Daily briefing.

The city of Johannesburg sustained a breach Thursday that led it to suspend most online services. The group claiming responsibility, the "Shadow Kill Hackers," has said they'll publicly dump all the stolen data if they're not paid four Bitcoin today.

A ransomware attack against TrialWorks, a widely used legal case management system, has caused disruption of trials and schedules as TrialWorks recovers, and as the law firms that use the product look for workarounds and alternatives. BleepingComputer says the ransomware strain involved is so far unknown, but the attack resembles in some respects August incidents that involved GandCrab's successor REvil/Sodinokibi. TrialWorks says it's decrypting the affected files, which has led to speculation that they went ahead and paid the ransom.

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi died Saturday in Syria's Idlib Province, killing himself and three of his children as US special operations forces cornered him in a tunnel. According to the Voice of America, US Defense Secretary Esper said "late-breaking actionable intelligence" developed that morning enabled the attack to be executed within hours. Reuters says Al-Baghdadi was located with the assistance of captured ISIS leaders. Whatever its accuracy, this report and others like it will probably erode the terrorist group's relationships of trust. One of al-Baghdadi's principal lieutenants, spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, was, the Times reports, killed in a US airstrike hours after the Idlib raid. A Bloomberg op-ed argues that terrorist groups like ISIS have proven resilient to leaders' deaths. Expect any regrouping to be foreshadowed by information operations.

Emotet has been around for five years, and it's still going strong. The Australian Cyber Security Centre warned Friday that Emotet currently represents a high-level threat. Part of the banking Trojan's stubborn persistence may lie in some attention to detail that lends plausibility to its phishbait.

"I think Emotet actually pioneered the type of spam reply where you reply in the middle of a chain of existing conversations. You know, you get a spam email. And even grandma nowadays is kind of leery. Like, I don't think I really am getting emailed by Nigerian prince, right? But on the other hand, if you've got an email chain open with your friend, and someone replies back pretending to be your friend and is like, hey, I saw your email. You know, I just realized it hadn't been a while since we caught up. Check out this attachment I included. I really think we should go there next Friday. And so you look at it, and it's titled, like, boat adventure, you know? And you're like, that might be legitimate. You know, maybe my friend does want to go out on the lake this weekend."

—Craig Williams, head of Talos Outreach at Cisco, on the CyberWire Daily Podcast, 10.24.19.

Leave aside the dubious unfairness of picking on Grandma for the moment (especially since the US Federal Trade Commission has concluded that seniors are notably less gullible than youngsters). How sure are you that your bro' is actually the one who suggested that you check out the boat trip? It's still generic phishbait, but it also comes with the kind of shiny generic details you might find yourself biting on. Spit the hook, bro'.

Federal cloud market projected for major growth.

According to Coalfire’s latest report on FedRAMP, U.S. agencies spent $6.5B in cloud services in FY2018, an impressive 32 percent year-over-year increase, with the vast majority of Federal cloud migration still to come. SaaS/PaaS/IaaS providers can gain access to this market with significantly less investment in both time and cost by taking advantage of automation and recent FedRAMP program updates. Learn how.
