Expect some apparent Islamist cyber vandalism to be false flag hacks by state intelligence services — this would appear to be the lesson of the TV5 Monde hack, now regarded as a Russian operation. (It's important to note that much will still be committed by freelancing jihadists — one of whom just pled guilty to US Federal charges in Virginia — and some will be centrally directed by organized groups.)
Russian intrusion into Bundestag networks persists, too.
Kaspersky continues to receive good reviews for its handling of the Duqu 2.0 infestation it suffered. Many observers conclude on the strength of circumstantial evidence that Duqu 2.0 is an Israeli operation. Swiss police raid a facility possibly connected with surveillance of Iranian nuclear diplomacy; Austrian police undertake a related investigation.
The recently disclosed hack of the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) provides a contrasting incident response case study. While OPM did try to get ahead of the story, it increasingly appears that the news is worse than first reported: 14 million people, not 4 million, are apparently affected, and that figure may rise. Seeping bad news provides an unfortunate perspective on the Government's proposed fixes, like requiring https by the end of 2016. (Wikipedia turned https on by default this morning, for example — people are noticing.)
