Getting the right picture, or getting the picture right?

first_imgDear Editor,Getting the right picture, or getting the picture right? In response to WPA’s criticisms of the high-handed manner in which WPA Executive Member David Hinds was booted out of the pages of the State-owned Guyana Chronicle as a fifth columnist, a picture of President David Granger and WPA’s co-leader Rupert Roopnaraine embracing each other graced the pages of the Chronicle, along with a plea by Roopnaraine for the WPA to remain within the APNU. It was obvious that the Chronicle’s picture was worth a thousand words.The article featured Roopnaraine’s appeal to the WPA not to break away from the APNU and the governing coalition of the APNU/AFC. The WPA is an integral part of the APNU. It is interesting to note that presidential candidate Granger, in the 2015 elections, campaigned with a picture of Moses Nagamootoo and himself as a symbol of racial unity. What exactly was the picture of the President and Roopnaraine projecting in the current situation?After running with David Granger in the 2011 elections, Roopnaraine and the WPA cleared the way for Moses Nagamootoo to become the Prime Minister in 2015. At the press conference announcing the signing of the Cummingsburg Accord, when asked by a reporter if the WPA was not concerned that it had lost its place and was now a junior partner, Tacuma Ogunseye responded that, for the WPA, the national interest was more important than the party’s interest, and that was a price that the WPA was willing to pay to advance the country.As was pointed out in Ogunseye’s account of events in relation to the 2011 elections, the PNCR wanted an Indian prime ministerial candidate to run with presidential candidate Granger. This was to symbolize racial outreach within the APNU platform.The abrupt termination of the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry (WRCOI) posed a serious challenge to the WPA very early in the life of the new Government. Roopnaraine’s silence on this matter exposed the WPA to ridicule both at home and abroad. At the same time, it proved to President Granger that he could rely on Roopnaraine to subvert the will of the WPA.The manner in which Roopnaraine was assigned the Ministry of Education without any consultations whatsoever with the WPA revealed a single-mindedness of President Granger in party politics. Roopnaraine’s assignment as Education Minister was arbitrarily decided. His subsequent removal from the ministry and reassignment to another ministry in the most bizarre of manner displayed a contempt for both Roopnaraine and the WPA that would have made the Mona Lisa weep.The debate surrounding the posturing of Roopnaraine is now a source of great concern for the WPA. There is an obvious and glaring problem when Tacuma Ogunseye put the possibility of the WPA withdrawing from the APNU coalition if it is not treated with some respect, only to be contradicted by Roopnaraine. There was no explanation whatsoever on the part of Dr Roopnaraine on why the WPA must be treated in such a disgraceful manner and remain within APNU.The Chronicle picture portrays a message of racial unity, disregarding three years of non-consultation with the WPA on serious matters of Government policies, placing it in a delicate position were it to attempt to discipline Roopnaraine.Any attempt by the WPA to deal with Roopnaraine’s misguided role as it affects the well-being of the WPA may be open to exploitation by opponents of the WPA. These opponents will seek to portray it as an attempt by the African members of the party to rid itself of one of its Indian leaders, a possibility that has forced the WPA to tread carefully on this matter. But failure to resolve this issue will only continue to do more damage to the WPA. The party will have to trust the public’s opinion as to whether it has acted correctly on this matter, and will have to deal with it in a transparent manner, so that the right image can be projected.Sincerely,Rohit KanhaiMember of Working People’s Alliance Overseas Associates (WPAOA)last_img read more

FireEye reports North Korean state sponsored hacking group APT38 is targeting financial

first_imgYesterday, FireEye revealed a new group of hackers named APT38, a financially motivated North Korean regime-backed group responsible for conducting destructive attacks against financial institutions, as well as for some of the world’s largest cyber heists. FireEye Inc. is a cybersecurity firm that provides products and services to protect against advanced persistent threats and spear phishing. Earlier this year, FireEye helped Facebook find suspicious accounts linked to Russia and Iran on its platform and also alerted Google of election influence operations linked to Iranian groups. Now FireEye cybersecurity researchers released a special report titled APT38: Un-usual Suspects, to expose the methods used by the APT38 group. In the report, they said,“Based on observed activity, we judge that APT38’s primary mission is targeting financial institutions and manipulating inter-bank financial systems to raise large sums of money for the North Korean regime.” The researchers also state that the group has attempted to steal more than $1.1 billion and were also responsible for some of the more high-profile attacks on financial institutions in the last few years.  Some of the publicly reported attempted heists attributable to APT38 include: Vietnam TP Bank in December 2015 Bangladesh Bank in February 2016 Far Eastern International Bank in Taiwan in October 2017 Bancomext in January 2018 Banco de Chile in May 2018 Sandra Joyce, FireEye’s vice president of global intelligence says, “The hallmark of this group is that it deploys destructive malware after stealing money from an organization, not only to cover its tracks, but [also]  in order to distract defenders, complicate the incident response process, and gain time to get out the door.” Some details of the APT38 targeting Since at least 2014, APT38 has conducted operations in more than 16 organizations in at least 11 countries. The total number of organizations targeted by APT38 may be even higher when considering the probable low incident reporting rate from affected organizations. The group is careful, calculated, and has demonstrated a desire to maintain access to a victim environment for as long as necessary to understand the network layout, required permissions, and system technologies to achieve its goals. On average, they have observed that APT38 remain within a victim network for approximately 155 days, with the longest time within a compromised environment believed to be almost two years. In just the publicly reported heists alone, APT38 has attempted to steal over $1.1 billion dollars from financial institutions. APT38 Attack Lifecycle FireEye researchers believe that APT38’s financial motivation, unique toolset, tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) observed during their carefully executed operations are distinct enough to be tracked separately from other North Korean cyber activity. The APT38 group overlaps characteristics with other operations, known as ‘Lazarus’ and the actor they call as TEMP.Hermit. On Tuesday, the U.S. government released details on malware it alleges Pyongyang’s computer operatives have used to fraudulently withdraw money from ATMs in various countries. The unmasking of APT38 comes weeks after the Justice Department announced charges against Park Jin Hyok, a North Korean computer programmer, in connection with the 2014 hack of Sony Pictures and the 2017 WannaCry ransomware attack. According to Jacqueline O’Leary, a senior threat intelligence analyst at FireEye, Park has likely contributed to both APT38 and TEMP.Hermit operations. However, the North Korean government has denied allegations that it sponsors such hacking.
