More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

Download the new CyberWire podcasts.

We're delighted to be able to share a little news of our own this morning.

With the support of our sponsors, academic and research partners, and the community, we're pleased to be officially launching two new podcasts (you can read the the press release here).

The CyberWire Daily Podcast is published each weekday afternoon (in time for US East Coast drive-time), and the Week-in-Review is published Fridays. Shows are available on the CyberWire website, and also on iTunes.

We've also invited distinguished academic and research organizations to partner on the educational segments of every show. Organizations wishing to become an Academic or Research Partner are invited to contact the editorial team.

Something else you might notice is the opportunity to support the CyberWire's news products through sponsorship. Many have been asking about this over the years, and as we have grown from a small cyber intelligence briefing to a global news publication with readers in more than one hundred twenty countries, we felt the timing was right to offer the opportunity to the many organizations that have become our dedicated supporters. Our aim is to continually improve the CyberWire, and keep it free for our readers and listeners.

We hope you enjoy the new podcasts. Be sure to let us know what you think.

Ukraine suffers another cyber attack from, it appears, Russia, this one disabling systems at Kiev's airport. Like the December power grid hack, CERT-UA says this incident is associated with BlackEnergy malware. Meanwhile, the US Department of Homeland Security encourages US utilities to shore up their security.

Tensions between Russia and its neighbors continue to be attended by "patriotic" hacktivism, most recently from Azerbaijan, whence hackers (in solidarity with Turkey) defaced the website of Russia's embassy in Israel.

ISIS sympathizers conduct what's apparently their first action against a Chinese target, defacing Tsinghua University's website with messages calling for jihad.

ISIS messaging showed signs of becoming shakier last week. Rivalry with al Qaeda for jihadi mindshare is increasing, and sympathizers seem disillusioned by realities in the territories ISIS controls.

Digital currency exchange Cryptsy is looted of six million US dollars worth of Bitcoin.

Hyatt releases results of its investigation into point-of-sale hacks (mostly in restaurants) the chain experienced between August and December of last year. Many of the affected locations are reported to be in the Middle East and Africa.

Security analysts note a surge in PayPal "zero-dollar" invoice spam.

DDoS attacks independently strike a large torrent service and a South Korean entertainment agency. Neither appears to be serving as misdirection for larger campaigns.

Liability, regulation, and litigation continue to shape emerging cyber standards of care. Noteworthy are ongoing Safe Harbor negotiation, a US Wassenaar implementation restart, and several pending lawsuits.

The Crackas-with-Attitude take a poke at the White House science advisor.

Notes.

Today's issue includes events affecting Australia, Azerbaijan, Canada, China, European Union, Finland, France, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Republic of Korea, Poland, Russia, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States.
