7MS #439: Cyber News - Ransomware is Definitely Still a Thing Edition
Happy October and merry Halloween everybody! We're back with our buddy Joe "the machine" Skeen who is also now a Principal Security Engineer for 7MS! He's also working on a new cert, and speaking of certs, 7MS is now PCIP certified!
Today's great cyber stories include:
Ransomware sophistication continues to grow - as demonstrated in this story, this one and this one
Ransomware such as Ryuk can go from phishing email to total domain domination in 5 hours or less
Don't forget to patch - Microsoft remediated some doozies! Something like 0 patch looks particularly interesting to aid in your patching efforts (not a sponsor, but maybe some day ;-)
P.S. We've got a Halloween Webinar coming up Friday with our friends at Netwrix - sign up and we'll see you there!
