Notes on Hancitor malware, WireX Android DDoS botnet discovered and taken down by an industry consortium. BGP fumble hit Japan’s Internet, not hackers. Hurricane Harvey and Game of Thrones phishbait in circulation. Justin Harvey from Accenture on open source threat intelligence. Avi Reichental from XponentialWorks on security issues with implantable data devices. And no, not that GPS.
