Computer Hack?

First we're hearing about it, though we noticed a lot of anti-virus stuff running in the stations lately. This probably explains it:
  • Just curious why there is no talk of the massive computer hack of department computers that's going on 4 days now. Direct from the brains at 35th Street, nearly a quarter of computers are infected with a virus that routes all information to a remote server in Amsterdam, and from there no one knows. The Department can't get a handle on it, and won't tell anyone if their personal info stored in the finance division has been compromised. If this were the private sector, the best and brightest would be hired to fix it in a day. The 3RD largest police department with a treasure trove of personal information on anyone from cops to felons can't get it fixed after several days. Good to know both how secure our servers are and how much the department cares.
Hey FOP? Hey PBPA? Has everyone's info been compromised? Hey City of Chicago? Are we going to be getting some half-assed letters about "free credit reports" coming our way because you can't be bothered to actually run a secure network?

This is what happens when they cut the silly budget and reduced the IT people in house. If you have noticed the CPD is still using Windows XP on 90% of all Department computers. Windows is not supporting XP on any of these devices. And the Virus protection has not been updated on these same computers.

If you do not recall when they first signed on with DELL and bought all the new computers and printers they had no Floppy drives only CD drives. So we could not download anything to a disk only a USB drive. Then they discovered the USB drives were shorting out since the system was not wired for USB drives being plugged in and pulled out so much. DID DELL EAT THAT ONE. Then they pulled printers out of units reducing the locations you could print any documents. Great for a paperless Department. But we still printed up an arrest report......

They refused to order paper or ink and now you have unknown hackers searching the City Intranet. From reports at Corp Counsel, City Hall and 35th street this is growing worse. Finance was seeing traffic at Odd hours when office was closed. YOU SEE HOW IT IS DONE.
If Snowden could Hack document while working in the CIA or NSA what do you think happens when they dismiss some IT contractors who were all over the Department Intranet one day and then jobless the next?

It is a closed system is what they tell the BOSSES but the BOSSES cannot find the restroom unless its marked for them. There are plenty of back doors to enter from.
Now that most IT calls for service go out of state to be answered.

Why do I know all of this? Because the reports of illegal searches and name checks flow across a desk that I pay close attention to. The person that use to sit there is back on street in Englewood showing the colors. Way to go 9.5

The City and Department brought this upon themselves and now deny its happening.
By the way anyone seen McJersey shore? He was one of the best Offenders at starting something that will never be finished.

Start searching LIFELOCK services or sign up with the Credit History companies to protect your credit. Take that FOP medallion and stickers off your ride that is parked in front of your home. Up in 016 it only takes a walk with the dog to find where all the cops cars are parked. Most of this is common sense.........
But who uses common sense running a police department?

As a former system and network engineer let me say the following; as any copper can tell you, no house or business is "burglar proof". Given proper tools and and enough time any lock(s) or alarms system can be overcome.

The same is true with computer networks. Especially ones that are sloppily administered. ANY computer or network that is connected to the Internet is completely vulnerable to being hacked. Even ones that are not connected to the Internet are vulnerable dependent on physical access. You can suck a lot of info onto a USB drive if you can get in front of a screen.

All that being said, personnel, vigilant monitoring and proper software and hardware can reduce and minimize the amount of data compromised. I have read here that some CPD computers are still running WIN XP (which has exceeded it's life cycle and is no longer supported by Microsoft.) THAT is sloppy administration.

A big problem the CPD probably has, other then incompetent IT people, is dated routers especially those with WiFi. Such routers were compromised years ago and they are not being supported by their manufacturers anymore so there is no chance, even if possible, to get any security updates to patch the wide open breaches these devices have. Look at the routers in your offices if they are more then 4 years old they are almost certainly vulnerable. Even a VPN is of limited value because of "a man in the middle" attack. There are personal solutions such as small portable routers with built in NAT firewalls but I can see problems there with accusations of a cop trying to conceal things. Of course these would only protect your personal stuff the data you input into the system from your computers would be an open book to hackers. The fix is going to cost money, a lot of money. The best solution, and most cost effective, is to have your system taken over by a commercial outfit such as IBM. IBM handles the computer needs of entire governments. With IBM when you have a problem the people who fix it are computer engineers, real ones, not people who stayed in a Holliday Inn.

There is one thing to think about which might put a smile on your face. If the CPD has been hacked you can bet money on the fact Rahm Emanuel, and his cronies have been hacked as well.

Here is a link to a posting on the Ars Technica site about this. Once you read this if your router at home falls into this category dump it and purchase a new one.

And the ACLU are they going to kick in to secure those data bases they want sent directly to them in undisclosed locations?

House Call, once called PC-Cillin is a very affective fix if you think you have a problem. Just because the CPD IT types can't keep their computers protected doesn't mean you can't protect yours.

After 12 years, support for Windows XP ended April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. It is very important that customers and partners migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows 10.

