Is the Passion Over Net Neutrality Misguided? A New Paper Offers a Fresh Technical Approach

CircleID CircleID: "Net neutrality" is implicitly framed as a debate over how to deliver an equitable ration of quality to each broadband user and application. This is the wrong debate to have, since it is both technically impossible and economically unfair. We should instead be discussing how to create a transparent market for quality that is both achievable and fair. In this paper I propose an alternative approach that (potentially) meets the needs of both consumer advocates and free market proponents.

Broadband service quality: Rationing or markets? [Download PDF]Broadband is increasingly vital to everyday life, as well as to commerce and enterprise. Its importance merits asking the question: what is the appropriate role of government in managing the market for broadband services? For historical reasons, the primary agency tasked with answering that question in the US is the FCC.

The FCC has a long history of policing traditional telecom networks, and constraining the actions of players engaged in unfair practices. Over many decades, the FCC has found occasions where dominant carriers to have leveraged their market power to favor or disfavor other players. Whilst this inflates carrier profits, it demonstrably harms consumers.

The subject of "net neutrality" (called "Open Internet" in FCC rulemaking) is about the potential for ISPs to become "king makers" for online services. Its proponents position it as being about the potential for harmful "discrimination" by powerful ISPs. The topic generates diverse viewpoints that are promoted with intense feeling. This paper proposes that such passion is mostly misguided, as the current policy debate is misframed.

Consumer advocates have taken a language of fairness for living people, and then misapplied it to packets, whose ethereal nature barely qualifies as inanimate. As a consequence, they have inappropriately focused their "discrimination" concerns on the internal traffic management choices of packet networks. The resulting regulatory rules unwittingly enforce a grossly unfair rationing of service quality.

We can successfully reframe the policy problem to achieve a far fairer social and economic outcome. To do so, we must strip purely technical concerns of unwise and irrelevant emotive language. Terms like "discriminate", "throttle" and "violate" are used to fan public outrage, but come overladen with unhelpful semantic baggage. We need a new policy lexicon, one that clearly separates mechanistic network processes from orthogonal economic and legal issues.

Richer language and rational inquiry are our newfound friends; they help us to think with crisp precision about fairness concerns in the unfamiliar technology domain of distributed computing. Issues of equitable resource allocation need to be addressed at the human level, where they always belong.

The treatment of packets should only be relevant to the extent that a harm to people exists. Our goal then is to appropriately relate fairness to people to that of packet delivery. This can be achieved by focusing only on the external end-to-end service quality.

This paper proposed an alternative approach that (potentially) meets the needs of both consumer advocates and free market proponents. It constrains unfair ISP power, whilst also replacing rationing with a fairer market for quality. For this to come to pass, Congress has to express its will that it prefers fair markets over unfair rationing of broadband quality.

South Korean Banks Receive DDoS Threat from Hacker Group, Record Ransomware Payment Demanded

CircleID CircleID: Various sources including South Korea's news agency Yonhap are reporting that a hacker group has threatened to launch a DDoS attack against seven South Korean banks unless they pay about 360 million won (US$315,000) in bitcoin. The hacker group, known as Armada Collective, has threatened KB Kookmin Bank, Shinhan Bank, Woori Bank, KEB Hana Bank, NH Bank and two other lenders. Zeljka Zorz reporting in Help Net Security writes: "Choi Sang-Myung, a researcher at South Korean's Hauri Labs, noted that these latest threats might have been a consequence of the recent successful extortion attempt of South Korean web hosting provider Nayana. ... The deadline for the announced attacks was this Monday. The websites of the aforementioned banks are online and working, but whether it's because they paid the requested amount or because they managed to twart the DDoS attacks is impossible to tell."

— Update: New report from BBC, "Global ransomware attack causes chaos ... Companies across the globe are reporting that they have been struck by a major ransomware cyber-attack. ... Experts suggest the malware is taking advantage of the same weaknesses used by the Wannacry attack last month. ... Kaspersky Lab reported that it believed the malware was a 'new ransomware that has not been seen before' despite its resemblance to Petya."

— Petya is a ransomware with an evil twist: F-Secure: "Instead of encrypting files on disk, it will lock the entire disk, rendering it pretty much useless. Specifically, it will encrypt the filesystem’s master file table (MFT), which means the operating system is not able to locate files. It installs itself to the disk’s master boot record (MBR) like a bootkit. But instead of covert actions, it displays a red screen with instructions on how to restore the system."

— "A South Korean hosting firm just paid $1m to get their data back and that's a huge incentive. It's the biggest incentive you could offer to a cyber-criminal." Andrei Barysevich at security firm Recorded Future told BBC

Phishing: the Worst of Times in the DNS

CircleID CircleID: The Anti-Phishing Working Group has released its latest Global Phishing Survey, written by myself and Rod Rasmussen. This report comprehensively examines a large data set of more than 250,000 confirmed phishing attacks detected in 2015 and 2016. By analyzing this cybercrime activity, we have learned more about what phishers have been doing, and how they have done it. Unfortunately, there's more phishing than ever, and phishers are registering more domain names than ever.

Our major findings include:

1. In 2016, the number of phishing attacks, and the number of domain names used for phishing, reached an all-time high.

2. Malicious domain name registrations are also at an all-time high, indicating detection and mitigation problems at certain registrars and registries. Historically, most phishing has occurred on conpromised domains, where phishers broke into innocent registrants' web hosting. But increasingly, phishers just go and register the domains they need. This major shift is concerning, and it means abuse detection and mitigation efforts are failing especially at certain registries and registrars.

3. Phishing in the new top-level domains (nTLDs) is rising and becoming more pervasive, but is not yet as pervasive as it is in the domain space as a whole. By the end of 2016, almost half of the nTLDs that were available for open registration had phishing in them. The nTLDs are also a place where phishers are purchasing domain names for themselves. Of the 6,549 domains used for phishing in the nTLDs in 2016, 86% (5,633) were registered maliciously.

4. New companies are constantly being targeted by phishers, while a few brands face an onslaught of thousands of attacks per year.

5. Contrary to conventional wisdom, phishers often wait up to three weeks before using domain names they have registered.

Full statistics and analysis of each of these topics — including breakdowns by TLDs and registrars — are included in the report.

In the meantime, phishers are employing another new trick that uses the domain name system. We call this "domain shadowing," and is when a phisher manipulates an unsuspecting company's DNS settings to insert multiple phishing sites onto the company's servers. This often results in hundreds of new phishing sites at a time.

Our statistics under-count the total amount of phishing that occurred in the wild — more attacks were undetected by our sources, and more attacks were reported but not confirmed. The numbers are a baseline compiled through collection and counting methods that have remained consistent over the years.

Those who operate Internet resources have the responsibility to do so in a secure and wise manner. We hope this report is helpful and provides information that will make the Internet a better place.
