A Russian group that was behind the massive SolarWinds supply chain attack has returned with a fresh phishing campaign, according to Microsoft. This new campaign compromised a marketing firm used by the U.S. Agency for International Development - USAID - to send malicious messages to thousands.
SolarWinds has uncovered evidence that intruders were in its systems in January 2019, about eight months earlier than originally believed. CEO Sudhakar Ramakrishna says the company discovered the clues by analyzing terabytes of data from its virtual build systems.
Investigators at industrial cybersecurity specialist Dragos say an employee of the water treatment plant in Oldsmar, Florida, where a cyberattack was thwarted, had visited an infected website the same day, but that apparently played no role in the security incident.
As technical director of the Attack Investigations Team at Symantec, a division of Broadcom, Eric Chien has access to intelligence and telemetry on the latest attack trends. He shares insights on supply chain attacks and more - and discusses how defenders can raise their game in response.
He's been a police officer, a Secret Service agent, a CIO and a CISO. And it all comes together. Don Cox, currently a chief technology evangelist at CIBR, discusses his career path and how his police background assists him in leading cybersecurity organizations.
When it comes to implementing XDR - cross-layered detection and response - enterprises need to be able to leverage their existing tools, says Aaron Sharp, cybersecurity consultant at Verizon Advanced Solutions.
Apple has patched a zero-day flaw in macOS 11.3 that attackers have been exploiting since at least January to install advertising software on victims' systems. The flaw enables a malicious script to be deployed that bypasses Notarization, Gatekeeper and File Quarantine security defenses.
Dan Kaminsky, a renowned security researcher, died last week at age 42. He gained cybersecurity fame in 2008 after discovering and helping to coordinate a patch for a massive security flaw in the internet's Domain Name System.
The FBI and CISA are warning of continued cyberthreats stemming from Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service, or SVR, which the Biden administration formally accused of carrying out the SolarWinds supply chain attack. A joint alert describes how Russian attackers are targeting vulnerable networks.
Researchers at RiskIQ say they've discovered more than a dozen previously undocumented command-and-control servers used in the SolarWinds supply chain attack, showing that the cyberespionage operation was much larger than previously identified.
An advanced persistent threat group gained long-term access to an unnamed entity's network through its Ivanti Pulse Secure VPN and SolarWinds' Orion server and then installed Supernova malware, according to the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
While the Biden administration is betting that the latest round of sanctions aimed at Russia and its economy will help deter the country's cyber operations, several U.S. agencies used the sanctions announcement as an opportunity to pull back the curtain on the tactics of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service.
With more than 2,000 security vendors cataloged and organizations reporting an average of 45 security solutions deployed, why aren’t we any closer to solving the threat detection gap? Mark Alba on Anomali discusses the promise of XDR.
To help mitigate the risks of state-sponsored cyberattacks against India's critical infrastructure - and improve detection and response - requires industry collaboration and information sharing, root cause analysis with specialized forensics, and better testing of code, a panel of experts says.
