Online scammers use all sorts of ways to separate cryptoinvestors from their prized bitcoin. They create fake news sites and promise helicopter money. They even post screenshots in Lightshot with “cryptowallet login credentials” — this being a trap for folks who have a weakness for other folks’ secrets and a free lunch. We recently uncovered a new scheme in which YouTube users are lured to a fake cryptoexchange through videos about a “bug” that supposedly lets them take advantage of a huge discrepancy in exchange rates.

IoT devices have long been an integral part of the technological and production processes of many modern companies. They are used in industrial facilities, in smart buildings, and in everyday office life. However, their safety has always raised concerns. Especially considering that many devices require access to remote systems via the Internet — for firmware updates, monitoring, or management. In fact, the introduction of IoT devices into corporate infrastructure greatly increases the attack surface, and there is no way to equip every device with protective technologies.

The cybersecurity strategies of the Five Eyes alliance are a relevant source of information to understand the coming trends of cyber warfare and cyberterrorism. The Five Eyes nations – Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States – are attractive targets for other nation-states due to the members’ economic, military and technological advantages. As the five countries face similar threats online, each Five Eyes government developed its long-term strategy to address the cybersecurity challenges in the future.

On Tuesday Brendan Carr, a commissioner on America’s Federal Communications Commission,warned on Twitter that TikTok, owned by China-based company ByteDance, “doesn’t just see its users dance videos:
It collects search and browsing histories, keystroke patterns, biometric identifiers, draft messages and metadata, plus it has collected the text, images, and videos that are stored on a device’s clipboard.

TikTok’s China-based employees accessed data on U.S. TikTok users, BuzzFeed had reported — after which TikTok announced it intends to move backup data to servers in the U.S., allowing them to eventually delete U.S. data from their servers. But days later Republican Senator Blackburn was still arguing to Bloomberg that “Americans need to know if they are on TikTok, communist China has their information.”

Getting hacked sucks. It’s even worse if you’re a digital creator whose social media accounts literally pay your bills. When creators get hacked, it can mean that they aren’t able to post sponsored content, earn payments from badges or operate their Instagram shops — it’s debilitating, like if a chef broke their arm and had to cook with one hand.
