Social media bans on Trump expand. The Department of Justice clarifies details about the SolarWinds hack. And Nissan says some source code might've been exposed. This is CyberScoop for Thursday, Jan. 7, 2020.

Misinformation earns Trump first bans on Facebook, Twitter

President Donald Trump woke up Thursday without access to two of his biggest platforms. By mid-morning, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company's lockdown of the president's account would continue at least two weeks, through Inauguration Day, and possibly "indefinitely" after that. Twitter had instituted a temporary ban Wednesday evening and had not announced further action as of midday Thursday. The pivot point was a video in which Trump told violent intruders in the Capitol Building to go home but also <a href="https://www.cyberscoop.com/trump-twitter-facebook-ban/">repeated the same baseless claims</a> about the integrity of the 2020 election that fired up the mob in the first place. Joe Warminsky has the details.

Justice Department confirms SolarWinds hackers accessed emails

The Justice Department on Wednesday became the latest federal agency to detail how suspected Russian hackers had infiltrated its networks, saying that the attackers had accessed some 3% of Microsoft Office 365 email accounts used at the department. Justice IT officials discovered the malicious activity on Christmas Eve, more than 10 days after news of the SolarWinds espionage campaign broke. Sean Lyngaas has more.


Nissan investigates possible source code leak

Nissan North America says the source code for its mobile apps, marketing tools and more might have been exposed. The company is investigating, according to a spokesperson. The software engineer who discovered the alleged data leak said a poorly configured server is to blame: The username and password combo was "admin" and "admin." More from Tim Starks.


NYSE flip-flops on Chinese telecoms

The New York Stock Exchange said Wednesday it will delist several Chinese telecommunications firms that allegedly worked with the Chinese military. The stock exchange had been all over the place on whether to delist: It first said last week it would remove China Telecom, China Unicom and China Mobile in order to comply with a Trump administration executive order. The NYSE then tried to backpedal on Monday after “further consultation with relevant regulatory authorities.” The final decision Wednesday to delist came after a Treasury Department office issued further guidance. Shannon Vavra has the details.
