A new episode of the SurfWatch Cyber Risk Roundup has been posted, Episode 75: Healthcare Leaks, POS Breaches, and Latest Malware and Legal News:

Several large healthcare databases have been put up for sale on the dark web, and the actor behind the leaks is promising more. Point-of-sale breaches made headlines this week at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas and Noodles & Company. More SWIFT attacks are impacting “dozens of banks.” Sports and cybercrime intersected as ransomware hit NASCAR and the SEC was the victim of a Twitter hack. Advisories this week include vulnerabilities in Symantec products that Google’s Project Zero called “as bad as it gets,” Bart and Cerber ransomware warnings, Marcher and Retefe banking Trojan developments, and a botnet utilizing CCTVs. The legal side saw congressmen urging HHS to examine ransomware, the FTC clarifying what they’re looking for during investigations, privacy lawsuits affecting both researchers and the FBI, and new and potential cybersecurity laws in Rhode Island and China. Lastly, a man is using technology to fight parking tickets.
