*** Bitcoin Mining Operation Seen Across Numerous Malware Families ***
---------------------------------------------
The talent over at Malwarebytes broke a story this week regarding Fake Flash Player phishing attempts dropping malicious content onto victim machines for the purpose of mining Bitcoins.

*** Attacking Online Poker Players ***
---------------------------------------------
This story is about how at least two professional online poker players had their hotel rooms broken into and their computers infected with malware.

*** P2P-Botnetz ZeroAccess kaum tot zu kriegen ***
---------------------------------------------
Die gemeinsame Aktion von Microsoft, dem FBI und Europol, die zum Ziel hatte, das Klickbetrug-Botnetz ZeroAccess lahmzulegen schoss wohl größtenteils am Ziel vorbei. Das Botnetz scheint nach wie vor quicklebendig.

*** Old Apple Safaris leave IDs and passwords for scavengers to peck ***
---------------------------------------------
... the problem derives from Safaris retention of browser history as applied in the "Reopen All Windows from Last Session" feature that enables users to quickly revisit the sites they opened during a previous Safari session. Sadly, however, Kaspersky has found that the document Safari creates to allow such restoration is in plaintext and contains user IDs and passwords. The file is hidden, but isnt hard to find once you know what you are looking for.

*** Newly launched 'HTTP-based botnet setup as a service' empowers novice cybercriminals with bulletproof hosting capabilities - part three ***
---------------------------------------------
In a series of blog posts throughout 2013, we emphasized on the lowering of the entry barriers into the world of cybercrime, largely made possible by the rise of managed services, the re-emergence of the DIY (do-it-yourself) trend, and the development of niche market segments, like the practice of setting up and offering bulletproof hosting for a novice cybercriminal's botnet generating platform.
