Belarus state-linked hackers are targeting government and military entities in both Ukraine and Poland with spear-phishing campaigns that deliver remote access Trojans. Ukrainian authorities say the adversary is focusing on information stealing and remote control of targeted systems.
Security experts say China-based hackers are "leading their peers in the deployment of zero-days" in the wake of another wide-ranging attack that abused a flaw in Microsoft Outlook and used forged authentication tokens to access email accounts of governments in the United States and Western Europe.
Over five dozen British academics joined a widening group of technology firms and privacy groups in criticizing a U.K. government bill aimed at protecting children from online harassments by weakening encryption. In an open letter, they said the bill is "doomed to fail."
Cloudflare and Check Point joined Proofpoint and Microsoft atop Forrester's email security rankings, while Trend Micro, Barracuda Networks and Mimecast tumbled from the leaders category. A number of security vendors have gotten into email protection in recent years by acquiring CAPES startups.
