More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

The US General Services Administration publishes an IG report detailing what it calls a mistake, not a breach. A Slack misconfiguration could potentially have exposed personally identifiable information and contractor proprietary information, but GSA says such data appear not to have been compromised.

ISIS shifts its online recruiting strategy in Central Asia, and continues to draw information ops fodder from Sykes-Picot.

FireEye warns that maliciously crafted Microsoft Office files are serving as vectors for the recently patched Flash zero-day.

A Google Project Zero bug hunter reports a memory exploitation vulnerability in Symantec’s core Antivirus Engine.

Clickjacking, says Skycure, afflicts most older Android devices. Privilege escalation is among the risks the vulnerability poses.

A click-fraud botnet, Btidefender reports, is using the Redirector.Paco Trojan to afflict “AdSense-like programs.” The principal victims of clickfraud are, of course, advertising budgets and the companies who burn through them on the strength of bogus interactions.

enSilo analyzes “Furtim,” “stealthy,” “paranoid” malware now circulating in the wild. The exploit was recognized by a researcher known by the handle “@hFireFox.” Furtim is noteworthy for the large number of checks it makes for AV measures. Its servers also send the malicious code only once. (The payload has three elements: a power configuration file, Pony infostealer, and a third, as yet unknown bit of malware.)

Observers continue to look at the SWIFT funds transfer system. Some conclude its security procedures need an overhaul.

Barron’s suggests Cisco’s forthcoming guidance may disappoint. Avanan and illusive both announce new rounds of venture funding.

Cyber Attacks, Threats, and Vulnerabilities

GSA says cyber ‘mistake’ was ‘no breach'; others investigate (Washington Post) A Government Services Administration office known as 18F functions as a computer consultancy for federal agencies and says it was “built in the spirit of America’s top tech startups.” But this government tech start-up had a technical slip-up of its own

The current generation of clickbots such as the Redirector.Paco Trojan have taken abuse to a whole new level, burning through companies’ advertising budget at an unprecedented pace

Furtim: The Ultra-Cautious Malware (enSilo) Furtim is the latest stealthy malware, found in the wild, and its discovery is credited to @hFireF0X. Clearly, Furtim’s developers were more interested in keeping their malware hidden from security’s prying eyes than hitting more targets. With stealth a key component, we code-named this downloader Furtim, the Latin translation for “stealthy”

Analyzing Furtim: Malware that Avoids Mass-Infection (Breaking Malware) Recently we came across a new malware strain, first discovered by @hFireF0X, and at point of discovery, it was not detected by any of the 56 anti-virus programs tested by VirusTotal service
