Someone Is Selling Mac Malware on the Dark Web


Mac users beware: two pieces of dark web malware have been spotted on the dark web that target Macs. Their names? MacSpy and MacRansom. These two pieces of software were made by an unknown person who is marketing them as services. This means that the malware can be sold and then continuously supported and updated.

Security companies like Fortinet and AlienVault have analyzed samples of the malware, and report that they aren’t that sophisticated, although MacSpy is being marketed as “the most sophisticated Mac spyware ever.” Even so, it gives the impression that cybercriminals are eyeing Macs as viable targets more and more, instead of sticking to Windows.

MacSpy
The creator of MacSpy claims that it can capture screenshots every 30 seconds once it has been installed on your system. It can log all of your keystrokes, access your synced iPhone photos, record sounds even if your microphone isn’t turned on, and get your history and download data from Safari and Chrome.

Blockchain’s Got No ‘Killer App’ Yet, Says Morgan Stanley, Even as Bitcoin Soars

Morgan Stanley writes that Blockchain, the technology for an open, verifiable general ledger, is still in a "proof of concept" phase, and it may be several years before it is used in everyday practice for financial settlements. They see incumbents such as UBS and BNY Mellon having an early advantage in testing the technology. The reason for the soaring value of Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies is less clear, they write.



Fans of the financial ledger technology known as Blockchain may be interested to know Morgan Stanley analysts today unveiled a longish (43 pages) white paper on the state of the technology in the financial services business, declaring that there is yet not “killer app” for BlockChain, but rather “we are now firmly in the middle of the proof-of-concept phase of development."

The report also offers some thoughts about why Bitcoin, the crypto-currency that took off in tandem with Blockchain, has been soaring in value.

Tech analyst James Faucette, along with several of his colleagues at Morgan, take a look bake at how things have progressed in the twelve months since they first wrote about the prospects for BlockChain to be used in financial settlements and other services.

The authors take a look at five case studies that have been done, including a government bond settlement project by BNY Mellon (BK), and something from UBS Group AG (UBS) called “utility settlement coin."

The premise of all of these experiments, they note, has generally been that "Blockchain is a tool to improve efficiency." "As the technology matures, funds and securities firms will have an opportunity to further reduce headcount and operational expense as Blockchain technology becomes more widely used to clear and settle transactions."

Bitcoin’s soaring price means bankrupt Mt. Gox may soon be able to pay its creditors

In the bitcoin world, even insolvency is just a bull run away from being reversed.
The infamous bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox, which declared bankruptcy in 2014 while owing creditors 45 billion yen ($414 million), has a stash of bitcoins held by its trustee that—at least for the moment—are valuable enough to pay off its creditors and then some, thanks to the cryptocurrencies record-setting price surge this year. Bitcoin set a historic high two days ago (June 11), trading at over $3,000 a coin. The Mt. Gox trustee holds 202,185 bitcoins (pdf), which are now worth about $560 million, at the bitcoin price of nearly $2,800 today.
More than half a billion dollars worth of bitcoin just sitting in a trustee account hasn’t gone unnoticed. Mt. Gox creditors congregating on a sub-Reddit on discussion site Reddit have proposed many uses for this stash of money.

Flippening in sight? Ethereum up 5000% YTD, but bitcoin falls $400 in a day

Steadily stealing the spotlight from its senior bitcoin, ethereum crossed the USD 400 mark on Monday, as per the CoinDesk Price index.

Ethereum touched new highs shortly after bitcoin crossed USD 3,000 yesterday.

Ether, a blockchain-based asset which acts as a fuel operating the distributed application platform Ethereum, has appreciated over 5,000 percent since the start of the year and was faring at levels of USD 404, while this report was being filed.



Formation of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), bitcoins scaling debate, rise of initial coin offerings (ICOs) and the most recent, the meeting between ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Russian President Vladimir Putin were among the key events that led to the rally in ether. Putin meeting Vitalik, signals that Russia might be looking to use the blockchain, giving the ether token further legitimacy.

