3 trick consumers into thinking their computers were plagued by viruses WASHINGTON - Federal regulators have charged 14 firms and 17 people with impersonating major companies to trick consumers into thinking their computers were plagued by viruses so they could charge hundreds to fix the problems. The Federal Trade Commission said last week the action was part of a new international crackdown on such tech-support scams. The agency says a federal judge in New York City has issued an order halting six alleged scams and freezing their assets.Federal Trade Commission The FTC says the telemarketing schemes mostly operate from India and target English-speaking consumers in the U.S., Britain and other countries. The agency says the telemarketers claimed they worked for companies such as Microsoft and Dell, saying they had detected a virus or malware. They offered to fix the problems remotely for $49 to $450. The FTC alleged in lawsuits that the companies and individuals violated a federal law prohibiting unfair and deceptive practices, and the agency's telemarketing sales rule. It is seeking unspecified restitution for the affected consumers.

4 cyberattack on the computer network of its offshore drilling platforms TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran says it has successfully blocked a cyberattack on the computer network of its offshore drilling platforms, a semiofficial news agency reported Monday. The report by ISNA quoted Mohammad Reza Golshani, IT head of Iran's state offshore oil company, as blaming Israel for having planned the attack.Mohammad Reza Golshani Iran periodically reports the discovery of viruses and other malicious programs in government, nuclear, oil and industrial networks, blaming Israel and the United States. In May, Iran shut down part of its oil facilities because of another such cyberattack. Israel has done little to deflect suspicion that it uses viruses against Iran. In this case, Golshani said, the attack occurred over the past two weeks, was routed through China, and affected only the communications systems of the network. He said the main network was safe since it was isolated from the Internet, and was back to normal operations. Iran announced that it had temporarily disconnected its oil ministry and its main crude export terminal from the Internet after the May attack. Iran earns up to 80 percent of its foreign revenue from the export of crude. Iran is odds with the West over its nuclear program. The West suspects the program is aimed at developing weapons. Tehran denies the charge, saying its nuclear program is geared toward peaceful purposes like power generation and cancer treatment. A computer worm known as Stuxnet briefly brought Iran's uranium enrichment activity to a halt in 2010.
