Labour Party reports a cyberattack. What the Lazarus Group is up to. Platinum adds a quiet backdoor. Buran competes on price. PCI DSS compliance falling. Ahoy, Yantar.
The UK’s Labour Party says it was hacked, but unsuccessfully. The Lazarus Group seems to be back out and about, and apparently interested in India. The Platinum threat actor continues to prospect Southeast Asian targets with stealthy malware, and a new backdoor. Buran tries to take black market share in the ransomware-as-a-service souk. Paycard standard compliance is down. And is that a spy ship we see, or are you just looking at the seabed, all for science?
