Each week, the PhishLabs team posts a collection of noteworthy cybercrime articles and reports (open source).
- One of the criminals behind SpyEye has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and bank fraud.
- This wasn't a good week for Android. Researchers discovered the first Android bootkit, which has already compromised 350k devices. Plus, a malicious app called Guger made it into the Google Play store.
- Some false alarms went out in the media after a court aide claimed outages to U.S. federal judicial system websites were due to a DDoS attack. Turns out it was a bug.
- Which leads to some great DDoS advice from Tim Turner, the CIO behind LiveJournal. It's critical to recognize the attack (and rule out alternative causes) quickly.
- Yahoo Mail accounts are being targeted in a coordinated attack, forcing Yahoo! to reset credentials for those impacted.
