More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

"MalwareTech," nom de hack of Marcus Hutchins, was a hero when his registration of a domain name inadvertently flipped WannaCry's kill switch back in May. He's now experiencing an unwelcome extension of his fifteen-minutes' fame: the FBI arrested him Wednesday, alleging that the security researcher is also the author of the Kronos banking Trojan. Hutchins was picked up in Las Vegas, where he'd been attending DEFCON.

The hoods behind Carbanak are circulating another crimeware tool, "Bateleur," which is being used against targets in the hospitality industry.

Kaspersky Lab reports that the biggest DDoS attack so far this year, in terms of duration, was experienced by Chinese telecom operators. The attack lasted two-hundred-seventy-seven hours, or more than eleven days.

The HBO hack is under FBI investigation. Despite corporate assurance to the contrary, many still fear email doxing.

German federal elections are scheduled for next month, and "of course" Russian intelligence services are expected to attempt to influence or otherwise undermine them. Observers think such attempts unlikely to succeed—for one thing, the element of surprise is gone, with influence operations already factored into public opinion. 

In the US, the Department of Homeland Security reports that thirty-three states and thirty-six local governments sought cybersecurity assistance for 2016 elections. Longstanding, well-known roadblocks—classification and security clearances—continue to impede such assistance. 

Investigations into Russian influence operations (special prosecutor Mueller has moved to establish a grand jury), leaks (from within the Administration) and misuse of intelligence (with Congressional concern) also proceed in the US.
