What Guccifer 2.0 and the Bears were up to, hacking the DNC, and why you should care (trust us—you should). Attend ThreatConnect’s webinar to find out.

Daily briefing.

Observers continue to sift through the hacked AKP emails as the Turkish government firmly re-establishes control over the country. The Pastebin dump is accompanied by the hacker’s explanation of his motives—most agree that Phineas Phisher is indeed behind the hack.

Flashpoint has released a report detailing the technical toolkits being used online by jihadists adhering to ISIS and its competitors. While the study acknowledges that ISIS has expansive aspirations to extensive cyber-attack capabilities, the jihadists’ core requirement is “consistent channels through which they can release propaganda.” Flashpoint sees their technologies falling into these categories: secure browsers, virtual private networks and proxy services, protected email services, mobile security applications, encrypted messengers, and mobile propaganda applications.

Ransomware and distributed denial-of-service have been the principal trends in cybercrime this year, and an Akamai study of the second suggests that criminals may be preparing long-duration campaigns. Technicians who can help enterprises mitigate DDoS attacks are in high demand.

The US Library of Congress acknowledged that it sustained a DDoS attack that began Sunday. The attack has been contained and is now under investigation. Turk Hack Team claimed responsibility on a message board, but that attribution is unconfirmed.

Google has patched forty-eight bugs in Chrome, one of them a serious sandbox escape vulnerability.

The Tor Project has turned its attentions to ways of keeping smart homes effectively anonymous.

Both the Wassenaar cyber arms control regime and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA) remain unpopular among those who see them as inimical to security research.

NHTSA and Vehicle Cybersecurity (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) In 2013, 32,719 people died on the Nation's roadways.
