More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

Thailand's government is hit with a denial-of-service attack, apparently the work of hacktivists unhappy with Internet censorship policies.

More on the Gaza Cybergang's activities in the Middle East, with notes on some of the crew's preferred phishbait, but still no attribution.

Russian hackers probed former US Secretary of State Clinton's private email account. How successful they were is publicly unknown.

WinRAR, the popular file compression and archiving utility, leaves users vulnerable to remote exploitation. Vulnerability Lab publishes a proof-of-concept exploit producing self-extracting archives able to execute malicious JavaScript when decompressed. (Malwarebytes says the exploit's buggy but readily tweaked into workability.)

A major malvertising infestation appears in some 3000 high-profile Japanese sites.

More notes appear on Mac Gatekeeper bypasses, a TrueCrypt vulnerability, and XCodeGhost's implications for whitelisting.

Famous screenwriter Aaron Sorkin calls the Sony hack "terrorism" and excoriates news media who published leaked emails. (That the DPRK hit the company has become conventional wisdom, but for a useful reminder that things are usually more complicated, see this perspective from Norse: cyber attacks are often more like looting during a riot than they are a meticulously planned Ocean's Eleven heist.)

This is the first day of Cyber Awareness Month, and many observers reflect on trends.

Rating services, central banks, and regulators call on industry to improve security or face consequences ranging from downgrades to sector-wide cascading cyber disaster.

Reviews of the Sino-American modus vivendi trend tepid as nations grope toward intenational cyber norms. Most observers agree cyber crime will continue as usual.

Notes.

Today's issue includes events affecting Australia, China, Egypt, Estonia, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, Russia, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, and Yemen.
