Russia’s digital warfare campaign isn’t limited to targeting distant servers. The Wall Street Journal has learned that Russian hackers are targeting individual NATO soldiers near, such as those deployed to Poland and the Baltic states. The intruders are compromising phones or Facebook accounts, in some cases grabbing data from handsets and erasing contacts. And while the Russian government has historically denied involvement in any hacking campaign, officials have little doubt that it’s behind the attacks.
AS HUNDREDS OF undocumented immigrants were rounded up across the country last February in the first mass raids of the Trump administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials went out of their way to portray the people they detained as hardened criminals, instructing field offices to highlight the worst cases for the media and attempting to distract attention from the dozens of individuals who were apprehended despite having no criminal background at all.On February 10, as the raids kicked off, an ICE executive in Washington sent an URGENT directive to the agencys chiefs of staff around the country. Please put together a white paper covering the three most egregious cases, for each location, the acting chief of staff of ICEs Enforcement and Removal Operations wrote in the email. If a location has only one egregious case then include an extra egregious case from another city.

Apple har släppt en viktig säkerhetsuppdatering för High Sierra. Uppdateringen täpper till ett säkerhetshål där lösenord för en krypterad disk kunnat avläsas.
Uppdateringen åtgärdar också ett säkerhetshål där lösenord kan avläsas under vissa omständigheter från Keychain.
Description: If a hint was set in Disk Utility when creating an APFS encrypted volume, the password was stored as the hint. This was addressed by clearing hint storage if the hint was the password, and by improving the logic for storing hints.

THE GROWING PROPENSITY of government hackers to reuse code and computers from rival nations is undermining the integrity of hacking investigations and calling into question how online attacks are attributed, according to researchers from Kaspersky Lab.In a paper set for release today at the Virus Bulletin digital security conference in Madrid, the researchers highlight cases in which theyve seen hackers acting on behalf of nation-states stealing tools and hijacking infrastructure previously used by hackers of other nation-states. Investigators need to watch out for signs of this or risk tracing attacks to the wrong perpetrators, the researchers said.