One of the major contributors to ether's rally has been South Korea lately. Since March, demand from Korea has seen a major uptick. Currently, over 50 percent of trades are done over the Korean Won (KRW).

GOLDMAN SACHS: Bitcoin is looking 'heavy'

Bitcoin has had a blistering start to 2017. It's up about 180% so far this year. However, its near-term outlook isn't looking so hot, according to a note released on Monday by Goldman Sachs head of technical strategy Sheba Jafari.
"The market has come close (enough?) to reaching its extended (2.618) target for a 3rd of V-waves from the inception low at 3,134," Jafari wrote. "It's on track to forming a bearish key day reversal if today's close settles below 2,749."
Bitcoin hit a lifetime high of nearly $3,000 a coin on Monday, but was unable to hold onto those gains. The cryptocurrency finished the day at $2,599, well below they key technical threshold of $2749 that was singled out by Jafari.
Now, traders should be paying close attention to $2,475 on a weekly basis, as a close below there would cause even more damage to the technical picture, according to Jafari. "Both daily/weekly oscillators are diverging negatively. All of this to say that the balance of signals are looking broadly heavy."

32  Bitcoin / Press / [2016-04-16]Bitcoin community disputes the use of 'Internet of Money' on: April 16, 2016, 08:49:15 AM
Some people in the bitcoin world—the believers still waving the flag for the leading digital currency, which is currently trading at $427—will tell you that the phrase “The Internet of Money” is widely understood as a reference to bitcoin and its underlying technology, the blockchain. But Uphold, a “cloud bank” startup that launched in 2014, will tell you it is their corporate slogan. It applied to register the phrase as its trademark for financial services back in September 2015 with the US Patent & Trademark Office, and is far along in the process.

Andreas Antonopoulos doesn’t like that. The cybersecurity expert and author of "Mastering Bitcoin" has waged a war with Uphold, encouraging his 47,000 Twitter followers to help him find the earliest uses of the words “Internet of money.” Uphold’s adoption of the slogan, he tells Yahoo Finance, “perverts the meaning of the phrase.”

The law is on Uphold’s side; there’s not much Antonopoulos can do to stop Uphold from getting its registration. But of all people, Antonopoulos is a loud enemy for a fintech company to have.

A bitcoin-based blockchain wallet application developed by LHV Bank and industry startup ChromaWay has won the Estonian Banking Association’s 2016 Innovation Award.

The app was selected over of entries by Nordic banks SEB and Swedbank and cross-border money transfer startup Transferwise due to what judge and CEO of Rate Solutions Andrei Korobeinik said in statements was its uniqueness among entrants.

While Korobeinik acknowledged the app might not have yet proved a commercial success, he praised it for working "out of the box" and said that LHV Bank showed courage in embracing blockchain innovation at an early stage.

The wallet was introduced last spring, making LHV Bank one of the first major global banks to announce it was working actively to understand the potential of bitcoin and blockchain technology. The app allows users to exchange digital currencies pegged at a one-to-one rate with the euro.

Bitcoin Core 0.12.1 Released, Major Step Forward for Scalability

Bitcoin Core 0.12.1 was released early this morning and the update includes several changes that have huge implications for Bitcoin scalability. The release deploys the first soft fork on the Bitcoin network to use the methodology outlined in BIP 9 (Version Bits), which allows multiple soft forks to take place at the same time.
The three BIPs (BIP 68, BIP 112 and BIP 113) included in Bitcoin Core 0.12.1 have huge implications for the Lightning Network, which many believe to be Bitcoin’s best chance for long-term scalability. Although the code for the soft fork has been deployed, miners cannot signal their support for it until May 1st.

Coincheck collects bitcoin donations for Kumamoto earthquake victims
On April 15, at 16:25 UTC a magnitude 7.0 (M7.0) earthquake struck southwest Japan, “as the result of strike-slip faulting at shallow depth,” according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

The Japan Meteorological Agency recorded the quake as magnitude 7.1, which it later revised to 7.3.

