Iowa caucus problems induced by buggy counting and reporting app. Bitbucket repositories used to spread malware. Gamaredon active again against Ukraine. Charming Kitten’s phishing.

The attack on Toll Group turns out to be Mailto ransomware. The Gamaredon Group is active, against, against Ukrainian targets. Charming Kitten’s been phishing. And there’s a new legal theory out and about: the pain-in-the-ass defense. (We know some colleagues who’d plead to that.) Justin Harvey from Accenture on DNS over HTTPS (DoH).
