The Lizard Squad is back with DDoS attacks against gaming company Blizzard. The Janet education network was also hit with more DDoS attacks. More stolen W-2 and personal information was used to file fraudulent tax returns, this time affecting employees of Baltimore City and the Catholic Archdiocese of Denver. On the advisory front there were more WordPress warnings, scary new ransomware, and the end of support for QuickTime for Windows. Legal stories included a jury awarding electronic medical record company Epic Systems $940 million in damages, Microsoft suing the federal government, and breach-related class action lawsuits moving forward against several organizations. Plus, a judge told Ashley Madison users they cannot remain anonymous.
