More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

The Panama Papers seem to have claimed another government in Europe, as Ukraine's Prime Minister Yatsenyuk resigned Sunday. Yatsenyuk seems not to have been named in the leaked documents, but other names, including that of Ukraine's President Poroshenko, have appeared. UK Prime Minister Cameron is also addressing claims he used offshore accounts. Reuters reports that authorities in El Salvador Friday raided offices of Mosack Fonseca, the law firm at the center of the incident, seizing records and computers.

How the leak was accomplished remains obscure, but observers see it as a bellwether. First, it's now possible to process rapidly millions of documents that would formerly have taken years to sift. Second, hacking to impugn reputations can be expected to increase.

Anonymous dislikes the gig economy, at least in Italy. The hacktivist collective leaks personal information of CEOs and other managers at "hot" Italian companies to protest Italy's new labor laws.

Adobe patched Flash Player Thursday, and laggards seem to have a bit of breathing room: Malwarebytes says criminals have botched the vulnerability's integration into the Magnitude exploit kit. This won't last, so patch soon.

The Dridex infrastructure has evolved to paycard credential theft and ransomware distribution, researchers at buguroo report.

A discussion draft of a US Senate bill that would require vendors to decrypt their products leaked late last week. Few observers like what they see.

Its San Bernardino demand withdrawn, the US Justice Department still wants Apple's help unlocking another iPhone, this one a New York drug trafficking case.
