ISIS sympathizers resurface with some cyber vandalism of a Georgian ministerial website devoted to EU and NATO integration.

One notes with interest that Mexico is the largest single Hacking Team customer revealed in this week's leaked documents.
The fallout from the Hacking Team breach continues, most seriously in the form of a Flash vulnerability the leaks expose. Cyber criminals, who've already integrated it into the well-known Angler, Neutrino, and Nuclear exploit kits, are now exploiting that vulnerability in the wild. A Flash patch from Adobe is expected hourly; in the meantime security analysts recommend disabling Flash.
Security companies Kaspersky and Symantec identify and describe an attack group variously known as "Morpho" and "Wild Neutron." Apparently a criminal as opposed to a state-sponsored operation (although it's early) Morpho is suspected of intrusion into corporate networks and of specifically targeting physical security systems.
CoreSecurity says it's found a vulnerability in AirLive security cameras.
Android devices are again in the crosshairs of malware developers: new adware and a malicious Nintendo game emulator are among the fresh exploit bait. Dark Reading previews some proofs-of-concept expected at BlackHat.
United Airlines suffered a system-wide issue with support software (flight safety was unaffected) that grounded many passengers this morning.
Australia may soften cyber export-control rules as its government thinks through their consequences. US debate on backdoors and encryption continues.
