Ten years ago, psychiatrist Jeffrey Rouse was on a clear path toward academia. He spent most of his days hunkered down in a research lab, staring at MRI images of brains. Then Hurricane Katrina upended his world.
The popular code repository website GitHub was hit by a cyber attack on Tuesday morning, just a few months after it suffered a massive and enduring distributed denial of service attack, which was linked to China.
Last week, we saw the group behind a significant amount of Angler exploit kit (EK) switch to Neutrino EK. We didn't know if the change was permanent, and I also noted that criminal groups using EKs have quickly changed tactics in the past. This week, the group is back to Angler EK.
