*** VBScript Malware SOYSOS Deletes CAD Files ***
---------------------------------------------
Cybercriminals can do just as much damage deleting users´ data as stealing it because file deletion can result in both data or monetary loss. One example would be CryptoLocker, which became notorious for combining the two - demanding money with the threat of data destruction. We recently came across a malware, detected as VBS_SOYSOS, that deletes important image files including .DWG files.

*** How To Combat Online Surveillance ***
---------------------------------------------
Governments have transformed the internet into a surveillance platform, but they are not omnipotent. They´re limited by material resources as much as the rest of us. We might not all be able to prevent the NSA and GCHQ from spying on us, but we can at least create more obstacles and make surveilling us more expensive. The more infrastructure you run, the safer the communication will be.

*** Why Crimekit Atrax will attract attention ***
---------------------------------------------
CSIS researchers have observed an introduction of a new commercial crimekit being sold on several underground web forums. The kit is dubbed 'Atrax' and is both a cheap kit - costs less than $250 for the main platform - as well as it utilizes the TOR protocol for stealthy communication with C&Cs from where it is intended to get instructions, updates and new modules.

*** Blackhole and Cool Exploit Kits Nearly Extinct ***
---------------------------------------------
When authorities in Russia arrested Paunch, the alleged creator of the Blackhole exploit kit, last month, security researchers and watchers of the malware underground predicted that taking him off the board would put a dent in the use of Blackhole and force its customers onto other platforms. Six weeks later, it now appears that Blackhole is almost gone and the Cool exploit kit, another alleged creation of Paunch, has essentially disappeared, as well.
