Daily briefing.

Late Friday Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) shut down operations after it was hit by what's been vaguely characterized as "a virus." More information is expected this week. TSMC is a major supplier of chips to Apple.

Salesforce has warned customers that a leaky API may have inadvertently exposed their data.

TCM Bank, which provides about seven-hundred-fifty community banks in the US with an option to offer bank-branded credit cards, disclosed that a misconfigured website exposed data on card applicants between March 2017 and July of this year. The information includes names, addresses, dates of birth and Social Security numbers.

A few healthcare IT systems in Hong Kong have been infected with cryptoransomware.

The hood who's (apparently) behind GrandCrab ransomware is sore at Ahn Labs, who developed a "vaccine" against his malware. He's retaliated by sending Bleeping Computer an alleged zero-day for an Ahn product.

With data drawing commercial, criminal, and intelligence service attention the way meat draws flies, the US Census Bureau is working to secure its 2020 census—the first one to be "fully digital"—against data theft.

The attraction of data, and the pull toward the monetization of information, would seem so strong as to be virtually irresistible. Unless Facebook, as Talleyrand is supposed to have said of France's restored Bourbon monarchy, "has forgotten nothing and learned nothing," there's an example of that pull in the social media giant's recently disclosed approach to banks. They'd like ways of gaining access to customer financial information through their platform. 

Notes.

Today's issue includes events affecting Australia, China, India, Israel, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States.

We're off the Las Vegas tonight for Black Hat. We'll have periodic reports from the conference over the course of the week.
