Daily briefing.

Hidden Cobra, the North Korean cyberespionage unit, has recently exhibited a higher level of activity. Observers expect this: increased espionage often accompanies periods of high-stakes diplomatic interaction, like the recent North and South Korean summit, and projected meetings between DPRK leader Kim and US President Trump.

Trend Micro offers an update on the FacexWorm, which researchers have been tracking since last year. The malware has picked up new, cryptomining functionality.

At the end of last week hackers made a raid on Mexico's banking transfer system. Three banks are said to have been affected: Banco del Bajio SA, Bancomext, and Grupo Financiero Banorte. They experienced unspecified difficulties in connecting to Mexico's central bank through SPEI, the country's interbank electronic transfer system. The attack seems to have been contained; the banks shifted their connections to an alternative contingency system.

Estimates of the cost of the Atlanta ransomware attack have now risen above $5 million.  SamSam appears to be moving toward targeting corporations.

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd has resigned over the Windrush immigration scandal. Sajid Javid will succeed her as Home Secretary.

Investigations into Russian influence operations targeting British elections show some notable Twitterbot activity mounted in the interests of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

In the US, The House Intelligence Committee has reported the results of its investigation into Russian attempts to influence US elections. Essentially the conclusion (with partisan animadversions from both sides) holds that the Russian government did seek to interfere, but that there's no serious evidence of US collusion.