The quake occurred one day after “a series of foreshocks” in the Kumamoto prefecture. A magnitude-6.2 earthquake struck southwest of Ueki on Thursday, a couple of hours later a magnitude-6.0 quake hit East of Uto.

The Japan Meteorological Agency quickly issued a tsunami warning and advisories for coastal regions.

Nine people were killed as buildings collapsed in Thursday’s quakes. At least 11 were killed by the M7.0 quake, injuring and trapping hundreds more in collapsed buildings. Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that more than 1,100 people were injured, and eight were still reported missing. In addition, the prefecture office announced that 44,449 people had been evacuated, most of whom are taking refuge in shelters.

Will regulation be a blessing or a blow for Bitcoin?
The European Commission (EC) wants to update the fourth Anti-Money Laundering directive so that it also covers virtual currencies, such as Bitcoin. In the UK, the Treasury has followed suit by announcing plans to subject virtual currency exchanges to the same regulations as banks.

This isn’t surprising. Gunnar Nordseth, CEO and co-founder of Signicat, muses over the possible implications of the new directive.

Virtual currencies are primarily used for benign purposes, but they’ve yet to throw off their shady reputation. Silk Road meant that it’s connected in most people’s minds with drugs, and the EC wants to regulate these currencies in order to “prevent their abuse for money laundering and terrorist financing purposes”.

Specifically the EC is proposing “to bring virtual currency exchange platforms under the scope of the Anti-Money Laundering Directive, so that these platforms have to apply customer due diligence controls when exchanging virtual for real currencies, ending the anonymity associated with such exchanges”.

It’s unusual for more legislation to be good news, especially with cryptocurrencies, but there’s a chance this could be the making of Bitcoin. If it’s no longer anonymous it might be able to shake off its bad reputation. Virtual currencies can “go legit”.

Airbnb just acquired a team of bitcoin and blockchain experts

Home-rental company Airbnb has “acqui-hired” the majority of the team behind ChangeCoin, a startup that runs a bitcoin-based micropayments service, according to four people with knowledge of the deal.
The alternative lodging site has been looking at a few bitcoin and blockchain startups, according to two sources, to study what the technology could do for its services. Companies like Uber and Airbnb are built on their ability to manage supply and demand, which could be aided by a powerful, open ledger system like blockchain.
Through a service called ChangeTip, ChangeCoin lets users send tiny amounts of money, or tips, over social networks including Twitter and Reddit. But Airbnb appears to only be interested in the talent behind the company: ChangeCoin is still shopping its intellectual property, sources said.

Business Intelligence Report Mentions Bitcoin and Blockchain
The primary goal for of any merchant services provider is to come up with new ways to make e-commerce more appealing to both consumer and business. This is one of the areas companies are likely to put their attention on, together with card-present and card-not-present transaction processing in Europe.

But there is more, as this initiative could help facilitate cross-border services, assuming banks can get their clients interested in this prospect. All of these new services could be offered together with all of the existing transaction features.

It comes as quite a surprise to find out their new report also makes mention of Bitcoin and digital currencies. Rather than taking a more negative stance to these potential disrupters in the payments industry, Business Intelligence seems to acknowledge the potential these concepts hold.

The Power of Schnorr: The Signature Algorithm to Increase Bitcoin's Scale and Privacy



Segregated Witness has entered its final testing stage before roll-out on the Bitcoin network. That is good news, most importantly because the innovation introduces a capacity increase to allow for more transactions on the network, while it also solves transaction malleability.
And, it introduces script versioning ‒ an extension to the Bitcoin protocol that allows for an entire new category of innovation.
One of these imminent innovations has been on the top of several Bitcoin developers’ wish-lists for some time: Schnorr signatures.
With the impending release of Segregated Witness, implementation of the Schnorr cryptographic signature algorithm might follow soon after, potentially improving Bitcoin's scalability, efficiency and privacy, all in one go.
