Welcome to another edition of the newsletter! This week we cover things such as how “omnipotent” hackers tied to NSA hid for 14 years—and were found at last, and “The Great Bank Heist” which has been reported in mainstream media during the week. We also cover things such as how there is more evidence tying North Korea to the Sony hack and that there are Microsoft phishing emails being sent out that target corporate users and deliver malware which evades sandboxes.
