iBanking malware was already described on our blog in connection with the attacks targeting Polish e-banking users at the end of 2013. This malware posed as a mobile antivirus application, while in reality it was use to steal one time passwords that were sent via text message. The attack scenario is very similar to the ones observed in the past, seen not only in Poland, but also in other countries. However, this time attackers also used QR codes, which are supposed to be more convenient for users then sending the app URL over the SMS.

CERT Polska along with 19 other partners from 11 countries have joined forces for CyberROAD – a 7FP project aimed to identify current and future issues in the fight against cyber-crime and cyber-terrorism in order to draw a strategic roadmap for cyber security research. A detailed snapshot of the technological, social, economic, political, and legal scenario on which cyber crime and cyber terrorism do develop will be first provided. Then, cyber-crime and cyber-terrorism will be analyzed in order to indentify research gaps and priorities.
The project started in May 2014 and is scheduled for 24 months. More information can be found at http://www.cyberroad-project.eu/
In December 2014 the CyberROAD project has initiated a survey with the objective of discovering the gaps in current cyber security practices, in order to identify the areas where more research is needed. The aim is to develop a definitive roadmap for cyber security research.
Everyone is invited to participate in the survey and the participation would greatly assist the CyberROAD project, as we seek to gather input from as wide a range of sources as possible. Completing the questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes.