Versions newer than our antiquated system:
Windows XP Professional x64
Windows Vista
Windows 7
Windows 8
Windows 8.1

We have to remember that now the entire Chicago Police Department is now operating on a PSN which in turn leaves the department volnuverable to any attacks. Since the ACLU operates on the same network maybe and most likely they got hacked, thereby affecting police department computers. Remember they have access to all ISR's.

To avoid trial most likely, he pled guilty to stealing $1.2 mil from CPSA. But, he left it up to judge to decide his sentence, possibly hoping Judge Diane Cannon was going to give him probation. Instead, she hit him with 12 years, that is 1 year in prison for every $100,000 stolen per CCSA. It was at time of his initial sentencing, by Cannon, that he was remanded and jailed at min. security facility.

However, after many hearing delays, and, once CCSA did turn over to CPSA almost 1/2 a million, to be more exact, just under $450,000 in (possibly liquidated at that point) seized assets, his defense attorneys requested his sentence be reduced. This still left $650,000, he claimed he was unable to pay back, accounted for by his swank and swanky lifestyle and the debts it created.

It was not until CPSA recovered the $450,000 seized by CCSA, that Judge Cannon did acquiesce, rounding down the amount officially "paid back" to CPSA, for sentencing, from just under $450,000 to $400,000.

Per her formula, she reduced his original sentence of 12 yrs. down to 8 years i.e. one year shaved for each $100,000 he indirectly paid back to CCSA.

CCSA, CPSA and Defense were all in agreement on decision.

Unlike other states, in Illinois, you automatically serve only half your sentence. Now we're down to 4 years. He had already been serving time during excessively lengthy pre-trial process.

Add to that a couple of months reduction for staying in his corner with his dunce cap on, per IDOC's pov.

Yes, a civil suit was brought against him. But, before his arrest, he was gambling heavily and lived a lavish lifestyle he could not afford. He was in heavy debt, second-mortgaged to the hilt, couldn't keep up payments on his homes, which had lowered in value during recession going on at time.

Nor, supposedly, could he keep up payment to his attorneys. Nor could he, supposedly, sell things off during recession.

NOBODY in CPSA wanted him off hook. Except his now deceased wife who died of cancer during the proceedings. She was Treasurer at that time. And was going to be charged until CPSA learned she was dying, and that he and she had married.

Yes, he still has some loyal patsies. But, despite what some say, it actually appeared that the system worked well enough to break him. Appeared. And still appears.

And now this just happened.

If him or his father did anything illegal in securing those contracts the Federal Government would have prosecuted. Right?

The fact that relatives and friends of the ex mayor got a nice chunk of city contracts compared to average smucks was a coincidence. Right?

When asked about every major scandal that happened in twenty years the mayor usually answered with some form of denial of knowledge. We should take him at his word. Right?

Will the Feds first step in and look at all the theft from misappropriation of our money? Will the Feds look into vaneko Daley and the 60 million of our pension money absconded with, and what pension board heads allowed this and indict them?

Work for CDOT....Got hammered by the Deputies and IT Department because our staff had the "automatic update" box checked on their city issued netbooks for Microsoft updates. not a big deal...right? Wrong ! Well, the city's MANDATED programs started not to work.

No one could figure it out except for one guy.

It seems that the ones that had the "automatic update" box checked ended up having Internet Explorer 11 and the shitty programs ARE NOT compatible with IE 11, ones that didn't have the box checked have IE 8 and work fine. Everyone that had IE 11 had to DOWNGRADE to 8 so the shitties MANDATED programs would work.

It's funny because Microsoft sent a Global notice that effective Jan. of 16 they would no longer support 8,9 and I believe 10 also. There would be no security, no patches nothing. They warned to upgrade or be susceptible to hacks.

Once you get in ...you can drive through the whole damn thing!

10 hour days?

Hey hard charger. You’ll get it soon enough but why do you want to sell yourself like a $10 whore? The whole department wants to know why your so special? Are you better than the rest of us? If you want the 10 hour day right now this instant put a par form for the 5th district and come and work with us out south. If not and wait for a couple of weeks. You’ll get soon enough, but your instant gratification is shit. F-ing hair gels believe your own bullshit. Question couldn’t you make the cut for the black site at Homan Square.

News flash your not so special.

I had the admin code for the computers once, I loaded kaspersky on the computers in the sergeant's office. Both had 26 Trojans on them. Our computers have been compromised for a long time. Some were so deeply imbedded in the registry that it couldn't be removed. The Huberman legacy.

I think it's usually $9.99 a month. But this should at least be a more important issue come contract time instead of new cars that the city is REQUIRED to give us anyway! Fucking idiots who voted for this guy dean. This financial theft world we live in now is waaay more important than some new explorer. Think! We are being targeted, and the department has to pay.

I posted the original comment on the main page a few days ago. Just an update - Unisys was out 2 days ago working on our computers. Our unit is VERY close to Lewin's heart, so perhaps we got a little extra attention. The tech said that Windows XP lost support in 2014, which is why the system was easily breached and difficult to fix. We're beyond 5 days now, and our terminals still aren't working - which means the system is still compromised. Now ask yourself this - just how much information can a hacker get with 5 days of unfettered access to a system? The answer is - ALL of it!! Protect yourself, spend the 10-20 bucks a month for identity protection. The Department could care less. They still won't publicly admit it's happening.

