More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

Anti-regime hacktivists of Rucyborg leak financial details of the oligarchical Russian Industrial Investment Fund in a self-described protest against Russian President Putin's "insane" policies. More details emerge on hacks of NATO sites claimed by CyberBerkut. As the Russo-Ukrainian conflict moves closer to kinetic warfare, it's worth noting that most of the hacktivism (unless you believe CyberBerkut really is an independent group of pro-Russian Ukrainian patriots) seems to have been directed against the Russian government.

The Indonesian hackers of the "Black Angels" (who seem to be independent cyber vandals) deface the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES).

BGPmon reports that Google's public DNS service was briefly hijacked over the weekend.

Citroen falls to an Adobe ColdFusion backdoor exploit.

Rescator, the black market dealer in stolen payment card data, is hacked by a cyber vigilante who defaces Rescator's site and derides its customers as "miscreants and subhumans." (The episode may provide a useful way of thinking about the distinction, if any, between vigilantism and active defense.)

Windows XP, in its final weeks of life, will exact a cost from its users during its afterlife. ATMs and government agencies are prominent among XP holdouts. Banks are planning to pay for ATM security; agency strategies are less clear.

In the US, DARPA seeks to expand its stable of cyber performers. Technology Review runs an overview of startups nurtured by NSA.

Also in the US, Church Committee veterans petition the Government for a Church-like Congressional inquiry into Intelligence Community surveillance.

Exploiting vulnerabilities in media players to spread advanced malware (Help Net Security) Trusteer's research has shown that vulnerable media players are constantly targeted by malicious actors. Since in most environments media players exist on users' desktops for their own personal use, IT and security administrators ignore these applications and the content files they use. After all, you want to keep your employees productive and happy, and allow them to listen to their harmless music while they work. However, because these applications are not controlled, and users are not in a rush to patch these applications, most installations are vulnerable to exploits
