as hidden elements of software bundles or free apps from third-party app stores. Since phone vendors do not authorize these downloads, users typically jailbreak or root their devices in order to enable a wider selection of free apps.

Geer explains the different types of bots in his article, Bad bots on the rise: A look at mobile, social, porn, and spam bots, but we are of course mostly interested in the porn bots, about which he writes, "Porn bots include chat room spammers and bots that pop up on adult websites. Chat room spammers crawl the Internet looking for chat forums that use technologies such as Internet Relay Chat (IRC) and web-based chat. Porn bots invade these sites, messaging offers of free adult images via links.

"Porn chat bots," he adds, "live on free adult websites where they pop up chat windows with pictures of attractive people saying, I see you are from [your town here]. I live in your area. Would you like to chat?' The chat bot determines the user’s location based on their IP address."

The whole point, explains security strategist Richard Henderson to Geer, is to lower an individual's defenses. "There’s some rudimentary intelligence in those bots, designed to build familiarity with the user to entice them to click to another porn site, which will require them to pay for premium content," he said.

It could be argued that the other types of malicious bots actually represent more danger to the unaware surfer that the porn bots do, but because the use bots are put to is ever-evolving and can always become more dangerous, all bots, writes Geer, "increase the impact of malware, and social engineering through the sheer number of people they can reach almost instantaneously.

For that and other reasons, another security expert approached by Geer, James Brown from JumpCloud, suggested that firms not be complacent about trying to deal with bots. "Enterprises should monitor network traffic for all uncharacteristic, unexpected, and suspicious network behavior," he told Geer. "In particular, traffic leaving servers for anomalous locations such as countries where the enterprise does not do business."
