More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

It appears that Russian intelligence services were behind the recent cyber espionage campaign that targeted Germany's Bundestag. The German government isn't attributing the spying to Moscow (yet) but Spiegel's sources (and the Register's) tell them it's a slam-dunk.

Apparent Russian involvement in the recent breach at the United States' IRS raises awareness of the usefulness of personal information in recruiting agents (that is, people induced to cooperate with a foreign intelligence service). Getting and using such information is certainly a part of traditional espionage tradecraft; cyberspace is simply a newly accessible source of data.

The New York Times claims that "well-paid" Russian trolls are responsible for cyber-enabled information operations against US targets. They sometimes pose as ISIS operatives, but, says the Times, they're actually operating from St. Petersburg.

ISIS itself continues to surprise (hostile) observers with its adept use of social media. Indeed, its operations illustrate how loose inspiration can be an effective surrogate for command-and-control (a lesson the late Osama Bin Laden was belatedly learning during his years in the Pakistani wilderness).

Popular GitHub repositories are found susceptible to modification using weak SSH keys.

A fraud campaign aims at installation of malicious apps in non-jailbroken iOS devices.

A number of new products are being launched at Infosecurity Europe 2015.

Reaction to this week's passage of the USA Freedom Act — the Patriot Act's successor — continues. In general privacy advocates give the legislation a muted cheer. Others see reason for the US Intelligence Community to be modestly satisfied with the bill.

Notes.

Today's issue includes events affecting China, France, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Pakistan, Russia, Spain, Syria, United States.
