U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense Systems Fail Cybersecurity Audit
A U.S. Department of Defense Inspector General report released this week outlines the inadequate cybersecurity practices being used to protect the United States' ballistic missile defense systems (BMDS ).
Ballistic missile defense systems are used by the U.S.A. to counter short, medium, intermediate and long range ballistic missiles that target the United States of America. As these systems are controlled by computers and software, they are at risk for being targeted by state-sponsored attacks that attempt to gain control of the systems, damage them, or steal classified information & source code.

Twitter uncovered a possible nation-state attack
Experts at Twitter discovered a possible state-sponsored attack while they were investigating an information disclosure vulnerability affecting its support forms. The experts discovered that the attack was launched from IP addresses that may be linked to nation-state actors.
The flaw affected a support form that could be used to contact Twitter in case of problems with an account. The flaw could have been exploited to obtain the country code of a user’s phone number and determine whether or not the account had been locked by Twitter.
An account could be locked if it violates rules or terms of service, or if the account was compromised. The social media platform fixed the flaw on November 15, in just 24 hours.
