Our top story today is some research from Palo Alto Networks about a group they call MuddyWater. It shows that malware authors are moving quickly and targeting their victims very precisely. The report shows that the authors also planted a “false flag” of another piece of malware on their control servers to divert attention from their actions, and how Palo Alto builds on the work of other research groups around the world. Threat hunting is a very collaborative business.
Happy holidays for those of you celebrating. Our next newsletter will arrive next Monday.
