Privacy Group Wins Court Battle With HMRC Over Spyware Investigation

May 13th 2014

A privacy group has successfully won a court battle with Her Majesty’s Revenue And Customs. It began after HMRC refused to disclose details into any investigation of Gamma, a firm accused of selling spyware to regimes that want to spy on their citizens.

Mozilla, who make the web browser Firefox, accused the firm of using the aesthetic of their browser as a camouflage to hide spyware on people’s computers. It’s allegedly used by criminal and intelligence agencies to access emails, chatroom talk, online conversations and hard drives. Reporters Without Borders claims that it was used in countries like Bahrain and United Arab Emirates to target journalists.

Privacy International wrote to HMRC in 2012. They demanded to see details of any investigation into Gamma, which has an office in Andover, England, as well as minutes of any meeting between them and the UK government. HMRC argued it was unable to provide the information because it was “in confidence”.

However, the High Court in London has ruled that HMRC must re-think its decision and comply with Privacy International’s demands. Their deputy director Eric King said: “Today’s ruling is an important victory.”

Gamma were the focus of international after a 108 page Citizen Lab report accused them of several things. Their writers claim that citizens who were supporters of the opposing party in Malaysia’s elections last May received emails that tricked them into installing their spyware FinSpy. They claim that the package is labeled as “firefox.exe” and contains the labeling, name and copyright descriptions of Mozilla’s browser.

The group have not yet commented on the allegations.

Tax Office Warns Of Phishing Emails Offering Rebates

February 11th 2014

The Tax Office is warning British citizens about phishing emails that offer rebates. The scams, according to the Tax Office, are being operated by gangs who are asking for your bank account or credit card details by providing fake rebates. More than 23,000 of these phishing emails were reported to the Tax Office in the months leading up to Christmas.

Mr. Gareth Lloyd, the Revenue Department’s digital security chief, said: “We never use emails to contact people who are due a tax refund. It’s always a letter through the post. Anyone receiving an email claiming to be from HMRC which offers a rebate should forward it to us—then delete it permanently.”

The Revenue Department managed to close over 170 websites last month alone including those where scam emails originated. The Tax Office shut down nearly 1500 during the whole of 2013. It’s currently working with police and enforcement agencies around the globe to find the criminals behind these scams.

Anyone who receives a suspicious email is being urged to forward it to the Tax Office’s investigators by emailing phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk.
