Twitter continues attempting to block the Islamic State from its platform, and ISIS adherents continue to keep pace by creating new accounts.

Ransomware isn't gone by any means, but some old-school device-locking malware is making the rounds: it's cheap, easy, and works often enough to make it worth the skid-criminal's shot. In the UK, some ransomware-bearing email has begun to display specific and accurate information about victims' addresses.

Some Samsung Galaxies are said to be exploitable even when locked. Exposed USB modems provide the attack surface.

Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Central Software has been patched. So has Chrome.

In industry news, Tenable, unicorn though it may be, doesn't want an IPO yet. On the other hand, Optiv is rumored to be getting ready to go public this year.

Privacy Shield remains controversial in Europe.

Those curious about what Mossack Fonseca, the law firm at the center of the Panama Papers uproar, might say on the incident may now consult the firm's comprehensive "Statement Regarding Media Coverage." They're concerned especially to dispel "supposition and stereotypes," educating the public on the nature of their business.
