December 2, 2022 By Paul Ducklin “But this update is mysterious even by Apple’s usually tight-lipped standards, with the company living up to, and perhaps even beyond, its official statement that the it “doesn’t disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until an investigation has occurred and patches or releases are generally available.”Apple insists that this veil of secrecy exists “[f]or the protection of our customers”, and if silence really is golden when it comes to cybersecurity updates, then we can only assume there’s an awfully serious bug getting fixed this time round.” iOS 16.1.2 (details available soon) – iPhone 8 and later – 30 Nov 2022 >> Full Article <<

In other cybersecurity news, Trigona ransomware has emerged as a new worldwide threat.Australia to increase fines for data breachesThe Australian Parliament will increase fines for companies who have suffered a data breach, up to AU$50 million. The current fine for a data breach of an Australian company is a mere AU$2.2 million, which is a negligible amount to many of the companies who have suffered a data leak. This new bill arrives in the wake of a long series of cyberattacks on Australian companies, which have shaken the country and exposed extremely sensitive information on ~20 million Australian citizens.Ransomware attack in Virginia Officials for Southampton County, Virginia have recently revealed that one of their servers had been encrypted during a pote
I play an online casino game. While in the middle of playing one of the games the screen suddenly goes black even though I am still logged into the casino game. When the reload button comes on it will not reload. I have to exit completely and sign back in to the game. So far this black screen has not affected any other action.
CryWiper masquerades as ransomware, but its real purpose is to permanently destroy data. DAN GOODIN - 12/2/2022 Mayors' offices and courts in Russia are under attack by never-before-seen malware that poses as ransomware but is actually a wiper that permanently destroys data on an infected system, according to security company Kaspersky and the Izvestia news service.Kaspersky researchers have named the wiper CryWiper, a nod to the extension .cry that gets appended to destroyed files. Kaspersky says its team has seen the malware launch “pinpoint attacks” on targets in Russia. Izvestia, meanwhile, reported that the targets are Russian mayors' offices and courts. Additional details, including how many organizations have been hit and whether the malware successfully wiped data, weren’t immediately known. >> Full Article <<
Following a year of increasingly disruptive attacks, advanced persistent threat groups will likely only become emboldened in 2023, security experts say. December 2, 2022 By Robert Lemos In November, Ukraine's president revealed that the country's IT defenses fended off more than 1,300 Russian cyberattacks, including attacks on satellite communications infrastructure.The onslaught of cyberattacks highlights one of the shifts in advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks seen in the past year: In 2022, geopolitical tensions ratcheted up, and along with them, cyber operations became the go-to strategy for national governments. While Russia and other nations have used cyberattacks to support military actions in the past, the ongoing war represents the most sustained cyber operation to date and one that will undoubtedly continue in the coming year, experts say. >> Full Article <<

Why am I unable to access the Webroot console on Webroot mobile? When I click on the Webroot mobile app it takes me to a Chrome web page.
When will Mobile and Chromebook devices be displayed in the My Account Portal? I am accessing my account via the New Carbonite Webroot portal page. I am on the Security Summary and I should have 5 devices. Only 2 PC’s show up. Nothing for the phones or chromebook. How I am supposed to know how many keycodes I have left and where they were distributed? Also, if I had to deactivate one of these devices (because I have a two year subscription) there’s no way to do that either. The older portal had many features you could run directly from it. They were under the COMMANDS section. There was SCAN, System Optimizer, Restart PC, DEACTIVATE, Cleanup, Lock PC, Shutdown PC. It also required the security code one created when logging in.But the new Carbonite portal is missing these features. They added security questions but not the security code. And there are no Commands like I listed above.The whole thing is very confusing from a consumer point of view.

I have been running quarterly phishing simulations to keep our users on their toes. I noticed that a handful of users are flagged as deferred in the Campaign Phishing Line Data. Do you often have deferred emails to your users? Do you care about them? Should we do anything about this? Thanks!
Everytime I go on Google Chrome, Mcaffee and Norton bombard me with at least 20 virus warnings that my computer is infected. I must carefully close each screen by selecting the x in the middle of the screen on the right side. I had my Geek Squad people remove the problem a week ago but it has returned. It has obviously embedded itself into my PC.
I start the scan, the scan cancels after 4 seconds. Subscription is current.
