This week in Security News, news ending August 22, 2020

There is quite a lot in the news this week that might be of interest, including a city that is taking their security seriously.

  • A bug bounty program called ZDI awarded 25 million dollars within its 15 years
  • Experian has a very big problem and its 24 million this time, although I read an article on it saying its outside the United States
  • A stat as part of an article indicates that 94 percent of cyber attacks involve email as a starting point
    Connected cars and blind spots of cyber security
    Humans can make errors, and that can effect cyber security

Those are some of the highlights, but you might want to read the rest of the news. I’m sure since i’ve been absent that you’ve seen stuff of interest, so please feel free to send anything you want talked about.

We also learned through Michael in Tennessee about an arrest of someone for a 2016 hack. He sent me a link to the Cyberscoop article I’ve not read yet. More to come, but those are the big ones for now.
