US Confirms Traveler Photos Stolen in Cyberattack

美國海關證實黑客竊取赴美游客照片、車牌等信息

Internet hackers have stolen tens of thousands of pictures of travelers and vehicles collected at the United States border.

網絡黑客竊取了數萬張在美國邊境收集到的游客和車輛的照片。

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, or CBP, officials confirmed the attack on Monday.The agency said the photographs were stolen from the computer network of a contractor that captures the images for the government.Officials did not name the contractor.

美國海關和邊境保護局(CBP)官員周一證實了這起黑客攻擊事件。該機構表示,這些照片是黑客從一家為政府拍攝這些圖像的分包商的計算機網絡上竊取的。官員們沒有透露這家分包商的名字。

A CBP spokesman told the Associated Press that the agency believes that the incident involved the photographs of fewer than 100,000 people.Images were taken of travelers in vehicles entering and leaving the United States at a single land border crossing over one-and-a-half months, the spokesman said.The images also included license plates of vehicles crossing the border.

海關與邊境保護局的一位發言人告訴美聯社,他們認為被竊取照片涉及近10萬人。這位發言人說,這些圖像涉及乘車出入一個陸地過境口岸的游客,拍攝時間長度超過1個半月。被竊取圖像還包括過境車輛的牌照。

The CBP said in a statement that it learned of the cyberattack on May 31.The agency said the government contractor violated CBP policies by copying the pictures to the company’s computer network.Officials said only the contracting company’s network was hit in the cyberattack.The CBP’s computer systems remained safe.

美國海關與邊境保護局在一份聲明中表示,他們是在5月31日得知發生此次網絡攻擊的。該機構表示,遭到攻擊的那家政府分包商違反了美國海關與邊境保護局的政策,將照片拷貝到該公司的電腦網絡上。官員們表示,只有分包公司的網絡受到了網絡攻擊。美國海關與邊境保護局的計算機系統仍然是安全的。

The CBP statement said none of the image information had so far been identified as appearing on the internet or the “dark web.”The dark web is a part of the internet that cannot be found through normal search engines.It uses digital tools to hide identifying information and is often used for criminal activity.

美國海關與邊境保護局發表聲明表示,到目前為止,還沒有任何圖像信息被確認出現在互聯網或“暗網”上。暗網是互聯網無法通過普通的搜索引擎訪問的部分。暗網使用數字工具隱藏識別信息,經常用于犯罪活動。

The CBP said it was working with other law enforcement agencies “to actively investigate” the attack.The agency said it had “removed from service” all equipment related to the incident and was closely watching all CBP work done by the contractor.

美國海關與邊境保護局表示,他們正與其他執法機構合作,“積極調查”此次網絡攻擊。該機構表示,已經關閉了所有相關設備的服務,同時密切關注所有通過分包商完成的美國海關與邊境保護局的相關工作。

“CBP takes its privacy and cybersecurity responsibilities very seriously and demands all contractors to do the same,” the agency statement said.

該機構聲明稱:“美國海關與邊境保護局非常重視其需要承擔的隱私和網絡安全責任,并要求所有分包商也這樣做。”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).The DHS described its automated vehicle license readers in a 2017 privacy document.The document said the readers are used for identifying, catching“and removing individuals illegally entering the United States at and between ports of entry or otherwise violating U.S. law.”

美國海關和邊境保護局隸屬于美國國土安全部。美國國土安全部在2017年的一份隱私文件中介紹了其自動車牌識別器。這份文件說,這些自動車牌識別器用于識別、逮捕和“驅逐在出入境口岸非法進入美國或以其他形式違反美國法律的個人”。

The license plate information is checked against existing records shared among 13 federal agencies, the AP reported.

據美聯社報道,車牌信息將與現有記錄進行比對,13個聯邦機構可調取這一信息。

Representative Bennie Thompson of Mississippi serves as chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security.Thompson noted that the incident was the “second major privacy breach at DHS this year.”

密西西比州眾議員本尼·湯普森是美國眾議院國土安全委員會主席。湯普森指出,這起事件是“美國國土安全部今年發生的第二起重大侵犯隱私事件”。

In March, the DHS’s inspector general announced the Federal Emergency Management Agencyhad wrongly released to a contractor the personal information of 2.3 million U.S. disaster survivors.

今年3月,美國國土安全部總檢察長宣布,聯邦緊急事務管理署(Federal Emergency Management Agency)誤向這家分包商提供了230萬美國災難幸存者的個人信息。

Thompson said in a statement that U.S. officials “must ensure we are not expanding the use of biometrics at the expense of the privacy of the American public.”

湯普森在一份聲明中說,美國官員“必須確保我們不會以犧牲美國公眾隱私為代價來擴大使用生物識別技術的應用范圍。”

The British computer security website The Register said the hacker responsible informed the publication in late May of the attack.The Register identified the government contractor as the company Perceptics.The company has not yet publicly discussed the hacking incident.

英國計算機安全網站The Register稱,竊取照片的黑客在5月底將這起網絡攻擊告知了媒體。The Register認為遭攻擊的政府分包商是Perceptics公司。目前該公司還未就這起黑客攻擊事件公開表態。

The Tennessee-based company describes itself as the provider of license-plate readers for passenger vehicle inspection“at all land border ports of entry in the United States, Canada and at the most critical lanes in Mexico.”

這家總部位于田納西州的公司自稱是用于客車檢查的車牌識別器供應商,“為美國和加拿大的所有陸地入境口岸和墨西哥大多數重要車道提供服務”。

Civil liberties groups have expressed concern at the general lack of rules covering license plate-reading cameras and image collection by government agencies and law enforcement.Critics say the technology carries the risk of abuses when the private information of citizens is widely shared among agencies or stolen in cyberattacks.

很多公民自由組織表達了他們的擔憂,因為車牌識別攝像頭以及政府機構和執法部門收集圖像信息的行為普遍缺乏規定。批評人士表示,當公民的私人信息被機構間廣泛共享或在網絡攻擊中被竊取時,這項技術存在被濫用的風險。
