Syrian (anti-regime, in this case) and Pakistani hacktivists continue low-level cyber rioting. Ottoman revanchists show their long-standing and quite inexplicable fixation on US Midwestern municipal governments by hitting the City of Wichita.
Subscription software vendors are attractive cyber crime targets, as last week's Adobe hack suggests. That breach appears to have been the work of the same gang that struck large data brokers a few weeks earlier. Adobe's source code may have been the principal target (although nearly 3 million credit cards were compromised) and some researchers think the breach may prove a "gateway to a new generation of viruses, malware, and exploits." Adobe works aggressively to restore security. (Gmail users take note—Gmail has been interpreting Adobe password reset messages as spam.)
Cyber criminals are said to have breached the UK's National Health Service, with medical records of the wealthy and well-connected being targeted. Post-Silk Road, the US FBI's Bitcoin wallet is being pranked by microcommentary in the form of microtransactions. The FBI now owns millions in Bitcoins and is mulling how to dispose of them, because surely the Dread Pirate Roberts won't be permitted to enjoy his loot.
Cyber insurance is rapidly coming of age, and companies are being required to undergo network security checks for what medical insurers would call "pre-existing conditions."
Financial institutions in the US and UK prepare for a significant round of cyber drills.
Britain's cabinet shuffle changes the cyber portfolio. Russia will run massive cyber (and other) surveillance during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
