BF-SIRT Newsletter 2013-46

This week, SIRT member Kian has written a write-up about the PCI-DSS meetup that he attended, which is definitely worth a read!
We also had Patch Tuesday this week, so make sure to patch your affected systems.
Some of our other recommendations to read are how popular site Cracked.com ended up serving malware to its visitors and how CryptoLocker have surged since the author of BlackHole got caught.

Next week, the newsletter will take a break, but will return on week 48 as usual.