(OT)

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/02/02/fewer-than-100-attend-first-forum-on-police-accountability-task-force/


Fewer than 100 attend first forum on Police Accountability Task Force


Fewer than 100 people turned out for the first of four meetings of the mayor’s Task Force on Police Accountability.

Police Board President Lori Lightfoot told those who attended the forum, at the Mount Vernon Baptist Church JLM Life Center, at 2622 W. Jackson Blvd., that the stakes are high.

“We believe that this is a very important moment in the life of our city,” she said.

A number of speakers called for an elected replacement for the Police Board and the Independent Police Review Board. Others called for a crackdown on brutal or trigger-happy officers. Speaker David O’Banion said he would start by locking up the officer who shot 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

“If we would just see to it that (Officer) Jason Van Dyke went to jail for what he’s done, the rest of the officers don’t want to go to jail and that would curb the officers from killing our babies,” he said as members of the audience applauded.

Additional forums are scheduled Feb. 11, 23 and 25.

If that school accepts public money (which, of course, it does), then segregated housing is illegal.

Possibly the judge suffers from HOPLOPHOBIA, lot of that going around.

Hoplophobia is a political neologism coined by retired American military officer Jeff Cooper as a pejorative to describe an "irrational aversion to weapons." It is also used to describe the "fear of firearms" or the "fear of armed citizens." Hoplophobia is a political term and not a recognized medical phobia

After 29 and a day retired as a detective. Now work for two law firms doing what I was train to do.
Both of these law firms hire outside IT firms to come in every month to sweep firms computers.
They say that this prevents possible hacking. Just like when they sweep the firm for any listening devices.

Yes the firms pay to keep thier secrets all locked up. The one firm started back in the 50's when the phones were all taped.......

Hey asswipe. Giving you the 10 hr day is a violation of the contract. The FOP is not in the business of violating the contract. Only 005 and Area South Detectives havea 10 hr, or really, 10.5 hr, day.

No organization with a professional IT dept would allow a WIN XP computer on their network at this point. The only exception I can think of offhand would be a factory that needed a standalone WIN XP box with specific software to run a piece of machinery. And that computer would have no connectivity to the local network or the Internet.

As an aside, be aware that Microsoft will soon be making WIN 10 (with it's wide open privacy settings) a "recommended" upgrade to WIN 7 and WIN 8.x computers. This means it will be downloaded and installed without your permission. Adjust your Automatic Upgrade settings accordingly.

???????

Let me get this straight? No one in the city is writing the Investigative Stops unless completely justified per the ACLU’s bullshit order. The city has to get more so they pick off he weakest unit they can and have a meeting with all these 4 year wonders. Not one of these children have enough sense to understand they are being used. BUT not one of them has enough brains to call the union? So they are going to sell out to the city and not tell anyone?

I came on the job in the mid 80's we had an unofficial ticket slow down because the contract was expired three year. You wrote a ticket you were a pirana. But these goofs can’t see how they f@cked up?

Everyone of these hair gels who attended the meet on the QT with the city should be sanctioned. 90 days w/o legal defense sounds good but we take care of our own. But as post above states these goofs think their special? When they get sued for these Investigative Stops where will they run? Right to FOP for legal defense!

Lets see how many of these sellouts wind being made meritorious in the next round of promotions? Douche bags.

What I find interesting is that the practice of disclosing the contents of an intercepted radio transmission would seem to be illegal, under The Communications Act of 1934, specifically the following:

18 U.S. Code § 2511 - Interception and disclosure of wire, oral, or electronic communications prohibited
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2511


One of the things I was taught was that it was legal to listen to police frequencies (to determine the location of speed traps, like aircraft surveillance, etc) but it became illegal if you relayed that information to your driving buddies via CB radio, or even by signaling with headlight flashes.

So, since the Trib is disclosing this information they obtained from scanner traffic, isn't the act of publishing it illegal? Maybe some ACLU lawyer who is bored from looking at ISRs might want to look into this.

A professional police officer should work a full day.

A professional police officers should not sit in the Greek restaurant for 90 minutes.

A professional police officer would only make valid articulable stop of citizens.

A professional police officer would not stop a citizen just because some meritorious beauracrate want to get his next promotion by asking young officers lacking in sound judgment to make investigative stops for no valid police purposes.

A professional police officer would not take an assignment he or she did not deserve.

The saturation teams should be disbanded or restocked by more seasoned officers with common sense which is very uncommon.

It is probable that someone clicked on a "suspicious" email or message and the virus entered the system. The Internet can not stop viruses completely but they can and usually give you a warning that the site you are about to enter is "unsafe" or "suspicious". In the private sector, there is a division that handles all computer related requests. You can suggest that the department hire a "Computer Systems information crew.
