More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

More emails from US political figures are leaked, this time from the Republican side of the aisle. Many of the emails are relatively recent. Those that have drawn the most attention are from former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who has unpleasant things to say about both Presidential nominees. The Republican National Committee says that, contrary to early reports, it was not itself hacked, but that various Republican operatives were.

(On doxing generally, it's striking that email, considered as a genre, almost never brings credit to its authors. There are doubtless many reasons that's so, but the topic awaits its Aristotle.)

DCLeaks posted the leaked emails. This site for several years has represented itself as the work of “American hacktivists who respect and appreciate freedom of speech, human rights and government of the people.” Most observers, however, call DCLeaks "Russia-connected." ThreatConnect says they're Fancy Bear. If so, this would be instance of what experts consider an increasing Russian cyber operations tempo, and an increasing indifference to detection.

The attack on the World Anti-Doping Agency is also seen as part of this trend. The attackers have even festooned their sites with images of bears.

US authorities have declined to attribute these incidents, and they've asked for public patience, but they've also said they intend to "impose costs" on those responsible.

Kaspersky reports that RAA ransomware has morphed into a newly threatening form. Businesses are advised to be wary.

Control's Unfettered Blog warns that intelligent ICS relays are demonstrably susceptible to hacking.
