This week in security news, news ending the week March 28, 2020

Hello folks, what a week we’ve had in the cyber security field this week. We continue to see phishing in regards to Covid-19, security has gone up for those working from home, and of course the webinar that we published as part of podcast 342.

I think the biggest news out of this week comes out of Hong Kong. Their IOS users are targeted in an attack from poisoned news campaigns. While I’ve not read the article, this proves my point in Hey Criminals! Keep your hands off our kids and their data! That point I was making was that Google isn’t the only problem, yet we hear more about them than anything else.

Its sad that poisoned news is the topic, but the good news out of this is that these links are posted to forum sites leading to supposed news stories. My tip? Go to the news source for news, not a forum unless its a trusted link where a discussion of such things are regular like this blog for example.

News also came out about the Wawa Breach and an article talking why we should use dark web monitoring. I believe services like Lastpass do this, but I don’t remember whether or not they do this as part of their free services.

Other interesting news talks about how the cybersecurity industry is stepping up to defend places like hospitals and other essential services from these big time attacks that are targeting them during this difficult time. It was also reported by a source I follow that indicated that some ransomware gangs would stop targeting hospitals and the like until this crisis is over. I hope they’ll follow their word.

For links to these and other stories, Nefilim Ransomware Threatens to Expose Stolen Data is the article, and of course the comment boards here and there await your thoughts.

Please stay safe and do feel free to contact me with questions. I’ll be sure to answer them to the best of my knowledge.
