400Gb DDoS, More Bitcoin Attacks, and The Mask APT
If you’re looking for a quick synopsis of the latest information security news and advisories, our quick weekly video can provide it for you. This week’s episode was shot literally right before I had to run out to catch a plane, so please excuse the low quality webcam footage.
Today’s episode includes a quick rundown of the week’s Microsoft and Adobe patches, news about the latest world record-breaking DDoS attack, some Bitcoin hijinks, and the details around a new cross-platform advanced attack campaign discovered by Kaspersky. Check out the video for all the details, and give the Reference section a peek for links to other infosec stories, including last minute news of a new Internet Explorer (IE) zero day attack.
Have a great weekend (and President’s Day for US readers), and be careful online.
