Daily briefing.

The Republic of Korea is investigating an intrusion into one of its military command networks. No attribution, yet, although a priori speculation naturally turns toward Pyongyang.

US state election officials continue to worry about vote hacking. The Department of Homeland Security warns that potential attackers have been scanning state election systems, and it invites the states to seek Federal assistance in securing the vote.

The Internet-of-things grows in attractiveness to cybercriminals, who notice the effect IoT botnets have had over the last two weeks in attacks against OVH and KrebsOnSecurity. The source code, "Mirai," used to herd the bots used for distributed denial-of-service against KrebsOnSecurity was released in an underground forum over the weekend.

"DressCode" malware is circulating in the wild, with malicious apps offered in Google's Play Store thought particularly worrisome. DressCode can be used by attackers to pivot from an infected Android device into an enterprise network.

In industry news, Tanium is reported to be preparing an IPO, possibly in six months. The UK financial press says DarkTrace is also mulling a public offering.

Vint Cerf: Modern Media Is Made for Forgetting (Motherboard) Vint Cerf, the living legend largely responsible for the development of the Internet protocol suite, has some concerns about history. In his current column for the Communications of the ACM, Cerf worries about the decreasing longevity of our media, and, thus, about our ability as a civilization to self-document—to have a historical record that one day far in the future might be remarked upon and learned from. Magnetic films do not quite have the staying power as clay tablets

'We're going backward!' (Communications of the ACM) In caves in Lascaux, France, magnificent artworks were discovered from 17,300 years ago. Cuneiform clay tablets written over 5,000 years ago are still readable today (if you happen to know Akkadian, Eblaite, Elamite, Hattic, Hittite, Hurrian, Luwian, Sumerian, Urartian, or Old Persian). Egyptian hieroglyphic writing was more or less contemporary with cuneiform and papyrus manuscripts dating from about 4,600 years ago have survived.
