Ukraine's government talks about offense vs. defense. The FCC issues a rule on foreign use of U.S. airtime. And CafePress is ordered to pay redress for a breach. This is CyberScoop for March 16.

Ukrainian cyber official offers updates on ongoing attacks

Ukrainian government cyber experts are primarily focused on defending their country's critical infrastructure and other assets, as opposed to attacking Russian targets, a top government official told reporters Tuesday. Victor Zhora, the deputy chairman of the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine, said that while his focus is on defense, he's "grateful" for any efforts by volunteers or others who may be launching attacks on Russia. He also confirmed a recent report about the major impact of the hack of modems that route communications and internet traffic via satellite, but offered little detail. The NSA and other Western intelligence agencies are investigating that incident, Reuters has reported. AJ Vicens has more.

FCC mandates disclosure for foreign governments buying air time

The Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday began requiring disclosure from broadcasters allowing foreign governments to lease air time. The agency says the move comes in response to an increasing number of incidents in which foreign governments, especially the Chinese and Russians, have taken over airwaves without the public being notified. The National Association of Broadcasters is suing to stop the rule change. Suzanne Smalley has the story.


Can we get that on a T-shirt?

The Federal Trade Commission is requiring customized merchandise platform CafePress to pay victims of a 2019 data breach $500,000 in redress. The regulator accused the company of inadequately securing user data and ignoring known security threats, failures which led to a February 2019 breach in which a hacker accessed millions of email addresses and passwords. The company then waited months to notify customers. Tonya Riley checks in.


Ireland slams Facebook

Ireland’s Data Protection Commission on Tuesday issued a roughly $18.6 million fine against Facebook owner Meta related to how it handled European Union user data in the wake of 12 different breaches in 2018. The decision doesn’t list the 12 breaches cited in the complaint, but the series of security flubs that year is well-documented. A widespread breach in October 2018 allowed hackers to steal tokens granting access to the profiles of 30 million users. Another bug exposed nearly 7 million users’ photos to developers for roughly 12 days in September 2018. Tonya has this one, too.
