Congress is moving again on increased incident reporting by critical industry sectors. The president picks a privacy issue for attention. And the experts caution ICANN not to make any sudden moves on Russian internet domains. This is CyberScoop for March 2.

Cyber incident reporting bill gets un-stuck in the Senate

On Tuesday evening the Senate passed legislation it had trouble getting out of the chamber last year: a bill that would require critical infrastructure owners and operators to report to CISA when they suffer major cyberattacks or make a ransomware payment. It's an idea that's been in the works since the aftermath of the SolarWinds compromise at the end of 2020, an incident that spread to federal agencies and tech companies and that lawmakers fear might've been worse if not for FireEye voluntarily disclosing that it was a victim. The measure still has to make it through the House, though, before it can advance to the president's desk. Tim Starks breaks it down.

Biden promotes children's privacy in SOTU

President Biden called on Congress to pass a law strengthening privacy protections for children in his annual State of the Union address Tuesday night. The White House’s goals include banning targeted advertising for children, stopping discriminatory algorithmic decision-making and investing at least $5 million in fiscal 2023 toward research on social media’s effects on mental health. Leaders in Congress who have already introduced legislation that would take on the task welcomed the president's remarks. Tonya Riley reports.


The downsides of cutting off .ru domains

Ukrainian officials are asking Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to shut down Russian domains, such as .ru, to help curb propaganda and other tactics from Russia as it invades Ukraine. So far ICANN hasn't agreed to the request, but experts warn that if it does it could hurt Russian civilians more than the Russian government or military by making indviduals more vulnerable to some cyberattacks and making it more difficult to access legitimate news sources. Tonya Riley has this one, too.


Belarus-based hackers might be phishing NATO refugee management

A hacking group with a history of targeting NATO countries with disinformation on divisive issues such as refugee movement may be using compromised Ukrainian military members' emails in an ongoing phishing campaign, cybersecurity firm Proofpoint reported Monday. The company stopped short of definitive attribution, but the campaign has hallmarks of previous campaigns by a group known variously as T445, UNC1151 or Ghostwriter. The Ukrainian government and private cybersecurity firms say the group is a Minsk-based effort serving the interest of Belarus and Russia. AJ has the research.


Nvidia confirms hack, stolen info

U.S. chip maker Nvidia said Tuesday that hackers last week stole employee user logins and proprietary company data. A ransomware group, Lapsus$, says it's leaking Nvidia data, but the company said it had no evidence of ransomware being deployed into its systems. "We are aware that the threat actor took employee credentials and some NVIDIA proprietary information from our systems and has begun leaking it online," a spokesperson said, but didn't answer questions about reports that the attack had forced the company to partially shut down operations for two days. Tim has more.
