More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

ISIS-sympathizing hackers take down another target-of-opportunity, French television network TV5Monde. Libya's Ansar al-Sharia takes a step toward aligning itself with the aspiring Caliphate (and the Libyan group's social media activity increasingly resembles that of ISIS).

Most observers finger Russian intelligence services in the long-running, long-investigated hacks of the US State Department and White House, but the White House itself declines any attribution as "not in our interest." (Diplomatic observers nonetheless see the US Administration dog-whistling an "I-know-what-you're-doing-online" warning in the direction of Moscow.) Russia officially denies any involvement, loyally seconded by the hardly disinterested journalists of Sputnik, who cite Kaspersky researchers on the virtual impossibility of attributing hacks to nations. (In fairness to Kaspersky, the company has long been very reticent with respect to attribution.) The White House says that, while no classified information was stolen, "sensitive" material was compromised.

Fox IT warns of a large-scale malvertising campaign that appears to be passing through a Google ad reseller. Heimdal warns of malice in Webpage Screenshot, a once popular app now removed from the Chrome store. ESET cautions against unexpected ZIP files that may contain the Waski malware downloader.

US-CERT alerts the public against the polymorphic downloaders of the AAEH family, and passes on the Network Time Foundation's NTP Project finding of vulnerabilities in the network time protocol daemon.

The White House hack raises investors' interest in cyber security stocks.

An Atlantic Council panel discusses the future of Iranian-US cyber conflict post-preliminary-nuclear-deal. (Watch the whole thing: cyberpeace isn't about to dawn.)

Drug Pump's Security Flaw Lets Hackers Raise Dose Limits (Wired) When Billy Rios needed emergency surgery last summer after cerebral spinal fluid began leaking through his nose, he was only partly focused on his life-threatening condition. That's because Rios was distracted by the computerized drug-infusion pumps Stanford Medical Center used to administer medication to him and other patients. As a security researcher, Rios realized he'd purchased the same models of pumps months earlier on eBay in order to examine them for security flaws. As he watched the pump dose him with meds, all he could think about were the holes he'd found in one of the brands that made it susceptible to hacking
