The Home Depot says that up to 56 million credit cards may be at risk from hacker attack

It’s been a few weeks since home goods retailer The Home Depot confirmed that it was the victim of a hacker attack that potentially put customer credit card information at risk, and now the company is admitting just how big that breach was. According to a new press release issued today, approximately 56 million credit cards may have been compromised, even more than the 40 million that were accessed in the attack on Target last year.

The Home Depot’s investigation shows that the attack took place between April and September of this year and that it was the result of some “custom” malware that The Home Depot’s security partners say had never been used before. The company also noted that shoppers on its website were safe — the malware in…

You should be reading tween hacker magazines from the 1980s

It was the mid-1980s, and Matthew Broderick had barely averted nuclear war in WarGames. Congress was passing the first computer fraud laws, which would be used in 1989 to indict the man who semi-inadvertently released the first internet worm. And children across the country were figuring out how to be hackers. Meryl Alper of USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism has taken a fascinating look at the computer magazines aimed at teens and preteens in the 1980s, after the idea of computer hacking was on the radar but before the high-profile arrests of the late ’80s and early ’90s.

Hacker successfully uses Heartbleed to retrieve private security keys

This morning, content distribution network Cloudflare gave some hope to those affected by the Heartbleed security flaw with an announcement that the bug might not be as bad as feared. In two weeks of testing, Cloudflare said, its researchers failed to exploit the bug to steal a website’s private SSL keys, which secures the data sent to users. It issued a challenge to white-hat hackers to successfully retrieve the private security keys — and unfortunately for the web, one of them succeeded.

The hacker, Node.js team member Fedor Indutny, claimed on Twitter that he’d tracked down the SSL keys.

Legendary hacker Geohot busts rhymes instead of code

George “Geohot” Hotz has accomplished many things. In 2007, aged just 17, he became the first person to successfully jailbreak an iPhone, and within three years he’d also managed to hack the until-then secure PlayStation 3. After Sony filed a lawsuit against him for the hack, Hotz memorably took to YouTube to release a rap track in response. Although he still codes, and recently won a competition for doing so, Hotz has another ambition: to be a successful rapper. And he’s apparently got the Soundcloud account to prove it.

Hacker sentenced to 18 months for selling supercomputer time

Want to buy some supercomputer time on the cheap? In August, that’s just what Andrew James Miller was offering. Working from eastern Pennsylvania, he’d hacked into a number of Massachussets-based computers that, in turn, gave him access to a pair of supercomputers at California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. They were among the most powerful computers in the world — and in exchange for access, Miller wanted $ 50,000.

Bill Clinton doodles leaked by same hacker who shared George W. Bush artwork

The hacker who revealed George W. Bush’s artistic side has returned, and this time he’s focused his efforts on Bill Clinton. Guccifer (the pseudonym used by the hacker) reportedly gained access to internal files at the Clinton Library and, after some quick digging, managed to obtain unreleased doodles drawn by 42 during his time in the White House. They weren’t exactly well hidden; according to Guccifer, the sketches were inside a folder bearing Clinton’s initials. Gawker has since published the contents of “wjcdoodles” for the world to see. Clinton’s sketches are no match for the self-portrait painted by his successor, but they still provide a fun peek at his attempts to overcome boredom or pass the time while entrenched in lengthy…

The downfall of hacker collective Antisec

Hacker chronicler Quinn Norton spent months in 2011 and 2012 talking to members of the hacktivist collective Antisec, the division of Anonymous responsible for the leaked corporate emails that earned Jeremy Hammond a 10-year prison sentence. Norton says she didn’t take notes and was careful not to broach anyone’s identity, but she details a retrospective of the group from memory in a piece titled “How Antisec died.” The boldest claim? The nine-month FBI sting only nabbed two hackers from the group, Hammond and Hector Monsegur, also known as Sabu. But the agency walked away with access to more than 50 backdoors the hackers had collected to governments and corporations around the world. Furthermore, the agency’s head of cybercrime quit…
