Basefarm SIRT newsletter Week 14

Top headlines from this week include information from Brian Krebs regarding who possibly wrote the Flashback OS X worm that infected a lot of Mac users last year. Bitcoin has also seen a surge in the economy, and with that came attacks on bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox as well as a hack of the Bitcoin wallet site Instawallet. We’ve also seen Scribd get hacked, causing user accounts and encrypted passwords to be stolen, along with a new malware that targets Apache that have hijacked 20000+ sites.
