week in security

A week in security (April 19 – 25)

Last week on Malwarebytes Labs, we interviewed Youssef Sammouda, a 21-year-old bug bounty hunter who is focused on finding vulnerabilities on Facebook.

We looked into the CodeCov supply-chain attack, the vulnerabilities in Pulse Secure VPN that are being actively exploited by attackers, and the discovery of SUPERNOVA malware found on a SolarWinds Orion server.

We also featured technology, particularly facial recognition, used by the FBI to identify one of the Capitol rioters several months after it happened; we covered news about a FIN7 sysadmin being indicted for 10 years for “billions in damage”; and the calling out of EU’s proposed ban on the use of artificial intelligence, because it doesn’t deal with its potential for high abuse. Lastly, we have provided a comprehensive guide on how to pick the best VPN for you, whether you stream, play video games, or torrent.
