Podcast: Hackers Get Hacked, SWIFT Attacks and a Ruling from the Supreme Court

A new episode of the SurfWatch Cyber Risk Roundup has been posted, Episode 70: Hackers Get Hacked, SWIFT Attacks and a Ruling from the Supreme Court:

The hacker forum Nulled.io was breached and the sensitive information of its members was made publicly available. SWIFT warned of more attacks against banks at the same time the Anonymous OpIcarus campaign hit more financial sector targets. LinkedIn discovered its 2012 breach was much bigger than previously thought. And a couple of researches upset OkCupid by publishing data on 70,000 of the dating site’s users. This week’s advisories included more developments in the cat-and-mouse game around the CryptXXX ransomware, an alert on an old SAP vulnerability, an Android banking Trojan and click-fraud botnet, and more PayPal phishing scams. This week also saw a highly anticipated Supreme court ruling on a privacy-related class action lawsuit, the continuation of financial institutions lawsuit against Home Depot, and a new lawsuit around a breach of W-2 information at aircraft maintenance company Haeco. A judge also ruled the FBI did not have disclose a vulnerability in the Firefox browser, and the U.S. saw its first conviction in the hack of newswires that generated $100 million in profit. Also, the LinkedIn breach revealed another round of terrible password habits.
