Here are this week’s stories in SiliconANGLE. My most interesting story is about one man’s effort to improve the power grid in Ukraine, thanks to a very clever collection of Cisco networking gear that provides backups when the GPS systems are jammed by the Russians.
- Law enforcement in the US and UK have reveals years-long Russian-based cyber espionage campaigns against a wide collection of leaders in and out of government and industry.
- Akamai has figured out a very clever and involved vulnerability involving DNS, Active Directory, and DHCP that can result in major-league DNS spoofing and takeovers of devices. Too bad Microsoft considers this a feature and not a bug that requires some careful patching.
- A very nice treatment of the long history of Outlook email exploits that deserves your attention, given the sweep and scope and longevity of them. And again, with some better-late-than-ever efforts by Microsoft to close their numerous backdoors.
- Wiz acquires Rafft to improve their coverage of serverless and container security pipelines.
- Citrix Bleed ransomware is the gift that keeps on giving, and has been found in a series of credit union attacks that have disabled numerous banks.
