A new episode of the SurfWatch Cyber Risk Roundup has been posted, Episode 65: Panama Papers, Never-Ending Ransomware and New Cyber Legislation:
This week saw a massive leak of 11.5 million documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, and that information is impacting politicians, business leaders and entertainers across the world. Among the week’s other trending cybercrime events were Turkish Citizens having their personal information posted online, more hospitals being hit with ransomware, another likely breach at Trump Hotel Collection, and vBulletin Forums being hacked. On the advisory front, new ransomware variants and WordPress attacks continue to make headlines along with a proof-of-concept Firefox extension vulnerability dubbed “extension reuse attack.” Legal developments include pending draft legislation on encryption, an amendment to Tennessee’s data breach notification law, and data breach lawsuit updates from Lamps Plus, Anthem and Intuit. Also, Microsoft discovered that teaching a bot to talk like a Millennial may not be such a good idea.
